- Broke down (By Sarah Nestor Saint Mary's News Editor)
Last week one of the worst things that could possibly happen did.
- It only takes three weeks (Laura Rompf Beyond the Bubble)
My roommate has an interesting theory. He believes that after just three weeks in a completely new environment, one can adjust. This doesn't mean life becomes easy or effortless, just normal. No matter how difficult the change is, after three weeks, you wake up and it doesn't seem so different anymore.

UNICEF, the United Nation's Children Fund, does make the world more fit for children. In response to Professor Rice's Sept. 20 column, I add my perspective after having worked for UNICEF briefly.

- Questioning Saint Mary's Catholic identity (Michelle Powell sophomore)
In the past year, Saint Mary's has launched a new program, as described in The Observer on Sept. 20, that encourages students, faculty and staff to focus on the identity of Saint Mary's as a Catholic institution. At first, this news was pleasant to my ears. Knowing well from experience how desperately faltering St Mary's is in upholding Catholic doctrine and in encouraging students in the true beliefs of the Catholic faith, I was initially hopeful that this program would bring much needed attention to the areas in which the College is misleading many students.
- America preaches false ideals (Danny Richter sophomore)
President Bush has just released a new version of "The National Security Policy of the United States." It stresses preemptive action against governments that may be developing weapons of mass destruction that may be used against the United States. As reported in the Sept. 19 edition of The New York Times, it also pledges never to let any country come close to us in our technological development of weapons of mass destruction.
- Sept. 11 reactions expose U.S. xenophobia (Adrian Acu sophomore)
I am writing this in response to the Sept. 18 letter advocating an attack on Iraq. First off, not all the information there is correct. It is not just military installations that are being inspected, but anything the United Nations wants to inspect. The foreign minister of Iraq stated that scientific installations would be included, so there does not seem to be any restrictions. Almost the entire former Bush cabinet, the one from the Iraqi war era, the United Nations, and the U.N. inspectors, including the American ones, all do not support military action and say it has no merit.

- PILLARS, SUB and FlipSide: an alternative way of life (By EMILY HOWALD Assistant Scene Editor)
It's freshman year. You have gone through countless mandatory meetings and all you want to do is be finished. You want it all to be over so you can get on with being a normal college student and not the impressionable freshman who is having rule upon rule imbedded into their mindset. There is only one meeting left and you do not want to go, for its something called PILLARS and it is about responsible socializing. This is a waste of time, you tell yourself, and I already know how to be responsible.
- The myth of the South Bend party school (By C. SPENCER BEGGS Scene Editor)
In commentaries on the 2002 change in the alcohol policy that banned hard liquor (defined as drinks containing 14 percent alcohol by volume or more), students proclaimed that the Notre Dame tradition that the students know and love would be gone in the near future and that the new restrictive alcohol policy would drive students to move off campus, which would lead to a higher incidence of alcohol-related accidents in an uncontrolled environment.
