- The dating game with a dwarf (Scott Blaszak The Early Essays)
There's a Federico Fellini film in which a character, upset over his failings with the ladies, climbs a tree and refuses to come down. When his family tries to coax him down from the tree, he answers, "I need a woman!" When they climb a ladder to get him down, he throws stones at them, then shouts, "I need a woman!" It's an absurd scene, but, watching it, I thought immediately of gender relations at Notre Dame.
- Remove the "Trojan Horse" (Letter to the Editor )
While flipping through my roommate's issue of Notre Dame Magazine, I recently learned of the statue of Mary dedicated to victims of abortion by the Knights of Columbus.

It's a little unusual that I am writing to The Observer since I have no real affiliation with Notre Dame, but on a recent trip to your University, I was bothered enough by one of the school's policies to compose this letter. My complaint has to do with a term that is familiar to everyone at Notre Dame and which became familiar to me during my visit ... "Parietals." I imagine that you regularly publish articles and receive incensed polemics concerning this controversial issue, but if you're interested in an outsider's opinion, here's mine: The rules governing visits from the opposite sex at Notre Dame create an unfriendly atmosphere for your guests.

- Carrillo to lecture on santero art (By MARIBEL MOREY Assistant News Editor)
Hidden just below the lobby of the Snite Museum, several figures of saints in deep reds and blues stand within clear cases. Just because these santos (saints) were created before 1848 and are now in a museum does not mean the art is just part of history.
