- You've got (junk) mail (Peter Wicks Englishman Abroad)
Some people believe that the Internet is the most significant technological breakthrough since the invention of the Gutenberg press. Others see it as a catalyst quickening our cultural decline towards Gomorrah from a slouch to a high speed luge. As for myself, I subscribe to neither of these extreme views. It seems to me that on any sober and balanced analysis it is plain that the Internet is first and foremost an instrument for selling lobster. Indeed it is by far the most sophisticated lobster-sales device the world has ever known.
- A closer look at the people of the Middle East Ignorance comes from rulers (Chris Paolucci sophomore)
Although John Litle's April 11 column was not well-delivered, I find it disheartening that the responses it has garnered thus far have not focused on the main point of it and, worse yet, even criticized The Observer for publishing it. There is validity in the argument that the vast majority of the Middle Eastern community, through no fault of their own, is ignorant.
- A closer look at the people of the Middle East Terrorism is not a part of Islam (Isin Canturk freshman)
I was reading an article in The Observer, and I decided to express my point of view about the Middle East and the Arab community living there. Being Turkish has given me a chance to see the Middle Eastern world through a different perspective. I grew up in a city that is very close to the Turkish borders of Syria and Iraq. I have friends who are Turkish, Arab and Kurd. These people are "modern" people and aware of their religion.
- Leprechauns should not have choice (EDITORIAL )
If the committee responsible for choosing the Notre Dame leprechaun ran the world, Kansas and Syracuse never would have needed to step on a court to determine a national champion and George Bush and Al Gore wouldn't have needed lawyers to figure out who won the 2000 presidential election.

- "Laurel Canyon" lacks deep meaning (By Chris Bannister Cinema Manifestos)
The movie theater is a scary place. They turn down the lights, put up the pretty pictures and for at least 90 minutes of your life you agree to go pretty much where the director wants to take you. It's an emotional experience, and sometimes it ends up being just disappointing. With "Laurel Canyon" such disappointment turns to anger when the lights come up and you realize just how you have been manipulated.
