Taiwan, China sign new air travel agreement (11/05/08)
TAIPEI, Taiwan -- China and Taiwan made history Tuesday with an agreement that allows planes and ships to travel directly across the Taiwan Strait -- the place where many have feared they would fight their next battle. Still, the Asian rivals appear far from resolving the root causes of nearly six decades of hostilities and distrust.

MU's Christopher makes quiet impact at linebacker for Tigers (11/05/08)
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri linebacker Brock Christopher isn't one to say much on the field, but with his production as a three-year starter it's easy to see why he doesn't have to.

USC's Carroll vents: 'BCS system stinks' (11/05/08)

A Harte Appetite: Going beyond chips and cheese (11/05/08)
Michael David Monn will probably be celebrating Thursday. That's because Thursday is National Nachos Day and Monn is given to going overboard when it comes to arguably the most famous of Tex-Mex snacks. A few years ago Monn broke into a snack bar in his hometown of Marysville, Tenn., at 5 a.m. on a Sunday, stripped naked, covered himself in nacho cheese, and then scaled an 8-foot-high wall to return to his car where he was nabbed, no doubt with some difficulty, by police...
Review: Someone should take back 'Repo!' (11/05/08)
"Repo! The Genetic Opera" is easily one of the worst movies of the year, if not all time. This goth garbage isn't clever enough to be "Sweeney Todd" and it isn't campy enough to be "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" — it's not even worthwhile in a culty, midnight-movie way. ...
Oil prices rise after plunging (11/05/08)
VIENNA, Austria -- Oil prices made up some lost ground Tuesday after plummeting on mounting evidence of a U.S recession and waning Chinese demand.

Profanity, immorality in theater (11/05/08)
To the editor: The River Campus of Southeast Missouri State University is a treasure that has the promise of great community cultural advantage. That's why I was so disappointed in the Oct. 29 production of "Sister Mary Ignatius." The young actors put everything they had into the production, but the subject matter was insulting at best and sacrilegious at worst. ...
Speak Out 11/5/08 (11/05/08)
Offended by officers CAPE GIRARDEAU police officers were not prepared for Sarah Palin's visit. Two officers on bikes leading Palin from the Show Me Center down Lexington Avenue were yelling at motorists who had done nothing wrong. Vehicles pulled over, and they were still yelling. The leader nearly lost control of his bike in the process. If the police wanted everyone off the road, the smart thing to do would've been to block off where Perryville Road and Lexington meet...
