Shocker: Millennials hate the DC Metro

Obama's SOTU target audience: Millennials?
Tuesday night marked President Obama’s last State of the Union address.

MLK not inclusive enough for U-Oregon students
One of the lessons we learned entering 2016 is that college kids will complain about just about every and any kind of “microaggression” and need a “safe space” for anything you can possibly think of.
