THE ISSUE: Until 1989, most states and the federal government had laws against burning the flag. But in two successive rulings the Supreme Court determined that it is speech completely protected by the First Amendment. Since then, Congress has passed an amendment to the Constitution five times.

If passed, by the House, Senate, and 75 percent of the states, re-elected President George W. Bush will make it law. THE VIEWPOINT: The Bill of Rights outlines our most basic American rights. It does not, however, give license to any kind of behavior.

They live in Astoria, Oregon which is a suburbia town like every other suburbia town.

Sum 41 isn’t just like any other modern punk band. Many punk bands like Green Day and NOFX have jumped on the political band-wagon, making statements about the American government as the war in Iraq grows more intense.
RCC’s homecoming festivities were ready for action, but had few people show up to enjoy them. The RCC Alumni House stood ready for guests with decorations, soda, food and prizes a few hours before the homecoming football game on Oct. 15. Yes, RCC had a homecoming game.
