If running for office is like being a boxer, then running for President is like going for the heavyweight title. You can dance around and take little jabs at your opponent, feeling each other out in early rounds; but eventually you must come together and exchange blows. Put plainly, politics is a pure power grab. If brokers and bankers get into what they do for the money, politicians do it all for the power. This is not a game for nice guys: if you want real power, you have to be willing to get down and fight.
Before leaping to condemn Israel for "unnecessary" force against the new Palestinian Intifada, one ought to put oneself in the position of a scared soldier ordered to stop a riot. Your platoon is outnumbered ten to one, 40 against 400 rock-throwing people filled with blood lust. It's a confined area, and there are a thousand places for a sniper to hide. Some members of the crowd are brandishing AK-47s and M-16 assault rifles whose bullets punch through flak vests and helmets.
Mark Noel told his story of how he was banished from the Boy Scouts of America organization for being homosexual to an attentive audience in the Phi Tau coeducational fraternity living room last night.

October 3 saw the American release of an acclaimed British album, "The Hour of Bewilderbeast," the full-length debut from a man who calls himself Badly Drawn Boy. BDB -- presumably no relation to The Dartmouth's own Badly Drawn Girl and Hastily Rendered Boy -- is really Damon Gough, a lad from Manchester, a talented singer and multi-instrumentalist who has been called "the British Beck."
Intra-Ivy League volleyball play was in full effect this weekend.
Ivy League men's soccer teams were 2-0 in non-conference play this weekend. Brown, with its win over Columbia, now appears to represent the biggest obstacle in Dartmouth's quest to capture the Ivy League crown.
After a victory Saturday against winless Yale, the Dartmouth field hockey team ran into stiffer competition yesterday when it hosted Syracuse University at Scully-Fahey Field. The Orangemen (10-5) shut down a Big Green (6-3, 3-1 Ivy) offense that had been averaging over 3.6 goals per game, winning 2-0.
The Dartmouth women's soccer team defeated Syracuse University yesterday afternoon by a single goal scored in the 73rd minute of play. Dartmouth gained revenge on the 'Cuse, who had beaten the Big Green a year ago.
As I start to reflect on my Dartmouth career, one of the things I often think about was the wonderful experience I had a year ago in the fall. I received a Tucker fellowship to work full-time as an Interpreter Intern for Spanish in Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Recent polls, as reported in the New York Times, show George W. Bush leading Al Gore among voting age men. In California, this question was asked: If Bush and Gore were cars, what kind of cars would they be? Before I consider the inane responses to this query, let's examine the inane question itself. The car substitution poll, even if conducted in California, is dumb. The representation of the presidential candidates as a particular make of automobile says more about the person being polled than it could possibly say about the candidates.
News commentator and former Ronald Reagan speechwriter Laura Ingraham '85 addressed the 2000 election in a speech given at the Rockefeller Center yesterday afternoon, saying that voters are not helped by what she sees as two candidates overly sensitized to negative campaigning.
This past weekend, 23 hikers set off on the Appalachian Trail for a non-stop 53 mile hike to Mt. Moosilauke. Trailworking, a hike called "The Moose" and 46 miles of road biking rounded out this year's Fall Weekend for the Dartmouth Outing Club.
With 60 percent of the Class of 2004 owning PCs -- and with PCs becoming more popular with upperclass students at the College, as well -- worries surfaced about the ability of the Computing Services help desk to deal with a larger amount of PC problems.
