Some big white sneakers to fill

April 26, 2006 Kate Bernyk 0

As they would say on “Project Runway,” he has a “point of view.” Dr. Robert Cole’s style truly does stand alone, and he sticks to the classics: khaki pants, blue collared shirt, red suspenders (only to be replaced occasionally by a reserve black pair), white sneakers and a pocket watch worn as a necklace.

Hey Arnold (Schwarzenegger)! Pop Government

October 14, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

I knew that Arnold Schwarzenegger was going to be governor of California the minute he announced he was going to run on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” So that was the day that I made my peace with the idea of the actor, who once portrayed a pregnant man, would be a high ranking public official. […]

Cage ignites ‘Matchstick’

September 23, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

There is something attractive about movies that are about “good” guys who do “bad” things. Brad Pitt won us over as a psycho-second personality in “Fight Club,” George Clooney stole our hearts and a lot of money in “Ocean’s Eleven” and the drug-dealing coke-addict portrayed by Johnny Depp in “Blow” made us wonder why he had to go to jail. […]

Nothing is too queer for pop culture’s eye

September 23, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

Tuesday night is always a very exciting night at my house. Not because we don’t have class on Wednesday (because we all do), but because the best show on television is on.

Normally, I watch very little TV, ranging from CNN in the morning to my strange obsession with VH1 shows. […]

First gay school opens in New York: Sign me up for this!

September 16, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

Would heterosexuals go to a mostly gay high school? This hetero would, and I will tell you why.

When I first heard about the creation of an all-gay high school, I wasn’t entirely sure it would be a good idea. The obvious reason was, how can we fully integrate the homosexual community into the mainstream if we separate it out in the education system?

But after reading about this school, I learned that separation and segregation is not what this school is about, and it will have a positive effect on society. […]

Summer political heat comes to an end

August 25, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

Politically, you could say it was a very eventful summer. Well, it was for me anyway. I thought I would steal the Sports Editors idea and do a little recap of the summers’ political events (the only difference between those Sporty ones and me is I actually paid a bit of attention). […]

Saturday is rugby day and it should always be that way

April 29, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

I almost forgot how great winning feels, but what I actually forgot was how great it is to be a part of a team.

The only sport I had ever done in my life was gymnastics. For about 12 years, I was a part of a team of really talented gymnasts, both on my club and high school teams. […]

Turks, Kurds need clarity from U.S.

April 22, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

The Kurds have recently reclaimed the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, the claimed “Kurdish Jerusalem,” and are now ousting hundreds of Iraqi Arabs from the area. This places the U.S. in a very sticky situation, or maybe better stated in between a rock and a hard place. […]

Iraq is a safer place without Geraldo

April 8, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

Not that I needed another reason to think that Geraldo Rivera is ridiculous, but he has gone and embarrassed the field of journalism once again.

If you haven’t heard, the Pentagon asked Rivera to leave Iraq after drawing pictures in the sand of U.S. […]

Graphic Identity: Get over the change

April 1, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

Oh, boo-hoo, the logo is gone. Can you believe it? I mean, they actually took the beloved clock tower from us? (OK, can you actually smell the sarcasm dripping from the page?)

Seriously, never have I witnessed such a ridiculous forum for debate as I have seen on this campus over the past week. […]

From Gavin to Billy Joe, best albums of our time

April 1, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

Ahh, the mid-90s. A time for most of us that meant neon was cool, as were birthday parties at roller rinks and bowling alleys, slouch socks were worn over your stretch pants (or easily substituted with acid wash jeans) and all your friends told you if you ate Pop Rocks with a Coke, your stomach would explode. […]

Give her a mic and she’ll speak her mind

March 18, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

Comedienne and actress Kathy Griffin cracked up the crowd once again, but this time it wasn’t at an awards show or in a music video. This time it was in Kendall Hall and there wasn’t a person in the auditorium that wasn’t laughing after her celebrity-bashing set. […]

Sittin’ with Kathy Griffin

An actress, comedienne and reality show star shares her career story…

KB: Why do you perform at colleges so often?

KG: I love doing colleges. I pretty much do them every time I get called. At colleges, I can really say whatever I want. […]

He’s not stung or stinging, he’s Sting

February 25, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

I know most of you have found yourself humming a song by Sting at one time or another. You know you have sung, “Roxanne, you don’t have to put on the red light … Roxanne,” or “Goo goo goo, a da da da, is all I want to say to you.” I have to admit that I probably do so a little more than the average person.
