Your editorial of Sept. 7, 2007, "An Old Tradition Fails," raises two issues relevant to the wisdom of alumni electing trustees: Do alumni have a democratic right to elect trustees? Are such elections the best way to compose a board that will act in Dartmouth's best interests?
When we think about politics or business, we tend to think in terms of allies and enemies. This is only natural; it's a comfortable way to think about the world. There are allies who you can always implicitly trust because they agree with you and there are enemies who you never have to consider because they are always wrong or against you. However, this is an outmoded way of thinking: There are no longer allies and enemies. There are only partners and non-partners.
I'm a life-long Democrat, so I was thrilled to be one of the lucky few who won the lottery and got a ticket to last Wednesday night's debate. Getting to see so many of my party's luminaries assembled all in one place was an incredible experience.
This weekend Dartmouth's men's and women's golf teams both put in largely successful efforts, as the men claimed fifth in the 16-team field at the Cornell Invitational and the women finished tenth at the Yale Women's Fall Intercollegiate tournament. Both tournaments concluded Sunday.
In the tournament opener against Yale, a dull moment was hard to come by as both teams scored early and often in the back and forth battle. From the start, Dartmouth seemed to be on the defensive, with goalkeeper Kyle Finnegan '09 stopping a number of point-blank shots to keep the game from turning in Yale's favor.
As a Montgomery Fellow in residence, Merce Cunningham's responsibilities are to participate in or inspire activities and events related to his craft. At least nine different engagements are planned for "The Art of Merce: Dartmouth Celebrates an Iconoclast," along with the performance of Cunningham's dance company this weekend.
Pollack later painted an oil sketch (Untitled: Bald Woman with Skeleton) which is almost certainly inspired by a panel from Orozco's mural, "Gods of the Modern World" -- you know the one, where a giant skeleton looks like he's about to receive a sexual favor and/or birth a baby mortarboard-clad skeleton.
A blocked punt deep in Dartmouth's (1-2, 1-0 Ivy) territory set up a quick touchdown strike and, soon after, an onside kick recovery for the Quakers (0-3, 0-1 Ivy) with 2:37 remaining in the game. Quarterback Bryan Walker's two minute drill brought Penn to the Big Green six on fourth down.
The temperature Saturday evening dropped below 50 degrees, weather more typically associated with football than soccer.
Early in this fall season, the Big Green sailing team has already sent some of its athletes to regattas around the northeast. At a Northern Series regatta held at Dartmouth, the Big Green was able to place second, behind the University of Vermont. The highlight of the race came with the first place finish by Matthew Cohen '10 and Christina Clark '10.
Over the past few months, we've seen countless athletes fail to live up to their responsibilities as role models. In many ways, we've come to a point where we expect our heroes to disappoint us, much like the season premiere of NBC's Heroes. We're constantly bombarded by stories of all that is wrong in sports. Bonds, Vick, Ankiel, Pacman, OJ (again), all athletes who could have been celebrated; instead, they've all found themselves in the news for the wrong reasons this summer.
