Welcome change this semester

Welcome back to another semester at UH. Welcome back to no parking, overpriced books, long lines for food, overpriced food, people on cell
phones, miserably dense traffic, huge classes, construction in the middle of campus and rude drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Welcome
back to campus bookstore employees who work for evil conglomerates just out to take money from poor college students, who never buy books
back unless it's for pennies on the dollar and then sell them for 50 times their worth -- a little slice of home.
 

Corporations overpower humans

Prior to 1886, the entities known as corporations did not have the same rights as individual people. The first corporations, created in the 1600s,
had very limited charters and were answerable to the government and the people; if a corporation displeased enough people or ceased to
serve the public interest, its charter could be revoked.
 

UH 'subsidy' remains a mystery

The "break" is over already? Yes, it's time to begin a new year and a new semester.
