First-year sailors step into the spotlight with second place at Yale regatta

(11/04/04 11:00am)

On Friday night, while most of the '08 class was running their requisite laps around the oh-so-touchable bonfire, four of their classmates were asleep down at Yale University, resting up for the New England Freshman Championships. A finish in the top eight at Yale would earn the team a spot at the freshman Atlantic Coast Championships next weekend at Navy.

A sense of disillusionment on campus was hard to miss, with large numbers of Kerry supporters going as far as to organize a midnight vigil to grieve for their candidate's loss in the popular and electoral vote.

Verbum Ultimum

Today, with any luck, the presidential election will be decided. To those who voted Tuesday -- wherever they voted and whomever they chose -- we offer our sincerest thanks. In an era in which many young people display only apathy about the future of the country, it is heartening to know that so many capable and talented Dartmouth students joined the throngs of American voters who cast their ballots.
