Late three robs Lions of key conference win

February 16, 2005 Matt Conklin 0

Three minutes and thirty-six seconds was all it took to turn what looked like another New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) win into a heartbreaking loss.

After building a 58-50 lead over the first 37 minutes of the Saturday’s contest against Rutgers University-Newark, the College’s men’s basketball team needed just one more score and a defensive stop in the final seconds to secure a victory. […]

In 1964, Barry Goldwater ran for president in a red blaze of failure. One of the nation’s staunchest conservatives in the time when Kennedy and Johnson reigned, he garnered a measly 38.5 percent of the vote, winning only six states and 52 electoral votes.

Despite this, Goldwater was named chairman of the Grand Old Party (GOP) just a year later. […]

February 16, 2005 Zac Goldstein 0

During a conversation a few months back, a friend sent me a link to a Washington Times editorial in an effort to prove me wrong with “solid facts.”

I was alarmed by this and not just because the Washington Times is a patently dishonest, ideologically-driven excuse for a publication. […]

February 16, 2005 Jeff Pillar 0

In its first term, the George W. Bush presidency was marked by a series of tradeoffs. It traded the capture of a man who organized the flying of planes into the World Trade Center three-and-a-half years ago for the capture of Saddam Hussein, a man who did not. […]

Neglecting masculine duties causes women to suffer

February 16, 2005 Matt Esposito 0

After three years at the College I have noticed that things tend to happen in a predictable manner. The seasons change, rushes for fraternities and sororities occur, the administration ignores students and their concerns and “The Vagina Monologues” is once again performed. […]

Bush budget proposal fails to tame growing defecits

February 16, 2005 Zac Goldstein 0

We have a saying around these parts: if you are going to come late, don’t come at all. After months of standing behind a Republican-controlled Congress that has given us record deficits, President Bush has finally expressed his desire to cut spending. While this is a step in the right direction, it can only be described as too little, too late. […]

There’s no such things as free breakfast

February 16, 2005 Sarah Gasparetti 0

Due to a glitch in the Carte Blanche dining system, some students with Plan C, which does not offer unlimited access to Eickhoff Dining Hall before 11 a.m., thought that they were getting free breakfast for the first few weeks of the semester. However, Sodexho Dining Services, the company that supplies all food on campus, discovered the glitch and will deduct points from students who received free breakfasts during that time. […]

Ewing Township passed four new ordinances that are making it more difficult for students at the College to find housing off campus and causing landlords to discuss how their property may become unfit for rental.

The new ordinances create a variety of new safety, size and parking regulations for rental housing and increase the frequency of official inspections required by the township. […]
