College the place to stop straddling fence, pick a side
Believe it or not, ASU isn't just a place to come to when you need a good deal on sandals or sunglasses. Once in college, I, like many others, began to form opinions and views that some might call dangerous.

Putting protesters in jail can't silence the voice of the people
A diverse group of nearly 3,000 people showed up to an anti-war protest in Phoenix. I found solace in the thousands and thousands who, like me, could have been arrested Saturday for standing up for their beliefs.

Censoring research is scientific method of madness
Scientific editors and publishers announced at an annual meeting that they will begin excising the nitty-gritty details of published science papers to prevent "sensitive information" from falling into bio-terrorist's hands.

Editorial: Childish tactics, T-shirts won't save tuition
The Associated Students of ASU and the Arizona Students Association have decided to approach the possibility of a $15 million budget cut like a seventh-grade student council; they are giving away T-shirts.

Viewers shocked at 'Joe Millionaire' finale
There is a good chance that the majority of the people reading this article watched the series finale of FOX's reality show "Joe Millionaire" last night. There is also a good chance that, like me, most of the viewers are shocked.

Mall Rants: Same-sex marriages
ASU students rant about their feelings about same-sex marriages.

ASU professor applies theories to life, entertains students
Stephen Happel would never waste his time standing in a long line to buy tickets to a baseball game. That, he would insist, is a waste of opportunity costs, especially when there are scalpers just waiting to sell their extra tickets.

Regatta attracts more than 400 rowers to Tempe Town Lake
That sound of rowing was rampant this weekend at Tempe Town Lake, where more than 400 rowers from Arizona, San Diego, Dallas and other areas competed in Desert Springs - a rowing regatta hosted by the Rio Salado Rowing Club and the City of Tempe.

Devil Dish: Watching Tiger win is going to get old soon
Tiger Woods needs to stop toying with his fellow golfers on the PGA tour. In his first tournament back from knee surgery, Woods won the Buick Invitational, showing up ASU's beloved Phil Mickelson in the process.

Softball: Baseman Wright set to shatter ASU homer record
To say ASU junior third baseman Phelan Wright has been on a tear as of late would be an understatement. Just three weeks into the 2003 softball campaign, Wright has belted seven homeruns in just 14 games.

Larkin, wrestling destined
Tucson-native senior Eric Larkin, ranked No. 1 in every major college poll in America at 149 pounds, is set to earn his fourth All-American honor, fourth Pac-10 championship and his first national championship.

Opinion: Dodd deserves no disrespect from students
No ASU basketball player gets more undeserved guff from fans than men's point guard Kyle Dodd. He won't be playing in the NBA next season, but he is the most fundamentally sound player on the bench.

Hoops: Ike Diogu named Pac-10 player of the week
ASU freshman forward Ike Diogu is the third freshman to win the award in the past six years after dominating performances in ASU's wins over USC and UCLA last week. The phenom put up 26 points in each game.

Baseball: ASU dominates Gonzaga
Sparked by a seven-run third inning, the No. 4 ASU baseball team continued its winning ways Monday night with a convincing 17-5 victory over Gonzaga. Junior second baseman Steve Garrabrants drove home a career-high six runs including a grand slam homerun to break a tie in the third inning. Sophomore catcher Tuffy Gosewisch also added three RBIs on a 2-for-4 night.

UA Ticket Contest
Enter to win tickets to the sold out ASU/UA basketball game.

Suspect dies in police chase
The man who Phoenix police suspect shot and killed his estranged wife's boyfriend died late Sunday night.

Chris Schmitz, 40, reportedly ran a red light and lost control of his car, hitting his head as he crashed into trees.

Police yet to find a witness of Mill Ave beating death
Despite the heavy weekend crowds on Mill Avenue, police have yet to find a witness of the beating death of a young Tempe man found unconscious outside Have a Nice Day Café just before closing.

ASASU wants to see the money
"Show me the money ... and don't take it back!" is the message the Associated Students of ASU and the Arizona Students Association are sending to state legislators and University administrators.

ASASU members plan to distribute 200 green T-shirts featuring the "Jerry Maguire" catch phrase and the Monopoly icon, Rich Uncle Moneybags, to students who attend the tuition town hall meeting.

Federal funding to help light rail
With $46 million down and about $850 million more to go, the tri-city light rail dream is slowly becoming a reality. The Central Phoenix/East Valley Light Rail Transit Project received $12 million in federal funding.

300th and 301st episodes of 'Simpsons' don't disappoint
"The Simpsons" aired its 300th and 301st episodes Sunday night. "Barting Over" and "I'm Spelling As Fast As I Can" lived up to "Simpsons" reputation with priceless humor.

RTV Roundup: America gets pissed as shows drag on
Reality TV fans wasted their time last week when "Joe Millionaire" and "The Bachelorette" didn't end, but put off their two-hour finales for another week so their networks could make as much money as possible.

Laughable lovers
Calling all rejects! In case you haven't noticed, Valentine's Day is Friday. But do not fret, this may be the year when you break the cycle of lonely Valentine's Days past, spent home alone crying aloud to the Lifetime Channel.

Innocence lost, honesty found
It was just a little more than 365 days ago. This month, last year. The air was brisk, as it is now once the sun fades from our sight. I was nervous and vulnerable. I had no idea what to expect as I approached the steps of the unassuming house in central Phoenix.

Playing God
We live each day with the presumption that nothing can hurt us because we are inherently good. But according to "J.B.," a 1959 Pulitzer Prize-winning play that will be coming to ASU next week, we are all fools.

In the name of 'Love'
The mile-high town of 50 views and 450 people is used to travelers passing through. After living through four fires and a depression, the people of Jerome, Ariz. don't expect many visitors, or much from them when they do come.

Texans tell all
Despite their precarious reputations, Texans can sure tell good stories. Kevin Russell, the guitarist/ mandolin player/singer for the Austin-based rock group, The Gourds, is no exception.

Big steps on the big screen
Amy Ettinger, the director and founder of the Outfar! Phoenix International Lesbian and Gay Festival, has been offering an alternative to the Valentine's Day movie doldrums for the past seven years. Each year, the festival showcases several movies from around the world that feature characters, themes and issues from the gay and lesbian community.

Not so Daring
Daredevil, the new movie based on the Marvel Comics superhero, is just about as good as most of the other recent movies based on comic-book heroes. Which is to say that it is derivative, unoriginal, and mostly unengaging on the human-interest level.

Bound and Determined
As Kim Moody begins to explain the House's 20-year history of the "Exotic Art Show," he starts to laugh and gestures to the object of his amusement. "Um, the dildo in the window," he says, referring to a piece displayed nearby. It is a metal-constructed banana covering a vibrator, placed high on a pillow so that it stands erect and is noticeable from the outside. "I haven't seen the show up yet," he says chuckling.

On the road to independence
If you want something done right, do it yourself. If you want to make an album the way you want, start your own record label. Which is exactly what Big Head Todd and the Monsters did when they were all at the ripe young age of 25. Fourteen years later, three Colorado natives - Todd Park Mohr [guitar], Brian Nevin [drums and vocals] and Rob Squires [bass and vocals] - who make up the rock band BHTM, have got the record business down pat, but it wasn't always the case.

T 'n 'Anus'
Lloyd Garner is a realist and somewhat of a masochist. The ASU broadcast senior, and graduate of Scottsdale Community College's two-year film program, didn't set out to make Anus Magillicutty - an $800 "skin-flick, action-comedy" - a cinematic masterpiece.
