  VP Events Irene EnyedyPDF files may take a moment to load

Irene Enyedy would be happy with a 36-hour day. That would give her the time to do everything she wants to do, and maybe, she might even get to relax for an hour or so.

Enyedy is a workaholic; Enyedy is also a slave driver. It is these two qualities that are at the root of everything positive and negative about her performance with the SU thus far.

  VP Academic Rosie NagraPDF files may take a moment to load

Comparing Rosie Nagra's term to her predecessors' is tempting but difficult due to her underwhelming performance. With the exception of the well-attended Academic Carnival in November, and her month-long prosecution of one of her commissioners, there is little to distinguish Ms. Nagra's first seven months in office. She fulfills her committee and portfolio requirements but has not affected many significant changes during a year filled with emergent academic issues.

  President Matt StambaughPDF files may take a moment to load

When I asked the SU's elected officials what separates them from SUs previous, I received a number of very similar responses. Some--most in fact--focused on the "tuition fight."

When critically examining Matt Stambaugh's job as president, this example presents a number of problems. Most important, is the lack of tuition-related initiatives, a major campaign issue for Stambaugh.

  Temporary permanencePDF files may take a moment to load

The December 5 issue of the Gauntlet will be on the stands for five weeks. That means the last editorial of 2003 can't discuss Iraq, Ralph Klein, Paul Martin or Harvey Weingarten. Ralph, Paul and Harvey will still be there in 2003, but who knows what crazy mischief they'll get up to? And Iraq? We can't even say there will be an Iraq in five weeks.

  Live from BonnarooPDF files may take a moment to load

For those who follow the jam band scene, Bonnaroo was Mecca. 70,000 people came together through word of mouth and e-mail (no advertising), and converged on an exceptional gathering of artists. To take the three day music festival, populated by bands that thrive on live energy and extended jams, and cram it into one package, even a two-CD set, is a daunting task. The fact that much of the energy survives the transition is an achievement in itself. The fact that it translates into a mostly cohesive album is an absolute wonder.

  Las Ketchup, Hijas Del TomatePDF files may take a moment to load

It says enough about this album that it has four versions of its single, "The Ketchup Song," one of which is the Karaoke version. This song is being billed as the next "Macarena," which begs two questions: Why would anybody want to cause another "Macarena?" And what does any of this have to do with Ketchup?
