The University News News November 13, 2007 — 5 Cuban art exhibit "Historias" opens on campus Michelle Bcsumcm CONTRIBUTING WRITER On Nov. 2, the Beatrice M.

The University News November 13, 2007 — 7 AMERICA from page 1 demagogues struggling to put on bigger and better shows. The idea that politicians must do what needs to be done in national affairs has largely been replaced by total subjugation to the "popular will." Dr. Thurow lamented that the Constitution is hardly ever looked at any more, replaced by political polls. Campaigns used to be ruled by the political party, not the candidate, Dr. Illurow said. This allowed for greater restraint on popular demagogues. Now, neither party sees that the current electoral system removes restraints on the president and allows for an imperial presidency. What is to be done? Dr. Thurow advised that Americans become aware of what democracy truly is and why restraint is needed upon both government and upon themselves. Friday's lecturers, Dr. John Lewis, English professor at SMU, and UD politics professor Dr. Richard Dougherty, picked up the discussion in a panel moderated by Dr. Susan Hanssen. Dr. ...

8— November 13, 2007 The University To the editors, I am disappointed, and I am surprised to find myself more disappointed with the College Republicans than with Cindy Sheehan. Before anything else, I ought to make my own biases clear: I am a Republican and a hard-line conservative. I don't need to apologize for that; I merely acknowledge that my biases are there. Nonetheless, I attended both the talk given by the College Republicans and the talk with Ms. Sheehan that was sponsored by the Economics Department. The College Republican's lecture was going to be about the effects of liberal bias on other universities. This caught my eye for two reasons: first, we were going to hear about biases, and secondly, we were going to hear about other universities. Mr. Van Dyke surprised me when he introduced his talk by showing us all a picture of Mrs. Sheehan and then setting his Coca Cola down on her face. Cindy Sheehan, he assured us, was nothing more than "a piece of scum." Weren't we suppo...

News E EDITOR November 13, 2007 — 9 The University News received a large volume of letters to the editor in response to Cindy Sheehan's recent visit to campus. Because of this overwhelming reply, the features section of this week's newspaper is devoted to presenting these letters in full. controversial topic. While I do riot agree with anything that Ms. Sheehan represents, I also attend a university for "independent thinkers." How can our students flourish in the pursuit of truth when the views expressed by those with whom we do not agree are silenced? Respectfully Alex Hastings To the editors, I am proud to proclaim myself part of the student body of the University of Dallas. Despite the fear tactics employed by the far-right sect at our university, Thursday's event with Ms. Cindy Sheehan was marked by unparalleled attendance of the student body. The closed minded, far-right sect at our university spent the days preceding the arrival of Ms. Sheehan attempting to scare the student b...

Sports 10 —November 13, 2007 The University News Men s basketball team prepares for season Anthony Garrett CONTRIBUTING WRITER With the season home opener just days away on November 16th versus Huntingdon College, what better time than now to get to know the team? UD students might have noticed a lot of new faces this year because Coach Brian Stanfield had a strong recruiting class of ten new players, including seven freshmen. Freshman point guards include Joe Edison and Michael Ricketts, two naturally skilled guards with unlimited potential. The other freshman guards are comprised of Khym Wilson, Noah Pettit, Daniel Young, and Coleman Hengesbach, who poses a serious threat from behind the three point line. New additions Austin McAvoy and Michael Natale provide needed strength and height on the inside. Jeff Pritchard, a quick and versatile point guard, and Michael Flood are two sophomore transfers who make an instant impact. As senior sharpshooter Jerome Greener said, "Overall the n...

The University News November 13, 2007 — 11 Should the Barbarian be carrying more often? A statistically-minded look at the Cowboys carry-splitting arrangement TC Fleming SPORTS EDITOR With the Cowboys out to the sort of start not seen since the times when it seemed like a reasonable idea to put Michael Jackson on stage with 3,500 children for a Super Bowl halftime show, fans have precious little to quibble about. Agreeing with coaching decisions, however, will never be as fun with disagreeing with them, so the masses have locked in on the timeshare arrangement between Marion Barber III (henceforth referred to here as Marion the Barbarian, or just the Barbarian) and Julius Jones. Shouldn't Barber be getting more if not all of the opportunities? As a group of intellectuals, UD students know better than to examine this question in its subjective context $ Barber makes his case iri a game against the Philadelphia Eagles. only. In statistical analysis, an answer can be found. The argumen...

Arts & Entertainment 12 —November 13, 2007 The University News Magnif i cen t Country, Solid "Europa," Mediocre "Claus" FS CONTRIBUTING WRITER No Country for Old Men Writing-directing brothers Joel and Ethan Coen have been in a creative slump since "O Brother Where Art Thou" (2000), but they return triumphantly to form with their adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's borderlands chase tale "No Country for Old Men" (Magnolia, Northpark), a bleak but beautiful modern film noir about a young Texan who steals a case of cash he finds at the site of a botched drug deal deep in the desert and is pursued not only by the local sheriff but by a seemingly unstoppable hit-man. Josh Brolin, who recently made waves with his sterling supporting turn as a corrupt cop in "American Gangster," proves a stalwart, loose- limbed anti-hero, and Tommy Lee Jones puts his iconic image to splendid use as the taciturn lawman who finds the level of carnage wrought by the modern criminal culture impossible to comp...

ampus Living 14 —November 13, 2007 The University News Health & Swellness Ibogaine: An alternative remedy for drug addiction? Paeter Wait COLUMNIST One out of every four Americans between age 26 and 34 has used cocaine before. It is conservatively estimated that there are over two million cocaine addicts and almost 600,000 heroin addicts that need treatment in the United States today. Both of these drugs are highly addictive and a heroin addict will pay between $150 and $200 daily to maintain his addiction. In the sixties, Howard Lotsof, a heroin addict, was offered a hallucinogenic drug called ibogaine to try Lotsof accepted and after entering a dream-like state for several hours, Lotsof woke up and was surprised to find that he no longer had any cravings for heroin, nor did he experience the painful withdrawal symptoms that normally accompany breaking oneself from the drug—he didn't even want it anymore. Looking for a connection, he convinced six of his heroin addict friends t...

Commentary The University News November 13, 2007 — 15 UD shows its true colors, brings in Iraq expert Bennett Rawicki COMMENTARY EDITOR In the aftermath of a week rife with controversy over the visit by Cindy Sheehan, the foundation of UD has not changed. Tensions flared and emotions ran high, but outside the online battlefield of Facebook posts and school-wide emails, UD held true to its core belief in the merits of reasoned discussion. And unfortunately, most of the school missed it. Academic freedom shined Thursday, from the Art Village. The remnants of the enthralled crowds from earlier in the day took their seats to consider the Iraq War with the help of an expert on foreign pol icy, Dr. John Lenczowski. Dr. Lenczowski's credentials needed no questioning: he served as President Reagan's advisor on Soviet affairs and founded a premierforeign policy graduate school in Washington, D.C. With insightful analysis he delved into the failings of Iraq War policy, explaining that the U.S...

These pre-health students applied for and received scholarships from the RHAP to work at La Clinica Esperanza during the month of December. In the process they will not only gain valuable experience, but also the opportunity to make a difference in one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere. The Roatan Health Assistance Project was conceived of and founded by UD's own Theresa Tran in 2006. "I started RHAP in the spring of 2006.../' says Tran, "as a [junior] pre med student, I was looking for medical volunteer opportunities, and eventually found a clinic in Roatan, Honduras.

Sports 8 —November 20, 2007 The University News Critiquing the criticism TC Fleming SPORTS EDITOR Over the past week, I have encountered two of the most thoughtful pieces I've had the pleasure of reading. Both were constructed well and delivered clearly. And both were excellent examples of everything that is wrong about the way the new media covers sports. The pieces in question, titled "What's Wrong with Sports Illustrated?" and "This is SportsCenter?" appeared in the superb online magazine, Slate. As one might infer, both dealt with the flaws of the two arguably biggest juggernauts of the sports media universe. Both dealt with their subjects in measured tones and admitted past admiration for the entities in question. As isolated pieces, I highly suggest reading both. As part of an overall trend, though, they are startling. The internet has given a voice to innumerable intelligent and humorous individuals who would not otherwise have such a venue. A disquieting number of these indi...
