  Editor, the GauntletPDF files may take a moment to load

In an effort to set the record straight regarding Вen Li's article, I would like to point out a number of factual errors in the article.

First, the cover of the Gauntlet states: "Impeachment attempt failed: Preston told truth on report but must apologize for comments made to slc." This is, in fact, completely incorrect. slc did not find that he told the truth in his report.

  Campus bookstore missing some booksPDF files may take a moment to load

Two weeks into class, some students are already behind on their readings--not because they slack off, but because their texts are unavailable.

"I wouldn't say it's worse than usual," said Wayne Borgstrom, Supervisor of Textbooks and Custom Course Materials at the U of C Bookstore. "I think it's better than most years."

According to Borgstrom, as of the first day of classes about 98 per cent of textbooks were available.

  Shafted: Dinos dish it and take itPDF files may take a moment to load

Mark my words; the Dinos men's soccer season will be as wacky as Michael Jackson's monkey on three teaspoons of LSD.

"When you start four or five rookies a game you're in for an interesting time," reflected Head Coach Andy Gibbs after his troops opened the season with an inspired 2-0 result, followed by a 3-1 beating the next day. "It shows we have a long way to go."

  No smoking, pleasePDF files may take a moment to load

Some issues are easy. Racism is bad, women should be equal and homosexuals should not be shunned by society. In these cases, it is not hard to take a stand. Agreement is universal unless you count a swine from the Ku Klux Klan, or a bigoted old man who thinks all gays have aids.

However, some issues are not so easy. Abortion is one-both the pro-choice and pro-life factions have a solid argument. Another issue is the right to choose, especially when it involves a cigarette.

  Browning brings folk to KarmaPDF files may take a moment to load

Let me briefly describe the process of reviewing a cd for the uninitiated. I excitedly pop in the disc like I've been waiting for it to be released forever. In a scene reminiscent of a kid in a candy store, I want everything about this disc to encompass me.

  Eric Bachmann, Short CareersPDF files may take a moment to load

Everyone pay attention, as this may be the only time that sports related content gets into my entertainment section.

Eric Bachman's score for the film Ball of Wax, a tale about baseball, is one of the most moving instrumental discs to grace my collection. Well-structured minimalism using chilling string tracks and samples of creeking and clicking make for pure ear candy. By far, the best track on the disc is "Ty Cobb," closing out the album with a track filled with more emotion than any vocal track could ever express.

  Kathleen Edwards, FailerPDF files may take a moment to load

Country music is generally a hard sell, especially for someone like myself. The vocals are usually too twangy, the music too simple, and the lyrics too small-town trash. However, on her debut album Failer, Kathleen Edwards offers an introduction that is very easy to embrace.

  Nathan Wiley, Bottom DollarPDF files may take a moment to load

P.E.I. native Nathan Wiley's first album, Bottom Dollar, is a refreshing blend of folk and roots experimentation. The title track starts the CD off with a smooth southwestern feel, which quickly becomes a hard Maritime-influenced brand of music in "Black Bones." Wiley then shows his versatility in "Straight and Sober," which has definite shades of honky-tonk. From soulful to mournful, the songs on this album are distinct, rich expressions of Wiley's unique style that combines musical talent with passionate storytelling.

  Noise Therapy, Tension Tension PDF files may take a moment to load

Many members of the older generation might call this noise, however, metal connoisseurs know better. In terms of the genre, Noise Therapy's Tension is a solid disc.

The vocals vary from screaming to layered melodies to the sweet whine of an artist in pain. Together with the drums and guitar they evolve as they build up to climax, then drop, only to take off in a completely different direction.
