OFF THE BOARD: Mac for President

Those stupid Apple commercials are everywhere. If you haven't seen the black and white Warhol-esque ads of people dancing in a faux-minimalist frenzy, the towers of cds exploding into pretentious, post-modern music mayhem or even the latest iPod glow-in-the-dark graffiti kick, you are missing out on one wild ride of counter-culture appropriation.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Butt out I'm so happy that McGill is enforcing the new anti-smoking legislation by implementing new policies. It's about time that non-smokers had some rights around here. Non-smokers are sick of breathing in second-hand smoke everywhere we go. If people want to smoke, they should do it in places where they are not affecting anyone else's health.

VOX POPULI: Canadian citizenship is not a right

As pointed out by Andrew Coyne in the National Post on September 23rd, approximately 7,000 of the 15,000 Canadians evacuated from Lebanon have since returned. The cost of the evacuation, around $85-million, will not be picked up by the evacuees but rather by taxpayers.

THE HELPLESS ROMANTIC: Cogs of the Big Red Machine

I agreed to stand as a delegate to attend the Liberal leadership conference, so I found myself in church last Sunday. The service was well under way and so was the delegate selection meeting. Delegates get to pick the next Liberal leader and possibly the next Prime Minister of Canada.

SIMPLY SPEAKING: Harper needs to stand up for gun control

The House of Commons returned from summer recess last Monday. I don't know about you but I miss recess. It's fun to leave your work at your desk and run outside to the playground and play games like hide-and-seek. But I don't think that MPs appreciate recess or hide-and-seek; now that recess is over, they're "it.

SIMPLY SPOKEN: Canadian defence indefensible

I was lying in bed last week, spaced out from migraine meds and depressed from feeling out of sorts and useless, when I finally found something that made me laugh: "Guards walk off job at four B.C. border crossings." As you may already know-and as I quickly found out-Canadian border guards have the right to walk off the job if things get dangerous.

WET PAINT: Let’s go play on the gender gym

I remember what a taunt it used to be to be told that you throw like a girl. A girl obviously can't throw very well. Of course we all now realize that, as a girl, it should be a compliment to be told that you throw like a girl. How terribly anti-feminist to think otherwise, right? Along with this reasoning came a wave of other reclamations-a process of recoding all that is deemed "women's' work" as nothing less than superb.

EDITORIAL: Our assemblies are dysfunctional

The Tribune found itself in a difficult position last year when deciding whether or not to support the constitutional amendment on general assemblies. Essentially, we supported the idea of having regular assemblies but believed it would be damaging, democratically speaking, to lower the quorum from 200 to 100 students.

EDITORIAL: The Tribune: Under new management

The beginnings are the hardest to write. It's always about looking for a witty way to say what has been said before (basically: welcome back), and staring at a white screen with a slowly blinking cursor is no way to get inspired. Consulting the archives for advice from former editors doesn't really work either-it makes you feel unoriginal.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: J-Board soars to new lows

Re: "Newburgh to face J-Board" (23.03.10) There are several doses of shame that are deserved in light of this appeal to the Student's Society's Judicial Board. Shame on you, the J-Board, for accepting this appeal well over a month after the General Assembly.
