Adolescent Culture

"Yeah, I cunt stand it," joked a passing student yesterday about the myriad signs promoting the "cuntageous" Vagina Monologues, which opened March 4.

The first song,"Trying To Find A Balance," from the "Seven's Travels" album, typified the rest of the performance.

Sex on the hill: breakin' up

Have you noticed all the seniors are breaking up? Is it the weather? I have heard of four break-ups in the last week. When I inquired why these couples had called it quits, the answers were disconcertingly similar.
