Dick Cheney Can Predict the Future

Dick Cheney scares the hell out of me. I mean that in the most politically correct, non-partisan way I could possibly say it. As vice president, he is arguably the second-most powerful man in the world, and yet as a politician, he is alarmingly disconnected with his people, content with being the poster boy for the power-hungry, out-of-touch conservatism which has plagued this country for eight years.

Cat’s Pajamas Wake Up Slavin Lawn

It’s that time of the year again, when academics start taking a back seat to the irresistible temptation presented by nice, warm weather. There have been a few nice days to start the celebrating, but spring was officially ushered in on Saturday with the free, fun festival that is Stuartstock.

Brawl Packs a Punch

Like I always say, and many people agree, it’s hard to beat an original. With this third installment of the Smash series, my theory sticks. The original Nintendo 64 Super Smash is ranked in the top 10 best party games, and frankly, I don’t think that this new release will reach that kind of status.

Buddy Cianci Was the Man of the Hour

On Wednesday, April 16, in ’64 Hall at Providence College, Buddy Cianci was the man of the hour. But nobody knew what time it was. I think that sums it up pretty well. He certainly was the center of attention; people were interested in who he was and what he had to say, although many came and left with mixed feelings about Buddy the person.

Tangents and Tirades

Pope reminds us of the foundation of our nation. Last week, Pope Benedict XVI began his six day tour of the United States with a welcome ceremony at the White House. His visit marked his first to the U.S. as Pope and the first papal visit to the White House in 29 years.

Pointless Policies Cause Headaches

“We apologize for the inconvenience.” Every time I see this phrase, I groan, because I know what it means. It means that someone in the great infrastructure that is some sort of administration is choosing to enforce some sort of unnecessary rule or annoying policy for the sole purpose of exercising power.

Higher Prices Means Bigger Debts

It is springtime again, which means that many high school students are choosing where they are going to attend college. A lot of factors play into the decision: the school’s reputation, size, majors offered, location, and many other things. One element that some consider, and some luckily do not have to factor in, is the price of tuition and room and board.

Don’t Risk Your Skin: Fake Tans and UVA Rays

I love spring at Providence College. I love the sputtering sound of the lawn mower as it moves across the front lawn of Albertus Magnus Hall, allowing me to inhale the sweet aroma of freshly cut grass. I love having Development of Western Civilization seminar outside on the lawn discussing the Renaissance and basking in the sun with the infamously spastic squirrels.

The End of the World?

I was going to write about the Pope and his saying Mass at Yankee Stadium, but was told it would be too offensive and that I would probably lose all of the three friends I have. So I decided that I am going to write about the end-of-the-world prophecy that is published in 2008-God’s Final Witness, written by the self-proclaimed end-time prophet Ronald Weinland.
