- Counter evil with good (Charles Rice Right or Wrong?)
What can we do in response to the terrorist attacks? Let me tell you about a constructive thing we can do right here at Notre Dame. First, however, we should consider the nature of the evil perpetrated on Sept. 11. Barbara Olson died when American Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon. At her memorial service, Father Franklyn McAfee said: "With amazing speed, we have identified the terrorists who took over the planes, and we probably know who masterminded it. But who is really behind it all? We are speaking of an enormity of hate and evil here, for these were evil acts. But evil is not something. Evil is someone. Satan."
- Administration favors WV over ROTC (Malia Lam senior)
Reading Geoff Heiple's Viewpoint letter on Friday, I was both saddened and frustrated by the University's decision banning cadences, camoflauge on campus and the use of rubber weapons in training exercises. At a time when the rest of our nation is uniting behind our leaders and military personnel — those who are serving and protecting us in this time of tragedy and unrest — the administration at Notre Dame has done the exact opposite.

- Right to Life defends its beliefs (Mandy Reimer co-president, Notre Dame Right to Life)
I am writing this response to a letter printed Monday entitled "Right to Life not about abortion." While it is always difficult to listen to the rhetoric of those who disagree with the pro-life cause, I feel it necessary to respond to some of the complaints given by the author.
- Set the women free (Anna Barbour Get a Life)
I was just listening to J-Lo and thinking, I do live my life to the limit and I love it. In a few days, I will be on vacation. I will fly in a plane to another state, another city in the continental United States. I will put on my vacation clothes — my warm weather clothes. While I am at the airport, I will probably stop and get a Cinnabon before I get on the plane and most likely on my way back, I will get another delicious cinnamon pastry. I will also pick up some gum and a Cosmo magazine for my reading pleasure and catch up on relationship dynamics and clothing styles. If I go to the beach, I will wear a skimpy bathing suit so I can get tan enough to outlast South Bend's marathon winter. I will sleep as much as possible. Perhaps I will just sleep the whole week. No. I will have to take my car and go out once in awhile to see what's happening. I will talk on the phone and listen to music; go to movies and restaurants; buy new items from malls and stores; exercise outside, jogging without having to wear sweatshirts and sweatpants.

- Introspective Vertigo illustrates JLC's new maturity (By LIAM FARRELL Scene Music Critic)
Vertigo is the third studio album for the North Carolina band Jump, Little Children. Although not as strong as their last effort (1998's Magazine), Vertigo nonetheless shows great promise for future development. After opening for Guster and playing dates in small clubs, Jump, Little Children seems to have earned enough respect for proper studio and production time, releasing an album that is infinitely more polished and layered than their past work.
- Tenacious D fuse comedy, rock in debut album (By TOM O'CONNELL Scene Music Critic)
