    Tiffany & Earl

      Dear Tiffany and Earl, I’m a freshman in Ray and I’ve ate too much “candy” these past few weeks. Now I can’t fit into my bunny costume! How do I lose the weight so I can go “tick-or-treating” on Eaton Street? Sincerely, Almost a Pumpkin Munchkin

    Missing the Madnesss

    Pandemonium. That is the only word that can even come close to capturing the essence of college football. But even that falls short of fully summarizing it. Upsets, big plays, kids thrust into stardom, traditions, rivalries that are ancient and timeless. It is the NFL, but with more teams, no playoffs, and crazier upsets. School pride for alumni centers on a win versus a rival. Passion swirls around a successful program, to the point where an Alabama fan went to rival Auburn’s campus and poisoned a tree that served as a landmark on their campus. Students travel by the thousands to stadium parking lots, tailgating all day and then entering a raucous crowd to cheer on their team.

    ELECTION: Where Does the Church Stand?

      Introduction Before coming to Providence College, I was a parish priest in Kentucky. For those of you who don’t know that part of the country, believe me when I tell you that the good people of the Bluegrass State take their college sports very, very seriously. Nevermore is that intensity felt than when the University of Louisville squares off against its instate foe, the University of Kentucky. The passions of fanatical devotees on both sides are stirred up in the days leading up to the big game. Streets are adorned by ubiquitous billboards and each family indicates its loyalty with the flag of either university flown from the front door of its house.

    Carving Pumpkins

    There’s something oddly cathartic about carving a pumpkin. The swift movements of the knife through the top of its orange head remind me of surgery, perhaps Dr. Frankenstein piecing together his creation. I’ve never considered myself a violent person, but there’s something about the feel of the knife in my hand that feels right. It’s not a utensil; it’s an extension of my arm. It’s as much a part of me as my legs, my feet, my nose, the hatred that I harbor in my heart.

    Obama Leads War on Women, Romney Protects Them

    As a woman, I naturally approach the election from the perspective of my sex, although my judgments are also colored by other variables, such as my values. But for now, let’s stick with the fact that I’m a woman living through the momentous presidential election of 2012 that will decide whether President Barack Obama will remain in the White House or if Governor Mitt Romney will replace him.
