EDITORIAL: SBRA vs. FUSA This is Naut a big deal

With so much being said about the current fisticuffs going on between FUSA and SBRA, we at The Mirror have to ask ourselves, what's the big deal? The SBRA probably should have realized a few people were going to balk at a $110 event, but then again, it seems like students who do decide to attend will reap the benefits of that extra cash.

Registrar plays favorites

The time to register for classes is once again drawing near, and as it does, some of Fairfield's commuters may be wondering, "Will I get into the classes I need or want to take?"

A school of assassins… but, they have a new name

Seven hundred innocent people were brutally massacred in their village not so long ago. Surely this can't be true... Don't fool yourself. They were murdered in and around El Mozote, El Salvador in 1981. What's even more tragic is that every tax payer has the blood of these victims on their hands.

LETTER: Government for the Students

To the Editor: I am writing in response to the article that you wrote last week about FUSA. It might have appeared to some readers that the article gave a tone that FUSA is not motivated this year.

LETTER: Know your stereotypes

To the Editor: Being Pakistani, I must be really out of the loop because I had no idea that a lack of makeup on Pakistani women was a stereotype. I found nothing wrong with the article on Benazir Bhutto except for its opening line, which read "Wearing lipstick and eye shadow, Benazir Bhutto is a far cry from the stereotype of the average Pakistani woman.

LETTER: He said it, and it’s hilarious

To the Editor: To those who have voiced disapproval of Don Partyka's comments, "He Said, She Said" is meant to be a joke. It's a way to add some humor to the paper. If you take this article seriously, you take yourselves too seriously. Lighten up, ladies.

EDITORIAL: Cheers and Boos

Cheers to Andrea Pelano '99 and the Freshman Year Experience program, which hosted a night at the Quick Center last week for Pelano to recount her traumatic story of being sexually assaulted at the beach while an undergraduate.
