'Bring them home': Grijalva supports U.S. withdrawal from Iraq


Whether the Bush administration manipulated facts given to the American public regarding the Iraq war was the topic of discussion last night when a state representative spoke about withdrawing from the region.

Rep. Raśl M. Grijalva, D-Ariz., said he thinks the American public continues to be compounded and disturbed by the indecisiveness of when President Bush will choose to withdraw troops from Iraq in a discussion titled "The Iraq War: Reality Not Politics." [Read article]

After almost a week off to ponder its troubles on offense, the No.15 Arizona men's basketball team travels to Texas to take on Houston tomorrow at 5 p.m. at Hofheinz Pavillion. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

You see the people milling around, waiting impatiently. Some are shuffling their feet, others are checking their wallets; all are nervous. "Man, if I don't get this, I don't know what I am going to do," mumbles one guy to his line neighbor. "My friend just got his and he said it's awesome, but it took forever," whispers another guy.

Although this is eerily reminiscent of the droves of Xbox 360 fans clamoring at the doors of Best Buy, it is far from.

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]
