Taylor Pope Former Staff

Taylor Pope has finally arrived at the apex of his high school career. His final two senior semesters are upon him. He has always played soccer or run circles around a track because of his apparent lack of hand eye coordination. Never the most out spoken student Taylor has found his calling in the study of writing, people and global economics. He enjoys passing his time with a friendly chat with his friends about the ever approaching economic downfall that coincides with the Mayan 2012 doom saying. His suggestion to all people is to flee the world as quickly as possible as it will not only save your life, but fix many economic problems on earth. Also, he would enjoy watching hundreds of space ships launch into space.
