God bless you, Mr. Vonnegut

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute freshman Thea Condaxis read “Slaughterhouse Five” this semester after receiving the book as a birthday present.

Meeting the yeti on Disney's Everest coaster

ORLANDO – Since the highly anticipated opening last spring of the Expedition Everest rollercoaster, Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park has been attracting a wider variety of visitors, and now thrill-seekers are among them. Lent is almost over, and for a semi-practicing Roman Catholic, that should mean something. It should symbolize growth or change; sacrifice and resolution.

Blacksburg, Va. teens recall day of horror at Va. Tech campus

The sober truth about getting really drunk

My father told me one Sunday morning that he’s never gotten drunk in his life. I wondered if he, like I had, ever wondered what it was like.

This was the morning after – the morning after I had become enthralled by the shimmer of free tequila under black light. I’m underage, but we all are when it comes down to it and everyone knows it.

Holding a screwdriver in one hand and a rum and coke in the other is so much more fulfilling when you know it’s technically illegal. There’s a certain appeal to doing things we know we’d get in trouble for. The trick is not to get caught.

I’m not very good at tricks.
