In the midst of the tragic transition from the ease of syllabus week to the reality of sleepless nights binge cramming in the library, it can be extremely trying on one’s psyche. I’ve begun to notice that everyone seems to identify with various different coping mechanisms. Some might go the route...

Over the years the comic book/sci-fi genre has changed from character names to ethnicity.  Some of these changes have been welcomed with open arms while others have created great controversy.  As a fan, I am usually open to changes to certain characters.  I do have trouble when comic book writer...

Simply put, I love my city. But, San Antonio is far from simple.  To generalize my gratitude for this beautiful place to a mere cliché found in bold print on your typical tourist T-shirt would be doing my hometown a serious injustice. To me, San Antonio is a facilitator of culture, a haven to be diffe...
