Sitting In On Democracy: Students protest Bush speech


UA students were nearly arrested yesterday after staging a sit-in in the ROTC building to protest the war in Iraq, the military recruitment of young people and President Bush's State of the Union address.

Gabriel Matthew Schivone, an undeclared freshmen and member of The World Can't Wait, watched as police surrounded the building, declaring it a "crime scene." He said he was worried his friends would be arrested. [Read article]

An intelligent discourse on intelligent design


Earlier this month, the official newspaper of the Vatican weighed in on the debate over intelligent design in the classroom by supporting the claims of those who have said that it is not a scientific theory and should not be taught as one.

The article appeared in the newspaper L'Osservatore Romano in a special section meant to address the controversial topic, which has been widely publicized in America in recent years.

As a theory, intelligent design probably doesn't deserve all the criticism that it draws, but the decision to prevent it from being taught in public science classrooms is a good one. [Read article]
