Blog: Ironman-ing with 'The Wonder Steed'
Of all the things I never thought I'd do, voluntarily diving into Tempe Town Lake at 6:30 in the morning is most definitely in the top 10. But it's Ironman Arizona week, and all of Tempe is turned upside down.

Opinions: Fighting global warming ... one old man at a time

LIVINGOOD: So, Ted Turner is officially crazy.

The founder of CNN, back on April 1 (which I seriously hope is not a coincidence), said that global warming and overpopulation will lead to an 8-degree increase in average global temperatures, which will mean that crops won't grow, and ocean life and cattle will die. Consequently, Turner says that most people will die, and those of us that survive will have to resort to cannibalism. Now, I'm no expert on global warming, but predictions like this seem just a tad extreme.

Opinions: Welcoming the Pope

SHOPE: This is a huge week for America's 65 million Roman Catholics, myself included. Pope Benedict XVI will bring his message to the United States for the first time in his papacy in visits to New York City and Washington, D.C., after having visited the United States five times as then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.

Those of you reading this are most likely around the same age as I am and came of age under the papacy of John Paul II. For most of us Catholics at this university, he was the only Pope we had ever known until his death a few short years ago and until the elevation of Cardinal Ratzinger to pontiff. Perhaps that is why the trip is so important to us. It's an introduction into the soul of a man who many of us are still trying to understand.

Why I relay
I don't run track let's just make that clear from the beginning. I don't pass batons or jump hurdles for 100 meters. This is a relay, all right, but not the kind you might be thinking of. Instead, what we pass is hope: the hope that together, we can beat cancer.
