MY POINT … AND I DO HAVE ONE: Crazy like a fox

Thanks to the great privilege afforded to me by living north of the 49th parallel, I find the American right really funny. The Bill O'Reillys, the "These Colours Don't Run" American-flag T-shirts, and everything Fox News has to offer are far more entertaining and, frankly, far less disingenuous than the earnest approach to conservative ideas put forward by the "liberals" of the Democratic Party or our own Conservative Party of Canada.

EDITORIAL: Quebec should leave religious paranoia to the French

There are many areas in which France is worth emulating. The French have impressive universal health care, a generous day care system, and they enjoy a high standard of living. But unfortunately, the Parti Québécois and certain elements of Quebec society seem hell-bent on copying one of the worst aspects of French culture: religious paranoia.

OFF THE BOARD: Of football and 9/11

For many, the highlight of the TV viewing experience this weekend was the season premiere of The Simpsons or Family Guy on Fox. Both shows are usually funny, occasionally outlandish and once in a while insightful, but don't ask me to comment on them because I didn't watch either one.

OFF THE BOARD: The self-shot revolution

The bastard son of the 17th century's commissioned works and the late 19th century's photographic revolution, portraits are here to stay. We've all had one taken. Graduations. Weddings. Family Reunions. Selfies in the park. Sunday night webcam sessions. Blue Dog Friday night Canon-fests.

OFF THE BOARD: Proud to be a man again

Early forms of feminism were founded upon the notion of female equality; that women should be able to take firm control of their personal and professional lives, be equally represented in the workplace, receive the same professional courtesy and salary as men and obtain the respect they merit in the home.

THE HELPLESS ROMANTIC: Dispatch from the Orient

This column comes to you from Shanghai because I'm still on vacation. I am embedded deep in the pearl-encrusted, dragon-swarming mists of the Far East. Of course, while old Western beliefs about the yellow horde no longer hold, new peculiarities have taken their place.

EDITORIAL: The 4Floors conundrum

When an issue is too divisive for our editorial board to reach a consensus on it, we feel that our readers are better served by two competing editorials that look at all sides of the debate. With that in mind, we tackle the party everyone loves to hate: 4Floors-should it stay or should it go? UNLEASH THE POTENTIAL McGill students are spoiled.

WET PAINT: Baby and Balanciaga

As we have probably all noticed at some point, current fashions often conflict. While everyone is still flapping about flats and their newly wistful attitude to life and walking, Pam Anderson-inspired monstrosities are somehow attaching themselves to all my friends' feet.

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.
