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,...

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...

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...

Sarah Rhomberg's Viewpoint, while obviously passionate, was in many ways naive. First, in calling the "Never Forget" posters "propaganda," she necessarily implies that the College Republicans had something to gain from the posters...

When I read "Rainbow Darkens MU's Image" by Brian Keener, my only response was repulsion. It sickens me that people continue to have such short-sighted views and insist on using biblical/religious texts to support their bigotry. Johnson...

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...

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...

You would probably think me insane if I were to begin this viewpoint by telling you that God came to me. In a way, you would be right. At the very least -- while not insane — I would be speaking inaccurately. French philosopher...

In one of Tuesday's viewpoints, Sarah Rhomberg complained about the posters put up by the Marquette College Republicans. She said that they "highlighted six crimes against U.S. citizens by people considered to be radical Islamic...

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,...

Everyone pull out your Universal Catechisms! After all, Marquette is a Catholic university. Jason L. Keener certainly used his Catechism in his Tuesday viewpoint berating the Gay/Staight Alliance rainbow flag in the Alumni Memorial...
