Don’t let bookstore extort you

As we approach the second semester, the thought of buying books again looms on the horizon. I remember a few months ago standing in line, hoping to God I would not have to drop classes that required plastic-wrapped books. As I laid three new Spanish books on the counter, the total reached $500. I then…

Letters to the Editor

This may be overkill, but I must add my two cents in response to the letter to the editor by Mr. Derek Bramble that was published on Nov. 2. When I first read the letter I did not feel it necessary to counter, as I did not believe anyone would take such a derogatory letter…

The Truth Will Always Win Out

We ended our Oct. 9 editorial regarding the theft of 9,000 issues of the Hurricane four days earlier with those words. And despite attempts by others to continually cloud the issue and distort the facts, the truth did, indeed, win out. Two members of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity have been suspended and a third…

Greeks and the ‘Hurricane’

The final disciplinary action against members of Alpha Epsilon Pi for the theft of the Oct. 5 editions of the Hurricane should not be seen as an indictment of the university Greek system. The theft was clearly the misguided action of certain individuals. These people sought to deny us of our right to publish and…

Letters to the Editor

To Mr. Senior-in-Political-Science & Marketing (a.k.a. David Stein): Honey, all I can say is: Speak for yourself. On Oct. 26, you attempted to rescue the reputation of all young Americans for their global ineptitude (i.e., everybody thinks we are “blundered by world geography [and] apathetic toward overseas happenings”). But all I read from you, the…

Nudity Misunderstood

Soon after I mentioned Brazilian g-strings in the first column I wrote for the Hurricane, George, a friend of mine, requested that I fill him on what they are all about. I promptly and gladly obliged, happy to diffuse information about that one tiny piece of clothing that graces our beautiful beaches and of which…

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor: I wholeheartedly agree with your statement in the last issue that “objective, unbiased reporting is the most important thing we do.” As a proud member of the University of Miami community for over three years, I have been one of the few avid readers of the Miami Hurricane, and it’s disappointing that you…

Drug war misdirected – solve underlying issues

An examination of the legality and morality of drug use reveals inconsistencies and suggests that we ought to look elsewhere to solve the world’s problems. While many find the idea of legalizing a whole slew of illicit drugs abhorrent, they seem to happily tolerate nicotine and alcohol. Cigarette smoking is a euphemism for sucking on…

Redefine the drug debate

The hemp worshippers over at National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) are trying to suck us into the abyss. Everywhere we look, from celebrities to university professors and even among some medical professionals, the pressure to succumb to the siren song of drug legalization permeates the stifled debate of one of the most…
