My Features, My Smile, My Eyes

(07/03/01 9:00am)

We climbed the stairs off of the ferry from Italy on our mid-FSP break. It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day wafted from the ship stereo, my stomach knots of this is Corsica, this is where I'm from interspersed with how am I going to get in touch with my family? I've never been here before. Outside the boat we were stunned by the bright Corsican sun and sharp salt air, and soon I was staring into round beetle-eyes I'd seen in pictures of my great-grandmother, a smile crinkling below those eyes, and a booming too-fast French voice: Les trois filles americaines? I am Karl. Who is Jourdan? Ah, you are Jourdan. You resemble exactly your mother. And we were tugged along by his stringbean-thin, eggplant-haired, fabulously-frocked wife with her too-fast metabolism that increased the speed of everything she did: eat, drink, talk, smoke -- Marie-Ange.

Environmental Equity

(06/29/01 9:00am)

The word "equity" connotes a balance, fairness and concepts of justice. We in the United States have long considered ourselves a just, equal and fair society. Internationally, however, this is not true. The political realitiy is we are an environmental bully. The U.S. government has repeatedly stymied attempts to forge a binding global agreement on global warming. The most recent attempt is the Kyoto Protocol, which the Bush administration has declared "dead" and "unfair" to U.S. interests. Before passing judgement that the Kyoto Protocol is unfair to the U.S., I suggest an in depth examination of environmental equity. President Bush is correct: Kyoto is an imperfect document, but it is the best one we have.

Rantings, Part I

(06/29/01 9:00am)

Since it's sophomore summer (finally!), I believe I'll cultivate a more intimate tone in my column for my fellow '03s and for those random non-'03s out there. Make it more chatty-like. Good idea, no? My logic is this: if any of you send me blitzes pointing out the worthlessness of a particular article of mine, I have a pretty good chance of hunting you down and destroying you, seeing as the Dartmouth population has been reduced to a measly thousand or so souls.

Live Free or Die

(06/29/01 9:00am)

As a member of the Greek Life Steering Committee, I am deeply disturbed by the new policies announced by the Office of Residential Life last Friday, but I probably should not be. After all, the administration has a horrible track record of operating in good faith. I guess I was either stupid or nave to believe that this would change when they said they were forming the GLSC to give students a role in implementing the Student Life Initiative. As the process went along, signs began to appear that demonstrated that they were less concerned with what we, as students, wanted our vision of the future of Dartmouth social life to be, instead it appeared that the report would reflect what the administration wanted to implement. Throughout the process, items appeared in the drafts of the report that the committee had not approved. I know a few of us spent a considerable amount of time discussing specific issues with Dean Barnhardt, and we expected some version of the report to appear in May. I still have not seen a final draft of the report, a month and a half after the supposed "deadline" for all our comments to be in. As time went on, I began to become concerned that the delay meant that administrators had problems with the work of the committee and that new proposals would "appear" in the report when it was finally released. The actions of ORL on Friday convince me that this is the case.
