Somewhere, hidden in that closet at the end of the hall, America’s got a nasty skeleton tucked away—the kind of dark secret most of us don’t wish to bring up in conversation. But, as citizens of our dearly beloved nation, we’re more than just entitled to know the whole truth.The eugenic movem...

Equality is in the salary

Michelle Chan | Evergreen Columnist

December 4, 2013

The first step toward equality comes from society and from within the work place.With more women entering male dominated fields, the gap between the genders is gradually narrowing. However, we’re not out of the woods quite yet.Women are kept as social prisoners, tucked away within the domestic spher...

Trash-talk is immature

December 2, 2013

Editor:I found Beau Baily's opinion piece on the Cougar-Husky rivalry childish and unprofessional. While the rivalry can be fun and promotes school spirit on both sides, talking poorly of another university in our school paper is simply immature. Smack-talking the Huskies makes us look like we don't ...

WSU not for the entitled

December 2, 2013

Editor:Beau Baily’s “Why we fight” was a good column. I attended both schools, ultimately graduating from Wazzu because I was not a child of privilege. I was just a military vet cashing in his G.I. bill on a top tier education. The stigma of entitlement doesn't fly with us hard-working alums. Go Co...

Why we fight

Why we fight

Beau Baily | Evergreen Columnist

November 22, 2013

Everywhere I go, naïve patrons ask me why the Cougars hate the Huskies.People ask me why I find myself seconds from driving off a cliff after an Apple Cup loss and why I get so much satisfaction from victories.The answer is much more complex than one would think. Some rivalries begin and end with a football game. Th...

Blame the insurance companies, not Obama

November 22, 2013

Editor:I was angered by Ashley Lynn Fisher’s article on Obamacare that basically just repeated Fox News or The Blaze’s rhetoric. I feel that insurance companies should be the ones taking the blame for the canceled policies, not the president.  They were the ones who knowingly sold healthcare plans ...

Evergreen, show off the Cougar research

November 22, 2013

Editor:WSU is, first and foremost, a research university, but you wouldn't know that from reading The Daily Evergreen.  There are many things in college life that The Daily Evergreen contributors feel compelled to cover, but the university's main reason for existence doesn't seem to be among them. I rarely ...

Stay for the Utah game, clinch the bowl

November 22, 2013

Editor:You all seriously need to think about staying for the football game this Saturday. The game starts at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, so you could be on the road home around 4:30 or 5 p.m., which is only 24 hours later than if you leave on Friday. It’s 24 more hours with your Cougar family. Should w...
