I recently saw a woman standing on the side of the street holding a sign reading, "The Jews didn't take Jesus' life." Okay-you're right.So maybe I should stand on a street corner holding a sign saying, "Pi equals 3.14159-" That would both educate and improve the lives of thousands and perhaps save th...

On Thursday, September 29th, I went to Salon Ktizo, the salon in the Busch Student Center. I was in need of a haircut before my parents came for the family weekend.

I recently gave in to pressure and joined a universally addictive cult. For six months, my ears heard whisperings of its excellence. One by one, close friends slipped under its influence.
