America’s fighting the wrong war and the wrong terror. In Darfur, Sudan, almost half a million innocent people have been murdered in less time than the Iraqi conflict has been making headlines.

Flight risk or fearless leader?

Betrayed. That’s how I felt when I first found out that Daniel Castro, president here at Riverside City College, had applied for the presidency at Long Beach City College. Later, when the news came that Castro did not get the job at LBCC, it seemed as though RCC was his fall back.

Rangel’s mission for conscription:

Like being told that you have one month to live, getting the news that you have been drafted is a life altering shock that no one wants or expects.
