2 Jailed in campus explosion


No injuries in blast near Honors College; suspects not UA students

Police said the men were in a car between the College of Music and the Honors College, 1017 N. Vine Ave., about 12:30 p.m. when an explosive device was thrown from the moving vehicle, said Sgt. Eugene Mejia, University of Arizona Police Department spokesman. [Read article]

When people say a film is independent, this is not always indicative of a particular style or genre, but merely a limited budget and release. But in the case of "Me and You and Everyone We Know," there is no other real way to describe it. It is a quintessential independent film, and it is unlike any other.

The story for "Me and You and Everyone We Know" is original and offbeat and does not follow the conventional rules of screenwriting that most writers follow. Writer/ director Miranda July stars as Christine Jesperson, a starving artist who drives old people around to earn a living. She is struggling both artistically and romantically and is desperately trying to save her own life. [Read article]
