THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942

Saints @ Seahawks Matchup The defending champion New Orleans Saints travel to Seattle this Saturday to take on the Seahawks, who, with a 7-9 record, are the worst team ever to host a playoff game. The Seahawks only made the playoffs because they won their weak division, the NFC West, by beating the Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams in the...
It’s amazing how much a year can change. Our nation’s constantly vacillating attention can shift from India and Copenhagen to Chile and Haiti. The theory of global warming can suddenly change from consensus science to a carefully fabricated hoax. A record-setting quarterback (who will remain nameless) can go from respected Southern gentleman to perverted grandpa. And, in one short...
I’m hearing a lot of banter about Congress discussing how to deal with the expiring tax reduction legislatures passed by President George W. Bush in 2001 and 2003. To many people, this is all gibberish – a plethora of political garbage being thrown around, topped with relentless partisan criticism. For the most part, however, people understand that tax rates are...

The wait is finally over. For now. Part one of the final movie of the most popular children’s books this decade has been released and is a box office smash hit. The much anticipated release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 brings with it much praise as well as fair amounts of criticism. On the whole, the...
Quick Overview: Halo Reach brought back life to the Halo series, giving new and  interesting game modes, coupled with new maps, customization options, and new weapons. However, if you weren’t a fan of Halo before, these improvements  will not change your mind at all. Overall: I give this game a score of 9/10. Now, to be honest, this review is going...
Ah, it’s that bi-annual time of the year again, when our airwaves are bombarded with dark, prophetic messages played over ominous music, when the dog walkers and friendly neighbors on our daily routes are replaced with yard signs and bumper stickers. The time when the political ax-men and cavalry come out of the woodwork to inform ignorant voters of “the...
Ah, homecoming. That time of the fall when we all break out those flashy mums and slick suits for a weekend of fun and excitement starting the Friday of Ranger Day. The pep rally festivities were kicked off by the first-ever Slam Dunk Competition in which the junior class was proudly represented by Michael Holder and Chris Steiner. The stakes...
