Small School Blues; Big School Hopes

Write for the Future | November 25, 2015 | College
The addiction takes over at exactly 9:30 A.M. on business days. I hold my breath to see what phases the stock market. Could Pfizer skyrocket over 50 percent because of news for a groundbreaking cancer drug? Could McDonald's dip 50 percent because of higher than expected trans fat in Big Macs?

I love Mizzou today just as much as I did the first day I learned about it. The only way that we are ever going to grow as a university, and as a community, is to listen to what everyone has to say. I know that it will take some time for the university to heal, but I know that I will still be here while it does.

Josh Horwitz | November 24, 2015 | Politics
The NRA will continue to attempt to recruit young men like Jacob into the gun culture. It therefore falls upon the rest of us to teach young Americans that guns will never be a solution to what ails them, either personally or politically.

Jean Hanff Korelitz | November 24, 2015 | Fifty
