Toughing it out through wintry conditions

Hearing and watching coverage about the devastation in Atlanta and other areas of the South from this past week creates a certain pride for those residing in the Northeast. No, General Sherman has not risen from his grave to march again through Georgia toward the sea, leaving a path of destruction and fire behind him. […]

When my computer broke, I was told to use any one of the public computers available. There was one problem: All of them were Macs, and I own a PC. I never intended to transfer to a Mac, so I did not. But why did it seem like I had to? Brandeis technology operates under […]


Bananas; true source of original sin

When I heard that I could write an article about bananas, I was surprised, to say the least. But I knew that I must accept this challenge; I knew that the truth had to be known. You may not know it, but it was actually a banana that Adam and Eve ate from the Garden […]
