- ND Women's Soccer: Spark off the bench Senior forward Kelly Tulisiak steps up as valuable weapon, knocks in key (By JEFF BALTRUZAK Assistant Sports Editor)
Throughout her career at Notre Dame, senior forward Kelly Tulisiak has shown that uncoachable knack of coming into the game and finding the net for that key go-ahead goal. Few players possess such a nose for finishing plays, and those who do prove to be valuable commodities on teams with championship aspirations.

Mediocre is probably the best word to describe the play of the defensive line against Nebraska.

For the first time since last Tuesday's tragic incidents in New York and Washington, a Notre Dame athletic team will take the court tonight as the Irish volleyball team hosts interstate rival Val-paraiso at 7 p.m. in the Joyce Center.

A week ago, I wrote a column about the Notre Dame/Nebraska football game. I told my roommates how hard it was for me to get across exactly what I wanted to say.
- Getting back to normal (Bryan Kronk Sports Copy Editor)
Over the course of the past week, the world got put on hold to express its sympathies and respects for those affected by the tragedies in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania last Tuesday. We prayed for the victims and their families, lit candles in their honor, donated blood and hung American flags all across campus. I even saw a picture Monday in USA Today of a woman, undeterred by stores that had run out of flags, ribbons and other patriotic symbols, who took the next logical step and repainted the front of her house to look like the American flag.

In light of the recent terrorist attacks, it may be useful to review some points on the legitimacy and conduct of war.
- Expressing a word of thanks (Father Edward Malloy Notre Dame President)
Sept. 11, in the middle of the Day of Prayer we observed as a result of the tragic events which took place in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, we were able to come together on the South Quad to celebrate Mass together. That was a poignant moment for all those present, and perhaps gave us the first encouraging response to events which numbed and confused us.

"If I were an American, as I am an Englishman, while a foreign troop was landed in my country,
- Readers defend America and its soldiers Soldiers win, guard freedom (LCDR Jack McLaughlin, USNR class of '89)
One cannot argue with Mr. Kreider's assertions that the government of the United States has made a great deal of mistakes in foreign policy and in all likelihood will continue to do so. The world is most certainly a place filled with injustice, and the tremendous economic injustice of the world does a great deal to fuel other nations' anger. Failing to address these problems will make any military action by the United States in this "war against terrorism" incomplete and less effective.
- Readers defend America and its soldiers U.S. needs ROTC, CIA (Peter Godlewski junior)
I am writing this in response to Mr. Kreider's column on Sept. 17. While I agree that past U.S. policy has caused pain in the world, I am appalled at his presumption about ROTC and CIA. Both serve very important functions and I believe, now more than ever, they need our support. In a perfect world we would not need either of the organizations, but Tuesday's events have shown us that this is far from a perfect world. I have friends in ROTC and I know them to be of utmost moral character and I have nothing but respect for them. Tuesday showed us that we need a good defense for our country and I have no problems entrusting my life to these men and women to defend.
- Readers defend America and its soldiers People choose terrorism (Thomas P. Quinn, Jr. class of '84)
While I would defend to the death the rights of those like Mr. Kreider to express their opinions, I am nonetheless dismayed by the seeming predisposition of those in academia to lay any and all problems in the world today at the feet of the U.S. government. Has the United States errors in judgment in the past? Absolutely. Does the United States enjoy, as a nation, a greater prosperity than most others? Perhaps. (Although some of the wealthiest people in the world live in the Middle East, bin Laden among them.) Are these the reasons why a group of terrorists decided to fly commercial jets into the World Trade Center? Absolutely not.
- Readers defend America and its soldiers Respect military alumni (Greg Coughran class of '91)
I read with consternation Aaron Kreider's claptrap about Notre Dame's military alumni being tools of evil, and about Osama bin Laden wanting revenge for what we did to Saddam Hussein and his country, Iraq.

The Dow saw its largest point loss in history Monday as the industrial average plummeted 684.81 points, or 7.1 percent, to close at 8,920.70 — its lowest level since December 1998. Although Monday's stocks dove, its percentage loss today was still smaller than its 22.6 percent decline on Oct. 19, 1987, when the stock market crashed.

After Ben Folds Five broke up last year, many die-hard fans figured the signature sound of the band was gone forever. As anticipation for the first Ben Folds solo effort since the breakup mounted, speculation about what the album would sound like varied. Many fans worried that lead singer Folds would continue his experimentation held over from 1998's Fear of Pop Vol.1, an eclectic work infamous for a track featuring William Shattner.

Consistency is overrated. Despite the apparent naivete and shortsightedness of this statement, it does quite accurately describe the tone of Jamiroquai's latest album.
