Long lines are more than a pet peeve to American voters; a functioning democracy is at stake. Not only are long lines the issue, but so are the demographics of people who typically fall victim to them: low-income, black and Latino voters.
Campaigning extensively and aggressively over the past few months, 60-year old multimillionaire David Trone has entered the race to become the Democratic nominee for Maryland's eighth Congressional District.
In a school of almost 3,000 students, with three stories and tens of hallways, it's hard to get from one end of the building to the other in eight minutes. When you add a stop at a locker to that commute, you're almost guaranteed to be late.
New Age is a movement that gained popularity in the 1970s and 1980s as an alternative approach to traditional Western methods of spirituality. In my experience and in that of some fellow Blazers, New Age spirituality can be both fun and serious.
While it might be easy for schools to reopen quickly in the northernmost tundra of Minnesota or Wisconsin, the DC metropolitan area has good reason to wait out the storm.

Blair students have differing opinions on what effect these peppy, brightly colored slogans actually have on a student's performance in the class and whether a laminated image of an athlete trying their best will suddenly bring to memory a forgotten formula midway through a semester exam.
Colleges and universities should reconsider the storm of mail that they send to students and refocus their efforts (and funding) on more tangible ways to help students see if that school is the right fit for them.
