Likins to sign IMOA

The UA will partner with a university from Tucson's sister city in Kazakhstan through a memorandum of understanding, an agreement that will promote both cultural and academic exchanges.

April 5's front-page Arizona Daily Wildcat story featured a busty woman smiling and flashing large, scantily-covered breasts for Playboy magazine photographers, who were on campus seeking new "talent" at the UA. That tawdry cover story was ironically juxtaposed with the previous day's full coverage of the pope's death.

This clash demonstrates the detestable position in which Americans have placed the media. Let's face it: The media feed us stories and illustrations of junk on demand. Sadly, this just reflects our society's degenerating moral values and the popular view that anything goes. [Read article]

After 30 years, the cult classic "The Rocky Horror Show" is still going strong: transvestites, aliens, hunchback and all. For the first time in Tucson history, the Arizona Repertory Theatre presents this legendary, interactive piece of theater.

Director Richard Hanson's experience with this musical dates back to its original showing with Tim Curry, which he saw in Los Angeles at The Roxy Theater. He has wanted to do the production for years, but this year all the pieces seemed to come together. [Read article]
