Postgame celebrations lead to infirmary visits
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
By Tuesday afternoon, many students
had traded the drunken roar of midtown
bars for the TV soap operas in the Student
Health Care Center waiting rooms.
After the Gators' win Monday night,
students climbed traffic poles, tore up
trees and got as close to strangers as they
do to their bedsheets. Some woke up with
bodily reminders of the night before.
"It seemed to me that there was an
increased volume of injured patients
(Tuesday)," said Guy Nicolette, assistant
director of the student health care center,
"and most of those injuries were related to

lated to postgame celebrations."

State delegate speaks at UF
* REP. CANNON SAID HE SUPPORTS UF'S
ACADEMIC ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM.
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Former Student Body president and current
state Rep. Dean Cannon returned to Gainesville
Wednesday morning to discuss the upcoming legis-
lative session and his alma mater.
Cannon, R-Winter Park, who is gearing up to be-
come speaker of the House in 2010, addressed about
100 people as they dined on bacon and eggs at the
UF Hilton Hotel and Conference Center as a part of
the Community Campus Council Breakfast Series.
After a 15-minute speech, Cannon addressed the
audience's questions and concerns, which mainly
focused on UF's importance to Florida's education
system and economic development.
"I really believe this is the best public university
in the country," he said of UF "It made a profound
impact on my life."
In an interview after the speech, Cannon said he
supports UF's proposed Academic Enhancement
Program, which is heading to the Legislature for
The program, which was approved in November
by the Florida Board of Governors the body that
oversees Florida's 11 public universities will
charge incoming UF students an
additional $1,000 each year start-
ing in the Fall. The money will go
toward hiring 200 faculty mem-
bers and 100 academic advisers.
However, he said -it was too
early to tell if the tuition hike will
pass through the Legislature.
Cannon During his speech, Cannon
said many of the issues facing the
Legislature originated from an initiative to gamer
"It's so easy to become insulated in Tallahassee,"
Cannon said constituents' worries ranged from
road congestion to their children "talking to perverts
on social networking Web sites."
He expressed hope that Democrats and
Republicans could work together to find solutions.
"Our system may not be perfect, but I believe it's
the best," he said.

Machen signs pledge to make UF more ecofriendly
By JESSICA DaSILVA
UF President Bernie Machen,
who has made strides to limit his
university's environmental foot-
print, is teaming up with other
university presidents to curb global
warming and make campuses
across the nation more sustainable.
Machen signed the American
College & University Presidents
Climate Commitment, which seeks
to move. universities toward "cli-
mate neutrality," according to a
Machen and the heads of
Arizona State and Ball State uni-
versities were the first to sign the
pledge, which they hope 380 more
leaders will join.
Dedee DeLongpre, director of
UF's Office of Sustainability, defined
climate neutrality as the balance be-
tween the amount of carbon dioxide
emitted and absorbed.
The presidents' pact calls for
their institutions to come up with
plans to reduce greenhouse emis-
sions as soon as possible.
A group is already working on
UF's plan, DeLongpre said.
"We have a general idea of what
it's going to take," she said. "UF has
been working toward the goal for
In 2005, Machen announced
he wanted to make all of UF's
solid waste completely recyclable
On Monday, UF announced a
new car-sharing program that will
allow students and faculty access to
low-emission vehicles and parking
spaces on campus for a fee.
SDeLongpre added that some cur-
rent practices to reduce consump-
tion like turning off appliances
during university breaks help,
but simply unplugging those appli-
ances would help more.
"Believe it or not, but there's
something called 'plug load,'" she
said. "If its still

of the wall."
Mark van Soestbergen, the co-
ordinator for Climate Neutrality
Task Group which works with
UF's sustainability program said
the estimated 10,000 appliances
plugged into UF's walls cost about
$850,000 each year.
However, van Soestbergen
said the 10,000 appliances 'alone
emit 6,000 tons of carbon dioxide
- enough to fill the Empire State
Building three times.
DeLongpre also said' another
component in reaching climate neu-
trality lies in the understanding of
faculty and students. If all of the UF
community understood the impor-
tance of reaching climate neutrality,
she said, they would make every
decision with it in mind.
"We could do all of those things,
but there's a very important human
element. It's not just a technological
solution," she said. "People need to
participate in it and people on cam-
pus need to understand the impact
on their daily traditions."
Van Soestbergen agrees, but he
said UF is on the right path to reach-
ing climate neutrality, which he add-
ed would take anywhere between 15
and 25 years to accomplish.
"We're just beginning to ar-
ticulate all the things we need to
do to get there," van Soestbergen
said. "The road to climate neutral-
ity needs to be described better," he
added. "We understand the outline
of it, but we need to get all the de-
tails of the plan filled in."

Bush apologizes for mistakes, announces troop surge
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Staff Writer
President Bush announced in a
televised speech Wednesday that
he is sending more than 20,000
American troops to Iraq.
The troops, he said, will help
Iraqis dear and secure neighbor-
hoods, protect the local population,
and ensure that the Iraqi forces left
behind are capable of providing the
security that Baghdad needs.

George W. Bush
President of the U.S.A.

States' relations with the Middle
East, said that this might be the last
chance Bush has to improve the situ-
ation in Iraq.
Bush said that with the troop in-
crease the United States would have
the necessary forces to hold the areas
that have been cleared of terrorists.
This would be unlike earlier op-
erations, where "Iraqi and American
forces cleared many neighborhoods
of terrorists and insurgents but

targets, the killers returned," Bush

Troop increase is just
more of the same
A s President Bush delivered his speech Wednesday
night about his revised plans for Iraq, we couldn't
help but grit our teeth and choke back our tears.
We all knew what was coming, and we all knew it
wouldn't be good.
Congress and the American people are skeptical of Bush's
plans for increasing troops by more than 20,000 five new
brigades. Bush has taken us in the wrong direction before.
Why should we believe his "new" strategy will work?
Not to mention that this is hardly a new strategy. It's
like taking out a loan when you run out of money. It
doesn't solve the problem, it just delays it. Likewise, add-
ing more troops just puts off transferring control of Iraq to
its people. Perhaps this plan could have worked a year or
two ago, but in 2007 it's too little, too late.
We hope House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-
Calif.) has her boxing gloves on for the next meeting of
Congress because this "strategy" is not going to go over
well on the Hill there is support and opposition of the
plan from both sides.
As Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said in
the Democratic Party's response, 20,000 troops is too few
for victory in Iraq, but too many American lives to risk.
The good news is that Bush admitted, "Where mistakes
have been made, the responsibility rests with me." This
was a long time coming since "Mission Accomplished"
in May 2003. But why did he deny for so long what the
public has known for months? It's like Bush & Co. won't
admit they're wrong until they have a "solution" and the
public won't allow them to deny it any longer.
But he chose the wrong plan of attack.
Democratic Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina said
he believes the violence is going to get worse despite the
troop increase. Even Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) one of
the senators to originally propose the troop increase -
agrees, yet he supports Bush. Damned if you do, damned
if you don't.
But Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) put it best: There needs
to be a political solution, not a military one.
Bush is right when he says that there is "no magic for-
mula" for success in Iraq. But at this point, what is a win?
How long do we have to wait until the day when the Bush
administration can dust off its hands and say, "Well, our
work here is done"?
Iraq is only in the infancy of its democracy and we can-
not expect it to stand on its own immediately. But pumping
troops in every time things get rough will not solve Iraq's
problems. What could work is if the Sunni party could set
aside their differences and invite Shia leaders to join them
in a joint government, as Edwards pointed out.
"Only the Iraqis can end the sectarian violence," Bush
said. He also said, paradoxically, that withdrawing troops
would actually cause us to stay in Iraq longer. Yet it was
announced today that the troop increase will be bolstered
by extending '.ours of duty.
Maybe the only real way to get the troops home is to
actually start bringing them home.
America has spent more than $400 billion and lost more
than 3,000 American lives. It is time for a real solution, not
just a delay of the inevitable.

Apple shouldn't be criticized for iPhone
In reading Wednesday's editorial, "Wormy
Apple," I couldn't help but shake my head at
its anti-capitalist mentality. Please allow me to
clarify some of the false premises it contained.
Choosing the words "dominant force" to
describe Apple Inc., whether consciously or
not, implies that the company is domineering
or that it uses force to have its way. This is not
the case. A company cannot force its products
on anyone. Both the customer and Apple must
see a benefit in the transaction, or the exchange
wouldn't occur. Apple has become the "domi-
nant force" only because it has earned its cus-
The Alligator then asked, "When did Apple
became so iCorporate?" I ask in reply, when
did the word "corporate" assume such a nega-
tive connotation? It is exactly the motivation
of self-interest that has enabled Apple to create
such insanely great products and inventions.
If it weren't for its ability to profit, the products
from which you benefit wouldn't even exist.
Finally, the editorial suggests that Apple
may one day-become the target of an anti-
trust case, yet it provides.no reasons why it
would deserve such prosecution. If Apple.is
successful at making computers, why then
can't it apply its genius to making phones as
well? By declaring that it can't compete in dif-
ferent markets (and what company doesn't?),
you punish Apple's workers for their achieve-
ments and reward others for their failures. You
have turned morality on its head.

April Dudash has apparently never
watched the news after teams win big games.
Many cities have to call in the riot police when
their town or school's team wins a champion-
ship. The Mayor of Columbus, Ohio, called it
a "good night" when only 40 fires were set fol-
lowing this year's Ohio State-Michigan game.
If Ohio State had won the national champion-
ship game, there probably would have been
massive arrests and hospitalizations, along
with every couch in a 50-mile radius from
OSU's campus being set on fire.
So let's look at the tally from the celebration

Oh, and I hear one guy broke his ankle step-

With the thousands of very drunk people
roaming around University Avenue and UF's
campus Monday night, the fact that there were
only three DUIs and only one person seriously
hurt is a huge testament to the class, civility
and intelligence of Gators fans.
I don't know about Ms. Dudash, but I'd
much rather have police taking pictures with
partyers than them beating each other with
fists and rubber batons.

ai !one representative on
my best albums of 2006 list,
Clipse's much-delayed second
album is no less of a stunner.
Where "Fishscale" is all over the place, a
24-track long kaleidoscope of witty word-
play and honeyed beats, "Hell Hath No
Fury" is a taut, gripping, brutally-focused
document. Though brothers Malice and
Pusha T don't rap about anything new for
the genre (they focus on the drug trade),
they do it without a trace of hedonism,
painting the brutality of street life in ugly,
unglamorous strokes. The beats, furnished
here exclusively by the Neptunes, bolster
the duo's narratives with a sense claus-
trophobic decay and hopelessness. These
guys are serious.
Vetiver "to Jind Ate gone"
s far as simple, pas-
t-,ral prettiness goes,
nothing in 2006 beat
Vetiver's second album.
In a year when the best re-
leases in folk were marked
by an ever-increasing
penchant for grandiosity and ambition,
"To Find Me Gone" emphasized ocean
song craft, gentle atmospherics and an
overarching sense of subtle tranquility.
Though the entire album ranging from
"American Beauty"-era Grateful Dead
shuffles to nocturnal psych-folk rumina-
tions is remarkably consistent, it is
when Vetiver stretches out that the band
best fulfills its potential. The last two min-
utes of "No One Would," when strings
languidly ebb and flow through expan-
sively airy, wordless vocals and tranquil,
fingerpicked guitar, ranks among the
most gorgeous moments of 2006.

31 tracks across 44 minutes, Dilla pays

A surplus of tattoo shops has
sparked a "tattoo renaissance"
W sbile beabins toit on
University Avenue from 13th Street, you'll
see a tattoo shop called Devil's Domain. A
block later you'll pass Bodytech Tattooing
& Piercing. Turn right on Sixth Street, and
you'll find recent addition Anthem Tattoo
Parlor, or keep cruising and you'll arrive at
Xtreme Illusions in the heart of downtown.
That's right. Four havens of degenerate
behavior and antisocial tendencies within
a half-mile of each other. That is, at least,
what you might expect.
So many tattoo shops within a short dis-
tance of each other often evokes images of
dirty streets littered with hole-in-the-wall
bars and tough-looking rebels roaming the
alleys. But in Gainesville, these tattoo par-
lors get neighborly with cozy coffee shops,
nice restaurants, eclectic bookstores and a
slew of small businesses. And they're more
clean and welcoming than dark and scary.
1 neblet abobe tJt remst
Despite a strong market supported
by everyone from tattoo collectors to re-
bellious students, it is difficult for these
businesses to survive. Skin's In and KaOz
recently joined the late Waves, Cool World
and Creative Bodies on the tally of de-
ceased tattoo joints.
Bodytech, in its eighth year, is the
longest-lasting shop in town. Manager
and piercer Justin Berk credits its success
to the shop's reputation for cleanliness,
quality and a guarantee of satisfaction. He
explained that the artists do their best to
make their clients happy by customizing
every tattoo and offering free touchups.
Brothers Hasan "Buddha" and Alneami
"Abe" Alansari opened Xtreme Illusions
seven years ago, and in August 2006 they
introduced a second tattoo parlor called
Devil's Domain closer to campus.
Buddha said they are successful because
his staff strives to make clients feel impor-
tant and safe. He also explained that ocean,
quality work is a necessity for a shop's
"The businesses that don't take this
(sanitation) stuff seriously don't survive,"
Buddha said. "I'm germaphobic, basi-
The proverbial "new kid on the block"
is Anthem Tattoo Parlor, operated by self-
proclaimed "local boys" Dave Kotinsley,.
Ken Henderson, Rob Barnes and Mike
Mehaffey. They were struck with entre-
preneurial spirit in the fall and officially
opened the parlor Jan. 2.
They decided to create a venue less
about walk-in appeal than the shops on
University Avenue, Kotinsley said. The
Anthem boys wanted to provide the per-
fect atmosphere for people to take their
time to find exactly what they want.
Tk g tin te from totmpetition
Just as musicians compete with each
other and inspire each other to better their
music, tattoo artists in town have a simi-
lar healthy competition, credited to what
Kotinsley called the "tattoo renaissance."
Artists are working to fight the strange
urban legends and ste-
reotypes about tattoos.
Buddha explained that
society is becoming
more educated about .
tattoos as a form of
art. Many people are
becoming tattoo col- '
lectors by using their '
bodies to display the -
works of art. '
Kotinsley said that
when he sees a great
tattoo by another artist
in town, it stimulates
"We inspire each
other as profession-
als and as artists,"
Kotinsley said. '
Buddha agreed it is :
important to make ev-
ery tattoo experience
"They will never
forget the music that
was playing, the per-
son who tattooed them
or what they talked
about," Buddha ex- Custo
plained. "Every tattoo
is a personal memory."

Lindsey Armstrong got her first tat-
too in February 2006 as a tribute to her
recovery from a four-year eating disorder.
She thought that the small, abstract heart
- a symbol of recovery etched onto her
wrist would be her last.
"They say once you get one that you'll
get more," Armstrong said.
In June, Armstrong was marked again
with seven black and blue stars on her rib
cage, and in October she got the quote,
"Where words fail, music speaks," printed
on her hip. She plans to get a fleur-de-lis be-.
hind her ear in dedication to New Orleans,
which she calls her second home.
Armstong said that she enjoys the tattoo
shop atmosphere so much that she often

Lauren Vandewall knew that she
wanted to get a tattoo in remembrance of
her mother, who died of breast cancer four
Vandewall visited Xtreme Illusions and
met with tattoo, artist Marc Veneziano.
She explained that she wanted a big, pink
phoenix to symbolize rebirth. Veneziano
sketched ideas, and the two met to discuss
them several times. He made sure to make
it as perfect as possible, Vandewall said.
She looks at the large phoenix that
stretches from the top of her rib cage to her
hip every single day and never regrets it.
Vandewall said that it's therapeutic to look
at and talk about.
"Every time someone asks me about it,
I tell the story of my mother," Vandewall
said. "It keeps her cose to me."

WOMEN'S, from page.22
and play like we know how. Sometimes it gets a little
frustrating when you know you played your hardest,
but we can't control that."
One of the "tall players" Bowden is referring to
is Volunteers do-it-all 6-foot-4 sophomore Candace
Parker. Here's the bottom line: Parker is the most tal-
ented and versatile player in the country. She's listed
at every position, and, yes, she can dunk.
But still, the Gators aren't intimidated.
"I'm the type of player who doesn't back down
from anybody," Bowden said. "She's a good player,
but me and Marshae (Dotson) are going to do the best
we can to contain her."
Although Parker is the creme de la creme of the
Volunteers' attack, Peck knows her team can't forget
their other weapons either.
"With Candace, if you spend too much time just fo-
cusing on her, they have other players that can step up
and shoot," Peck said. "What we're going to have to
do is mix up how we guard her. We have to try not to
let her get in a rhythm; she creates a lot of her offense
off her defense."
So, do the Gators have a chance?
Well, UF wasn't given great odds last year either,
but they were still able to go into Knoxville on senior
night and upset the Volunteers 95-93 in overtime.
"That game should be motivation for this year's
team," "said Tennessee coach
Pat Summitt via teleconference
Wednesday. "Without question,
they understand what happened
and what can happen if you're not
ready to play. Florida is not a team
that they will take lightly. This team
respects Florida, and hopefully we'll
Peck be ready to play. I would expect us
to be ready."
Summitt also said the game probably cost her
squad a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
But still, even with the struggles, senior Kim Dye
knows that the effort is there.
"It's tough, don't get me wrong," Dye said. "But
when you have players that are willing to sacrifice
their bodies and get in shape during the season (you
can't ask for more). People are coming in doing cardio
during the season and that shows how dedicated we
are to each other and the team."
OUT LOUD, from page 22
And in a sport as physical as football, these guys have to
worry about the possibility of an injury derailing their NFL
It seems to me that Nelson's decision is essentially a no-
brainer. Why should a bona fide first-rounder take the risk of
'coming back for his senior season? And with Nelson playing
nearly flawless all season long, it doesn't appear he needs
another year of college coaching. But aside from Nelson, the
decisions become a little trickier.
Freak of nature Jarvis Moss received his paperwork back
from the NFL and is projected to be a second-round pick.
Because of his unusual athleticism, Moss could stand to gain
from a successful senior season, but there is no guarantee
Moss' value would rise. Moss said he was leaning towards
leaving last week.
Nobody thought Smith was an NFL prospect before he
arrived in Gainesville, but after coming up with eight intercep-
tions in 2006, Smith could decide this is his chance to cash in
while his stock is high. .
Perhaps the most likely to return is Siler, who has avoided
all the NFL talk since submitting his paperwork.
In a draft that could be heavy on linebackers, Siler may be
able to benefit from a monster senior season. And if there is one
guy the Gators can't afford to lose, it may be Siler, as his leader-
ship would be sorely missed, not to mention the Gators' lack of
depth at linebacker.
Regardless, Saturday's celebration isn't about next season
or the year after, it's about what the 2006 UF squad accom-
But Gators fans should truly celebrate this special team, be-
cause it's a team that could look different come September.

As one of only three seniors
on the UF men's basketball team,
Lee Humphrey is not taking any
chances this season. That's why he
has sworn off his bicycle. ,
Humphrey infamously sepa-
rated his shoulder on Jan. 29 when
he fell riding off a curb. The injury
prevented Humphrey from play-
ing two days later in UF's victory
against Mississippi. He put up an
0-1 performance from the three-

Carolina on Feb.
8 when he scored
12 points, all from three-pointers.
While the guard received a new
seat for the bike as a Christmas
present, he said he will not be rid-

"I'm only going to get to play
basketball for a couple more
months," Humphrey said. "I'll go
back to riding it after we're done."
That's good news for the Gators
