Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto — whoops, Mr. Gore

September 16, 2003 Matt Esposito 0

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. […]

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. […]

Don’t need a coach, I’m ready to play

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. […]

Clinton or Blair, is there a difference?

September 16, 2003 Matt McDowell 0

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. […]

Alcohol: the good, the bad & the drunk: Dry 20 years and counting

September 9, 2003 Matt Gabe 0

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. […]

Tax cuts are like death, but better

September 9, 2003 Matt Esposito 0

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. […]

Calif. voters can change future, again

September 9, 2003 Dan Cuellar 0

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. […]

College administration dodges student input

September 9, 2003 Matt Richman 0

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. […]

Brother White should not have spoken so soon

September 9, 2003 Rachel Donahue 0

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. […]

Don’t listen to everything the tube tells you

September 9, 2003 Kevin Semanick 0

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. […]

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). […]

Don’t punch your local cashier, please

August 25, 2003 copress 0

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. […]
