Masculine Duties Over-Emphasized

Matt Esposito begins his article "Neglecting masculine duties causes women to suffer" by not so subtly patronizing The College's production of "The Vagina Monologues"....

Letter to the editor

VAGINA TALK As cast members and friends of the Vagina Monologues, we would like to address some previously expressed points of concern and confusion regarding...

Men’s tennis shuts out Stevens

From top to bottom, the Lions' men's tennis team dominated the Stevens Institute of Technology Ducks on Saturday, defeating them 7-0. The win gives the Lions a record of 2-1 for the spring. Junior co-captain Justin Cook showed tenacity in second singles rallying back from a 0-5 deficit in the first set against Stevens' junior Steve Su.

NHL cruelly breaks hearts of hockey lovers

Last Tuesday was a beautiful day in so many ways. Outside the birds were chirping as the warm sun shined brightly. People were playing Frisbee out on the fields. And most importantly, it actually looked like the NHL was going to have a season. Wednesday started off in the same fashion.

Track teams come out on top at conference meet

After impressive performances by the College's indoor track and field team in both the Mercer County Duals and Thompson Invitational, it was only appropriate for the Lions to continue their dominance going into the New Jersey Athletic Association (NJAC) Championships this past weekend.

Lions lose two but still ranked first for NJAC playoffs

Suffering two losses may be tough, but it certainly helps to know that it does not matter in the standings. Montclair State University (MSU) handed the College's women's basketball team its second loss at home and second loss in conference action as the Red Hawks posted a 54-46 victory over the Lions in the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC).

Seven wrestlers earn spot in national meet

The College's wrestling team is now one step closer to the NCAA championships after an impressive team performance at the Metropolitan Conference Championships (METs) on Sunday. The winners at each individual weight class all gained entrance into the NCAA Division III Wrestling championships.

Swim teams take second at conference championships

"Harvest time" came this weekend for the College's men's and women's swimming and diving teams. Both teams capped their seasons with second-place finishes at the Metropolitan Conference Championships (METs) at Rutgers University. As the final meet of the season before the NCAA Championships, the METs serve as the primary qualifying meet for those wishing to advance to the national championship in Holland, Mich.

Lions stunned by rival Rowan to end season

It is hard to beat a team three times. The College's men's basketball team had beaten rival Rowan University by 22 and 21 in their previous two meetings this season, but the Profs stole one from the Lions on Monday night, dealing the College a heartbreaking 63-59 upset in the first round of the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) tournament and ending the Lions' season.

Editorial: Hunter S. Thompson, 1937 – 2005

It seems a strange night - Sunday, February 20, 2005 - for Hunter S. Thompson, PhD, aka Dr. Gonzo, aka Raoul Duke, to have put a bullet in his head, ending his 67-year-old life. It was, after all, the night of the NBA All-Star Game and Thompson had a Page Two column to pen for espn.

Clinton’s pro-life rhetoric requires pro-life action

In recent speeches, Sen. Hilary Clinton (D-N.Y.) adopted a conciliatory attitude toward the pro-life position. "I believe we can all recognize that abortion, in many ways, represents a sad, even tragic, choice to many, many women," she said. Clinton also said that she respected "those who believe with all their hearts and conscience that there are no circumstances under which any abortion should ever be available.

The march to apostasy neglects reason, responsibility

We are a society that loves apostasy (the act of leaving one's faith or party). When Denzel Washington stopped playing do-gooders and took up the mantle of corrupt cop Alonzo Harris in "Training Day," he won an Oscar. When Georgia Democrat Zell Miller, a one-time client of Paul Begala and James Carville, spoke at the Republican National Convention in support of President Bush, conservatives cheered.

Bush doctrine paves the way for a dangerous future

In October, I was asked to participate in a panel discussion and "put the Bush administration in a historical context." This pre-election forum asked me to look deep into the administration's record and come to terms with its place in the grand scope of U.

So far, so good — Rice is on the right foreign policy path

The one thing the Bush administration has been criticized about more than anything else is its foreign policy. Many believe that the war in Iraq was a mistake or that it was conducted for purely economic reasons. Because of it, the United States has lost favor in Europe, which has traditionally been an American ally.
