Expectation sounds pretty ridiculous described this way, but somehow very few people see anything wrong with it. It is a form of selective blindness that can...  Read More »

Politicians Should Embrace Internet Memes

Politicians Should Embrace Internet Memes

Everyone with a social media account and more than two friends or followers has seen political memes. They’re clever ways to convey a simple point, which can then be reiterated, with slight variation, by another person who laughs at the meme. The dankest meme now is “Bernie or Hillary?” (dankness is to memes what catchiness is to pop songs). Im...  Read More »

Veteran Pitchers Lead Charge to Defend Conference Title

Veteran Pitchers Lead Charge to Defend Conference Title

Matthew Walker

The baseball team is heading into the spring season with last year’s North Coast Athletic Conference Champion title under their belt and a squad of veterans who lived to tell the tale — and are eager to tell it again.

Cool or Drool: Cam Newton

Dan Bisno, Columnist
