FRESH HELL: Know thyself: How hot are you really?

I don't know what sparked celebrity doppelgänger week on Facebook, but I loved it. I had to keep enlarging people's pictures to make sure they hadn't suddenly gotten a lot more attractive. It's hilarious that everyone's idea of a doppelgänger is someone who has the same complexion, but is a few points more attractive on a 10-point scale.

COMMENTARY: Zoe was wrong: The Winter Olympics were awesome

I am of the exact opposite opinion of Zoe Daniels in her article "The Over-Hyped Olympics" (2.3.10). Right off the bat, she got my blood pounding by claiming that the Olympics "feature sports that are generally boring to watch." I don't see where she gets the idea that the incredible TV ratings that the Winter Olympics generate, be it for cross-country skiing or for the gold-medal hockey game - which had 10.

BLACK & WHITE: Miss manners for Facebook

The embarrassing number of hours I've spent trolling Facebook profiles have convinced me we need a Facebook etiquette handbook. You know, the sort of pamphlet that would've circulated in the 19th century: an almanac of do's and dont's for ladies and gentlemen who wish to participate in civil society.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Emotion is a loaded word

Re: "Presidential endorsement: Sarah Woolf" (9.3.10) The Tribune sounds downright patronizing when they tell a female political candidate to control her emotions.

Quebec Health Minister Yves Bolduc announced last week that the Quebec government will fully fund up to three cycles of in-vitro treatment for infertile couples. This announcement, which fulfills a pre-election promise made by Jean Charest in 2008, makes Quebec the first province to adopt such a policy.

EDITORIAL: Let us do our jobs; Mr. Neilson tear down this bylaw!

Last week, 10 McGill Tribune editors were forced to take leaves of absence in order to campaign for the creation of a $3 fee to support an independent Tribune. And while we're ecstatic that students voted "yes" to the fee, the bylaw that required half of our editorial board to resign needs to be changed.

Letters from the Editors

If you spend a lot of time complaining about McGill for its lack of or poorly run programs and student life, you would be a hypocrite to not vote YES for the Tribune's independence. Okay, hypocrite's a bit strong. But the point is, I spent a lot of time complaining about just that over my time at McGill.
