Facing the Inevitable: Facebook

Sarah Hale

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. It promised a bevy of social benefits and an almost supernatural link to the extracurricular world. I resisted wi...

Experience Community

Molly Henle

September 28, 2005

On a Friday afternoon in late April, while my fellow classmates became permanent residents at the library and scrambled to pull together their last shred of sanity to prepare for the final few weeks of classes, I loaded on a stuffy, yellow school bus along with 30 other Saint Louis University students fo...

How to Write a Constitution

Stephen Webber

September 28, 2005

Less than a month from now, one of the most important elections in American history will occur-and you don't have a vote. On Oct. 15, Iraqi voters will go to the polls to decide the fate of the proposed Iraqi constitution. While America's one-track mind has been focused on Hurricane Katrina, Iraq ha...

A Farewell to Rhythm and Brews

Matthew Rysavy

September 28, 2005

I heard about it waiting for a cup of coffee, early this summer, after a long day of work. The line at Nadoz, the coffee shop on the first floor of the Coronado, was long, and so the girl ahead of me turned around to chat and pass the time. "Did you hear that Rhythm & Brews, down the street, is moving...

Defining and Defying Culture

The Catholic Church is an aged institution. Though 2,000 years old, it is always developing, adjusting to an ever-changing world-a world which, it seems, changes faster than the Church can keep up. The Vatican has set out to evaluate the Church's relationship with the modern world by instructing apostolic...

The Cherry Tree…

Dave Gallaher

September 21, 2005

As I sit and watch the surreal pictures following Hurricane Katrina, I am somewhat shocked and, to be quite honest, disgusted to witness the immediate finger-pointing, political rhetoric and general "Bush-bashing" by the undeniably liberal media: specifically CNN and the far left New York Times. Freedom of...

…And Bush

Marshall Johnson

September 21, 2005

Hurricanes happen. I'm not going to blame the guy for a hurricane. There is nothing he could have done to stop that. I'm not going to call him a racist, either. I don't think he's insensitive to any certain race of people.But the mere fact that President Bush did not even understand what Hurricane Ka...

Smoke, Out

Matthew Lehner

September 21, 2005

Every time I enter or exit my home, I gasp. The smokers outside of the Griesedieck complex have knighted themselves the sole proprietors of the porch step entrance to the dorm. Their habits are not only rude and unhealthy for the people entering and exiting the complex, but also in blatant violation of...

Another Fresh Perspective

Nick Otto

September 21, 2005

As early as last spring, I was stressing about the transition to college. I would lie in my bed, my mind awry with a flurry of thoughts concerning what I would do with my time and freedom. I thought about things like having girls in the classroom with me (since I am from a single-sex high school) an...

Remember when…?

September 21, 2005

Do you remember that kid who used to sit next to you in freshman English, the guy with the orange hair and freckles, who used to wear a Dave Matthews Band hat to class everyday? Or that girl who used to get really worked up and pound her fists on the table at Student Government Association meetings? Yo...
