Yet, I did not see one ticket on a car, and I'd like to thank you for being so compassionate to students during this time. When permits became...

Opposing viewpoints – weighing in on reality TV

Shannon Kuhfuss and Heidi Stenquist

April 7, 2008

Shannon Kuhfuss City Times This year's writers' strike has left television viewers with few options of what to watch in place of their old favorites. Network executives seem to think the answer to the lack of well-written television is reality TV. What kind of society are we living in where replacing award-winning shows such as "The Office" with shows with titles such as...

February 26, 2008

Heidi Stenquist City Times Is it me or am I the only one who's frustrated driving to school everyday, dealing with a lack of parking that's made worse by several wasted spaces I could've parked in if someone had just pulled forward? Leaving large gaps of space between cars has got to stop. Please . it's driving me crazy! The misfortune of not being able to fit somewhere...

Emily Pfaff

December 11, 2007

Dear America, Wake up. We're living in a cage, and what few liberties we were granted are being stripped daily. We are spoon fed from birth through electric TV currents, radio waves, and "faith." We're brainwashed. America was founded on the exploitation of its inhabitants and that same exploitation continues today. Our ability to take a hot shower, or blast the A/C comes at...
