Guerilla Smalltalk

(05/02/02 9:00am)

As I write this article on the eve of the Student Assembly elections, I could care less. About what? Well, for starters the self-importants who think they have the "power" to change the way the campus thinks about alcohol, the Greeks, life, baby harp seals, the 15 library construction projects and DDS delivery. Right about now, I sense a certain SA President will be beginning a blitz to me extolling the virtues of our representative organization. But hear me out; I'm reformed. I do believe the Assembly is important and has a place on campus. I love GreenPrint and other endeavors pursued by the Assembly this year (Well, the jury's still out about that "brilliant" DDS delivery idea). However, contrary to what is publicized, such programs and initiatives are purely auxiliary to the functioning of our campus -- which is why all this talk of "reform," "spirit" and "democracy" is grating.

Barak's Mixed Metaphors

(05/02/02 9:00am)

Though Ehud Barak did not give a speech worthy of a classical orator, he made his point emphatically clear: this is the "world war on terror," and it is our duty (read: the West and Israel) as the defenders of all that is good and democratic to stamp out Palestinian terrorism. He used several analogies and quotes, most noticeably comparing the terrorists to pirates sailing on the high seas, and the subsequent effort to quash their existence. This metaphor clearly brands the pirates as either people from "rogue states," or non-state based organizations such as Al-Qaida. It thrusts us into the role of the civilizer, investing us with the duty to take back the seas (Palestinian land) by depriving the pirates of food and water (imposing economic reforms on the fhPalestinians).
