People seem to take their freedoms for granted here in the
U.S., which I find both hilarious and frightening.When we speak about foreign affairs, we wave the stars and
stripes, beat our chests and proclaim to the masses we’re oozing with the kind
of freedom other countries wished they had.When it comes to domestic freedoms, the attitude seems a bit
out of place.How many stories have you heard about a person or a group
proclaiming their freedom of speech is being infringed only for you to look at
their case and agree with the silencing forces?It seems everyone has forgotten that the first amendment was
not created to protect favorable or popular speech; it was created to protect
the outliers, the unfavorable rabble-rousers and the folks who were mad as hell
and weren't going to take it anymore.The neo-Nazi offering hateful pamphlets on a street corner
has the same amount of protection as a local resident peppering his lawn with
political campaign signs.However, unless you’re from the homeowners association, not
many people will ask the government to do something about the resident and all
his awful signs.Disagreeing with or not liking what is being said has not
nor has it ever be an acceptable excuse for squashing a person’s right to speak
freely.A recent example, Northern Michigan University administrators
and The North Wind’s board of directors went full stupid and voted not to
rehire the paper’s faculty adviser or hire the only candidate for
editor-in-chief for the terrible sin of wanting to push real news.If you don’t let a newspaper pursue stories as they see fit,
be it aggressively or otherwise, you end up with non-important fluff in the
paper that could only be improved upon by offering readers a free coloring book
if they take a selfie and tweet it hashtag “readingdatnews.”The University of Michigan canceled, and then within 24
hours uncanceled, a screening of “American Sniper” after several hundred
students protested it saying it did not fit with the university’s core beliefs.The group could have easily protested at the screening to
get its message across, or encouraged other students not to go.
I was with students, emergency responders, and university officials when the Isabella County Dive Team pulled Michael Hartnett's body from the water.We stood on a line of police tape together until the sun went down, grappling with confusion, fear and the hollow numbness that comes with realizing a young man lost his life on our campus.Today's issue of Central Michigan Life brings back all of those feelings and I do not expect it to be an easy read for anyone at Central Michigan University.As the reporter covering this from the beginning I just want to say one thing to the family and friends of Michael Hartnett.
While Mount Pleasant receives considerably less snow on
average than some other Michigan cities, it still remains a difficult place to
drive for about four months out of the year.Sure, the sparkling, sticky snow is pretty to look at as it
falls outside your window at night, but what about the next morning when you
have ten minutes to get to class and forgot to brush it off your car?
It’s textbook season once again, and many of us are
reluctantly clicking on to the CMU Bookstore website to find out just what the
damage will be this semester.After seven semesters of book-buying, I would call myself an
expert necessarily, but I have developed a few habits and tricks that make
paying for my education a little less bank-breaking.Disclaimer: If you are a student in any of the medical or
hard science fields, there’s not much I can do for you.
More important than any microcosm of professional or college sports is the integrity of the institutions that house the various member teams or schools.
It’s over and done with, nothing can change it. That doesn’t mean it won’t be engrained in the minds of Lions’ fans for years to come.
My parents never taught me that if I didn’t have anything nice to say, then I shouldn’t say anything at all.
CM-Life’s editorial staff published an editorial, “What’s In A Name?”, about
CMU’s usage of the name “Chippewa.” I’d like to
answer that question with some history.
Last night, Ferguson, Mo. burned for no reason – and most certainly not in remembrance of slain teenager Michael Brown.
I was introduced to death at the early age of six. At the time, I thought my grandpa was just going to be taking a long nap.
Weeks ago, a family member of a professor walked into Pearce Hall, started an altercation with the professor in front of frightened and confused students, and proceeded to utter the words – according to Central Michigan University Police – “do I have to go get a gun and shoot everyone in the room?” CMUPD officers found the 70-year-old man within minutes outside of the building in his vehicle, searching him immediately for a weapon.
He was my friend. We marched together in the marching band of 200 people all throughout high school.
I've made it a point to vote in every election since I turned 18 years old 2006.My first vote wasn't even for the big game – the general presidential election – it was in the midterms.
Last Monday, as I sat half awake, I watched my professor rip a $1 bill in half before one of my morning classes. She explained that she used this sort of scare tactic as a way to wake us up and get us more in tuned with her lecture.
I’d like to give hugs to the members of the editorial board of this newspaper, but I also have a duty to comment on things that are misleading.
After four years of complaining about education cuts, human rights issues and access to healthcare, it’s finally time for our students to put their money where their mouths are.
It's prudent to start this off by noting that all throughout high school, I was a bit of a nerd. I never really hung out with anybody, never dated, never went to parties or anything of that nature.
I never would’ve imagined myself going to the “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” I didn’t even know anything about it.
The Nov. 4 election is approaching, and on this day, we have the opportunity to vote for or against candidates and proposals that affect us.
If there is one thing all feminists can agree upon is that men and women ought to receive equal pay for equal work.
