Today, Wednesday, November 30, 2011, Jesuit’s Not for Sale Club will be screening The Dark Side of Chocolate in Hughes Hall.  This film by Miki Mistrati and U. Roberto Romano is a documentary about the illegal use of child slaves who are trafficked to the Ivory Coast for the gathering and selling of cocoa beans. Luckily, we live in Dallas,...
This year’s National Football Conference (NFC) has been marked with particularly dominating teams. This past week has been no exception, with the top two teams in the NFC winning again. The Green Bay Packers became the first team in the NFL this season to win 10 games and are poised to make a serious run at a perfect season, a...
After a yearlong wait, Jesuit’s much hyped athletic facility was finished and finally opened to Ranger athletes in mid-October 2011.  And of course, as the opening day came closer and closer, excitement and speculation permeated the “water- cooler” talk of students and faculty alike.

And you'll see me with no other burrito in my hands than one from Chipotle, the pinnacle of burrito excellence. Some argue that another burrito establishment, Qdoba, surpasses Chipotle's burrito quality in that they provide the...

Qdoba Wins

For all those out there who favor Chipotle’s burrito over Qdoba’s there can be only one excuse: they’ve never tried Qdoba. In my opinion Qdoba’s masterpiece beats Chipotle’s in every way. Whether it’s the choice of ingredients available – Qudoba has 2 more starting meat options than Chipotle, counting the vegetarian option – or their ability to wrap the giant...
