Jacob Eichengreen ’13 is a trendsetter. “I started out thinking, what’s the dumbest thing I could possibly do?” he tells me. The answer: “Frosted tips. And then a week later, all these hipsters started bleaching their hair. I think it’s fairly obvious what happened there.” Here at The Argus, we’re not fond of confusing correlation […]

Despite what you may have previously thought, Allie Levey is not just that guy who sings a lot of a cappella. He wants the world to know that he does other stuff, too.

Ed Klein, a friend of mine has a yellow sweater that would look so good with your yellow pants. Just saying. Don’t you think they should pass out a pair of topsiders to each of the incoming freshmen and by senior year everybody’s topsiders will be rugged enough to guarantee safety in the harsh world ‘out there’?

Just a minor clarification: in my previous Wespeak I mentioned the Afrikaaners as an example and said they weren’t backed by a parent state.

Sorry for the confusing wording.

Response to Salzberg’s points

Alex Salzberg, while colonialism may have a specific definition according to a dictionary, it’s most often used to describe any settler movement, regardless of its backing by a parent state(s). Take, for example, the Afrikaaners in South Africa.
