Post Column: US debt includes too many wasteful costs

The debt clock should have one of those seizure warning thingies that are shown at the beginning of video games. There are so many flashy numbers with so many important things to say. I’m sure that, somewhere out there, a Nobel-worthy economist sees the next global market crisis through the gazillion changing digits.

Post Column: Fishing rewards anglers with intrinsic value

Smelling the fresh Folgers, tying on your favorite crankbait, loading up the gear and heading to the lake, headlights aglow — mornings preluding a fishing trip on the outside might look ever so shallow, but to the fisherman, there is intrinsic nature to the routine.

Post Column: Razz Wheat a versatile choice for fruit lovers

Today, we are going to talk about a beer that is quintessentially Athens. Not only is it brewed at everyone’s favorite Midwestern brewpub, Jackie O’s, but it is their No. 1 beer. On a busy night, Jackie O’s can and will sell literally kegs of this stuff. On a great night, they sometimes run out.

Post Column: New Razer tablet could be worth hefty price tag

Nerds like me know that Razer, a popular video game accessory company, does not mess around. If you aren’t familiar, just know that it is a powerhouse and its products are gorgeous pieces of technology. At the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, it unveiled its newest project: the Razer Edge gaming tablet. It gained attention from gamers everywhere and swept up the Best of CES Award (I would give it an award too, but I’m not quite as powerful).

Post Column: Video-game violence obviously the country's biggest threat

Folks, I know this is a humor column, but I want to take this time to talk to you about a serious subject. You’re all aware of the tragedy that happened during winter break: the senseless, horrific murder of 27 innocent people, including 20 children, in Newtown, Conn. Some humorists believe that it’s never too soon to joke about any subject, but I believe that if anything in this world is untouchable, the mass murder of schoolchildren has got to be it. There’s nothing funny about what happened in Sandy Hook, and I’m not going to pretend otherwise.

Post Column: Nightmare ride the last straw for Greyhound

There’s some presumably dead wise person who said we learn from our mistakes. Usually this is true, because I’m pretty sure none of Taylor Swift’s exes have been her ex more than once. However, there are a few of us that contradict that adage, and I am one of them.

Post Column: NHL's short, tight schedule is bad for players

The ending of the 2012 season was bittersweet for National Hockey League fans throughout the country. At that time, fans waited in excitement for the playoffs, yet they also worried as the NHL’s labor dispute was not far behind. The dispute officially began Sept. 15 at 11:59 p.m. EDT, marking the second lockout in the last eight years.

Post Column: Gamer Girl: Video-game marketing pigeonholes women

It’s hard out here for a girl gamer. You walk into a Game Stop perusing for yourself and are instantly ogled like the rarest Pokémon. Yes, boys, some girls do like to play video games. We want to be badass superheroes and villains, too. We want to wield the weapons you can. We especially want to kick your butt in your favorite game when we can. And sometimes we even like to play Madden.

Post Column: Extra Point: NCAA bowl system has problems playoffs won't solve

In recent years, the absence of a playoff system in college football has generated controversy from analysts and sports fans throughout the country. People felt that smaller programs such as Boise State or Northern Illinois were not being given the recognition that their almost blemish-free records had indicated. To put it simply, schools like those have no chance in a national championship because they do not fall under the category of a “big-name program.”
