Brett is a sophomore studying Political Science, French and History as a member of the LSA Honors Program and the Residential College. This is his second semester writing for the opinion section, and he looks forward to exploring the possibility of becoming even more opinionated than he already is. An avid political junkie and sports fan, he can most often be found quoting the West Wing to no one in particular or explaining why his New York Mets will be winning the World Series next year. Originally from the great Garden State, he longs for a decent slice of pizza or an acceptable bagel somewhere in the Midwest.
