Generally my Porsche of a column in this Pinto of a newspaper is supposed to be the “movie column” or the “column we throw out first when there’s not enough space,” but the first few months of the year are a notoriously crappy time for movies, and I’m pretty much just marking time until “The Hunger Games” anyway, so this week instead of movies I’m going to tell you which TV shows you should be watching, and we’ll get back to movies next week when “The Hunger Games” is finally released and, Jesus Christ, this is the longest sentence ever. Anyway, to my soapbox!

After seven years of battling pancreatic cancer, Steve Jobs has died at age 56, leaving behind a legacy of technological innovation and imagination for generations to come.
Fans and followers are mourning the passing of the Apple visionary and founder of one of the most successful businesses in the world with memorials and testimonies, often created with devices that Jobs invented.

Last week, Brigham Young University (BYU) basketball star Brandon Davies was suspended from the Cougars basketball team for violating the university’s honor code.

Last week, Brigham Young University (BYU) basketball star Brandon Davies was suspended from the Cougars basketball team for violating the university’s honor code.

After seeing what rule he broke (to me, it seemed ridiculous that the nation’s third-ranked team dismissed its third leading scorer and leading rebounder for violating it), I decided to research the BYU honor code and see what other rules that thousands of college athletes surely break every season.

I hope you don’t mind me hiding under the covers of this newspaper — it’s been some time since my last confession, and after comparing my life to the Honor Code described in this column, I’m afraid I sin like a champion.

Dear readers, thanks for making time for me today.

I hope you don’t mind me hiding under the covers of this newspaper — it’s been some time since my last confession, and after comparing my life to the Honor Code described in this column, I’m afraid I sin like a champion.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported last Wednesday that BYU center Brian Davies had been dismissed from the team after he admitted to having violated the BYU “Honor Code.”

As a previous Ole Miss Idol contestant and experienced singer, I attended the Ole Miss Idol competition yesterday evening to be entertained and to cheer on many talented singers. I know how nerve-wracking it can be to get up on stage, sing your heart out and pray you will hit that high note at the end.

Letter to the Editor:

I was dismayed, but not surprised that Andrew Dickson did not bother to research his arguments against the biblical stance concerning homosexuality. ‘In his Friday column he says “Jesus Christ himself never spoke a word about homosexuality when delivering the law – not even once.”

I’ve been musing over a nice way to say this for some time, and the best solution I came up with is to simply explain myself.

As I sat at one of the communal desks in the Student Media Center to write this column, I popped open my to-go box from the JC (no, not Jesus Christ, but the place formerly known as the Johnson Commons).
