Olive Garden as a metaphor for life

(01/17/24 5:00am)

I really love Olive Garden. It’s where I’ve celebrated my birthday for many years, where my parents and I stop on vacation for a nice meal, where my family dined the night before I left for college — the list goes on, but many important moments in my life have been commemorated in the company of free breadsticks. Sure, in recent years, I’ve gained more of an appreciation for trying local food and expanding my palate, but there’s just something so heartwarming about the predictability of a chain — especially one that showers you with freebies.

Letter from alumni: A response to Duke Students Supporting Israel

(01/16/24 5:00am)

We, concerned Duke alumni who are Jewish, are responding to Duke Students Supporting Israel’s Dec. 7 guest column. We share their abhorrence toward the October Hamas attack on Israel and with antisemitism in general, but we respectfully wish to offer some other valid interpretations of certain circumstances. We hope our guest column can enhance this important conversation — both within the Jewish community and externally. Ongoing civil discourse regarding current Israel-Palestine events is crucial and has become increasingly fraught. We try here to identify areas of disagreement with the student organization’s statement, placing these disagreements within an inclusive historical and contemporary context.
