It’s not always what it seems

December 7, 2012

My Saturday morning began rather ordinarily. I woke up, made a quick breakfast, and began my typical perusing of the various social media websites I frequent. As I was listening to some tunes, something befuddling appeared on my Twitter feed at 9:16 a.m. It was a tweet from NFL insider Jay Glazer re...

The gum just won’t last

November 28, 2012

Whether it’s Orbit, Five, Extra, or even Stride, gum looses its flavor faster now. I remember the good old days when gum would last for hours, but now i’m lucky if it still has flavor after thirty minutes. Gum has always been a staple in my utility belt. If I’m out somewhere and I eat, I have to...

Get the stake ready

November 26, 2012

I suppose I should expect it. I live in the Midwest, after all, somewhere near the buckle of the Bible Belt, where you will see churches around every corner and pro-life signs along the highway. But that doesn’t make it any more annoying when I have a question that I need answered, and it’s bloc...

Not so sorry Rams

September 30, 2012

It appears the Chicago Cubs are no longer the most hated team in St. Louis, and it’s not their neighbors, the Blackhawks, that have claimed this prestigious title. Oh no, it’s our friendly neighborhood Rams that have the honor of being St. Louis’ least-cherished sports franchise. I may sound...

Lunches change, students don’t

August 29, 2012

With lunch being the highlight of a typical student’s school day, major changes in the menu shouldn’t be expected to go unnoticed. The only problem is, Central’s students aren’t doing anything to change it. It seems to me that when an opportunity like this comes to stand up for what we want, ou...

Relationships are more than skin-deep

August 26, 2012

You've heard it a thousand times, from the time you were a little kid who thought the coolest thing to do on the computer was to play “Put-Put Saves the Zoo,” to now, when your parents warn you about it. I'm talking about the supposedly terrifying people from the internet. Now, there's usually t...

Running With Romney

August 20, 2012

For the past year you may have been wandering aimlessly through the labyrinth that is politics, hearing people on TV and at school talking about things like caucuses (whatever those are), but lucky for you it’s about to get more understandable. As Obama spends most of his time and energy on the tr...

Not so fake

May 9, 2012

As I was channel surfing on a Monday night, I stumbled upon my first professional wrestling match. The two competitors were Triple H and Shawn Michaels, two men that were once best friends, but now bitter enemies. I stared at the television screen, taking it all in, when Michaels kicked Triple H st...

Act of valor

May 3, 2012

Night falls over a compound in Abbottabad Pakistan; the compound in which Osama bin Laden resides. It’s a peaceful night in Pakistan that will soon be disrupted by the most elite of the Navy SEALs. At an airbase in Afghanistan, SEAL team VI is briefing for a mission that could change the course of...

Faulty reasoning leads to unnecessary protests

February 15, 2012

We all know that Westboro Baptist Church planned protests at two area schools on Monday, Feb. 6 (Fort Zumwalt East and Clayton High) to protest their usual thing, gays. It seems to me that, not only do these people need to find real jobs, they need to find new things to protest and allow people to be...

Shedding rights one at a time

February 8, 2012

What with all the hullabaloo about SOPA, it’s not surprising the majority of the American public has gracelessly overlooked another controversial piece of legislation. President Barack Obama signed it into law on New Year’s Eve, quietly slipping it under America’s nose while they were busy ce...

9/11 tenth anniversary: Reflections and fears

September 10, 2011

Most students know what the 11th of September means this year. For those who don’t know, it is not simply an ordinary anniversary of the terrorist attack that shocked the world. It is ten years later. Much has changed over these ten years. Former President George W. Bush went from patriot hero to b...
