Rally attacks Likins' decision to stay in FLA

Over the course of the past two weeks, the Fair Labor Association has taken a pounding on college campuses across the nation. Anti-FLA activities continued yesterday in front of the University of Arizona Administration building, where the UA chapter of Students Against Sweatshops staged a rally to vocalize their support of the Workers' Rights Consortium. "Likins has said that he's been waiting for an alternative," said John Hardenbergh, an SAS member and a political science senior. "Well, Peter Likins, we have an alternative and it's a damn good one." They draped an SAS flag over the building's "administration" sign and chanted loudly with hopes of having the administrators on the seventh floor - where UA President Peter Likins' office is located - hear them and come down to watch.    [More]

Editorial: Small steps keep social awareness alive
[news] In past weeks, the university and the community have taken what seems to be a more pro-active stance against hate crimes- one that will prove to be far more effective. As recently as last semester, the university community was stunned by a hate crime, combated the forces of evil for a fleeting moment and let the issue dwindle - until a similar or more appalling crime was committed.    [More]

The boring 'Nine Yards'
The new comedy, "The Whole Nine Yards," fails to go the distance. Perhaps this would not have been the case had the movie's jokes not been so flat, the timing so terrible and the characters so predictable. It is hard to place the blame on any one person, though. Rather, it seems as if the film's comedic failure is a result of an equal collaboration between the filmmakers and the stars themselves.    [More]
