Sometimes, when people discover this, they are incredulous. "You mean you really ... don't ... watch ... TV? Well, the other day I read an article that gave me fresh ammunition to use while arguing. [Read article]

Editorial: Bombs away

This week's winners ... and losers

A bomb - Excessive fire alarm outbursts at AZ-So. What's going on over there? A few pranks now and then are only natural, but the innocent residents of Arizona-Sonora hall must be pulling their eyes out by now. Whoever the culprits are - assuming dust isn't always to blame - need to remember they're in college. Alarm-pulling ranks right up there with cow-tipping. [Read article]
