Editorial: Shutdown puts WIC at risk

As the U.S. Government shut down enters its second week, not much seems to have changed for most Americans. The postal service is still running, and other essential functions will not be halted.

Beall: Eliminate Native American mascots

The NHL season is upon us which means Iowa City is filled again with a plethora of Chicago Blackhawks jerseys. Team spirit is fine, but another Blackhawks season raises the same old question again: why are these and other uses of Native Americans as mascots socially acceptable?


Ponnada: Sexism isn't funny

I was talking to my best friend last night about how messy my room was a week ago and she says to me, "You need to learn to cook and clean or you'll never find a good man." Neither of us actually thinks that women should subscribe to such ridiculous prescribed gender roles, so, I thought what she said was pretty hilarious.
