The Bank of Europe vs. the Church of America

Guest Columnist

March 9, 2005

Why can't the United States have a Church of America? We have a Bank of America. You don't have to bank at Bank of America just because it's called Bank of America, and in Church of America, you don't have to subscribe to any particular dogma except lip service to God and Jesus. The stance is basic...

KCSN needs programming changes

Guest Columnist

March 9, 2005

Many students here are probably unaware of the fact that we have a campus radio station... sort of. This isn't a column that will tell you to listen to that station, either. It's quite the opposite. KCSN is based on campus, receives its Federal Communications Commission license through CSUN offices...

New ‘tax by the mile’ plan way off the mark

Guest Columnist

March 7, 2005

People say that those of us who live in southern California are some of the luckiest people in the world. The sun shines over 300 days of the year. We have Hollywood, miles and miles of beaches and Disneyland. But what most people who don't live in the L.A. area fail to realize is the high cost of livi...

No moral escape from vegetarianism

Guest Columnist

March 7, 2005

When I tell people I am a vegetarian, I get a myriad of responses. Most people are curious about why I decided to give up meat, some want to know how I get my protein, and some want to know how that weird Morning Star/ Boca food tastes. When I tell people they also shouldn't eat meat, they get downrigh...

Women’s studies, feminism full of misconceptions

Guest Columnist

March 2, 2005

Let's play a quick game of word association. What is the first thought that comes to mind when you hear the term "women's studies"? How about feminism? It has been my experience that when I speak of such topics, shock and irritation fills the air, and an off-color joke told by either sex a...

Local TV news full of misguided speculation

Guest Columnist

March 1, 2005

I try to refrain as much as possible from watching the local news for two basic reasons: there is too much speculation and there is too much negativity. My family was glued to the TV Jan. 28 when an abandoned suicide attempt on commuter train tracks in Glendale killed 11 people. This was because one ...

America’s brand new enemy: Merry ole’ England

Guest Columnist

February 28, 2005

I never thought I would say this, but I think it's time for the United States to go on the offensive. The Cold War is back on, but there's a new enemy. Last week, President Bush traveled to Europe to try mending fences with former allies who disagreed with the United States during the much-maligned war in Iraq....

Crisis looms over U.S. science research

Guest Columnist

February 28, 2005

The security, health and welfare of the United States are threatened by a crisis the likes of which we have not seen since Sputnik. When the United States realized that the Russians were ahead of us in the space race, our nation quickly put into effect a multi-billion dollar crash program to improve s...

Grassroots border patrol can become influential

Guest Columnist

February 24, 2005

T he United States Border Patrol is in a panic about a grassroots movement that has sprung up in southern Arizona. Calling themselves the "Minuteman Project," a group of roughly 500 volunteers plans on patrolling our southern border in search of immigrants from Mexico who are trying to cross into the U...

Reality TV transcends fad status

Guest Columnist

February 24, 2005

W hat is this obsession we have with reality TV? Why must we watch poor helpless fools eat cockroaches or be ridiculed on national television, all for the sake of cash and/or their 15 minutes of fame? It's certainly "television," but is this reality? Is it even entertainment? Apparently, and perhaps ...

Evolutionary ‘theory’ is simply that: a theory

Guest Columnist

February 23, 2005

As a typical student attending a typical secular university, I am more than familiar with the general consensus regarding the theory of evolution. Evolutionary theory is put forth with such confidence by the academic community that many have come to regard it as unquestioned fact. My humble goal is to...

Immigrants being pandered to yet again

Guest Columnist

February 23, 2005

Latinos are caught smack in between the controversial collision of two of the most "hot-button" issues of the year: Social Security and immigration. Proposed by President Bush, the hotly contended "REAL ID Act," which tightens U.S. immigration systems so as to achieve maximum homeland security, passed 261-1...
