Local View: Condemnation of Franken unfair

In a way, the anchor of my political destiny rests on U.S. Sen. Al Franken's legacy. I left my 10-year-old son with a neighbor in Reseda, Calif., in 2008 to work for the Democratic Party in Minnesota. For six weeks in Bemidji, I was a field organizer for a coordinated campaign to promote the Democrats' new star Al Franken as well as Collin Peterson and John Persell. I had just finished my master's degree in political science at Cal State Northridge, and it was my brainiac friends, like Jing Cheng Xu, a Berkeley student, who insisted I take the job. -- Duluth News Tribune - MN

Stressed out over finals? Colleges offer hammocks, massages; even a mechanical bull ride

At Cal State Northridge, they call it “Crunch Time” and the offers include mini facials and free study supplies. At Loyola Marymount, “Feel Good Finals” includes a milk and cookies night and setting aside some time for creative playing with Legos, origami and puzzles. And at Whittier College, a “DeStress Carnival” offered students a mechanical bull riding machine. -- Orange County Register
