So there we were: my roommate and I were partaking in the rare, wonderful experience of eating dinner off campus last Friday night. We decided on a restaurant, which will go unnamed, that sells oblong-shaped sandwiches and whose motif resembles a form of underground transportation.
- Family's inspiring tradition of service (Kevin Dunn For a more just and humane world)
I got a message in the mail today. Not that it wasn't to be expected. It said, "Kevin, (here's) some information on the column you are writing for November 18th," and there was a page attached listing the purposes and goals of what I'm going to write about.
- Church is wrong about sexuality (Letter to the Editor )
On Nov. 2nd I attended the speech given by Francis Cardinal Arinze. I was both heartened and saddened by his words. He spoke quite convincingly on the topic of solidarity with the poor and defended the dignity of the person against the tyranny of the contemporary economic order. Cardinal Arinze made it clear that to be a Christian means helping our brothers to establish decent and worthy lives. This entails fighting against those forces that are antithetical to personal liberty and the stability of our social systems. The global economic order is a primary force for destruction and pain in this world, and therefore our duty is to do what is in our ability to end this unjust system.
- `Coach D' thanks student fans (Letter to the Editor )
I want to thank those that came out to support our program during "Friday Night Live."

We need your support, and you showed us that you are willing to take a step forward by showing up and making a lot of noise that night.

- There's more to basketball players than `thug' uniforms (Letter to the Editor )
I am writing to The Observer in response to the Inside Column "Bone Thugs and Basketball." After reading the column, I was thrilled to see that an editor of the paper finally showed some intelligence and wrote something worthwhile and open minded. I totally agree with the idea that certain uniforms worn by basketball players create less intelligent and more belligerent players. I don't think that The Observer has ever printed anything even remotely as grounded and clear as this column.

- Mr. Smith goes to church in 'Dogma' (By MATT NANIA Scene Movie Critic)
Few comedies have at stake the very fate of humankind, but "Dogma," by writer/director Kevin Smith, is not your usual comedy. It is an imaginative and surreal adult fable bursting with wild ideas, fantastical creations and boisterously funny characters.
- Joan of Arc sends weak and bleak message (By GUNDER KEHOE Scene Movie Critic)
Before "The Messenger," director Luc Besson ("La Femme Nikita") was already talented at making fictional characters forgettable, so it was curious to see what he'd do with France's national hero, Joan of Arc. The predictable result is an overlong, muddled movie that does nothing for her valiant reputation.
- Mother-daughter story is anything but complete (By JULIE HAMILTON Assistant Scene Editor)
Many teenagers as well as adults may relate to the scenarios in the film, "Anywhere But Here." There are 15-year-olds living through the arguments, the agreements and the confusion that Anne (Natalie Portman) experiences. Then there are adults that may reminisce about those same situations with regrets and appreciation. Everywhere there are mothers that should relate to Susan Sarandon's role. With tender guidance she attempts to be optimistic and carefree when dealing with her stubborn daughter who just wants to be somewhere else. In the absence of a father, Anne is raised by Adele (Susan Sarandon), who tries unsuccessfully to find another male to fill the void. Portman and Sarandon's portrayal of the mother and daughter relationship is starkly realistic and believable.
