Let the Progressive Dinners Begin ...

(05/09/97 9:00am)

About a week ago I got my first rush blitz. It was starting. What had been a passing thought was now a concrete one. Five minutes after that first blitz I got another "so you going on Friday?" Then another "going to the rush dinner", then another "wanna go to the dinner?" and finally "what are you wearing to the dinner?". Some place in the back of my mind a little voice with a valley girl accent exclaimed "Like oh my god, I have nothing to wear!" So of course I suppressed this annoying little voice and determined to wear overalls and sneakers. I don't want to belong to a house that cares about what I look like or how I dress; they should want me because I'm me. I continued with this line of thought just long enough to see all my friends in skirts and make-up and turned right around to change.

Information Deprivation

The other day in my eleven o'clock class we were discussing how we know what the weather will be like. My method generally is to look out the window and this bit of wisdom was shared by a number of others in the class. While that is my system here at Dartmouth, it is not generally what I do at home. There I catch the news in the morning by radio or TV. I also watch the news in the evening, and will usually look over a paper. Some things may escape me, but I normally have a very good conception about what is going on in the world.

Teach Judges to Think Like Scientists

(05/07/97 9:00am)

The time has finally arrived for our nation's federal judges to temporarily remove their black judicial robes in order to get fitted for their new white laboratory coats. A recent Justice Department report revealing "extremely serious and significant problems" in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's crime laboratory has confirmed that no longer can federal judges rely upon top governmental scientific experts to present valid and unbiased expert testimony in cases involving complex scientific and technology-based issues. As a result, judges must now, more than ever, be prepared to critically evaluate the scientific expert testimony proffered by both parties in criminal and civil trials.
