Opinions: Women: Put down People and pick up Business Week

MASCHOFF: As a student worker on campus, a good portion of my day is spent making copies, running errands and playing on the Internet. This is a guaranteed side effect to hours of sitting at my small desk with nothing to do.

Therefore, this free time allows me to browse everything that the Internet has to offer, including entertainment news. Now, I am pretty sure that the majority of the planet is unbelievably sick of hearing about the loves, losses and all-around good times of Hollywood's young starlets or star wannabes, which, for the sake of our gag reflex, will remain unnamed, but you know who they are. So don't worry, this article is not about them.

Opinions: On our minds

Bullying, family troubles, violent media, aggression. These are the usual suspects, always tabbed as potential causes for a school shooting. But if those are truly to blame, why don't even more people snap? After all, we all deal with those things.

That's why those reasons behind most shootings are far surpassed by the true heart of the issue, mental illness.

Look at the recent Northern Illinois and Virginia Tech tragedies, plus half a dozen school attacks from the '90s all shooters had histories of mental illnesses.

Review: So fresh and so easy


Not everything that boasts of being easy is fresh, like those sandwiches from a drive-thru window. And not everything that is fresh can be easy, like picking veggies out of a backyard garden.

'Diary of the Dead' will leave you dying for more

Everyone knows that the best way to kill a zombie is to shoot it in the brain. Luckily, George Romero's new zombie flick "Diary of the Dead" is around to remind any would-be victims that scythes or stray vials of acid will do the trick as well.

Spreading the literary love
Think of all the textbooks you purchased this semester you probably spent anywhere from $300 to $500 for a stack of books that will hardly be opened. This tradition has haunted college students in this country for eons.

The funnies is back
The comics section of the newspaper was always the most enjoyable to read while growing up. At the time, the jokes offered by a lasagna-eating cat, overworked office employees and a small boy named Ziggy were fresh. Today, many of these comics are still in the paper but are repeating the same jokes from 15 years ago.

Music to my...what?
Since the advent of iPods and the daily deluge of music pouring from music blogs, the general population has become a little more than accustomed to getting their music fix.
