Editorial: House GOP's priorities misplaced

The continuing resolution currently funding the federal government is set to expire at the end of September. If it is allowed to expire, Congress will enter a battle to adopt a new budget resolution before the federal government hits its borrowing limit (the debt ceiling), which is expected to happen in mid-October. If no deal is reached, the government could either shut down or default on its debts - two economically unpalatable options.


Overton: Who cares about loitering?

I can think of a few things more intimidating than a guy holding a goofy sign who sells his own books or panhandlers asking for 75 cents, but to hear some people tell it, the assembled hordes of Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun, and Satan himself couldn't compare to 15 to 20 loiterers.


Lee: Racism separates at the UI

It's human nature to want to be accepted into a community, but for international students the University of Iowa can be a downright hostile environment. Some students choose to create a division between international and American students through ridicule and, occasionally, aggression. The anti-Asian sentiment at the UI is uncomfortable and unsettling.
