Many swimmers wiped tears from their eyes as the First Annual Ryan Schaff Memorial Trophy was presented last Monday. With the entire swimming program and the Schaff family in attendance, two of Schaff's teammates made opening remarks.

"He was very dedicated," said teammate Graeme Gordon, who relayed to the audience a simple, personal anecdote epitomizing Schaff's consideration for others.

The latest effort in fundraising will have students shining shoes across Calgary.

Shinerama, the national fund-raising campaign for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, will return to University of Calgary this September courtesy of the Students' Union.

Behind the symbolism of everything Canadians have done for Americans since the attacks, there is a Canadian sentiment that smacks of nothing less than smug arrogance.

The Americans deserved it, we say in closed quarters and away from our American friends. They brought this upon themselves, we say, while others nod in agreement.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

If I were to use two words to describe the American culture, I would be hard pressed to do better than patriotic and religious. Some may see this as complementary, however, a closer examination of the types of patriotism and religiosity now common in the United States might force them to think otherwise. Recent American patriotism and religious language can only be described as myopic and misguided.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I read James Keller's comments from my seventh floor office in the ICT building. The editorial is clearly split into two parts: the first being generally negative comments on the ambiance of the new building, and the second being an equally negative commentary on the value of Management, Computer Science, and other studies that happen to be of commercial interest and whether these belong at a university.

  No sex please, we're CalgariansPDF files may take a moment to load

A few years ago I attended a New Year's party in a town just south of our fair city. Attending said party was the host and hostess, their children, their children's friends (of whom I was one) and some neighbours. One of the neighbours was a 14-year-old girl. She seemed no different from any other 14-year-old girl aside from the fact that she had an 18-month-old child. Now, I did the math there and then. Given nine months for gestation, added to the 18, and that 14-year-old was pregnant over two years earlier.

     What's the deal with women?

Why are they even allowed out in public? Don't get me wrong, I like the good-looking ones, but why do they have to open their mouths? Wouldn't the world be a better place if they just knew their role and stayed in the kitchen?
