There is a Horse Under the Cornerstone

A “new” old story that’s purportedly true (aren’t they all?).



The MSU Bear needs pupils

Mar 11th, 2009 | By | Category: Blogs, Commentary, Opinions

He doesn’t have pupils for his eyes. Instead of being a normal bear with a slightly mean look on his face, he instead looks like a zombie bear, with his eyes apparently rolled up into his head.

Always spay and neuter your pet

Mar 10th, 2009 | By | Category: Blogs, Opinions

Jessica Lynn Green Contributor Like any other pet, an owner who does not plan to be a licensed breeder should spay or neuter their cat. The practice is known as “altering.” This isn’t an unethical practice, but simply good judgment and responsible behavior. I write this article because I am a concerned owner of two […]



Why comics run circles around the media

Jason McGill Assistant Editor Will Bunch at the Huffington Post has written a piece praising Jon Stewart for his incisive skewering of the talking heads at CNBC for their myopic, fascile reporting and fawning interviews while the economy was starting to tank.  It’s easy to feel good about the muckracking at the Daily Show, especially […]

Jason McGill Assistant Editor As this is my first blog here, I will quickly say hello and thanks for reading. On other blogs I’ve written, I’ve started by apologizing for mistakes I’m bound to make, overgeneralizing important issues, becoming melodramatic, resigning myself to coming eschaton and in the same post cheering with wild-eyed faith in […]



Tired of crappy TP advertising

Zach Becker Editor-in-Chief Cut the crap. They use bears, puppies, royalty, clouds and even babies, but is all this squatting around the subject really necessary? And do these cute little images really help sell toilet paper? People crap. They use toilet paper to wipe it off their butts. I don’t think it’s a big revelation. […]

Kimberly McGarry Contributor Recently, one of Obama’s appointees, Carol Brown, was discovered to be a member of the Socialist International’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society. Whilst it sent right-wing bloggers to their keyboards to send out the call of “socialism” and “world government” with gleeful grins on their faces, it set me to thinking. […]
