NiK« MM o- 8 February 12, 2003 Entertainment The Rambler Almost* Plaid is et wttsiedl hi© Jaclyn Gonzales ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR Almost Plaid was the performance of a performance. The joint BFA Project pre- sented by Eddie Holmes and Devlin DeCutler had audiences rolling in laugh- ter with their one-night performance held on Feb. 10. The evening began with anxiety, which was eased with the support of the families, friends, students and faculty who trickled into the renovated Martin Hall. Almost Plaid is an adaptation to Forever Plaid: The Heavenly Musical Hit. The voice-over of Eric Briggs, accompanied by bassist Jason Stuart, and pianist Hans Grim set the plot. A four-man singing group returns from heaven to perform the show they never got to do in life. Jinx, Franky, Smudge and Sparky dreamed of becoming their idols such as The Four Aces, The Four Lads and The Crew Cuts. The group was hit by a bus filled with "parochial virgins"en route to pick up their plaids for their first big gi...

He will also be teaching a world percussion work- shop on campus in July. "Tuition is $275 which covers drumming and per- cussion from countries around the world," he said. Logozzo got started in the percussion field at an early age because his parents were musicians. There was always a band practicing at his house. Of all the instru- ments at his disposal, the drums fascinated him. He has been playing for 25 years. Logozzo is a pro with exotic percussion instruments such as the steel drums.

The Rambler Opinions February 19, 2003 3 Don't call me nigger or nigga; either word is degrading in whatever context Levi Walls Editor's note: This column contains language that may be offensive to some readers. Don't call me nigger. I'm not a nigger. I'm not the nigger. And I'm definitely not your nigger. Webster's dictionary defines "nigger" as being "a person of low intelligence; a foolish person." The word in the mind of the individual means something complete- ly different. It is a derogatory name for an African-American. The Webster's dictionary version almost makes the word's usage sound legitimate. Was this Webster's intention? "What's up, nigger?" Are you insulted? If not, you should be. Is it that difficult to recognize the hatred in the word? Some would argue that the word's use is acceptable because I am a person of color. Others will ————————— argue that the word has evolved. Are we African-Americans to believe that the more we use the word among each other, the less in...

4 February 19, 2003 Campus Li fe The Rambler Where's the spirit? i came from a rather small school called Lake Worth High School where 1 graduated in a class of 85 students Needless to say. there was- n t much to do in that small town. except go Marc Nettles to a the school games. 1 rarely missed any. probably because I was usually in uniform on the field, on the track or on the court, in most of them. We had a relatively atypical mascot, the bullfrog. We were the only high school in America, at the time, to have that mascot. And we were proud of our indi- viduality and our colors. 1 still have a frog collection that could rival Rasheed Wallace's collec- tion of technical fouls. The point I'm trying to make is that we never had a problem with school spirit. So obviously, coming from my green-, silver- and black-clad alma mater to what this dreary campus calls school spirit is a huge and depressing step down. I realize this isn't high school. 1 know students have rent and jobs and cl...

The Rambler Campus Life February 19, 2003 5 School spirit, from page 4 ball team is looking to do well this season, thanks to a great recruitment class. Some say this year's Softball team looks better than last year's USCAA National Championship Tournament Final Four finishers. The same can be said for our men's basketball team, which is currently making a great run at the national championships, as well. Wesleyan is also once again a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, NAIA, which should be cause enough for some sparked interest. Now, I might be able to understand if our teams weren't doing so well, but they are, especially at home. Our men's basketball team is 9-1 at home. David Johnson, the 6'9" junior forward, is possibly the single most entertaining player in the game to watch. And we have him right in our front yard. Not coming to see him play is like having a check in the mail for crazy loot and not checking it because you don't feel like it, or y...

6 February 19, 2003 Shorts The Rambler Lady Rams pick up two wins against Brookhaven Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF The Wesleyan softball team improved to 3-1 on their young season with the pair of W's they notched against Brookhaven College on Feb. 15 at Sycamore Park. The 9-1 and 8-2 wins went to Cyndi Obsivac and Amanda Kashuba respectively, who both went the dis- tance on the mound on a very windy and bitterly cold afternoon. Though Obsivac gave up first blood as a Lady Bear scored on a sin- gle to left in the top half of the fourth inning, she came right back to force two infield pop-outs to end Brookhaven's bases loaded scoring attempt. In the bottom portion of the same frame, Monica Barrilleaux led off and sent a screamer up the middle. Danah Merck followed that with a liner to right that scored Barrilleaux from first and left Merck on third, where she was later picked off. Catcher Christi Mize reached base and advanced to third, where she scored on an unsuc- cessful 2-6-4 doub...

News 2 March 5, 2003 The Rambler Racist events at top universities pinpoint struggle for diversity Dee Flowers NEWS EDITOR The University of Texas at Austin, one of the top schools in the nation and the largest in Texas, has been one of schools in the spotlight lately as it strug- gles with diversity issues. On Jan. 20, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, an unknown UT student egged a statue of Dr. King on their campus, which black students lobbied to get in 1999. Almost two weeks later there was a fra- ternity theme party where members wore black paint on their faces and mocked stereotypes. Also in the news was a fraternity party on Halloween 2002 of a similar theme with attendees wearing costumes mimicking rap singers' attire with wigs and masks with exaggerated racial fea- tures. The two fraternities in question are Kappa Alpha and Phi Gamma Delta. Last month at Texas A&M in College Station, some students planned a "Blackface Party" at a dorm around Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day...

The Rambler Opinions March 5, 2003 3 As Americans, we should stand behind our leader in a time of crisis, not against him It is perplexing to observe the ftory response toward President Bush for his adamant stand against Iraq. Why do many Americans distrust Bush's views on protecting the United States, as if we are talking about a negotiable situation that will resolve itself with time? Anti-war advocates insist that the repercussions of war on our country are reasons enough to back away from invading. However, to merely examine our national defense as another political issue of partisan debate is to misjudge a profound reality: The government's preserva- tion of our national security is the role of government. No wonder the Bush administration is exceedingly concerned about the enormous threat currently looming — a dictator who breaks treaties, harbors illegal weapons of mass destruction, lies to the world, has proved murderously dangerous in the past, threatens hos- tility for the...

The Rambler Sports March 5, 2003 5 Seniors lead Rams in loss to Bacone Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF The men's basketball team honored its three seniors, Aaron Whaley, James Whitfield and Kenneth Johnson, on Monday night before the last regular season contest against Bacone College, whom they beat 98-77 Jan. 27. Those same three athletes led the way on both ends of the hardwood. Whaley scored a team-high 16 points, while Johnson and Whitfield both ended up with 11 points each. Whitfield hit three shots from beyond the arc to etch his name in the Wesleyan history books. With a gracious outburst from the crowd, his third money tied the record for all-time three pointers in the university's history. The veterans' efforts were not enough as the Warriors of Bacone held a fairly commanding lead for most of the contest and won by a tally of 72-64 to drop the Rams to 21-11 and 13-7 in Red River Conference Play- After Bacone scored the first bucket, Wesleyan took over behind the leadership of...

Among them are those shown in the maker's marks: Art Student Exhibition, which opened last week to honor several outstanding artists with awards. Art majors and non-majors con- tributed to the 31-piece competition and exhibit. The only prerequisite to the com- petition was that the art students' work must have been from within the past 12 months. Students could submit as many pieces as desired to the competition. The vast array of artwork was derived from a multitude of media such as painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, photography and computer graphics. Artwork varied among the 12 stu- dents who participated in the exhibit. Images of Picasso, Matisse, Khalo and Betty Boop, sculptures of the body to photograms of objects and computer graphics of New York illustrate the eyeful...

News Universities to develop biological warfare plan 2 March 13,2003 The Rambler Whitney Fowler CAMPUS LIFE EDITOR With bioterrorism introduced as a potential threat to America, government agencies are seeking to inform the nation through federal and state levels about the best methods to pre- pare for such attacks. Like many uni- versities, Texas Wesleyan has no poli- cy specifically relat- ing to prepare for the threat of bioterrorism. According to Vice President of Administrative Services Steve Roberts, Wesleyan has normal emergency guide- lines including evacuation plans and med- ical assistance. For the university to for- mulate any plan specifically relating to bioterrorism preparedness independent of local and state agencies would be essen- tially meaningless, he said. Roberts explained that before such a policy would be outlined, Wesleyan would need to wait to hear from "While our first responders are prepared, it's essential that you,as residents of Fort Worth, are prepared...

The Rambler Opinions March 13, 2003 3 Reality TV provides an escape from real life, morals and civilization A new genre has emerged in network television these days. The addictive nature of reality television has completely engulfed prime time. It is obvious why so many networks have chosen to implement such a large number of reality shows into their prime time lineups: reality TV is easy, cheap and makes junkies out of normal television watchers. As BusinessWeek Online refers to it, Reality TV is "net- work crack." The success of CBS's Survivor seemed to open the green eyes of the networks to a new kind of success. Spoiled actors, actresses and screenwriters would be pushed aside. Americans were more than willing to become instant stars for much less money. But where do we draw the line? We were captivated by the bug-eating on Fear Factor. American Idol had everyone talking about the newest pop star (from whom 1 have yet to hear a decent song.) And Joe Millionaire brought in the la...
