Letter to the Editor: MU College Republicans denounce racist fliers

TO THE EDITOR: Yesterday, racist, hateful and inflammatory fliers were found around our campus. These fliers were adorned with the name and logo of Miami University College Republicans. We will be perfectly clear on this issue: our organization was not involved with these fliers in any way, shape or form. The placement of our logo on these fliers was done illegally and without our knowledge. Without hesitation and through our strongest resolve, Miami University College Republicans condemn the views expressed on these fliers and denounce the practice of dishonestly and maliciously affixing our group’s name to such views.

The article does not mention how Dr. Jeremy Jones struggled...

Pitt and Cotillard breathe life into spy thriller, ‘Allied’

By Kirby Davis, Staff Writer “Allied” is a war and spy film for people who don’t really like war and spy films. It’s the smoothest, glitziest war-torn love story I’ve ever seen, made watchable by Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard’s untouchable chemistry. Pitt plays Max Vatan, a stoic, smart-mouthed Canadian spy who arrives in Casablanca in 1942 to take out the German ambassador at a dinner party.
