Murder meat

Daily Pennsylvanian
University of Pennsylvania

Each year, millions of animals are killed for food, but most University of Pennsylvania students would not think of comparing this to the extermination of 11 million people by the Nazis during World War II.

Yet, according to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and a novel by Yiddish writer Isaac Bashevis, "In relation to (animals), all people are Nazis for them it is an eternal Treblinka."

Matt Prescott, the leader of the project called "Holocaust on Your Plate," explained that PETA wants everyone to know that "all beings feel pain, whether humans or animals."

Yet the majority of students in attendance said that one cannot compare the eating of animals to the murder of humans.

"It's a disgusting, horrifying comparison," freshman Michael Auerbach said.


Records refusal

Daily Bruin
University of California-Los Angeles

The University of California's motto may be "Let There be Light," but a recent lawsuit accuses the university of hiding its financial records in the dark.

The suit was filed April 1 after the university refused public records requests for information which would reveal data and planning on the UC Retirement Plan.

The university maintains it needs to keep investment information private to form partnerships with venture capital firms, which work with the UC under confidentiality agreements.

The lawsuit's plaintiffs, the San Jose Mercury News, the Coalition of University Employees and retired UC Berkeley physics professor Charles Schwartz, argue the state's information laws provide the public with a right to know, which trumps the university and its partners' right to privacy.


Pride prom

The Maneater
University of Missouri

It was not a traditional prom. There were no dress requirements, couples of same and mixed genders felt free to dance together and extra precautions were taken to prevent the dance from being crashed by protesters.

The Triangle Coalition, a University of Missouri student group that includes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students and their supporters, held the 2003 Pride Prom on Friday. The annual prom is held to celebrate Pride Month.

Senior Julie Ditmars said the dance was a good opportunity for everyone to get together because the prom was open to all on campus. She said that there was no inhibition for anyone participating.

"There is no stigma or judgment to attend a dance like this," Ditmars said.
