Red Scare

They move around, barely visible to the naked eye. In silence, they attack their victims and leave us in agonizing pain when all we want to do is get to class. No, not terrorists. We're talking about the newest sadistic wave taking over Gainesville.

If you're addicted to caffeine - like so many college students are - you've probably noticed that soft drinks cost more on campus than they did last year. But did you notice that water, fruit drinks, Gatorade and Starbucks beverages' prices stayed the same?

Darts all around

We're mad. We have too much homework and too little sleep. Too few beers and too little money. Not enough clothing and not enough laundry money. We're pissed, and we're not afraid to say it.

Students expect hard work from senators

Our Student Senate is finally getting back to work. We can?t blame them for taking it easy over the break. It was summer, after all, and nothing is more tempting than a cool pool and an icy drink. We wouldn?t want to be cooped up in the Reitz Union while all our friends played Frisbee on the beach.
