Letter to the Editor

Dear Editors (and Sam Chott, in particular), I am writing in response to a story in the Collegian (#TUhonors911 misuses victims to advertise of Sep 19, 2016). While I appreciate your passion regarding tasteless and shameless marketing of 9/11 victims, I do not agree this was outcome of the tribute that took place at TU […]

Bleacher Creature

Was #EvenYear a Lie? It’s easy to forget now, but at the midway point of the 2016 MLB season, the most dominant team and prospective World Series favorite was not the Chicago Cubs (whose incredible early- and late-season records obscure a long stretch of mediocre baseball in between) but the San Francisco Giants. Led by […]
