Seeking substance

IT SEEMS wrong for me to give advice to incoming first years. I don't have enough life on me to be handing out pearls of wisdom, to act as if I know something special.

Open letter from the 12 Society

PEOPLE OF the University: It pleases us to announce the formation of a new secret society at the University, the 12 Society. You see, the way it happened was this--we (there were 12 of us, of course) were sitting around on Monday (July 12th), and we figured it would be really cool to form a secret society.

Feminism faces further obstacles

THIS IS for all the sweaty half-shaven men who like to sit around gas stations and gawk at young girls: Get a life, because we are. In Arizona, women hold the top five elected offices in the state.


Opinion

It's cool to be smart

SEVERAL years ago, the Faculty Senate--chaired at the time by Prof. Jahan Ramazani--started an initiative that was termed, in its broadest sense, "Intellectual Community." By that we meant to focus on what is at the core of the University experience, what in our judgment makes U.Va.

Coping with unfamiliar family life

I HAVE heard people say that the only constant in this world is change. But when it comes to the constants of childhood--the way things were when you were a kid--change is as welcome a houseguest as your Aunt Edna, who can't stop pinching your cheeks as if you were five years old. Most students go to college with the knowledge of looming adulthood, but take the strong stance that they will not be shaken from the foundations that make up who they are.

Open letter from the Twelve Society

PEOPLE of the University: It pleases us to announce the formation of a new secret society at the University, the 12 Society. You see, the way it happened was this--we (there were 12 of us, of course) were sitting around on Monday (July 12th), and we figured it would be really cool to form a secret society.


Opinion

Black nationalism not separatism

About half way through last week's column "Race nationalism serves no purpose," Michael Clarkson makes the very astute claim that racial "nationalism" creates racial "unity." This is probably accurate.


Opinion

Burn flag, not constitution

When you think of one issue that desperately requires this nation's immediate attention, one thing that cries for all of us to unite in passing a constitutional amendment about, what comes to mind?


Opinion

Kory settlement offer never mattered

I GUESS we're supposed to feel really stupid right about now. With Alexander "Sandy" Kory's alleged greed exposed, we're supposed to fall all over ourselves weeping bitter tears of shame over the agony through which we put Richard Smith, Bradley Kintz and Harrison Kerr Tigrett. Perhaps you missed our "moment of revelation." Last week, The Cavalier Daily obtained a copy of a letter to Smith's attorney from Kory's lawyer.

Tales from an old country

OUR TOUR guide wouldn't have cut it in America. Her voice carried no more than three feet, her composure faltered any time a motorcar honked, and she left out important information even though she went on for two hours.


Opinion

GOP needs increased social focus

WE COULD immediately tell that the letter was a clever deception. I had my suspicions the moment my roommate pulled the envelope from the mailbox and said, "It's from Steve Forbes!" Then he added, "It can't be that Steve Forbes... can it?" To my surprise, it was the Steve Forbes who's running for President, and he (according to his letter), wanted us to look at a fact sheet he had typed up and answer a short survey.
