Comment on St. Thomas football ‘ready for the challenge’ ahead of Texas quarterfinal by Hank Mayes

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 17:49:45 +0000

I have been a member of UMHBs chain crew for 13 years now. I just want to congratulate St. Thomas on an amazing year. The main thing I want to say how impressed I was with the players and coaching staff. Never before in those 13 years have I experienced the talent, gamesmanship, and sportsmanship on the visiting teams sideline. Even in defeat, the coaching staff and players revealed what any sport should teach......respect!! St. Thomas, you should stand proud!!

Setting up your O-lineman to score a vanity touchdown when you are up 92-0? Bush league.



Comment on OPINION: NFL protests are too ambiguous by stephen weber

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 11:35:49 +0000

It is easy for people to say that during the national anthem, "Protesting is disrespectful". And in truth if you never saw a game or anything, it is probably true, and depending on the level of protest it might be illegal. So that word "protest" is called spin. If you say, "kneeling is disrespectful", it is necessary for the opposition to argue some thought police argument to say this is truth. They are just kneeling, not screaming for justice over the anthem. But another sentence is even closer, because some people seem to feel that the word kneeling is akin to submission. Let us spread the truth. They are genuflecting. GENUFLECTING- "lower one's body briefly by bending one knee to the ground, typically in worship or as a sign of respect." Then we would be at the truth, and only one person would be able to continue arguing that Genuflecting is disrespectful, that of course is our Emperor without Clothes.



Comment on OPINION: St. Thomas taxi would reduce drunk driving by Sandy Golden

Bars are taking advantage of students and putting their lives at risk. Students who are 21 years of age have a right drink alcohol, but when they drink too much they put their lives in danger and the lives of the innocent public. They can destroy their future and the lives of others. Not right! Bars break the law when they keep selling and serving alcohol to obviously intoxicated students. If students want to stop drunk driving then please check out www.concernedangels.org. If any student leader wants to seriously address this issue then contact me. I'm the CEO of Concerned Angels. My email address is on our website. We do not solicit or accept donations. Our only concern is saving lives. Sandy Golden CEO/President Concerned Angels

Public Safety picks people up within six blocks of campus. I wonder how many people actually utilize that.

Does this guy know that Public Safety will give you a safe ride? Probably should at least address that in the piece.

Comment on OPINION: Guns on campus compromise safety by Paul H. '16

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 15:12:35 +0000

Well said, Keith. A criminal who plans on committing a crime doesn't care about gun-free zone laws. Case in point: there was an armed robbery just feet from South Campus, at the World War I monument on Summit and Mississippi River Blvd, this past weekend. The criminal could have easily done the same act on-campus. Being gun-free doesn't prevent crime. In 2015, an attempted robbery happened in the same place, and it ended with the would-be robber being shot by a legally carrying private citizen, the victim of the robbery. Additionally, just this past month there was the shooting at the Christian community in Tennessee. Who stopped the shooter? A person who retrieved his legally owned firearm from his vehicle in the parking lot. He may have been able to stop the shooting sooner had he been carrying it on his person. If a gunman knows that he can walk into an elementary school completely unopposed, he's gonna do that over walking into a school where there might be a chance that teachers are concealing. There can certainly be an argument made that college students can be incredibly irresponsible - case-in-point, the student who negligently discharged his firearm in Flynn Hall this past spring, violating several fundamental rules of gun safety. However, the argument that being gun-free prevents mass-shootings, or violence in general, is hogwash. There's no good solution to his issue, but this article doesn't present a particularly good argument.
