Women live in fear

IUS Horizon

September 27, 2008

We are a nation that thrives on fear. In the Michael Moore film “Bowling for Columbine” the director walks down a suburban street in Canada, randomly entering people’s homes. He is able to do this because first, he’s got some cajones, and second, because the citizenry is perfectly comfortable...

Bail me out — I’m in debt too

IUS Horizon

September 27, 2008

As most of you have heard, President Bush and his posse are asking for $700 billion to bail out financial screw ups, AIG, Fannie-Freddie, Merrill Lynch and many more. All I want to know is where is this money coming from? Read More »...

Access to information needs improving

IUS Horizon

September 20, 2008

I’m not entirely surprised our police blotter seems to be a hit, but it is interesting to see how students are intrigued with which of their buddies are getting busted week to week, and why they’re getting busted. It hasn’t been easy getting it in here, though. After our first publication of the...

It’s gonna happen

IUS Horizon

September 20, 2008

For as long as I can remember, I have been a fan of the Chicago Cubs. They have supplied me with uncountable heartbreaking moments since the late '80s. My first vivid memories of the Cubs are from the 1989 season, of a team that included Greg Maddux, Andre Dawson and Ryne Sandberg, just to name a few...

SGA on right track

IUS Horizon

September 13, 2008

SGA stands for the Student Government Association. Last week, several of its members took a small step toward recognizing and living up to part of the responsibility that comes with being a government entity. During their last meeting, the SGA was unable to enter a secret executive session to discuss...

My vote doesn’t count

IUS Horizon

September 13, 2008

I am voting for John McCain. If you are too, that’s great. I honestly don’t give a crap who or why you are voting for whomever you are voting for. I really hate election time. The endless commercials and speeches that the candidates don’t even write is enough to make me puke. Elections are no...

Where have all the students gone

IUS Horizon

September 9, 2008

The first week at IU Southeast included many activities for the “Week of Welcome.”  The last event of the week was held on Friday, Aug. 29, between 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Hoosier Room. The activity was Game Day, I Survived Week One.  Well, obviously no one survived the week, because no one showed...

Presidential election deathmatch

IUS Horizon

September 6, 2008

Since we are on the topic of politics, I didn’t want to disappoint. As a journalism student, I like paying attention to the news, but most of my friends don’t know squat about the election coming up between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain. Read More »...

Palin, much ado about nothing

IUS Horizon

September 6, 2008

When the announcement was made that Sarah Palin was going to be McCain’s running mate, my first thought was, “People who use a superfluous ‘h’ on the end of their first name have no business being in office.” My second thought was, “Brilliant move, McCain.” Read More »...

Garbage in, garbage out

IUS Horizon

September 6, 2008

We are the VH1 generation. It seems as though every generation of people has some form of great art to show for posterity. In our country’s days of infancy, we had great orators like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Paine writing moving, powerful works of political content. Read More »...
