The odds are stacked in favor of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., to win the 2008 U.S. presidential election - or at least that's what one prediction market says.

Opinions: The people have spoken, and now it's my turn

NEFF: Last week, I asked the readers of the State Press to write about how well they thought the editorial board and I were doing, and/or what they wanted to hear about. My desperate plea for letters evinced a whopping total of six e-mails.

Anyway, the few e-mails I got were interesting enough. First off, Steven Cheshko writes:

"Freshness is the key to keeping things interesting. Instead of worrying about Washington and the Middle East, maybe put some emphasis on who we are here. You could write about identity, community, or the proliferation of litter all over campus. Or you could write about antidisestablishmentarianism. I don't know if it makes for a good article, but it's fun to say."

Opinions: How to avoid mid-semester burnout without IHOP's calories

WADE: After a recent conversation with some friends at the Vine, it became apparent that something I had been feeling for awhile was more common than I had thought.

It's that feeling you have when you just don't care as much as you usually do about how classes go or what grades you'll end up getting.

It's that feeling you have when you know you should be studying for that test, but instead find yourself heading to IHOP at midnight (and who here hasn't done that?) or watching those addictive countdowns on VH1.

Opinions: Put $5 on it
One frequent criticism of the media is that we portray important elections as too much of a competition, making it hard for a real dialogue to be heard, and measuring everything in terms of how it will affect a politician's popularity.

Don't I Know You?: Q & A with the SRC
Most students only venture to the Student Recreation Center after feeling guilty about a fast food binge, but have you ever wondered what the SRC really thinks about?

Sticks and stones can break your bones or make great art
Five towering balls constructed of interwoven saplings rise beside the saguaros of the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden. The ends of red, grey and chestnut brown willow and creosol saplings, some with leaves still attached, poke out at odd angles. About nine feet wide and just as high, these breezy havens have windows, doors and sunroofs.

The handwriting you're dealt
While most people applying for a job focus on writing the perfect cover letter, their future employer may take one look at how they dot their i's and reconsider their application.
