Admissions goal imperils sports

I have just one question for the Arizona Board of Regents and the UA administration: If the UA raises admission standards, what will become of our athletic programs? Football is an exception, as it can't get much worse.

Graduate students seek respect

I am writing in response to two somewhat flippant and thoughtless responses to the issues of graduate student working conditions at the UA. The first was made by Laura Malamud in her article, "Graduate College will ask for more TA money," published Sept. 26. She states, "Some GTAs have complained of being overworked and underpaid."

The mass media has never been my favorite corporate monkey.

In my more foolish days, I would spend hours in a CNN/Fox induced coma, waiting zombie-like for any semblance of relevant information so I could go back to drawing on myself or some similarly productive task, confident that I was still a stud in the pasture of current events.

Likewise, I never really minded the talk show hosts. It was probably my morbid curiosity that led me to watch Larry King swing from nodding blankly and drooling to passionately sucking the buttocks of his guests, gape at Hannity and Colmes as they disgrace their respective ideologies, and see Alan Keyes flaunt his collection of sweater vests.
