Times They Are a Changin'

The men and women who are going to take Dartmouth into the next decade are very different from you and me (and not, as F.

Confessions of a Republican

My name is Brian, and I'm a Republican." While it may seem a bit odd for someone to make an Alcoholics Anonymous-style confession like this, especially now that the Republican party seems as strong as ever, that is exactly how I have begun to feel lately. Being a Republican, which used to bring pride and comfort in the knowledge that I was supporting candidates I actually believed would do the best job, now seems to bring me only shame, guilt by association and even embarrassment with each passing day.

Housing: A Look Behind the Stats

In defense of "Pulp Fiction"

Earlier this week, Chris Kelly ("Dartmouth's 'Pulp' Obsession," Jan. 16) treated readers of The Dartmouth's editorial page to a lengthy commentary on the campus' response to the hit film "Pulp Fiction," which I and several friends found condescending and offensive to certain people on this campus. Kelly's comments about the movie were not what we found objectionable; all of his praise was well-deserved.

Salary Discrepancies, Sexism the Cause?

Recently, The New York Times reported that two separate studies had shown that, on average, men whose wives stayed home and didn't work received more pay raises and substantially higher salaries than men whose wives did work. The first study, of 348 men at 20 Fortune 500 companies, found that over a five-year period, single-earner husbands received 20 percent higher pay raises than men with working wives.
