Nine weeks into the quarter,  and we’ve received one letter to the editor, a correction of our photo spread of the Euphrat’s “Justice for All?” exhibit. With this unfortunate fact, I can only assume that La Voz has done zero things worth criticizing or commending. We’re not a faceless co...

The Democratic Party’s donkey is a beyond senile, one-legged donkey with several incurable, fatal diseases. Yet, the pro-Sanders left, after being overruled by the party elite, loses little sleep as the blue continuously dims. While much of the youth now collectively rejects party politics, the collapse...

The DASB Senate’s election complaints process and appeals lack both fairness and due process. The senate must follow its own rules and provide a just system for addressing election complaints and punishments.

Filed under Editorial, Opinions

Texas has continued it’s habit of passing ridiculous laws that defy common sense by approving a law that would allow people, students and faculty included, to bring concealed handguns on to University of Texas campuses. This is a god-awful idea. The reasoning behind the law is if the good guys...

Filed under Editorial, Opinions

Filed under Editorial, Opinions

The proposed Baylands festival is too ambitious and will consume too much of the budget that should be used on other projects. Moreover, the arguments are getting far too personal. The initial proposal for the festival asked for $25,000 with $13,000 set aside for security costs. This budget is far...
