Howard Dean: Bad for Democrats, Bad for Democrats
The current Democratic Primaries have put the magnifying glass on Democratic candidates and on the Democratic Party as a whole. However, of all the Democrats, the greatest focus has been put on the former Governor of Vermont, Howard Dean. Outwardly, Dean has been portrayed as a leftist Democrat with a hot temper. He has been shown to have a lack of political suaveness and an inability to hold the interest of the public. Dean is now currently seen as a whining and confusing character. The fact that Democrats have made Dean one of their front-running candidates will only hurt the Democratic Party and will, by default, boost the lead President Bush will have as the incumbent. In plain terms, Dean will help George Bush get re-elected.

I know it isn't the students (even uber-over-achievers like us want to relax, socialize and have fun), and I know it can't be the athletics (we've won a ridiculous number of Sears Cup trophies and our basketball team is #2), so I'm left to point my finger at the Stanford Administration. But unlike those that have complained about the administration before me, I do not want to focus only on what effects the administration's policies are having on current students, but also on the effects they will have on alumni and school reputation.

Why We Support Israeli Settlements
An old joke tells of two men sitting together, complaining about the many problems in the world. Unable to contain the frustration any longer, one of them bursts out "It's all the fault of the Jews and the plumbers!" The other one looks at him, bewildered, and asks "Why the plumbers??"
