Freshmen growing up quickly

But what about gay PDA? This is about as rare a sight on campus as President Peter Likins lowering tuition.

An instructor for one of my courses claimed that this lack of intra-gender canoodling is because of society's entrenched homophobia.

Ari Lerner, Anthony Fama and Matt Dhyr are starting a revolution. A revolution of funny, in the form of improvisational street comedy with their group, The Street-Prov Theatre Collective.

Monday evening I find myself in a not-too-well-lit alleyway south of campus. It's freezing (by Tucson standards). All 57 degrees out here are inducing bone-rattling vibrations. [Read article]

Venerable Stones play to sold out crowd in Glendale

Rolling Stones fans young and old flocked to the Glendale Arena Sunday night to catch a glimpse of the venerable rock 'n' roll band as they made a stop in the Phoenix area on their A Bigger Bang World Tour.

The concert was to promote the band's newest album, A Bigger Bang, and Glendale was the 40th stop on the tour, which started earlier this year in New York City. The band has crisscrossed the country, stopping in cities like Portland, Ore., Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston. Even Duke University was a stop on the tour. [Read article]
