Boston knocks socks off

Keith Ferguson October 8, 2003
The fans, perhaps the main ingredient in making Boston the greatest baseball city, need no explanation. Simply enough, they have more of one thing then any other fans in baseball: hope. The Red Sox have not won a World Series since 1918. World War I was...

Cafeteria can’t replace Church

[email protected] October 8, 2003
Both of these were big issues, but the biggest issue I had with the article was the idea of "cafeteria Catholicism," which is not Catholicism at all. If people pick and choose what they wish to believe and puts that into the mouth of God, then they are...

Language needs liberation from helotry of like

Marianne Gosz October 8, 2003
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...

Critics miss point

Brian Collar September 22, 2003
Mate makes some sweeping generalizations and accusations regarding the ongoing conflict in Iraq. First, I'll admit that I'm a bit puzzled on the question of weapons of mass destruction. It seems to me that the president and our allies might like to offer...

Fair, balanced in the midst of all this criticism

[email protected] September 22, 2003
Although some might want me to censor one side, I refuse to do that. Speaking for my writings, I write it as I see it. Others, liberals and conservatives, should do the same. I'm a liberal in this column, but I check that at the door on production night....

Pepsi priced unfairly

[email protected] September 22, 2003
I am somewhat embarrassed that a $0.64 issue is finally driving me to take out the pen and rant in The Marquette Tribune. It's a little annoyance but, luckily, it has a very simple solution, so we can use this as a test to see how quickly the...

Bias burns MU conservatives

Joseph Wilke September 22, 2003
Several friends and I submitted Viewpoints to the Tribune last semester supporting President Bush's Iraq policy, while Tribune columnists and Viewpoint writers — including students like Mate — constantly bashed Bush and U.S. policy toward Iraq....

Posters reveal truth about history, U.S.

Michael Uhrich September 22, 2003
Next, she argues that "the 70,000 Salvadorans and four American nuns killed by the military rulers of El Salvador" was also the United States' fault. This El Salvadoran regime was supported by Jimmy Carter, not the Marquette College Republicans.
Finally,...

One with the universe

Sarah Sherman September 17, 2003
French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre said, "Hell is other people." I wonder if he knew how right he was. For each extra person in the universe, we are that much less together. There is only one, but it is scattered, and becoming even more so.
So yes,...

Fighting for free speech

Megan Inserra September 17, 2003
Inserra is a sophomore history and global politics major.

Television in everyday life

Marianne Gosz September 17, 2003
Around the world, Americans are often stereotyped as being out of touch with current events or, to be blunt, stupid. Many foreigners think we are egocentric, or that we are unable to see a world beyond the United States. This, of course, is a...
