The breakdown of your relationship and power

We lied last time when we said we would give you more translations this semester. As a group, the tenants of 507 decided it would be more worthwhile to explore the various perspectives existing in relationships that create particular power dynamics between two people involved with each other. A word of caution for you, dear reader!


Opinion

Letter: Pending health care panel

Should health care be universal? What about a public option? Will the quality of health care diminish? These are just some of the questions that will be discussed by a distinguished panel of medical professionals Nov.

Letter: come out for homecoming, make football history

Even though you've never been up at 5:30 a.m. for football practice, lifting weights, running, stretching, being yelled at, yelling back - during the summer (when many of you were on a beach, in Europe, traveling or just preparing to come/come back to this most beautiful campus), YOU can truly MAKE A DIFFERENCE if you come this Saturday at 2:30 p.m.


Opinion

Letter: Response to the R. Crumb protest

First of all, I think that being deeply offended by the themes exhibited in Robert Crumb's work is the natural and indeed commendable response that any decent human being should feel when looking at one of Crumb's cartoons.


Opinion

Letter: Crumb in Context, and Wagner

Sunday evening I received a school-wide email attempting to place Robert Crumb in context to a situation in which the university's true goal seems to remove him from his past.


Opinion

Letter: Rape = Academic Freedom?

"Every woman has a rape fantasy. Every man, deep down ... hates women." - Robert Crumb, in a speech sponsored by the Modlin Center for the Arts If you didn't know any better, you might think this unbelievably misogynistic rhetoric was from one of those terrible scenarios you hear about in diversity training, but you would be mistaken.


Opinion

Richmond's fight to stay healthy

It's officially fall here in Richmond, but with temperatures in the 70s one day and the 40s the next, it's hard to enjoy the season, especially when you and everyone else are sick. The threat of the swine flu/H1N1 virus doesn't help matters much either.


Opinion

Predator characteristics and prey acceptance

Torn between a Halloween-themed article and one that would appease some readers' desire for something more in line with what they would expect from me as a columnist, I chose the latter, which means I am obliged to present more controversy.


Opinion

Wagner for Va. lieutenant governor

For those of us who follow Virginia politics, 2009 has been a year of Republican demagoguery, fear-mongering and partisan bickering that has contributed substantially to the failure to achieve an intellectually honest debate about the issues that actually matter to Virginians, such as transportation, education and economic growth.
