On March 13, Vanity Fair published an 8,800-word cover story glossed with a portrait of Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke: his brown-gray hair tussled over his forehead, bucolic Texas landscape in the background and door of his Toyota Tundra ajar. The piece profiles him in detail, covering everything from his penchant for punk rock to his presidential ambitions. “Man, I'm just born to be in it,” he said.

WASON: Death to death row: We must abolish capital punishment

(03/27/19 7:32pm)

Let us consider the fundamental values of countries such as China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Pakistan, Egypt or Somalia. Think for a second. What comes to mind? Is it democracy? Human rights maybe? I did not think so. Well, at least I would certainly hope not. If we were to add the U.S. onto this authoritarian cocktail of a list, nobody would blame you for picturing them as sitting at the head of a table, scolding the rest for their bad behavior. Unfortunately, this time the U.S. is here to join the party rather than stop it.

For the first time in history, the Rutgers wrestling team has its national champions.

EDITORIAL: Admissions scandal shows broken system

(03/25/19 4:00am)

Earlier this month, the U.S. Justice Department began the prosecutorial process of the largest college cheating scheme in department history. Fifty people were charged nationwide with cheating on college admissions exams and securing admission to elite colleges through bribery and conspiracy.
