Haas’ last word: politics need respect

This will be my 54th and last column. In two years of writing, I’ve covered numerous policies, frequent congressional failures and rare congressional successes.

USC debate team takes on UCLA at Saturday event

USC faced off against UCLA Friday and Saturday night in two parliamentary-style debates, which covered the war in Syria and U.S. immigration policy.

His early endorsements include every registered Democrat in the United States. His early detractors should include every Republican who hopes their party can make a credible case for the White House. And yet, the media […]


To resolve apathy, focus on results

It is exceedingly difficult to get most people in my generation, the millennials, to care about politics. What isn’t difficult is getting us to care about results. Bridging the gap between the process of politics, which doesn’t interest us, and the outcome, which does, holds the key to voter apathy, particularly among the young folks […]
