     Dudes, you know I hate to say I told you so, but I knew we were in for a rough ride after Hendrix bought the farm years ago. It’s as if the protective shroud of purple haze has lifted and gave the man room to crash the party.    Seriously, what a buzzkill.    Numero uno of what’s wrong ...

Researchers tell tall tales about short people

   Let’s face it, being short bites. If you happen to be short, you know. If you happen to be tall, you probably laugh at us for breaking things at WalMart trying to climb up to the top shelf. You sit in front of us at the movies, obliviously blocking our overpriced view with your oversized head. You get served ...

You’re not in high school, anymore

 If you’re trendy, then you probably had a moment during the holiday break when you either revealed the color of your underwear or rigged said garment with an explosive.   With underwear making recent headlines, I found it appropriate to point out how silly it is for the student body to soil themselves in fear after only one week of ...

Recession means new projects at VSU

VSU, once a campus that many considered at the least nice, now reminds me of some less attractive campuses.  Have you seen Fort Valley? One word: Eww. With the exception of my freshman year, most of my time on campus has been a constant annoyance.  It was my year in Converse that brought me the most annoyance with all the ...

People Poll: How would you evaluate your students this semester?

Anne Bowen Spanish Professor “I would give the student body a B based on [that] overall the students here are great kids, but they have room for improvement.” John Dunn History Professor “I would say better than passing, because students are more into history.

This is a big thank you for nothing

I imagine that some of you may have been surprised to find that Tiger Woods was not the only one getting busted up over the break.
