Kennedy painful at first, painfully funny to conclude

(11/07/05 11:00am)

As I walked into "Jamie Kennedy: Unapologetic and Uncensored" on Thursday night, I ran down a mental list of what I knew about this enigmatic yet oddly ubiquitous comedian. Who was this guy whose appearance I had enthusiastically, if perhaps a bit ignorantly, volunteered to review? An almost-famous stand-up comic hovering on the edge of mainstream success? A wannabe-Jim Carrey trying to reinvent a floundering film career by getting behind a mic? That lovably un-hip rapper from "Malibu's Most Wanted"? As it turns out, Jamie Kennedy is all these things and more. But on Thursday, as he stood before a packed Spaulding theater, joking, cursing and having sex with imaginary people, he became something else: a hit with the Dartmouth community. Eventually.


Big Red drops Big Green football 21-10 in Hanover

(11/07/05 11:00am)

In a game that often appeared to be a rare duel between the arm of one quarterback and the legs of another, the 312 passing-yards of Dartmouth quarterback Josh Cohen '09 were not enough to overtake Cornell (4-4, Ivy 2-3) on Saturday. En route to a 21-10 victory on a gorgeous afternoon at Memorial Field, the Big Red defense forced seven sacks and two turnovers while its potent rushing offense, led by senior quarterback Ryan Kuhn, piled up an astounding 282 yards on the ground.


Women's volleyball beats Columbia, falls to Cornell

(11/07/05 11:00am)

The Dartmouth volleyball team continued its tendency to prevail over lesser teams and falter in the shadow of stiffer competition as they swept Columbia (5-16, Ivy 3-7) in three games on Friday night and lost to Cornell (18-3, Ivy 11-0) on Saturday afternoon. The win over the Lions serves as the Big Green's second win over Columbia this season, whereas the loss to Cornell marks Dartmouth's eighth Ivy League loss, all of which have come to teams ranked above the Big Green.Dartmouth's four conference wins result from their defeats of Harvard (twice) and Columbia (twice), while they are winless against all other Ivy League opponents.




Men's Hockey

(11/07/05 11:00am)

When planning for the 2005-06 hockey season, Dartmouth's men certainly did not consider starting the year 0-3. After a stinging defeat at the hands of Harvard in the season-opener, the Big Green looked to amend its early woes with contests at Princeton (2-2, ECACHL 1-1) and Quinnipiac (8-2, ECACHL 2-0). It was not to be, however, as Dartmouth (0-3, ECACHL 0-3) was swept in a league weekend for the first time since '02-'03, shutout at Princeton 3-0 and outdone by Quinnipiac 7-5.


Women's soccer sends seniors off with one last victory

(11/07/05 11:00am)

On Sunday, the senior class of the Dartmouth women's soccer team donned the green for the last time, so it was only appropriate that the scoring sheet read like the roll call for the pre-game ceremony. Co-captain Megan Wijas '06 notched three assists on the day and fellow seniors Christina Ferraris '06 and Allison Green '06 each scored once with Jennie Tonneson '06 adding an assist to her season total as the Big Green downed the Cornell Big Red 5-0.





Politicizing Dartmouth's Future

(11/07/05 11:00am)

With the election of petition candidates Peter Robinson '79 and Todd Zywicki '88 to the Board of Trustees in the hotly contested May election, along with the recent Homecoming Alumni Association elections, unsettling political undertones permeate the debate about the future of the College, especially "The Lone Pine Revolution," the anti-Wright administration movement to change the direction of the College. Dartmouth alumni and the media are divided not just into pro- and anti-establishment factions, but into corresponding political camps. Conservative alumni and media appear to be supporting the anti-establishment petition candidates while liberals have seemingly embraced the Wright Administration.


Higher Standards for Justice

(11/07/05 11:00am)

Harriet Miers' nomination to the Supreme Court was defeated by conservative ideologues not content with Miers' conservative credentials: she did not have a documented history of social conservatism and the White House was unable to convince its conservative base that she was "one of them." The White House's feeble attempts to quell the conservatives' doubts -- with winks, nods, and a declaration of her devout "Christian-ness" -- proved about as effective as the Bay of Pigs. The (Christian) Right wanted to know, not just be told, that Miers was a devout Christian; they wanted to know that Miers had a reactionary ideology that she would aggressively bring to the Court as a justice. As Bush did not provide them with these assurances, they killed Miers' nomination.
