The Red Ledger

Austin Keefer
If you give Austin Keefer an inch, he’ll run you halfway around the world before you can draw a breath to protest. A politically incorrect junior in his second year on The Red Ledger staff, Austin spent most of last year patiently biding his time until the day that he may rise up and seize control of the newspaper, thus putting the entire school in his power. Unfortunately for him, that day is yet to come, and so he continues his daily desk job with feigned cooperation and concealed peevishness, with a single word on his mind: “Soon.” The thing that likely brings more joy to Austin than anything else is his constant need to play Devil’s Advocate. Nowhere is this more prominently reflected than in his unhealthy obsession with often-reviled historical figures, including Benedict Arnold, Andrew Jackson, and George Custer. Not everything with Austin is so controversial, though. His hobbies include baseball, acting in plays, writing scripts, playing Xbox, nighttime strolls through his neighborhood, dressing like Frank Sinatra, and laughing like the Joker, the latter of which disturbs pretty much everybody. Nevertheless, if there’s one guy you can count on to dump gasoline on the fire, it’s Austin Keefer.
