The Line

Do you play basketball? Many strangers have uttered that phrase over the years and I don’t know why. Well okay maybe it has to do with the fact that I am a six-foot female, but that shouldn’t give people free access to comment on my body however they want, does it? We all know that everyone has the freedom of speech, but whether people realize it or not, issuing statements about a stranger’s physical traits is just downright insensitive. No one in their right mind would go up to a random overweight person and say, “lose some weight.” But believe…

D’-lightful: Hornets rout Weber State

Back in the win column after two close losses, the Sac State football team showed that it is capable of taking over a game defensively, as they defeated the Weber State 35-7 on Saturday at Fred Anderson Field before 9,157 people. Charles Roberts did his thing, rushing for 154 yards and three touchdowns, but the fact that the defense allowed only one touchdown was important, after surrendering 76 points in the previous two games. “That

Madonna vs. Britney

“Out with the old and in with the new.” This is the natural attitude that most people have, partly because the media demonstrates it. It’s human nature to build things up and then someday tear it down. When I say that people end up destroying the things they once created, I am not talking about buildings; I’m talking about other people. Britney Spears versus Madonna was the main topic of an online discussion the other day. I could not believe my eyes! Here we have two very talented performers being compared and contrasted on not their professional merit but staying…

This week the Library Quad has been inundated with leaflets and hand-outs. Ranging from dance party invitations, little green Gideon Bibles and instructions for a pyramid scheme, most of these fliers are simply a nuisance to passersby. My personal favorite was the flier detailing a conspiracy by computer scientists to control our minds. The writer, “Truly Aware,” claims that people
