stories at UF
By KORI FREDERICK
Whether dealing with snobbish house guests or secretly
mocking a college professor for overstressing his pronuncia-
tion of Nicaragua, memoirist David Sedaris finds humor in
the tiniest details.
In his calm, sarcastic voice, Sedaris read three of his
short stories to an audience in the Philips Center for the
Performing Arts on Thursday night. The first story detailed
the difficulties Americans have communicating with one
another in foreign countries.
Sedaris had used French words to name all the rabbits
Parisian yard and had the audience in
A snooty American dinner guest
insisted that Sedaris had named the
rabbits after verbs instead of nouns and
proceeded to give Sedaris a mini gram-
"I thought, 'What difference does it
Sedaris make if they are nouns or verbs? They're
my bunnies,'" he read. "Oh, look at Runny and Moist.
They're about to go visit their old friend Screened-in-
In addition to reading his stories to an audience of about
850 Gainesville "Sedarists," he also fielded questions and
signed books after the show.
Sedaris' visit was sponsored by WUFT-FM Classic 89 and
Sedaris got his start in the early 1990s through National
Public Radio and then branched out as a writer. He is the
best-selling author of "Me Talk Pretty One Day," "Dress
Your Family in Denim and Corduroy" and "Naked."
Sedaris' seamless transitions between vignettes of his
story kept his audience enthralled.
He talked about the Polish man he sat next to on a "busi-
ness elite" who wept the entire flight from New York to Paris
because his mother had just passed away. And then, without
losing a beat, he transitioned to a tale of childhood dinners
with his Greek grandmother who farted incessantly.
"Nothing irritated my father more than the sound of his
children's happiness," he read from his story "Cry Baby,"
which will be published in The New Yorker.
His father kept a heavy wooden spoon at the dinner table
that he would hit the children with if they got too rambunc-
tious, he said.
"There were nights the spoon would have blood on it,"
he read. "There would be nights hair would stick to the

A UF engineering professor has been hon-

in the field of electronics.
Stephen J. Pearton, professor of materials
science and engineering, won the Electron

The society, a part of the Institute for

Barton Weitz, executive director
of UF's Miller Center for Retailing
Education and Research, said in a
phone interview that even with all
the financial woes facing Florida
residents this year, retailers can ex-
pect a successful holiday season.
Based on a tele-
State phone survey of 525
News state residents last
month, Floridians es-
timate they will spend about $1,325
each this holiday season, according
to a UF press release.
Weitz said the survey showed
an obvious disparity in consumers'
incomes compared with the results
of last year.
"We do know there has been this
general widening of the income gap
between the haves and the have-
nots that has been going on for
quite awhile," he said in the press
Of those surveyed, 81 percent
of consumers with household in-
comes of more than $60,000 plan to
spend the same or more than they
did last year.
In comparison, 42 percent of
those with incomes under $30,000
said they plan to spend less than
last year, according to the study.

Blah. That's how this week has been. We're all hitting that
mid-semesterslump. Midterms have turned us into hermits.
Papers have us gnawing our pencils. Starbucks has prob-
ably sold more cups of coffee this week than all the previous
weeks this semester combined.
And sleep? What's sleep? Maybe we'll finally find out this
weekend. Hopefully your exams are coming to a close and
you can clear those textbooks off your bed so you can, you
know, sleep on it. But for now, take a five-minute study break
for this week's high-stress edition of...
Darts & Laurels
To start it all off, we throw a nothing-causes-stress-
like-money DART at the Student Government Elections
Commission, which fined the Gator Party $75 for breaking
two campaigning rules.
Don't get us wrong. We're not darting the commission for
fining Gator. We're darting it because $75 wasn't much for
the Gator Party, which ran its campaign on a budget of about
$3,500. To put things into perspective, the $75 fine was equal
to what each Senate candidate was encouraged to donate to
But just about every candidate wore the campaign T-shirt,
which violated the election codes by not including the phrase
"Pd. Pol. Ad."
Perhaps more seriously, several party members were cam-
paigning outside Matherly Hall during voting, which broke
another rule but that garnered only a warning.
A paltry $75 fine doesn't seem like much incentive for fu-
ture SG parties to follow all the rules. If SG wants us to take
it more seriously, it should start by showing that it's taking
itself more seriously.
This week, a new Student Senate president and president
pro-tempore were elected. So we've got to give a what-do-
you-guys-do-again? DART to Kevin Reilly and Kellie Dale,
the Senate's new top leaders. Neither did much as a senator
even though both have been in the system for a few semes-
Hopefully that will change and they'll start making names
for themselves. Not just on committees and on the third floor
of the Reitz Union, but by showing students those "tangible
benefits" the Gator Party keeps promising.
While our Senate does absolutely nothing, here's a
it's-a-high-stress-special-session DART for the Florida
Legislature, which will probably vote today whether to
approve a bill that would create a technology fee and raise
tuition every year based on inflation. Let's just say we're not
thrilled with this political stunt.
If approved, this bill could actually decrease the amount
of money Florida's public community colleges and universi-
ties receive from tuition. The Legislature could say, "Why do
you need more tuition increases? We already increased it to
But without this automatic increase, tuition increases
could actually be bigger. If the state wants to use this as a
jumping-off point for other increases, that's great. But we
have the sinking feeling that's not how it will work out.
Finally, we have a nothing-relieves-stress-like-a-good-
read LAUREL for the Friends of the Library Book. Sale,
which opens its doors early Saturday morning hey, 9 a.m.
is early to us, especially since we usually use Saturdays for
catching up on sleep. The sale isn't just books, though. It's
CDs, magazines, records, games, puzzles ... the list goes on.
But even more, it's a Gainesville tradition. Devoted buy-
ers will camp out tonight. The fiber-thrifty among us will
wait until Tuesday and Wednesday, when items go down
to half-price and 10 cents, respectively. If you want to build
your personal library, there's no cheaper way to do it.
And having worn, well-loved copies of "Great
-Expectations" and "Jane Eyre" will make you look oh-so-
educated even if you don't have time to actually read
them because of all your schoolwork.

Virgins out of place in hook-up culture
W hen people think of college, they prob-
ably think of a smorgasbord of sex. Education
comes to mind, too, but we college students
live in an environment where sex is constantly on the
Let's look at the facts. We are young adults with simi-
lar goals in life, and the majority of us aren't concerned
with developing serious relationships. This is the one
time in our lives when it is OK to experiment. We will
have the rest of our lives to be serious, right?
Rolling Stone Magazine may have said it best when
it described college as the "booze-fueled culture of the
I guess it said it best, considering I'm not exactly part
of that hookup culture. Because, um, the truth is ... the
truth is ...I am still a virgin.
"What? You're still a virgin?" I can feel you asking
as your eyes boggle out of their sockets. Yeah, I am.
And no, I'm not extremely religious or anything, I just
haven't done it yet and it's beginning to stress me
Being a virgin in college can be pretty nerve-wrack-
ing-because it seems like everyone has already "done
it." Friends who used to be able to relate to my ner-
vousness are now retelling saucy stories from the night
"Aww, Colleen, don't worry," they say reassuringly
as soon as they remember I'm not as experienced as
they are. "You'll learn all about this stuff when you start
Psh, yeah. Maybe when I'm 40.
Because I've waited this long, I feel like I'm doomed
to remain chaste forever because the window of oppor-
tunity for a not-so-awkward first time ended when high
At least when we were a
little younger, the majority of our
peers were inexperienced, so it
didn't matter if you were "good"
or "bad" because no one knew
the difference anyway.
Colleen Shea But as we get older, most
firstname.lastname@example.org potential partners have already
"done it," which means they
have something to compare it to.
Never having sex before adds a layer of uncertainty
to the nature of relationships. When should you men-
tion that you've never done it? Is it the first date, second
date hold on, do people in college even go on dates?
But now that we're older, how long do people usually
wait before they have sex?
I know.it is different for everyone, but it doesn't help
when people constantly tell you different things. Some
people wait two weeks into their relationship to have
sex while others wait four months.
It also doesn't help when a lot of friends say, "Oh
man, you'll hate your first time I did." Gee, thanks.
That's really going to make my stress-o-meter jump a
few notches, as if I weren't already nervous enough.
Why can't we all just go back to the time when ev-
erything was simple and innocent, when all you had to
do if you wanted a boyfriend or girlfriend was to write
"Yes" or "No" on a folded piece of paper and wait for
your crush to circle a reply? It was so much easier that
Oh well, there's no point in wasting time worrying
about sex because it'll happen when it happens even
if I have to wait until I'm 40.

New Senate pres. won't bring change
After the changing of the guard in the
Student Senate, we now have another Gator
Party insider attempting to implement the
party's failed agenda.
Kevin Reilly produced anemic results as
the Senate's president pro tempore. If you can
name one significant "tangible accomplish-
ment" the Senate has implemented since the
spring election, then I applaud you. Reilly
trumpets his experience in the Senate running
two Senate committees as proof of his qualifi-
cation. If anything, this "experience" is indica-
tive of Reilly's do-nothing philosophy
The Gator Party prides itself on "tangible
results." Where are these changes in the lives
of UF students? What exactly has the Senate
done to improve UF since Gator's near-sweep
of the spring election?
The answer is nothing, and as Kevin Reilly

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TALLAHASSEE The U.S. Supreme Court, not

stay an execution set next month while the federal
justices consider a lethal injection challenge, a law-

The Florida Supreme Court heard oral argument

One Florida inmate, Mark Dean Schwab, 38, is
scheduled to die Nov. 15 for the rape and murder
of 11-year-old Junny Rios-Martinez, of Cocoa, who
was killed by smothering or choking.
Justice Harry Lee Anstead sharply questioned
Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Nunnelley on
his opposition to delaying Schwab's execution until
the federal justices rule in a Kentucky case.
"I'm having difficulty seeing what the urgency
is of going forward with an execution when we're
about to get the law from the horse's mouth,"
Anstead raised the issue in the case of Ian Deco
Lightbourne, who is not yet under a death warrant.
Lightbourne has been convicted of killing Nancy

McGuire Center releases more than 500 butterflies
* THE CENTER WILL TRACK THE MONARCH
BUTTERFLIES' MIGRATION PATTERNS.
By LINDSEY ROBINSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
A swarm of monarch butterflies, their familiar orange-and-
black markings shining under soft museum lights, dung to
wires in the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity,
waiting to be free.
The McGuire Center will release more than 500 mon-
arch butterflies to monitor their migration patterns at the
ButterflyFest on Saturday and Sunday.
Eight UF students and one high school student bred about a
hundred of the far-flying monarchs to be released in the rearing
lab of the Butterfly Rainforest.
This is the first year that monarchs will be tagged and let
loose at the festival.
Thomas Emmel, the director at the McGuire Center, said the
butterflies will be released hourly over the course of the event.
Every year, up to two billion monarchs from east of the
Rocky Mountains migrate to one of just 12 sites within 100
square miles in central Mexico.
But very little is known about the route that monarchs from
North Florida take.
The tracking tags, which are dose to a quarter of an inch in
diameter, will be fixed to the butterflies' wings, Emmel said.
On the tags is the program's Web site, phone number and a
unique tag number for each butterfly, all written in very, very
Emmel received the tags Sept. 19 from Monarch Watch, a
conservation program out of the University of Kansas.

UF toxicologists are worried
pharmaceutical chemicals in the

Florida's environment, UF re-
The federal rule for getting rid
of old medicine is to simply put it
down the drain.
Researchers at the Analytical
Toxicology Core Laboratory
are studying bull sharks in the
Caloosahatchee River in Fort
Myers and the sharks' intake of
leftover residue from old medi-
cine in the water.
Their research is a joint op-
eration with the Mote Marine
Laboratory in Sarasota.
The Mote lab tags the sharks in
the Caloosahatchee with implant-
ed disks of silicone, which collect
chemicals deposited by medicines
into the water.
When the sharks are caught,
the disks are retrieved and sent for
analysis to the scientists at the UF
Analytical Toxicology Core Lab.
At the lab, they try to deter-
mine which chemicals are present
and what pharmaceuticals they

Nancy Szabo, director of the
lab and co-leader of the investiga-
tion, said bull sharks are an excel-
lent measuring tool for the study.
Szabo said because bull sharks
are able to live in both freshwater
and saltwater environments, they

"Typically, a drug contains
much more of the active ingredi-
ent than the body will actually
use," Szabo said.
Sometimes the body will only
absorb 7 percent to 15 percent of a
given medication, she added. The
rest literally goes down the toilet.
Bull sharks are "also top-level
predators, meaning they are the
end-of-the-line on the food chain
for many other organisms.
This means that if a small fish
absorbs a certain chemical and is
eaten by a bull shark, the shark

Cross country teams travel to Pre-NCAA Invitational
* THE UF WOMEN'S GOLF TEAM
HEADS TO TENNESSEE.
By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
The level of UF's opposition will increase
tremendously Saturday in the final and most
competitive regular season event for the
Gators men's and women's cross country
Both squads will take their places in the
Pre-NCAA Invitational in Terre Haute, Ind.,
the site of the NCAA Championship, against
some of the nation's top-ranked teams.
The men and the 20th-ranked women will
be joined by nearly 50 ranked teams in the
Leading the Gators will be junior Jeremy
Criscione, who is coming off a second place
finish at the Auburn Invitational just two
weeks ago where he posted a career-best time
The race was his first since undergoing
hernia surgery before the season began.
Criscione said he feels like he can build
on that finish and help the men keep up their
current pace to compete with the best teams
in the country.
"A lot of the guys have been running re-
ally well, so hopefully we can all stay pretty
close and try and keep the time in our spread
pretty close," he said. "If we can get a few of
us up there in the top 10 to 20, that would
help the team score out a lot."
The men have finished third in the meet
each of the past two years, and Criscione said
the team is ready for the challenge to claim
another high result.
"Anything's possible," he said. "If we can
bring a few guys a lot closer to the front ...
then we can be in the top five."
The women will take the course for their
6k run following the men's race and will be
led by junior Jacy Kruzel.
Kruzel, who was named Southeastern
Conference Female Athlete of the Week on
Oct. 3, is coming off a career-best 5k time of
16:57.74 at the Auburn Invitational. She was
the first UF runner to finish in less than 17
minutes since 1986.
Despite her accomplishments, she has
only one focus this weekend.
"It's all about beating the other ranked
teams," she said.
Kruzel noted that defeating then-No. 14
Iowa at the last meet was exciting for the
team and gave them a step in the right direc-
She knows the challenge the Gators face
on Saturday will be extremely difficult, but
she and her teammates won't stand down.
"There's definitely big, top-10 teams, so
we just have to go in there and not get scared
that we can't compete against them," she
said. "We have just as much ability and even'
probably more motivation."

Cunningham lets tackles do talking
UF sophomore defensive end Jermaine Cunningham tallied a career-
high 17 tackles in a 28-24 loss at No. 1 LSU on Saturday.
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
It's one of those stat lines that make early-morning
risers spit out their coffee when scanning newspaper
UF No. 49 Cunningham, J., 17 tackles.
One of the positives that came out of the 28-24 loss
at top-ranked LSU was the continued emergence of
sophomore defensive end Jermaine Cunningham.
Yet Cunningham, coming off the best game of his
career, declined interview requests three days later.
"Jermaine doesn't talk that much," said Ron
Gartrell, Cunningham's coach at Stone Mountain (Ga.)
Stephenson High. "He's a little bit shy."
He certainly didn't look timid
Saturday. He added two pass breakups
and nearly doubled his tackling output
for the entire season, giving him 36 stops
Football in six games in his first year as a starter.
His teammates reacted with a wow
as the stats accumulated.
"That's what everybody was saying, they were like,
'Cunningham is in the right spot in the right time,'"
cornerback Joe Haden said.
Cunningham led a trend of emerging youngsters on
a defense that returned just two starters.
He is a speedy 6-foot-3, 229-pound pass rusher who
has gained strength to complement his inherent quick-
ness since arriving on campus. He used both attributes
to make his biggest play of the season two weeks ago
On a fake punt attempt, he sped to the sideline
and delivered a key open-field tackle late in the fourth
He followed that up with five tackles, 1.5 for loss,
against Auburn and his out-of-this-world performance
The 17 tackles were the most since Channing
Crowder's 18 against Mississippi State in 2004.
UF coach Urban Meyer attributed Cunningham's
development to what else? good coaching.
"(Co-defensive coordinator Greg) Mattison has a lot
of confidence when he's all over the field," Meyer said.
"I've never heard of a defensive end with 17 tackles.

Over the past two years, questions

hype, showed glimpses of potential in limited min-

His season-high 16 points came against Jackson

The 6-foot-10 St. Petersburg native now assumes
a vital role as the only inside presence on the roster.
Donovan said he has seen improvement from
Speights but is still undecided on what to expect
from the big man.
"I think that for Marreese right now, handling all
that's going to be thrown at him is something he's
got to do," Donovan said. "Marreese is a competitive
