From the time when the future carpet-bagging Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton, coined the phrase to the current recall in California, some Democrats have (and still do) refer to the mythical “vast right-wing conspiracy” as the reason for their failures. […]
We all know the facts. On Sept. 11, 2001, at 8:45 a.m., American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. Eighteen minutes later, just as people were beginning to comprehend what had just happened, American Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the second tower. […]
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. […]
Remember Friday afternoons? The bell rang and the buses lined up – it was the weekend. You were too young to drink or go to the movies, but Fridays still meant something.
Before dinner you met your friends on a leaf-covered field across from your house to play football. […]
Having spent the past eight months in the United Kingdom (Scotland specifically), I can safely say that King George is not alone in his madness.
The proof lies in Bush’s partner-in-crime, one Anthony Charles Lynton Blair. But it is Bill Clinton, rather than Bush, whom Blair uses as his muse. […]
For the first semester of my sophomore year at the College, I was on disciplinary probation for underage drinking on campus and hosting a party in my room.
I was put on probation during the summer, and had no chance to appeal.
To most people reading this, it may not seem like a big deal, and in actuality, it really wasn’t. […]
It’s no secret that I enjoy alcohol on a regular basis. Because of my relaxed lifestyle, my fellow editors have pigeonholed me (respectfully) as the resident boozehound.
I have been charged with the responsibility of giving my thoughts on the art of boozing. […]
Benjamin Franklin once said, “In the world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.”
In America it happens to be death and a lot of taxes.
In the past three years much has been said about taxes, mostly in the context of the Bush administration. […]
Twenty-five years ago, Californians decided that the time had come to make a dramatic change in the ominous direction that their state was headed.
In the late 1970s, the consequences of high inflation California’s real estate values forced property tax rates to escalate so rapidly that California was destined to become the most heavily taxed state in the nation. […]
Upon my acceptance to the College, I encountered the same question from relatives, friends of the family and coworkers: “Which college of New Jersey are you going to?”
Most people it seems are still in the dark about the name change. Many need to be told “Trenton State College” to be able to recognitize the institution. […]
Reading the Freshman issue of The Signal brought back memories of my freshman year.
The first time I met Brother Stephen White I didn’t know whether I should be offended or laugh. I chose the latter.
There was buzz in the residence hall that entire day about how all of us were going to hell for one reason or another. […]
The voices on cable news are deafening (or at least muted on my television). Their slants and biases stretch and destroy traditional definitions of journalism. From these shows, mediatainment, an entire new genre of television has emerged.
Fox News Channel has been said by many as the largest culprit in the industry, despite its slogan of being “Fair and Balanced. […]
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). […]
Her face turns red, her hands clench, and she is about to let loose a huge temper tantrum right there in front of all the clerks and shoppers in the store.
This is not a spoiled child who is upset because her mother won’t let her get a toy. This is not the over tired toddler who needs a nap. […]
