(6) Comments | Posted July 4, 2013 | 10:33 AM

May We Offer You a Crack Pipe Instead?

(50) Comments | Posted January 4, 2012 | 2:12 PM

You've seen them everywhere. Outside in the cold. They move quickly to avoid the harshness of the weather. They're not homeless, but they're treated as such. You hear the flick of a lighter, the quick puff, and then like the spark from a lighter, they are gone, cursing the cold...

Which Is More Useless: Limbaugh or a Classics Major?

(219) Comments | Posted November 2, 2011 | 12:49 PM

Dear Mr. Limbaugh,

I see you have let your own educational insecurities shine through in your latest rant in which you "bravely" attempted to decipher the "sad-sack story" of a Classical Studies scholar. Bravo. If only you had taken a philosophy course about the Sophists,...

Canadians vs. Americans: The Final Showdown of Manners

(177) Comments | Posted August 23, 2011 | 3:10 PM

Canada is known as America's polite hat. My Canadian friends always encourage me to travel with Canadian flags stuck to my luggage when going to Europe, as I will be treated "better" if I manage to trick Europeans into thinking I'm Canadian. Why? Because, according to them, the world's opinion...
