I thought I’d start the semester off with a little humor.

A man goes on the Internet. He posts something annoying. He posts it under a user name. Then he goes to jail.

The unfortunate thing is that this is no joke.

On Jan. 5, President Bush signed a bill that assigns serious repercussions, including fines and up to two years in jail, to people who anonymously “annoy” other people on the Internet. […]

There’s no “I” in basketball

January 25, 2006 Kenny Lucas 0

I was never really into sports until I turned seven, when I was introduced to basketball.

It wasn’t a sport I adapted to quickly. In the beginning, I was pretty bad: I had a terrible shot, my defense was wretched and I couldn’t pass for dear life. I thought my career in basketball would end very soon. […]

January 25, 2006 Helen Walters 0

With 31 homicides, 2005 was the deadliest year in Trenton’s history, up from 18 in 2004.

The rising murder rate appears to be part of a larger trend in cities in New Jersey. Out of New Jersey’s “big six” urban cities – Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, Elizabeth, Trenton and Camden – only Camden saw a decrease in 2005. […]
