There was a poster, quite some time ago, that circulated around the Internet in support of marriage equality that depicted exactly how this issue should be treated. In a nutshell, it asserted that gay marriage shouldn’t be referred to as “gay” marriage — it’s just marriage. Because, you know, you park your car. You don’t gay park it.
If you have something to say about bonfires on Corona Del Mar beach, it’s best if you say it now because soon, people might not have a single idea about what you’re talking about. The Newport Beach Parks, Beaches and Recreation Committee will be discussing possible options for the future of the fire rings that we all know and emote about this Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the council chambers.
By Jamie Rogers and Tets Namba Hello again, Vice Chancellor Parham, We hope you remember us; we are some of the students who set up a study-hall in front of the administration building at the end of last quarter and the beginning of this one. We appreciated that you took the time out of […]

Fall of 2011 will be remembered as a dark time for the students of the University of California.

The Penn State scandal is a story about one man whose legacy has been tarnished because of his failure to report his knowledge of his defensive coordinator’s alleged rape of a 10-year-old child.

Now his career is tainted and the reputation of the Penn State Nittany Lions lies in question. This is the story right?
