Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed on Saturday as the 114th Supreme Court justice. Kavanaugh’s confirmation is more than just a f-ck you to Democrats. To myself and many other survivors of sexual violence, the Kavanaugh confirmation is the answer to a question we have been wrestling with for years: Would...

Wealth distribution is one of the most divisive topics in our country. It seems as if socialism and capitalism are always the center of political debate. In a more progressive era of the U.S., free-market capitalism has been given an unfair reputation, especially among youth. Fifty-one percent of...

Mutual attraction is a memorable and irreplaceable experience, especially the first time it happens. The feeling is special, but some never experience it. While missing out on dating a crush is disappointing, no one should feel entitled to another person’s time and feelings. There is a group out...

Life in Pullman starts in August with move-in and syllabus week. All available dumpsters are crammed full.

Let’s face it, legal weed is great for Washington. People can smoke it in a blunt or hit from a bowl, bake with it and get baked on it. Fun for all ages at or above the legal limit. Washington income in 2017 from marijuana sales was $315 million, and half of this collection was put to funding...
