As Rutgers embarks on its "do not ask, do not tell" week of trouble-making, mischief and potentially poor decision making, I cannot help but think about how significant the concept of spring break has become to our age demographic.

Coal is apparently the nonrenewable resource that is the future of our energy, as stated by the current presidential administration — strictly “clean” coal, whatever that is supposed to be, seeing as it can never be clean.
