  Reality television has hit a new lowPDF files may take a moment to load

It's a consequence of celebrity. People have long used the famous to live vicariously, taking part in lives much more exciting and intriguingly more scandalous than their own. However, we no longer want to peer into the world of the famous from our comfortable couches in suburbia. As MTV has successfully proven, we don't want to be "just like" Nelly or Britney; we actually want to be them.

  Confusion drives KyotoPDF files may take a moment to load

It sounds like the apocalypse is nearing as Canada decides to ratify the controversial Kyoto Accord. Our choices seem pretty grim: do we sacrifice an unknown number of jobs hoping it won't be in vain and will help cease global warming, or do we revoke the accord and hope the environment doesn't end up saying "I told you so."

It seems the war fairy has granted George Bush his heart's deepest desires to open a can of whup-ass on Saddam.

  Editor, the Gauntlet:PDF files may take a moment to load

Shame on the SU for criticizing the Gauntlet for reporting the human side of an issue. When a monolithic body brings legal action against one of it's own, of course someone suffers. I'm glad that the Gauntlet saw through the legalistic quagmire and paid attention to the victim, someone most people could relate to more easily than the SU bureaucracy.

  Editor, the Gauntlet:PDF files may take a moment to load

Irene Enyedy's letter appalled me. The half-truths, obfuscations and apparent lack of understanding of basic concepts of jurisprudence such as "double jeopardy" and "statute of limitations" expressed in her letter cause me to question her ability and the entire su's ability to operate in a representative, democratic manner and her personal ability competently represent students.
