Martyrdom–Our Path to Decency

The man who on a wintry January morning in 1961 admonished the nation to “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country,” has given his all to the nation, and for this, secured the wrath of an assassin’s bullet.

Cheers, jeers of the semester

Cheers to the university for adding new majors and minors and continuing to give students more choices. In the immortal words of "Schoolhouse Rock," "Knowledge is power!"

Jeers to the new meal plan. The administration failed to listen to student concerns from the conception of the plan. Now the lack of flexibility of the plan has robbed previously popular Pond Street Grill of business and students of options.

Cheers, jeers 2008

Cheers to the athletics department for ending the Neil Dougherty era. Six years and 108 losses later, they got the point. The cliche is true, nice guys finish last.

Nader’s candidacy a selfish decision

Will the real presidential candidate please stand up?

No, Ralph, not you.

For some reason, Ralph Nader has decided to run for president again, and Republicans everywhere must be jumping for joy.

Pigeon deaths explained

Having read with heavy heart of the untimely demise of some members of TCU’s pigeon population, I have come up with a list of possible explanations for this tragedy:

10.) It was a mass protest against the recent rise of tuition at TCU
9.) It was extreme performance art
