Opinions The Rambler February 21, 2002 3 Letter to the Editor Residential Life responds to thumbs down For the last two weeks Residential Life has not done well in your Rambler Ratings section. 1 am concerned about the image this gives my department and would like to address those concerns to you. The Feb. 14th issue (love the color, nice touch) gave us a "thumbs down" for not having the phone answered at the front desk in the residence halls. We cannot force students to work their hours at the desk. We work with student schedules when possible. We currently have some hours that are not covered at the front desk in O.C. Hall that may result in that phone not being answered. However, messages are always returned or passed on to the residents. The Feb. 7th issue gave us a "thumbs down" for letting Quizno's close early. The weather was not the reason for closing early. Dining Services has asked us if Quizno's could close early when business dies down. When this happens, they are to cal...

4 The Rambler February 21, 2002 Campus Life 'Net deals can help you keep more in your wallet bill barnes I like the current commercial for Capital One, the one that asks you, "What's in your wallet?" What I don't like is my standard answer—nothing bigger than a 5, and usually only one bill with that elevated numerical value. I'm poised to break the record for the Texas cash drought. It hasn't rained anywhere close to my wallet since Moses left for higher ground. So I've been spending my spare time trying to stretch the few dollars I have, to pro- vide what I just can't get along without. I shop for deals; yeah, I know that's a lot of work, but I don't actually get out of my chair, so that's cool. I tried kicking back on the couch a couple of times, too, but the monitor falls on the floor every time I doze off. There's just no such thing as a perfect world. Anyway, between the infrequent naps and the frequent seizure from pizza with- drawal, I check out prices on the Internet for hig...

Sports The Rambler February 21, 2002 5 Ram's basketball team is bound for Detroit Wesleyan's men's basketball team was given the second seed in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Division I National Championship Tournament. This comes as no surprise to most fans and even some play- ers. The team has held the No. 2 spot in the nation for quite some time now. Regardless, it became official Tuesday as Coach Terry Waldrop received the news. Earning the sec- ond seed in the tournament will have its advantages. The team will receive a first round bye, which means that they will bypass the first round. This will give the squad more rest and more time to scout their oppo- nent.

8 The Rambler February 21, 2002 Entertainment The Queen awakens Jaclyn Gonzales ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR Viewers are bloodthirsty to see the upcom- ing film Queen of the Damned. The film is based on Anne Rice's novel. Queen of the Damned from the Vampire Chronicles. It is a follow-up to the 1994 box office hit Interview with the Vampire starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. As the title indicates, the film's focus is on the 4,000-year-old queen of the Vampires, Akasha (Aaliyah). Though it is not a direct con- tinuation of the Vampire Lestat, his experiences from the earlier novel and film are incorporated in Queen of the Damned. Lestat (Stuart Townsend) has risen from a lingering slumber and his long lasting thirst is quenched with fame. Lestat reinvents himself as a rock star. His invigorating voice awakens the slumber- ing ancient Queen Akasha from her crypt beneath the Arctic ice. She has long waited for the time to rise again and seize dominion over the world. With Lestat at her side, ...

2 The Rambler February 28, 2002 News Can we take the sting out of the W word?' This article contains controver- sial subject matter and words which some readers may find offensive. The Rambler wel- comes all comments from its readers. Donna Haney NEWS EDITOR During a recent episode of Boston Public, Fox Network tackled the controversial subject, the use of the word "nigger.." The show, which is set is an urban high school, posed the question, "Why is it acceptable for a black person to address another black person as 'nigger' or 'nigga,' but it is not acceptable for a white person to use the same term, even when said in the same context?" Boston Public further stirred the mirky waters by having a white professor introduce "Nigger: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word." a book written by Randall Kennedy, a Harvard Law School professor, who happens to be black. Trying to explain why it is different, in an essay, Kennedy cites Clarence Majors, author of a Dictionary of Afro-America...

Opinions The Rambler February 28, 2002 3 Science must progess, not rest Bill Barnes Now I'm not a rocket scientist, but someone has to tell those people what we expect of them. These days scientists are so spe- cialized and unexciting that there is no decent source for getting those great predictions of the approaching Utopia or impending Armageddon. Remember Carl Sagan? The late astronomer wasn't afraid of the universe or afraid to give his opinion. If you read an article about science today, all ————— you get is "We're not sure, we're still testing, 20 years from now maybe we might know more" or "one day this discovery could revolutionize every- thing or then again it may turn out to be nothing." Now that's pretty exciting. You can really get a grip on that prediction. That's a veggie burger in text, no sauce; hold the fries, water to drink, and go sit in the corner. How about a real old fashioned revolutionary development for a change. How about a real space station for example, ...

4 The Rambler February 28, 2002 Campus Life President to address students at forums Raun Shepard SPECIAL TO THE RAMBLER Questions abound. Everyone has an opinion. But what's really happening across our campus? What's happening to our organ- izations? What's hap- pening in administra- tion? Why are people being laid off? Why? Why? Why? The ques- tions seem to never cease. They have been carelessly shuffled across campus, whis- _____ pered in hall ways, from the halls of residency to the halls of educa- tion. The rumor mill reportedly has full employment, as the future of Wesleyan has been on the lips of the multitude. So, what's really occurring? I'm sure you all want to know and understandably so. As a measure to quell the rumors and speculation that has taken place recently, the President's Office has collaborated with the Office of Student Life and the Student Government Association (SGA) to create a forum for students' questions to be addressed. President Jeffcoat will be in atte...

Sports The Rambler February 28, 2002 5 Former Wesleyan golfer wins Tucson Open Marc Nettles STAFF WRITER Ian Leggatt, a member of the 1990 Texas Wesleyan University graduating class, did something last Sunday that no other Ram alumnus has ever done. Leggatt, 36, is a former member of the Wesleyan Golf team and plays on the Professional Golf Association Tour. According to an article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Leggatt has been on the PGA Tour for more than 13 years and had yet to win an event, until his final round 8-under 64 clinched his first victory at the Tucson Open in Tucson, Ariz. Leggatt ended the tourna- ment with a 72-hole total of 20- under 268. the lowest score at the Tucson Open since David Frost finished with a total of 266 in 1988. The victory awarded Leggatt with a $540,000 cash-in. That amount surpassed his combined earnings from all 13 of his previ- ous professional seasons. That win ranks him 13 on the money list with a total of $635,229, which should clinch h...

2 The Rambler March 7, 2002 News Forum, from page 1 "We implemented changes. There were people not performing. Some were let go," Jeffcoat said. "That left a hole in freshman admis- sions. "We have hired [some] students who have graduated to be freshmen counselors. In the past, we had two or three folks, now we have four and are hiring a fifth. We are also searching for a new director." he said. "The biggest thing 1 need to do to impact students is the renovation of the residence halls, especially O.C. Hall." Jeffcoat also talked about the anticipated reopening of Ann Waggoner Hall. The 650-seat audito- rium is expected to be completed sometime in April. In addition, plans are underway to convert the Law Sone Fine Arts Center into a theater in the round. "The first 16 [of 19] months that I have been here have not been fun.

Opinions The Rambler March 7, 2002 3 Just imagine ... if I were a Scrambler writer If you look the restraints off me when I write, oh my, what I would say to shock people. But unfortunate- ly, I'm held in check by my editors, the university and my mother. By the way, contrary to hopes and specula- tion. I've yet to be fired by The Rambler. If you don't know, then let me be the first to enlight- en you on Wesleyan's newest campus pub- lication, the fly-by-night "Scrambler." This newsletter has mysteriously (wink, wink) found its way into the high traffic areas of our university in hopes of grabbing readers by the throat. It's an over the top collection of fic- tional stories meant to mock reality, play on common news stories, and poke fun at The Rambler. Or perhaps it's not about that, depend- ing on whom you talk to. And no. I didn't write one thing in it. I'm too "big time" and too employed by ~~~~ The Rambler.
