- How should we react on Sept. 11? Reflect on America's direction and reconsider foreign policy (Darren Luft sophomore)
No doubt, this Sept. 11 will see a campus clad in red, white and blue. Flags will hang out of windows, and people will strut on the quads in their latest trendy America-themed T-shirts. As highly educated students of one of the finest institutions for higher learning in this country, please do not succumb to the jingoistic and ethnocentric fervor that will likely sweep the nation one year after the tragedy that occurred in New York.
- How should we react on Sept. 11? Put politics aside and unite in remembrance and hope (Angelina Zehrbach sophmore)
I think both Anna Nussbaum and Thomas Witherspoon made some good points in their letters of Thursday and yesterday, respectively, but I disagree to some extent with both of them. The American flag means many things to many people, and I think that is where we run into trouble in waving it. I believe that Nussbaum is saying it has a negative connotation and a lack of empathy with other nations, and that patriotism is not necessarily a good thing. "Patriotism" is defined as "love and devotion to one's country." Let's hope that this love of our country will not stand in the way of loving other countries as well.
- Student cried wolf with `police brutality' (Timothy Malin 13th Precinct, NYPD)
I find it amusing that Matt Roberts is crying police brutality in his letter yesterday after a South Bend cop grabbed a female student's arm when she tried to walk away from him while being addressed. I would like to see Mr. Roberts explain to Rodney King and Abner Louima why the incident he witnessed is "police brutality at its best." Police brutality is a very serious issue, and albeit a rare occurrence, it needs to be exposed when a legitimate claim surfaces.

- That valuable vinyl: Confessions of a closet LP junkie (By JULIE BENDER Scene Columnist)
When I was in 6th grade, I found a secret joy in having the house to myself. I would perch myself at the window and watch until I saw my parents' cars disappear from view. I would then make a dash around the downstairs of our house closing all the curtains and sealing all the windows. Finally assured of being all alone and obscured from the view of my neighbors, it was time to begin.
- The LP renaissance Why music afficionados are returning to their vinyl roots (By C. SPENCER BEGGS Scene Editor)
When Thomas Edison recorded his voice singing "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in 1877, music took a quantum forward. No longer would artists' masterpieces vanish into thin air as soon as they were played.
