What's the only thing worse than Calgary's traffic problems? All the whining and grumbling about
Calgary's traffic problems.

For some reason, people have the misguided belief that everyone around them needs to hear their traffic horror stories. Everyone needs to hear why Deerfoot sucks and should be a six-lane freeway stretching from Harvest Hills to Bridlewood or how they were stuck in traffic for a whole hour. Most Torontonians would give their left arm to have such a short commute.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Hadija Gabunga, in her jovially unqualified examination of sexual politics, makes certain assumptions regarding "human nature" that many might find rather dubious.

Becoming extra crispy--but not necessarily tasty--on the beaches of Rio wasn't his goal last weekend, but Dinos swimmer Rick Say did it anyway. In addition to what turned out to be a tan, he also brought home three gold medals along with a Canadian record for the 200m freestyle event.

"It was my first win at a World Cup meet," said the third-year

Remember when you were a kid and you used to cover your eyes during scary movies? Remember how you would always leave some space between your fingers on the off chance it all worked out in the end? When you were a kid, the good guys always won. Sadly, movies are only movies and life can be so very cruel.

Women's volleyball Head Coach Kevin Boyles sold his soul to the devil. Consider the evidence.

This is year three of Boyles' unholy reign with the Dinos. In all three, Boyles has still never dropped a match to Trinity Western University, a privately funded Christian institution. Coincidence? After two straight
3-0 thumpings in the Jack Simpson Gymnasium it hardly seems like one. Boyles' minions handed TWU the beating of their lives. In Saturday night's game, the second set score was 25-6.

Good news and bad news, Dino hockey fans. The good news is the University of Alberta Golden Bears lost to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on Sunday night, bringing an end to their 11-game [8-0-3] unbeaten streak and enabling the Dinos to make up precious, precious ground on their northern rivals. The bad news is the Dinos split their weekend series with the University of Lethbridge, thus ending their own nine game [8-0-1] unbeaten streak.

Just one week after a visit from a former American President, Calgarians received a visit from a former Canadian Prime Minister.

Joe Clark, leader of the Progressive Conservative Party and MP for Calgary Centre, was in town on Wed., Nov. 14 to speak at a Tory fundraiser dinner for Calgary Centre and the upcoming by-election in Calgary Southwest. To the disappointment of many, Clark's daughter Catherine was not in attendance.
