- Students are talking about sex (Letter to the Editor )
This is in response to the April 4, Inside Column. First, I and a lot of other Notre Dame students have no problem acknowledging that we are sexual beings.

- Living is earning a sufficient wage (Todd David Whitmore The Common Good)
One of the remaining questions that the University's Task Force on Sweatshop Initiatives must address is that of the living wage. My own position is that we should uphold the living wage. The first reason for doing so is the improvement such a wage would bring about in the lives of the workers. The second is that the living wage has been a standard part of modern Catholic social teaching from its inception with Leo XIII's Rerum Novarum through the latest documents. Both of these reasons are often cited.

- Loan forgiviness benefits the poor (Letter to the Editor )
I graduated from Notre Dame Law School in 1996 and practice law as an assistant federal public defender in South Texas along the Mexican border. I chose to attend Notre Dame because I wanted a good education and because, as a practicing Catholic, I wanted to attend a school that would allow me to grow spiritually. However, attending Notre Dame has unfortunately made it difficult for me and others to practice law in keeping with our Catholic faith.

- Cusack and co. lend sharp humor to `Fidelity' (By JILLIAN DEPAUL Scene Movie Critic)
The offbeat romantic comedy "High Fidelity," directed by Stephen Frears and adapted from the novel of the same name by Nick Hornby, is a delightfully fresh coming-of-age story about a 30-something slacker named Rob Gordon, played by John Cusack (who also co-wrote and co-produced the film).
- Secret societies, killer provosts abound in `Skulls' (By MIKE McMORROW Scene Movie Critic)
"The Skulls" receives two shamrock halves: one for the fact that it does make one laugh on many occasions (although they're unintentional), and another for the fact that any movie that contains a killer provost deserves at least some credit.
