- Davie focuses team effort and constant improvement (By KERRY SMITH Sports Editor)
With just two games remaining and a 9-2 season a looming possibility, Bob Davie and the Irish have a lot on their minds. Like a Bowl Champio-nship Series bid, that would provide redemption after a less than mediocre 5-7 season and quiet calls for a new coaching staff once and for all, right?
- Coming out for Mom (Marlayna Soenneker Here We Go Again)
I would have loved to have written this column back in October on National Coming Out Day or even last week during our week of learning tolerance, but there were reasons for my delay. My mother was just here for the Boston College game, and I didn't want to write this until she had come and gone. You see, it's about my mother that I want to write. My mother is a lesbian and I want to talk about that today.
- Quote of the Day (Mark Twain author)
"All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure."
- Breaking out of the bubble (Drew Olejnik For a More Just and Humane World)
We painted walls in a school, put up ceiling tiles, shadowed students and picked trash from one of the many illegal hillside trash dumps. Knee deep in filth, wading through the dirt, garbage, bones, dog carcasses and syringes, we worked with dozens of other college and local students and left David, Kentucky, the site of our Appalachia Seminar experience, with the understanding of what service to and by many people can accomplish. Communities can achieve greatness if willing people communicate, work hard and have a vision.
- Struggling to rebuild (Dawn Lardner senior)
I got my first look at East Timor through the plane window while holding the hand of the girl sitting next to me. (Terrified of flying, she braved the trip to visit her mother who worked for the united Nations.) The mountain peaks of the half-island formerly part of Indonesia jutted through the clouds.
- Larger facilities needed (Aaron Murray graduate student)
I was more than a little disappointed in the University in their handling of the Tim Russert talk. It is not often that the students get to hear someone of his stature speak on our campus.

One week has passed since the controversial presidential election and the country is still eagerly awaiting the results. With Florida hanging in the balance, the candidates are in a heated battle over whether Florida ballots should be recounted.

- Roche: questioning religion leads to faith (By ANDREW THAGARD News Writer)
Intellect and religion can mix, said Mark Roche, dean of the College of Arts and Letters in a lectured titled "Religion and Intellectuals" Tuesday.
- Koestner: date rape is an important issue on college campuses (By COLLEN McCARTHY Associate News Editor)
When Katie Koestner began college in the fall of 1990 at the College of William and Mary in Virginia, she never imagined that her plans for the future would have led her to giving the speech she did before students from Notre Dame and Saint Mary's on Tuesday night.
