Personal responsibility should guide nation

September 13, 2002

OBy Chris Hill n the one-year memorial of that horrendous, evil attack on our nation and our freedom, Americans still debate our continued plan of action.

September 12, 2002

ABy Caesar Farah s we pass the first anniversary of the dreadful events that cost so many innocent lives, many throughout the world are still in shock over why such an incident should have taken place.

War on terror renews cycle of violence

September 12, 2002

The events of Sept. 11, 2001 were atrocities of such an immense scale that they have left no lives untouched. Our deepest sympathies lie with the victims of the attacks and their families. Loss of innocent life is undeniably tragic and is never politically or religiously justifiable. The fact of the ma...

Don’t trade freedom for false security

September 11, 2002

DBy Jane Kirtley epending on whom you talk to, either everything changed on Sept. 11, 2001, or nothing changed.

Reconsider the Greens

September 10, 2002

I read Monday's article on the two Green Party candidates, Ed McGaa and Ray Tricomo, with great interest. I hope anyone else who read it came away, as I did, with the strong impression that there's more to the Greens than saving the environment. Few of Tricomo's proposals are specific enough to be use...

John Troyer

September 10, 2002

Work-study blues

September 6, 2002

I am quite dismayed at the depth of last year's budget cuts. I am currently a junior, and although I am qualified, I will be unable to receive work-study funds for the school year. Why? Because the funds were distributed first to freshmen, and the University ran out of money before all students with fina...
