Opinions: If you're going to play hooky, you don't need a good reason

HULL: According to Woody Allen, 80 percent of success is just showing up. While the film icon probably intended this pearl of wisdom to reflect his views on things like medical school interviews, I think we can also liken it to classroom attendance here at ASU.

And given the fact that a lot of us never make it to class in the first place, it's easy to understand why we do our best to finagle as many extra credit assignments as possible to make up for the remaining 20 percent.

Opinions: Sadly, there's a lot more out there to mourn about

RICKETSON: The events that took place Monday at Virginia Tech were tragic.

Such a gratuitous loss of life is always shocking and painful to witness.

And yet, while the nation mourns the loss of the 32 killed, I question why it is these lives we choose to honor.

Certainly, yes, they deserve remembrance. They deserve candlelight vigils. They deserve our heartfelt sorrow and sympathy.
