Primaries are an odd thing. Blanche Lincoln found herself combating organized labor in Arkansas, while Nikki Haley of South Carolina was the target of two unsubstantiated allegations of infidelity and the recipient of a racial slur. But more curious than just local idiosyncratic narratives is the general principle that underlies primaries nationally: the necessity of electing a viable candidate who also protects the party orthodoxy.
Welcome freshmen and returning classmates. Many of us are anxious to begin classes, especially after the short-lived strike scare last week, resulting from a contract dispute between the EMU American Association of University Professors and administration officials.
The man, money and motives behind the Ground Zero mosque are enough to justify moving it elsewhere.

It has been a little more than a year since General Motors emerged from bankruptcy and the $1.3 billion in second-quarter profits the automaker recently recorded has elicited jubilation from the mainstream media of the “return of Detroit.”
With GM preparing its Initial Public Offering (IPO) of stock this fall, it is worth reflecting on what has occurred.
The past year has shown that the forced bankruptcy of GM at the hands of the Obama Administration marked only the opening shots in a new offensive against the living standards of American workers.
After volunteering to write a column on the best things to do in Ypsilanti, it occurred to me perhaps an article proclaiming the Double Eagle Coney Island at 3:30 a.m.

Are too many college students in Michigan receiving Food Assistance benefits? Are college students scamming the system to get food assistance for which they don’t qualify?
Last Friday, President Obama held a rare press conference. Among the president’s long answers and defensive responses, NBC’s Chuck Todd asked a simple question focusing on the very foundation of the 2008 campaign that earned President Obama his title. The question was, “How have you changed Washington?”
President Obama answered the question by saying he had brought health care to families, fair credit card practices to borrowers, clean air and water to all Americans, tax cuts for the middle class and an overall policy for growth that has put us on the path to recovery.
Numerous fires swept through Detroit neighborhoods last Tuesday after winds knocked down more than 700 power lines. While luckily no one was killed, some 85 houses, garages and other structures were consumed in the blazes.
At colleges and universities across America, students are heading into the classroom, many for the first time. You’re taking part in a journey that will not only determine your future, but the future of this country. We know, for example, that nearly eight in ten new jobs will require workforce training or higher education by the end of this decade. And we know that in a global economy, the nation that out-educates us today will out-compete us tomorrow. In the 21st century, America’s success depends on the education our students receive.
Sometimes it’s hard to peel back the many layers of irony Stephen Colbert is currently working under and see his real intention.

Without being too bold, now would be an appropriate time to continue renovating EMU’s image by getting a different mascot.
Americans love the Constitution. We might argue what it means or try to change parts of it, but as a general rule we like it.
Despite this adoration, it seems people aren’t as familiar with the document as you might expect.
Over the summer, Michigan was passed over in the second round of the Obama administration’s “Race to the Top” initiative. Through RTT, Obama had the states compete with each other over a paltry $4 billion in federal funding for public education. The winners were those who went furthest in carrying out the administration’s education reform principles.
