Column: Peter Tosh was right

 An important component of any bill that legalizes marijuana, however, should be the release of all prisoners held on marijuana-related charges, as well as some compensation for their legal persecution. Ending a long-standing tool of systemic oppression is not enough; we will also have to undo the damage that this oppression created.

Column: Is age just a number?

One of the most notable of these civil rights movements has been the transgender movement. Their success has been nearly unprecedented in political and cultural history. The rapidity at which they have succeeded at achieving recognition has been remarkable, especially when you consider that movements who represent larger portions of the population have taken much longer to achieve their goals.

Column: In defense of Broward County

Our reputation has taken a bit of a hit these past few weeks. The way our officials handle elections in a county of almost 2 million people is, quite frankly, an embarrassment, and we need a vast overhaul of our system.  But remember, we could always be North Florida.

Column: Thank you, Mark McCombs

"I signed up for Math 118 expecting a semester of half-assed work and deathly boring lectures. Professor Mark McCombs, our fearless Math 118 leader, totally, completely subverted my expectations."

Column: Hope after midterms

They have bright political futures ahead of them, and as their supporters, it serves us best to know they aren’t going anywhere.  Neither is our fight to make America a better, safer place for everyone.
