Opinions: Can I please see your ID?

PELTON: So my authoritarian editor sent out an email the other day chastising us columnists about how we need to stop writing all about personal stories. Too bad.

I am willing to risk my unpaid job because I think an issue that I deal with every day needs to be addressed.

You see, I live at the Gateway Apartments.

You know, the place that is on the news more than Barack Obama and sees more police visits than the streets of New York after another Yankee playoff exit.

Opinions: Thumbs up to learning a valuable lesson

CEO: Bizarre things tend to happen to my family. Sometimes its little things, like being stopped at a red light and suddenly water just starts pouring on my car (mine and no one else's), or sometimes it's things like walking into my class and there are fliers posted everywhere that say "Worried About Ray?" and give a phone number to call just in case you are (after calling it, I realized no one is really worried about me, but are just trying to get you to go to some Web site).

But then, there are those occasions when you know you are very much alone in an experience, like watching an Amish man wear a baseball cap and smoke a cigarette in San Diego. Or better yet, the occasion when a freak accident caused my father to unintentionally cut off one of his friend's thumbs.

From the editor: Little red corvette

There are many mysteries in life.

My vertical challenge
My entire life, I have been smaller than the average human being. As a child, my mother would always try and make me feel lucky to be vertically challenged by saying, "Good things come in small packages." She was obviously wrong, though, because Barbie's huge, beautiful dream house and sporty, drivable Jeep came in HUGE packages and those were the only "good things" on my list.

Review: Primer
Describing a movie as "indie" these days is usually more of a reflection on its quirkiness instead of its financing. It's easy to forget that indie flicks shouldn't just be about an ultra-cool soundtrack and characters dressed in thrift-store chic. They should aim to try new things.
