Joe Hart took the words right out of my enlightened mouth

Josh Veazey August 20, 2010

An open etter from James Madison, Founding Father: Joe Hart knows exactly how I think the Constitution should apply two-hundred years after my death. Obviously, health insurance mandates do not count...

Allow me to be glib one last time

Josh Veazey April 13, 2010

I’ve always found “farewell” columns odd, like a graduation speech in front of confused, moderately interested people. Or maybe like having one of those lingering, awkward hugs with your readership....

The Catholic Church is complicit in sex abuse

Josh Veazey April 6, 2010

Last week, The Crimson White editorial board printed an opinion that seemed so straightforward as to be impossible to argue against. The Catholic Church, they pointed out, seems to value affiliation over...

Nothing is Like ‘1984’

Josh Veazey March 30, 2010

The year America spent in health care fear and loathing proved once again that our country is perfectly capable of having a spirited, complex, even ostensibly polite debate about a controversial issue...

Allow me to rain on the health care parade

Josh Veazey March 23, 2010

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will solve our country’s health care problems inasmuch as throwing money at problems solves problems. It is “historic” in the sense that it does more...

Josh Veazey February 24, 2010

The tackiest aspect of cable news is when, lacking anything of substance to report to us, they decide to take us “inside politics.” They invite veteran political strategists (who may or may not have...

A literary review of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Josh Veazey February 17, 2010

The “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit issue is porn. It’s glossy, thematic, well-produced, light-of-day, cleverly self-referencing porn, but that doesn’t alter the fact that it’s porn. It passes...

Palin, Tea Partiers narrative misleading

Josh Veazey February 10, 2010

At fist glance, Tea Party participants seem like perfect vessels to the past. A sea of gray hair, jean shorts, long socks, flannel and unironic trucker hats, they march to the tune of Lee Greenwood’s...

‘Our View’ on McGwire pointless

Josh Veazey January 20, 2010

Answer true or false for the following statements: I have a right to regulate what an athlete puts in their own body. My values and my understanding of what is good for an athlete are superior to those...

Security shouldn’t be only concern

Josh Veazey January 13, 2010

How far are we willing to go to stop terrorism? If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the last presidency, it’s that we can’t simply hand the government a blank check. That sentiment is no less...
