Perspective: Campus club’s name is hip, expresses irreverent humor

Frye, Jason

October 6, 2008

"Can Dykes be FAGS?" Asked the cheerful young woman as she picked up the pen to join our ranks. "Yes, yes dykes can be Fags." I replied, she giggled as she endorsed the green club packet. FAGS, FAGS, FAGS; OK we have it out of our systems. The gay group on campus calls itself FAGS. We are the Fellowship of Associated Gay Students (FAGS) & Straight Allies. Today liberal...

Perspective: Prop. 2 an opportunity to end factory farming abuses

Shabatay, Mike

October 6, 2008

Like most conscientious students, I support local farms, protecting animals from cruelty, and ensuring that the food I buy is safe. That's why I'm voting YES on Proposition 2. Proposition 2 requires that animals be given enough room to stand up, turn around, and extend their limbs. No one considers it acceptable to force a dog or cat to live in a filthy, cramped cage for...

Editorial: Club name overreaction on both sides

Shannon Kuhfuss

October 6, 2008

We, as the editors here at City Times, all seem to take the same stance on the FAGS name change controversy. We all tend to see both sides of the issue to hold some truth. It should have been no surprise that this big decision to change the group name from LGBTSU (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Student Union) to FAGS (Fellowship of Associated Gay Students) would bring...

LIVE AND LEARN: Inspired parking possibilities for students

Luis Bahena

September 22, 2008

LIVE AND LEARN Luis Bahena It's no surprise that parking sucks here at City College. Just the other day a professor had to cancel a class because he couldn't find parking. Yet for me, I've never had a problem with parking at City College. That is of course, I never paid the $30 for a parking permit, nor do I have to look for loose change in my car to pay the meter machines. Nope,...

“The FAGS are back” – Are the haters too?

Luis Bahena

September 8, 2008

LIVE AND LEARN By Luis Bahena It's hard for me to look at a big white poster with the word FAG on it and not get a reaction. Does it matter if it's in a poorly made poster that looks like it was vandalized? Maybe? Even still, the word resonates in my brain and I have to wonder. I have to take a closer look at the poster and quench my inquisitive mind's thirst and find out...

EDITORIAL – Threat of anxiety outweighs school-shooting threat

April 14, 2008

City Times Editorial Board Law enforcement is seriously undermining our generation if information regarding a possible school shooting is only being put out on a need-to-know basis in fear of a widespread panic frenzy. Most of us were in grade school when tragedy struck Columbine High School, and even more fresh in our minds is the shooting at Virginia Tech almost exactly...

Preventative health care costs make me sick

Evonne Ermey

April 14, 2008

Evonne Ermey City Times According to the Healthcare Marketplace Project, America spends almost 90 percent more on health care than other industrialized countries. We are home of the free, land of the brave, and owners of the most expensive health care in the world, and I, the quintessential starving student, have begun to feel the pinch. It seems that ever since I decided...
