‘Tis the seasonal depression

​Oh, the weather outside is… eh, who cares? ​After sharing gratitude for loved ones over turkey carcasses and Aunt Carol’s drunken political rants, Americans rejoice over super discounts to combat their economical struggles.

Can we get supervision for a 71 year old?

I swore I’d stop with the political jabs at the president. But in the spirit of the holidays, old habits die hard. Supervision for a 71-year-old sounds like a bad joke I’d tell my grandfather after his seventh glass of wine. For our president, it seems more and more like a necessity. Twitter is an…

Twilight of Net Neutrality affects us all

A la carte. It’s good in a food court and a cable package. Imagine Internet service where websites were bundled and offered in packages. For instance, if you wanted to access social media, you may have to pay an additional $5.99 per month for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. The sinister part is that Internet Service…

How I, President Donald J. Trump, spent my summer

This summer has gone really well for me. Between a once in a 500 year flood in Texas, the tough talk with North Korea and John McCain letting me down on healthcare, it’s all going well. And let’s not forget the rallies. Let me tell you that one in Phoenix was a real barn-burner. We…

Letter From the Editor

For two semesters, I have comfortably sat at the head desk of the cozy CC-140 office. I remember the day my adviser, professor Robert Hays, asked me to come into his office. I worried that I may have done something wrong, but I was asked to be editor of the Commuter and I had a…

Driving Without Brakes

Driving without brakes is akin to when one goes to reach for the parachute during skydiving and finds that it failed. This happened to me three weeks ago. I had a 2000 Subaru Forester with 206,000 miles, and had gone cross country with me, and lasted close to two years. Backing out of the overflow…
