Editorial: UCD should not sell out

The announcement of a possible US Bank branch in the Memorial Union was bad enough. The latest news is even worse. UC Davis could allow US Bank to put its logo on the back of all UC Davis identification cards as part of the ongoing negotiations to allow a US Bank branch in the MU.

That’s what she said

Some light needs to be shed on a particular minority of women. These women come in various shapes and sizes, skin colors, religious beliefs, sexual orientations and everything else that makes people vary. Actually, they really have nothing in common, besides one crucial aspect of their personalities that distinguishes each from the rest of society.

And then I found 5 dollars

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel old? Pretty soon I'm going to start dying my hair, subtracting five years from my age and power walking at the mall on Sunday mornings. Every day I get closer and closer to being a grown-up, and I don't like it.

The Sterling Compass

We live in an era of one-night stands and transitory relationships. Many of you have probably never had a meaningful relationship, while most of you likely have had a one-night stand or maintained a "friend with benefits" relationship. In the fashion of our generation, you embraced your physical impulses while fearing and avoiding emotional ones.

Otherwise, they’ll kill you

Now that my friends and I are high tailing it out of this ol' college town this year, I've been noticing that we're trying to cling onto our old antics. Our collective fear of growing up and entering that blasted "real world" is festering inside us at such an alarming rate; we're desperately trying to stay young. And I'm not even talking about staying in college mode. Sadly, we've been trying to act like high schoolers again.

Steal This Column

Over the year and a half I've been writing this column, I've encountered a variety of different responses. Some students have been motivated by my efforts, others have been appalled by them, but so far nothing has caught me more off guard than a displeased TGIF supporter who insisted that I smell her in the middle of a crowded Coffee House breezeway.

Editorial: TGIF

In addition to selecting six new ASUCD senators this week, students will also be asked to weigh in on a controversial new fee increase to establish a "Green Initiative Fund."

If passed, the measure will require students to pay an extra $4 per quarter in fees to ASUCD in order to fund a program that would give students the money to initiate sustainability projects on campus.

Steer this ship of fools

Congressmen are inarticulate, caustic and obtuse. It's their job, you understand. At least, the job we give them. The voter's interpretation of what to expect of federal legislators has been set adrift from their own interests. We'll gladly elect killers and thieves so long as they pay lip service to a few key sentiments to soothe our skepticism.

Call me cupid

Well guys, tomorrow's Valentine's Day. And if you're anything like most men on February 13th, you're hopelessly without a plan and about ready to fake food poisoning.

Hayduking for hippies

Late last week, while Senate Democrats were busy letting Republicans castrate an already neutered stimulus plan, I got pretty agitated. Much of our generation's future, and the future of generations down the line, depends on this administration's response to the recession

Variations on a Theme

There were a couple of notable recent turns of events that I could have touched on this week (i.e. high-profile scandals involving one of the following: Bruce Springsteen, Chris Brown, Christian Bale or Michael Phelps), but since it's a time-sensitive topic, I thought I'd devote my space to - surprise, surprise - Valentine's Day!

A happy, meaningless life

he religious, deists, agnostics and atheists all have trouble coming to terms with the meaninglessness of life. No matter where you stand on the spectrum, there is a troubling stigma associated with those who admit to having a meaningless life.

How the economy died

Wall Street's predicament is a lesson in overstretching limits. This is an institution that prides itself in creating wealth, moving and shaking markets, empowering people. At its very best traditions, Wall Street is a worldview - a belief that at its height, the possibilities of the human imagination are limitless.

Hey Hey Baby Baby

Singles are always whining about how much they hate Valentine's Day, but think about how bad those with the old ball and chain have it. Retailers surely get a throbbing hard-on for the 14th of Feb.; I mean, seriously, look at all the crap there is to be bought.

Money can buy a lot of nookie, but it just can't buy love.
