Students feel repercussions of Prop. 300

More than 600 students lost their in-state status or financial aid for the school year due to the new Proposition 300 requirements.

Opinions: Bush administration falls short in Pakistan

PATE: We almost had Bin Laden. In 2001, special operators had tracked him for days using a radio they had pulled from an enemy corpse. The noose was almost closed; allied troops were close enough to hear Bin Laden on the radio, apologizing to his followers for having led them "into this trap." The CIA officer in charge, Gary Bernstein, radioed his superiors for reinforcements to move in and capture the Al Qaeda leader. The response came after a long wait; there would be no reinforcements. President Bush relied on the word of President Pervez Musharraf that Pakistani forces would cut off Bin Laden's escape.

Opinions: Chill out

Though the Valley of the Sun (the hot, hot sun) missed setting an all-time record for the most consecutive days recorded at more than 110 degrees, it is still ridiculously hot outside.

We here at The State Press haven't left our cool, dank basement in days (or so it seems). We don't dare creep out above ground until it is dark.

You surface-dwellers could take the same approach to the heat and stay indoors all day. But we know you're busy. You have places to go. Classes to ditch.

Opinions: Letters to the Editor
I'd like to see the State Press put a camera at the corner of the field near the Law Library and count the number of people that actually use the new sidewalk on the east side of that drive. The correct answer is "zero" — everyone walks in the drive.

The new border fence

Silvia is not a drug dealer. She's not a terrorist. She hasn't been involved in gangs or street fights or identity theft. Basically, Silvia is not a criminal … well, not really.

School shopping at ASU Surplus
Students cannot get enough of ASU.

Pulling out...a new option
Women still carry the greater load when it comes to having babies, but new scientific advances are giving men greater responsibility in not having them. Male birth control — long limited to abstinence, condoms or surgical vasectomies — is becoming more of a possibility for the millions of men hoping to avoid becoming baby daddies.
