As a student at UWRF that pays big bucks for the operations of the University Center, I think that students would benefit to know that while inside the UC, you are protected from solicitors. I was approached by a well-dressed man who with no introduction asked if I had signed the recall petition yet. After […]

Dear Editor, “Hands off my teachers” is a protest sign that I would gladly hold high… so long as it’s directed towards the unions. I’ve never bargained my own contract or fought to enforce good working conditions so it’s naïve of me to say, but I’d rather speak for myself – and so long as […]

It’s that time of year again when our controversial comrade invades the sanctity of our lives. Brother Jed’s “ministry” feeds off of queasy Christians, gays, women, and otherwise the entire human race…it’s not exactly news. As always, there are the noble men and women who will fight with valiance an futility to defend their beliefs […]
