Sept. 28 Quick Commentary

By Emma Goodwin

Rain didn’t go away, but didn’t ruin game day

The Illini fought hard enough to beat Kent State in the season opener this Saturday. What a great way to start the season, guys! It stinks that the game advertised as “Greek Night” was rescheduled for a day when 50 percent of Greeks couldn’t make it, but regardless, go Illini! Can’t wait for more games to come (and hopefully another Friday night game next year that won’t get rained out?)

Trump gets trumped by Clinton

No matter what side of the political spectrum you’re on, hopefully we can all agree that women deserve the same rights as men (no matter what you choose to call it). Finally, this weekend, Hillary Clinton spoke up for all of us at a New Hampshire rally when she said, “If it’s all the same to you Mr. Trump, I’d rather you stop cherishing women and start respecting women.” Retweet, retweet, retweet!

It’s getting too hot in here

    So it’s finally September, and yet, over the weekend, it was almost 95 degrees outside. We don’t know about you guys, but we’re sick of this. Once school starts, it’s officially time for fall, Curtis Orchard, sweaters, Pumpkin Spice Lattes and everything else that fits under the category of #basic. Mother nature, please catch on already and save us from the misery.

    “No Control” for grammar checks

    He isn’t just a pretty face, guys! At One Direction’s concert last week in Philadelphia, Harry Styles grabbed a fan’s sign (it said “Hi Harry your so nice!”) and corrected it to say “Hi Harry you’re so nice!” Just so you know, Harry, The Daily Illini is currently hiring copy editors if *your* interested! (Bet you couldn’t resist fixing that, right?)
