- Robbed (Michelle Krupa Editor in Chief)
Saturday night, my housemates and I invited over a few friends. More than a hundred people showed up. We weren't surprised. The five of us who share a three-story Kramer house on East Washington Street are like the center of a wheel; our spokes lead to, among other things, The Observer, the ski team, Hall President's Council, London Program spring '99, Austria program '98-'99, the senior CHEG class and the art department. When we each invite a few friends, we expect a hundred people.
- The Confederate Flag should not fly (Jim Hennigan Guest Column)
While the Confederate battle flag is now widely recognized as a symbol of hatred, it wasn't always so controversial. It is, after all, the same flag that unceremoniously graced the roof of Bo and Luke Duke's 1969 Dodge Charger. As James Tuck's recent commentary demonstrated, to some the flag truly symbolizes the peculiar independence many Southerners cherish. Yet, for the key decisionmakers on both sides, the battle to remove it from atop the statehouse here in South Carolina is more of an opportunity for ego gratification, constituency building and getting quality time in the limelight than it is the pressing moral concern perceived by most South Carolinians.

- Candidates: Prove your pride (Letter to the Editor )
Last Saturday the Belle's Basketball team won its first game. I was proud to share in this moment as they celebrated to "Hallelujah!" They played with their hearts and the crowd knew how much this meant to them. As the clock ticked, the crowd became louder chanting "defense" along with the bench. It may have seemed minor to the students seated next to me that we begin to bellow out a cheer, but as an athlete myself, I know that each chant, clap or spectator means a great deal.
