  Theatre Preview: Jack and John went up the hill to rob the Group of SevenPDF files may take a moment to load

You can't ask for much more in a play than sex, art, hockey and murder. Ground Zero Theatre and FireBelly Theatre team up to bring you ample proportions of all four with the world premier of Neil Fleming's play John Doe/Jack Rabbit.

"I laughed out loud when I first saw the script and I read the whole thing at my computer in one sitting," says FireBelly Artistic Director Abby Charchun, who also plays Vicki in the production. "As soon as I read it I knew I had to act in it."

  Smoking excusesPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet

Smoke from a handful of crushed marijuana leaves and some paper that is mixed with the air of a well-ventilated venue is harmful to your health? If anybody believes that then I have a bridge I would like to sell them. It is not about health and it never was about health. It is all about de-normalizing smoking, and smoking bans are a big step in that direction. Unfortunately, the hospitality sector is caught in the cross-fire.

  We rememberPDF files may take a moment to load

Jan Zygadlo and Andrzej Kreutz are two Polish-Canadians for whom Remembrance Day holds a special significance. Each year on November 11, they reflect on their own experiences during World War II and are thankful just to be alive.

Kreutz lived in Krakow, Poland when the war broke out. Although he was only a young boy at the time, the memories remain clear in his mind.

  It's that Maclean's time of year againPDF files may take a moment to load

Oh, how quickly we forget.

The University of Calgary began dropping in the Maclean's university rankings in 1999, when we slipped from the top 10 to 12th place, finally reaching our current 14th in 2002. For this time, the U of C administration has held their position that Maclean's wasn't an accurate representation of reality at the U of C.

  Be careful what you wish forPDF files may take a moment to load

Premier Ralph Klein has said a number of times this week that students will not face the so-called double-bump tuition increase next year. Although he (sort-of) promised the government would step in if necessary, Klein called on the institutions themselves to come up with revenue shortfalls. Pure genius, Klein. Calling on universities and colleges to foot the bill is a powerful reminder of the creative market economy that makes Alberta so great.

  Eagles and Frogs bounce DinosPDF files may take a moment to load

Our Dinos got a taste of March Madness Nov. 5-6, traveling down to the land of 'sweets' and hurricanes commonly known as the United States.

The men started out in Fort Worth on Saturday, taking on the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs--a first-division NCAA team. After bouncing back from a 46-28 deficit at the half to 53-50, the Dinos were ultimately tripped up by the Frogs for a final score of 87-66.

The Dinos women's volleyball team played with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies like they were 12-year-olds with a brand-spanking-new video game Nov. 4-5. Irrelevant analogy you wonder? They never are.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

[Re: "An abortion of democracy" November 3, 2005]

I am writing to say how much I enjoyed Sara Hanson's article, "An abortion of democracy." [The article detailed] a documentary that was completely shot by students who interviewed the citizens of Calgary in many locations. I am glad to see the Gauntlet addressing the issue of voter apathy due to the general feeling of being disconnected from the political system in Canada and Alberta.

[Re: "In defense of Bush" November 3, 2005]

Thank you so much for opening my eyes to the plight of George W. Bush. Little did I know what psychological torture the beloved president was enduring for the mistakes others made after Hurricane Katrina.

Despite the Dinos men's soccer team's best efforts at the Canada West playoffs in Langley, B.C., the University of Calgary couldn't come up with a result.

"We competed. It shows we deserved to sneak in like we did," said keeper "Two-minute" Rick Urbanczyk.
