Opinions: A generation of differences

WADDING: Sometimes, I'm really glad that I was born into this generation.

Many of the values of older people scare me sometimes. I've noticed that the values and beliefs of the older generations tend to differ greatly than those of my generation, especially when it comes to tolerance.

At first, I thought it was just me, but then research reaffirmed my hypothesis; people's opinions really have changed over the past decade.

Take interracial marriage. Years ago, there were strict miscegenation laws.

Opinions: PlayStations are the wrong things to be thankful for

BEITMAN: On the eve of Thanksgiving, there's a lot I have to be thankful for in my personal life, and even more that we all need to be thankful for as Americans. However, some have distorted priorities this holiday season, demonstrated by the arrival of the PlayStation 3.

Now, I'm not fond of video games, so perhaps I make an unfair and biased pronouncement when I say the hysteria related to the new game system is unfounded and ridiculous. And there's nothing wrong with wanting something. However, when want for material items escalates to acts of violence, it goes too far.


Opinions: Let's be real
Black person? Check. Gay person? Check. Super-religious person? Check.
