Roundup had regularly been used as a weed killer at the Spencer View apartment complex, managed by the University of Oregon, until residents spoke up.
In the past couple of weeks, there have been numerous stories in the news about the shift in public opinion on gun control. These current stories seem largely to do with the recent mass shooting in Colorado, followed by Presidential and Congressional candidates making no hard stance on this issue.

What really would be the matter with legalizing bud?
Food, ebooks, and Wifi coming back to their roots?
Since Facebook has been in existence, its users have certainly shared in the experience of how the social media giant has set and changed policy in such a way as to violate users’ privacy — over and over. And, as expected, the company had reacted to “public” outcry, adjusting its privacy policies and practices to retain its users.
Like I said at the beginning of winter term, I am not against advertising. I see its value, but on a tangential note, I think it has gotten out of hand in America. It’s too much.
But, I think it is uncanny how illegal immigrants who do come here complain about the working conditions they subject themselves to, are irate they are denied the same rights and privileges of U.S. and Oregon citizens — including, for example, in-state tuition.
I think the 2nd Amendment is far outdated and no longer needed. I guess you could say that we still live in uncivilized times, so to speak, if having constitutional protection to own a gun is still valid. I mean, we couldn’t be living in a civilized society in America with this amendment, could we?
Lighting up the paths and putting up fences to protect the graves seems a simple solution on a multitude of levels.
As I watch my friends post their life on Facebook and elsewhere — for example, statements about a class they’re taking or photos of drunken soirees — I wonder if they realize how that information could be used to their detriment at some point.
Saying “Drink responsibly” is not the same as having a system in laws in place that make that so.
Before the story came out in the Emerald about ASUO VP Katie Taylor and ex-OSPIRG Chair Charles Denson, there was quite a bit of discussion in the newsroom about whether to run with this story or not. I went through a lot of mental wrangling before I reached the conclusion that I am happy that it did run.
What if in reality the University’s athletic department was self-sufficient? I mean, we hear it all the time that they are, but the numbers and facts just don’t add up. But aside from that, what if it became a reality?
If taken out of the hands of the Emerald and placed independently online by me, what I write in this weekly column would be exactly that: a blog. Were I to take what I wrote in my blog and printed it for simple distribution by me, it would perhaps become labelled a pamphlet and fall within Oregon’s medium of communication definition. As such, I would then be protected by the state’s shield law.
It is rather ironic that advertising and public relations are being taught in the University’s School of Journalism and Communication. It’s almost as if we are feeding the beast while it remains part of the “communication” branch of the school.
