Opinions: It's all been done before

SLAGLE: It's all but impossible to say anything original. In all likelihood, what you're saying or what I'm saying has been said before. Maybe someone has even written this column before I would bet on it.

Why do we even bother suggesting ideas or concepts when, in essence, we're just repeating history? Is it because we all hope that just once, our idea will be revolutionary? That we'll be given the highest respect because of our wisdom?
Think of art or fashion or even tactics on the battlefield it all comes and goes in cycles. We're all wearing clothes that were popular in a different time period, but have just "come back into style."

Opinions: I've been censored

CEO: My editor said I am allowed to write about anything I want within reason. I am not allowed to write about anything too over the line, or anything that will cause him headaches, as he is out of Aspirin. I am also not allowed to write about Britney Spears anymore, or Paris Hilton. And I should avoid things that are too personal (like a narrative about a shopping experience where I was baffled about how many choices of butter exist), or anything that will make the readers cringe or threaten to kill me.

Censorship, some people call it. I happen to agree, but as I write, I also happen to understand why there must be limitations in even the freest of presses.

Opinions: Boos and Bravos

The next frontier
We are all kind of pissed about going downtown next semester for our journalism degrees.
