Former Access



party renamed


* THE NEW PHOENIX PAR-
TY IS ONE OF NINE RUN-
NING IN SG ELECTIONS.

By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

The leaders of the former
Access Party made a mytho-
logical move Wednesday by as-
suming the name The Phoenix
Party for the upcoming Spring
election.
The name change occurred
after party leaders unsuccess-
fully tried to re-acquire their
original n.! ae which was regis-
tered last week by Florida Blue
Key member Michael Shine.
"We wanted a party name
that would convey all the
things that we were feeling,"
said party advisor Andre
Samuels.
"The mythology of it paral-
lels our reality," he said.
According to legend, the
birdlike phoenix lived for 500
years, burned and later rose
from the ashes to live again.
Despite the new name and
logo, Samuels said the party
will be made up of the same
members and work toward the
same ideals that brought Access
into power last Spring.
"The party was always big-
ger than the name," he said.
A nominating convention,
which will be held in two
weeks, will allow Access vol-
unteers from the 2004 elections
to votefor students who wish
to run on the Phoenix Party
ticket.
"We want everyone to come
out and watch and participate,"
Samuels said.

Using previously held party
names, as well as having insid-
ers set up "dummy parties so
students 'don't know who to
vote fbr" are typical of SG's
past, Samuels said earlier.
In 2004, Access, Innovate
and Keg were the only parties
on the Spi ing ballot.
"I see all these parties as
actually a good thing," Student
Body President Jamal Sowell
said.
He added that when stu-
dents see multiple qualified
candidates running for office,
they also may become inspired
to get involved.
Students who wish to cre-
ate a party must apply at the
Student Activities Center by
Feb. 15.

Inmate's death likely a suicide


By: ELIZABETH PRANN
Alligator Writer

The Alachua County Sheriff s Office is investigating the
apparent suicide of a county jail inm .te in the fifth such
attempt to take place at the jail since July 2004.
John McPherson, 42, purportedly took his life by hang-
ing himself in his cell, ASO spokesman Jim Troiano said.
McPherson was charged with aggravated fleeing and
attempting to elude Gainesville police during an alleged
robbery on Nov. 16. He had been at the jail since Jan. 6.
Detention staff found McPherson when they brought
the deceased his breakfast and started CPR, continuing
until paramedics arrived. McPherson was pronounced
dead at the scene, Troiano said.
McPherson was alone in a two-person cell, a fact
Troiano said was due to that particular portion of the
jail- the adult male high-felony section- having only 28
of 32bunks occupied. Prisoners in this section are usually
housed in pairs.
McPherson left two notes, Troiano said, and although


the contents of those notes could not be released, Troiano
said they were extensive.
"There was a lot of information di-cuiss.ed however, I
cannot go into the contents of the note at this time."
Troi,amo said MIcPher-on presented no pret ious suicidal
tckdencie's hen he i-went through the routine scri-enring
process.
"We had no idea he was going to kill himself.
It was up to [the inmates] as well as the de-
tention staff, and we had no indication."
Jim Troiano
ASO spokesman

"This is an important thing to deal with when you're
taking away someone's liberty," Troiano said.
There were no reports from fellow inmates of conspicu-
ous behavior from McPherson.

Fraternities face sanctions for conduct violations


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

Two UF fraternities face possible sanctions after reports
of underage drinking, hosting an unregistered "pre-party"
and extending the pledge process beyond the allotted ten-
week period.
Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity was charged in violating
the Student Conduct Code by allowing underage drinking
at an unregistered pre-party on Sept. 25, a few hours prior
to the fraternity's registered safari party, where a 17-year-
old girl claims she was sexually assaulted by a fraternity
member.
The alleged pre-party incident involved four members
of the fraternity and three underage females. All names-
were redacted from public records without explanation.
Older brothers reportedly asked if anyone wanted alco-


hol before purchasing it for the underage females.
One of the females involved said there were about 15
couples at the fraternity hou-e prior to the party. They ar-
rived early because they knew they would be unable to
drink once the party began, she said.
According to reports, those involved began drinking in
different rooms of the fraternity\ house around 9 p.m
"We're redoing our risk management with our
events to make sure nothing of this nature can
ever happen again."
Chris Bucciarelli
Sigma Phi Epsiion president

Another woman involved, who admitted to drinking al-
cohol the night of the party, but not at the Sigma Phi Ep-ilon
fraternity house. arrived at about 11 p.m. She said there was


no guest list, and she was not checked in at the door.
.Chris Bucclarelli, Sigma Phi Epsilon president, said the
incident involved a few individuals who "wanted to do their
own thing."
The fraternity has already begun to punish some of the
individuals involved, and one member of the fraternity has
been suspended, he said.
Bucciarelli also mentioned changes the fraternity is mak-
ing regarding future house events.
SWe're redoing our risk management with our events to
make sure nothing of this nature can ever happen again,"
he said.
Charges were also filed against the Pi Kappa Phi
Fraternity for allegedly not initiating members by Nov. 6.
The date marked the end of the maximum ten-week pledge
process allowed by the university.
The fraternity has accepted all responsibility for the al-
legations.

GPD holds off on using 50,000-volt Taser shock device


* THE DEVICES ARE BELIEVED TO BE
RELATED TO TWO RECENT DEATHS.

By ELIZABETH PRANN
Alligator Writer

Unruly Gainesville residents will continue
to be spared from a possible 50,000-volt Taser
shock from police.
Gainesville Police Department spokesman
Keith Kameg said his police agency is holding
off arming their patrol officers with devices
made by Taser International Inc. until thor-
ough research and analysis of the weapon n and
its possible consequences is completed
The Security and Exchange Commission
also launched an investigation last week into
claims made by Taser based on company -con-
ducted safety studies of its device.
Two recent Florida deaths involving
police altercations in Pensacola and Naples
have been alleged to be related to the shock
delivered by Taser de\-ices. Howev\-er, both'


of those deaths also involved cocaine, which
some medical experts believe may exacer-
bate the risk of heart failure, according to the
Ass-ociated Press. Agitation or underlying
health problems could also be risk factors.
Taser International Inc. stands by its prod-
ucts.
"Taser technology saves lives every day,
and the use of Taser devices dramatically
reduces injury rates for police officers and sus-
pects.' according to a company press release.
Kameg said GPD is investgatng every
possible aspect of implementing use of Taser
devices, but his agency feels no urgency to
do so.
Many human-rights advocates want law
enforcement to stop using Taser devices until
Scientific evidence can show they don't kill.
According to an Amnesty International
report, the majority of police departments
in the United States using Taser devices are
in Florida. and police ma\ like Taser devices
because the\ are easy to car y, usable at a
distance and capable ot immobilizuinga tar-


get without, supposedly, causing permanent
injury.
In additionto safety concerns, Kameg said
supplying the approximately 300-member
team would be an expensive feat, considering
an hour ot training can cost up to $10,l000.
Security instructor Dane Dodd, a UT grad-
uate, under\nent what he
called general-application
training for proper use of a
Taser gun five 'ears ago.
He explained the
shock as being extremely
unco mfortable and stun-
ningly painful, making the
Kameg weapon very effective.
"Tasers are a useful tool
for officers," Dodd said.
However, Dodd also emphasized the,
responsibility that comes with carrying the
weapon. He said that an otticer should ex-
haust all avenues before using a Taser device
on an uncontrollable individual.
"The profile'o f'aof serious threat amnust be


dearly defined." Dodd said. "They must
kno\i their subject cannot be controlled and
there is a high degree of agitation."
let Taser devices are not considered fire-
arms. which makes them legal tocarryinmost
states without permits. That makes them legal
for UF student and nightclub bouncer Jordan
laglich to wield.
"I've been in a situation where a Taser
would have been beneficial," the Velvet
Lounge bouncer said.
He remembers a situation last year when
an altercation broke out in front of the club and
the appro.irnately 12 to 15 bouncers w working
that night were unable to settle the ro%\dy
crowd.
However, Maglich said he does not carry
any weapon when he works, and there are no
plans for him to start carrying a Taser or any
other weapon in the future.
Calls regarding the possibility of bouncers
' arrning Taser w\ eapon- \ were made to se\ eral
(,Gaine-ille-area, nightclubs, including Velvet
Lounge and :0S. but were not returned

NATIONAL

Investigation into CBS report intrigues professors


By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Alligator Writer

Recent turmoil concerning
CBS's failure to accurately exam-
ine President Bush's Vietnam-era
military record piqued the atten-
tion of several UF professors, who
have followed the scandal since it
broke nearly four months ago.
During the Sept. 8 broadcast
of "60 Minutes: Wednesday," TV
news veteran Dan Rather, armed
with four memoranda suggest-
ing Bush had received prefer-
ential treatment as a National
Guardsman, called the president's
military career into question.
An independent investigative
panel recently released its find-
ings that the documents were
ne. er properly authenticated The
CBS news division suffered from
a severe lack in judgment, the in-
vestigators concluded..
As. a result, four of the
network's top journalists found


themselves out of a job Monday.
Jon A. Roosenraad, assistant
dean of UF's College of Journalism
and Communications, diligently
followed the affair since CBS was
placed under scruntin\
"I think it iwas similarr to the
New York Times and Jayson Blair
[scandal]," said Roosenraad, who
teaches a class entitled "Problems
and Ethics of Journalism in
Society." "It started at the top and
reflected a total breakdown of the
system of what was supposed to
havebeen a ver ti l- proof, highly
respected news organization."
Telecommunications professor
-Joseph Glover agrees
"It's just another chipping
away at the veneer of trust that
CBS has tried to build up, that all
of the net. i-.i.lhks e tried to build
up," he said. "The problem is that
this affects the press in general,
;Tlevi ioni niews in particular. '
XAlthough the panel concluded
it could not prove whether the


broadcast was sparked by po-
litical bias during an election year,
UF College Republican'- President
Hunter Williams said he believes
the incident is another prime ex-
.ample of a liberal leaning in the
media.
"It's just another chipping
away at the veneer of trust
that CBS has tried to build
up, that all of the networks
have tried to build up."
Joseph Glover
telecommunications professor

"Releasing. fake documents
about a political candidate, no
matt~ i. hat party they belong to,
when the documents are obvious-
ly fake, is a clear bias," Williams
said. "The only reason you do that
is because you want to hit [Bush],
and you're betting that nobody's


going to notice or it's going to be
too late."
Mary Mapes, who produced
the segment, was among those
chastised by the panel for allow-
ing the story to run.
Mapes did not contact the
memo's anonymous source, sup-
plied by retired National Guard
Lt. Col. Bill Burkett, and was
unable to verify the document's
accuracy.
"It's dilticult to believe that
there wasn't some willingness on
the part of the reporters, the pro-
ducers, to accept what was before
them, what seemed to them to be
obvious,"-Glover said. "It's dif-
ficult to believe that there wasn't
some sort of political predilection
clouding their judgment."
Brendan [Moore. UF College,
Democrats spokesman, said the
"liberal news bias" is exaggerated.
.ltthough he said he religious l\i
watches both CNN and Fo\ News\
Channel, Moore said the media


primarily fails to live up to its
responsibility as a "watchdog of
politicians."
"It's true that CBS did not
check their facts it's true that
they should have made sure the
memo was legitimate," he said.
"However, the mainstream media
focused on this memo, and they
did not focus on the fact that there
are legitimate questions about
Bush's record in the National
Guard."
Nevertheless, Roosenraad and
Glover said they plan to make the
CBS blunder an important topic of
conversation among the students
in their journalism classes.
"It will be part of the lesson-
on being diligent about checking
your facts and about making sure
you have good sources and more
than one source, and that you
don't let your own predilections,
your own biases, affect your re-
porting," Glover said. "It's a very
good lesson in the basics."


New medical metaphors increase patient satisfaction


* ABOUT HALF THE U.S. ADULT
POPULATION FINDS MEDICAL INFOR-
MATION DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND.

By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer

It ma\ not be aid\i-able for physicians to
speak like five-star generals to their patients,
according to a new UF study.
Dr. Gary M. Reisfield, a professor at the UF


Health Science Center in Jac kson\ilUe. recently
published a study on doctors' use of meta-
phor. with their iil patients in the journal of
Clinical Oncology
"WAars on drugs. poverty and illiterac\ per-
iade our socieh. and \ ar tal k is eas1l adapt-
able to cancer," Re-stield -aid in a release
According to the study, the human brain is
wired to operate in metaphors, processing ab-
stract or complex\ concepts- in part b\ thinking
ot analogies derived from more familiar e\pe-
rience- Comparing a patient's struggle with


disease to a mil tar) battle can have unsettling,
violentt overtones.
Reifield bcgan- the stud\ when his aunt

"She was incensed by
this comparison and refused to go back to
him," he -aid "It's very dehumanizing to be
compared to a mechanical thing."
Roughly 90 million American adults


- about half of the U.S. adult population
- find it difficult to understand basic medi-
cal information, according to an Institute of
_Medicine studio published last year. Choosing
metaphors wisely can increase patient satisfac-
tion, improve healthcare outcomes and reduce
healthcare costs, said Dr. George-R Wilson III,
with whom Reisfield conducted the study.
The team scoured books, ne 4\ papers and
Web logs for metaphors and concluded that
while no metaphors are right or wrong, there
are appropriate comparisons for each patient.

UF PROJECTS

UF, engineering firms work on "green" gas station


By JEFF SIRMONS
Alligator Writer
jsirrnons@alligator.org

Soon, UF students could fill their gas tanks
while breathing fresh air at the world's first
"green" gas station.
UF's Rinker School of Building
Construction and Design is working with
Gainesville engineering firms to produce the
first energy-efficient convenience store with a
gas station and a Quiznos Sub. To become the
fourth "green" Gainesville building, they must
comply with standards set by Leadership in
Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED.
"In the long run, it costs less, it makes more
money and ithelps the environment along the


way, so it's a win, win, win situation," said
Dave Newport, director of the office of sus-
tainability at the school.
The Pantry Inc. plans on using this conve-
nience store as a model for future stores and
remodeling to current locations, Newport
said.
"This is not just a little thing-it's a big
thing. More than 100 sites will be guided by
this site," Newport said.
There is a possibility that the convenience
store will operate on power generated from
windmills in Kansas, Newport said.
-There will be an electric vehicle charging
station at the gas station, and also an infra-
structure that could support more advanced
fuels such as hydrogen, Newport said.


"In the long run, it costs less, it
makes more money and it helps
the environment along the way, so
it's a win, win, win situation."
Dave Newport
Rinker School of Building Construction and
Design director of the office of sustainability

"It's way ahead of its time," Newport said.
To further help the community, Quiznos
will hire children involved in the Reichert
House, a youth mentoring program for at-risk
children, Newport said.
Robert Walpole, lead civil engineer with
Causseaux & Ellington Inc., said the LEED


qualifications should be used as the bench-
mark for all future buildings.
"Obviously, the Pantry has very high stan-
dards by getting LEED certified," Walpole
said.
The convenience store starts construction
in July and should be finished no later than
December, if the proposal is passed by the City
Commission, Walpole said.
The convenience store will be located at
Main Street and North 16th Avenue, replacing
the now-vacant Dodge car dealership.
Gainesville is home to three buildings that
meet LEED standards, including UF's Rinker
Hall the new UF Orthopaedics and Sports
Medicine Institute and the Alachua County
Courthouse Criminal Justice Center.

Students returning to Riker Hall

A fire sprinkler system had
finally been installed in the dorm

Jail seeks improvements

SUICIDE, from page 1

"We had no idea he was going to kill himself," Troiano said.
"It was up to [the inmates] as well as the detention staff, and we
had no indication."
McPherson's room shows no signs of any suspicious activ-
ity or foul play, Troiano said.
The jail has been improving since the first suicide attempt
in July, such as replacing the normal 6-by-8-inch peep window
with glazed glass doors, which allows the detention staff to
clearly see into an inmate's cell, Troiano said.
"We are trying everything we can to keep those inmates and
our staff safe," he said.
However, Troiano said it is a difficult task because the previ-
ous attempts occurred in the section of the jail where inmates
suspected of having mental health issues are held. McPherson
was not in that area.
Troiano said he expects autopsy results today.

Editorial


Children first

Courts' priorities wrong

in adoption decisions
As cliche, as it sounds, it's time for somebody to think
about the children.
In a number of recent decisions, courts have been at-
tempting'to throw the institution of parenthood back in time to
the days when it was more socially acceptable to be a murderer
than a "bastard."
Evidence of this is not far from home. In Jacksonville, a
couple who raised a 3-year-old boy, Evan Johnson, since he was
two days old, have been ordered to give him to his biological
mother.
The mother, who had separated from the biological father
before she knew she was pregnant, had agreed privately to let
the defendants adopt Evan.
Two months after the couple began caring for the boy, the
father-not the mother-filed for custody before the adoption
could be finalized:
There were plenty of reasonable arguments for the father's
side. Since the adoption wasn't legally recognized yet, he had a
legitimate claim. Because Evan had been with his new family
for only two months, he may not have developed a bond with
them that would have been traumatizing to break.
But the father in the beginning did not even have the mother
on his side, as she supported the surrogate parents' right to keep
the boy--util it became apparent the father could win.
More importantly, after a long period of legal battles, Evan
has lived with the defendants for three years. To remove a child
from those who have been his parents in every sense but by law
for that long would be unconscionable.
This is not an issue of whether or not the result was right
under the law, but an issue of whether or not it was in the child's
best interests.
Unfortunately, the decision reflects the prevailing judicial
opinion throughout the state and the country that these are mat-
ters of parents' rights, rather than matters of children's rights.
Providing the most glaring evidence of this, the Supreme
Court has yet again cleanly extricated itself from the battle over
gay adoption.
Their continued refusal to consider this important social
issue is baffling. If the Supreme Court can see fit to rule on as
touchy a subjectt as the private practice of gay sex-a practice i
that does not affect public life, regardless of-whether or not you
agree with it on moral grounds-they most certainly should
not put off making a decision that could improve the lives of
thousands of children.
The principle is very simple: those who would make the best
parents should be allowed to adopt. If a gay couple can pass the
rigorous selection procedures and background checks that are
required under the current system, they should not be barred
from doing so.
Gay rights is and will continue to be a devisive issue in our
society. If the Supreme Court has decided if needs more time
to consider the correct position, fine. Better to make the choice
with" authority once than to deliver a wishy-washy plurality
that solves nothing.
But they should not duck the issue of adoption rights when
it comes up again. In the meantime, the right for our children to
have loving, supportive families is being neglected.
For the other cases, there is no excuse. When a suit such as
this comes up, there is only one thing the judge and jury must
do.
Think of the children.

Guest column

Democrats need clear goals, leaders


t hasn't been hard to argue with my Democratic
friends in recent years. The soulless party line they
follow ensures arguments without passion or rea-
son. I've found stirring up trouble is easy and entertain-
ing,.as unsustainable opposition often arises. You want
to encourage-hard work and smart investment? Then
tax the successful and give more to the mediocre. You
see inequality in the workplace and in schools? Then
give one group an advantage over another based solely
on race.
America clearly has turned away from many of the
classic liberal ideas that made the Democratic Party
strong and effective for decades.
Soon, it will be time for the Democratic Party to
choose its future. As party loyalists gather in Orlando,
they will be wise to remember'the lessons of 2004: never
forget the silent strength of the South, never underesti-
mate the power of decisive leadership and never deny,
the need for early, strategic planning.
While I tend riot to encourage the growth and
strengthening of the Democratic Party, as a political
nerd I'm somewhat, disgusted by the amorphous blob
that has formed from the carcass of the donkey killed
on Election Day. While I'll be a Republican until my
last vote is cast, I am disappointed to see a portion of
America represented only by the frightening figures of
Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy. The "leadership" of
the current Democratic Party has failed to define a vi-
sion for America's future.
There is little hope for the party as it stands today.
Some within the Democratic Party push for more of the
same: bland leadership, whiney dissent and undefined
policy. Other insiders call for the liberalization of the
party. Apparently, they want to create more distance


between the party and the thinking American voter.
Powerful Democrats should be shown the electoral
map, with its glorious spans of red. They should be re-
minded of the likely longevity of the Republican Party.
Regardless of the choice Democrats make in their Feb.
12 election, little change will occur in a party still cel-
ebrating its long-ago victories. The culture of America
has changed,but the party has failed to change with it.
As a card-carrying Republican, I'm not sad to see the
Democratic Party wither in the shadow of Republican
dominance. It's clear the Democratic Party needs new
life. The party needs a vision for America that can coun-
ter the clear Republican message. With the Republican
Party holding strong majorities in both houses of
Congress and in the presidency, the prospect of four
years of a purposeless minority seems dangerous to the
democratic process.
Democratic Party leadership has done little to inspire
and little to rally its troops. In the coming months, I
hope to hear something from the Democratic Party that
expresses a genuine plan for the future of America. The
Hillary Clintons and the Ted Kennedys are poor repre-
sentations of the beliefs of the average vyter. There is
hope for intelligent debate that will improve our politi-
cal process, but it can't come without a vision from the
left.
Until the Democratic Party defines itself as some-
thing other than "Not-the-Republican Party," it will be
easy to negate their arguments. To my friends on the
left, get it together-It'll be 2006 before you know it,
and we'll again meet on the political battlefield. This
time, I'd like to see you bring some ammunition.
Ail.,'ii Cilliii is a political science and economics sopho-
more.

Letters to the Editor
Student ambivalence means SG in
danger of remaining a private club
Editor: The Access Party did the
unthinkable last Spring: they beat the
party in power and saw very high voter
turnout. We were all promised a party
for the students, but, after whispers of
future taps and other perks in the ears of
the Access presidential ticket by Florida
Blue Key, it appears they've turned their
backs on the Gators. They ran on minori-
ties versus white fraternities, sororities
and typical Student Government, but
now they've cut out the minorities and
transformed into the malevolent SG we
all know and hate. Student apathy is at an
all-time high, and, while it's great lots of
kids know who Jamal Sowell is, they still
couldn't give a dog's crap about SG.
History tells us this corruption of the
students' trust will lead to the party's
downfall, but what's the point if the pro-
cess will repeat itself endlessly?
Either something major and historic
happens this SG election season, or SG
will remain a private club for over-in-
volved, resume-boosting political science
majors and aspiring law students to let all
their egos blow up and brag about how
important they are.

Government should not use terror in Iraq


Recent report by Newsweek should alarm every decent
American. It revealed the Pentagon is debating whether to
se "death squads" to quell the rebellion in Iraq.
According to Newsweek, one Pentagon proposal "would send
Special Forces teams to advise, support and possibly train Iraqi
squads, most likely hand-picked Kurdish Peshmerga fighters
and Shiite militiamen, to target Sunni insurgents and their sym-
pathizers, ... It remains unclear, however, whether this would be
a policy of assassination or so-called 'snatch' operations, in which
the targets are sent to secret facilities for interrogation." The strat-
egy is being termed the "Salizador option," referring to the Reagan
administration's strategy of funding or supporting "nationalist"
death squads to defeat rebels in El Salvador-a strategy which led
to many civilian deaths.
What the Pentagon really is talking about here is creating an
Iraqi Gestapo that would help us by using terror to frighten Sunnis
into cooperating with the new government. Newsweek quoted
one anonymous military source as saying, "The Sunni population
is paying no price for the support it is giving to the terrorists. From
their point of view, it is cost-free. We have to change that equation."
But to "change that equation" by using terrorism would be tanta-
mount to selling America's soul. We are supposed to be fighting
a war against terror, after all. And there seems to be a trend here.
First, the Bush administration told us it was necessary to classify
suspects from the Middle East as "enemy combatants," denying


Jason Levitt them the Geneva Conventions' legal protec-
Speaking Out tions for prisoners of war. We have been told
to accept that most of the more than 500
prisoners in Guantanamo Bay still have not
been charged. The few who were released tell stories of torture and
brutality, but we have been told not to believe them.
And then came the photos from Abu Ghraib. This time, the
sadistic brutality was in full view of the American public. The
administration told us the actions-werethe results of a few twisted
individuals. So far, I have accepted that in war the lines between
right and wrong are blurred. Sometimes, in order to win, terrible
things must be done.
SCase in point: American war planes firebombed Tokyo during
WWII, killing thousands of civilians. Some of the pilots recalled
getting sick from the smell of burning flesh coming from below.
The horror of this act only was surpassed by the atomic blasts on
Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These terrible acts helped bring the war
to a close, and therefore were in some way justified.
But America is now embroiled in a different type of war. We are
not against a country but the technique of using terror to achieve
an objective. Already, the Pentagon has come dangerously close to
crossing the line. If it decides to proceed with the plan to use "death
squads," it will be crossed. We will then have become the enemy,
and therefore it will be us we must destroy.
Jason Levitt is a journalism senior.

'2 Pianos' not just for pianists


s the dark, n~ d theater is il-
luminated by the soft, glow
of overhead lighting, two
characters stand on stage. Not two
people, but two grand pianos.
Soon after follow two men, the
characters of Richard Greenblatt and
Ted Dykstra, the same names as the
creators of the most recent production
at the Hippodrome State Theatre.
After several minutes of the two
men nervously whispering, making
faces and shuffling around, their
fingers meet the ivory keys and "2
Pianos, 4 Hands" bursts to life with a
full classical piano duet.
"2 Pianos, 4 Hands," however, is
more than just classical music.
In fact, the musical selection rang-
es from John Lennon's "Imagine"
to Elton John's "Bennie and the
Jets," with everything from Bach to
Beethoven mixed in between.
"2 Pianos, 4 Hands" follows the


lives of two
pianists,
Richard,
played by
Richard
Todd
Angle De Angelis Adams,
At the Hipp and Ted,
theavenue@alligator.org played by
Tom Frey
Also serves
as the show's associate director.
Richard and Ted are the show's
main dchiactEi. but the actor-, al.o
play the role-s ot parent's teachers, and
piano instructors.
This production is a little bit of ev-
erything. Part comedy, part musical
and part drama '2 Pianos~, 4 Hands"
follows the Richard and Ted's lives
from their childhood lessons to their
adult searches for fame.
"2 Pianos, 4 Handm will appeal
not only to tho'.e who ha\ e endured


musical lessons, but to anyone who
has had to work to pertect a talent. It
is a story ot the a.pirarion to follow a
dream and the loss of letting it go.
Though lighthearted, the play il-
lustrates the delicate moment when
the characters come to terms with re-
ality in their searches for stardom. It
contrasts the humor that comes with
learning an instrument with the more
serious moments of moving on:
Frey and Adams are no strang-
ers to .their characters. Frey has
performed in more than 200 produc-
tions of "2 Hand., 4 Piano,," more
-than half of them opposite Adams.
The actors swiitched roles for their
Gainesville productions.
"2 Hands, 4 Pianos" runs until Jan.
30 at the Hippodrome State Theatre,
located at 25 SE Second Place.
To purchase tickets, contact the
Hippodrome at 375-HIPP or online at

'Pit' traps critic


in odd scenario
S ex, violence and profanity aren't what I normally
imagine when going to the theater; however, "The
r\oti ei Pit" isn't a normal play.
Shamrock McShane's unsettling piece deals with the
problems and issues of the public school system, and it
does so in a way I definitely did not expect.
"The Votive Pit" focuses on
various stereotypes of teachers
I remember from growing up
S -- the psychotic history teacher
S who dresses in Colonial get-up
for no reason, the flamboyant
guidance counselor, the over-
Heather Berger the-hill teacher who just won't
Curtain Call retire. This aspect is believable,
theavenue@alligator.org indeed.
I just don't remember having
teachers killing students at my middle school.
Things start to get strange right around there.

Writer crosses into dark side with sordid short stories


Wonder how often Rod Liddle
heard he could go blind from
whacking off.
Because in his debut book, "Too
Beautiful for You," virtually no
sexual act goes unpunished.
Reading Liddle's collection of
interconnected stories is like having
sex in the backseat of a "Tales from
the Crypt" episode.
One woman, Anna, slowly turns
into a cockroach from a combination
of depilatory cream and hours in a
tafining booth. She also could have
metamorphosed due to a one-night
stand with a married man who has a
demon in his espresso machine.


Or maybe, just maybe, poor
Anna's skin turned black and shiny
because the insect life featured in an-
other strain of Liddle's world finally
rose up to overtake humanity.
The author, the associate editor
of a British news magazine called
The Spectator, gave up a position
as news editor of BBC's "The Today
Program" because of a conflict of
interest in writing his column in the
British newspaper The Guardian.
I can't imagine what kind of
journalist Liddle is, but he's a master
at holding back what journalists are
trained to shove up front: This man
paints a story in the negative space.


He is British, after all, and every-
thing is backward over there, right?
But the unveiling of critical
details turns all rules ass-end up.
Suddenly, a tale of a man getting a
blow job in a park from his mother-
in-law falls into a whole new light.
His stories no longer are sordid
bits of gratuitous fiction but depar-
tures in which Liddle succeeds in
taking the reader with him without
judgment, to view humanity's dark-
er side even though Liddle often
takes the reader where no person in
his right mind wants to go.
Liddle succeeds in being almost
funny even titillating in a


"Very Bad
Things"




Off the Press though
theavenue@alligator.org many have

like the man who craved his ex-
girlfriend because all her. impor-
tant parts tasted like Marmite and
Worcestershire sauce.
Liddle tipped his hand as a nov-
ice in the art of fiction the book's fi-


nal story, "The Lost Honor of Engin
Hassan." I knew I'd be cleaning my
mental palate with some chick lit
and waiting for his next book before
I proclaimed him a great read.
He wrote dialogue for a Muslim
terrorist using the exact turn of
phrase that fell out of the mouths
of his twenty-something South
Londoners. Proximity might have
sold "It's just not on" as a colloquial-
ism but not to the point of crossing
countries and cultures and into the
mouths of terrorists.
Just because the devil lived in
the espresso machine does not still
mean he's not still in the details.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

Lee disappears in lackluster first half at Auburn


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

AUBURN, Ala. After his 4-point, two-
rebound performance against Florida State,
forward David Lee put in extra hours of
practice and seemingly earned his penance
with a team-high 17-point, seven-rebound
game against Arkansas.
hI the first half of UF's first SEC road
game Wednesday, however, Lee once again
disappeared.
Against Auburn, Lee had three turn-
overs, two fouls, one rebound and no
points while attempting one shot in the
opening period. Lee scored his first points
of the game with 18:28 remaining in the
second half.


SIZE DOESN'T MATER: Despite the vast
size advantage the Gators had against the
Tigers, Auburn outrebounded and out-
scored UF in the paint in the first half.
With only one player taller than 6-foot-6
on their roster, compared
to UF's seven, the Tigers
held a 15-14 rebounding
advantage and a 20-16
scoring advantage in the
paint at halftime.
But according to Lee,
the energy a team has
Lee playing on its home court
can outweigh any physical advantage.
The key to success, Lee said, is to re-
main humble, yet aggressive.
"It comes down to not going anywhere
V


and expecting to blow anybody out," Lee
said. "If you go in there thinking it's go-
ing to be an easy game because of a team's
record or a team's height, every team in
the SEC is very tough on their home floor.
You've got to go in there and grind it out,
possession by possession."

BEYOND BASKETBALL: For Donovan, coach-
ing goes beyond the hardwood.
Despite the fact that he doesn't agree
with some of the decisions made by some
of his former players including Teddy
Dupay's alleged gambling and Major
Parker's indictment on federal drug
charges, Donovan said he feels obligated
to help his former players recover in their
private and professional lives.


"I am disappointed at the decision
some young people have made," Donovai
said. "But for me, as a coach who coach
them and told them during the recruiting'
process 'I'll be by your side, I'll work witl
you,' and things like that, I think I have tc
be somewhat supportive and understand
that decisions were made that weren'
right."
In the wake of Parker's indictment
Donovan said he needs to aid, rather thai
shun, his former staff assistant:
"Now I have to try and help some o
those people," Donovan said. "I need t(
help Major Parker after this whole thini
finishes to be a contributor to society an
get his life back in order."


Roberson scores season-high


MEN'S, from page 20


rebounds and four steals in the final 25
minutes.
"In the first half, I was really taken
out with foul trouble," Lee said.
Along with Lee, a pair of UF fresh-
men played physically to shift a halftime
deficit into a momentum advantage.
Center Al Horford grabbed a team-
high 10 rebounds, while Brewer ignited
UF's play on both ends of the court.
Brewer, who finished with a career-
high 14 points, scored on three consecu-


tive shots less than four minutes into
the second period, capping a 10-0 half-
opening run.
But perhaps Brewer's greatest con-
tributions came on the other end of the
court.
With UF leading 67-65 with less
than a minute remaining in the second
half, Brewer stole the ball from Auburn
guard Ian Young at midcourt and raced
down the floor for a fast-break layup
11hile being fouled.
"I was reading them all game." said
Brewer who finished with three steals.
"I was just waiting for him to show me
the ball. And I went for it."


GREGG, from page 20


about Peck receiving Southeastern Conference
Coach of the Year consideration, let me be the
first. UF has done nothing but improve or find
ways to overcome obstacles since Peck's pain-
ful first year in 2002-03.
Now, before you think this column is
meant to gush over the Gators, a word of
caution: this all could come crashing down
in the SEC, perennially the best conference in
women's basketball Even with the slip-ups


Tennessee has had, the Vols could turn around
and whip UF's Gator-hide.
UF showed in 2004 that they can stand up
to the bullies in the SEC and pulled off the
huge upset against New Mexico in The Pit. It's
time for the ladies to take the next step.
I'll give them this: if they can go where no
UF basketball team in the last three years has
gone, then they would be the success story
that trumps any success story from 2004 in
Gainesville.
Likely, though, only 3,000 die-hard fans
-i ill notice.

Doach's exit

I LOCKSLEY OFFICIALLY
)INED ILLINOIS STAFF.

By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Writer

As the college football re-
uiting world turns, so do the
ators.
The past three months have
!en a period of transitional
cruiting for UF as coaching
aff members have come and
)ne. Now, Wednesday's loss
recruiting coordinator Mike
acksley could turn the Gators'
recruiting
world- up-
side down.
Locksley,
who also
served as
the run-
ning backs
cksley coach, was
one -of two
Members remaining from Ron
look's staff. Without him, the
ators might lose out on sev-
al prospects that were high.;
i Coach Urban Meyer and the'
:w staff.
"I think it's a significant
ss," said Jamie Newberg,
:out.com's national recruiting
lalyst. "He was the glue that
Ad the rcrLuiting together
r the transition period with
coach [Charlie] Strong.
"Losing a guy like Mike
xcksley will definitely prove
?stly. There is a handful of
iys that the Gators could lose
iton."


As recruiting coordinator,
Locksley was in charge of cen-
tral Florida and Georgia, as well
as recruiting in the Northeast
and west of the Mississippi.
Jerome Hayes, of Bayonne,
N.J., ranked the No. 14 lineback-
er in the nation by Scout.com,
also said that Locksley's depar-
ture could hurt UF's chances.
Losing Locksley to Illinois
will translate to even more
work for Meyer and his staff.
Meyer will prepare to host his
second v. av c vt i -i itne re ritut:,
Friday. Next week, he'll hit the
recruiting trail for in-home
visits.
"This is a good coaching
staff and Urban Meyer is a
good recruiter," Newberg said.
"However and this goes
with all coaching changes
- there is. a smaller recruiting
window and shorter amount of
time for recruits.to get to know
Meyer."
With signing day fast. ap-
proaching, Meyer will have
just three weeks to establish
relationships with recruits. But
Newberg said that if the new
staff works diligently, it could
still finish with a top recruiting
class.
"In a perfect world, kids
would choose a school based'
on the school and that's it," he
said. "The bottom line is that
the coachl plaN er relationship is
huge in the rccntiting proce-i "
Oral commitments are non-
binding until a national letter-
of-intent is signed on National
Signing Day on Feb 2

In the marathon that is a season, one game
will not determine success.
But one game can change a lot.
Tonight, the UF women's basketball team
hosts No. 3 Louisiana State at 6:30 in the
O'Connell Center. The Tigers are the highest-
ranked team to come into Gainesville since
then-No. 2 Tennessee in 2002.
UF (11-4,2-0 Southeastern Conference) has
only beaten three top-five teams in its history.

with Peck

Since starting at UF in the fall
of 2000, I hadn't seen a year like
2004.
The Gators were, collectively,
a shank short of a double bogey.
It wasn't a good year.
In fact, any 17-year old
Gators fan could challenge Frank
Sinatra's song right now.
But
B u t
2005, at
least on
the sur-
face, has
9 the mak-
ings of a

Donovan's struggles in postsea-

groundbreaking one
\-hich is wihy the charge for
a better 2005 for UF will come
from...the women's basketball
team?
Yeah, it may seem like a
stretch. But look here Gators fan:
you haven't had much to cheer
about these days. Beggars can't
