Weber State LJiMiXEr?siTrv EB EECZXPvI EE3 TTIHI IE CCZn Isl ED May 8, 1 998 - May 1 4, 1 998 QM O3 MODUS By Patrick Parkinson asst. news editor-7je Signpost The final tape is edited; advertising is sold, and in less than one week, the secrets behind the last episode of the television program "Seinfeld" will be revealed. After nine years on the air and the development of a somewhat religious following, whose members have, at times, been referred to as "Seinfeldists," the program will air its final episode Thursday. It is hard to believe a television program that has been marketed for nine years as a show about "nothing" can achieve such notoriety. But "Seinfeld" has. Of course, depending on who you ask, "Seinfeld" is not really about nothing. "Everybody says it's a show about nothing, but I think it is really a show about something," said Amanda Montague, a Weber State University student. "I think it's a show about all the little social rules we have set up for ourselves, all the little unspoken rules that nobody ever admits to." Montague elaborated by explaining an episode where Elaine was asking Jerry about how she should break up with her current lover. Jerry advised her, based on the number of times they had gone out, that she must do it in person. The break up could not take place over the phone. Besides the enlightenment of these "unspoken, social rules," Montague also enjoys "Seinfeld" because she said she can relate everyone she knows to a "Seinfeld" character. Since Jerry Seinfeld, cast member and co-creator of the program, publicly announced he was ending the program, rumors have flooded the Internet and other media as to how the innovative sitcom might end. Some of these rumors have commanded more attention than others, but all have been declared false by people associated with the program. We can assume that Jerry and Elaine are not "I've laughed at a few episodes of "Seinfeld." I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it. TV is bad unless it's basketball." Andrew Shafer WSU student getting married. Kramer, George, Elaine and Jerry are not going to drive off a cliff. And the four will probably not be moving to Los Angeles. In fact, perhaps because everyone who was allowed on the set for the final taping was sworn to confidentiality, including the cast members' families. The plot of the finale remains a mystery.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
