City Commission approves towing rate hike
By JESSICA RIFFEL
The Gainesville City Commission ap-
proved an $8 hike in towing rates Monday
The 4-3 vote in favor of the increase brings
the fee to $84, effective Jan. 1.
Commissioner Chuck Chestnut expressed
hesitation about the increase at the Nov.14 com-
mission meeting but voted in favor Monday.
"I think it was justified in terms of cost,"
Chestnut said. "In terms of diesel fuel... and
the economics of insurance."
He also said the commission was able to set
a 24-hour period before the towing company
can charge for storage costs.
A towing-rate increase was proposed last
year, but the commission did not approve it
because members did not believe they were
provided with enough information.
The commission rejected a motion to set
an annual increase or decrease in towing fees.
The vote was 2-5, with Commissioners Ed
Braddy and Jack Donovan in favor.
Chestnut said he was against the annual
adjustment because the commission would
"The law says we can't
lose its control of the local towing industry.
do anything against the
towing industry," he said.
"We can just set fees, and
we use fees as a way to di-
rect behavior. It's our only
Ultimate Towing re-
Hanrahan quested the rate hike at the
end of September, accord-
ing to company attorney Katherine Smaha.
Ultimate Towing wanted $90, but the issue
was deferred to the Public Safety Committee
at the Nov. 14 commission meeting.
Smaha said Ultimate is "quite happy with
the commission's decision."
In other news, the commission opted not to
rule out increasing alcohol regulations in 2006.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan does not want to
eliminate the possibility of regulating drink
specials, but the commission voted to defer
the issue to the Public Safety Committee.

Sex speaker dazzles
Writer, speaker and sex educator Jay Friedman dangles a female condom during a speech in the
Reitz Union Auditorium on Monday night.
By OLIVIA ORMOS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Shopping for a condom should
be like shopping for a car: You need
to find the make, model and features
that feel right to you.
These are the words of sex educa-
tor Jay Friedman, who spoke to about
150 people Monday night in the Reitz
For the past 14 years, Friedman
has toured the country speaking pri-
marily to college students about sex
and promoting healthy relationships.
During a lecture at MIT, Friedman
said he had to explain sex to the male-
dominated student body in terms of
graphs and mathematics. He came up
with the analogy that a man's experi-
ence is like a microwave oven and a
woman's is more like a crockpot.
"Women can have multiple or-
gasms, so Freud was all wrong with
penis envy," he said. "Men reach
their sexual peak at ages 18 or 19 and
women at age 30 or 40."
For some women it takes more
time to feel comfortable with their
bodies, along with hopes and desires
with a partner, he said.
It is normal for both men and
women to masturbate, Friedman said,
and normal if they don't.
"Masturbation is a perfect way to
practice using condoms. It is dull lov-
ers, not dull condoms, that make for
dull sex," he said.
The secret to making condoms feel
better, he said, is to simply flip the
condom over and put water-based
lubricant in the tip of the condom.
Friedman told about the time in
high school when he was forced to
watch a movie that flashed pictures of
genitals covered with diseases.
"My belief is that sex is good. It's
what we learn about sex that is not so
good," he said. "The videos are a scare
tactic to never make us want to do it
the rest of our lives but instead leave
us ignorant and confused."

campus have, and giving students a voice in
the Office of Admissions and the university.
The discussion starts at 7 p.m. in the Reitz
Union Rion Ballroom.
UF does not recruit for Asian American
students in the way it does for Hispanic and
Latino or black students, and a director could
help to change this, Chiu said.
She added that the forum is to inform those
in attendance of what is happening with the
director and "how all students can benefit"
from having one.
When people attend the fo-
Student rum, they "will show administra-
Life tion, faculty and other students

Scooters don't faze UPD
* OFFICERS PREFER STUDENTS
TO WEAR HELMETS ON THE ROAD.
By KARI M. TARR
Alligator Contributing Writer
Scooters are treated as motorcycles by
law when traveling at 30 mph or more,
but local police usually disregard this fact
because it would require an additional
motor vehicle license, insurance and eye
"Could we enforce them? Absolutely.
Do we? Not really," said Gainesville Police
Department Sgt. Anthony Ferrara.
Ferrara compared scooter law enforce-
ment to jaywalking on a football gameday.
"There is a leniency given to students
who aren't making waves," he said.
Amateur riders without proper protec-
tion, including a helmet, are a concern for
officials, even though all scooter riders are
not required to wear helmets.
"Any time you are going faster than
walking pace on something not biologically
part of you, you should have a helmet on,"
Under Florida law, motorcyclists over
the age of 21 with proper license and
$10,000 worth of personal injury insurance
are exempt from helmet laws.
A state law requiring all motorcyclists
to wear a helmet was revoked in 2000, and
fatalities have dramatically increased since
then. According to the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration, fatalities in
Florida were 71 percent greater in the two
years following the repeal than the two
years before it.
"Anytime you are going faster
than walking pace on something
not biologically part of you, you
should have a helmet on."

"Students don't like to wear helmets
because it doesn't look cool," said UPD of-
ficer David Miles. "It's a really dangerous
University students hoping to return
to Gainesvilleafter the holiday break with
new scooters should not overlook the hel-
mets at the dealership.
"As a motorcycle rider, I don't see any
significant difference between the two
when you're in the city," said UF graduate
student Paul Wiseman.
Police: Buckle up or pay
By CHRISTOPHER HIATT
Alligator Contributing Writer
Driving without a seatbelt in
Gainesville could cost you more than $75
as local officials enforce a Click it or Ticket
campaign this month.
University Police is cracking down
on drivers and passengers not wear-
ing seatbelts as part of a countywide
Driving without a seatbelt is against
Florida state law, but it is not a primary of-
fense, meaning police cannot pull over an
adult for not wearing a seatbelt. As a sec-
ondary violation, however, not buckling
up will tack an extra $77.50 to a ticket for
a primary offense like speeding, said UPD
officer John Savona.
Savona said students should be careful.
"The primary stop is not the seatbelt,
but if you run a stop sign or something,
then they can get you," he said.
One exception to the secondary offense
rule is if an individual under the age of 18
is not wearing a seatbelt. Even if the person
is in the back seat, the violation becomes a
primary offense, giving an officer the right
to pull the vehicle over and issue a citation
to the driver.
The fine for a non-moving offense,
such as not wearing a seatbelt, has gone
up from $74.50 to $77.50 in the past year,
Savona said. The fine for a moving offense,
such as running a stop sign, rose from
$118.50 to $121.50.
A citation of this kind will not result in
points on a driver's license, but Savona
said to expect more fine increases.

Man without a face
Director livens up classes
By DAVID COHEN
Microeconomics professor Mark
Rush carefully paced the floor, try-
ing not to step on a crack.
When asked why, his friend
butted in: "He breaks my back."
This is a familiar scene for
Rush and his accomplice, Anthony
Bouton, better known to many as
You've probably heard the two
insult each other, but chances are
you've never seen them face-to-face.
Bouton is in charge of large
Warrington College of Business lec-
tures behind Bryan Hall Room 130.
He takes pride in concealing his
identity behind the camera, a posi-
tion he's held since 1990.
He puts the entry-level business
courses, Rush's microeconomics
and David Denslow's macroeco-
nomics, on the electronic platform
for thousands of students to view.
While students remain in the
dark about who is behind the lens,
Bouton said he enjoys taunting the
professors he never understood.
"I've got to keep it that way," he
said. "1 think it makes it more fun
for students. Everyone has a dif-
ferent picture of what the Director
Rush said students can only
concentrate for about 30 minutes at
a time, and Bouton helps to break up
the economic monotony.
So the two take jabs at each other,
even when the camera isn't rolling,
on things such as Rush's oft-worn
plaid shirts, which Bouton said rep-
resent lines on a globe.
"Hopefully, most people like it,"
Bouton said. "They can always fast-
forward through the stuff. You want
to walk that fine line."
Denslow said there are few times
when the same level of thought
is present during an hour-long
event, noting the drinking scene in
Shakespeare's play "Macbeth."
Bouton said Denslow's mom and
Shakespeare have a lot in common.
"They both produce great trag-
edies," he said.
Bouton joked that his favorite
part about his job is going home
") after work with Rush, Denslow and
marketing professor Richard Lutz.
Rush responded Jby noting he
was offended that he and Lutz were
mentioned in the same breath.
"I like the fact that Gainesville
has a sewer system too, but that
doesn't mean I like to associate with
it," he said.
Bouton said he used to direct
graduate-level engineering courses,
where it was "one equation after the
other" with little student contact.
"Director equals p times o times
s," Rush said.
Denslow said his class has a
90-percent approval rating, in part
because of Bouton's contribution.
But he said the jokes are typically
recycled every semester.
Jenny Harnish, Alligator
The Director draws a mustache on Microeconomics professor Mark Rush. The two trade playful insults
and practical jokes during lecture recordings.
"That's an incentive to pass,"
Donald Jones, a tourism manage-
ment senior, said Bouton usually
wins the joke war.
"I think the Director gets the best
of them sometimes," he said.
"Enjoy your last night in
Gainesville," Rush rebutted.
Bouton said Rush generally
shoots back quicker than Denslow.
"You have.to make your joke air-
tight (with Rush)," he said.
The trio frequents local resta-
raunts such as Leonardo's and
Burrito Brothers for lunch.
Denslow said they played golf, but
it was a disaster, so they tried tennis.
"His (Bouton's) main goal is to
see how far over the backstop he can
hit it," he said. "I play at the so-called
senior league. But it starts young. You
only have to be 60 to be in it."
Just then, sirens rang from a
nearby emergency vehicle.
"The bad joke police are here,"
City 'Intern' competition enters second year at SFCC
* THE WINNER OF THE CONTEST WILL INTERN
FOR GAINESVILLE MAYOR PEGEEN HANRAHAN.
By ALEXIS LLOYD
Although Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan is no
Donald Trump, she will decide the fate of who receives a paid
internship and a scholarship in the SFCC competition The
Intern 2, a spin-off of the TV show "The Apprentice."
The theme of this year's competition is "Building kids' fu-
tures, one task at a time," and it begins January 2006.
Eight contestants will compete in seven tasks, with a
children's theme focused on benefiting different aspects of
Gainesville's children community.
"It is really hush-hush on the tasks so no one can get the up-
per leg on the other competition," said SFCC student Krystal
Wilson, project coordinator. "They are a secret, but what I
can say is that the Children's Home Society, March of Dimes,
United Way and various charities and organizations are in-
Last year, only nine students applied for the eight open
spots, but the college is hoping to have more students partici-
pate this year.
"The ideal type of person for 'The Intern' is someone who
has ideas, who can think outside the box," said Wilson, who
placed second to Daniel Jones in last year's The Intern.
"You think everything is going perfect, but it is that one idea
that puts you over the top," she said. "The person needs to be a
leader, but able to follow others."
The deadline to enter is Dec. 6. The Intern hopefuls must
submit an application as to why they would like to participate
in the competition, one recommendation letter and a 250-word
autobiography. Each student must be registered for the Spring
2006 semester and hold at least a 2.0 GPA.
"A new addition to the competition will be online voting,"
said Alan Rezaei, SFCC's student body president. "This is to
get the community more in-
Santa Fe volved with the project."
Community College Rezaei is working with
Student Government to help
raise campus awareness about the event.
Local community members will be able to go to
sfccintemproject.com and vote for the contestant they believe
should move on to the next week's task.
However, voting will not have any direct effect on the
Rezaei said the mayor used the phrase "Stay in school"
during last year's competition instead of Trump's signature

Holiday cards go from campus to children in hospitals
By ADRIANNA C. RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
With a little construction paper, a few stick-
ers and some cutout snowflakes, UF students
can send season's greetings to young cancer
patients spending their holidays in hospitals.
For its fifth annual Hearts for the Holidays
campaign, Gainesville's chapter of the stu-
dent-run Friends for Life of America organiza-
tion is working to have 7,000 cards made and
sent to children in hospitals nationwide.
The club will have tables set up with art
supplies from 9:35 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. weekdays
through Dec. 5 on the Reitz Union Colonnade.
Anyone can stop by and make holiday cards.
A card-making table will also be on Turlington
Plaza during the same times every weekday
except Wednesday. A floating table will be at
the Broward Dining Hall and the Southwest
Recreation Center from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Wednesday, as well as in the Warrington
College of Business courtyard Monday.
"It's a really good opportunity for UF stu-
dents to do something for the community,"
said Mary McNichol, a psychology junior.
"You can help kids feel better about being in
She participated in the campaign last year
and said she hopes her cards "come-out pret-
ty" for the children who receive them.
The club's hospital correspondents coor-
dinate with each hospital to make sure all
the children in that hospital receive a card,

kids to be in the hospital," Crosmer said.

People can stop by as often as they want, to
make as many holiday cards as possible. No
artistic talent is required.
"Everybody gets hooked," Crosmer said.

time reach out to children."
Vikram Purohit, 21, a molecular biology
senior, has made holiday cards for the cam-

as normal a life as possible, and this is just an-
other way to do that," Purohit said.

Committee will discuss alcohol
CITY, from page 1
The committee will need to submit a
recommendation for the commission's
Dec. 12 meeting in order for the city to
vote to regulate drink specials and the
tracking of kegs in 2006.
UF Student Body President Joe
Goldberg told the commission that he's
against keg registration.
"Somebody will purchase a keg and
take it to a party, and somebody will
come to that party and steal it," he said.
He said even though the student no
longer has control of who drinks from
the keg, the student would still be re-
sponsible because it is registered under
his or her name.
Hanrahan countered that some re-
sponsibility is necessary.
"We want people tobe worried about
someone stealing their kegs or who's
drinking out of their kegs," she said.
Robert Zeller, owner of Gator City,
Grog House and Copper Monkey, said
the laws might hurt small businesses.
Zeller and other alcohol distributors
told the commission that more discus-
sions need to be held and that local
businesses should be included.
Gainesville City owner of Gator
Commission Beverage, lo-
cated at 1126 W
University Ave., said Gainesville citi-
zens must have more input on issues
that could greatly affect them.
"I don't think there's any awareness
of this issue at all in the general public,"
he said. "This small, hidden piece of
legislature could greatly affect their ex-
posure to civil and criminal damage."
Friedman: 'Blue balls' a myth
SEX, from page 1
Friedman said the reasons why even
nice guys find themselves putting pres-
sure on their partners to have sex is be-
cause of locker-room talk, homophobia
and the myth of "blue balls."
"If the 'blue-ball' myth were true,
you would hear explosions all over
campus," Friedman said. "No one
should feel compelled to finish some-
one off; this is where you need to
communicate and negotiate the sexual
behavior you are ready for."
Friedman said that during his travel
across the United States, he found more
open-minded students onthe East coast,
and more dose-minded students as he
moved inland toward states like North
and South Dakota and Montana.
Many of his visits have resulted in
censorship, and he said people voice
complaints such as "he is stimulating
students into a state of erotic frenzy."
UF junior Lauren Case said she en-
joyed Friedman because "it's rare you
find someone willing to ... speak about
this very taboo subject."
Friedman concluded with a "gift" to
the audience of teaching them how to in-
crease their sexual strength and stamina
with kegel exercises, squeezes of the
muscles of the pelvic floor. The exercise
helps enhance one's sex life, he said.
"You don't want to do too many too
fast, but you want to do sets of these
things every day," Friedman said.
Dean of Students Office appointed Asian graduate assistant instead of director
DIRECTOR, from page 1
tion was created for a director of multicultural and diversity
A graduate assistant position was also created for Asian
Pacific American Affairs, but not the director position that
some students had hoped for.
Kappa Phi Lambda and Delta Phi Omega sororities are
hosting tonight's event with support from Asian American
Heritage Kaleidoscope Month.
Coordinator for the event Thao Tran said it would not be a
protest or rally, but an educational forum.
Student She said the event will benefit the whole
Lifo student body.
Chiu said the forum will allow students to
write down questions that a moderator will pose. -
Panelists will include South Asian American Student Union
President Preeti Sharma, past AASU President Linh Nguyen,
professors Amy Ongiri and Malini Schueller and Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual and Transgender Affairs Director Tamara Cohen, said
Kaleidoscope Month Event Coordinator Leo Esclamado.
The Dean of Students Office has appointed directors for
black students, Hispanic students and students with disabili-
ties as well.
The two professors were involved in a panel last year that
focused on ethnic studies, Esclamado said.
He emphasized that the panel's purpose is not to blame
the Dean of Students Office because it does not have a director
for Asian Ajmerican Students.

Fight against military
With nothing of controversial value happening on cam-
pus recently, the Editorial Board has decided to rely
on a natural foe for editorial material.
We'd like you to travel back to last Monday, when the
National Guard came to the Plaza of the Americas to recruit
students by letting them touch and aim powerful weapons.
By adding video games and free food to the deal, the men in
uniform had no problem garnering positive attention. College
boys love war and games, except perhaps when it's real.
But the appearance of guns on campus, whether the weap-
ons were in working condition or not, made us question the
military's recruitment tactics. The necessity of using guns to at-
tract possible soldiers is an interesting trend in military recruit-
ment. It emphasizes the excitement of violence, rather than the
honor of fighting for your country.
But while we're worried about how the military recruits,
others are focused on the message behind the organization.
The Forum for Academic and Institutional Rights is fight-
ing against the Solomon Amendment, which would allow the
federal government to withdraw funding if universities don't
permit military recruiters on campus. Some schools would like
to bar the military because its "don't ask, don't tell" policy on
gays conflicts with efforts to battle discrimination.
The forum argues that the law, enacted after Sept. 11, 2001,
violates the First Amendment. The Supreme Court will hear the
case Dec. 6.
So what's the Editorial Board's conclusion? Our nation is
obsessed with homosexuality. And in this case, the argument
doesn't apply to the situation.
Our nation is at war, and our military is pathetically smaller
than our ambitions. We're knee-deep in Iraq without the man-
power to construct a democracy out of anarchy. Students are of
the right age, mind and situation for recruitment. The military,
and our country's international efforts, cannot survive without
On the other hand, our military discriminates against the
openly gay. And that's just bigoted.
But we don't believe universities are seen as discriminatory
because they allow the military on campus. Joining the Army is
a good option for many, and impeding students from learning
about this opportunity isn't a very educated decision.
There's a big difference between an group that recruits stu-
dents for the purpose of working against gays, and an organiza-
tion that has a discriminatory policy buried within its ranks.
Furthermore, tying obligations to federal funding is nothing
new. Universities must follow a million specifications to get
government grants; this requirement is just another one in the
pile. The forum is following up on it because winning the case
will help put pressure on the military to change its policy.
We would like to see the policy changed, partly because we
don't think it has anything to do with fighting. Soldiers of every
race, sex and creed are needed, and discrimination goes against
the military's goals.
However, this case is stretched thin. Whatever the outcome,
the "don't ask, don't tell" policy will not change. Only time and
a shifting public opinion can do that. In this political climate, the
military unfortunately will lose more recruits than it gains if it
changes the policy now.
The military shouldn't speak against gays or actively encour-
age discrimination on campus. Beyond that, students can make
their own decisions about the worthiness of the organization.
We can't win the battle against discrimination from such an
Instead, we should focus on a more direct and relevant is-

Scientific theories more than guesses
t is clear that there are significant public misconceptions
about the debate on "intelligent design." Part of this am-
biguity stems from a general misunderstanding of science
- the roots of which are fodder for an entire series of opinion
columns and part of it is caused by the parties involved in
There are two facets to this debate: One is political, and
the other is academic. Neither concerns the validity or cor-
rectness of "intelligent design"; that is, of whether it is a
plausible idea or not. The political controversy centers on
the legality of teaching an inherently religious philosophy in
public schools and whether that is constitutional. I will not
dwell on the political situation, as I am sure that everyone
has heard plenty from the media.
The other part of the debate, the academic angle, deals
with whether "intelligent design" is actually a science.
As Joseph Meert pointed out last Monday, the answer is
a resounding "no." In his Wednesday column, Thomas
Harrington correctly pointed out that a scientific theory is
testable and falsifiable. What he failed to state, however, is
that "intelligent design" does not meet these criteria. How
do you falsify the hypothesis of the interaction of a higher
being? By disproving the existence of God? That is not sci-
ence. There is a reason that advocates focus on trying to
discredit the neo-Darwinian natural selection theory rather
than on testing. "Intelligent design" is a philosophy, not a
science. Rather than explain the how, "intelligent design')
actually deals with the why. I agree with Meert that it has
an appropriate classroom setting one that is a theology or
philosophy class, not a science class.
The public should also realize what the "intelligent
design" idea actually states. The concept does not refute
evolution. A curious person needs only to refer to the Web
site of the Discovery Institute, the primary institutional pro-
ponent for "intelligent design," to realize this. Evolution is,
as defined by evolutionary biologist Douglas J. Futuyma,
"...change in the properties of populations of organisms that
Jonathan transcend the lifetime of a single indi-
Hoffman vidual." Advocates attempt to explain
Speaking Out the cause for this change and attach
purpose to it, not deny its existence.
They do not even fully reject natu-
ral selection, the driving mechanism behind neo-Darwinian
evolution. They concede that genetic mutations do occur,
causing change, but they contend that not all of these muta-
tions are random.
As a scientist, I am disturbed by the general misconcep-
tion that a scientific theory holds little credence. Last week,
one editorial author stated that "evolution is as much of a
theory as 'intelligent design,'" implying that evolution is
still only a "lowly" theory. In science, it is an accolade for an
idea to attain the level of theory, not a dishonor. A scientific
theory is based on observations that have been subjected to
and withstood numerous tests, including attempts at falsifi-
cation. Statements such as "it's just a theory" equate a theory
with a hypothesis. Relativity, the idea behind the splitting of
atoms and nuclear energy, is "just" a theory. No one, how-
ever, debates its validity because it has been upheld through
countless trials. It also does not challenge our concepts of
creation, but I digress. -
Lastly, I can only shake my head at Ashley Wills' claim
that evolution is a "philosophy issue." In the science commu-
nity, the occurrence of evolution is supported beyond debate.
We have witnessed it happen before our very eyes with the
annual formation of new viral strains. Further evidence has
come from the fossil record, in which we have discovered im-
pressive evolutionary sequences, for example, in horses and
whales. In her column, Wills refuted evolutionary biology's
status as a science. It is my hope that most people can realize
that evolutionary biology and its related fields are science.
Furthermore, I hope that people will understand fully the
position they advocate.

Letters to the Editor
Flag supporters comical, uninformed
After a nice relaxing break, it was good
to come back to campus to find the comedy
that was the Alligator Letters to the Editor
on Monday. Nothing says hilarity like two
individuals who do not attend UF and have
well-developed opinions on things they
know nothing about.
Since space is limited, I will address
the letter from Wes Hamilton, a proud
resident of Clyde, Texas, who apparently
has no connection with UF whatsoever.
Hamilton goes to great pains to inform
us, the impressionable student body, that
his seventh cousin, Robert E. Lee, did not
in fact take up arms against his country
but simply switched his allegiance when
another group of seemingly non-traitorous
individuals decided to establish a new na-
tion. No rebellion there at all!-
What puzzles me the most, however,
is Hamilton's prestigious family history.
He claims that he had grandfathers in six
states and that all of them were officers and
soldiers in the Confederate Army.
I was under the impression that most
people only had two grandfathers. I have
heard of inbreeding in the South, but I
thought this was just conjecture and rumor.
Hamilton proves that this is indeed a his-
If, as Hamilton claims, the Confederates
were fighting for the value system em-
bodied by Thomas Jefferson, why does
the United States still exist under the
Constitution? How exactly did the election
of Abraham Lincoln threaten America's
"principles, morals and rights" as codified
by the Founding Fathers?
He really doesn't answer this question
very well and instead spews the same vitri-
olic rhetoric that so many pro-Dixie people
have trotted out over the years.
The only thing that Hami
was lacking was a Zell Miller
challenging Andrew Bare to a
field of honor.
duel on the
Bare judges past by today's standards
Andrew Bare's Wednesday column
"Confederate flag is a symbol of treason"
makes the mistake of judging the people
of the 1860s by current standards. For
example, the column stated, "Lee had his
chance to serve his country or serve his
state. He chose his state." But to Lee, his
state was his country.
The federal government was much
smaller and weaker in 1860 than it is today.
Back then, Americans did not have Social
Security numbers, they did not pay federal
income taxes, and most did not carry U.S.
passports. They moved from state to state
much less than people do today, and they
had fewer relatives and friends in other
Therefore, it is not surprising that they
felt more like citizens of their states than
citizens of the United States. To many of
them, the idea that their states could not
leave the United States would be compa-
rable to the modern idea that a nation can-
not leave the United Nations.
Many Southerners opposed secession
and slavery and ending slavery was not
initially a goal of the Union but chose
to resist or were even forced to resist an
armed invasion of the South. Does that
make those people evil?
If the Confederate flag is a symbol of
treason, then the U.S. flag is also a symbol
of treason. The stars and stripes is the flag
of people who rebelled against the British
Also, many people who fly the flag
today are not trying to honor Confederate
heritage or make a political or social state-
ment. To many, the flag is just a symbol of
the South or Southern pride. And many
people just fly the flag as a kind of silly or
fun thing. I think this is especially true of
the Louisiana State University sports fans,
who wave a purple and gold LSU's
school colors version of the flag.
Confederacy honored for many reasons
I am by no means an ardent supporter
or admirer of the Confederacy, but the
* argument. presented by Andrew Bare is
patently ridiculous.. By the same reasoning
process, Old Glory is also a symbol of trea-
son. Should we be ashamed? Should we
avoid flying it when it might offend the
United Kingdom? Don't be ridiculous.
The South had reasons other than slav-
ery for revolting. This does not excuse it
but represents extenuating circumstances.
Afterward, the people who had to prose-
cute the war felt that the reasons for the re-
volt were not unreasonable as evinced by
the easy terms granted postwar. If many of
the ones who fought and died as a result
of the South's decision did not blame it
overmuch, I don't think it makes sense for
us to do that now.
The Confederacy represents many
things to many people. If we are to live in
a free society, we need to learn to tolerate
and grasp that a reverence for its better in-
tentions does not necessitate ignorance of
its flaws. Further, if we are to learn from its
mistakes, we cannot do so by eradicating it
from memory. Those offended by the flag
would be better off using it to discuss the
errors it represents than to make it disap-
pear from human experience.
Nicholas Bretagna II
More to Southern story than most know
I used to believe the things that Andrew
Bare professed in his column. I was a Yankee,
born and raised in the North Country where
I earned a master's in American history
from a university in Kansas, a state that flaunts
its "abolitionist" history. It wasn't until after I
had the degree and spent four years working
at the Kansas State Historical Society Library/
Archives that I realized there was much more
to the story than is publicly taught in schools
Secession was not unconstitutional before
the Civil War, only after was it declared so.
The original colonies had done the same thing
from England, but we glorify them as heroes.
The war was primarily over tyranny, second-
arily over slavery.
Gen. Ulysses S. Grant owned slaves; Gen.
Robert E. Lee did not. Lincoln did not free all
slaves, only slaves in southern states. There
were plenty of slaves in border states and
northern slaves that were not freed.
The Confederacy at the end of the war
allowed black units, and during the war, al-
lowed individual black soldiers and had entire
Native American regiments. I could go on, but
I will end with this quote from a Union
hero: "If I thought this war was about slavery,
I would resign my commission and take my
sword to the other side."
Guess who said that? Ulysses S. Grant.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
Gators breeze by Hornets
By DAN TREAT
It didn't seem much like a night for record
breaking Monday at the O'Connell Center.
Coming off three straight wins against
opponents from major conferences, UF met
up with Alabama State, a team from the
Southwest Athletic Conference coming into
the game with a first-year coach and a 1-4
But with an 87-60 win over the Hornets,
the No. 11 Gators jumped out to a 6-0 season-
opening record for the first time since Coach
Billy Donovan came to Gainesville in 1996 and
the first time since the 1984-85 season, Vernon
Maxwell's first in orange and blue.
That team, however, failed to make the
NCAA Tournament, a fact Donovan noted
after the game as he downplayed the accom-
"It doesn't really mean a lot to me,"
Donovan said. "Because we've had some very,
very good teams here over the last 10 years
that haven't gotten off to a start like we've got.
I'm not really that wrapped up in it."
Donovan also felt that the achievement
showed the relative lack of basketball heritage
"I think what it really shows people is the
lack of tradition that's been here in basketball
over an extended period of time," Donovan
With the game never really in doubt, the
Gators jumped out to a 10-0 lead and never
looked back. Spurred on by a 4-for-4 start
from the field by Corey Brewer, who finished
8 for 9 with 17 points, seven rebounds and five
assists, UF took a 45-32 lead into the locker
Al Horford posted his second double-
double of the season, finishing with 12 points
and 11 rebounds, but admitted it wasn't an
"We went through some slumps," Horford
said. "We've got to work on that. We've got
to be more consistent and play the whole 40
And sophomore Taurean Green continued
his steady shooting from the foul line, shoot-
ing 10 for 10 from the charity stripe while
running his streak of consecutive free throws
made up to 24.
"We went through some slumps.
We've got to work on that. We've got
to be more consistent and play the
whole 40 minutes."
UF basketball player
Green finished with 18 points.
"That. is very helpful when you have a
point guard that's a good free-throw shooter
that can get fouled," Donovan said. "And he's
a good enough creator and penetrator that he
can get in the lane and create and make some
The highlight, or perhaps lowlight, of the
game, came when Donovan was on the receiv-
ing end of an accidental smack above the right

ing for a media timeout.
"I was really hoping no one saw that,"
"I just told the ref thank God he didn't have
any rings on, so I was at the wrong place in
the wrong time ... he obviously didn't do it
"But the last thing I wanted to know, and
[the television announcers] said they showed
it about 10 times and kept replaying it, so I'm
sure it looks really good on tape."

As it turns out, he was right.

So how then is this season a suc-

It's not. Ask any of the fans (or
my colleague Louis) who predict-

championship or a BCS bowl. Ask
UF's seniors for that matter.
For them, it is just another
season in which UF didn't have a
