Twenty Pounds of Headlines

This is a typical example of one song that your, uh, English music newspapers would call a drug song: " I go, I don't, uh, I don't write druuuggg songs " (slurring words), "You know like I never have, I wouldn't know how to go about it, but this is not a drug song [crowd claps]. I'm not saying it for any kind of defensive reason or anything like that. It's just not a drug song. I don't mean " it's just [affects English accent] vulgar to think so."

Pilots Fight Back

(04/23/03 9:00am)

There may be a new passenger on your next airline flight: a .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol. This past weekend, 46 airline pilots became the first graduates of the Transportation Security Administration's self-defense and firearms training course. After completing the week-long class, conducted at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Georgia, the pilots went back to their planes -- packing heat. Thousands more pilots are expected to enroll in the new program, the product of post-9/11 legislation allowing pilots to carry guns in the cockpit. Now air travelers will be safer as a result.

Axim for Trouble

(04/22/03 9:00am)

Since I just got into grad school, I thought I'd reward myself by getting a Dell Axim handheld PC. I can't wait for it to arrive. It's basically a Palm Pilot on steroids, but no Palm Pilot can give me a 400 mHz processor, CompactFlash and Secure Digital expansion slots, a 3.5 inch screen, and a speaker system that fits in my shirt pocket. Plus you can add an 802.11b card so that your Axim can connect to any wireless network.

Inequities in Admissions

Here's to hoping the Supreme Court members are ardent followers of political history. If so, here's to hoping they remember Dwight D. Eisenhower's inaugural address on January 20, 1953 where he said: "A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both." Finally, here's to hoping the Supreme Court and Executive Branch heed Eisenhower's advice on the eve of the post-war legislative forum; a forum dominated by the University of Michigan's affirmative action case. For if they are ardent followers of political history, and do remember Eisenhower, then they will see this case as a reaffirmation of privilege's establishment in our society and the absolvement of our principles.
