When many of us make the decision to attend college we don't think about how we are going to pay for tuition, books, housing, food, car, etc. The list of expenses seems to grow longer, especially for those who have always relied upon their parents to pay for everything. As the bills begin piling up, many students begin a desperate search for money. Roommates are usually good for a few bucks but are obviously unable to solve your financial problems.

Feb. 1's Superbowl concluded with the New England Patriots victory over the Carolina Panthers. The score of the game will not be remembered nor will the winner. Forever, the incident involving pop stars Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake will live on forever. Their sexually explicit moment left some legal ramifications. The multiple scenarios of meanings for the future of controversial music and the Superbowl itself will outline a change in the way American's sell music and use artists as sex symbols.

What is our fascination with heroes today, and what is a true American hero? Maybe it isn't right to limit this to just American heroes, that wouldn't be fair. We have heroes of different colors and from all walks of life; and they appear daily in countries from throughout the world. Heroes seem to know no boundaries and show acts that we might otherwise believe are impossible. Heroes are an immense inspiration. We have this great love affair that we need to be able to look up to someone, to fashion our lives and aspire to something that is far greater than ourselves.

Some of you may think all we do is look for dirt so we can pick on the college. That's not entirely true, as no one is safe from our wrath. Not only that, but we have commented on positive events before. We have discovered that the great things people do, while worthy of mention, are just not the type of material our readership enjoys. They want real, yellow, bordering-on-libel journalism.

To say that our education system is plagued with problems is something of an understatement. I applaud Gov. Olene Walker's fight for increased funding for our schools. Even if the state legislature refuses to concede to her proposed budget, her battle still brings to light the problems that have plagued our education system for many years.

A group of religiously and politically opinionated men ambush a group of soldiers on their way to maintain order in a country of economic importance. The balance of trade is threatened by these fanatics and the soldiers are there to quell their little rebellion. The rebels attack from hiding places that the soldiers are not trained to see nor find. The soldiers are defeated and thus retreat. The rebels fight because they disagree with the soldiers and their government politically, religiously and ideally.

Many times as college students we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed with responsibilities. Maybe you work 40 hours a week and attend eight or nine classes. Some students are married and have children who must be taken care of. Whatever the cause, it is easy to see why college can be stressful. Is it really worth all the trouble? As you look around it may seem that everyone but you is succeeding. At times like these it may seem easier to give up.

We saw the sign. Ace of Base is old enough that we can make reference to it and not be mocked publicly. BJ would like to thank the alert readers who sent the letter to the editor concerning the incident with the photographers at CEU's production of The Nutcracker. While recognizing that the issue could have been dealt with in a more cordial and professional manner, I wonder if they were just not observant or ignored the signs posted on theatre entrances notifying audience that no photography would be allowed.

Recently CEU has had several issues with parking. With the construction of the Reeves Building, students dind it difficult to find parking near their classes. Some students found it so difficult that they parked in the mud by the Reeves Building. "The school needs to pave the area where the old main building was. That would give us more parking. I even noticed some who can't find parking will park in the mud west of Reeves," states Kristina Blackburn.

Corporations have taken the pursuit of intellectual rights to the Orwellian extreme, and have cornered the market on being unoriginal. The perpetual extension of copyrights will be the downfall of media as we know it. By not allowing their creations to ever become part of public domain, they have instituted an unfair double-standard that muscles smaller media outlets out of the game. This time giant corporations have gone too far by taking sole control over what can be published or recorded.
