During the past year, I have written about everything from the opening of new and expensive stadiums, to the lack of Richmond football during Family Weekend, to the transgressions of professional athletes and the demise of Binghamton's basketball program.
Today, I was reading a report by the Urban Institute entitled "The Cost of Failure" which detailed what will happen if we don't pass health care reform. The numbers are staggering and, in my shock, I could not help but share the information with some of my friends. About 30 seconds after I opened my mouth, I realized my friends either a) didn't care or b) didn't understand. Regardless of what the case may be, this experience got me thinking about health care reform and the degree to which young people have involved themselves in this vast and impactful conversation.
There you go again
Quite frankly, Tiffani Lewis-Lockheart, you chose to make your response article a personal attack; your efforts to mask disdain are fairly thin. Secondly, I didn't think that J. Isaiah Bailey was speaking for all of us; rather, it was his own testimony. It just happens to be the bitter reality that, whether this is true in your own social bubble or not, quite a number of black students on campus have at least one experience that resonates with Bailey's poem. If you would like to verify this, randomly select ten black students you haven't met and ask them about their experiences on campus.
Well, University of Richmond, it's time. On March 25, which is the date of the next Collegian issue because of spring break, The Collegian will have its next news editor, and I will hand over the reigns. I will have a Rice Report, but I wanted to say a few final words before doing introductions.
When I decided to write a response to last week's "poem" I had to keep in mind not to make it something personal against the author Isaiah Bailey. However, it's a difficult task because what he wrote was personal; his personal experience that he tried to generalize to all of us, something I take issue with.
I applaud U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning. Not because he held up $10 billion from the unemployed. Not because he stood up to the Democrats. Not for saying "tough shit" to another senator (well, maybe because of that, too). I applaud Bunning for being a congressman finally able to stand up for something he actually feels strongly about. President Obama has accused the GOP, rightfully, for being a party of no. This is absolutely correct. But the GOP has been a party of no because of partisanship, not because of what they think. Bunning's recent blocking of funding for the unemployed was not a political move. First of all, politicians just aren't going to risk their reputation over $10 billion. Secondly, he is retiring. He is gaining absolutely no political advantage by voting against the bill.
In a few short days, Tiger Woods went from representing all that's good about sports, to all that's wrong with them.
Was there a really important game in American football recently? Huh, I just can't seem to remember whether there was or not ... oh, wait ... I remember now: The New Orleans Saints defeated the Indianapolis Colts for their first Super Bowl win in franchise history.
There seem to be several places and things on campus that no one knows about. We see them every day and ask the person with whom we're walking to D-Hall (or ourselves), "What is that?" or "Who does that belong to?" or "I wonder whether we have any buildings built over an old swimming pool?"
Would you like to hear the truth, I know I do
Two weekends ago, I had the extreme misfortune of taking care of an under-21 friend (I'll call him Fred) who had had too much to drink. Luckily, someone (I don't remember who) was able to escort Fred back to his room (Fred and I are neighbors). I had spent the night in, quite sober.
Oddly enough, you can.
February for college basketball usually involves chatter about March Madness and which of the most competitive programs received the highest poll ranking. This has not been the case for Binghamton University.
Don't look now, but the University of Richmond men's basketball team is marching toward March Madness.
It has the largest circulation of any newspaper in America. It is consistently listed among the most widely disseminated papers in the world. It has received 33 Pulitzer Prizes and started publication in 1889. As you can see, The Wall Street Journal should need no introduction - except maybe on the University of Richmond's campus.
Ever set your clean clothes in a glob of glue-like detergent that's been lying in wait on top of the washing machine?
The other week I was at an apartment party. Upon arrival, a friend of mine introduced me to an older girl in her sorority. The girl smiled politely and shook my hand. Without asking how I was or where I was from, she proceeded to ask me which sorority I belonged to. After I told her, she said, "Oh, but which sorority did you want to be in?" Puzzled, I walked away wondering why she had asked me that.
First, let me preface what I'm going to say (or I guess write) by stating that I love "the tight black pants" and all the accentuating features they provide to an attractive female body, in addition to the comfort and flexibility they provide for all. (Yes, I've worn a pair.)
Some people are natural automobile operators. In swift arcs of the ankle, these naturals slow to barely noticeable stops without promoting even the slightest hint of jolting motion. With smooth panoramic vision, these people are constantly and acutely aware of even the smallest of insignificancies — such as squirrels, stop signs or pedestrians. With one-handed ease, they turn the car without facing oncoming traffic at the turn's completion. They drive fast. They drive fearlessly. I move aside for them as though they are all emergency vehicles.
