Opinions: Give on-campus solicitors the boot

DHANANI: They are everywhere lurking in the shadows, waiting to pounce, singling out the weakest in the pack and especially those on their own.

No doubt this was a political question referring to the presidential election, but two previous answers on the white board intrigued me. One was "What a silly question" and the other was "What is 'true change?'"

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