Glee’ premiere has high points, fails to produce momentum

There must be some statute of limitations on how many times a television show can be renewed for another season with only the quality of its first to serve as justification for doing so. Unfortunately, “Glee” seems to be immune to that particular brand of logic. In fact, the show seems to be immune to […]


Senior Profile | Tabias Wilson

  For four years, Tabias Wilson has carved out spaces within the chatter of campus dialogue to make room for conversations about underrepresented identities – conversations that empower marginalized people across campus to develop a voice that demands attention.

  It’s safe to say that my primary motivation for going home over break was food. Ten days of food that I didn’t have to cook or buy or scoop out of a can? Yes, please. Speaking of food, I spent the latter half of said break watching my parents take days to prepare all […]

Over the past year, Ive developed something of an interest in contracts. To be clear, in no way should that statement be taken to mean that I want to become a lawyer. Sure, becoming one would probably mean job security and a stable career and a decent salary and a direction in life other than […]

Last week’s column ended with a linguistic treatise on how to deal with people who need to be slapped in the face. The first option was, obviously, to slap them in the face – certainly a more cathartic choice. Option two was to glare at the offender until the laser beams of hate shooting out […]

When you think Jews, you probably think Hebrew. I think of eating far too much food as a child and a marginally overbearing family, but you probably think Hebrew. It is, after all, the language of the Torah, the Jewish Bible. But the Hebrew spoken and written today is Modern Hebrew a revival and an […]

  A failure. An unmitigated, stupendous failure. When starting something at the last minute, those are definitely some words that could describe a potential end result. What else works? Barely viable. Merely adequate. Struggling for breath and purpose. So lacking in direction as to be utterly useless. Melodramatic. Maybe the last one is just me. […]
