Safe Space and Real World? August 23, 2016

If you assure the safety of the people, location does not matter. This means people take responsibility (what a concept, eh?) for themselves as a group. One could also discuss the safe space between some folks ears as no thoughts will ever occur.~

How do you define Campus Safety, Safe space?

Learning life lessons

Now, it’s true, college can be challenging, and students of color or atypical backgrounds can face hurdles that others do not. Schools should do whatever is possible to ensure all students feel supported.

But unless you plan to live on your parents’ couch forever, the idea of spaces so “safe” you hear nothing you don’t like will quickly disappear with the cap and gown. So how does this prepare students for the real world?

Dodge Charger August 23, 2016

My original headline was “The Dodge Charger Scat Pack Turned Me Into An Asshole,” but then I realize that a car can’t really change someone’s character. There already has to be an asshole buried deep within.

It’s a hard pill to swallow. I used to think I was a pretty good dude, but apparently I’ve had a sociopathic, abrasive punk hidden deep in my soul—a side of me only recently brought to light by a bright red sedan whose only aim is to cover the road in burnt rubber.

Lucille: Dancing on the Nürburgring August 22, 2016

Lucille is a 1972 Ford Country Sedan wagon with a 400ci Cleveland small-block, a three-speed automatic, three rows of blue vinyl seats, and 18 feet of pre-Malaise, Coke-bottled, hub-capped, LBJ-approved, pseudo-ironic beauty.

In 1971, it was the pride and joy of its namesake, a Lucille B. Riley of Thousand Oaks, California, who on her 55th birthday treated herself to a brand-new car. She held onto it for nearly 30 years.
