That's what the Michigan Daily editorial board has to say about a new study decrying a marked rise in college students' narcissism. "The level of change we have effected is truly remarkable, worthy of the great reformers of all time," the staff writes. One of their examples: "the Facebook group "David Beckham > Superman" set the record straight on a common misconception that catalyzes many of the world's most explosive conflicts, baffling even the most qualified of international relations theorists." Another example: Time magazine's December special issue, which declared the Person of the Year 2006 to be "You". "Considering out [sic] groundbreaking work in lip-synching songs on YouTube, and writing ourselves in as the current James Bond on Wikipedia, the award was well deserved," the staff writes.
