Letters to the Editor

Prayer Do you sometimes look at your watch and don't know what time it is? Do you sometime go to sleep, wake up thinking you're somewhere but discover you're somewhere else? Do you sometimes go to a room in your house and wonder why you went there? Do you sometime feel so helpless that you say to yourself "God help me," regardless of what your religion is? I do too! I can go on with an exhaustive list of those little things that we have in common and define us as human beings.

UNCOMMONLY THOUGHTFUL: Oral sex is great

Warning: The following column is written with a heterosexual audience in mind (which is something I wouldn't normally do), but generally I think the queer community is much more open to the joys of oral sex and doesn't need a talking to on the subject. Why has performing oral sex become a derogatory thing? Why do the media, music industry and porn (okay, bad example) make it out to be all about power for the person receiving it? I think it's about power for the person giving oral sex.

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.

OFF THE BOARD: Vexed in the city

Sex and the City is the physical embodiment of everything that is wrong with the universe. Yes. I said everything. If you have not heard of Sex and the City, stop reading now; not because you won't understand what is to follow, but because you are a filthy liar and I have no patience for you.

OFF THE BOARD: Smart people have never been so stupid

I work at a record store and we have a listening counter on the basement level: a broad semi-circular counter with a half-dozen control panels and headphones jutting out of it at two-foot intervals. Customers stand about shoulder-length apart, skimming through the liner notes of a potential purchase, bopping their heads rhythmically.

FRESH HELL: Losing your student ID

Being a student sucks sometimes. Crazy stress, daily intellectual calisthenics, and intense sleep deprivation are all part of the day-to-day routine. By now, you're probably used to the stress - you may even enjoy it on some level. Still, many of you, like me, have likely been wishing for a lighter course load since you started learning fractions, or at least for a break from homework that didn't coincide with getting a summer job.

EDITORIAL: The CRTC shouldn’t tangle with the Web

Back in 1999, in a rare and uncharacteristic display of good sense, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission announced: "Our message is clear. We are not regulating any portion of the Internet." Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.

OFF THE BOARD: My first mugshot

As a recent martyr for student journalism, I can say that getting arrested sucks. I attended the 14th annual March Against Police Brutality on March 15 with two other Tribune photojournalists to get some shots of the inevitable violence and rioting that occurs during the event.
