- Worst restroom on campus? (Letter to the Editor )
Kudos to Andrew McDowell for his recent study of bathrooms on campus ("The Royal and Not-So-Royal Flush," Scene Nov. 12). However, in spite of his fine research, Andrew seems to have overlooked what we are sure is the worst men's restroom at Notre Dame. Anyone who has ever visited the Law School and used the men's room in the basement (or even walked past it) will attest to the fact that it truly is the worst facility under the shadow of the Dome.
- Protesting the School of Americas (Letter to the Editor )
If Notre Dame's graduates included notorious dictators Manuel Noriega and Omar Torrijos of Panama, Leopoldo Galtieri and Roberto Viola of Argentina, Juan Velasco Alvarado of Peru, Guillermo Rodriguez of Ecuador, and Hugo Banzer Suarez of Bolivia, wouldn't US citizens be more than a little concerned about the ideas and values being instilled at Notre Dame? If Notre Dame's graduates were responsible for the assassination of six Jesuit priests in El Salvador, the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero, the torture and murder of U.N. workers in Chile, the La Cantuta massacre in Peru, the Uraba massacre in Columbia, and the deaths of 900 civilians in the El Mozote massacre, wouldn't U.S. citizens be indignant and adamant that Notre Dame be shut down immediately? Fortunately, Notre Dame is not responsible for graduating such dictators, nor those accountable for such atrocities, but the U.S. Army's "School of the Americas" (SOA) is.
- Faculty discuss graduate research funding (By MAUREEN SMITHE Assistant News Editor)
Because Notre Dame rejected a proposal to join the Big 10 last February, the Faculty Senate Forum on Academic Life established a series of panel discussions to address the issue of research funding at Notre Dame.

- Foo Fighters' new album smells like ... Nirvana (By EMMETT MALLOY Assistant Scene Editor)
Much credit needs to be given to Dave Grohl. With the weight of being the drummer for the most influential band of this decade on his shoulders, Grohl left his Nirvana past and forged ahead with The Foo Fighters. Refusing to be a "replacement" for his former band, Grohl created his own sound, a fusion of punk and rock, balancing on a thin line between utter chaos and boppy bubblegum pop. While There Is Nothing Left To Lose is definitely the Foo Fighters' best album to date, one has to wonder whether Kurt Cobain's ghost is inhabiting Grohl's body.
- Incubus goes from H.S. to the Family Values Tour (By BRIAN KORNMANN Scene Music Critic)
Usually, success does not come quickly in the music industry. Most bands struggle underground for years before they finally get their big break. REM, Less Than Jake, Nirvana and Face to Face are perfect examples.
