I may be a bit premature in my graduation column, but we are starting to work on our special graduation edition of the paper around here so it’s on my mind.

It’s inevitable. Even more certain than the sun is to rise tomorrow. You guessed it – an argument … with a female. At some point or another, we find ourselves locked into a heated discussion with the opposite sex about things that seem so simple. I know what you’re thinking, too. “If they would just hush and listen to what I have to say.” What we really mean is: “We
