VSG stands for students, freedom on smoking ban

I was glad to see this story on Inside Vandy about Vanderbilt Student Government’s stand against a smoking ban on campus: The Vanderbilt Student Government Senate unanimously passed a resolution regarding smoking regulations on campus Wednesday night in response to recent actions taken to make Vanderbilt smoke free. Executive Adviser Theo Samets, along with Senator [...]

Vandy freshman supports concealed carry

From InsideVandy.com. Erik Soderstrom has a nice letter that dovetails with my Hustler editorial from last semester on the subject. Here’s Soderstrom: The recent gunpoint robbery of another Vanderbilt student highlights the failed logic of “gun-free” zones. The current campus-wide firearms ban doesn’t keep students safe. Instead, it needlessly puts us at greater risk of [...]

Links are a blogger's best friend

I’m coming off a great weekend in DC preparing for my internship this summer. Here are some links for your post-Palm Sunday, first Monday in April morning.

Brooks: Scratch that, Obama rules

David Brooks, the New York Times’ idea of a sensible conservative voice, had a great op-ed (by his standards) Monday. It was unpredictably critical of Barack Obama, mainly for his administration’s massive spending. It looked as if Brooks couldn’t believe in the change.  Then he rolls out today’s op-ed, prostrating himself before the Almighty Obama by letting [...]

Vanderbilt Fashion Quarterly off to less than stellar start

InsideVandy.com reports on a new fashion magazine hitting the stands launching online to “bring Vandy fashion” or something like that. After transferring from Sarah Lawrence College and immersing herself in Vandy culture by getting involved in many campus activities such as GlamourGals and Fashion for a Cause, Junge said she found there was no medium [...]

Patriotism renewed

Here’s my op-ed from tomorrow’s Hustler on InsideVandy.com. I wrote this Tuesday evening, after the inauguration. I’ve got so many problems with Obama and his plans for America (echoing Rush Limbaugh — check out his Hannity interview), but I really glad the bad-mouthing of America and our troops will most likely be toned down without [...]
