Banned books limit knowledge, threatens independent thought

Limiting exposure to foul language, racism, and explicit content may sound like a good idea at first, but when the line of censorship continues to move to accommodate things that offend people – eventually everything will be censored. Books have long been a place of knowledge, imagination, and escape, but their fundamental purpose is threatened […]

Political unrest: Media bias, social agendas cause disdain for democratic zoo

I’m sick of politics.

This doesn’t mean I’m not politically informed or don’t have a political opinion. No, it’s quite the opposite. I have a strong political opinion, regularly read the newspaper, and even read a political magazine.

I’m just so sick of politics.

Music captures innate human emotion of fear, hope: Linkin Park’s 4th album connects to audiences on spiritual level

After listening to all of Linkin Park’s albums, I loved all of them, but the one that stood out to me the most was A Thousand Suns. It is a concept album dealing with human fears, such as a nuclear war and the end of the world. This was a genius move on Linkin Park’s part, as the different style took the band to a whole new level.

Imagine Dragons unifies listeners with unique sound, varied genres

Imagine Dragons are one of the most well known artists in the world, earning nine Billboard Music Awards, and amassing over five billion views on YouTube. Audiences enjoy them because they appeal to both rock fans, such as myself, and pop fans as well.
When turning on the radio, listeners have a good chance of hearing an Imagine Dragons song, whether it would be their newly released pump-up anthem, “Natural”, or an older hit such as “Radioactive”. I like “Natural” because of its haunting verses, strong chorus, and the music video, which is even more haunting than the lyrics.

Return of the Queen: Theatre reigns as iconic symbol of downtown Bryan

Bright, flashing lights. Throngs of people. Conversation occasionally punctuated by laughter. The scent of food diffusing through the air. This was once the normal scene in the early to mid 1900s in downtown Bryan. However, as the city began to expand and businesses began moving closer to where people lived, downtown Bryan slowly fell into disrepair as malls and big-box retailers took over. What was once the cultural hub of town became a run-down, deserted reminder of times passed.

Antiquated dress code focused on control instead of learning

For many years, school dress code has created conflict among students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Growing up in Bryan, I’ve always had to follow the dress code policy, and if I don’t comply I have to fix it or suffer the consequences such as getting sent to SAC or even getting sent home. While I believe there should be some type of dress code for students such as not being allowed to wear a bathing suit to school, gang related clothing, or any article of clothing that promotes the use of drugs and alcohol many constraints within the dress code policy should be eliminated.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my: Peta takes aim at freeing animals from their cardboard prisons

PETA, a group scorned equally by animal rights activists, vegans, hunters, and just about everyone else, zeroed in on Nabisco’s Barnum’s Animal Crackers as their latest crusade target. The animal cracker’s classic packaging depicted circus animals in cages as a reference to Barnum and Bailey’s Circus. Now, at PETA’s request, Nabisco has removed the bars to allow the animals to roam free in an open field.
