This year, Boston has finally defined itself as the greatest baseball city. The greatest fans have always called Boston their home, but this year the players and executives were able to mesh, as well. At the beginning of the year,...

It is the friend who seems to drink more beer than water, who misses class, life and conscious thought. He is defensive when asked about his drinking habits. He is an alcoholic in every sense of the word. Chances are you know...

Earlier this week, I was invited by some gentlemen to sign up for the Barbeque for Animal Rights. I proceeded to inform them that they had to be joking: Such a thing would obviously be a contradiction in terms, and in any case,...

Whether you want to believe it or not, Marquette students are having sex. Stop the average Marquette student, and they will agree that the Marquette student population is just as sexually active as any public school population....

Everyone who knows me would likely agree that I'm not a very outspoken individual. Heck, the only detention I ever had was for not talking during a study hall. However, after reading the column by Marianne Gosz last Thursday I...

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...

In response to Marianne Gosz's column two weeks ago, I would like to set the story straight. While Sarah Sherman's column took into account an average student athlete's time commitments for a given week, she didn't look specifically...

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...

I was very impressed by Bob Mate's world news exclusive — The Marquette Tribune is honored to be the first to print this discovery: "The College Republicans spent the night (9/11/01) ranting about an issue of their own making."...

Wilke is upset over the "liberal bent of the Tribune's content." Look at the Viewpoints section today. It's heavy on the Charlton Heston and short on the Susan Sarandon. Is this the "liberal bent"? If Wilke had read the entire...

Last Tuesday, Bob Mate put his two cents in against the sentiments expressed in Brian Baranowski's Viewpoint from the previous Thursday. I believe that Baranowski wrote a straightforward Viewpoint that respectfully challenged...
