Amnesty. A word that strikes fear in the souls of many Americans who see the concept as consent to open borders and millions of illegal border-hoppers jumping over a non-existent fence to steal good ole American jobs and destroying American culture. However, supporters of amnesty in the United States...

By the end of this day over 200 sites in the Gaza Strip will become targets of Israeli missiles.  Thousands of Pakistani citizens will be without a home or place of residence; refugees in a once again war torn region.

No Fear, Shakespeare

Sara Anderson, Staff Writer

February 26, 2014

Let’s face it, talking about Shakespeare’s relevance is going to go no where. He is still relevant, he will probably always be relevant. If Plato is still going strong, Shakespeare is here to stay.
