Opinions: Ron Paul: an apology

Last week, I wrote an article about Ron Paul saying that he and his supporters represent a far-right movement that shows a bewildering disdain for history and has doubtful legitimacy when talking about notions of democracy. I said that the appearance of such a movement deserved a reaction. Naturally, I meant a political, social reaction. However, (according to some of the e-mails I received) I should perhaps make it clear that Paul's supporters should anticipate no threat from my 145 pounds.

This summer I will be undertaking the daunting, yet exciting, task of cycling over 4,000 miles from San Francisco, Calif. to Washington, D.C. on the Journey of Hope on behalf of people living with disabilities.

We hope to abate social stigmas attached to those disabilities.

The 1337 1if3
In high school, nerds were banished to the dark land of A&V Club, with "Magic: The Gathering" cards spilling out of their pockets, rarely seen or heard from. But things have changed. Techy and trekkie love has now met its soul mate in the form of hip-hop, and its love child is named nerdcore.
