February 9, 2005 The University News 5 News A UD stu- dent jay- walks. According to a study by the City of Irving, pedestrians have been observed ignoring common sense rules on Northgate. John Schuler/ University News Northgate CONT. FROM PAGE 1 Clark affirmed this observation of pedestrian carelessness on Northgate. "I see near accidents many times, sometimes because of students own behavior. Students run across the street while cars are coming, or they cross without looking both ways," she said. Constructing sidewalks Jost said improving pedestrian safety on Northgate also requires better pedestrian facilities. "There are minimal sidewalks available in the area," she said. The city will soon construct a sidewalk in front of Tower Village apartments and PDK as part of an annual program constructing sidewalks in Irving, Jost said. "The project has been added to the 2004-05 sidewalk program, as a priority," she said. Besides installing a sidewalk, the city will take measures to encou...

6 February 9, 2005 The University News Arts & Entertainment Bright Eyes releases two new albums: a review of I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning and Digital Ash in a Digital Urn by Michelle Pagett Contributing Writer Conor Oberst is Bright Eyes. He is also a Nebraskan singer- songwriter turned indie-icon, a political activist, and owner of Saddle Creek, a record company which boasts bands such as The Faint and Cursive. It's an impressive re- sume for an art- ist who is only 25- Jan. 25, he released not one, but two full length al- bums to follow the critically ac- claimed 2002 release Lifted or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground. The much anticipat- ed albums—I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning and Digital Ash in a Digital Urn—display Oberst's versatility and talent as an artist. In contrast to the excessively layered cacophony of sounds in Lifted, I'm. Wide Awake, It's Morn- ings stripped-down, acoustic-folk at its core. It's an emotionally raw album about protest, lonelin...

February 9, 2005 The University News Arts & Entertainment Sea Inside powerful film Wedding Date poorly produced by F.S. Movie Reviewer Javier Bardem, who has already been nominated for one Oscar, gives another striking perfor- mance in Alejandro Amenabar's The Sea Inside (Angelika), a fact- based tale about a Spanish sailor who tries to win the right to end his life against legal and familial opposition after living for more than two decades paralyzed from the neck down. What saves the film from be- coming a maudlin network-qual- ity disease-of-the-week movie are Bardem, who invests the man with emotional variety and vivacity despite the physical limitations of the role, and the manner in which the script portrays his complex relationships with his family members, who strike very differ- ent attitudes toward his determi- nation to die. A quasi-romantic subplot involving two women drawn to him, on the other hand, never quite gels. BeUAsVU/y The Sea Inside isn't a perfect film, bu...

Ben Litt le and Kara Maggiore review' om ro e s new book by Ben Little Contributing Writer Tom Wolfe once again makes an impressive foray into controversy with his new novel, I am Charlotte Simmons. Taking on such thorny issues as college debauchery and athletic scandals, academic fraud, distinctive trends of opinion in the intellectual elite, homosexuality, corporate mismanagement, and race he knits together a story that serves as a useful inoculation against some significant problems in our current American Society Charlotte emerges from her back- woods hamlet of Sparta, N.C.?, seeking to liberate her mind at elite Dupont University Instead, the rampant sex, drinking, and vainglory she finds during her first semester come to tyrannize her al- most immediately It seems no small coincidence that Charlotte hails from a place called Sparta—where she has been instructed in s...

Now, things have not changed much. Everyone seems to follow a similar recipe: combine flowers, chocolate, and a typical dinner- date followed by a cinematic view- ing of a "romantic comedy," then a heaping dose of cuddling. Some may want Valentine's Day to more closely resemble UD's Groundhog Day, while oth- ers would prefer something more along the lines of Return to Me. Since the typical Valentine's formula may not be suitable for all, here are a few varia...

12 February 9, 2005 The University News Commentary LETTERS FROM ROME: Discovering Rome s special spots brings rewards to searching souls by Carol Mackiewicz Rome Correspondent A native Italian told me last semester to find the small, off-the- beaten-path places in Rome. "Sure, there are the important monuments and wonderful ba- silicas, but find what you like and make it special," he said. And within three weeks of being a guest in Rome, the city has surprised me in more ways than one, fulfilling desires I did not even realize existed in my searching soul. Everyone has his or her favorite section of the city to visit, a sec- tion most like him or her; so I have found my section. Call it recollection of a past life in the glory days of Rome or a connec- tion to mankind with the struggle and triumph of life, but the older section of the city stirs my blood and pulls at my curiosity. For in- stance, while walking the ruins of the Roman Forum and standing amidst what is left, one become...

February 9, 2005 The University News 13 Commentary Soldiers deserve support of their country in wartime by Monica Bond Features Editor While the justice of the Iraq war may be open to question, supporting the soldiers who are fighting the war is something that should never be questioned. Soldiers fight wars; soldiers die in wars; but soldiers are not respon- sible for wars. The suffering sol- diers endure in war is not simply the hardships men face on the battlefield, but also the smearing they receive from those who do not support the war. The Church has very strict requirements for a just war, which were first enunciated by St. Au- gustine. These conditions must be met and whether the combat in Iraq fulfills these requirements is debatable. EWTN.com explains the Church's Just War doctrine as follows: "[...the] Just War doc- trine gives certain conditions for the legitimate exercise of force, all of which must be met: '1. the damage inflicted by the aggressor on the nation or commu...

14 February 9, 2005 The University News Sports Where is God? A trip down washed-up, has-been memory lane by Alan Saweris Guest Columnist It seems every time I watch college sports, no matter if it is football, basketball, or baseball, the announcers are always hyping up some phenom who is going to make a huge splash in the pro level some day Have you ever stopped to take a look back at some of the young college studs who were going to be the heir to Jordan but never really amounted to anything? Now that I think about it, it's pretty rare when an Overly exposed college hoopster or quarterback with the cannon arm actually does reach success on the professional level. Since we're on the topic of Jordan's heirs, does anybody re- member Harold "Baby Jordan" Miner? The highlight of his profes- sional career was winning the NBA Dunk Contest as a rookie, but since then, I haven't heard anything about what he is up to nowadays.

February 9, 2005 The University News 15 Sports Hoggies thump J. St. homas Houston by Chris Botto Contributing Writer The sun shone down on a can- vas chaotically speckled green to brown. Within the chaos, white lines produced order and direc- tion, acting as arrows guiding the Hoggies to a spectacular showcase of size and speed. UD broke from their circle to see a motley crew clad in black from the University of St. Thomas in Houston. UD wasted little time, capi- talizing off the first kickoff. St. Thomas knocked-on, giving the Groundhogs a scrum from 45 meters out. Dallas attacked on the strong side, using quick hands to work the ball the width of the pitch. The attack forced St. Thomas to commit extra men to the rucks, allowing the Hoggies to switch direction and find sophomore winger Phil Danaher on the out- side. Danaher took the ball in full stride with nothing but daylight and glory in his path. After a 25-meter sprint to the try zone, Danaher touched the ball down for the Hog...

Naomi Schaefer Riley, author of God on the Quad, said religious universities are leaving an impact on America's moral fiber when she spoke at a lecture last week. John Schuler/ University News "Students at these colleges are trying to live by a set of established rules, usually rules that are set down in Scripture," she said. In secular schools, however, students study ethics in order to develop reasoning that validates their behavior and actions, whether moral or not, Riley said. For students at secular schools, the study of ethics is "primarily about finding a clever solution to a problem. [Whereas for stud...

February 16, 2005 The University News 5 News hristian author advocates the simple life style by Monica Tomutsa Contributing Writer Christians must live frugally, Fr. Thomas Dubay, author of Happy Are You Poor, said in a lecture last week. Dubay presented the audience with seven reasons for Christians to live frugally Every adult has one, two, or even three consuming concerns, and the concerns can become a god to the person. Devoting too much concern to one's material possessions is equal to worshiping them; and God did not intend for "Jesus and Mary are models of all good. Jesus chose to be born in a stable, and He died posses- sionless. "Throughout His life, Jesus taught a lesson of simplicity," he said. Another reason for frugality is that all men are called to be pilgrims and pilgrims practice frugality, Dubay said. "All men are pilgrims on the way to the fatherland. We do not belong to this earth but are merely passing through," he said. Pilgrims usually do not have many materia...

The idea was developed by Helczebiah Hawkins, the richest man in town who unfortuantely had an ugly daughter whose lack of suitors almost destined her to the life of an old maid. Hekzebiah lined up all the eligible men in town and shot off his gun. When the gun was fired, the men knew to run for their lives and their freedom as hopeful young women entered the race. Helczebiah's plan was successful and Sadie managed to catch her man. Since then, unwed young women embraced the idea of taking the lead in courtship. Friday night, UD women partook in the American tradition but with a European flair. This year's Sadie Hawkins dance theme of Discotheque reminded past Romers of their...

February 16, 2005 The University News 7 Features The real Father Maguire by Thomas Fagan Contributing Writer "On Dec. 23, 1970, at 5:37 p.m., after Mass in Old St. Mary's Church in San Francisco's China Town, I knew that God was call- ing me to be a Cistercian. No question about it. I knew," Fr. Robert Maguire, UD English professor, said. Maguire grew up in San Fran- cisco;, Calif, with his younger brother, Terry. As an undergradu- ate, he attended University of San Francisco along with his friend Fr. James Lehrberger, UD philosophy professor and Cistercian monk. In 1970, when Maguire was a graduate student at the University of Dallas, Lehrberger joined the Cis- tercians. Maguire laughing- ly told how, when he would visit n]im~ at the Abbey, the Cistercians were setting "spiritual traps" for him to join the order, such as: al- lowing him to visit with his friend, Brother James; eat breakfast there; and chat with the monks—none of which was ordinarily permitted. Then, on Maguire's bi...

This "jury," if it exists, doubtless consists of intellectual and literary luminaries and so will probably take its time in reaching a decision. The court of public opinion, though, is much more immediate in its decision-making, and though it has remained mum on the subject of Wolfe's literary greatness, it has, since the 1960s, judged him, at the very least, a great controversialist. His latest novel—whatever its merits and flaws may be—has caused rea...

This inescapable moral element can be conveyed to the reader in an artful or in a baldly didactic manner, and it is in the manner of the con- veying, Kenney said, that we judge the artist. "Take the Da Vinci Code, for instance," she said. "It has a moral component. It, in fact, is propagan- distic; it appeals to popular anti- Catholic viewpoints and attempts to convince the reader of the validity of those viewpoints." But the book's anti-Catholicism was not why it was such a chore for her to read the book (at the recommendation of one of her graduate students). No. Her primary objections were aesthetic ("It is just so badly written! The thought is so puer- ile...and the English is so bad!"). In fact, Kenney said, it is not unheard of that art and propaganda can coexist in a creative work. An obvious example of such a work, she said, is Spenser's F...
