Darts and Laurels: Nov. 22

Letter to the Editor: It's time to impeach Michael Murphy

Impeachment is a strong and often fearlessly used word, so much so that the popularity of the word on Merriam-Webster’s website jumped 3,600 percent the day House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. By all means, impeachment is a rallying cry that screams justice, accountability and the need for marginalized voices to be loud and clear in the face of adversity. It’s for these reasons that our conscience and decency as a student body force us to begin the process of impeaching  president Michael Murphy.

Darts and Laurels: Oct. 18

The air feels more crisp than usual. You look up to see a dark clouded sky framed by large pine trees and leaves rustling in the cool wind. You’re suddenly thankful you wore your hoodie and jeans. It seems like autumn is finally here. With midterms over, you have time to enjoy one of the finer things in life — pumpkin patches.
