Yesterday's Tom Toles cartoon reminded me of a guest column I'd written for the Diamondback back in August 2005, in which I said that the Democratic Party must do more than "just say no".
Speaking of the Diamondback, my second column as a staff op-ed writer ran yesterday. My editor had asked me to take a break from politics and national issues to focus on something more pertinent to campus life. I obliged, with this light-hearted piece on laundry.
Based on the mixed reactions it received, I'm inclined to agree with those who told me to "stick to politics!"
