I've been thinking a lot lately about how I see men treating women in different situations, groups, settings and so on in my day-to-day life. And so I'll set out to briefly express how I feel men should treat women. I'll first start by saying that there is no simple code on how men should treat wom...

Around June of next year, the U.S. Supreme Court may find itself embroiled in the presidential election, or maybe not. On Nov. 14 the Supreme Court agreed to hear two cases involving a variety of constitutional challenges to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which went into effect in March 2010...

On the Sunday after Thanksgiving, the first Sunday of Advent, I attended Mass with my family at our parish in Lake Charles, La. Since it was the first Sunday of the liturgical year, it was the first time the new Mass translation was used in a full ordinary Mass at my church. The results, in my opinio...

The fall semester is soon coming to a close, but before it does there's lots of preparation that must take place. Finals will be here before we know it. So, what's a tired, overwhelmed and anxious student to do in preparation for the big week? My guess is to crack open the books now and study every da...

As Loyola begins to reach its ideal ratio of tenure and tenure-track faculty to non-tenure track, the time is ripe for students to evaluate just where they fit into the tenure equation. Though teachers of all levels can, and regularly do, have tenure, the institution was first developed to protect pr...

Letters to the Editor: Koch donation raises questions

November 29, 2011


Filed under Features, Letters to Editor, Opinions

Dear editor, I welcome David Holmes' call to move beyond "petty partisan politics," and I raise a critical concern about his moral claim that the "school would be irresponsible to refuse money legitimately earned and freely given" from a Nazi "without the odious stipulations" of preaching Holocaust...

Every year on Dec. 1, individuals around the globe observe World AIDS Day in an effort to spread awareness of HIV/AIDS and its life-altering effect on millions. In New Orleans, where the virus is especially prevalent, the day's message reminds us that the disease affects even those closest to home. Among large Ame...

My academic work has been in the field of bioethics and health policy. The United States is a nation that celebrates diversity: diversity of race, gender, professions, geography and moral views. Moral diversity is part of the practice of contemporary medicine. Health care is a cooperative endeavor, as it requi...

Letters to the Editor: Group’s mistakes should not reflect on Sunday Cooks

November 29, 2011


Filed under Letters to Editor, Opinions

Dear editor, I am writing to explain some details that were inaccurate and some that were not mentioned in "Sunday Cooks return competition money." This is in no way a criticism of the journalist's work on the article; every quotation attributed to me is accurate. The three founding members of The S...

Programming seems to be one thing Loyola does a lot of. I see flyers for one event or another almost every night of the week and weekend. It makes me happy that so many organizations and departments around campus have such a focus on offering fun activities, learning experiences, lectures, workshops, et...

I went over to the Occupy Boston encampment on Dewey Square one day in October. The atmosphere was upbeat. Several hundred people were organized in a free-wheeling, consensus-oriented way. There was already an on-site Free University in place. The protestors were amiable. Not the type of enterprise th...

Editorial: Discussion of abortion must not be dissuaded

November 15, 2011


Filed under Editorial, Opinions

There are elements of a Jesuit education which hardly differ from any other university. Then there are those that negatively impact a portion of the student body. Loyola's decision to bar the creation of an abortion-rights club, even in the presence of Loyola Life, an anti-abortion group, is one of...
