Opinions: Cheating at the SATs and at work hurts us all

KEANE: New depths of cheating hurt everyone involved.

The SAT test: four long hours in a stuffy, sometimes sterile classroom, no. 2 pencil embedded between your thumb and index finger, calculator fuming from exhaustion; a grueling procedure to complete so early on a Saturday morning.

Students perform poorly in social situations because of all the time spent studying for the test; teachers spend weeks veering from their prepared lesson plans to help prepare for it, yet the only time that (hopefully) four-digit score will hold any real meaning in your life is in your college acceptance (or denial) letter.

Opinions: Sordid past is out of 'site,' out of mind

NEFF: Ever get the feeling you shouldn't have posted the Polaroid of you and your ex swilling cocaine and highballs while you eviscerated that hobo with your favorite Swiss Army sex toy? Well, now there's hope for you, with ReputationDefender.

Wired News reports that this new site erases all online evidence of your sordid past - photos, videos, blog posts, even news stories - for a humble monthly fee.

Just listen to them boast. "First, we SEARCH. Then, we DESTROY." Your virulent racism, your fondness for drag, your "sexygurl69" alter ego from eighth grade - you name it, they'll find it and command that all traces of it be erased.

Opinions: What's the hurry?
Just like our parents, it seems ASU and the Arizona Board of Regents can't wait for us to leave the proverbial nest.
