Actors worthy of recognition, respect

[email protected] October 13, 2003
I'm not talking about busy schedules this time. I'm talking about pressure. First of all, I believe Mullin takes his many hours in the gym for granted. If an actor actually had time to roam free in the gym all day long, perhaps there wouldn't be as much...

Protests rally people to think

Language needs liberation from helotry of like

The word "like," in its slang form, became a Beatnik buzzword in the 1950s and first caught the attention of linguists in the 1980s after it was popularized by "Valley Girls." For example, it is not uncommon to hear, from females especially, "Like, oh my...

To those others of you who consider yourselves Republicans, I will strive to keep in mind that those responsible for this event do not necessarily represent your party nor even your campus organization as a whole. An admonition from you would have much...
