- Freshman Freestyling (Finn Pressly Assistant News Editor)
Florida's schoolchildren typically score near the bottom of the nation in standardized tests, something easily explained by the fact that we were way too busy with swimming lessons to be bothered with schoolwork. While kids in non-swimming states (like Vermont and Manitoba) were studying things like addition and grammar, we were being hurled into pools by embittered old women from up North who assured us that the Dead Man's Float is the answer to all of life's problems.

- Orientating a new class of presidential candidates (Gary Caruso Capitol Comments)
Notre Dame freshmen and freshwomen (let's be politically correct, especially since I am one of those who helps mirror the diversity of our nation while serving in President Clinton's administration) have much in common with Vice President Gore and Governor Bush. Both candidates and students have begun a new life cycle unlike anything they could have expected. They are still slightly naive, well-intentioned, unfamiliar with their new surroundings, and uncertain of their immediate future. Yet they have tremendous potential for success.

- Beware the movies of summer (Reviews contributed by Beth Goodhue, Matt Larson, Casey McCluskey and Matt Nania )
Every summer, Hollywood releases the biggest, loudest, most expensive pieces of filmic garbage of the year. Audiences literally flock to their local megaplexes in record numbers to see such artistic triumphs as "Batman & Robin," "Godzilla" and — of course — the now infamous "Wild Wild West." Every once in a while, though, a few diamonds are found in the rough. For every four or five "Independence Days," there's a "Saving Private Ryan" or an "Eyes Wide Shut."
