- Brown keeps Irish defense rock solid (By MIKE CONNOLLY Associate Sports Editor)
If you took at quick look at the Irish line up, you might look past Kara Brown. Standing just 5-foot-2, Brown is not the quickest, the strongest or the faster player on the Irish roster. But once you see her play, you quickly understand why she is such an important part of the Irish defense.

- Go ahead — ash'k a silly question (By MEL TARDY )
Anybody in our neighborhood who thought he was tough hadn't yet played Ernest in football. Though younger than most of us by a couple years, he was strong and quick enough to shake any of us.

- Providence has been good to us (By CAPPY GAGNON )
"Once more, Providence has been good to us, and we blessed God from the depths." This was one of the lines in the letter Fr. Edward Sorin sent to the Very Reverend Basil Moreau, on Dec. 5, 1842.

- Do we need to eat chicken? (Letter to the editor )
I was dismayed to see columnist Mike Marchand's callous display of unconcern for the suffering of animals in last Monday's Observer. Inspired by Charles Rice's column on Sept. 24, Marchand attacks the "pure lunacy" of the "insane philosophy" of Princeton bioethicist Peter Singer, the father of the modern animal rights movement. Among Singer's "lunacies" is purported to be the claim that "apes, bears, cats, possibly chickens, chimps, dogs, dolphins, pigs, seals and whales are all on a level with humans because they are rational and sentient beings" while "newborn and unborn babies are not." Even worse, Singer's madness has apparently spread to his followers, as evidenced by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) member Ingrid Newkirk's apparent attempt to implicate Colonel Sanders in a genocide of a scale unknown even in the Holocaust: "Six million people died in concentration camps, but 6 billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughterhouses."

- That Really is Disgusting (By BRIAN McLAUGHLING Scene Writer)
Have you ever wondered what a sootigan is? Have you ever contemplated how much you really can accomplish with a strip of raw liver and a few rubber bands? Do you want to know how one would go about eating a monkey's brain?
