Brooks, whom UF President
Bernie Machen praised as "one

spoke to kick off the College of

and places children from impov-

access to education, Brooks said.
He said 80 percent of the United
States' wealth is intangible, held

"What family you were born
into matters so much more in a-
perverse way," said Brooks.

'Sex' clause removed

Fetus photos fly over campus
In the same way shocking
photos of the Holocaust and
lynchings are used to change
people's minds, an anti-abortion
group hired two planes to carry
banners of bloody, aborted fetus-
es over the UF campus Tuesday.
Mike Schrimsher, Florida re-
gional director for the Center for
Bioethical Reform, said the pho-
tos were meant to elicit an emo-
tional response and an informed
debate about abortion.
"A picture's worth a thou-
sand words, but it's still just one
picture," he said, adding that
people can get more information
on the center's Web site.

as Turlington Plaza, Schrimsher
He said shocking photos are
effective tools for social change,

to photos of civil-rights protest-
ers being attacked by dogs and
"It did elicit an emotional
response when people saw
those pictures, but it also forced
a debate in this country that re-

Americans," he said.
Schrimsher said the center
gets a lot of phone calls and e-
mails from both supporters and
opponents of its tactics.
The center hopes to bring the
"genocide awareness project" to
campus this semester, but needs
to find a student group that will
sponsor it first, he said.
Schrimsher said UF was a
target because "all university
campuses are important to us."

Bill may keep personal cell phone records private
* COMPANIES LIE TO GET
NUMBERS, OFFICIALS SAY.
By NICK PATRICK
Personal cell phone records are
on the growing list of once-pri-
vate items now available publicly
through the Internet, but a newly
introduced bill in the U.S. Senate
could change that.
Florida Sen. Bill Nelson led a
bipartisan group of senators last
week in introducing a bill that
would make this practice illegal,
said- his spokeswoman, Maria
"For Senator Nelson, this is
another problem of our diminish-
ing privacy in the Internet age,"
As of now, an individual can

calls made from a phone number

The practice has been going
on for several years because there
is no specific law that prohibits
people from falsely identifying

The monthly records sell for

People are accessing the re-

sentatives for "speech-impaired

In addition to infringing on

SFCC will lay off career counselors this summer
By DANNY SANCHEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
The 27 SFCC employees who help people
find jobs at the One-Stop Career Center will
soon have to find new jobs for themselves.
Beginning July 1, SFCC will no longer pro-
vide One-Stop with caseworkers who assist
those looking for a new career.
Although the caseworkers will no longer
work for SFCC, they could be rehired once
another organization is found to provide the
service, said SFCC spokesman Larry Keen.
The college will instead focus on bolster-
ing its educational programs, Keen said.
"We're no longer going to provide the
social services side of it," he said.
Keen said the counseling service did not fit
with the college's mission and that SFCC was
not pressured to stop offering the service.
"It was our decision. It had just become
too much of a strain," Keen said. "Overall,
the college's enrollment is over 16,000. It's
becoming a strain for the college to do what
it's not really suited to do that well."
"Overall, the college's enrollment

Alito v. Roe
Liberals fret over future
of abortion rights
As the possibility of a successful filibuster grows more
unlikely, the confirmation of Judge Samuel Alito to
the Supreme Court looks increasingly probable.
But despite the man's nearly impeccable credentials as a
legal scholar, only one question seems to be on everybody's
Will Samuel Alito and the new conservative majority on the
Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade?
Alito's refusal to follow John Roberts's lead by calling the
case "settled law" in his judiciary hearings is troubling to many
If confirmed, Alito will replace the moderate Sandra Day
O'C6nnor on the Supreme Court. O'Connor was a critical
swing vote in many of the court's most divisive cases over the
past 20 or so years. Many times, she was the crucial vote in sup-
porting Roe v. Wade.
Now, the liberal safety net is being replaced with a much
Pro-choice activists are up in arms. "[Anti-abortion ad-
vocates] have an anti-choice president and an anti-choice
Congress. Now they want an anti-choice Supreme Court," said
Nancy Keenan, president of Naral Pro-Choice America.
And President Bush isn't exactly easing their fears. On
Monday, the 33rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, Bush
told abortion opponents that they are "pursuing a noble cause,"
and that they "will prevail."
So we can understand the tension.
But abortion is one issue that we take a liberal stance on.
We think that a woman's right to choose should never be
infringed upon, especially in the first trimester.
And in Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court agreed.
In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled that states could only pro-
hibit abortion during the second trimester or later.
There was only one problem.
The Supreme Court is charged with interpreting the
Constitution as it is written.
The last time we checked, the words "trimester" and "abor-
tion" are conspicuously absent from the document.
Which means that the -Supreme Court based its decision
in Roe v. Wade on little more than its own opinions. There is
precious little explicit support for the decision anywhere in the
The court's ruling rested on a so-called implied right to pri-
vacy found in the Bill of Rights and on the due process clause of
the Fourteenth Amendment.
But the decision and its constitutional foundations seem
vague and contrived.That wasn't the way that our Constitution
was meant to be interpreted.
Roe v. Wade should have never been decided by nine people
in black robes, entirely divorced from the society at large. This is
an issue that must either be settled at the state level or by way of
a Constitutional amendment.
While we think that a woman should have a right to choose,
we can also understand how reasonable people could disagree.
In the end, this will require a great national soul-searching.
We need open dialogue between both sides to make any sense
of the arguments.
It is a complex debate, and we should expect complex posi-
We've seen the sign-waving protesters, the name-calling
demonstrators and the street-corner activists.
But in the end, this isn't an issue for extremists on either side.

State of the Union address in which he will outline
the American government's general direction for
the next year.
In the recent past, several new and troubling stories
have come to light that call into question the Bush admin-
istration's devotion to civil liberties and the principles of a
balanced federal government.
So let's talk about a canceled television show.
NBC announced Sunday that, due to declining ratings,
it was canceling the award-winning drama, "The West
Wing," at the conclusion of this season its seventh. If
that doesn't seem to be earth-shattering news of great na-
tional import, well, we all have our blind spots.
That "The West Wing" was a brilliant show for several
years has always seemed to me a self-evident truth.
But "The West Wing" is (was?) more than just a qual-
ity program. It was centered on politics, yes, but plenty
of shows have had political themes or have dealt in some
Sway with current events. "The West Wing's" underlying
left-wing philosophy was obvious and undeniable. On
rare occasions it was also quite heavy-handed.
But the show transcended its liberal ideology in large
part because of extraordinary writing, which enabled
brilliant performances from an ensemble cast. Artistic
appreciation cuts across all partisan barriers. Brilliance is
brilliance, whether the message is liberal or conservative.
It's how liberals who love the English language can
consider George Will's columns a twice-weekly treasure
chest. It's how they cherish Peggy Noonan's work or
Ronald Reagan's brilliant oration after the Challenger
But artistic excellence, though an admirable end in and
of itself, is not usually enough to grab hold of our imagina-
tions. Great writing,-great acting, great directing we un-
derstand these-things and appreciate them intellectually,
but memories aren't always formed intellectually.
The Bare Truth
will live on
In a post-Vietnam War, post-
Watergate age when government
gives us so many reasons to be
cynical, we can never believe that
there are decent politicians. We've
long since stopped demanding
elite behavior from our leaders,
and as a result they've long since
stopped even pretending to exhibit
But then we had this show, an
incredibly unrealistic drama where intelligent, idealistic,
dedicated men and women avoided being corrupted by
We had this show where serious men used serious
words to discuss serious problems.
We had this show where language was treated as a sub-
lime instrument, designed to uplift our spirits, not crush
them with the sheer, overwhelming banality of regurgi-
tated talking points.
It was a show written by Hollywood liberals who loved
and respected their country enough to expect greatness
out of even fictional politicians.
For all the eloquence, the' erudite vocabulary and the
sophisticated themes, "The West Wing" proudly dis-
played an idealism so complete as to be breathtaking.
How could these perfectly intelligent writers living in the
most cynical region of a cynical country maintain such an
abiding faith in American politics?
That irrational dream fed the creative energy of one of
the few shows that actually left its audience feeling more
energetic during the ending credits than the opening ones.
The energy and idealism inspired by "The West Wing"
will shape American culture long after its May departure.

Letters to the Editor
LGBT students still feel threatened at UF
Last Tuesday, Christina Miller brought
questions about the need for an LGBT
Student Affairs director before the Student
But Christina left the Senate meeting
almost immediately after, not even waiting
for someone to answer her question. We've
been reading the accounts of Christina's
little campus crusade for heterosexuality
in the Alligator recently, and we've even
answered some questions, but we feel
like there are things not being said or said
wrong in the articles. Hopefully this will
clear it up.
The climate here on campus is still very
scary for LGBT students, especially those
who are closeted. In 2003, a campus climate
report was published regarding LGBT stu-
dents stating that they were often afraid
and uncomfortable on their own campus.
LGBT students .have higher incidences
of harassment, verbal and physical, and
are the minority group most likely to feel
scared in dorms, at Homecoming and even
The climate report also showed that
heterosexual students noticed a higher in-
cidence of homophobia and heterosexism
Nationally, gay, lesbian and bisexual
youth are two to three times more likely
to attempt suicide than straight youth.
The attempted suicide rate of transgender
youth is over 50 percent. The reason these
numbers are so high is because we live in a
country of Christina Millers.
When young people come to Christina
(we can only pray for the students under
her care as an RA) with problems about
their sexuality, they are told to change the
desire they never chose, or just deal with
When it comes to the LGBT community
here, we have to fight discrimination daily
merely for the right to exist, and that is why
the position is necessary.

Krishna lunch should remain on campus
David Gruskin's Monday letter to the
editor regarding the Krishna Lunch smacks
of revenge, and, typical of revenge tactics, it
fails to fully consider the issue.
Might I suggest he pay his delinquent
dollar and continue to lunch with the
Krishna, or not pay it and exercise his pref-
erence at any of the high-priced, low-nutri-
tion, corporate feed.stations around the UF
Krishna Lunch is first and foremost the
most affordable lunch option available on
the UF campus. This is in large part due to
the fact that they do not have to rent perma-
nent space and pay service fees to the uni-
versity. This infraction is likely tolerated,
in part, because UF recognizes (I hope) the
benefit of a low-priced, nutritional lunch
to the student body. This alone is reason to
hope for the future existence of the service.
Consider the financial implications of
Gruskin's jaded rant to the hundreds of
students for whom the Krishna Lunch is
their least expensive and most nutritional
Second, Krishna Lunch is the only vege-
tarian option consistently available on cam-
pus. Presumably the food industry does not
believe that vegetarian diners deserve more
than a baked potato (Wendy's) or a veggie
sub (Subway). It is a tremendous benefit to
vegetarian UF students to have one dining
option that is not driven solely by the bot-
Krishna Lunch's existence on campus
may be attributable to a loophole in UF
policy or administration.
It is, in fact, a shame that they have to ex-
ploit it. But do not forget that your $2 dona-
tion is simply another variant of exploiting
a loophole; we students can only hope that
in the long run their karma is better than
UF law school shouldn't focus on race
It is time we think about the minor-
ity issue reasonably. In last Thursday's
Alligator, the students of the Levin College
of Law petitioned for administrators to
accept more peoples of diversity. Several
current Levin students commented that
there are not enough people of their own
The article then gave the current minor-
ity enrollment at the college for the 2005
year as 23 percent and asserted the belief
that Levin had no hopes of entering the Top
10 without raising that number.
First, schools should not be ranked
based on a single percentile. Schools should
be ranked based on the quality of teachers,
students and the ability to produce schol-
ars useful to society. No one can be denied
from law or any other school due to his or
her race this I agree with and absolutely
demand. But if an unqualified student of a
minority background is accepted to a pro-
gram because his or her race will increase-
a school's ratings, then the system becomes
corrupt and unjust.
Instead of feeling sad about not having
enough people of your own background,
why not get to know people of other
cultures? Is that not the point of having

Murderer's execution postponed
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
The execution of the man who
murdered a Pensacola police officer
in 1982 was delayed Tuesday night.
Clarence E. Hill was scheduled
to die by lethal injection at 6 p.m. in
Raiford, but the U.S. Supreme Court
issued a stay, effectively suspending
the execution until further notice.
"Throughout all the years I have
witnessed executions, I have never
witnessed this kind of a delay,"
.said former Florida Department of
Corrections spokeswoman Debbie
Buchanan has witnessed 29
executions and said she has never
been to an execution where wit-
nesses waited an hour and had to
Silence filled the chamber when
Florida State Prison 'assistant war-
den Randall Polk did not give rea-
sons as to why the execution was

ecute Hill as soon as the Supreme
Court makes a decision," Polk said.
Polk said he expects the U.S.
Supreme Court to hold a hearing

"I have never witnessed
this kind of a delay."
Former Florida Department of
Hill has spent 23 years on death
row. Before Hill was nearly execut-
ed, he spent most of his time in his
cell at Florida State Prison, located
On Tuesday, Hill's pen pal from
Italy, Serena Magano, and his spiri-
tual adviser, Khaled Muhammed
visited him in prison.
Some of his sisters and brothers
visited him last week as well.
Hill did not request his last meal
and did not eat the meal that was
provided: glazed ham, fruit glaze,
greens, black eyed peas, coleslaw,
bread, tea and a cookie.
Hill has tried to appeal his execu-
tion several times, but both the state
and U.S. Supreme Courts rejected
Hill has claimed that he should
not be executed because of his
mental retardation, according to an
article in The Miami Herald.
The Supreme Court rejected his
claim because an evaluation showed
that Hill exhibited only mild retar-
dation, according to the article.
Hill was supposed to be injected
with a drug to deaden the pain and
another drug to paralyze the body.
After receiving both drugs, he
would get injected with potassium
chloride, which would induce a fatal

ecutions in Florida, and there have
been 1,006 executions nationwide.

an unnecessary invasion of privacy.
Kyle Cavanaugh, vice president for human resources,
removed the "non-platonic relationship" requirement and
said the remaining criteria should be enough to define the
employee's relationship. The affidavit is no longer posted
"I certainly feel horrible about the confusion that has
surfaced around this," Cavanaugh said. "The intent is to
provide a health benefit to those individuals who are de-
fined as domestic partners."
He added that the "non-platonic" clause was not in-
tended to mean a sexual relationship, but rather to indicate
that the domestic partner was not just a roommate.
It is a standard requirement in domestic partner af-
UF President Bernie Machen wrote in an e-mail that the
wording change was "not a big deal" next to the new pro-
gram itself, which was approved by UF's Board of Trustees
"We didn't want to detract from a significant policy ac-
complishment," he wrote.
Tamara Cohen, UF's lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-
gender affairs director, did not respond to repeated re-
quests for comment.

"We all invest a lot emotionally-in our pets," Hill said.
"When she died, it was a really devastating blow."
Gainesville resident Toni Fair spoke against the new

Gators prepare for season opener against UCF
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
S Alligator Writer
You could see the glow in their
eyes, the smile on their faces and the
hop in their step.
Hundreds of workouts and prac-
tices have prepared them for a day
that is finally here.
"The UF women's tennis team
couldn't be more excited for today's
season-opening dual match against
Central Florida at the Ring Tennis
Complex at 5 p.m.
3010 SW Archer Rd. 374-9227

'"Practice is fun, but it's more
exciting to play," coach Roland
Thomqvist said. "You can drill and
practice until you turn blue, but it's
not going to be the same as laying it
on the line when there's something
there that matters."
The Golden Knights haven't
given the Gators much trouble in the
past, but Thomqvist said it is a good
team to start the season against.
"Traditionally, they are a team
with grinders," he said. "They hit a
lot of balls and make you play."
"It doesn't matter if I play
No. 1 or No. 6 or even if
I'm not in the lineup, as
long as the end result is us
UF tennis player
Former top-ranked singles player
Alexis Gordon makes her return to
the court after sitting out last season
for personal reasons.
The team also features current
No.1 singles player Diana Srebrovic,
who transferred from Virginia after
her freshman year. Srebrovic is fresh
off of her victory at the International
Tennis Association National Indoor
Championships, but said individual
glory is not her goal.
"It doesn't matter if I play No.
1 or No. 6 or even if I'm not in the
lineup, as long as the end result is us
winning," Srebrovic said.
With all the changes the team has
undergone the past two years, team

chemistry is as good as it has eve
been, Thomqvist said.
He said the lineup will be ,

will probably play No. 1 singles
Thomqvist added he has the luxury
of having two players who not onl

also might be the two best player

Gators hope to gain from loss
* BREWER COULD PLAY
AGAINST SOUTH CAROLINA.
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
Adrian Moss has seen it before.
UF's lone senior has been with
the Gators through the highest of
highs and the lowest of lows, the
No. 1 rankings and the first-round
NCAA Tournament defeats.
Now with the No. 5 Gators com-
ing off their first loss of the season,
one in which the top spot in the
polls was on the line, Moss feels
that he's more valuable now than
he's ever been.
He's seen it all and doesn't want
Saturday's defeat at the hands of
Tennessee to snowball into more
"We can either go two ways
with this," Moss said. "We'can
learn from it and become the best
ball dub that we can become, or we
can let this loss turn into two losses
or three losses."
The Gators (17-1, 3-1
Southeastern Conference) will try,
to prevent the losses frompiling up
when they travel to South Carolina
to take on the Gamecocks (10-8, 1-4
SEC) tonight at 8.
And they might also be heading
to Columbia, S.C., with a full com-
pliment of players.
Forward Corey Brewer, who
Donovan said Monday was un-
likely to play after suffering a right
lateral ankle sprairi in the loss to the
Volunteers, may now be available.
Brewer didn't practice again on
Tuesday but will be evaluated after
the team's shoot-around today to
determine if he will be able to play,
according to a team official.
Brewer's added length would
be a great asset for UF against the
Gamecocks, who start four players
Andy Aplcella / Alligator Staff
Forward Adrian Moss, the Gators' lone senior, believes this UF team
has what it takes to overcome its loss to Tennessee.
6-foot-6 or taller.
Without Brewer, who has started
every game since coming to UF, the
Gators would be forced to rely on
6-foot-5 freshman guard David
Huertas and 6-foot backup point
guard Walter Hodge. "
"[Brewer's injury] is going. to
impact us, of course," Moss said.
"Corey's a very good player, a very
good defender, but we've -got to
find a way."

for court storming"
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Tennessee will have to pay the Southeastern Conference
$5,000 for not preventing its fans from rushing the floor
after upsetting then-No. 2 UF 80-76 on Saturday at
Gators coach Billy Donovan and athletics director
Jeremy Foley criticized Tennessee for seemingly allowing
the court-storming incident to take place.
While Foley said he was satisfied with the ruling, a
larger question still remains: Are the fines truly a deter-
"Time will tell," Foley said on Tuesday.
A policy went into effect in December 2004 that would
fine programs, at the SEC commissioner's discretion,
when fans entered the playing field during football or
basketball games. The fines can increase after each infrac-
tion, from $5,000 for a first offense to a possible $50,000
for third and subsequent offenses.
"This policy is designed to create a safe environment
for everyone who participates and attends our athletic
contests," SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said in a state-
ment. "I understand the exuberance of the moment, but
the security and protection of our student-athletes, coach-
es, officials and fans is our primary concern."
Foley said a member of Tennessee's administration
hinted that the fan barrage could have occurred even
before the game had begun. Fans were also accused of 4
harassing UF team employees.
Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl, who's trying to build a
basketball atmosphere in Knoxville, staged a pep rally
prior to the game and had his players enter the arena from
the stairways in the lower bowl seats.
"We'll review like we always do," said Foley when
asked if the fine is enough to deter incidents. "That's a
conversation for a later day. There's an SEC rule and the

Moss: Gators can overcome adversity of losing
HOOPS, from page 19
'ne Gamecocks are coming off a last-
second loss at Kentucky on Saturday, in
which Wildcats' guardRajon Rondo sank a
3-pointer at the hom.
"In the league right now, almost half of
[South Carolina's] shots have been from
behind the 3-point line," Donovan said.
"They're a very, very dangerous team of-

they went.in and played Kentucky... It took

When the Gators went to Columbia last
year, they found themselves down 17 points
before rallying for a 66-65 win.
That came amid a stretch during which
. the Gators won six of their final seven regu-
Moss spoke about teams that have both
rallied under adversity and folded under it
during his time with the Gators and believes
that this team has the rallying mentality.
"I remember the mentality of each team,
of each individual on those teams the
teams that turned in the losses and the
teams that turned in the wins," Moss said.
"And I see nothing but the characteristics
of the teams that turned into wins. on this
team. We'll be just fine."

2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in
just more than 10 minutes per
game for Auburn during the
2003-04 season, had to wait
an entire year to show that he
was an SEC-caliber big man.
Now, the 6-foot-8, 290-
pounder from Chicago is
ranked ninth in the SEC with
14.8 points per game, fifth in
rebounds per game (7.4) and
second in field-goal percent-
Curtis' emergence helps
explain the Rebels' 3-1 confer-
ence record and 14-4 overall
record heading into tonight's
game at Arkansas.
"He's really good at catch-
ing and scoring with the bas-
ketball," Mississippi coach
Rod Barnes said. "I don't
think we've gotten it to him
enough; I would like our kids
to find him a little more. He
has made it easy for us, and
I've really focused on our of-
fense this year, which is why I
think that our defense is what
needs improvement now."
Arkansas coach Stan Heath
said he remembers Curtis as
an Auburn freshman.
"His year off has helped
him elevate his game," Heath
said. "He has trimmed his
body and is a little more chis-
eled. I think he has had a great
year so far."

"We talked about sports and I told
him I went to Florida," Every said.
"He said, 'They've got one hell of a
baseball team down there.'"
Every's no stranger to famous
company. In June, he set a record by
finishing in a tie for 28th place at the
U.S. Open in Pinehurst, N.C., the best
finish for an amateur in Open history.
On the final day, he shot a 70,
the fifth-best round of the day. Tiger
Woods shot a 69. Every almost con-
quered Tiger, so now it was time to
pick the president's brain.
"He wore this decked out, pin-
stripe suit, so I asked him what kind
of suit it was, and he said it was
Brioni," Every said. "When I was
leaving, I asked his assistant how
much it cost, and it turned out to be
about three grand."
Every left the Oval Office with

managed to find his way to the
president's side in the portrait.
But he couldn't leave without talk-

quarterback that committed to
"That's impressive that he knows
about high school football and re-
cruiting," Every said. "So I mentioned
Tim Tebow, but he just kept rambling
on about the guy from Dallas."
Even if Bush isn't familiar with
Tim Tebow, it's a safe bet he won't
forget Matt Every.

said. "I wouldn't mind sitting back
