TMZ shouldn't tee-up news

With all the controversy surrounding the Tiger Woods case, we are in a sense left to rely on one source: TMZ. Sure, it catches us up on the latest celebrity gossip, but should upstanding network, cable and print news sources rely on it as their main, if not only, source for Tiger stories and other celebrity news? That is what they seem to be doing. Fox News Network is actually citing TMZ and not... 

You can't handle the truth

You can't handle the truth
Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor The truth defined by Webster’s dictionary is the body of real things, events, and facts. Within society and the world individuals claim to have truth as their No. 1 value, the thing they live by and hold most dear to their arguments and decisions in everyday life. At any time there is a questioned raised or a finger pointed, the search for ‘truth’... 

Generations falling down

Generations falling down
Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor You are in the store about to purchase your groceries for the week, a mother stands in front of you, her child running in circles screaming out in awkward babble the lyrics to “Party in the U.S.A.” You walk outside and see an elderly lady struggling with her groceries as five strapping boys pass by her without a care. A father is walking with his... 

Give us a break

It seems like no big deal to add on a week for the semester in fall – and spring, which is what the administration has done effective this September. But it is a big deal to us. Students have lost two weeks in summer to potentially earn that much more toward tuition. And hard-working faculty have lost precious research, vacation and family time. OK we accept that for whatever reason, the University... 

Bringing the holidays to the poor

Bringing the holidays to the poor
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief I cannot believe how fast the holidays are approaching. It feels like we just rang in the New Year. With our busy schedules and hectic life, it seems like everything is passing us by so much and without any room to take it all in. As we get closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas, we must stop and think what is really important and meaningful to us, including appreciating... 

Let's all do our part to fight hunger

The United States received some pretty sobering news Monday: There are more hungry people in this country now then at any other time since the government has tracked the statistic. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s report indicates that nearly 50 million people had difficulty getting enough food to eat in the last year. More devastating still, the total number includes almost one in four children... 

Commentary: Xbox 360 mod ban taking a toll on gamers

Commentary: Xbox 360 mod ban taking a toll on gamers
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist The season of giving is upon us. Of course, that would imply that many video game-related gifts will be the highlight of most college students’ holiday. But not all gifts are full of jolly cheer this holiday season. Over the past month, Microsoft has been giving the gift unforgivable punishment by banning over 1 million Xbox live members from using the service.... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, After reading the Nov. 6 edition of the Campus Times, a few members of our student body became extremely concerned about a certain opinion piece entitled, “Diversity leading to destruction.” First of all, I would respectfully like to question the use of this title in a University that means to promote diversity among its student population. At first glance it would seem that the author...

Commentary: 'Modern Warfare 2' leads to missing student
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist Close those curtains, tell your family you are dead, and let your girlfriend know that it is over, it is that time of the year again. Yes, my friends “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2″ has finally been released, and I am happy to say that it delivers on its social life reducing promise of being one of the most addictive games of the year. For about... 

Legalize 'natural' resources

Legalize 'natural' resources
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist When I was in fifth grade, my elementary school spent a good two weeks participating in the D.A.R.E. program. From what I can remember, this program consisted of a cop or something coming into our classroom and conducting exercises that could help us fight against drugs and stay clean. Of course this completely makes sense, because being the impressionable...
