  • Freedom of speech should never be limited

    Freedom of speech is one of the principles the United States of America was built upon. It is a right that everyone who is born here or steps foot on this land is given. However, many argue that freedom of speech can go too far. My only question: How far is too far?

  • 'Hardcore Pawn': Detroit fact or fiction?

    'Hardcore Pawn': Detroit fact or fiction?

    Is there ever such a thing as bad publicity? That old adage would have you believe the answer is no, and typically, I would agree — except, that is, in the case of a certain highly rated reality TV program by the name of “Hardcore Pawn.”

    Athletes speak on effects of having sex before competition

    Stereotypically, most college athletes are no strangers to sex, as being the most popular people on campus does have its perks.

    It’s just before Christmas, and housewife Nora Helmer (played by Ashley Shamoon) spends her time making unnecessary purchases using the money her husband Torvald has yet to earn. Torvald (played by Robbie Dwight) has just gotten a job as a bank manager, and Nora thinks that all the troubles are finally behind them.

    Gigi's Cabaret: taking things from drab to drag

    It’s Saturday night and the director of Gigi’s Cabaret, Nickki Stevens, is entertaining a sold-out crowd. Her witticisms make the audience laugh and applaud, and while some may think this is just another comedy show, they’re in for a surprise.
