  Bringing out the trailer trash in youPDF files may take a moment to load

One Yellow Rabbit just can't keep its reputation straight-edged. From April 1-12, the Rabbits will let loose a one-man show on the Big Secret Theatre stage, and, quite frankly, they will stop at nothing less than to stir shit up--in drag at a trailer park.

  Supernal rising to new heightsPDF files may take a moment to load

If you were helping to fight tuition by eating a burger on the south lawn of Mac Hall this Thursday, there was a good chance you heard Calgary-based Supernal playing nearby. And as you ate that burger, whether it was veggie or beef, your inner dialogue was saying, "Hey, that ain't bad."

  Breaking the chains of popPDF files may take a moment to load

Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard believed that facing a crisis was necessary, even desirable, if a person was to arrive at an understanding of what he or she wanted to achieve in life. For Calgary native Andrea Revel, this maxim is all too true.

A decision to move to Montreal and abandon her teaching career, friends and family in order to produce her new CD, Citysong, has at times cast a shadow of turmoil across Revel's path.

  Find work this summerPDF files may take a moment to load

Do you remember those carefree childhood summers spent running through sprinklers and chasing each other through green lawns? Well, forget about them, because this summer your pathetic student ass needs a job. Fast.

Fortunately for all currently unemployed students, there's Career Services--a little office with enough employment services to ensure that you're rolling in the green this summer; metaphorically and literally.

  Tuition: 6.3 per cent, and differentialsPDF files may take a moment to load

Students eerily chanted "Harvey, Harvey, Harvey," and shouted "Down with tuition!" outside the U of C Board of Governors meeting on Fri., Mar. 21. Lofty students smacked picket signs against a second-story Dining Centre window from outside. Even the walls rattled at times with pounding. But none of these actions stopped the board from implementing differential tuition and a maximum allowable tuition increase of 6.3 per cent for undergraduate students. This year's decisions follow a 3.7 per cent base tuition hike in November, 2001.

  Anti-Americanism misguidedPDF files may take a moment to load

I am sick of the anti-American sentiment that has arisen in the past weeks. I support George Bush because he can justify this war.

Most people can agree that if Saddam Hussein has any weapons of mass destruction, he must be disarmed. The dispute seems to be U.S. motivation, timing and legality.

  The best news isn't embeddedPDF files may take a moment to load

The last Iraq war started live on CNN. Back then, that was about as intrusive as the media got into the activities of the military. Of course, every war brings about new revelations in media coverage. We've come a long way since World War II, when Lorne Greene--the "Voice of Doom"--read the casualty lists over the radio from well behind the front lines.

  Fiction better than reality of warPDF files may take a moment to load

Writing a column about fiction is difficult because the columnist must convey in prose the power of often-lyrical, brutal or transcendent writing. In other words, the authors I am about to discuss are much better writers than I am.

  Klein has no right to an opinionPDF files may take a moment to load

Ralph Klein irresponsibly expressed his support for the American war effort against Iraq and Saddam Hussein in a letter to American Ambassador to Canada Paul Cellucci last week. Scathing response came from the Prime Minister's Office and Klein was quick to offer an unapologetic response: "I'm entitled to my opinion."

Unfortunately, in this case, he's not.
