The imminent perils of self-love - R.H. Joseph

Recently I pointed out how spontaneity undermines self-absorption, how the leap of faith allowing individuals the illusion their perceptions define truth is undone when obsessive self-reflection is abandoned.

Allow me to explain, please - Ed Brock

Well, I've messed up again, it seems.

Dean candidacy not a lost cause - Billy Corriher

With presidential candidate Howard Dean facing a shrinking lead in New Hampshire polls, many are counting him out in tomorrow's primary. Dean finished a surprising third in the Iowa caucus last week, and Sen. John Kerry is hoping to capitalize on his momentum tomorrow.

Our candidate will get your wash cleaner - Bob Paslay

I was driving down the road the other day and on the radio comes this commercial for this super-duper miracle diet plan. This woman is recounting her life story, about how as a kid she was picked on and kidded because she was fat.

Sloppy copies miss quality of film work - Zach Porter

In this week's issue of Time Magazine there was an article concerning the piracy of movies via "camcording" and hi-speed Internet. It seems the big Hollywood studios are cracking down and have done everything short of hiring Tom Ridge, director of Homeland Security, as their official adviser. Studios are now able to track film prints to specific theaters and pinpoint where this great film robbery is taking place. I applaud Hollywood's efforts, and not because I love the suits and neckties that run the studios, but because I respect the art form and its intended form of exhibition.
