Student section blocked off


More Zona Zoo passes sold than seats in section

A jump in student attendance at football games has forced security guards to block admittance to the student section before the game-time whistle blows, officials said.

So far 11,640 Zona Zoo passes that grant UA students access to the student section have been bought this year, up from the 9,468 purchased last year, said Russ Dean, assistant athletic director.

The Zona Zoo pass has become a necessity for freshmen and sophomores, Dean said, resulting in more students attending the game. [Read article]

Cats' 9 lives not enough in loss to Ducks: Arizona 21 - No. 14 Oregon 28


Tuitama takes over, but Wildcats stumble in comeback bid

Like the old saying goes, the more things change, the more things stay the same.

The Arizona football team debuted freshman quarterback Willie Tuitama but still hurt itself with turnovers and mistakes in Saturday's 28-21 loss to No. 14 Oregon at Arizona Stadium.

"It's just how it is," said Arizona head coach Mike Stoops. "We just don't do all the little things right all the time. Learning how to win, for guys who've never won, it's extraordinarily hard for them to do." [Read article]

Letter from Siberia: portrait of a city


Irkutsk, Russia

Envisage a reality, far different from our own, fill it with clichés, fill it with passionless Soviet flats, fill it with nameless people; call it Russia.

To be true to form, let's blot out the sun with dreary, winter-soaked clouds and traipse down muddy Siberian streets. Let's eat at posh sushi bars with Mongolian hostesses (and waitresses named Olga), rub shoulders with burly Mafioso-types, and sit under a statue of Lenin orating to the masses - masses that have been conspicuously absent for some time now.

It was perhaps just a few inches of skin, the area encompassing the buttocks and hips. The surface area wasn't that much when you think about it, but it was just enough, effectively trapping two individuals within the same body.

That was the disfiguration that brought conjoined twin sisters Daisy and Violet Hilton to the stages of Vaudeville before adoring audiences during the Depression. [Read article]

What can be said about hair that hasn't been said before? It's important? Well, it protects our heads from all kinds of calamities: low branches, the hot Arizona sun, bird poop.

After all, the existence of hair has been a pivotal part of our human history. The cave men pulled the cave women by it during the Ice Age. Rapunsel let her man climb up it for wild nights of tower partying and fairy tale sex. Even today, don't we judge all politicians by the size and greatness of their hair? (So why didn't Kerry win then?) [Read article]
