Something Better

(10/02/00 9:00am)

The abortion pill RU-486 is available now. They're adding more rent-a-cops to the displays at all the local FDA hangouts and abortion clinics to protect the lives of those involved. Be warned. If you're interested in a homicidal statement against murder, it may behoove you to slay some Texas judges or a governor instead.

Killing Peace, One Child At a Time

(10/02/00 9:00am)

Watching the videotape of the death of 12-year-old Mohammed Aldura provides the viewer with one of those unforgettably tragic images. Clutching his father's shirt while caught in a cross fire between Israeli Defense Forces and Palestinian protestors on Saturday, the look of sheer terror is unmistakable on the boy's face. As bullets ricochet off the wall above him, his father tries to shield him, but to no avail. The boy is hit in the abdomen and killed; his father critically wounded. Aldura is one of over 27 Palestinians killed, along with more than 700 wounded in the latest episode of Middle East violence. One Israeli soldier has also been killed and 11 have been wounded since the fighting began. The protests started after a visit on Thursday by Israel's right-wing Likud Party leader, Ariel Sharon, to Jerusalem's Temple Mount, the third holiest site for Muslims.

Is nothing sacred?

(09/29/00 9:00am)

For years he was the cornerstone of a franchise that just couldn't quite get over the hump. He was always stuck behind Michael Jordan and the Bulls' dynasty of the '90s or mired in an abyss of early playoff disappointments that characterized the '80s for his team. Now that New York Knick management has finally put a team around him that perfectly complements his game, with the sharpshooter Allan Houston and the whirling-dervish Latrell Sprewell, Patrick Ewing is no longer a New York Knick. That image seems hard to comprehend to anyone who has seen him sweat orange and blue for so many years in New York. It's a bitter pill to swallow for Ewing, knowing that his Garden nightmare has finally come true. And I'm doubtful that Seattle will offer much refuge to a man who simply wasn't wanted in New York anymore.

Pez Wisdom

(09/29/00 9:00am)

As a wise old junior, I planned on writing a really impressive column showcasing my extensive knowledge of Dartmouth, dispensing pellets of knowledge like so many pieces of Pez and impressing all the cute '04 girls on the way. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized how anything I could say about this place would be either an angry diatribe or a depressing rant. And come on, we all know that I haven't been able to come up with an impressive column in well over a year now. But I am a junior and, since I stayed back in kindergarten, I'm probably older than a lot of you. Therefore, I feel entitled and obligated to share some of the Dartmouth knowledge I've gained in my experiences here.

'Woman on Top' bottoms out with muddled message

(09/28/00 9:00am)

In accordance with the obvious sexual origin of its title, "Woman on Top" wants to be a movie about the triumph -- or even the precondition -- of female control in matters of the senses. So if you don't want to see a movie about that, don't, especially if you're a man and you'd prefer not to be at the wrong end of a confused mix of grateful social commentary and satire.

Feed a fever

(09/28/00 9:00am)

I'll admit it -- I have Olympic fever. The thought of the best athletes in the world competing for their respective countries has to stir the blood of every sports fan in every nation. And the Games of the 27th Olympiad has done little to disappoint, but some of its athletes have.
