The Supreme Court announced on Feb. 21 that it would hear an appeal from a white student who claims she was denied admission to the University of Texas based on racial discrimination. The Supreme Court first approved affirmative action in 1978, giving colleges and universities limited racial preference to achieve a more racially diverse campus.

Please silence your cell phones

Please silence your cell phones
Editorial cartoon by Jason D. Cox There is nothing more annoying than being in a theater with a person who lights up the darkness with the blue glow of their smart phone.

News is more than celebrity
Editorial Cartoon by Jason D. Cox At the University of La Verne, especially in the departments that are immersed into current events, many professors open each class session with the question, “Did you hear anything interesting happen in the news?” We are used to the silent response from our classmates as we look around the classroom, avoiding eye contact with the professor. Either that, or the...

It’s not easy to glean the “inner essence” of an endeavor like this one, but the piece nails it. Devorah Lieberman and Matt Witt each emailed me this morning to the effect that they were...

I can understand that there are entire groups devoted to protecting the family environment. I salute these groups when they find a cause they can get behind that helps families come closer and stops their breaking apart. In the case of the organization One Million...
