The majority of the boys who attended all-boys Catholic high schools like Kavanaugh are thoughtful, intelligent, service-oriented young men, whose high school educations provided them with a space to develop their faith and intellect. But there's a dark underbelly exists too.
A few nights later, I saw a possum on my walk home. Let me be clear: if I dislike raccoons, I hate possums. They look like zombie rat-raccoon blends. As ridiculous as it sounds (what was the possum going to do, chase me back to my dorm?), I ran, faster than I have in recent memory, until I felt the fear seeping out of my system.
Of the eight nights that I was home for spring break, four were consumed by the appallingly and unbelievably long "Bachelor" finale. My parents, brother, sister and I watched, half-mocking and half-enthralled, as Arie Luyendyk Jr. - 36 years old, 6'2'', conspicuously graying, son of two-time Indianapolis winner Arie Luyendyk - vacillated pathetically between his two remaining love interests.

I'm not really a math person. Nor am I a big-lecture-hall kind of person. My worst grade in college came from Astronomy 101, the so-called "science class for humanities majors." That label is a misnomer: I am a humanities major, and I struggled. (And, honestly, all the physics and speed of light stuff was hard, ok?

Erika Lust: feminist, mother of two daughters, political science and gender studies major, and... pornographer. Since her first production, "The Good Girl," in 2004, the Swedish-born, Barcelona-based director and producer has put out hundreds of award-winning films that focus on female pleasure and diverse sexualities, placing her at the forefront of the alternative porn scene.
You'd call yourself a progressive leftist, but you don't see much hope for change from the SPD, the Greens or even Die Linke. These small parties want to get you inspired and involved. We met with their leaders to find out what makes them stand out.
