Simonson: One bad class can sour the college experience

Well, this is it. The last Christmas break of my undergraduate career. (You can make melodrama out of anything if you try hard enough.) Three more credit hours, and they'll be handing me a diploma. I don't really believe it. Diplomas are myths, like Valhalla, Atlantis or Michael Jackson. They're not real. Certainly not for me.
 

Caster: Bin Laden tapes reveal terrorist plot

Everyone should have had an opportunity to view the motion picture event of the decade: the Osama bin Laden video. In it, we see the absolutely detestable bin Laden recounting his effort and joy bringing death and destruction to the heart of America with an equally disgusting Saudi citizen Khaled al-Harbi.
