Because this is an odd numbered year, most Northfield residents will not be voting, but there is one election for the Northfield City Council Ward 4 seat that has turned contentious in recent days.

A CUT Amongst Carls (Login Required)
There is so much wrong with Hanley’s article that it’s hard to find a starting point. His commentary is so lopsided, so unsubstantiated, so ambiguous, and so factually incorrect that it barely even deserves a response that has any semblance of clear-headedness or articulation.
Letter to the Editor (Login Required)
I was disappointed by your portrayal of the CUT in last week’s issue of the Carletonian. Yes, I happen to live with three members of the CUT senior class, so some may say that I’m a little biased in their favor, but I would like to point out a few specific issues I think any student athlete would have with your article.
Shut Up, Dude: Freedom and Censorship at Carleton (Login Required)
I have become increasingly aware of the fact that the public discourse that happens at Carleton is surprisingly intolerant of opinions that stray outside a cage of generic liberalism that we’ve created.

Editorial (Login Required)
As the epitome of a humanities student, I get a lot of negative feedback for how my major doesn’t matter and what I study doesn’t apply to “useful things in the real world.” Maybe it’s true that I can’t build a computer from scratch or brew meth in a science lab, but my major is not entirely irrelevant. Thus, I’ve compiled several instances off the top of my head that exemplify real-world applications of what I’ve learned.

They are all around us. Small and easily overlooked, but always present: the thirteen-lined ground squirrel. This little critter lives in prairies, and can be found all over the prairies of the arb.
