Re: "SU store benefits students more than McQ's," July 27, 2000

A number of errors appear in [Toby White's] letter and I want to correct them. Mr. White says that the SU purchased my leftover inventory. The SU purchased less than 25 per cent of my inventory. Some of my suppliers took back stock but I had to cover for the rest.

McQ's lease expires
Students will notice a different owner of the MacEwan Student Centre convenience store. Chung Cho, who ran McQ's since 1988, received notice in February 2000 his lease would not be renewed by the Students' Union.

"I worked here for 15 years," said Cho. "I never got any complaints, any notice. It was a big surprise. I feel very bad."

  Holidays are for the nine-to-fiversPDF files may take a moment to load

The Aug. 5-7 weekend was a long weekend. Especially, no doubt, for those of you who, like us, had to work on the "holiday" Monday. A long weekend indeed.

This might date the Gauntlet editorial board, but most of us can remember when grocery stores, bars, restaurants, et cetera were closed on statutory holidays. Now, one can buy nearly anything one could possibly desire on a holiday, from crispy bacon to frilly brassieres.

  Criticism of Lieberman smacks of ignorancePDF files may take a moment to load

When U.S. Presidential candidate and current Vice-president Al Gore named Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman as his running mate, Internet sites all over the country exploded with anti-semitic sentiments. Apparently, the only religion that flies in the States is Protestant Christianity. I say this because many harken this week's "daring" move by Gore to the hubbub that surrounded John F. Kennedy's Catholic faith.

Naval Combat Forces experience the highest rate of female resignations in the Canadian Military. Add this newest fact to a lot of others: women drop out of all branches of the armed forces, women in the military file a lot of complaints, women are not the most eager to join the military, and more women are needed in the Canadian military in order to fulfill a 1989 human rights tribunal ruling insisting the full integration of women.

Describing an evening at the Speakeasy is not a simple task. The beer is the same as in any other club, the service is friendly, and there is a distinctive local clientele. And among the laborers, the barrage of high school boys, and the office types stepping in for a quick drink on the way home to the suburbs, there is a type of comradery seldom seen in Calgary's other establishments. Rarely is there a tussle over a lady, and the atmosphere is pleasant and carefree.

Ever have one of those nights where you just have to go out and show off those new Armani virgin wool slacks you just bought? Or perhaps that silk Versace shirt looks too good not to be seen in public? No problem, the Concorde is the perfect place to display those designer threads. The closest thing Calgary has to New York chic, the Concorde has no problem attracting a young, hip crowd. Or at least those who like to believe they are young and hip.

     Most university students at one point in time--likely in the morning--wish they didn't drink that extra pint of beer. A pounding headache, nausea, bloodshot eyes and diarrhea are classic signs the upcoming day will not be a pleasant one.
