Post Column: Chaotic world politics foreign to Americans

As hard as it might be to imagine as a resident of the United States, political instability is still commonplace on our planet. And by political instability, I don’t mean figures like Michele Bachmann claiming that Obama’s Affordable Care Act “literally kills” innocents; I mean coups.

Post Column: High Fest was (probably) a party to remember

Boy howdy, what an exciting weekend this was! As per The Post’s longstanding tradition of addressing only the most important campus events, I’ve been asked by my editors to describe the events of High Fest for our loyal readers. There is, of course, one problem with that plan, namely the fact that I didn’t actually attend High Fest and am still not entirely sure what a “fest” is.

In The News: For teenagers, music is a way to be understood

My Chemical Romance broke up during the weekend. For my generation, the generation that was in middle school during the band’s peak, this is (sort of) a tragedy. At least for the kids who did not have inch-thick blonde streaks, Aéropostale T-shirts or friends.

Tough Love: TV trial was wrong venue for minors' rape case

The Steubenville rape case has drawn national attention for the many issues it has forced us to (uncomfortably) explore, including the cultural idolization of football, social-media public perception, and the acceptability of egregious teenage behavior and gender roles, among others.

Between the Lines: Disaster strikes on first day of March Madness

I’ve heard the phrase “bracket buster” for years, but it’s always flown over my head, along with terms of equally small importance to me: Carnivore. Pumpkin. Beer. Sense of direction. Tournaments. Who cares? I don’t have any interest in that stuff.

Post Column: Last entry in annual series a must-buy brew

For more than a decade, Stone Brewing Company has been giving the world an annual gift. On Feb. 2, 2002, they released the first beer in a series — Vertical Epic 2. Every year since, they’ve released a new Epic, but exactly one year, one month, and one day later. The Vertical Epic is now number 11, and unfortunately that’s the end of the series. To commemorate, we’ll be reviewing the Vertical Epic 12, released Dec. 12, 2012. The craft-beer industry is built on the bedrock of novelties and puns, so the Vertical Epic 12 is sure to be a beer of epic proportions. It’s a beer so good it can give you vertigo. Or at least that’s what we’ve heard.

Post Column: Happy Trails: Break out of your rut: snuggle with puppies

I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately, feeling under the weather, constantly stress-eating and consistently Googling such search terms as “are hummus and Wheat Thins bad for you?” while shoveling them in my mouth at an alarming rate and contemplating the fact that I’ve never stepped foot in Ping in my two years on this campus (I’m not kidding).

Post Column: Shifting Tides: Accepting uncertainty is a fulfilling change

Someone once intelligently observed, “People don’t change, they just become who they are really meant to be.” Half of March is gone from the calendar and the air of summer is sweeping through my veins. I become dumbfounded when I think of my first days in Athens at a very young 18, filled with negativity at a life I had to part with and accepting the one I wasn’t in the mood to begin.

Postmortem: Too much depends on arbitrary age milestones

There are several important facets of law and order that we cherish dearly in America, like the plan of our nation’s founders that, regardless of vast shifts in societal norms and political culture over hundreds of years, is still completely relevant. We also hold true that communism is bad, democracy is good and the most effective way to deter crime and maintain a healthy society is to assign random ages of legality to various life activities.

Post Column: Pope Francis has some new competition

For those of you who haven’t been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, we’ve got a new pope! If you have been living under a rock, seek help, because that’s not normal behavior, and you’ve probably got a disease.
