No one's surprised that the Grammys this year were a complete and utter disaster, not because of the performances, but because of the Recording Academy's annual tradition of exploiting and shutting out the nation's favorite artists. Year after year, the Grammys prove their underlying biases in the industry by nominating obscure underground artists, continuously snubbing the artists that truly deserve...

Covid-19 wasn't just a tough pandemic for businesses, it also affected gun owners. Shooting ranges were shut down, but a lot of people were still itching to shoot something. Statistics from gunviolencezrchive.org show 43,534 firearm deaths in the US in 2020. Out of the statistics, I gathered that around half, 19,378, were from suicide. The remaining portion has been verified to be from causes such...

The Thing About Cancel Culture
The Thing About Cancel Culture
Krystal Orehek, Reporter • March 9, 2021

The term "cancel culture" has come a long way. I remember using it with my friends back in 2018 when discussing pop culture, but now there are grown adults using it as political fuel. The ultimate question now is whether or not cancel culture has developed into something entirely too toxic and should be canceled itself, ironically enough.

Is Stephen Curry the Best Point Guard of All Time?
Malachi Hatfield, Reporter • April 30, 2021
