Editors, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Washed-up Rock stars: Pack it in" Oct. 14, 1999

The recent resurfacing of live performances by successful '80s bands in Calgary is hardly an "infection." The real "sickness" is in people who deny that music is subjective and has a history beyond the late '90s.

  Pakistan: better coup next timePDF files may take a moment to load

It was Tuesday of last week that soldiers surrounded the residence of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and seized control of power in Islamabad, the capital. Pakistan's army chief, General Pervez Musharraf, was responsible for this latest coup d'état. It is Pakistan's fourth since its inception in 1947. And the people of Pakistan are loving it. Is there something I'm not getting here?

Who is Mumia Abu Jamal?

Is he the infamous and outspoken African American dissident and writer, currently on death row, innocent of the crime for which he is accused? Was he sentenced to death based on his political views and history -- a man whose death could be mere weeks away?

  Don't count Jesus out yetPDF files may take a moment to load

Jesus Christ is someone I want to know. He was a man who shook things up. In his day, his radical ideas caused chaos and outrage. He rocked the establishment. In a deeply patriarchal society, he treated women as individuals with minds and hearts, not as pieces of property. He dared to touch the untouchables; people so rejected by society that they had to yell "unclean!" when they walked down the street so everyone could get out of their way.

  Reform seeks like-minded party for good timesPDF files may take a moment to load

Except for those nose-counting lovers of freedom, the Youth 4UA vanguard, haven't we heard enough about uniting the right? Daily updates on the United Alternative have hit maximum saturation considering the new party is almost universally dismissed as impossible or pointless.

After six months of disinterest from Joe Clark, UA strategists began attacking him as anti-democratic. Translation "Why doesn't he like us?" This plays out very desperate.

A sleepy Dinos team woke up near the end of their home-and-home series with the Lethbridge Pronghorns to eke out a win and a loss over the weekend.

  Hocheysaurs dominate Pronghorns seriesPDF files may take a moment to load

The Dinos hockey team humiliated the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns last weekend. In two fast-paced, physical and offensive contests, the Dinos only allowed one goal, shutting out the hapless 'Horns in game one and blasting six goals by Lethbridge goalie Tanya Allen in game two.

Oh yeah--this is the women's team, by the way.
