Opinions: The more you know

NBC has got it goin' on.

They've got the peacock: unequivocally the most "pimp-tastic" bird in the entire avian world. They've got the answers to the most important question ever asked: Where in the world is Matt Lauer? They've got the Olympics: the one thing nobody can who outright hate. (At the very least, it's physically impossible to hate curling. It's foreigners with brooms on ice). They've got "The Office" or at least they did until the writers strike crushed our soul and they've got about two-dozen varieties of both "Law and Order" and "Dateline" running on a nightly basis. Enough said.

CEO: Poor Stephanie Mahan. This freshman English major just wants to light a fire. And no, not like the one that burned down our beloved Memorial Union, and is still under investigation. Instead, she wants to light a fire in her near-freezing Ocotillo Hall dorm room.

Diary of our rock 'n' roll hero
Good tidings from the lush freeze of Olympia, Wash.! When I last reported, we were deep in the righteous squalor of a San Louis Obispo punk house. Now we're making soup in the state capital, and our evergreen friends here have yet to take down their Halloween decorations.

It's hip to be hairy
Only the most learned and revered men have sported beards: Abraham Lincoln, Aristotle, Leonardo Da Vinci and, of course, Johnny Depp. Though these icons have given beards a boost, facial hair has not always been seen in a positive light.

If it looks like a beard and smells like a beard, it's probably a beard
For some, it's about the look. For others, it's simply about laziness. And for a select few, it's all about looking as gross as humanly possible. One thing is certain, however: beards are back.
