I'm quite often tempted to blow things off. I can usually convince myself that, in the grand scheme of things, whether or not I hand in a paper really doesn't matter. I usually remain convinced until about 12 hours before an assignment's due, at which point I seat myself in front of a computer, and, savoring the soul-crushing blend of panic and resignation, pound out the page requirement. I thought to myself earlier this week, however, what if I had a excuse for blowing things off? What if I had a plan for my life after college that didn't revolve around my convincing someone in a well-tailored suit that I'm far more capable than my resume leads them to believe? So, I decided to talk with New York Mets prospect Will Bashelor '07 to find out what that might be like.

If one asked Dartmouth seniors besieged with corporate recruiting which of the previous locations does not fit, the answer would be quite obvious. When PJ Scheufele '06 began the long and winding road to post-graduation employment last winter, little did he know the path towards his dream job would go through Northern Ireland.

More Substance, Less Spin

Each election cycle, the youth attempts to rally itself from political apathy and inaction into a force powerful enough to demand the attention of our nation's policymakers. With recent disappointedly low turnout figures, and in spite of P. Diddy's stark ultimatum to "vote or die," America's youth has failed to "rock the vote." Last Friday, the Dartmouth Editorial Board justly railed against the political idleness that plagues American students ("Casting an Informed Vote," Nov. 3).

Daily Debriefing

Lawyer and Democratic activist Joseph Millimet '36 died Friday at the Pearl Manor nursing home. He co-founded the Manchester firm Devine & Millimet in 1947, oversaw the New Hampshire Bar in 1962-63, chaired the state constitutional commission through the 1960s, '70s and '80s, and also counseled Former Gov. John King. From his work representing a University of New Hampshire professor who had invited a socialist to speak in class to his work representing Sanders Associates in an anti-trust suit against IBM, Millimet was known as a prominent legal figure dedicated to public service. He died at the age of 92 after suffering from Parkinson's disease for several years. A service will be held on Nov. 10 at 11 a.m. in Brookside Congregational Church.
