Miller's activism on Turlington

College politicos debate Wal-Mart
By KIMBERLY GOUZ
-Alligator Contributing Writer
Some came waving American
flags while others were adorned with
peace pins Sunday night at the "Great
Wal-Mart Debate" on the Reitz. Union
For the 150 members of the College
Democrats and College Republicans
who attended, the debate symbolized
more than a discussion of ethics con-
cerning the retailer, questioning the fu-
ture of the American economic system.
"I think Wal-Mart has created the
global model for retailing in the 21st
century, and it bodes ill for the inter-
national work force," said David Hoch,
a lecturer in the College of Business
and an adjunct professor in the Levin
College of Law. "As long as no curbs
exist on how little corporations like
Wal-Mart may pay overseas workers,
the race to the bottom will continue."
The Student Government-spon-
sored debate, costing an estimated
$950, was followed by a screening
of the documentary "Wal-Mart: The
High Cost of Low Price" by Robert
"I think Wal-Mart has created
the global model for retailing
in the 21st century, and it
bodes ill for the international

College of Law adjunct professor
The film uses interviews with
small-business owners, Wal-Mart cus-
tomers, former Wal-Mart employees.
and overseas factory workers to accuse
the retailer of union busting, exploit-
ing its workers, relying on foreign
sweatshops for merchandise, driving
out mom-and-pop shops and forcing
employees to depend on government.
subsidies for health care.
Thomas Jordan, the state chairman
of the College Republicans of Florida,
spoke out in defense of the company.
"I support Wal-Mart because they
do arguably the best job of offering
the lowest prices to consumers and the
highest earnings to shareholders," he
said. "I would argue that Wal-Mart is in
the place that it's in because it deserves
to be there."
Jordan said it is unfair to expect per-
fect performance of any company.
"Sure, you punish them for abuses
when they occur," he said, "but to label
them as evil for particular abuses, I feel,
Chase Welt, a former Wal-Mart em-
ployee and UF student, also defended
the retailer during the debate.
He said Hoch's claim that Wal-Mart
discriminates against females who ap-
ply for managerial positions is baseless,
noting all of his bosses were female. -
Hoch said Welt "doesn't yet un-
derstand the political complexities
of the issue" and he has "meticulous
documentation" for the anti-Wal-Mart
allegations made during his portion of

By CASSIDY MILLS
Alligator Contributing Writer
A no-vote regarding student organizations' special-
events budgets last week means the Student Senate
will again discuss the issue at a meeting Tuesday.
An amendment to the 2006-07 special-events bud-
get. will determine how student
Student associations can spend money.
Government The amendment sparked
debate because it prohibited any
student group from using more than 50 percent of its
approved budget to fund speakers and performers.
_"They weren't considering all of the costs," Sen.
Lauren Mierley said. "You have to consider the cost
of insurance, technicians, security and even flying .the
instruments into town."
Amendment author Sen. Jesse Kirsch said he
wanted to make sure that the money student organiza-
tions are given is benefiting all students, not just the
organizations' members. He added that fewer students
benefit from performances if advertising is neglected.

Politicians, residents sleep out for area homeless
Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff
Bo Diddley provides free entertainment for the participants sleeping on the ground
downtown for National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.
By JESSICA RIFFEL
A local electrician rummaged through sever-'
al dumpsters looking for clothes and bedding.
While searching, Zot Lynn Szurgot found
a discarded Scooby-Doo backpack, which
he wore with his mismatched clothes at the
Homeless Night Out in the Downtown Plaza
"Knowing that I couldn't replicate the expe-
rience ... I decided to use only the materials that
are available to the homeless," Szurgot said.
Alachua County Commissioner Rodney
Long and the Alachua County Coalition for the
Homeless and Hungry organized the sleep-
out, which allowed residents to experience
being homeless for one night.
About 200 locals, homeless and not,
joined on the grassy lawn of the Downtown
Community Plaza to listen to speakers and
bands, including musician Bo Diddley.
Several officials unrolled their sleeping bags
and joined the homeless sleep-out on the plaza.
Long, City Commissioner Jack Donovan, coun-
ty Tax Collector Von Fraser and state Rep. Ed
Jennings Jr. forfeited a comfortable night's rest
to sleep outside.
Joining the local politicians, musicians and
advocacy groups was a group of the more than
900 homeless in Gainesville.
One of them was Tom Foster, a man who
has been without a home since 1971. He has
had temporary construction jobs but none that
lasted longer thhi six months.
Foster said he didn't believe one night on
the plaza gave locals the true homeless experi-
ence, especially since people aren't normally
allowed to sleep in public places like the plaza.
"You can't sleep in the park," he said. "You
can't, sleep in the streets, so where do you
sleep? In the woods where there are mosqui-
toes. It's miserable."
Long, the master of ceremonies at the
Wednesday sleepover,. addressed the crowd
between other speakers and musical acts.
"You are one medical catastrophe away
from being homeless," he said. "Anybody can
be homeless, and knowing this, you should be
compassionate and help those who.are home-
less get back on their feet."
He also introduced Sister Hazel, the local
advocate for awareness of homelessness after
whom a popular band was named. The small
woman spoke in a strong voice, urging people
to help out of love.
"I step out ... because God loves the poor,
and anyone could be poor," she said. "I'm talk-
ing-about love without discrimination."
Diddley, the closing act, performed shortly
after 11 p.m. with local musicians. Gainesville
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan's husband, Tony
Malone, joined the musician on guitar.
Afterward, attendees settled down in their
sleeping bags, blankets and the occasional tent.
Local .designer Mark Venzke was one of
about 120 people who stayed through the night.
"It was not terribly restful, but that is in-
structive," he said. "By experiencing this, those
of us who have concern for the homeless have
new motivation to help them."

Pass the pork
Actions unethical before
and after pig roast
Pork-barrel politics haven't been this literal since the
term was invented on Southern plantations. Except
this time it was UF students picking up the tab for a cer-
tain student senator's select group of political benefactors.
Here are the facts as the Editorial Board understands them:
The Spanish American Law Students Association had a
pig roast. It was a tailgate event before the UF-Vanderbilt
The party was held at student Sen. Jared Hernandez's
house, which happens to be very close to the law school.
The organization also chose to ask for student money as
reimbursement for the pig and a few other expenses $375
Hardly an earth-shattering amount. But since Hernandez
held the party at his house, he violated a student body statute
that prohibits the allocation of student money to events held
at private residences.
The concept behind this rule is simple: Student events
must be open to everyone. Because this event was held on
private property, Hernandez could have turned away any
student at any time.
Hernandez doesn't say he didn't know'the statutes. If you
look closely, he seems to say he knew it was wrong, but he
was kind of hoping Student Government officials would let
the party slide because it was tradition.
He's a student training to be a lawyer. Unbelievable.
To Hernandez's credit, he admitted wrongdoing and prom-
ised to pay back any student funds he received for the event.
But what stopped him, and for that matter any member
of SALSA, from being up front with their plans? And what
stopped SG officials from exercising some forethought?
SALSA didn't list the location of the party on the forms its
officers filed requesting student money.
Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi approved the re-
quest anyway, and then reported Hernandez after the event
Even though Hernandez apparently announced the party
at Senate weeks before.
Both sides look deliberate. Hernandez looks like he was
holding the truth loosely, trying to have his cake and eat it,
too. Cosimi looks like she was watching this unfold the whole
time, waiting until Hernandez crossed the line to do her job.
But why would anyone want to see Hernandez humili-
Alas, there was controversy here long before the grill was
fired: Both Cosimi and Hernandez have been the subject of
rumor after rumor concerning possible runs for student body
So, one passed the pork to get in some campaigning
targeted at his would-be supporters; the other made a politi-
cally strategic pounce.
And people wonder why we criticize campus politicians
However, this debacle exposes a far more basic problem
for SG: Officials seem to suspend regulations on occasion, as
if the rules are meant to be broken.
If Hernandez decided to test the system, he did so know-
ing that others had tested it before without a problem.
We recently talked about all the election shenanigans
pulled by SG higher-ups to maintain a party's agenda. This
is hardly different.

Poor people shouldn't expect charity
ossessing wealth does not make one an oppres-
sor of the poor. Neither does it obligate one to
make any effort to assist the poor.
Part of freedom is being able to do what you think is
best with your money. As long as the people of France
are not hiring thugs to run .through their neighbor-
hoods, beating anyone who is looking for a job, they
have done nothing wrong.
Being born into a life with fewer advantages than
others does not give you the right to try- to drag them
down to your level it should only give you incentive
to bring yourself up.
It is an obvious fact of existence that life is not fair;
anyone can see that by simply looking around. The poor
in France have simply been tricked into thinking they
are entitled to an easy life, and are expressing resent-
ment at it being withheld from them.
There are many people in our own country who feel
the same way.
The myth of the American dream that brought many
immigrants to the United StAtes looking for an escape
from whatever plight they experienced back home lived.
in the hearts of those who stepped off boats with little
more than the things they carried.
They worked hard, and many of them achieved just that.
Many immigrants today, however, seem to lack the
essential component of making that dream happen
- working for it. .
They neglect that fruit hangs from.trees one must
scale here, too, and lament that they're, no closer to
making their lives better than if they'd stayed sitting
beneath its shade.
However, believing in that dream does not make
Chris New their actions right; it only shows
Speaking Out that they share the same ignorant
sentiments. If instead of waiting foi
an easy life to be handed to them
these "disadvantaged" would simply work to improve
themselves and their lifestyles, they would raise them-
selves out of the economic gutter a lot faster.
To say that, "[a]t the bottom, a riot is the language
of the unheard" is a simple excuse and a fallacy. A riot
is the act of angry people destroying that which is not
theirs because they are jealous of the people who own
it and are too lazy to earn it for themselves. Not having
something does not give you the right to destroy it.
To quote Ayn Rand, "I support my life, neither by
robbery or alms, but by my own effort, so I do not seek
to derive my happiness from the injury or favor of oth
ers, but to earn it by my own achievement."
The great tragedy of the vast majority of the poor in
France, and in America for that matter, is that they have
given up on the idea 'of their own achievement, and
have even gone so far as to ridicule those who aspire for
more than to be poor.
Usually, opportunity isn't luckily stumbled upon but
made. There is nothing easier about getting a chance at
something than doing the thing itself.
These poor want others to do for them rather thar
achieving something for themselves.
The rioters in France have chosen to riot because
they see it as an easy path for them. to steal from another
and destroy what they will not earn for: themselves. No

Letters to the Editor
Poor are so because of system, not self
I was with Christina O'Neill up to this
point: "The poor will stay poor of their own
I share her admiration for Ayn Rand's
staunch belief in individual responsibility and
reward for intellectual effort. No one has the
moral or legal right to steal from others a life
that they can't provide for themselves.
But this goes both ways. In the real world,
many "richer men," who appear on the surface
to have earned their way to the top, became
successful in part by paying their workforces
a mere fraction of what their time and energy
are really worth.
Some people stay poor of their own accord.
Others stay poor, despite years of backbreak-
ing effort, because of discrimination, slave la-
bor, immoral business practices, government
oppression and a legion of other injustices
outside the scope of their control: As such, we
can hardly turn around in moments of social
upheaval and place all the blame for poverty
on those who find themselves trapped in it.
I believe O'Neill's statements were directed
at those who foolishly resort to violence in
times of desperation. Of course I am appalled
by what has happened this week in France,
and I hold those individuals completely
responsible for their choices. But their poor
choices do not justify O'Neill's blatant over-
generalizations about something as complex
as real-world poverty. Keep in mind that
Rand's characters were not real, multifaceted
human beings, but rather stylized characters,
designed to fill specific roles in a philosophical
construct to present her argument as vividly
and unambiguously as possible.
The situation in France is vivid, but it is
certainly not unambiguous, and should not be
treated as such.
Social problems inFrance long ignored
In the land of libertyd, egalit6 and frater-
nit6," an inferno has erupted.
The explosive spark came from a smolder-
ing social inequity that has existed for de-
cades. The current crisis brings to the forefront
what's been ignored for so long. The black and
Muslim populations in France have been liv-
ing for decades in "quiet desperation."
The miserable scarcity of opportunities has
-produced recalcitrant youth frustrated by the
lack of a responsible government leadership.
The crisis also highlights the other underly-
ing factors fueling this upheaval: unemploy-
ment; discrimination, religious intolerance
and lack of viable opportunities. Some have
said this crisis is analogous to the 'social ail-
ments we had in the United States in the '60s.
Similar conditions existed in the U.S. black
population. However, the American black
population endured these conditions for a
much longer period.
The civil disobedience in France is history
repeating itself. The black and Muslim popu-
lations lack leadership to galvanize them in
nonviolent protest. Indians suffered for many
years under British rule, until a leader like
Gandhi emerged. American blacks suffered
greatly under a system that enslaved them for
centuries until Martin Luther King Jr. stepped
onto the scene. South Africa's nadir in apart-
heid lasted until Nelson Mandela came to the
forefront and faced the enemy.
Is there a need for another French -revo-
lution? Structures of social, political and
economic organizations in the French system
must be shaken up. and restructured to ac-
commodate all people. The time is ripe for a
change. They may quell the rioters, but they
can't ignore that the nation is sick and in need
Palestinians want basic coexistence
Our organization could respond to
Andrew Bare's editorial "Israeli's tragic
story exposes real hero" by pointing out that
more than 700 Palestinian children have been
killed by the Israeli army since 2000, which is
more than seven times the number of Israeli
children killed by Palestinians in that same
-However, contrary to the "fundamental-
ist" and "terrorist" stereotypes offered by
countless editorials in your newspaper, the
Palestinian struggle is not bent on asserting
the superiority of Palestinian life over Jewish
life. Instead, the Palestinian people represent
the accusation by all humanity against the in-
humanity of Zionism, the ideological founda-
tion of the Israeli state.
According. to Zionism, Jews are "chosen
people" with unique privileges, including
absolute "birthright" to the land of greater
Palestine, regardless of the historical coexis-
tence of Christians, Jews, and Muslims living
there for centuries. Since Zionism requires
that Israel have a Jewish majority population,
non-Jewish Palestinians have been displaced,
harassed, occupied by the millions and
killed by the thousands. Furthermore, all of
these horrific atrocities have been deemed
legitimate "security measures" by Israel, since
Zionism privileges Jewish rights over univer-
sal human rights. .
The Palestinian people's plight and strug-
gle against Zionism represents the cry for basic
coexistence and equality of all people regard-
less of class, culture, ethnicity, gender, race,
religion or sexuality. It is high time that your
newspaper offered UF students the chance to
understand that the enemy of the Palestinian
people is the Zionist structure of Israel, and
not the Jewish people themselves.

French Muslim youth should assimilate

deep-rooted discrimination, joblessness and

Arguably, the French have ignored a
growing problem. But why is it the respon-

One could argue that France's anti-capi-

stifling free markets and economic cohesive-
ness and creating warring pressure groups

All that is offered as a solution is France's
"recognition," "understanding" and "stop-

gest, for example, investing in better schools
for underprivileged youths. All the youths
must do is cease rioting, and, as columnist
Amy Eisinger hints, form some kind of po-
litical party. By this logic, a mugger is merely
expressing anger and will stop threatening
his victim's life when they "invest" in his

* A WEEK AFTER GIVING UP
42 POINTS, UF'S DEFENSE
FALLS APART AGAIN.
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
COLUMBIA, S.C..- With a
14-10 victory against Georgia on
Oct. 29, UF shored up its identity
as a defense-first team.
But after giving up 42 points
to Vanderbilt last week and 30
points to South Carolina on
Saturday, the Gators' strength
has become another weakness.
South' Carolina had only 246
yards of offense, but the woes
rested in big plays, penalties and
Early in the second quarter,
quarterback Blake Mitchell hit
Sidney Rice for a 19-yard pass
to the Gators' 8-yard line. That
helped lead to Daccus Turman's
1-yard run that made it 14-3.
Later in the quarter, Mike
Davis' 24-yard run put the ball
at the Gators' 11. Four plays
later, Turman's 3-yard run made
But the biggest play came
in the third quarter, one series
after UF cut it to 20-19 on Billy
Latsko's 11-yard touchdown
catch. The Gamecocks had a first
down on their 35 when Mitchell
dumped a short pass to Rice.
Rice broke free of cornerback Dee
Webb. Safety Kyle Jackson "just
flat-out missed," Rice said.
Rice took it for 64 yards before
safety Reggie Nelson chased him
down and tackled him at the 1-
yard line. South Carolina scored
on the ensuing play to go up 27-
19, taking back the momentum.
"They were defending. I guess
they didn't want to man up on
Sidney," Spurrier said. "So we
tried to run at that."
Added Mitchell: "I don't think
they wanted anyone to be one-
on-one with Sidney."
Webb received lots of criticism
after the game for racking up a
number of penalties, but defen-
sive end Jarvis Moss wouldn't
only blame them for giving up 64
yards on one play.
"I never lost faith, but it
kind of took the heart out
of a lot of guys."
"[Rice's catch] swung the mo-
mentum," Moss said. "Kyle and
Dee Webb make plays also, so
you can't really put anything on
those guys; they tried, and it just
didn't go their way."
However, Moss admitted that
the Gators couldn't really get
"back the momentum after that
"Down the stretch, we had to
make plays; we really wanted to
hold them to no scores in the sec-
ond half," Moss said. "It didn't
happen for us."
"I never lost faith, but it kind
of took the heart out of a lot of
guys," defensive end Jeremy
Mincey said. "They fed off that."

Brandon Siler said.
A disappointing feeling, quar-

Defensive end Jeremy Mincey
nearly broke into tears.
"We worked so hard just to
get to this point," defensive tackle
Marcus Thomas said. "The off-sea-
son was crazy, and we all made a lot
of sacrifices to get to this point, and
we didn't come out on top. That's
what hurts the most."
Spring mornings laced with
6 a.m. wind sprints. No Gators

"It's a program that, in my

Are three losses and a con-
ference funeral at the hands of
Spurrier worth it all?
In the postgame press confer-
ence, UF coach Urban Meyer
declined-to make an opening state-
ment for the first time all season.
"It's a program that, in my
mind, is young," Meyer said. "It's

Thomas said. "I had everything

one of the more outspoken players,
battled to convert thoughts into co-

"We thought we were going to

Officers detain campus preacher after complaints that he was disturbing classes
PREACHER, from page 1
Standing on a planter on the plaza, Miller
read his daughter's questionnaire to passing
students and asked for their responses. He
told them homosexuality was immoral.
"I wasn't out there name-calling people,"
he said. "It was an academic discussion."
He called out to nearby members of a histor-
ically black fraternity, proclaiming that homo-
sexuality, unlike race, was a chosen behavior.
Miller said students spat on him, cursed him
and played loud music to drown him out.
UPD officers arrived, responding to a call
that Miller was disturbing nearby classrooms,
spokesman Darren Baxley said.
UPD could not provide an incident report by
press time, but Miller recounted the incident.
Patrol officers told him he was on private
property, Miller said, and he responded that it
was public property.
"I said, 'If you're not going to arrest me,
you're stopping me from speaking. I'm going
to return to speaking,'" he recalled.
Eventually, Miller said, officer Damon
Kizzar twisted his arm, handcuffed him and
put him in the squad car.
" On After 15 minutes, officer
CampUS Philip Clary opened the car door
and asked Miller whether he
would leave. Miller told him he had a right to
be there, and Clary shut the door.
Fifteen more minutes passed, and Sgt.
Philip Fudge arrived. Fudge discussed the
incident with Miller and released him from
"I was sweating very profusely by that
time," he said of his time in the hot car.
Miller preached for another hour.
Eyewitness and music junior Joy Stanilka
said two squad cars and two police motor-
cycles were present for Miller's detention.
"There was'no kind of violent activity that
was going on, or really no just reason for them
to come and arrest him and make the big scene
they ended up making," she said. "He is en-
titled to come there and say what he wants."
Baxley said UPD will detain someone
speaking on campus only if he or she is incit-
ing a riot or disturbing a class.

Gamecocks capitalize on Gators' mental mistakes
* A 12TH MAN ON THE FIELD SEALS
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
COLUMBIA, S.C. It began with a 15-
yard penalty and ended with a disastrous ille-
gal participation call that prevented the Gators
ftlbm having one final shot at the end zone.
There's bound to be plenty of finger p6int-
ing after a 30-22 loss that kept the Gators out of
the Southeastern Conference-title picture.
But in the end, it was yet another mental
mistake that truly doomed the Gators.
With 1:00 remaining and UF needing a
touchdown and a two-point conversion to
send the game into overtime, the Gamecocks,
at fourth-and-11 from the UF 47-yard line,
were forced to punt and give Chris Leak and
the Gators one last chance.
The punt never came.
In one of many mental breakdowns that af-
ternoon, UF sent a 12th man Jeremy Mincey
- on the field after switching punt forma-
tions. The penalty awarded South Carolina a
first down, and the Gamecocks simply ran out
the clock for the victory.
"That stuck the dagger in my heart,"
Mincey said. "I still had hope. When I ran on
the field and looked around, I said, 'All right
we still have time:'But it happened."
Much like in UF's other road losses this
year, the penalties seemed to never end.
UF racked up a total of 11 penalties for 86
yards, while the Gamecocks had just three
penalties for 20 yards.
"I'm very questionable about a lot of those
peiialties, I wished they would have just let
the guys play ball," defensive tackle Marcus
Thomas said. "But they happened."
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier didn't
buy into the bad call theory.
"The referees, they've done an excellent
job the last five games," Spurrier said. "These
Florida boys are used to me coming in and
bitching a little bit about some calls. They
haven't heard me complain all year about
On the game's first play, kicker Jonathan
Phillips sent the ball out of bounds at the
South Carolina 10-yard line. So the Gamecocks
received the ball on the 35-yard line, and
would score within three minutes.
"All I can say is everybody at least
played hard. But there were a lot
of mental mistakes that [doomed
us]. That doesn't need to be hap-
UF defensive tackle
While the Gators would fight back all after-
noon, the mental mistakes was the afternoon's
theme. And cornerback Dee Webb was the
poster boy for UF's inefficiency.
The Gators were already missing starting
cornerback Vernell Brown, who suffered a bro-
ken leg in the Vanderbilt game. It was Webb's
time to shine, and he failed miserably.
Early in the fourth quarter with South
Carolina leading 27-19, Webb was called
for pass interference. The penalty sent the
Gamecocks from UF's 42-yard line to the 27-
South Carolina would score on a field goal,
giving them the cushion necessary to secure
the victory. But it wasn't Webb's only key
mistake of the game. On the first drive of the
second quarter and the Gamecocks leading
7-3, Webb was called for a personal foul that
moved South Carolina from UF's 42-yard line
to the 27-yard line. The P.A. announcer would
quickly get used to calling Webb's name, be-

cause later on that drive he was called for pass
interference on a second-and-goal play from
the 2-yard line. The resulting first down gave
South Carolina an easy touchdown.
"I noticed an inordinate amount of penal-
ties," coach Urban Meyer said. "That's what
held us back."
Even witf all the gaffes, UF still had several
chances to win the game. That's what makes
it even more difficult for the Gators, because
they realize what could have been had they
played a more efficient game.
"All I can say is everybody at least played
hard," Thomas said. "But there were a lot
of mental mistakes that [doomed us]. That
doesn't need to be happening."

"It's one thing to come in and win the

said. "But when you do it over 15 consecutive

matched the Tennessee men's track team

"I think at some point, you have to step
back and say, 'SEC championships don't come
