Oberlin voters win Lorain County for Kerry

Junior Asha Williams said “Bush’s presence” got her out to vote. Town resident Virginia Simons responded to ’unprecedented“ failures in foreign policy. For these reasons among others, Lorain County saw a dramatic 70 percent voter turnout that mirrored shockingly high turnout throughout the country.

The times, they are changing: iPod revolution

The Tappan Zee Bridge has always terrified me. At certain angles it appears to head straight into the water, the reflection of the sun obscuring the arching road. I first crossed it when I was 10 years old, half-asleep on a long road trip with my parents, and I remember a sudden rush of terror and adrenaline as we edged closer and closer to the waterÕs surface - not enough to wake me up, but enough to freeze still my contorted and trembling face. I was suddenly sure we were all going to die, and the preparatory scream was stuck in my throat.

Punk rock just isn’t what it used to be

The Cramps knocked the audience off its feet at the Odeon on Wednesday, Oct. 13 Š literally, in some cases. With a long set in which each song got progressively weirder, more protracted, and less musical, and a nearly crazed audience that danced like there was no tomorrow, the show was enough to leave this writer bruised, breathless, and utterly shocked (in a good way, of course).
