Devil Dish
Normally, San Diego is pretty sweet.

I like the ocean and everything associated with it.

Opinions: Sparky replaced by "Can you hear me now?" guy

WALLACE: Five weeks ago I found myself out, shoes off, on Hayden Lawn. Ducking the sun, I sat squinting from a slice of slant-fading shade.

I had just come out of class in West Hall and sat looking back at it. I couldn't help but relish the quaint academic quality of the bricks and pillars and wind-wisped palm trees lining the entrance. It was quite a moment. It felt like the "ASU" they show in brochures. I wasn't crowded or tired or busy or stressed.

Opinions: Just Shoot Me

SPIVACK: On Sept. 25, 2007, a new drug hit the mainstream market worldwide and it's bound to have disastrous effects. It is a drug that causes serious addiction and is actually sponsored by a major American company as well as various other corporations globally.

It's Microsoft's Halo 3, an addicting addition to the craze that has swept the nation as everywhere nerds and the obsessed turn to their crafty Microsoft Xbox 360's with their $60 controllers as they play on their high definition televisions (which they bought thinking about Halo) all while wearing their stupid, idiotic headsets, giving the common nerd the unfathomable and irrational ability to talk shit while playing a video game.

Opinions: Letters to the Editor

Opinions: New law: don't be an idiot!

Local Limelight: Talking about honky-tonk

The name Plowed Under comes from a poem and picture by Charles Russell, a famous cowboy artist. It was his style and the look of the early West, in general, that inspired the members of the laid back honky-tonk band Plowed Under.

Feature: The Six-Year Plan
College used to be the best four years of your life. For many, it's now the best six.

Out: Pretty awesome blossom
Cherry Blossom Noodle Café can't seem to figure out what it's all about. At first glance, it appears to be a Japanese noodle shop, with bamboo screens, chopsticks and wooden tables. But a closer look at the menu shows that the term "noodle" encompasses Italian pasta dishes, and the banana bread in the assorted breadbasket implies a touch of bakery.

The T&A Q&A: College-age of enlightenment
After starting just one year ago, the Network of Enlightened Women has wasted no time making its voice heard. As a conservative women's group at ASU, the club has contributed to the ever-evolving discourse about women's sexual issues on campus. This week, SPM talks to the club's president, English linguistics junior Catherine Smith, about hot topics like pornography, abortion and "The Vagina Monologues."
