Nowhere to go
A steady stream of cars zooms past the intersection of University and Priest, blasting exhaust onto a scrawny man who leans against the stoplight pole and holds a cardboard sign: "Disabled homeless vet needs help." The scorching Arizona sun beats down on Bob Frounfelkner's leathered skin.

Opinions: Christmas cheer is good all year

THORSON: The radio station 99.9 KEZ started playing their Christmas music at least 10 days ago. The IHOP across the street from campus painted its windows with scenes of a wintry wonderland Friday morning. Eggnog has graced the shelves of grocery stores for weeks now.

And even though I probably stand alone, I can't deny it: I'm a Christmas addict. And I'm eager to welcome the holidays this year.

Most of my friends found out that Christmas music was playing on the radio at the beginning of November and made faces of annoyance. They complained that it's too early, that it's ridiculous to get in the holiday spirit before we celebrate Thanksgiving.

Opinions: Tibet dilemma not simple enough for bumper stickers

WADE: It is easy to see how putting a political candidate's bumper sticker on your car might make a difference by influencing votes, but the Free Tibet stickers baffle me.

The ubiquitous nature of those proudly displayed bumper stickers supposedly demonstrates a desire for actual change to be undertaken in the East Asian region. This begs the question: How exactly will this be accomplished?

Like most revolutions, the use of military force could be employed. But in this case, the U.S. military would have to engage in some sort of military intervention against China. This would mean a war that would make Iraq look minor.

Top 5: Things to do while nursing a cold
1. Get a bellboy (or girl). Turn your roommate or significant other into your personal sick slave, and try ringing a bell whenever you need.

Brite's Bites: Chatting about Chaat
I've always thought of myself as being somewhat cultured. Well, more so than the average Arizonan, anyway.
