re: On More Actively Teaching Philosophy to the Citizenry - anc
[quote]The average college freshman is reading at a 7th Grade Level. [/quote] I can attest this is true. High schools have taken the attitude of "at least they are reading" when assigning texts. Classic literature is out. In my high school career, I read The Scarlet Letter, 1984, Animal Farm...

re: The embarrasing/ugly parts of your campus - anc
at MSU ... Dorman Hall. The ugliest building on campus happens to be in one of the prime locations on campus. Luckily when College Gameday was there they were able to hide it from the cameras because it is literally RIGHT ON THE JUNCTION. [img]http://www.pss.msstate.edu/images/dorman_sign.jpg[/i...

re: Anyone here gotten divorced cause of Pinterest? - anc
I don't know the couple, but we were told at a recent dinner party that the catalyst in a local divorce was Pinterest. Seems the wife wanted a better life and she saw all of the decorated houses that were being pinned and her current husband couldn't provide it. Disturbing trends, indeed. ...

re: College Gameday Week 2: Starkville or Knoxville? - anc
It would take Oregon losing to Eastern Washington or Michigan State losing to Western Michigan for Gameday not to be in East Lansing Week 2. MSU at Auburn on September 26 has a shot if both teams are unbeaten. That's a pretty lax weekend across the nation. You have UCLA-Arizona, BYU-Michigan, an...

re: Why don't we just ticket drug possession a la speeding - anc
[quote]Why don't we just legalize drugs and treat addicts as if they have a disease?[/quote] I agree, but ticketing would be a compromise and would largely be unenforced. There have been two local stories in the past couple years that have made me shiver. One was a man lost his job and was ups...

Why don't we just ticket drug possession a la speeding - anc
Seems like a good compromise. I have never used an illegal drug. I didn't even know what marijuana smelled like until I got to college, but this is ridiculous. We are throwing people in prison for life for this? [link=(http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/02/27/fate-vincent-winslow-got-lif...

My bold prediction is that the election comes down to Ohio, Florida and Virginia. Ohio and Florida go to the GOP, but Virginia goes blue. But a Michigan, Wisconsin or Pennsylvania goes red surprisingly and close and the GOP wins the election. ...
