Clark warns of weak U.S. foreign policy
Gen. Wesley Clark speaks passionately about foreign policy and the importance of using war as a last
resort during his speech at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center on Wednesday.
By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gen. Wesley Clark said America's
foreign policy has been mostly inef-
fective in a speech on Wednesday
night commemorating the fourth
anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. He
took hard stances on economic, mili-
tary and diplomatic issues.
"You don't win a war by kill-
ing people, you win it by changing
people's ideas," Clark told an audi-
ence of about 1,000 at the Stephen
C. O'Connell Center. The speech
was sponsored by Accent, Student
Government speaker's bureau.
Clark, who made an unsuccessful
bid for the Democratic presidential
nomination in 2004, said he hadn't
ruled out the possibility of running
for president again in a press confer-
ence before the speech.
He also commented on the dev-
astation of Hurricane Katrina, saying
he would have been on the ground in
New Orleans from day one.
However, foreign policy was a
larger theme of the general's speech.
While the United States has not been
hit by another terrorist attack since
Sept. 11, 2001, the number of terror-
ist attacks worldwide has increased,
He advocated reducing the
government's overreliance on the
military and instead empowering
ideological arguments against those
who use religion for murder.
"If you want to win, you start
going on the offensive with ideas,"
"If you want to win, you
start going on the offensive
U.S. Army general
The military is the first weapon if
someone wants to tell the American
public he is serious; however,
the military shouldn't be the first
weapon of choice, Clark said, "but
the last, last, last."
He also said the American
government needs a new strate-
gic framework for success in the
war -against terrorism and should
be communicating with Iran and
North Korea about the proliferation
of weapons of mass destruction. -
Concerning economics he
warned that the United States is
facing competition from China and

Hazing inquiry lingers
* CHARGES HAVE NOT BEEN DE-
TERMINED AFTER THREE MONTHS.
By KYLIE CRAIG
The Dean of Students Office has yet
to file charges against Pi Kappa Alpha
Fraternity, though a hazing complaint was
filed against the organization more than
three months ago.
The complaint, filed by Pike member
Troy Devine, includes detailed reports of
hazing, online conversations with other
members about hazing and, in one conver-
sation, a death threat made against him.
Though the office received it in June,
Associate Dean of Students Paige Crandall
said the alleged incident remains under
investigation because Devine withdrew the
complaint but later decided to follow up on
it in July.

said. "We're trying to make sure we have all
Devine originally sent the complaint to
Director of Student Judicial Affairs Cyrus
Williams, who resigned in early August to
attend graduate school.
Crandall has taken on Williams' respon-
sibilities until his permanent replacement
arrives sometime in October.
Crandall said her office has not yet con-
tacted the fraternity because charges have
not been determined, and also because
Devine sent the same complaint to Pike's
"They (national officers) are at this point
not taking any type of movement," she said.
The complaint details a hazing proce-
dure called "scrubbing," where pledges
were told to scrub the bathroom floor of the
fraternity house until their knuckles bled.

Books, coffee may mix

Despite opposition from UF's li-

Starbucks franchise at the rebuilt Library

In an effort to keep up with top
universities, UF plans to take a seri-
ous look into providing more com-
prehensive healthcare coverage for
its nearly 4,000 graduate assistants.
While nothing is definite Vice
President for Human Resources
Kyle Cavanaugh said Wednesday
that UF would explore the market
to see what kind of coverage could
be offered in place of the annual sub-
sidy graduate assistants are given to
help cover healthcare expenses.
"It's an important issue for us
in terms of our ability to compete
nationally," Cavanaugh said.
He added that though it's too
early to estimate when a decision
would be made, healthcare at UF
was an issue of "ongoing concern."
UF offers healthcare coverage
to graduate and undergraduate
students through Scarborough
Insurance Company. But the cover-
age doesn't reflect the increasing
needs of graduate assistants, such
as eye or dental care, said Todd
Reynolds, co-president of UF's
graduate student union, Graduate
injury only," Reynolds said. "It's not
Reynolds said the union has
fought to secure comprehensive
healthcare since 1980.
For the 2004-2005 school year,
graduate assistants who either
taught or conducted research for UF
were given a $400 subsidy to help
pay for healthcare. This year, those
students will receive $500.
"It's not enough to cover every-
thing," he said. "It's not even close."
Erica Pittman, chairwoman of
the union's healthcare committee,
said more than a dozen universi-
ties comparable to UF in graduate
education offer subsidies that cover
a majority of the healthcare costs for
their graduate assistants.
However, UF graduate as-
sistants buying coverage through
Scarborough are paying for insur-
ance plans that do not differentiate
between them and the rest of UF's
population of nearly 49,000.
"We're thrown into a pool with
many, many more undergradu-
ates," Pittman said. "The existing
Scarborough plan has never been
particularly good for graduate stu-
Scarborough provides two
healthcare plans for treatment only
at UF's Student Health Care Center.
Plan A costs $364 for students 25 and
younger and $490 for those older.
Its Web site states Plan A is meant
as a supplement to another plan.
Scarborough's Plan B insurance
covers treatment at and outside UF
at a yearly cost of $1,262, or about
$105 a month, for students 25 and
younger and $1,588, or $132 a
month, for students 26 and older.

UF junior Sean Liston had been count-

an orange-and-blue e-mail popped up in
Liston's university account suggesting he

ice cream on the night of his birthday.

The Dean of Students Office and the
Student Health Care Center cooperated
to develop this program in January 2004,
said Vinnie Taranto, technology specialist
at the Dean of Students Office.
There were some computer problems
preventing students from getting the
messages in the summer, Taranto said.
The program now sends an average of 25
e-mails per day.
Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski said
each e-mail offers a free movie ticket do-
nated by Gator Cinemas and a free ice
cream donated by Cold Stone Creamery
between the hours of 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. on
each student's 21st birthday the time
when most students go to bars.
The e-mail urges students to avoid
drinking games, sleeping when intoxi-
cated and warning that large amounts of
alcohol consumption may result in death.
Students who have received the e-mail
share mixed views.
"I absolutely laughed at it because go-
ing to get ice cream and watch a movie is
not at the top of my list

to celebrate my 21st

asking about the coupons and the student's

any alcohol-related consequence as severe

"My biggest need right now is just hav-

Ana Maria Saaibi, a fourth-year mechanical
engineering student who came to UF from
Tulane University. "I have only a suitcase
with two pairs of jeans and two pairs of
flip-flops. That's all I have."
University Police officials warned the
students about common misdemeanors,
underage drinking and parking problems.
Jeff Holcomb of the UPD Community
Services Division recommended new stu-
dents ride bicycles around campus instead
of driving a car because of the hassles
involved with parking violations and the
difficulty of finding parking.
"It's a hunting permit, not a parking de-
cal," he said.
Diana Hull from the Office of the

UF administration hadn't decided if the
hurricane evacuees, now classified as tran-
sient students, would be able to enroll at UF
permanently in the Spring.

UF officials and union
should look to future
ll the fighting and bureaucratic paperwork are over.
The Editorial Board feels like a child whose sepa-
rated parents miraculously reconciled.
University officials have decided to enter negotiations with
the faculty union, ending years of strife and bickering.
But is it really all over?
The Public Employee Relations Commission sided with the
ruling of the First District Court of Appeals, which stated that
the union should have been recognized since 1976.
UF's highest governing body, the Board of Trustees, decided
to reject the union's official existence in 2003.
So that's two years when university officials could do as they
We'd hate to see them get away with that and continue along
their rosy existence as if it never happened. The United Faculty
of Florida was forced to deal with endless red tape and court
proceedings. Every effort fell to it simply because the univer-
sity wanted to jump-start its intended replacement, the Faculty
What can we say? Life sucks.
But revenge isn't in the best interest of anyone. If the union
and administrators hate each other, every negotiation will take"
months to resolve, while the faculty waits for the security it
In a press release, UF President Bernie Machen pointed out
that even though UF wasn't recognizing the union, faculty was
given a 5-percent raise this year and a 4-percent raise last year.
It was all part of the administration's campaign to be trusted
so that the faculty would think a union unnecessary
Administrators prefer not to be bound by unions because of
a fear that union officials won't understand money constraints
and thus will demand more than can be given responsibly.
Instead of just saying this, the administration makes point-
For years the prominent explanation was that UF was part
of the American Association of Universities, and most member
universities don't have a union. Ergo, we don't need one.
That's just weak.
Then UF officials tried to get the faculty to warm up to
We understand the merits of this, and we don't blame the
officials for wanting it. It keeps a venue for the faculty's voice,
while maintaining the administration hierarchy.
But it's like trying to get a child to play with the original
Nintendo when he has owned an Xbox. Both include all the
characters and fun fighting, but one has a bunch of nifty
It just wasn't going to happen.
Machen wanted the faculty to trust that he would protect its
interests without a legally binding agreement. While he might
very well be trustworthy in this.job, a union is there to make,
sure everyone plays fair. Laws are set in stone; people's whims
So the Editorial Board is glad Machen and other administra-
tors decided to give it up.
And if Machen really wants more of the faculty represented,
then maybe both sides can discuss it civilly.
Each of the excluded schools, such as the Levin College of
Law, could vote individually. Now that there's no threat of
these faculty members involuntarily preventing the union's
existence, officials can talk about including those who want to
We're confused about whether these specialized schools
want it or not, but we think it's worth pursuing.

Florida's coast in danger of oil drilling
s if the lack of response to Katrina's devastat-
ing wrath and the jumbled conflict in Iraq aren't
enough, Republicans are ready to add insult to
Environmentalists get ready; you're going to have to
defend the Gulf of Mexico coastline from drilling.
Since Katrina has damaged much of the oil production
and refining capacity in the Gulf, lawmakers are opting to
permanently remove the moratoriums on drilling along
the Gulf coastline.
Proponents of the bill claim only a small section of the
eastern Gulf would be used. The drilling is to begin about
100 miles south of Pensacola and stretch 50 miles to the
But this initially small concession could merely give
way to greater problems in the future. Eventually, the
entire coastline might be opened.
Furthermore, most Florida politicians have opposed
offshore drilling for years, claiming oil spills or pollution
would upset tourism and ruin the west coast's beaches.
Seems obvious, right?
Leaders from the House Natural Resources Committee
are writing the bill, which most likely will split the Florida
But the controversy reaches beyond Florida. Mississippi
residents have been battling their own senators concern-
ing the same issue since August before Katrina hit.
In fact, 3,000 residents from Mississippi rallied in late
August, protesting drilling near the barrier islands and
Gulf Islands National Seashore.
The real message is clear. Hurricane Katrina is the
scapegoat that oil drilling proponents having been look-
ing for to work a long-standing agenda into the forefront
of the Florida Legislature.
Amy Eisinger Florida Republican senators
Speaking Out claim that opening this small section
for drilling, would lower gas prices
and put less strain on the oil economy as a whole.
Sound good? Sure. But oil rigs can take years to set
up, meaning that most of the damage from Katrina will
be corrected before, any drilling in the Gulf can even
Draining the Gulf of its natural resources will offer no
immediate relief from the strain Americans currently face
at the gas pump.
The federal government needs to look for short-term
ways to alleviate the spike in gas prices due to Katrina.
However, focusing on the Gulf isn't the answer.
The proposal is expected to be added to a larger budget
proposal that Congress will review later this month.

Letters to the Editor
Use of "nigga" detrimental to society
The generic picture of Kanye West and
Condoleezza Rice in Tuesday's Alligator, not
to mention the inscription of "Nigga please!"
inside the cartoon bubble, was largely ir-
responsible and inappropriate on the part of
the cartoonist and the editors overseeing the
publication of the cartoon.
As the university is struggling with a
decline in minority enrollment, I believe the
cartoon undermined the efforts of student and
administrative groups that strive to make UF
a more inclusive community.
Sure, some black Americans have taken
ownership of the term "nigga." Yet others,
like myself, feel the word is detrimental to the
growth of my community. Furthermore, we
deserve the right to be respected in a media
that is so widely circulated on campus and the
greater Gainesville community.
While all the black students and other mi-
nority students on campus claim the right of
free speech, we also need to be careful of how
we identify ourselves and our communities.
That same right to free speech that protects
us protects others, including the artist of
Ashley N. Mitchell
a N .
Cartoon correctly brings issues forward
It's used generously by the black rappers
we listen to. It's used flippantly by black ac-
tors and comedians in the shows we watch.
Hell, it can even be overheard while walking
through Turlington Plaza. Yet when a skinny
white cartoonist uses a derivative of the word
to make a point in a political cartoon, it's la-
beled ignorant and derogative.
I'm sorry, but the Black Student Union's
complaint has absolutely no merit, and their
response is nothing more than a knee-jerk,
calcified, obligatory reaction.
. If members of BSU are offended by the use
of this word by others at UF, I have two words
for them: Charlie Murphy.
When Charlie Murphy, a comedian from
"Chappelle's Show," came to UF last, semes-
ter, he used the word several times and even
made jokes regarding Muslims.
Where was BSU? Rolling on the floor
I don't blame them. I was laughing too.
However, unlike the various comedians
who use the word, Marlette's brilliant cartoon
was not meant to make people laugh. It was
meant to draw attention to the absurdity of
West's remarks regarding President Bush
by having Condi Rice say a phrase that is
completely out'of character for her. Yet, it's a
phrase that West and other rappers know all
Marlette and the editorial staff used the
word in the right context and in the right envi-
ronment and should be applauded for bring-
ing these sensitive issues to the forefront.
Freedoms should be used with wisdom
I write to you in response to the recent car-
toon depicting Kanye West and Condoleezza
Rice as well as the numerous letters to the edi-
tor that have addressed campus diversity in
recent months. I believe the use of the n-word
in the cartoon reflects the poor judgment of the
artist and editorial staff of the Alligator.
Despite the use of this word in popular
media and the youth culture of today, many
individuals with a sense of history, justice and
equality still find the n-word, and all other
symbols of hatred, to be. distasteful and in-
sulting. For many, the n-word is not a term of
endearment or a hip lyric from the latest CD.
Certainly, the issues of "freedom of expres-
sion" and "freedom of the press" underlie the
decision to run the cartoon, but one would
hope the exercise of these freedoms would be
guided by wisdom and discretion.
On the matter of campus diversity, it is in-
teresting to note that most of the letters to the
editor on the subject of campus diversity have,
in a very stereotypical manner, correlated in-
feriority or low standards to this goal. As we
know, UF has very high admission standards,
which have been established by the creden-
tials of our students. We also know that under
the One Florida Initiative, race is not used in
the admissions process. I personally know that
UF seeks to attract the very best students!
Therefore, any argument that equates di-
versity with lowering the standards is a weak
argument. From my perspective, the notion of
diversity is about more than just increasing
the number of underrepresented students
(structural diversity). Diversity also includes
how we interact with each other. Becoming a
university that better reflects the demograph-
ics of our state will not in itself make us a more
prestigious university. However, if we just try
a little harder to move outside our comfort
zones and reach across imagined human
boundaries, each of us might be a little better
prepared to flourish in the world beyond our

Whistleblower allegedly robbed after complaint
'America needs to lead'
CLARK, from page 1
India and that those countries' markets are four times the size
of the United States'.
He said economics builds education, which builds a military
challenge. China is the one country in the next 30 or 40 years
that will pose a threat, he said.
Therefore, the United States needs to strengthen its relation-
ship with Europe, he said, because of its similarly-
sized economy, population and shared values.
On "We're the leader," he said. "America needs
Campus to lead."
The audience reacted with bursts of applause
throughout the speech.
"General Clark isn't the most charismatic man in the world,"
said UF student Ray Seaman, a political science major. "But his
statement definitely rang dear with a world and nation that is
desperate for real leadership."
In a question-and-answer session after Clark's speech,
several students expressed concerns about America's inaction
about the genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan.
"We've seen it, called it genocide and should've put an end
to it years ago," Clark said.
He encouraged students to involve the cable media in Sudan.
"You need the power of imagery," he said.
HAZING, from page 1
as "any form of physical abuse,"
as well as "any activity that might
reasonably be expected to bring
physical harm to the individual;
any activity that might reasonably
be expected to degrade or otherwise
compromise the dignity of the indi-
vidual," among others.
Devine's complaint also included
a copy of an online conversation
with another fraternity member in
which he said, "I'm gonna slit your
throat" to Devine.
Although he said he was "ostra-
cized" for speaking up about the
hazing, Devine wrote in the com-
plaint that other fraternity members
felt the same way he did.
One was Pi Kappa Alpha house
dad Ricky Caplin, who Devine said
was also outspoken internally about
problems in the organization.
Devine also named a fraternity
member who experienced "scrub-
bing" as a pledge in Spring 2005 and
whose parents saw his wounds from
"They wanted to make an issue
of their son's situation until some
students in the chapter convinced
them that it was not related to the
house but that their son had a roller-
blading accident," Devine wrote.
Devine didn't end his complaints
with the dean's office and national
headquarters. On June 4 he also filed
a report with the Gainesville Police
According to the report, a GPD
officer was contacted in .reference to
a burglary at the Pike house, where
Devine was living.
The report states the officer could
not locate any signs of forced entry
to gain access to the house, but that
the suspect had "ransacked every-
thing" in Devine's room.
"There was peanut butter, honey
mustard and shower gel thrown all
over the walls, floor and bed," an
officer wrote in the report. "About
$1,800 $2,000 ... worth of stereo
and computer equipment along
with approximately 30 DVDs were
The report emphasized the lack
of evidence indicating forced entry
from outside the house. Police asked
Devine if he had problems with
any of the fraternity members, but
Devine responded that he didn't,
according to the report.
Previously, Devine said he didn't
want the fraternity shut down by
any means, but he wanted changes
to be made regarding the hazing.
His complaint also included a
letter sent from his mother detailing
her son's experience.
"Once all these things came to
light, -as a parent, I could not stand
by and allow these children to be
abused," she wrote.
Hazing is against UF policy and
according to the Office of Fraternity
and Sorority Affairs, "those being
hazed and the perpetrators may
face sanctions up to and including
removal from the university and a
loss of chapter recognition" if they
are found judicially responsible..
Crandall said if the fraternity is
charged and found guilty of hazing,
suspension of the chapter "would be

Canelas said more than one million people

old Library West yearly.
"I don't think ifs our job to be a profit-mak-
ing center," she said.
Miller said that money is used to expand
and maintain UF's dining facilities.
Canelas said the money Aramark pays" to
run a franchise, which includes promotion
material, Starbucks decor and extra storage,
would sap students' wallets.
"All of these costs are being passed on to
students in higher coffee prices," she said.
Last Spring at a Library West-planning fo-
cus group, students suggested a study lounge
with a "Starbucks-like" environment.
Student Body President Joe Goldberg said
these focus groups showed students' desire
for a full-service coffee shop in the library.

that happens," Goldberg said.

Less Than Jake pitches in to help hurricane victims
By RACHAEL RYALS
With all the ways to help with.
the Katrina aftermath, rocking out
to hometown heroes Less Than Jake
has to be the most fun.
A serendipitous moment at
Common Grounds brought the idea
to life when Jason Rockhill, co-owner
of Common Grounds, approached
JR, saxophonist of Less Than Jake,
about a benefit show. JR had been
thinking about doing a benefit show
since the hurricane hit and was re-
ally excited about the offer.
JR said Common Grounds has
been very supportive and helpful in
the process of setting up the show,
which will be held Sunday.
Less Than Jake recorded its last
record, "Anthem," in New Orleans
over two weeks.
The band also frequents the city
in its constant touring.
"It is a mysterious city with
amazing people, amazing food,
amazing parties and such a beauti-
ful vibe there. that I couldn't help
but feel like I lost something special
too," JR said.
Less Than Jake will be joined
by Savage Brewtality at Common
Grounds. Unlike most Less Than
Jake shows, the benefit will be ages
18 and up, unless accompanied by
a parent or guardian. All proceeds
from ticket sales will go directly to
the American Red Cross.
JR said the band is in the process
of trying to get some companies
to match the money raised at the
door so even more money can be
JR said his granfahter used to
tell him to look out for your own.
Because of this, he feels like every-
one should want to help out the
victims of Katrina.
"They are Americans, and there is
no reason that Americans anywhere
should be living like animals. If we
can raise some money that will help
put shoes on feet, food in stomachs
and water to drink and bathe with,
then it's worth it to help," he said.
Less Than Jake's hometown-
shows usually sell out, but because
the show was unexpected and
also supports a good cause, tickets
may sell out quicker than normal.
Rockhill said that the show will defi-
nitely sell out. Do not expect to wait
until the last minute and be able to
get in at the door. Tickets are on sale
for $15 at Smoke, 1007 W University
Ave, and Common Grounds, 210
SW Second Ave.

Demonic possession causes tossing and turning
By MELISSA FILIPKOWSKI
It's not every day you get to pay $7 to
crap your pants in the middle of a crowded
movie theater. Unfortunately for me and
everyone else in the theater, that day came
rather abruptly when I decided to review "The
Exorcism of Emily Rose." -
Better classified as a dramatic thriller
with a splash of horror than straight horror,
this film stirs up enough fear, anxiety and
propaganda to keep you tossing and turn-
ing in your bed for hours. Directed by Scott
,ounrety UT aony riUlurt, c nlIridlilll ll Ill;.
Jennifer Carpenter plays a young girl possessed by demons in Scott Derrickson's new
thriller. "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" is based on a true story.
Derrickson, the movie is based on the pos-
session of a German girl named Anneliese
Michel. As if the thought of demons pos-
sessing a human body isn't scary enough,
the phrase "based on a true story" is thrown
in with the picture.
With other horror movies I can walk out
and calm myself down by saying, "It was only
a movie." But with this movie the only thing
running through my head was, "That poor girl
actually went through all that."
You might be thinking, "Hollywood makes
it so much worse than reality. Gosh Melissa,
how gullible can you be?" But let's be frank
- demonic possession is demonic posses-
sion. Hollywood or not, it's a scary freaking
The movie is not your typical exorcism
movie. It is not 1973's "The Exorcist," nor does
it strive to be. So if you're going into the movie
to compare it to the other film don't.
Instead of focusing on the actual practice
of the exorcism, it delves into explaining the
possession from a medical and psychologi-
cal standpoint. The movie is a debate of re-
ligion and supernatural activity versus the
practices of medicine and psychology in the
Laura Linney ("Love Actually," "Mystic
River") plays an ambitious lawyer defend-
ing the priest who performed the exorcism
on Emily. There's not much background for
Linney's character, and all we know is that she
really wants to win the case in order to make
partner status at her law firm. While working
on the case she starts having hallucinations
similar to Emily before she was possessed.
Tom Wilkinson ("Batman Begins," "Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind") plays the
priest who attempts to exorcise the demons
from the completely whacked-out college girl
Emily, played by Jennifer Carpenter.
The movie centers around the trial of
Wilkinson and then cleverly flashes back to
the events that happened to Emily.
It's spread out about 60-40 between the
two. The scenes that depict what happened
to Emily are genuinely scary and the special
effects weren't overdone to the point that it's
While there is no head-spinning, the de-
mons contort Emily into ridiculously crazy
positions that the Kama Sutra can't top and
make her look like a psychological basket-
She screams out ancient devil languages
and managed to freak me out above and be-
yond my expectations.
Overall, there is enough evidence from
both sides of the movie to make audiences
ponder their own beliefs and get the wits
scared out of them.
All I have to say is, if you're going home to
an empty house, enjoy a night of your mind
playing awful tricks on you. And don't forget
to keep the crucifix and holy water handy.

pictures, illustrating how to

a one-page disclaimer on how vigi-

Bar caters to quieter sound
W alk down the steps of this under-
ground bar and you'll feel like
you're in lower Manhattan.
The stage is never empty, and the walls
are never devoid of soundwaves ricochet-
ing off every comer in Gainesville's new bar
- Damon's Downtown.
"There is a need for a little something dif-
ferent as far as the music scene goes," said
Matt Bennett, owner of Damon's Downtown.
The stage at Damon's Downtown will host
toned-down musicians, Bennett said.
The bar officially opened
the doors to its underground
location, at 101 SE Second
Place, Suite 100, on Sept. 2.
Bands play on a stage sur-
rounded by round tables
draped with red tablecloths
and adorned with small, red
"Every night there is live music," Bennett
said. "I'm from Austin, Texas. The music scene
is pretty big there. I'd like to see Gainesville
Domestic beer and wine are served along
with complimentary bar snacks. Eventually,
the bar hopes to have a wide variety of beers
grace its shelves. In fact the venue will un-
dergo more changes and improvements.
"We had a baby grand opening," Bennett
said. "It was more like a sneak opening. We
didn't make that big of a deal. It was more like
'Hey, guess what? Here we are.'"
Damon's Downtown may not look the way
it does in Bennett's mind, but the music play-
ing at Damon's is the bar's foundation.
"When I decided to open this place, my
main objective was to keep it simple," Bennett
said. "Good, quality music and good beer. The
rest is icing on the cake."
The "icing" is anticipated to come in about
Damon's Downtown and Big Lou's New
York Style Pizzeria are teaming up. Customers
will be able to enjoy Damon's entertain-
ment and order something off the menu at
Big Lou's. Big Lou's will deliver the food to
Damon's, which is just down the street.
"Eventually, I want to be open during the
lunch hour, serving Big
Vea Lou's food and have live
Vera music while people eat
Hadzi-Antich their lunch," Bennett said.
Playlist As far as the set up
email@example.com the funky, red-lit bar is
just the beginning.
"I'm eventually going to
have sofas and other comfortable seating along
the walls," Bennett said. "I'm not done."
Even though there are still changes to be
made, there is live music tentatively scheduled
Tuesday through Saturdays starting at 8 p.m.
"We've noticed a lot of the places around
town cater to a louder scene," Bennett said.
"This venue will have acoustic, funk, groove
and blues stuff. We're going for quality, not
After the bands play, there are different acts

Nothing stings like after-sex regret.
oThat immediate post-orgasm feeling of dis-
N appointment runs over you as you realize one
simple fact: You made a mistake.
Suddenly, we're in survival mode, thinking up escape
maneuvers and justifications to tell your friends. But no
matter the plans running through your mind, the over-
whelming regret lingers through the whole experience
-. and every memory.
Just about anyone who is sexually active has experi-
enced it. And I believe after-sex regret is the single most
common cause of the one-night stand. Except for the
dearly labeled one-night-only hookups, you expect to
sleep with someone more than once. Then when you do
get together, you're confronted with your mistake and
regret steps in.
For me, regrets come with two admissions. First, I
must admit that the stories and scenarios I told myself
about this person were lies.
ciled myself to
the fact that I
had again idol-
ized this man
only to be disap-
pointed by his
mediocrity, or perhaps his humanity.
As shallow as I feel when this happens, it's still a com-
Clothes can work magic, but the spell doesn't last
after you've seen him naked once.
The second big cause of regret is bad sex, but that's
obvious because you call back after good sex.
The last reason for regret remains, for me, the most
upsetting. We regret when after sex, we realize that we
just took everything from him that was worth having.
Nothing feels more disappointing than justifying a bad
personality with a nice body.
Sexual attraction cannot be the only attraction. When
it is, we regret.
This realization of the power of sexual attraction leads
to my second required admission of the after-sex regret.
We lie first to ourselves about them.
Lying to yourself is one thing. We lie to ourselves
about our diet or about getting ahead on schoolwork.
We lie to ourselves every day.
Secondly, we fall victim to our own libidos.
Personally, reconciling my own weakness is the diffi-
cult part. Accepting that I made a mistake has never been
my strength. Pride rears its head as I swallow the truth of
After the sex regret runs over you like a "dis-orgasm,"
and you clearly see for the first time the other person's
flaws. The sting occurs at the precise moment when you
see yourself, flaws and all, as well.
Writer entertains without wisdom
Me Talk Pretty One Day
Publisher: Back Bay Books
Beware. You are about to enter the quirky,
mind-boggling world of David Sedaris.
In his world everything is entirely
deranged. Obsessed music fanatics pose as fathers,
students pass off cigarette butts and
orange juice as art forms, and a turd is
the focal point of an entire chapter of
In "Me Talk Pretty One Day," Sedaris
narrates his life with wit and humor.
The mundane and trivial events that
so many of us take for granted sud-
denly become fodder for his overactive imagination.
One great thing about Sedaris is that he deals with dif-
ficult subjects in his writing. In this book homosexuality,
drugs and family relations are all given the stage. Yet
unlike many other books dealing with these subjects,
you don't get the sense that Sedaris preaches; rather he
simply tells his life story as it happened.,
The tone of the book is reminiscent of sharing stories
with a friend, and it allows the reader to get a great
glimpse inside his life. It is a good autobiography be-
.cause Sedaris neither blames himself nor anyone else
for the problems he has encountered.
Like a newscaster he just tells it like it is. But this
creates a downside.
One thing that detracts from the book is sometimes
important events in his life are glazed over while minor
details are allotted an entire chapter. It makes the reader
wish there was more structure in Sedaris' life.
The breezy nature of the narrative also begs the
question: Does the book require more
Katie depth in order to truly be a great
Oft tre Piss I would have to say yes.
r. .- ,,,...-.:..., r.., .., Some of his stories seem less than
autobiographical; he tells them just to
give the audience a laugh or two.
The best authors leave you walking away feeling
enlightened, but with Sedaris I only felt entertained.
Even though I certainly recommend the book because it
is interesting and a great way to kill time waiting for the
bus or relaxing while taking a bath, I wouldn't recom-
mend that you buy it.
Unless you have previously read Sedaris and love
his style, I would suggest that you go check the book
out of the library.
Although his work is humorous, his writing is not for
everyone, and he seems to throw in more than enough pro-
fanity to please the bawdy appetites of college-age readers.
Lounge concept works; food doesn't
T he concept of the new Fiis
Restaurant and Lounge im-
pressed me: the fusion of world
cultures, food; atmosphere and people.
The menu looked appealing, with its
gourmet transcontinental food, such
as the bistec palomill and eggplant rol-
latini, at student-budget prices.
But although presentation counts,
taste makes the grade.
And it's not a passing grade if the
bad taste still lingers.
On one hand Fius Restaurant and
Lounge has what many Gainesville
restaurants lack: a trendy atmosphere,
late-night hours, a worldly menu and
even an entry access via elevator.
The elevator, furnished with a ro-
mantic loveseat, takes you to the top
of the :08 building to an intimate room-
once home to the Waterbar.
The totally revamped and reno-
vated Fiis changed from just a bar
into a dining and lounge area, with
four high-top tables and big, plush
Its atmosphere is becoming, emu-
lating nature with a waterfall feature,
white curtains and leafy trim. Yet the
piping along the
ceiling, hard metal
chairs and heavy
sic add an industrial
vibe. I started with
Fius bites that are
the perfect after-nightdub munchies.
The coconut taster, lightly fried large
coconut shrimp, was served with
a honey-sweet marmalade cocktail
sauce. From the Greek platter I dipped
warm, crispy grilled herb-encrusted
pita bread into an intensely flavored
medley of black olive tapenade, sun
dried tomato and feta cheese pesto,
and roasted garlic :and cilantro hum-
I tried the crepe Florentine, which is
spinach, feta cheese and sliced grilled
chicken rolled into a crepe. I liked the
creamy blend of feta and spinach, but
the crepe Florentine tasted rather ordi-
nary, almost bland.
Even so, Fiis'
hip scene, friendly,
Chan Tran laid-back service

until I encountered
the chicken curry.
Indian chicken curry, with steamed
rice and pita bread, was served to my
degree of spiciness. Yet I swallowed
the ocean when I swallowed the
chicken. I couldn't taste the curry in
chicken curry because it was so salty.
I gulped down five glasses of water
and was still dehydrated for the rest
of the night.
I asked myself, "Would I eat here

Spread 'n' Shred to clash with SEC
Kim Klement/ Alligator
Andre Caldwell is anxious to finally unveil Urban Meyer's com-
plete offense, including the infamous hook-and-ladder.
* GATORS SET TO EX-
POSE MEYER'S FULL
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
There's a reason why
some people call Urban
Meyer's offense tricky and
gimmicky. But so far in his
two games as UF's coach,
the only electric play to leave
Meyer's headset was a 26-
yard Andre Caldwell reverse
against Louisiana Tech.
Tennessee's arrival, how-
ever, could spark a spread-
"This is one of the big-
gest games, so this is where
you pull out all of the stunts
and all of the big plays that
we didn't want to show
teams the first two games,"
. Caldwell said. "We just felt
we'd win with what we've
had we were a better team
with better players. This time
we're going to spread it out
and show them what we've
got and throw at them."
A more liberal Spread 'n'
Shred playbook should do
plenty to increase national
attention for UF's first-year
coach. It should also length-
en Phillip Fulmer's workday.
Well aware of the nuances
that the spread-offense pres-
ents,-Fulmer has familiarized
the Volunteers with both
Utah and UF game film.
"They just make you de-
fend every bit of the field,
and then they complicate it
with the ability to throw it
down the field with great
receivers and it's tough,"
Fulmer said. "It makes you
be disciplined in your assign-
ments. You're going to give
up some plays but you have
to hang in there."
UF has occupied itself
with the basics of the offense
in its two games, meaning
that a plethora of plays and
offshoots remains to be un-
veiled. .Expect to see more
receiver play at the H-back
position and more misdirec-
tion plays Saturday and in
games to come.
Caldwell and Chad
Jackson have even been
practicing Meyer's famed
hook-and-ladder. The play, in
which the quarterback passes
to a receiver who pitches to
another receiver, was used to
spring Utah's Paris Warren
into the end zone during the
"He's going to show you
a little bit of everything,"
Caldwell said. "You're going
to see some tricks in one of

UF win could help sway top recruits

Alligator Staff Writer

man-child, wearing solid Tennessee or-
Picture Siler, one of UF's leaders, chasing
down Chris Leak instead of Erik Ainge and
Rick Clausen this Saturday.
If you think this is weird, don't. Siler
nearly chose Knoxville over Gainesville,
and this weekend some highly touted
recruit will likely make a similar decision
based on the UF-Tennessee game.
Several of UF's prospects will be in at-
tendance, and many others who are watch-
Devil Rays 5
ing on TV could be swayed by the brand of
football they see.
"Well I know we can't release names,
but there's going" to be some of the best
players in the country,';
Meyer said. "I think for
any program in a game of
this caliber, where the en-
tire country is watching,
they want to see the style.
They want to see the
atmosphere, and I know
Meyer it's going to be electric, so
yeah, this is a big part of recruiting."
One of Meyer's unnamed players is
wide receiver Percy Harvin. According to
*Jennifer Magley became the third UF
women's tennis player in the last five
years to be ranked No. I in the country
by the Intercollegiate Tennis Assocaition
Scout.com, the five-star Harvin has been
timed with a 4.35-second 40 yard-dash and
will visit campus Saturday. Other interested
recruits scheduled to attend the game in-
clude five-star receivers Jamar Hornsby and
Chris Bell. You can bet local prospects and
national names Tim Tebow and C.J. Spiller
won't be far away, either.
WHAT TEAM UP NORTH?: UF's rivalry week
began with talk of adding kerosene to the
UF-Tehnessee fire. Instead, Meyer, who
fanned the flames with his former teams,
has been wielding more of a fire extin-
guisher than blowtorch. While it is believed

How could you forget?
So what happens after that?
Fans get a hold of Moreau's
phone numbers and death threats
Moreau was on the crew for this
weekend's game, but Southeastern
Conference supervisor of officials
Bobby Gaston wisely reassigned
him, according to Florida Today.
The real issue here is the fact
that Moreau's life was threatened
for a mistake. Moreau admitted
to Florida Today that he blew the
call, but is that a reason to threaten
another man's life?
Fans get so angry over what? A
game? Moreau makes one mistake,
and it's alright to call him and
threaten to kill him?
Moreau's mistake happened to
come at the wrong time in front of a
Somehow, I doubt that anyone
that made a death threat has never
made a mistake.
But fans only remember that
one call, not the countless correct
ones that Moreau previously made
in his 12 years as an SEC official.

Meyer's plays to showcase offensive ability
FOOTBALL from page 21
A hotter question is how the Spread 'n' Shred will
fare against Southeastern Conference speed. With
slower Mountain West players in 2004, Meyer suc-
ceeded in scoring 41 and 35 points against Texas A&M
and Pittsburgh, respectively. Still, critics point to the
increased difficulty in running option-based plays
within an elite conference. Indeed, Saturday will be
Meyer's SEC litmus test.
"It's all relevant," Fulmer said. "The guys in Utah
were working against the same kind of football players.
The things that go with the offense, with the option and
things are hard to defend. A lot of people run options
and reverses. It goes back to the best players doing their
assignments and making plays."
Speed, according to Caldwell, is
"We're going to prove it to ev-
erybody that with this team and our
speed, the spread-offense is going to
be very successful," Caldwell said.
"We're going to get a lot done and
score a lot of points against the big
teams and the fast teams."
You'll have a much better idea Sunday morning.
Meyer keeps respect and focus for Tennessee

GATOR WALK CHANGED ... AGAIN:
After, experimenting with a longer
route against Louisiana Tech, the
Gators have settled on their original
Gator Walk route. At approximately
5:50 p.m., players and coaches will
disembark from busses at the cor-
ner of Gale Lemerand Drive and
University Avenue. Fans can then
greet them as they approach the
north end of the Swamp.

Wise likes UF's back row
By DAN TREAT
Standing 6-foot-3 and 6-foot-2 respec-
tively, it isn't often that Kisya Killingsworth
and Kari Klinkenborg find themselves eye-
to-eye with their opposition.
However, that's exactly what happened
this weekend when the Gators faced players
-such as Southern California 6-foot-5 Bibiana
Candelas, Notre Dame's 6-foot-3 Lauren
Brewster and 6-foot- 2 Carolyn Cooper.
"The biggest question mark a year
ago, and it was really in many ways
m ~ our Achilles' heel, was the inexperi-
ence of our serve receivers."
UF volleyball coach
Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
Middle blocker Kari Klinkenborg isn't used to looking
up to her opponents. Some tough back-row defense
helped Klinkenborg stand up to taller competition.
Those three players, all seniors, have the
ability to hit the ball over the outstretched
arms of players the size of Klinkenborg
and Killingsworth, which is why UF Coach
Mary Wise was particularly impressed with
her team's back row defense as they went
2-1 during the weekend at the Dome Rally
tournament in San Antonio's Alamodome,
home of this year's national championship
"The biggest question mark a year ago,
and it was really in many ways our Achilles'
heel, was the inexperience of our serve
receivers," Wise said. "Jane Collymore,
Marcie, Hampton and Rachel Engel were
seamless this weekend. They were so good,
and [look] what a year of experience has
done for them.
"The difference is how we measure up
against [players like Candelas and Brewster].
The big physical players, we [had] to get bet-
ter at defending them in the back row because
they're going to hit over us. That's exactly

Vols safeties lack
By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
Fireworks peppered the
dark Knoxville sky following
Tennessee's comeback win
against UF last season.
A year later, a rivalry known
for its pound-the-football men-
tality could be redefined by
some new fireworks.
The Gators aerial attack
has soared so far and with an
untested secondary visiting
the Swamp on Saturday, the
Volunteers could have trouble
matching up in the passing
game. Offensive coordinator
Dan Mullen wants to keep
UF's play calling balanced.
"I think last year we were
60-40 [run to pass], but at
the same time, our average
halftime score was 31-10,"
Mullen said. "Playing in the
we're going to be in a game
week in and week out. We're
going to have to find a balance
in our play calls."
Against a Tenessee defense
known for its punishing front,
UF might want to follow in
UAB's footsteps. Not only
did the Volunteers secondary
struggle in their season opener,
allowing UAB quarterback
Darrell Hackney to pass for
282 yards and one touchdown,
but the Gators also passed the
ball with ease in Knoxville last
Leak finished with three
touchdown passes and 286
yards in a losing effort, and
the game put Chad Jackson
on the map with his 81-yard
touchdown reception. Jackson,
who finished with 649 yards
and 6 touchdowns in 2004, has
emerged into one of the UF's
top weapons. Jackson leads the
team with 243 receiving yards,

Antwan Stewart and Jonathan
Hefney, both converted corner-
backs, could have similar diffi-

played well against UAB, but
at 5-foot-9, 174 pounds, is
vastly undersized and inex-
perienced when compared to
UF's receiving corps. And after
stumbling against the Blazers,
Fulmer benched Stewart in fa-
vor of true freshman Demetrice

While Hampton and
Collymore are more renowned for
their offensive statistics combin-
ing for 204 kills on 557 attempts
this season they are two of five
Gators averaging more than two
digs per game.
Leading that group is Erigel,
who has already collected a SEC

award this year, and, with 165
digs, is on pace to shatter both

also presents problems for an
opposing front row. McGinnis,
who has 18 kills this season,
feels that if passes are crisp off
the serve, she'll be able to draw
blockers away from her hitters
with the threat of a kill.
"If I can be a weapon, then
I can make the defense and
the blockers worry about me,"
McGinnis said. "So I can pull
the block towards me and get

Tennessee's only experienced secondary player
is senior cornerback Jason Allen, who's leading the
Volunteers in tackles for the second consecutive
Leak's proven play against the Volunteers
has him confident about UF's offensive potential
"We have some big-time playmakers here, and
we've got a lot of confidence in them," Leak said.
"We're going to do the best we can to make this thing
go, and the guys know what they are doing."
Tennessee likely will try to limit UF's receivers
with heavy bump and run coverage.
But Fulmer knows long strikes, like the one
Jackson showed last year, are inevitable
"You're going to give up some plays," Fulmer
