Lately, a strange yet invigorating '80s-esque dance song has been blaring out of what at first seems to be your standard-fare McDonald's commercials designed to appeal to an urban demographic. While taking on the flavors of the bouncy, catchy beats of the "Me Decade," there is something a bit deeper, a bit more reflective and a bit more lyrical to this music. It has subtlety and a somewhat disconcerting sense of sincerity, in contrast to ironic '80s-throwback bands like Fannypack and Junior Senior. It is distinctively out of place within the confines of a McDonald's ad, and some may find themselves asking, "What is this music?"

Ben Selznick '07 needlessly reminded us that there are two realms of discourse " the public and the private ("On Religion," Sept. 28). He then went on to discuss how religion relates to these two realms, presenting two different views on that issue. He gave a charming (but inaccurate) description of the first camp and drew an unfair (and inaccurate) caricature of the second.
"When the people are unhappy with the government, in America they try to change the government; in the Soviet Union, the government tries to change the people." " Old Soviet joke.
Despite all the discussion of President Bush's culpability in the wake of Katrina, most Dartmouth students have yet to blame deposed FEMA Director Michael Brown, Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco or New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin for any of the storm's aftermath. I am not sure whether this is due to the chronological distance from Katrina, the relative obscurity of mayors and bureaucrats, or that most Hanover residents irrationally and pathologically hate Bush.

There have always existed two realms of discourse--the public, where actions are presented for popular consumption, and the private, where individuals are allowed to more or less do as they please. Underlying this dichotomy is the simple reality that there are certain dialogues which must necessarily take place in public--for example, the making of laws that govern the citizens of a state--and personal concerns, which have no necessity being brought into the public realm.
Over the last week, many returning students have been pleasantly surprised by the presence of kegs in frat basements on nights when the fraternity is not registered. This phenomenon is a direct result of the changes made by the Social Events Management Procedures Committee in the spring, which make distributing alcohol easier this year than it was last year. Like the PBR that many of us can now enjoy, the taste of progress is sweet. And like the wait for a game to get racked when there is only one keg tapped, this progress has been slow.
This Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon narrowly defeated Likud rival Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu in a party vote. His political victory solidifies an important ideological shift for Likud, Israel's ruling right-wing party. The extent of popular and political support will determine the success of this shift. Yet as Sharon grabs hold of the re-emerging political center, his greatest obstacle is not internal opposition by Bibi or external opposition by Labor, but terrorism. If terrorist acts against Israel increase, the center will fall, Likud will move to the right and Sharon's ideological shift will unravel along with his political career.
