Common sense laws promote common good

People talking on the phone during movies, angry fans spitting on baseball players and wall-to-wall graffiti are just a few of the city-life problems that New York legislation is attempting to overcome. And regardless of how people personally feel about the laws, by eliminating the small issues, New York has been able to enforce common sense

Use common sense to fix Facebook issues

We figured out a simple solution for the privacy problems popping up with Facebook and MySpace – tell students to stop being stupid. No, seriously, quit being stupid. Earlier this week, the Stater reported the Kent State athletic department may require its athletes to remove their Facebook profiles

BY JASON HALL

It’s a common belief that two heads are better than one. According to San Francisco’s Mates of State, however, two heads are also better than five. The husband-and-wife pair that makes up Mates of State are Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel. The duo have combined to create a long string of critically-acclaimed indie-rock hits, from 2000’s My Solo Project to their newest venture, Bring It Back, released last month.

Jill Carroll not the important story in Iraq

Last week, Iraqi insurgents released Jill Carroll, a freelance writer for the Christian Science Monitor, after almost three months of captivity. This is definitely newsworthy, but we shouldn’t neglect the more important story – the Iraqi insurgency. National networks have been following Carroll’s every step from the minute she was kidnapped to the moment she stepped foot in the United States.

Entertainment

Duo releases lackluster album with promise

When you think about good pop music, you don’t often think about the incorporation of an organ intertwined with husband-and-wife vocalization. However, in the case of Mates of State, this is exactly what you’ve got. On “Fraud in the ’80s,” Kori Gardner and Jason Hammell deliver one of the most annoying pop songs in recent memory.
