  • Commentary: Obama protest from the eyes of a participant

  • Editorial: 'Don't ask, don't tell' is finally buried

    President Obama this week awarded the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers to UC Irvine assistant professor Rommie Amaro. "I was pretty surprised — very honored and surprised," said Amaro, 34, an assistant professor of...
  • Mailbag: Congress should pass American Jobs Act

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has said that Republicans won't even vote on the American Jobs Act. I want to know why. It would be one thing if the Republican Party, or if Cantor himself, had some specific objection to the act, but to refuse to vote...
  • Apodaca: UCI launches first ROTC program in wake of 'don't ask, don't tell' reversal

    Lost amid the recent media frenzy over the so-called Irvine 11 was some good news coming out of UC Irvine. The repeal of the military's "Don't ask, don't tell" policy, which took effect Sept. 20, has resulted in the establishment of the first ROTC...
