Opinions: Six sweet classes for fall semester

SLAGLE: We have to register for fall semester soon? Like next week? Isn't it still February?
You didn't know that I could read your mind, did you? If I were you, I'd start worrying now ... about the mind reading, not registration — I've got you covered for that one.

If you spend some time surfing the schedule of classes, you'll see there are some gems. You ask yourself things like "ASU actually offers this?" and "People take this class?" and though you don't exactly get answers, you can at least get a laugh at some of the class names.

Opinions: Don't have a cow, man

WOOD: Living in Arizona it's our God-given right to listen to country music, wear cowboy hats all the time ("Oh, they're from Arizona" people will say) and drive huge pickup trucks for bailing hay. Out here, cow culture is alive and well.

Or so I thought until my crazy New Yorker friend came to visit and our lunchtime conversation turned to disputing the righteousness of eating red meat. Apparently, many students at her alma mater, Skidmore College in upstate New York, take burger eating very seriously. While eating with others, it is polite to excuse yourself if ordering beef and assert that you are having a serious craving. Their social conscience dissuades them from eating beef on the basis that cows are bad for the environment.

Opinions: Boos and Bravos
See what the editorial board boo'd and bravo'd this week.

From the editor: If the shoe fits
I remember when I bought my first pair of Vans.

Becoming a killionaire
Four. It's the amount of consecutive battle rifle head-shots necessary to drop, or kill, any given player in Halo 3. Within any social clique, there is at least one person who knows that. But it is only every so often you meet someone that not only knows this, but lives and dies by it. I am that guy.

Saddle up
Up-and-coming local artist Saddles' well-worn acoustic sound and powerful lyrics may pack the punch of years of experience, but listeners may be surprised that only one man and a few months of inspiration are behind its timeless sound.
