Don't Eat: Watch

November 19, 2008

The skelator Ms. Angelina Jolie (Pitt?) gives possibly her best, and most skinny, performance in her new movie, The Changeling. I went to the movie expecting an intense drama, instead I got a less graphic version of The Chainsaw Massacre, just involving children. . . .

Most college freshmen find themselves struggling to adjust to their new atmosphere, while attempting to balance college academics with extracurricular activities.

African-Americans remain judged on skin color

November 19, 2008

I am a young woman in my senior year of college, who is proud to be African- American.

The man and the monster

Crichton's legends

November 19, 2008

Michael Crichton died last week, and the world lost another great writer. Over his long career he published over 20 books, one which will be released posthumously next year. Many of his books were brought to the big screen, including Jurassic Park, Sphere, and most recently The Andromeda Strain. Not only did his books become movies, but he helped make movies. . . .

Where's the sportsmanship in the NFL?

November 19, 2008

I was watching the Monday night football game between the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns, and I became slightly disturbed by something. It was in the beginning of the third quarter and the Browns’ underused running back Jerome Harrison took a handoff to the outside of the right tackle for nine yards, and when it appeared he was giving up and had half a foot out of bounds Buffalo linebacker Kawika Mitchell came into the picture and shoved Harrison, knocking him off balance and flying face first into the Bills’ bench. The play was rightfully flagged. Even if Harrison was not all the way out of bounds at the time of the hit, the player was clearly going to be out of bounds at the same spot under his own will. The hit is not necessarily what upset me the most, it’s what took place moments after the hit. . . .
