- Helping mothers despite their choice Laura Antkowiak

- Examine the value of ND clothing in your closet Joseph Rumbo
Somewhere in the moral grey area between the ethos of capitalism and the Catholic sense of duty and charity lies the issue of sweatshop labor used in the manufacturing of officially licensed Notre Dame apparel. The term "sweatshop" means that workers therein are typically subject to grueling, unrestricted working hours, paltry wages, human rights abuses and are denied the right to organize for the purposes of forming collective bargaining units to improve these conditions. Although the phenomenon has been documented to exist in the United States in isolated cases involving recent immigrants working for substantially less than minimum-wage laws allow, sweatshops are usually found in developing third-world nations where unemployment is relatively high (yet stable) and where political conditions favor the rights of global capital over those of workers.

- `Punt Davie' is untrue to ND Letter to the Editor
Sophomore Ryan Moodie's letter titled "Punt Davie!" sickens me. To Ryan, I must ask, Why did you come to the University of Notre Dame? If the answer depends so heavily on football, it is you, rather than Coach Davie and the football players that I feel sorry for. If you feel, as you claim, that your time here as a student has been wasted by anyone other than yourself, you are sorely mistaken. Maybe if you put the passion with which you wrote that last letter into something more productive, your life's happiness won't hang on the outcome of a few football games.
- Raise helmets to honor your fans Letter to the Editor
I do not feel qualified by virtue of my status as a Notre Dame alumnus to critique the play-calling ability of the coaching staff, as I would be hard-pressed to successfully command a pee-wee team. Bob Davie, Kevin Rogers and the rest of the crew are no doubt regarded as competent coaches by people who know much more about the game than we do. However, as someone who has appreciated the the tradition of the Notre Dame family for the better part of my life, I must take issue with one action Coach Davie's team has taken.

- Blues Traveler frontman is reborn with 'Zygote' Geoff Rahie
A man can't dance without the chance," said John Popper in his debut solo album "Zygote." This might be somewhat ironic since Popper is the cornerstone of the band Blues Traveler (whose situation is unknown since bassist Bobby Sheehan passed away a month ago) and has had more than enough chances to "dance."
