Editorial: Punishment for crime too 'dressy' to cure criminals

Opinion: Theory that women identify with oppressors tests true
I had no idea what it meant. I don't know women who hate themselves. I certainly don't hate myself. So how is it that women are "taught self-hatred"? How do they "identify with their oppressors"? These are very complex questions, but I will go ahead and answer them by saying that these statements are true.

Opinion: Halloween: When back hair is fashionable
I love Halloween, because it reminds me of a simpler, more-innocent time — a time when I dressed up as a goblin and ran around the neighborhood shouting, "Trick or treat!"

Bandannas, boots popular for Fall fashion

Jerry Garcia's art makes way through Phoenix

He kisses his teenager's best friend. Dejá vous? Wondering if you've already seen this movie? No, it's not American Beauty, but Life as a House really wants to be.

CD Reviews

Cashing in on your plasma
For some college students, flipping up couch cushions and digging through old coat pockets hoping to recover loose change or even that missing five-dollar bill is a routine occurrence. Even more routine is finding lint and old gum wrappers instead.

There's money in the (sperm) bank
So you're ready to be a daddy. The only problem is, there is no woman this side of the Milky Way willing to let you plant your seed.

Donating eggs is all it's cracked up to be
I am going to have a baby whom I will never know. I will never see him or touch her. I will never know his name. I will never know if she'll have red hair like me, or hair like her father, who I'll never learn a thing about. I won't know anything about the father, or about the mother who carried her for nine months.

'SPM' answers your questions
Well, we at the magazine have wondered about it a lot. Who puts ads like that in the paper? And even more pressing, who answers them? Is it worth the money? Is it strange to know that a little you will be running around without your knowing it?
