An urgency to unite for ’10 graduates

An urgency to unite for ’10 graduates
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief For a group that will graduate at the beginning of a new decade, we the class of 2010 need to be known as the class of decision makers. Decisions by graduating men and women who demand answers before it is too late and reject tepid responses to distressing problems. Decisions by intellectuals who realize that personal sacrifice is sometimes necessary to help a neighbor... 

Time to break the handcuffs in Washington

Time to break the handcuffs in Washington
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief Hey Washington, now is your time. No longer do you have to be handcuffed by the players on Wall Street and their big bonuses, high-risk lending and investing or deceptive packages sold to millions of people. Signs point to the recession bottoming out and thus no longer do you have to cater to this private sector in order to keep the economy from completely crashing. All... 

Cuts in education cut down the future

Cuts in education cut down the future
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief If there ever was a time to question the priorities of the United States it is now. Massive unemployment, political partisanship and ongoing debate as to why the financial system collapsed have riddled Washington. However a leading indicator of what our country has evolved into can be found in the allocation of how we spend money. It is a hard sell for anybody to claim... 

Marchers' anger based on misconceptions

Marchers' anger based on misconceptions
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief Gun rights activists and the tea party movement took center stage last week to demonstrate how angry they are at the current administration. While both groups are, on the surface, unrelated to one another, they share something more than just being on the right of the political spectrum; they are outraged at the perceived role of government in our lives. First, gun rights... 

Bookstore voices say no to the Kindle

Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief Last weekend I found myself browsing the book shelves of Barnes & Noble, something I do fairly routinely. I wasn’t sure what kind of book I wanted to get, or if I was even going to purchase one that day because there are three other books on my shelf that I haven’t had a chance to dive into yet. And it wasn’t until I walked from section to section, grabbing,... 

First steps may not leave big prints

First steps may not leave big prints
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief Is it time to breathe yet? Is the health care debate finally over after months of political posturing? Answers seem to point in the direction of yes after President Obama signed the law a few weeks ago, but after the entire process, it still seems like an initial step to improve the American health care system; a first step in the direction of universal health care, something... 

Gossip consumption leaves real news in the dark

Gossip consumption leaves real news in the dark
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief The Web site minonline.com, a marketing publication that rates successes and failures throughout the media, released their results on which magazine covers were the best and worst sellers in 2009. A year that saw continuing economic disaster, the ongoing battle of fighting two wars and relentless debate on trying to reform a major sector of our social lives, health care,... 

Vacation Down Under

Vacation Down Under
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief I have never been able to travel anywhere exciting for spring break; it was always sports, school or lack of funds that kept me from exploring different lands. But this spring break led me on my most memorable one yet, to the land down under, Australia. While I have traveled to Europe before, this was my first time being in the southern hemisphere and I have a 14-hour... 

Wanted: One good candidate

Wanted: One good candidate
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief California must be in really bad shape. Every day I read something that highlights that point, but the Golden State’s deep problems might be indicative of the group of politicians running for governor this year. And if you don’t know the cast of characters then you haven’t been watching much TV, because Meg Whitman’s ads are on almost more than “Friends” reruns.... 

A whale of a problem

A whale of a problem
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief It was terribly sad to hear the news about Dawn Brancheau, the SeaWorld whale trainer who was drowned by one of the show’s orcas last week. It’s hard to imagine what her family is going through at this moment. But how surprising did the news come for people? The irregularity of such events might be astonishing given that these whales are habitually wild who don’t...
