So what is it that journalists do?

It seems like the relationship between The Panther and the Chapman community has been on the rocks lately, but not the enjoyable kind – yet, perhaps, still rimmed in salt and accompanied by a bitter tang. This tension has many causes, but much of it stems from an unfortunate misunderstanding of our purpose as journalists, as Chapman students and ...

The Holy Grail was said to be the cup that Jesus drank from at the Last Supper, also used to catch his blood as he died on the cross. As time progressed, the Grail was lost.
