Nic: Devouring greasy fast food is practically an American tradition, and when it comes to selecting concessions, there is no place better than the root of coronary heart disease itself: Taco Bell. You see, the American ...

Hot Dogs vs. Hamburgers

Grace Cloherty and Gaby Perez

February 10, 2017

Filed under Opinion, Point/Counterpoint

Grace: Hot dogs are the future. They are efficient and, of course, tasty. You just carry this small tube of deliciousness around. Also, you could put an endless variety of toppings on it. The fact that it’s smaller an...

‘The Simpsons’ vs. ‘Family Guy’

Nic Baggetto and Danny Kummer

February 10, 2017

Filed under Opinion, Point/Counterpoint

Stephanie Tingas and Naomi Wiley

January 9, 2017

November 11, 2016

Filed under Opinion, Point/Counterpoint

Skittles vs. M&M’s

Jade Lewis and Elise Stornello

November 11, 2016

Filed under Opinion, Point/Counterpoint

Jade: Skittles are better than M&M’s in many ways. One way is that Skittles don’t melt as easily as M&M’s. They stay the same through the whole day. You can put them in your pocket without having an anxiety attack....

November 11, 2016

Filed under Opinion, Point/Counterpoint

Nic: Which multi-national, endless sequel churning animation conglomerate would I rather have shoved down my throat until I die (or until diminishing box office returns)? Easy! Disney! Oh. That’s not an option? Easy! Pixar!...
