- Thanks for nothing, Clinton (Mike Marchand Questionable Freedoms 2000)
To those of you who constantly felt that William Jefferson Clinton was the dogged victim of a "vast right-wing conspiracy," the events of Slick Willy's final days in office should serve as a wake-up call. They come as no surprise to those of us who already knew he was a moral bottom-feeder.
- Overwhelmed by technology trends (Anna Barbour Get a Life)
Well, two Y2Ks are over and done without apocalyptic mayhem. But is the entire new millennium destined to pass by as smoothly? I was really expecting a change of the social order a couple weeks ago, you know? I was ready.

The athletic clubs of Notre Dame allow students and professors to reach that next level in their livelihoods by rounding their buttockses and molding their attitudes with the hopes of squeezing out a better-formed person.
