Media needs to recognize [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 April 1999
Media needs to recognize A view, from thelighthouse We, at the Beacon, would like to express our views on the shooting that occurred in Littleton, Colorado, two Tuesdays ago. We all (eel that this was a great tragedy and proper steps should be taken to ensure a similiar event from occurring in the future. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families during this hard time. We also feel that the manner in which the media exploited the situation was immoral and inappropriate. It was not necessary to print detailed photographs of the injured students, and it was definitely not necessary to air the funeral of one of the victims on television. The funeral should be a personal event - it should only be attended by the victims' friends and family, not by a rude and ignorant media. Also, we feel that by exploiting this tragedy to such as an extent as the media has will impact upon other youths attending high school in the nation. This will cause students to think that if they ...
Letter to the editor: Student fed up with Food and Housing [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 April 1999
Letter to the editor: Student fed up with Food and Housing Dear Editor: I am writing in response to Angela Donahue's and Tom Henry's letter to the editor. In this letter, the two complained about Natalie Gagliano's column entitled "Waz up now, Housing?". The two brown-nosing employees' first defense of Housing was that Bruno's and Dobbins are mass producing food services. Consequently, they say the food served at Bruno's and Dobbins loses some of its "home-cooked quality". True, but this doesn't explain why the food tastes like a@#! Next, the two pointed out that it becomes monotonous eating the same thing all the time and that Dobbins avoids this monotony by rotating its menu on a four week cycle. Yeah, that's all nice and great, but hello - serving the same menu for four weeks straight is monotonous, especially when this menu includes half-cooked omelettes, nauseating pork fried rice, burgers and chicken that are as edible as rubber, and bread that's harder than cement. No...
Too late for blame [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 April 1999
Too late for blame The Critic JQN ^ STUBBS Once again, in the wake of another violent disturbance with many left dead, Americans are forced to try and explain to themselves just exactly how such a massacre could happen within the borders of the world's most prosperpous nation. Gun control advocates point the blame toward the NRA; the NRA and its right wing allies point toward violence in popular culture, and popular culture gives Right Wing America the finger. The truth must be that nobody really knows why Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 of their classmates and wounded 24 others last Tuesday at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. The diary of one of the shooters revealed that they had planned this attack for a good bit of time before it was acted out. According to CNN, the diary also revealed that Har ris andKlebold hoped to kill at least 500 people during the attack, and then hijack a plane and crash it into New York City. Some news agencies have reporte...
Crazy is just a state of mind [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 April 1999
Crazy is just a state of mind A_ FlowerAnJKe Gard£Ko£Life ___ SHANNONWEBER Well, the year has finally come to an end. Finals are just around the corner. I don't know about you, but I feel like this year went by very fast. Now it's time to say our good-byes and go back home. I guess it's my turn to explain the title of my column. A Flower in the Garden of Life. Metaphorically speaking, the flower is a person growing and becoming in this huge garden called "life". In our lives we experience hardships like pricker-bushes, that cause us much physical pain. There is the muddy muck that we sometimes step in—it happens. We encounter rotten vegetables that make the garden dismal. Of course, there is always that terrible gardener who seems to make the garden worse. In spite of the hardships we deal with in life, we have rays of sunshine, like our families and friends (maybe even a professor), that inspire us flowers to grow. We also have the raindrops that nurture us and keep us heal...
Letter to the editor: Reaction to cartoon [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 April 1999
Letter to the editor: Reaction to cartoon For the second week in a row, I am writing to express my disgust with the school newspaper, but since I now realize how ignorant the staff is, this will be very short. Last week I wrote a letter to the editor defending Housing and Food Services. Since the Beacon has turned into a paper that is determined to bash Housing and Food on a weekly basis, I decided I would defend Housing for a change. I was notified early in the week that my article would appear in Thursday's edition. When I read Thursday's paper, I took note of the letter I previously had written. But to my surprise, the staff of the Beacon had rudely and very inappropriately placed a cartoon of a customer in a food service line being asked if they like their roaches fried or steamed. I. and many other people, noticed the placement of this cartoon, and ALL have commented on how inconsiderate it was. The last time I checked I still had every right to voice my opinion without...
