Here's a look back at some of my favorite opinions, humorous and serious.
26 January 2009Cause For Caution
Unlike other groups who are gradually being accepted and incorporated into American culture — homosexuals and religious minorities — atheists exist as a boundary marker: the definition of what America is not. (I'm pretty sure Tucker started organizing a humanist society after this one).
24 November 2008Summer School
Our country, given its racial (or arguably, racist) history did an amazing thing on November 4, but we must not lose sight of what actually happened. It chose a black man as one of two candidates, the other being a straw man for the most hated president in American polling history.
27 June 2008Booting the Bill
Many see Hanover’s remoteness as a curse. But by being “trapped inside,” as it were, students are forced to come into more contact with each other, live similar lives, share some of the same joys, pains and aspirations and forge the strong connections to Dartmouth and each other that define what the College is all about. (My theory for Dartmouth's greatness)
4 December 2007Dartmouth’s Mascot Void
This systemic policy of punishing a group for the transgressions of a select few individuals is not an effective policy and directly goes against Dartmouth’s egalitarian principles. (See how many synonyms I use for "vomit")

How much longer are we willing to be the only Ivy League school that has no idea exactly who we are cheering? (The foundational argument of the Moose mascot campaign).
