Does anyone actually believe in "freedom of speech" anymore?
- Too many assumptions (Letter to the Editor )
As a freshman here at Notre Dame, I was appalled to hear an alumnus speak in such a manner [commenting on how inconsiderate and inappropriate the student body behaved at the Notre Dame-Michigan State football game] about the current student body. Mr. Misch's comments in his Sept. 23 letter are not reflective of the entire student body. I was seated just three rows behind him and saw almost none of the behavior that he described.
- Breaking the barrier of silence (Letter to the Editor )
I am in complete support of and excited from the letter from the Sept. 27th issue, "ND needs to hear silent screams of eating disorders ..." but would like to add my own comments in order to, hopefully, provoke further discussion. Although today's letter was true in all its aspects, I think the emotional and scary message that eating disorders KILL needs to again be emphasized and provoked to start changing something.

- It's `moe.' than just a great show (By ANDREW JONES Scene Music Critic)
Shortly past 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24, anxious banter filled The Vic Theater in Chicago. Chants, clapping and the clink of bottles were highly audible, and the smoke in the theater was so thick one could have cut it with a knife. Tie-dyes, hemp, beads, dreads and bloodshot eyeballs were in high fashion for the buzzing crowd. The house lights dimmed, and the audience erupted as Al Schnier, Rob Derhak, Chuck Garvey, Vinnie Amico and guest percussionist Jim Loughlin, strolled out under the stage lights. moe.'s "Quest For Ray" tour had arrived in Chicago.
- Campus radio stations provide alternative listening (By RICK SILVESTRINI Scene Music Critic)
Searching the radio dial in South Bend can be a painful process for musiclovers, particularly for alternative fans. While there is more than enough country, classic rock and bad top 40, South Bend radio has almost no outlet for alternative music. This musical void can be frustrating for Notre Dame students accustomed to hearing exclusively alternative stations at home; some get to the point where they don't bother turning the radio on.
