- Sodomy laws are discriminatory (N. Eugene Walls graduate student)
It is important that people understand that there is more at issue in the Supreme Court case regarding the Texas sodomy law than the "right to privacy."

- McNeff needs to show responsibility, not students (Mike Hewett senior)
In her letter on April 29, Jessica Monokroussos decries students who are clamoring "for the University to step in as if it is mommy or daddy," referring to the Boat Club civil lawsuit brought against students by proprietor Mike McNeff.

Oh yeah, and the fountains get turned back on. That makes me happy.
