  • The Necessity of Election Reform
    By Amy E. Wong
    I was too young to vote in the 2000 elections, but I still remember the impact it left on me. I was a huge supporter of Gore, and it was a huge disappointment when I heard Gore say, "For the sake of our unity as a people and the strength of our democracy, I offer my concession."

    I was reluctant to let the fight go, especially when Bush won the race by a margin of only 537 votes in Florida. I remember when we meticulously counted the votes for a full month until Dec. 12 when the Supreme Court held, in a 5-4 decision, that the Florida recount was unconstitutional.

  • Supreme Court May Have the Chance to Affirm Individuals' Rights to Bear Arms
    By Amy E. Wong
    Although the Constitution says that U.S. citizens have certain "fundamental rights," how far should the judicial system go to uphold these rights? After all, what was practical 200 years ago may seem very impractical today. Case in point: gun ownership.

    Back in the day, our founding fathers stated in the Second Amendment, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." However, since weapons can be used both to destroy and protect, Second Amendment rights must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

  • "Reflections on Imperfection" by Pedrick Lecturer
    By Amy E. Wong
    The world is riddled with imperfections. You can be among the best and the brightest but end up begging for loose change in some dark alleyway. Beyond your own efforts, success is contingent on your environment, society, and God-given attributes.

  • Critics Challenge Familial DNA Testing
    By Amy E. Wong
    What's your take on familial DNA testing?

    Here's the skinny on the controversial subject. DNA results from crime scenes often do not lead to direct matches. Some investigators analyze the DNA of near-matches to narrow down their lists of suspects, often using the DNA of perpetrators' family members as evidence in criminal trials. This practice is called familial DNA testing, and it's been drawing the ire of many critics who fear that it will lead to "Big Brother" and increased racial discrimination.

One by one, court orders brought the precious services of each to an abrupt end.

  • Woman's Crusade Against Bar Spawns Free Speech Case
    By Amy E. Wong
    Whenever I've told someone to "shut up" and he or she retorted, "It's a free country. Make me," instead of taking up the bait ("Make me!") by smacking the offender upside the head, I've always just shaken my head in utter loss. It's true. Our First Amendment allows people to say anything they want to say even if it bugs the hell out of someone else.

    One romantic evening, I began chatting up the idea of marriage with my boyfriend. He was, naturally, scared senseless.
