Dealing With Dictators

(10/29/02 11:00am)

While it's a stretch to state that any good can come from North Korea's recent revelation that it possesses a nuclear bomb, at least Pyongyang's surprise announcement of nuclear prowess serves to drive home an important geopolitical point: governments -- especially those of the backward, autocratic persuasion -- lie. They lie a lot.

Pat McGee Band brings uncommon talent to Collis

(10/28/02 11:00am)

I remember sitting shotgun in a friend's car, driving around Bethesda, Md., and bemoaning the burdens of our junior year of high school. The CD playing in the background penetrated through my cloudy ruminations and drew my attention to the car's speakers. I nudged the volume knob up a bit, then a bit more.

The stricter policies of the Immigration and Naturalization Services prevented part-time students from traveling across national borders to their U.S. schools.

Crew: Rowers Battle Wind, Crabs in Boston

This past weekend, the Dartmouth rowing club headed down to Boston to compete in the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta. Despite 10 to 15 mph headwinds and the fact that Dartmouth's schedule forces the teams to get a later start training on the water than most rivals, the men's lightweight and heavyweight teams, as well as the women's team, posted very strong results.
