Taking a walk on the wild side

Poet Thomas Lynch tries his hand at fiction

by Bill Castanier
His newest collection of fiction is a departure from his previous books which were collections of essays and poetry. And, although Lynch is currently working on a longer piece of fiction, he said if he didn’t use poetry as a daily exercise he wouldn’t write.

'Song' sung blue

Miley Cyrus: Still a girl, not yet an actress in her dramatic debut 'The Last Song'

by James Sanford
Miley Cyrus fans, don’t say you weren’t warned. Remember how “The Hannah Montana Movie” took a serious turn in the last half-hour, with Miley suffering an identity crisis?

Building a ‘bond of respect’

MSU conference seeks to dispel myth surrounding Muslims’ connection to violence, terrorism

by Jessica Carreras

Negative images in the media, combined with the instilled fear of terrorism, have left Americans wondering whom they can direct their anger and panic at. In many cases, the answer has been the nation’s own Muslim American communities. But Farha Abbasi, a resident in Michigan State University’s department of psychiatry, is aiming to change that.
