Postseason football injuries need attention

The story of a football game doesn’t end with a mark in the win/lose column. The story ends 30 years later, when a victorious receiver’s life takes a hypothetical turn for the worse.

In America, sharing files is a criminal act. In Sweden, the practice is now a religious experience. Last month, Sweden officially recognized The Missionary Church of Kopimism. The religion sees all information as sacred; thus, file-sharing is a holy act. The founder, Isak Gerson, hopes Kopimism’s followers will one day have the freedom to transmit […]


For Trousdale’s sake, take biking seriously

Following Wednesday’s Bike Summit and DPS Safety Fair, a group of LAPD officers on bikes happened to be predatorially perched on Jefferson Boulevard and McClintock Avenue, ready to cite law-despising cyclists. While it might not be right for officers to prey on bicyclists, it’s also not right for bicyclists to completely ignore standards of etiquette […]
