Bless this house

“Bless this house, for we are all together. Bless us all, we may not meet again.”

If you and I are friends, there is no reason for you to read this column. Actually, if you’ve only met me in passing, you can move on, too.

Can disaffiliated Greek life save itself?

As the fall 2018 Greek life rush continues across campus, disaffiliated fraternities and their relationships with incoming students are left in an uncertain purgatory. Fraternities officially affiliated with the University of Michigan operate under a well-defined framework of rules. They’re geared to further focus on charitable work, inclusion and academic performance. Even the signing of bids for students chosen fraternities is administered through Interfraternity Council personnel.

The drinking water of the Great Lakes State is, once again, in danger. While the citizens of Flint are still combating the presence of lead in their water, another lesser known chemical, PFAS also  threatens the purity of Michigan’s most abundant natural resource.

Why believing women matter

I watched psychologist Christine Blasey Ford testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in awe of her courage, patriotism, sacrifice, trauma and tragedy. Of all the things said and done throughout the two days of proceedings, one thing struck me most of all: She was 15 when Brett Kavanaugh locked her in a room and assaulted her, covering her mouth so she could not scream for help.
