For those t• ot you musing, "I wonder if Gore won?", please cease reading this article immedi- ately, step slowly out of your cave, tak- ing caution not to bump your head, and pro- , ceed to the nearest news stand and purchase your local newspaper of choice. Officials estimated, based upoh performance in early voting, that approximately 8 percent of the peo- ple in Texas actually casted their ballots on the 17 proposed amend- ments to the State Constitution. It is amazing to me that so few Texans opt to exercise a right they have that separates them from many other people throughout the world. Our country was founded so that ordinary people would have a legitimate say in how they are governed. We take the precious right to vote for granted today, rarely con- sidering that many men and women have; given their lives throughout our hist...

Passion to teach makes instructors effective Donna Haney STAFF WRITER A recent article in The Fori Worth Star-Telegram, "The col- lege class courtesy controversy", by Allan Saxe, a University of Texas at Arlington political sci- ence professor, lamented the lack of common courtesy shown to college professors by their stu- dents. Manners and classroom eti- quette are on the decline, he said. The trend of the current "What's in it. for me?" generation is to withhold any form of respect until they deem it has been earned. Unfortunately, this is as true within the university classroom as it is in the real world, Saxe said. Many of today's students do not hesitate to arrive late and, leave early from lectures. When students slay in class, they often engage in guilt-free,eat- ing, drinking and gossiping with friends. (( Saxe said, "Students want to be enter- tained, inspired and educated at the same time. But all profes- sors are not really good teachers. And they should not have to be. S...

Jovemner fcrs lir >. ■4 | b: ' Bs ' ' I Professional baseball economics out of control H II I fl- Caklos Medina Major League Baseball has faced a number of problems over the cen- tury. The sport has witnessed bribery, forfeitures, strikes and season can- cellations. But what truly threatens the future of pro- fessional* baseball is the league's senseless salary struc- ture, ■ In the past 10 years, the highest paid ballplayers have seen their salaries jump from $3 million to $15 million. The staggering increases in salary have left the smaller market teams at a disadvantage when it comes to bidding on talent. Of the major professional sports in America, baseball is the only sport in which a salary cap is not implemented in order to create economic equality among the teams. What is truly alarming, though, is even the more success- ful teams in the league are looking to trade their star players in hopes of remaining economically com- petitive. . Take for instance the Texas Rangers. ...

The Fort Worth band, which recently opened for Who bassist John Entwistle at Caravan of Dreams, plays at least twice a month at the Pig and Whistle Pub in down- town Fort Worth. The band consists of drummer Danny Wilkerson, lead guitarist Jess Collins, rhythm guitarist Lannie Flowers, bassist Allan Davis and keyboardist Dan Zimmer. All five chip in on vocals. Logan Baker, soundman for the band, described The Waltons as "versatile enough to be an entertainment package from Sinatra to [punk group] Violent Femmes." The soinething-for-everyone play list works remarkably well, and the seemingly disparate selections run the musical gamut. Sixties Beatles and Stones mix in with 80s Cars, Clash and .Devo. The Jackson Five and Prince are included, as is Bob Dylan and more recent 90s hits. There are fB J...

The Rambler November 17, 1999 3 Humanities program needs reassessment Donna Haney As students, we walk into Wesleyan knowing we are required to take six hours of humanities. Over the years, many students have protested this requirement. Instructors tell us it is important for the develop- ment of well-rounded students to study ways in which certain values of other cultural matrix- es continue to affect the ________________ world today. l am one student who agrees with this line of reasoning. Professors like to tell us the purpose of the university is to teach students to doubt. By doubting rather than merely accepting infor- mation, we break free of old methods of rea- soning and we learn to critically analyze and cre- atively think for ourselves. We become those well-rounded indi- viduals they encouraged us to be. As wonderful as this educa- tional philosophy sounds, it is not the one being put into practice. Humanities students are told what value is the most important for each cu...

If you did, you are forgiven— this time. If you happened to be one of those people who paid the Pay-Per-View fee in order to watch this scam, then you are a fool. It's people like you who have con- tributed to the circus professional boxing has become. • Boxing was once a world-captivating event that matched two men of pride and power against each other. What boxing has become is a cheap, moneymaking scheme ruled by con men and cheaters. What was a sport with legendary names like Ali, Frazier, Louis and Robinson is now being tainted by such jokes as Tyson, ,'ANFO^ Carlos Medina Foreman and Ayala. The fight over the weekend was just a continuation of a decline that started a decade ago. And the public continues to pay to watch it. Tony Ayala was once a brilliant tight- er with a great future.

Previous to online auctions, the best way to sell such an item would be through a national record collectors magazine such as Goldmine or by attending a record collectors' convention.

'pinions The Rambler November 24, 1999 3 Learn about Christianity before judging Christians Michelle Johnson After four years at Wesley an, I was motivated to write about something that has been in my heart for quite some time. I've noticed that even though this is a supposedly Christian school, there seems to be a very negative view of God held by many on campus, both professors and stu- dents alike. Take just a moment to consider the following: 1) God is not a God of hate, but a God of love. Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord." As sinners, we all deserve to go to hell. But because of God's mercy and love for us, He sent His Son, Jesus, to live the perfect life none of us is capable of living, and to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. Now all we must do to accept His gift of eternal life is admit we are sin- ners and ask for God's forgive- ness. 2) Don't judge God by the actions of some judgmenta...

The Rambler November 24, 1999 5 NCAA football should have playoff system instead of bowls .#70^ i.'ttniiim* Carlos Medina I'm happy with college football. I'm a dedicated fan and I watch it nearly every weekend. But I really wish there was a playoff sys- tem, NCAA Division I football is the only sport that doesn't decide its champion on the field. College football leaves its champion up to a series of voter polls and a computer that no one understands. Why is there not a playoff? The NCAA insists that student athletes miss enough school with- out having a playoff. But the real reason is the same one that dictates everything in sports: money. I would be in favor of an eight team system. A system in which the polls and the computer rank- ings determine who is in and who is left watching until next season. The eight team playoff would occur after a maximum season of 10 games and would create a sea- son in which a team in the playoff would play a maximum of 13 games. "NCAA Division I fo...

EDITOR Sammie's Barbeque should be a his- torical landmark for anyone who loves red meat. 1 remember eating at Sammie's when I was a little kid. It was always fun to make a mess while eating its tender ribs, and now that I'm older it's still just as much fun. I recently introduced some of my friends to the Sammie's dining experience. We took advantage of the unseasonably warm November day and sat outside in the "Beer Garden." A word of warning though: if you're in a hurry to eat lunch, the service can be slow outside. Sammie's is in a barn-like building that replaced the original location when it burned down in the late 80s. The walls are decked with items of Texas culture like longhorns, neon beer signs and auto- graphed photos of country music singers. It's a very casual, open atmosphere that is typical of good barbeque joints. The bar is separated from the dining area by the glassed in checkou...
