- Student leaders show courage at race retreat (Ken Seifert diversity educator)
A strong commendation is in place for Notre Dame's student leadership. As the focus participants of this weekend's Learning to Talk About Race Retreat, a phenomenal but relatively new event, these prominent club and committee heads from the Office of the President to FASO proved their strengths as leaders and showed their courage as people. While the LTR Retreat's principle mission is to initiate positive and productive dialogue in race-related topics, I have all the confidence that this weekend's conversation will continue on as these leader-participants take home lessons learned and begin to plant of seeds of change.

- After Sept. 11: Don't go nuts (Anna Barbour Get a Life)
Now, let's not go nuts. Did a famous person once say, "don't go nuts," in a movie or an interview? I do not know, but probably, and I am saying it so you can quote me. What I mean to say, though, is to remain who you have always been, remain who you are in the wake of Sept. 11's barbarous terrorist attacks.

- Bad Ronald releases unbelievably bad album (By GEOFF RAHIE Scene Music Critic)
On their debut album, Bad Ronald makes a case for the most annoying group of human beings put together in one room. Using samples, boring hip-hop beats, remedial guitar licks and very pretentious rap vocals, the band takes the waste of the MTV Generation to a whole new level. Fred Durst looks like a genius compared to Bad Ronald.
- Carey continues hip-pop trend in Glitter (By LAURA ROMPF Scene Music Critic)
Reviewing a Mariah Carey album is a lot like Forrest Gump's life theory about a box of chocolate: "You never know what you're gonna get." Some songs are terrible, while others — the obvious singles ensuring album sales — are fun, catchy, pop classics.
