Competition edges out Sodexho

Bettina Hansen / THE STATE PRESS
SODEXHO OUT: Chef Felipe Pea prepares food for students Sunday at Pitchforks in the Memorial Union. Sodexho, the foodservice company that serves ASU has lost their contract.

Despite 50 years of experience, ASU's food-service vendor will likely be ousted in July.

Opinions: Hate crime hurts everyone

VAIDYANATHAN: The recent case of Andrew Anthos, a 72-year-old man who was beaten to death outside of his apartment in Detroit by homophobes, is a sad reminder of how far society has to go on the road toward acceptance.

Almost a decade after the Matthew Shepard trial, and the resulting attempts at hate-crime legislation, we are still grappling with how to make people understand that an impersonal hatred based on sexual orientation is wrong.

Opinions: Maoism still alive and well in China

PATE: On a trip to Tiananmen Square last week, the tour guide confided to me:

"Actually, Chinese today don't really like Mao. We prefer Deng."

She was referring to Deng Xiaoping, the architect of China's economic opening in 1978. China owes much of its current prosperity, such as it is, to Deng; furthermore, Deng has the advantage over Mao of, well, not being responsible for the deaths of millions during the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution.

Opinions: Goodbye to Sodexho
