Personality, Character and Conviction

It seems that the next two weeks are going to be a duel right up until the polls close. Though it may be the closest race in 40 years, it might also have the lowest turnout in 75 years. Let's forget about the whole argument of two men of privilege vying for a position of power passed down to them by the stature of their fathers. Men of means have almost always dominated the political arena. We should look at who these men really are. In 1964, Lyndon Johnson ran ads saying,"the stakes were too high" to elect the divisive Barry Goldwater. With the country at peace and the economy doing well, this year many Americans seem to be thinking that the stakes are too low for anyone to care.

Subway series

Who wasn't ecstatic when the Yankees clinched a berth in the World Series with a win over the Seattle Mariners and became the second half of the first Subway Series in 44 years. "Hopefully, everyone will enjoy it because we're talking about the best city in the world and the two best teams in baseball performing on the best stage in America," said Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman following the Yanks' 9-7 win.

My days at Dartmouth have been colored by a pseudo-political activism, a desire to engender real change in the Dartmouth "community."

Below, I enumerate and summarize these phantom committees along with tentative meeting times (locations: to be announced).

DDS, restaurants face worker shortage

(10/24/00 9:00am)

The Dartmouth Dining Services student workforce has halved this term -- from its norm of 200 to 225 student employees to 100 -- causing increased pressure on full-time employees and reductions in services, according to DDS Director Tucker Rossiter. Downtown Hanover is also experiencing this phenomenon, as its restaurant managers say they are facing a shortage of employment applicants.

Don't Let the Fire Go Out

Do not go gentle into that good night," wrote Dylan Thomas. "... Rage, rage against the dying of the light." While the poem certainly has nothing whatsoever to do with the future of the Homecoming bonfire, I think it nicely frames the question I have been asking myself: why are students so quiet about the fate of what is arguably one of our oldest, most universally beloved traditions?
