Liberal learning requirements limit students’ options

Since this is my eighth semester here at the College, I would be eligible to write a farewell column. Of course, that would imply that I am graduating. Unfortunately, this is not the case. I spent several semesters as a music education major before finally getting student teaching experience last fall.

Legalizing marijuana would save money, improve lives

For politicians, abandoning a costly, ineffective program is a lot like retreating in the face of battle. They would rather suffer a crushing and decisive defeat than regroup, change strategy and live to fight another day. This is especially true of the federal government's expensive and inefficient war on marijuana.

High in cost and low in sense, the death penalty needs to go

This just in - an eye for an eye won't only leave us all blind, it will leave us cash-strapped and judicially impotent as well. Since the reinstatement of the death penalty nearly three decades ago, 948 people have been tried, sentenced and executed, paying the ultimate price for their crimes.
