ECU student shares his
passion with the world
Lean already has overseas performing experience in countries like Sweden, Italy, France and Great Britain.
Nathan Lean travels to
Morocco this summer
CLAIRE MURPHY
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Junior piano performance
major, Nathan Lean, will be trav-
eling to Morocco this summer to
share his skills in music and meet
a few special people.
The opportunity for this trip
came about in his Global Under-
standing class this semester. In this
class, you meet in the morning, a
class in another country meets at
a different time and you have class
together through screen and sound.
It has given several students,
including Lean, thechancetomake
friends from all over the world.
This summer Lean will travel
to Morocco to meet the partner
he was assigned in class and
faculty members from that uni-
versity. He has written a piano
piece for them and will play it
during his visit, in addition to a
few select classical pieces.
Lean went to Eastern Wayne
High School in Goldsboro, N.C.
He studies classical piano with Dr.
Charles Bath and jazz piano with
Dr. Paul Tardif. He has played for
nearly IS years and was involved
in StageStruck Children's The-
ater where he w?s a rehearsal
accompanist and flayed in the
orchestra for musicals.
When asked why he chose
Morocco over other places, Lean
said, "I believe that now, more
than ever, fostering multi-cul-
tural relationships is crucial
to the progress of our society.
Morocco was one of the more
exotic countries that made the
list. I was also interested in the
fact that it is 98 percent Muslim.
The U.S relationship with the
Muslim world is on shaky grounds
now and I feel like by sharing my
musical journey with the people
of Morocco 1 can do my part to
create unity between two coun-
tries thousands of miles apart
There were really no second
choices. Lean was set on Morocco
first and foremost.
"My life is about making
ideas happen, and I have always
had the desire to help promote
cultural empathy. This scholar-
ship has allowed me to do just
that. Someone once said that

Why it's good to think about
retirement in your 20s
Research shows benefits
of planning for retirement
while young
LEE SCHWARZ
STAFF WRITER
Less than 1 percent of young
workers make the maximum
contribution to 401k plans. Just
25 percent of workers age 18 to 24
have a pension of any kind. The
average American spends $1.01 to
every one dollar they make. Social
Security only pays 40 percent of
pre-retirement earnings. Only 6
percent of workers age 21-30 have
their own annuities. Most people
who are unable to retire cannot
do so because they started saving
for retirement too late. The key
to a comfortable retirement is
a long investment cycle which
allows money to grow and build
over decades. Why don't younger
workers save for retirement early?
Because workers who are not cur-
rently saving for retirement say
that they are either in their first
job, that they are just starting
out or that they are just in school
and think they shouldn't have
to worry about retirement yet.
Workers generally keep putting
off thinking about such things
as it is cumbersome for them
to think about. When asked
what they will do when they are
caught short on money in their
old age, workers reply, "I'll just
work longer In most cases, that
won't cut it.
Howard Kurpit of MetLife
Insurance says, "Many young
workers mistakenly believe that
they can make up for a savings
shortfall today at some yet-to-be-
determined point in the future.
As a result, they forgo the benefit
of a long investment period and
overlook the possibility that they
will be downsized, disabled or
self-employed at some point in
their career. For most employees,
even small contributions to a
401k during the early years can
make a major difference in the
size of the nest egg upon retire-
ment
Financial Planner Gail Buck-
ner says, "Few people will have
exactly the amount of money
they will need in retirement.
Most will get a negative figure, a
gap, when they do the math. But
once you've got this number, at
least you have a sense of the size
of the gap and the steps you need
to take to close it
Nearly 60 percent of younger
workers between ages 21 and
30 anticipate needing at least
20 years of income in post-
retirement, yet two-thirds want
to retire before the age of 60.
According to the 2003 National
Vital Statistics'Reports from the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, the average 60-year-
old American can expect to live
to be 82.3 years old, and the
average 70-year-old American
can expect to live to be 85. How
can someone rationally expect to
retire before 60 yet having saved
less than 20 years of retirement
funds?
Additionally people are living
longer with the advances in med-
ical technology. "The best way to
save for retirement is to diligently
sock away dollars starting with
your very first paycheck and
stopping only once the cham-
pagne is served at your retirement
party says Stephanie AuWerter
of SmartMoney.com. By and large

Joyner Library has the first of
a series of exhibits on display in
the special collections section of
the library commemorating the
upcoming centennial anniver-
sary of ECU.
Titled, "The Founding of an
Institution: East Carolina Teach-
ers Training School, 1907-1921
the exhibit will run through Sep-
tember 15 as a part of the larger
series, "A Century of Education
and Impact: The History of East
Carolina University
Featuring everything from
photos and drawings to blue
prints and artifacts, the exhibit's
centerpieces stem primarily from
university archives.
Comprised in seven different
exhibit cases, visitors can view
the history of how ECU started
as a teacher's training school.
Artifacts in the first case include
a photo of the ground breaking
ceremony that took place July 2,
1908, as well as the ceremonial
cap and gown of founding presi-
dent Robert Wright.
Other exhibit cases include
information and artifacts depict-
ing the life of students with class
photos and pictures of students
around campus as well as photos
of the 1915 basketball team and
the tennis team.
Curated by graduate student
Adrienne Rea, the exhibit takes a
close look at what life was like on
the teaching school campus.
According to Suellyn Lath-
rop, University Archivist, in a
press release issued by the ECU
News Bureau, "The exhibit covers
the earliest era of ECU'S history,
from charter through construc-
tion to educating teachers for
eastern North Carolina
In the release, Lathrop also
offered some history saying,
"Under the watchful eye of
trustee chairman Thomas Jarvis,
the buildings rose while Presi-
dent Robert Wright hired teach-
ers and created a curriculum for
the students. From 1911 to 1921
the school consisted of a prepara-
tory high school and a two year
normal school that produced
approximately 550 teachers in
10 years
The three other exhibits in
the series take a look at ECU'S
evolution from a teacher's school
to an official university.
The exhibit can be found in
the Special Collections Depart-
ment of Joyner Library. The
exhibit is open to everyone from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m Monday through
Friday, and on Saturdays from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m.

Students receive plaques
and monetary awards
Department of Library
Science and Instructional
Technology award only five
KIMBERLY BELLAMY
STAFF WRITER
Five graduate students
received awards during Found-
er's Week at a ceremony held
on March 30 for demonstrating
exceptional work in tfie areas of
library science and instructional
technology.
Gina Firnhaber, Whitney
Rosen, Stephanie Rous, Saman-
tha Blake and Connie Castillo-
Winkler were the five students
who received recognition at the
ceremony.
Some of the general require-
ments to be considered for
these awards included having
a 4.0 GPA in their graduate
studies, at least 18 credit
hours completed and a rec-
ommendation from a faculty
member for work done in the
areas of library science or instruc-
tional technology.
The students were nominated
for the awards under unusual
conditions. All the students
chosen for these awards have
not done any physical work in a
classroom to be noticed by their
professors.
Karen Mathis, office assistant
In the department of library sci-
ence and instructional technol-
ogy, said, "The one thing which
makes our award winners unique
is the fact'that all our programs
are totally online and the faculty
make their recommendations
without ever meeting the stu-
dents face-to-face
A student recognised for
the Emily S. Boyce Fellowship
award had to show commitment
to a potential career in library
administration management and
community leadership.
Firnhaber was chosen for this
award. She received a plaque and
a $500 scholarship. Firnhaber
seemed shocked that she was
recognized for the award.
"I'm really interested in ALA
Accreditation for our Master of
Library Science program and I
suppose my constant questions,
suggestions and presence at any
event relating to this effort are
the culprit Firnhaber said.
Another factor that may have
contributed to Firnhaber being
chosen for the award is her gradu-
ate assistantship at the William E.
Laupus Health Science Library.
The Mildred Daniels South-
wick Award also included a $500
scholarship and a plaque. This
award was given to Whitney
Michelle Rosen.
Rosen exhibited aspirations in
actively pursuing a career in the
area of reference librarianship.
Rosen is currently an employee of
the Durham Academy Preschool
as the Lower School Librarian.
Outstanding Graduate Stu-
dent awards were given in the
areas of MS in Instructional
Technology, MAEd in Instruc-
tional Technology and Masters
in Library Science.
In order, these awards were
earned by Castillo-Winkler, Blake
and Rous. These students received
a plaque and a $100 scholarship
for maintaining enough credit
hours, a good academic record
and demonstrating involvement
in the two concentrations.
Blake and Rous work as teach-
ers in North Carolina while
continuing their efforts to earn
their MAEd and MS in Instruc-
tional Technology. Blake was very
humble about being chosen for

State:
N.C. conservatives say stronger
Identity needed here
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) North Carolina
conservatives say it's time to reclaim
the most Democrat-friendly state in
the South.
Voters for years have favored
Republicans in presidential and U.S.
Senate races here. But it's been nearly
a generation since a Republican
occupied the governor's mansion.
That was former Gov. Jim Martin,
elected in 1988,
The GOP has not fully controlled the
state legislature for a century.
"It is a travesty that North Carolina
is controlled by the Democrats
said U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, R
N.C, on Saturday, the second day
of the N.C. Conservative Leadership
Conference.
The first ever event, which organizers
hope to hold annually, was aimed at
finding ways to better appeal to North
Carolina voters and halt the blue tide
in state government.
It featured guest speakers who
called for a crackdown on illegal
immigration, lower taxes and less
state spending. They also called for
a law making English the official state
language, a constitutional ban on
same-sex marriage, and the end of
taxpayer-funded incentives used to
recruit businesses.
Jack Hawke, a former state GOP
chairman who now leads the Civilas
Institute, a Raleigh-based conservative
group that organized the conference,
said the state Republican Party lacks
a strong identity. That, he argues,
has made it difficult for the many
Republicans from other states that are
moving into fast-growing suburbs.
"There has been a void in leadership
in the conservative movement in
North Carolina, especially since Sen.
Helms retired said former Raleigh
Mayor Tom Fetzer.
"We need a new generation of
conservative leaders to come forward
and accept the mantle
Residents return home after
wildfire forces evacuations
SPIVEY'S CORNER, N.C. (AP)
Residents evacuated from more than
50 homes were allowed to return
Saturday after firefighters contained
a wildfire that burned on about 200
acres in northern Sampson County,
officials said.
Officials said the fire near the Sandy
Ridge Country Club had threatened
the homes and placed occupants in
immediate danger. A day care center
was also evacuated
Firefighters had the blaze 100 percent
contained by late afternoon Saturday,
said Jamie Kritzer, a spokesman for
the N.C. Division of Forest Resources.
No injuries were reported and no
structures were lost, officials said.
Kritzer said crews were still on the
scene Saturday evening, checking
hot spots in the interior of the burned
area.
The fire was started Monday by a
local resident burning brush, Kritzer
said. The fire had been contained,
but firefighters were checking on it
because of the prevailing windy and
dry conditions, he said, and the fire
again became a problem Friday.
About 175 firefighters along with a
forestry airplane and helicopter were
involved in fighting the blaze, Kritzer
said.
Kritzer said the rain that parts of the
state received Saturday wouldn't
make much difference to the wildfire
threat.
"Quite frankly I wish we'd had a lot
more. This cou.d prove to be a bad
fire day on Sunday he said. "We're
just really urging people to hold off
on burning at this time
Wednesday, three fires spread across
woods in Cumberland and Sampson
counties, while two-dozen brush fires
were scattered across western North
Carolina.

Survivors pick the pieces after
Tennessee storms that killed 12
GALLATIN,Tenn.(AP) Diesel smoke
filled the air as work crews used heavy
equipment to clear paths through
tornado-strewn debris and victims
rummaged for mementos in the
remains of their neighborhoods.
Clumps of yellow insulation hung
from trees like Spanish moss, and
the sound of helicopters, chain saws
and trucks created a loud, steady
rumble.
Among those searching for
keepsakes in the rubble Saturday,
Jenny Tuck carried a cedar chest and
a photograph. "I found an old picture
of my mother she said, holding up
the dirty silver frame.

one of his coworkers was killed.
Nashville Electrical Service reported
hundreds of electrical lines down and
power outages affecting up to 16,000

About 1,000 customers remained

Candidates for New Orleans
mayor seek support from
hurricane evacuees
HOUSTON (AP) Seven candidates
vying to be the next mayor of New
Orleans sought support from
displaced voters Saturday, two weeks
before the election to decide who
will guide the city through its long
recovery from Hurricane Katrina.
The candidates fielded questions
about rebuilding in a forum from
New Orleans that was broadcast
to evacuees in Houston, Dallas,
San Antonio and Austin, as well as
Shreveport, La and Baton Rouge,
La.
Mayor Ray Nagin, who is seeking a
second term, reminded the audience
that the April 22 primary comes just
weeks before the start of the next
hurricane season.
"Do you want experienced leadership
that is tried and tested? Or do you
want to experiment at this important
time in our city's history?" he asked,
drawing applause and cheers in
Houston, where about 100 evacuees
watched from an auditorium at Texas
Southern University.
Evacuees pushed the candidates for
answers to questions about restoring
basic services, such as electricity and
trash pickup.
"I cannot lie to you and tell you
every single service in every single
neighborhood is going to come
back immediately said candidate
Ron Forman, an executive credited
with turning New Orleans' zoo into a
national showcase.
Other candidates agreed.
"If I said yes, it would be an empty
promise said the Rev. Tom Watson,
a politically influential minister who is
also running for mayor.
If no candidate gets a majority of the
votes in the nonpartisan primary, the
top two finishers will compete in a
May 20 runoff election.
Thomas Wells, who evacuated to
Houston after the storm but returned
to New Orleans for the forum, said he
was frustrated with the city's appeals
for residents to come home.
"I am very angry with the statement,
'come back home To what?" he
asked, complaining his wife has
to get dressed each morning out
of the trunk of the family's car. "We
are a family with dignity, and that is
unacceptable

Defying curfew, thousands
protest against king in Nepal
KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) Thousands
of emboldened protesters defied
curfews in Nepal on Sunday, clashing
with police on the fourth day of
increasingly violent demonstrations
to demand a return to democracy in
Himalayan kingdom.
The protests came despite the
royal government's threat to shoot
anyone breaking the curfew, imposed
Saturday amid a general strike to
pressure King Gyanendra to give up
absolute rule. At least two protesters
have been killed in clashes.
Police fired tear gas at stone throwing
youths in Nepal's capital Sunday,
where at least 1,000 people
assembled in one neighborhood,
said a witness who declined to be
named for fear of police reprisal.
Police also fired rubber bullets, Private
Kantipur Television reported, showing
footage that included at least one
injured protester.
At the time, he said the move was
needed to bring order to a chaotic
and corrupt political scene and to
end a communist insurgency that
has killed nearly 13,000 people in the
past decade.
Many Nepalis at first welcomed the
king's move. But the insurgency since
has worsened and the economy has
faltered, fueling the discontent that
has been on display in recent days as
thousands of workers, professionals
and business people have for the
first time joined students and political
activists at protests.
Apart from Saturday's shootings,
the government has arrested more
than 800 people since Wednesday.
Police were seen Saturday detaining
another 20 rights activists for defying
the curfew.
For the first time, the parties' protest
has the backing of the communist
rebels, with whom they formed a
loose alliance in December.
Roadside bombs hit central
Iraq; U.S. troops kill suspected
insurgents on anniversary of fall
of Baghdad
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) Five roadside
bombs killed at least three people
in Iraq on Sunday, the three-year
anniversary of the Baghdad's fall to
U.S. forces. Iraq police and soldiers
bolstered security in the capital to
prevent attacks on "Freedom Day
The holiday marks the April 9, 2003
event in which a huge crowd of Iraqis
cheered as U.S. Marines hauled down
the statue of Saddam Hussein on
Firdous Square, marking the collapse
of his regime.
Most Iraqis welcomed the end of
Saddam's regime, but the insurgency,
militias, rising sectarian violence,
electricity shortages and political
vacuum have all sapped much of
the enthusiasm generated by the
collapse of dictatorship.
"Iraqis are pleased and displeased
said Qassim Hassan, a soldier. They
are pleased because they got rid of
tyranny and dictatorship, but they
are displeased because they went
from bad to worse. The Iraqi street
is seething between sadness and
terrorism
Even U.S. officials acknowledged
the mixed nature of the Iraq war's
current stage.
"Despite much progress, much work
remains U.S. Ambassador Zalmay
Khalilzad and Gen. George W. Casey,
Jr said in a joint statement.
"The legitimate security forces must
quell sectarian violence. Population
centers must be secure to allow
Iraq's new institutions to take root
and businesses to flourish. Finally,
the people must be able to trust their
leadership
The "Freedom Day" holiday appeared
to draw little public attention. The Iraqi
Islamic Party, a the biggest Sunni
party, issued a statement rejecting the
day, saying it was "an anniversary of
occupying Iraq, not liberating it
But some Iraqis embraced the
memory of Hussein's statue coming
to the ground.
"This is a dear day, we got rid of
the dictatorship said Fadhil
Abul Sebah. "It doesn't mark the
fall of Baghdad, it marks the fall of
Saddam and the regime, because
Baghdad will never fall

Use iPods carefully to
avoid damaging hearing
(KRT) IntheageoftheiPod,
where the music never stops, how
can users of personal stereos
ensure their ears don't give out?
By turning down the volume,
taking breaks from listening
or using noise-canceling ear-
phones, according to the Ameri-
can Speech-Language Hearing
Association.
And as of last week, those
who have Nano or video-capable
iPods can download software that
limits the top volume of the units.
The electronic units usually
are packaged with "ear buds
earphones that insert into the
outer ear. Unfortunately, they
often let in outside, or ambient,
noise, making it harder to hear
what's playing. That, in turn,
may encourage the listener to
pump up the volume.
Although the unregulated
volume of Apple Computer Incs
iPods can reach more than 115
decibels, 85 decibels is the "line
of demarcation says Pam Mason,
the association's director of profes-
sional audiology practices. At that
level, listeners can use the units
continuously for eight hours.
For each increase of 5 deci-
bels, users should cut listening
time in half, Mason says. So, if
you were listening at 90 deci-
bels, "you'd wear them for four
hours If you're listening at 120
decibels, you would tune in for
only five to 10 minutes before
taking a break.
Taking a break from loud
noises is very important, Mason
says. "Our ears have natural resil-
iency built into them. After a loud
concert, your ears are ringing and
sounds are muffled. But in the
morning, you don't have those
symptoms. Those are temporary
effects of excessive noise, and
you do recover your hearing But
"continual exposure is going to
lead to a permanent hearing loss
Few listeners, however, will
be able to determine where 85
decibels is on the volume dial.
Mason uses a "three-foot rule" as
a guide: If you're standing three
feet from someone listening to
a personal stereo and you can
hear what's playing, the music is
too loud. If you're listening to a
music player and you can't hear
someone three feet away speak-
ing to you, lower the volume.
Using noise-canceling ear-
phones and ear buds that elec-
tronically filter ambient noise
can help keep volume lower, she
says. "It's easier to self-regulate
the volume when you have
earphones that isolate what you
want to hear from what you
don't want to hear she says.
Such devices are available from a
variety of manufacturers. Prices
range from about $40 to $300.
In a recent survey for the
association, both adults and
teens reported hearing prob-
lems that could be linked to
the increased use of personal
stereos. The trend is particularly
alarming in children, Mason
says. "Even mild, minor hearing
loss can have a devastating effect
on academic achievement and
social development
Film about United 93 raises questions
about timing, purpose and 911 attacks
(KRT) As the passengers
on the plane huddle in their
seats and decide what to do,
the ominous music builds to
a climax. Following images of
a plane about to hit the World
Trade Center and of a hijacker
who appears to be wearing a belt
of explosives, words flash across
the screen.
"On the day we faced fear

says, "we also found courage
Less than five years after the
Sept. 11 attacks, Hollywood is
about to unveil its first attempt
to make sense of, and a profit
from, the worst terrorist assault
in U.S. history.
Although the movie, "United
93 will not open until April 25,
it has already provoked strong
negative reactions in at least two
instances.
A movie theater on New
York's Upper West Side pulled
the trailer after complaints from
audience members, including a
woman who burst into tears. And
at Grauman's Chinese Theater in
Hollywood, the trailer provoked
audience cries of "Too soon
With other Sept. 11 movies
to follow "United 93 including
an Oliver Stone film set in the
rubble of the World Trade Center,
questions of timing and purpose
seem especially pressing.
Is it too soon for the movies
to depict the defining event of a
young century, a day on which
nearly 3,000 people were killed?
And what role do films that
portray catastrophic historic
events such as wars or assassina-
tions play in a society's group
psyche?
"United 93" tells the story
of the 40 passengers and crew
members aboard one of the four
hijacked planes. From phone
calls to family members on the
ground, the plane's occupants
knew that three other planes
had already been crashed into
the World Trade Center and the
Pentagon.
With the hijacked plane
heading to Washington, pas-
sengers apparently rushed the
cockpit, and in the ensuing
struggle, the plane crashed in a
Pennsylvania field. All aboard
were killed.
The cockpit voice recording
from the last 30 minutes of the
flight, which family members
have said includes the sounds
of a struggle, is to be played in
federal court at the death-pen-
alty trial of Zacarias Moussaoui,
whom a jury determined last
week withheld information
that could have prevented the
attacks.
Universal Studios, which
is distributing "United 93
emphasizes in its prerelease pub-
licity that British director Paul
Greengrass received approval
for making the $15 million film
from every victim's family.
"1 don't think you ever know
when is the right time to make
a film like this Greengrass,
director of the thriller "The
Bourne Supremacy" and "Bloody
Sunday says in a "making of the
movie" featurette that is being
shown in some theaters in place
of the trailer. "And that's why
you have to start by asking the
families. They clearly feel that

Gordon Felt, whose brother
Edward was a passenger on the
plane, was impressed by the
filmmakers' dedication to an
accurate rendering of the day's
events, down to asking whether
his brother would have been
drinking coffee or tea on his way
to the airport.
"I don't think it's too soon
Felt said. "It's never too soon to
remember the horrible crime
that was committed against our
country. We need to remember
and not let our guard down. And
we need to memorialize some
extremely brave citizens who

Farewell ECU and TEC
It's that time of year. Students are cramming in
those pesky last-minute assignments. Seniors
all over campus are filled with excitement and
perhaps a bit of anxiety - and I'm one of those
seniors. This is it, this is my last semester, my
last round of painful exams and my last mast-
head.
Four years ago when my college adventure
began, I was almost certain graduation day
would be one of the happiest days of my life.
Now that graduation day is nearly here, I must
be honest and admit that while I am happy,
there is a part of me that is sad. There is no
need to lie. Leaving behind the long nights of
homework and studying for exams will not
be a part of my life I will miss. I will, however,
miss college. I will miss the people I've met
in my time at ECU. I'll miss the opportunities,
both academically and personally, that have
been given to me while I have been at ECU.
And while those late-night study sessions with
classmates were annoying and tiring, I realize
in retrospect that there were few times when

just how much of ECU I will miss.
I could have used my last masthead to voice
my opinion about current events or what I think
about happenings around campus. Instead, I
would like to use this as my opportunity to thank
the people who have made the last four years of
my life memorable. To the professors who made
my life a nightmare at times, yet still managed to
teach me lessons both personally and profes-
sionally - thank you. To my co-workers at TEC
- thank you. And finally, to ECU - despite the
occasional frustration and chaos you brought
into my life, thank you for a lifetime of memories.
You'll be greatly missed.

Baseball season is in full-
swing once again. Take a deep
breath - no, I'm not going to be so
cliche to write that you can prob-
ably smell the pine tar, freshly cut
grass or something lame like that.
I'm saying that if you breathe in
hard enough, you'll probably
smell me because, to be honest,
since baseball season started up
last week, my personal hygiene
has taken a backseat to tracking
my fantasy baseball squad (the
Drowning Bears) and listening to
every game as humanly possible
live via XM Satellite Radio.
Spending most of my life
between Virginia and North
Carolina, I don't have a local
team that I can follow. Sure,
1 root for certain teams over
others but because I don't have
that tie to any one team, it's
strangely unfulfilling. So you
could imagine how happy I was
when the Montreal Expos were
transplanted to Washington,
DC and dubbed the "Nationals
After all, I'm from the area and
- even better - the team actually
had a great season last year.
Finally, 1 had a local team -
only after what I saw on Wednes-
day evening, I've begun ques-
tioning whether I want to asso-
ciate myself with the team - and
especially other Nationals fans
- at all. Allow me to explain.
On Wednesday evening, the
Nationals had their home opener
at the dilapidated RFK Stadium.
To throw out the ceremonial
opening pitch, they scored a
coup - somehow they were able
to convince an army of cardiolo-
gists to let Vice President Dick
Cheney have the honor. If you're
a regular reader of mine, you may
have figured out that I'm not
the biggest Cheney fan in the
country, but even I was shocked
at the response he received from
the crowd.
To say that he was booed
would be a gross understatement
- he was verbally mauled by the
DC crowd. Because I could only
hear that game, I began hypoth-
esizing what Cheney could have
done to elicit such a response.
The only explanation that 1
could think of was that while
walking to the mound, Cheney
pulled the hat off of a kid with
leukemia and laughed, spit in his
face and then kicked a puppy.
That's how vile the sentiment
was. Sadly, though, Dick Cheney
was booed simply because he was
Dick Cheney.
Admittedly, I've taken quite a
few jabs at the vice president - 1
believe at one point I even com-
pared him to Aaron Burr, who'
murdered the greatest statesman
this country has ever seen. But
this was too much. Not only was
this embarrassing for the greater
D.C. area - it was embarrassing
for the country as a whole.
Whether you like Vice Presi-
dent Cheney or not - and I can't
reiterate enough that I don't
care for the man - to boo him so
fervently as he partakes in the
pre-game festivities of your local
baseball club is classless. If you
can't respect the man, at least
respect the office.
At a time when a show of
strength and unity across the
nation is vital to our success
across the world, just imagine
how this country must look to the
other countries around the world.
I can assure you that somewhere,
there is a French man watching
and laughing at us as they run the
clip of Vice President Cheney jog-
ging back and forth to the pitch-
ing mound, trying his hardest to
ignore the crowd. To our allies, it
shows that we lack the solidarity
to lead. To our enemies, it shows
a weakness to exploit and makes
us look like a joke.
On a much larger scale,
though, the American system
has been built around our rep-
resentative elections and the
way we're able to have peaceful
exchanges of power. The public
can fight until their faces turn
blue during the election, but
when the decision is made, the
people rally behind the winner
and trust in them to lead the
United States in the right way.
When trust is broken, the power
of that official is subverted and
the country is weakened. If
pushed to the extreme, it can lead
to anarchy.
Personally, if I were to meet
Vice President Cheney or Presi-
dent Bush, I would have no prob-
lem shaking their hand, despite
my problems with their stance on
certain social and international
affairs. It's a certain level of civil-
ity missing from the mongrels
at RKF Stadium on Wednesday
night. In the meantime, I'll con-
tinue writing organized critiques
of their work in this column. If
the crowd had taken the energy
to voice their specific opinions in
the form of a letter to the man,
that would have been great.
But to hide under the guise of
a group mentality and ignorantly
scream your disapproval, that
accomplishes nothing and only
hurts the country.

In My Opinion
(KRT) At this time of year,
a lot of us are busy getting our
taxes done, making sure we iden-
tify all the deductions for which
we're qualified.
One additional deduction I've
been working to get into the U.S.
tax code is a credit for the purchase
of gun safes, which have proved
to be the most effective way to
prevent firearms accidents.
With firearms found in so
many homes, it is imperative that
we encourage their proper stor-
age. Otherwise the consequences
can be tragic. Earlier this year in
Cermantown, Md an 8-year-old
boy with easy access to a gun at
home shot a 7-year-old girl in
the arm. School shootings in a
host of other American cities are
a sad legacy that we must leave
behind us.
The right to bear firearms
helps individuals guarantee their
personal safety, the welfare of
their families, and the integrity
of their homes. It is among
Americans' most cherished con-
stitutional rights. Yet, as tragic-
events like this one occasionally
remind us, access to unattended
firearms by an intruder or a child
can endanger the very people
this right seeks to protect.
So 1 have introduced the
Child Protection and Home
Safety Act of 2005. This biparti-
san bill promotes the safe storage
of firearms by providing a 25
percent tax credit toward the
purchase of a gun safe.
Cun-related tragedies have
promoted heavy-handed man-
dates requiring intrusive govern-
ment regulation, which - while
well-intentioned - are frequently
ineffective. Even a child with
a screwdriver can clumsily dis-
mantle a trigger lock. And a
simple wire-cutter can cut right
through a cable lock.
Responsible gun owners
deserve sensible options, like
safes, to prevent unauthorized
access to their firearms. Safely
securing firearms within a per-
son's home is a fundamental way
to help ensure that they do not
become a threat to the families
who buy them for protection.
This important legislation
will also put up roadblocks to sui-
cide and violent crime. Criminals
frequently use guns they steal
from the homes of law-abiding
Americans, or turn around and
sell them on the Black Market.
The Department of Justice
reported that, from a sample of
juvenile inmates in four states,
more than 50 percent had stolen
a gun at least once in their lives
and 24 percent had stolen their
most recently obtained handgun.
Nearly 10 percent of state prison
inmates incarcerated on gun
crimes say the weapons they used
were stolen.
By encouraging the purchase
and use of gun safes, the Child
Protection and Home Safety
Act will significantly reduce
the rate of accidents, suicides
and gun theft, thereby reducing
homicides and violent crimes.
And by means of a tax credit, we
can encourage gun safety while
preserving Second Amendment
liberties. This bill encourages,
rather than dictates, an impor-
tant safety initiative.
A companion bill has been
introduced in the House. We
need to move these bills forward
as rapidly as possible to ensure
that Americans have the means
needed to provide safe storage of
their firearms.
The right to bear arms keeps
families safe. And a safe is the
best place to keep guns. I recom-
mend all gun owners buy one
as soon as possible, and save a j
receipt for their taxes next year.
To the person who ranted about not getting the posi-
tion, sorry but I was in on your interview, and if you
didn't half ass your interview you may have gotten
the position. You had friends in on your interview
I too; so don't even use that as an excuse. P.S. - That
attitude won't get you anywhere in life.
I love going to class when we all know each other!

OK, for all of you who feel that it is unfair for
Teaching Fellows to be able to travel and get perks
on campus, get over it. We do not get a full ride
through college, and we do a lot of things to make
up for our trips and the perks. Why don't you go
work concessions, do seminars, work on committees
and answer to people's beckon call, then you come
to me and tell me that we don't deserve the perks
and it is unfair!
Oh my look here that guy is wearing khaki
cargo shorts, a fitted graphic T-shirt and rainbows!
But he's black! Yeah people, my race doesn't force
me into a certain style stop commenting on it,
stop staring me down. And no, I am not the only
black guy who wears rainbows!
I eagerly await all of the wannabe Carrie Bradshaw,
sex and relationships columns that they write in
TEC every week. And I'm a guy.
Thank you TC for acknowledging the existence of
the Flying Spaghetti Monster! It's more than just
a game though. It's a God, a religion, a scientific
movement and a tasty dinner!
I hate Facebook, why am I addicted?
Yay for sunshine and melanoma, I love Southern
summers.
Is anyone else in a class that assigns a boatload of
work, which makes you ignore the work for your
other classes? I know that I am here for an educa-
tion, and I realize that this desired education comes
along with doing work. But, when a quiz is like a
midterm, something needs to change!

You know, when someone smiles at you, or says,

Girls like to sleep next to the wall so that if the guy

there are issues here, but hey, every college has them.
Now that we know they exist, let's work on correct-
ing them. ECU is our university - don't just com-
plain! Let's take action and make it a place you love!

Sharpies rule the universe. Sometimes I draw on my
feet just to use them.
1 think the people of Greenville should retake their
behind the wheel class so they know that bicyclists
have the same rights to the road as they do! Yield!
To understand the racial divide on campus all you have
to do is state that the Black Student Union is not needed!
I could understand this statement if the group excluded
others, or even if they taught race supremacy. If you were
to attend a BSU meeting you would know that it is not
anything like that. Black Student Union is a group of
students who try to help create a sense of community,
which doesn't exist. It also does a lot of needed volunteer
work for the community and gets involved with the
campus. Grow up, open your eyes, and don't be ignorant.

Who cares that you don't like the rants? That's
the definition of ranting going on and on about
random stuff that might only be important to you.
My roommate watches the stupidest shows on

Ew, my iPod won't charge.
You told me that you were feeling me after coming
over one time, then you never came back. Why lie if
you weren't feeling me like that? What a jerk, grow
up and be a man.
ECU, how about you lower the rates for out-of-state
students? It's not like you're such a prestigious
school or anything!
You may be morally against text messaging but
I am morally against hearing your whole phone
conversation during class!

tate today on your peace of mind.

which we end our lives
Other Sept. 11 families have generally
been supportive as well.
Bill Doyle, whose son Joseph died at
the trade center and who stays in touch
with a wide swath of the Sept. 11 com-
munity, said he has heard only a few
complaints from family members who
were caught off guard by the trailer,
which includes real video of the second
plane about to strike the south tower of
the trade center.
But such images also have been back
in the news because of the Moussaoui
trial, he noted.
"I think the 911 families are so used
to seeing those planes hit the buildings
Doyle said. "I don't think the objections
are so much from the 911 families as from
those who didn't suffer a loss
Comments on Entertainment Weekly's
PopWatch blog were about evenly split
regarding "United 93 Several echoed Felt's
positive comments, while others expressed
reservations about a movie that could make
money from a national tragedy.
"The trailer was really disturbing and
made me uncomfortable commented
"ScriptGrrl who apparently watched
a streaming version of the trailer at the
movie's Web site, www.united93movle.
com. "I had to look away three times
during the stream. 1 can't imagine sitting
through two hours of that and probably
won't go to see the film
Universal has said that the trailer will
be shown only before R-rated or "grown-
up" PG-13 movies. Last week, the movie
received an R rating for language and
"some intense sequences of terror and
violence
"United 93" will open this year's
Tribeca Film Festival, which was started in
2002 by actor Robert De Niro and others
as a way to revitalize lower Manhattan
after the terrorist attacks.
The movie opens nationwide April
28, with Universal donating 10 percent
of the first weekend's box-office receipts
toward the construction of the Flight 93
memorial in Pennsylvania.
Although "United 93" will be Holly-
wood's first Sept. 11 story, other art forms
and media have already dealt with the
terrorist attack. Television shows such
as "Third Watch" and "The West Wing"
touched either directly or obliquely on the
attack in fall 2001, and Bruce Springsteen
released his Sept. 11 album "The Rising"
in summer 2002.
In January, the Arts and Entertainment
cable network aired a TV movie about
Flight 93, attracting 5.9 millipn viewers,
the channel's highest-rated show.
And the New York Philharmonic
orchestra performed the debut of com-
poser John Adams' "On the Transmigra-
tion of Souls" during the first-anniversary
observances in 2002.
Sept. 11 has also figured in novels as
varied as the cyberspace thriller "Patterrt
Recognition" by William Gibson and the
contemporary love story "The Good Life"
by Jay Mclnerney.
If anything, several film and popular
culture experts said, it's surprising that
Hollywood has waited this long.
"Coming Home" and "Apocalypse
Now two of the first big post-Vietnam
War movies, came out within four years of
the North Vietnamese victory in 1975.
Those movies "were articulating issues
that were very fresh said screenwriter
Ted Braun, who teaches at the University
of South California's School of Cinema-
Television.
And the pace of contemporary culture
has only accelerated since then.
"For some people, it's never going to
be time for this event to be the subject of a
movie said Syracuse University professor
Robert Thompson, a specialist in popular
culture. "But that doesn't mean, 1 think,
that we as a culture reduce ourselves to
silence about it. You've got to expect that
if storytelling is about contemporary soci-
ety, and that society has had an event that
comes to define the times, of course art is
going to have to process it
Movies about painful chapters in
American life "help people empathize
and open up a dialogue on things that
are deeply felt, but also deeply covered
said Yale University sociologist Ronald
Eyerman. "Crying may be necessary,
anger as well
That's because historical accounts of
such events as Pearl Harbor, the Holocaust
or Sept. 11 may provide the facts, but film
puts faces on those calamities.
"By bringing us into the feelings and
most importantly the actions of these char-
acters, it's allowing us to understand what
happened Braun said. "It can articulate
or make sense of an historical experience
and do it through the emotions

those who start earlier only have
to save away about 15 percent of
their pretax dollars as opposed
to their older counterparts who
must save 25 percent or more of
their pretax salary in order to
have some comparable standard
of living in retirement as they
did in their working days. For
most people, expenses rise in
their 40s and 50s. Expenses like
their kid's college tuition and
wedding ceremonies for their
daughters put an unbelievable
squeeze on a people's cash flow.
These are just some of the con-

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
14 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 12 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon dark rum
4 fresh cherries, halved
Melt four tablespoons of the butter in a
10-inch cast iron skillet, over medium
heat. Add the brown sugar and stir
to combine. Increase the heat to
medium high and cook until the sugar
mixture is bubbly, about two minutes.
Arrange pineapple slices in the skillet
In a pleasing pattern and continue
to cook for two minutes, or until the
sugar mixture turns an amber color.
Turn the pineapple slices over and
remove the pan from the heat. (The
mixture will continue to cook even
though the heat is off.) Arrange the
pecan halves in the spaces between
the rings. Set aside to cool slightly.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Stir together the flours, baking powder,
baking soda, and salt in a medium
mixing bowl. In the bowl of an electric
mixer, cream together the remaining
12 cup butter and the granulated
sugar until light and fluffy. Add the
eggs, one at a time, mixing just until
incorporated. Add the flour mixture
and buttermilk alternately in three
batches, mixing at low speed after
each addition until just combined. Stir
in the vanilla and rum.
Spoon the batter evenly over the
pineapple slices in the skillet. Bake
in the middle of the oven until
golden brown and a tester comes
out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

Put this movie on the bench
Benchwarmers won't
make the All-Star Team
SCOTTY WILLIAMS
SENIOR WRITER
Being funny is a subtle art
form that takes a lot of practice
to be good. Even if your routine
just hits on things that you
already know people will laugh
at, there's still so much to worry
about - the delivery, the timing
and the follow-up. These things
make being funny so difficult.
What's even harder is original
humor, when a comedian or
an actor makes you realize that
something you've never even
considered before is side-split-
tingly hilarious. George Carlin
has to be the master of this,
because every time you hear a
Carlin routine you will realize
things that you never pondered
are actually pretty clever.
Anyway, there are really two
kinds of comedies: those that try
to experiment with things we
find funny and find new things
that are funny, and comedies that
are a parade of the generic funny
stuff. Benchwarmers is that parade
of generic funny. While some
parts of the movie will make
you laugh, only a small part of
the movie will be genuinely dis-
covered funny, and most of them
will be the kind of laugh where
you realize, "oh, this is supposed
to be making me laugh
The plot of the movie is
heartwarming and makes a lot
of people cheer. A group of three
older guys decides to avenge the
Jon Heder, Rob Schneider and David Spade play the misfit nerds on their own three-man Softball team.
constant mistreatment of nerds
and outcasts on the athletic fields
by forming their own three-man
Softball team to challenge little
league players. In the name of the
little guy, Gus (Rob Schneider),
Richie (David Spade) and Clark
(Jon Heder of Napoleon Dynamite)
take on all comers in a round-
robin tournament to put the big,
bad jocks in their place.
Benchwarmers met with a
lukewarm response from this
reviewer. The movie's casting
seems a little off, first of all.
While Rob Schneider genuinely
works in this film as a loveable
good guy who stands up for the
little guy, his other two pals
just don't fit. It seems to me the
only reason Jon Heder was in
this movie was because director
Dennis Dugan thought it would
be funny to see Napoleon Dyna-
mite playing baseball. Honestly,
for most of the movie, I thought
it was Napoleon Dynamite (inter-
esting fact here, Heder made only
$ 1,000 for his role in that movie).
If you want to see something
interesting, watch Heder's role
in Just Like Heaven. You'll see
a coherent actor, and not the
deer-in-the-headlights kid he's
typecast to be.
Another out-of-place actor
is David Spade. Spade actually
has a lot of humor in him when
it comes to person-to-person
interaction. When playing off of
someone else (especially where
insults and one-ups are con-
cerned), Spade is genius and
nearly everything he says is
funny. The problem .with his
style is that it doesn't fit with this
movie. The character he plays
is somewhat socially inept and
isn't particularly well equipped
to drop bombs on characters. If
you want to see Spade at his best,
check him out with the late Chris
Farley in Tommy Boy. The two of
them together was a beautiful
pairing because Farley's ridicu-
lously stupid character spent
most of the movie being torn to
bits by Spade's sarcastic sidekick
character and didn't even notice
it most of the time. The two of
them had amazing dynamics.
Spade's dynamics here seem
tied up because he has to be this
social leper.
One thing I like about the
movie is that the overall mes-
sage of the movie is great and it's

'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' controversial book situation
Legal battle between Holy Blood, Holy Grail and Da Vinci Code.
Thought provoking but
hardly an easy read
TOMEKA STEELE
SENIOR WRITER
Holy Blood, Holy Grail was
written by a team of researchers
including Michael Baigent, Rich-
ard Leigh and Henry Lincoln.
This book first hit the shelves in
the early 1980s and it has been
one of the most controversial
books since.
The concept of Holy Blood,
Holy Grail is to dig into the life of
Christ. Based on research done by
Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln, the
book proposes the theory that
Christ did not die on the cross
and that he possibly married
Mary Magdalene and fathered
children. The theory goes on to
conclude that the bloodline of
Christ could possibly still exist
today through his children. His
children could have then married
into the general population creat-
ing the "Merovingian" dynasty
or royal bloodline.
The information in the
novel was compounded by the
authors for over 10 years and is
very compelling. It deals mostly
with France's history as well as
the mystery surrounding the
infamous "Knights Templar" and
a secret society called "Prieure
de Sion" whose mission was to
reinstate the descendants of
Christ (Merovingians) into
political positions.
Holy Blood, Holy Grail has been
in the spotlight not only because
of its controversial theory but
also because of famous author
Dan Brown who wrote the best
sellers Angels and Demons and The
Da Vinci Code.
Authors Leigh and Baigent
are in the process of suing Dan
Brown for apparently lifting their
research and theory that Jesus
married Mary Magdalene and
had children and using it as a
premise in the best seller The Da
Vinci Code, which is now being
made into a big budget movie
that will be released May 19.
This novel was very interest-
ing and exciting to read. It had

heating up the summer
Debut album packs a
strong punch
SARAH CAMPBELL
SENIOR WRITER
After several months of lis-
tening to albums that turned
out to be both unfulfilling and
bland, I have finally found a
group that I deem i Pod-worthy.
Let me explain.
The phrase i Pod-worthy means
that I have found an album that I
can listen to over and over again,
nonstop, without getting bored.
Now that I've got your atten-
tion, you're probably wondering
who I'm talking about so I won't
hold out on you any longer. The
winner of my highest musical
honor is the band, Men, Women
& Children, and their self-titled
debut album.
OK, I have to admit that when
I first picked up this album to
begin writing this review, the
band name Itself screamed "vil-
lage people and I was already
thinking, "what have I gotten
myself into?" But, luckily, I was
pleasantly surprised.
While listening to the first
song, "Dance in my Blood I
literally couldn't stop tapping
my feet. As I kept listening I
realized that the whole album
was filled with beats that are
reminiscent of techno music
and lyrics so catchy that they
stuck in my head for days later.
This album allowed me to
let my guard down and before
I knew it, I was singing along
to the chorus and dancing like
Kristen Dunst in that infamous
pom pom scene from Bring it
On, and believe me, this doesn't
happened often.
In a recent press release
bassist Rick Penzone described
the band's ultimate goal when
making the album as, "making
something that was fun-some-
thing that when you walk into
it, you can forget about your own

Listen up all of you hip-
pies, metal heads and emo kids.
Summer is fast approaching and
that means one thing - it is time
to start scraping together that
spare cash from your part time
job for those concert tickets.
Make sure you can get a
group of people to go so every-
one can split gas money, which
is getting more and more expen-
sive by the day. Besides, no one
wants to attend a festival alone.
There is a big problem,
though. Now that you are get-
ting out of Greenville for a few
precious months, you have to
know which city to descend
upon next. Never fear, TEC has
a few potential locations to get
your summer plans started.

THE EAST CAROUNIAN FEATURES
Donald Fagen's 'Morph the Cat' album
Bench
from page B1
More smooth 1970's
sounds perhaps?
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
Welcome, one and all, to
the latest installment of the CD
review machine know as Bor-
rego. A blast from the past has
made its way to the top of the
chosen articles pile.
The coupling facts that I
can't read and I have no more
original ideas have all but sealed
this one's probability of being
cast upon society. So bear with
me on this one, it was hard to
complete.
Being that Mr. Fagen is one
of the co-leader's from 1970's
jazz rock band, Steele Dan, I was
pretty stoked to be reviewing the
album Morph the Cat. I learned
that he was in Steele Dan and
this was his third solo effort
to be released. His other two
solo albums were The Nightfly
(1982) and Kamakiriad (1993).
I was a big fan of Steele Dan's
music from the classic rock age
and was hoping for more of
that magic. However, Mr. Fagen
had ideas of his own when he
released this 53-minute suck
fest.
The dilemma he was facing
at sometime had to read like this,
"How long does a piece of crap
have to be in order to potentially
cause the entire music industry
to suddenly decline into chaos
thereby creating an alternate
universe devoid of any expres-
sion of sound because the deafen-
ing of every ear exposed to this
malicious audio was so thor-
ough?"
Apparently, 52 minutes and
53 seconds is what he and his
band thinks. I just couldn't
believe that this guy made an
entire album of 1970's elevator
m music. I know elevator music
s is burning up the charts and
g everything, but seriously, he
a could have thought of some-
thing better. Thirteen years and
holding my ears hostage is all he
came up with?
I will say that the music itself
is very reminiscent of the early
Earth, Wind and Fire soul move-
ment and very nice to listen to.
These songs are sung by Fagen
who lacks any kind of song writ-
ing ability. I have heard more
meaningful and better written
songs by Mr. Rogers and Big
Bird. No diss though, they be
my peeps!
The choice of instruments
was interesting and quite varied.
I do believe I heard a xylophone
and outdoor wind chimes some-
where in these six-minute songs.
A line of horns was also used to
emphasize the funk sounding
elements of a few songs.
Truly the music is not that
bad, it is just too hard to listen
to for an hour without wanting
to wear bell bottoms or go do
the hustle. I honestly do think I
have heard a few of these songs
in elevators, which is kind of
funny.
However, every song sounds
the same and as always without
any varietystand out songs,
albums are sure to be overlooked.
The Album gets a B- because
I dig the funk sound backed
by soul singers. However, I do
believe Fagen should stick to
playing with Steele Dan and not
sing, preferably forever. I think
I have heard better voices from
cats in heat, not to mention, less
labored.
Maybe there is a reason this
guy doesn't put out albums but
once a decade, he is trying to
save mankind from the horror
of listening to his music.
He can't do it by himself
though, we need to step in and
help. I propose that we make
him a mute, bury our heads in
the sea, wear big earmuffs or
destroy the distributing com-
pany that releasing this travesty
on March 14. Drop me a line
if there are any good raprock
albums you think are worth
reviewing.

Los Angeles: Where to go to be discovered
LA is home to major
record companies as
well as indie scene
MARK ROMANO
STAFF WRITER
Seeing as how Los Angeles is
the entertainment capitol of the
world, it shouldn't be surprising
how important the city's music
trends are to the rest of the world.
L.A. is popular music central,
where all of the biggest acts are
either represented or got their
start. Some of the biggest names
in the recording business make
L.A. their headquarters, includ-
ing Capitol (Radiohead, Beastie
Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers),
g Atlantic (Led Zeppelin, James
Blunt, Juvenile), Geffen (Weezer,
Mary J. Blige, Rob Zombie), Mata-
dor (Interpol, Cat Power, Spoon),
Warner Brothers (Eric Clapton,
Madonna, The Flaming Lips) and
Virgin (Smashing Pumpkins, The
Rolling Stones, Daft Punk).
L.As music scene is money
driven, and is rivaled only by
New York as the city where you
would need to go to make it to
the big-time. As a result, a culture
of independent music arose on
Sunset Boulevard, better known
as Sunset Strip. Unsigned musi-
cians looked to score a record deal
from the big shots that drove by
from Hollywood to their homes
in Beverly Hills. The bands also
created extravagant signs to
advertise gigs at various rock
clubs such as The House of Blues,
Whiskey A Go-Go and the ulti-
mate club for any unsigned band
to play at - The Viper Room.
Many bands got their start in
L.A including The Doors, who
began just like many bands on
the scene. The battle to the top
begins first and foremost, with
a dream, but it takes more than
passion to make it in L.A. Devo-
tion to playing gigs every night
and making yourself stand out,
just as Jim Morrison's rebellious
stage antics did, are the key to
attracting any attention from a
major label. Modern acts, such
as The Brian Jonestown Massacre
(featured in the 2004 documen-
tary Dig!) gain a steady cult fol-
lowing to create buzz.
Having a loyal and forgiving
fan base allows a band to be more
experimental, but when it comes
see L.A. page B3
pushed through without seeming
overly cliche. That's worth it, as
well as some very decent film
editing. You can see it in the cut
scenes and the montages with
mixed camera shots and panning
in and out. Those two things are
very good in this move.
Yet to have such a comedy-
inclined cast, I was disappointed
with the results. Jon Lovitz is a
great comic mind, but he was
tied to a certain role and couldn't
play the funny man I think he
could've been. Craig Kilborn is a
good young funny man, but he
was under utilized. Tim Meadows
(a.k.a. "The Ladies Man") doesn't
get enough chance to spread his
wings. Most of them make room
for main characters that are out-
side their comfort zone.
The problem with movies
that have Adam Sandler's name
on it is that they're often too
stupid for their own good (yes,
although this movie did not
star Sandier, he did produce it).
Take for instance a movie like
Anger Management. Honestly, it
was funny because a lot of the
characters didn't have these
dirty little secrets. Jack Nichol-
son's character didn't end up
with a gay lover or an obsessive
urination problem because
whatever charisma he had
built up would be destroyed.
As if someone would try to do
that to such a funny man as
Nicholson.
The problem is too many of
the characters in these movies
have dirty little secrets that
are supposed to be funny, but
the problem is they destroy
whatever stock is built up in
the character. In Benchwarm-
ers, it was very hard to find a
central bad guy because all their
charisma kept getting bashed
by some humiliating scene.
I'm sorry, but no good bad
guy is in love with purple nurples.
There were far too many of those
in this movie.
That goes back to the point
about comedy. Sandler's movies
don't explore new limits of funny
and comedy; they rely on old stal-
warts like the classic effeminate
gay man or transvestite dancer,
or in this movie, the twisting of
nipples. Many Sandier movies
follow a formula.
Start with one guy who's real,
throw in a bunch of screwballs
with a secret, add at least one
effeminate man and also a man
who does something incredibly
gross and seems to be okay with
or like it.
In Waterboy, you've got the
Cajun farmer who can't be under-
stood and likes to rub his nipples
while his shirt is off. In 50 First
Dates, you've got the boy who
has a steroid problem and an
unmistakable speech impedi-
ment, as well as the zookeeper
of undeterminable gender. Look
at Anger Management and find
the baseball security guard who
moonlights as a homosexual
prostitute. Honestly, I don't know
how anyone with a homosexual
lifestyle can watch his movies
and not get upset.
Anyway, Benchwarmers will
follow that same formula with
Schneider as the good guy with
his head on straight. You'll have
Sean Salisbury from ESPN as the
bad guy jock who likes to have
fun with a guy running around
in a rainbow thong.
After a while, the formula
stops working. Now, if low-
brow stuff with a repetitive
formula is your thing, you'll
like Benchwarmers. If you ask
me, Sandler's tank of funny is
running out.

Grail Michael Baigent who is now
in a legal battle in the UK.
many twist and turns and is a
wonderful page turning thriller,
but this novel also has its draw-
backs. With the intense loads of
information thrown at the reader
every chapter, it's hard to let it all
sink in without getting confused
at some point.
The authors were very metic-
ulous in their research and it
shows. If you are looking for a
quick thrill with minor informa-
tion, this book is not for you. The
authors include a lot of informa-
tion and keeping it all straight
can be a challenge, especially
with the many French names.
Holy Blood, Holy Grail is
thought provoking, in-depth
and it explains the research
almost down to a science includ-
ing a lengthy notes and reference
section and index in the back
of the novel that comes in
extremely handy.
Baigent, Leigh and Lin-
coln do as good a job as pos-
sible when explaining confus-
ing time lines and the order
of things by using maps and
lists throughout the novel.
Holy Blood, Holy Grail authors
maintain an air of speculation
throughout the novel and pres-
ent the information in the form
of a hunt for what could possibly
be an alternate history of Jesus,
rather than throwing readers into
some fictional characters and a
wild goose chase.
The novel is lengthy, very
detailed and one of the tough-
est reads for someone without
a background in some form of
French, but it is also exciting
and irresistible. It was definitely
worth the $8 I paid for it. Why
take my word for it? Read it for
yourself before you go see the
movie The Da Vinci Code.

to business, that could be a bad
thing. When Wilco submitted
their 2002 album Yankee Hotel
Foxtrot to Warner Brothers, the
album was rejected for being
"too artistic
In response, the band released
the album for free on their Web
site where it became a great
success and was eventually re-
purchased by Warner Brothers
making the whole escapade a vic-
tory against the cold hearted eco-
nomic side of the music industry.
After all, L.A. is best known
for launching cookie-cutter stars
such as Ashlee Simpson and
Hillary Duff, who have a short
duration in the spotlight and are
primarily business assets, so a
band changing their image risks
turning a profit.
The issue of balancing artistic
creativity and smart business
has sparked great turmoil in the
music industry, mostly associ-
ated with the big business of
L.A. and the musicians who feel
that the integrity of their art
should not be stifled because
of commercialism.
If the main idea is getting the
music out there for the masses to
enjoy, then L.A. is in essence the
perfect city.
However, it is always dif-
ficult to balance the rationale
of business with the emotion
of art, so L.A. is always going
to be a hot spot for drama in
the music business, which
makes it all the more glorious.

THURSDAY April 13, 2006
The largest crowd to ever grace ECU's Clark-LeClair stadium witnessed a thrilling 13-inning contest between the Pirates and the No. 12 Wolfpack of N.C. State Wednesday night, which was ended by outfielder
Jamie Ray's heroics in the bottom of the 13th inning, singling up the middle to score Stephen Batts and win the game 2-1. Adam Witter, who hit his sixth home run of the season in the fourth inning, walked
with two outs in the 13th, which brought up Ryan Wood, who slapped a clutch single through the hole to advance Witter to second base. Batts pinch ran for Witter after Wood's single, which left the game
on Jamie Ray's shoulders. He came through for the Pirates, singling up the middle to score Batts and win the game. Shane Matthews (4-2) got the win for ECU (22-13, 4-5) while Joey Cutler (0-1) took the
loss for N.C. State (27-10,10-5). Jay Mattox led the Pirates at the plate in hits as he collected three in five at bats. ECU will look to build on their momentum after taking the game against NCSU, along with
winning their C-USA series last weekend at Central Florida, when they take on Albany in Greenville this weekend for more out of conference action. Photo by Zach Sirkin.

that every day, until their coach's
mantra was as familiar as the
morning bugle called.
BRENT WYNNE
SENIOR WRITER
(KRT) They laughed at the
irony, and if that sounds strange,
well, you didn't know Maggie
Dixon.
"Biggest heart ever said
Micky Mallette, a guard out of
Elmira Heights, N.Y as she stood
outside St. Charles Borromeo
Roman Catholic Church and
watched the sunlight twinkle off
the gilded doors.
"Nobody had her heart,
nobody said Jamie Dixon, older
brother of Maggie and coach of
the Pittsburgh men's team, before
pausing to wipe away another
rush of tears.
"I know her heart will stay
with us for all our remaining days
on Earth
They'll be reminded of it in
the lyrics of an Irish folk song,
or the sweet aroma of a home-
cooked meal, or a postcard from
some exotic corner. She was an
adventurer, a gourmet chef, a
coach and a friend. Some 1,200
on Tuesday in a funeral service
that was both joyous and unbear-
ably sad, mourned her. She died
too soon, at age 28, barely one
month after being hoisted atop
the shoulders of euphoric cadets
upon leading Army's women's
basketball team to its first NCAA
Tournament berth. Undetected
by anyone, Maggie's heart was
enlarged, and there was a prob-
lem with a valve, and when she
collapsed at a friend's house last
Wednesday, it was an incompre-
hensible tragedy.
Shortly after the congrega-
tion gave her one last standing
ovation, Maggie's players, their
hair pulled back in neat chi-
gnons, their dress slacks expertly
pleated and shirts a dazzling
white, filed in two crisp lines
and stood silently as her coffin
left the church. She didn't attend
West Point, but her remains will
be buried Friday on the storied
grounds of the U.S. Military
Academy, an honor generally
reserved for war heroes. The Long
Gray Line salutes excellence.
Maggie, it seems, always was
destined for great things. She was
the centerpiece of an improbable
Army season, a rookie coach
lured away from DePaul's assis-
tant ranks less than two weeks
before the Black Knights' first
game. The team, which had
gone 74-70 in five years before
Maggie arrived on the banks of
the Hudson River, turned a 5-7
start into a 20-11 finish. Army
won its first Patriot League cham-
pionship before losing to power-
house Tennessee in the NCAA
Tournament's first round.
Neither Bob Knight nor Mike
Krzyzewski won championships
as Army coaches. Maggie Dixon
was equal parts no-nonsense
disciplinarian and kind-hearted
cheerleader. She was raised on a
quiet street in the thick of Hol-
lywood glitz, the third child of
Jim, an actorscreenwriter, and
Margie, an employee of Warner
Bros childhood sweethearts
who 40 years ago left the Irish
working-class streets of Throgs
Neck in the Bronx for California
promise.
"She was always reminding us
that we had a special opportunity
to turn what we've learned at the
academy into success said Army
forward Ashley Magnani.
"She taught us to dream big,
to play big, to want big things in
our lives
If they could rise at dawn and
stand hours in formation, if they
could make it through plebe year
mostly unscathed, they could
do most anything on the court.
Maggie Dixon told her players
Maggie's original dreams
were diverted: she hoped to play
in the WNBA after graduating
from the University of San Diego
in 1999, but never got beyond
a tryout with the Los Angeles
Sparks. Jamie saw excellence in
his little sister before anyone
else. He encouraged her to coach,
to spread her energy and share
her spirit.
"She saw the good in every-
one. She made everyone around
her a better person. She made
me a better person. I've said this
before Jamie told the packed
church, "when 1 grow up I want
to be just'like her
March was a dizzy month for
the Dixon's. Maggie and Jamie
were the first siblings ever to make
the NCAA Tournament together
as coaches. They were going
places. Jamie was approached for
high-profile vacancies at Arizona
State and Missouri, before signing
a million-dollar, multi-year con-
tract extension with Pitt. Army

A struggling University of
Albany baseball team will make
the trip to Greenville for their
first ever series in Clark-LeClair
Stadium this weekend against the
Pirates. The Great Danes stumble
into the three game set with an
overall record of 8-17. To make
matters worse, Albany's schedule
has by no means been a tough
one. Their opponents combined
record for the season is 131-140,
so ECU easily represents their
toughest three game series of the
2006 campaign.
In order for the Great Danes
to be competitive against the
Pirates, they must continue to
hit well as a team despite the
dramatic increase in the quality
of pitching they will be seeing.
As a squad, Albany is batting .290
on the season with five players
that see regular action batting
over .300. The problem, however,
has been the lack of production
against quality opponents for the
most part. St. John's (22-8) and
VM1 (21-12) have been Albany's
most formidable foes, and in four
games total against these two
teams the Danes managed just 19
total runs. Fourteen of those runs
came in one contest, a 14-13 win
over VMI. The Keydets won the
other two contests 8-3 and 14-2,
while St. John's won the only
meeting with Albany 17-1.
What the Great Danes will
have to do, is find a way to match
their offensive output every game
against the Pirates like they did
in their win over VMI. That will
likely be easier said than done, as
ECU boasts a team ERA of 3.35.
Catcher Tom Hill leads Alba-
ny's offense with a .359 average.
The junior slugger has five home
runs, 21 RBI and is slugging .615
for the season. At .349, Steve
Wyland is second on the team
in average. He does not have the
pop that Hill shows, evident by
his zero in the homerun column
and only 14 RBI. Leo Corvino
(.340), Al Barbato (.333) and
Brad Daniels (.310) are all impact
players that either play everyday
or most of the time. Nate Olson's
five dingers and 16 RBI rounds
out a solid Dane offense.
Pitching for Albany has been
wildly inconsistent and in a
word, atrocious. With a team
ERA of 5.78, it's easy to see why
the Danes are 8-17 and why they
struggle so badly to keep oppo-
nents off the scoreboard. The
only bright spot on the staff has
been Mark Suchowiecki, who was
named the America East Confer-
ence pitcher of the week last week

THE EAST CAROLINIAN SPORTS

As stars rise in Southeast
Division, rivalries emerge
Martin Gerber (29) has been lights out for the Southeast Division champion Hurricanes this season.
(KRT) It may sound strange, but some of the
most exciting young players in the NHL reside in
the Southeast Division.
Florida has Olli Jokinen and Roberto Luongo;
Washington has super-rookie Alexander Ovechkin;
division leading Carolina trots out Eric Staal and
Martin Gerber; Atlanta has Ilya Kovalchuk and
Marian Hossa to name a few, and the defending
champion Lightning bring Martin St. Louis, Vin-
cent Lecavalier and Brad Richards.
Not too shabby.
Years of poor play and good drafting have been
the impetus for the improvement of play in the
Southeast Division, yet a good number of the top
players were brought south through trades and
free agency.
Top players used to look down at teams from
the Sun Belt, hoping to get bigger paydays and
more respect by playing for one of the traditional
powers. But in the new NHL, where free-spending
teams such as Detroit, Toronto and the Rangers are
handcuffed with a salary cap, more top players will
spread throughout the league.
And with most of the teams in the Southeast
under the salary cap, the division is about to gef
some more talent.
"It seems to be a division that's really develop-
ing some premier players inside each franchise
Panthers coach Jacques Martin said.
"I think it's a very competitive division. I think
there is tremendous parity around the league. It's a
battle every night
Forward Jon Sim came to the Panthers this
season in a trade with Philadelphia and has noticed
the intensity between the teams in the Southeast.
Although teams in this division don't have the
storied history other top rivalries have, things are
heating up. Tampa Bay coach John Tortorella has
long maintained his team doesn't have a rivalry
with the cross-state Panthers, but don't tell the
players that.
The two played for the eighth and final time
on Sunday, with the games usually intense and
chippy.
"It's a great division with a lot of good rivalries
heating up Sim said.
"You can really sense the rivalries building up
in each game. We've had our share of great games
with Tampa Bay, but with Carolina and Atlanta as
well. We've gone at it with them
And the play in the Southeast Division has
definitely picked up since realignment seven years
ago.
Tampa Bay looks like it'has sewn up a phyoff
berth, and will get a chance to defend its Stanley
Cup championship. The Lightning has used the
draft as its friend, with former GM Rick Dudley and
current boss Jay Feaster getting plenty of accolades
for turning the league's laughingstock into a cham-
pion in a few years.
Carolina looks like a contender for the top
prize, and ready to prove its critics wrong. Sure,
the Hurricanes haven't played their best hockey in
recent weeks, but Carolina ran away with the divi-
sion this year and will be a different team once the
postseason starts.
Atlanta is one of the most exciting teams in the
league and probably would be a playoff team if it
didn't have so many goaltending issues this season.
If Atlanta had Kari Lehtonen since the beginning,
the Thrashers would be a postseason team no one
would want to face. Instead, Atlanta will watch
the playoffs from home just like rivals Florida and
Washington.
"Hopefully, the goal is to create some parity
Atlanta captain and former Florida standout Scott
Mellanby said.
"The difference between making the playoffs,
finishing fifth or sixth, and missing it isn't much.
It's a pretty fine line
Florida fell short in its run to the postseason,
with three losses in four games offsetting the
team's impressive seven-game winning streak. The
Panthers are looking to the future and should be
a playoff team in the coming year. The only weak
link in the division appears to be Washington; a
team where it doesn't appear things are going to
get better anytime soon. The same can't be said for
the division as a whole.
"It's a good division and for years to come,
I think, it's going to be pretty good Mellanby
said.
"It's going to be a heck of a division, and you'n-
seeing a lot of good rivalries
Albany from page 65
for his efforts against Hartford. The senior southpaw
threw a complete game, five-hit shutout in the
Danes 9-0 over the Hawks. He struck out 10 and
walked just one batter. For the season, Suchowiecki
is 2-4 with a 3.86 ERA in nearly 33 innings.
Albany will rely heavily on their average hitters
and Suchowiecki to carry them through this series.
If they can find a way to solve their pitching prob-
lems past their ace, then they may be able to sneak
a game from the Pirates. Otherwise, the Diamond
Bucs could be looking at earning their first sweep
since the Marist series.
This is the time for ECU to be adding wins to
their record and building their NCAA tournament
resume. The push for eight straight tournament
appearances begins now, and a three games sweep
of Albany would be a great start as the Pirates head
down the home stretch of 2006.

Paris Saint-Germain soccer fans are shown in the Kop de Boulogne section of the Pare des Princes soccer stadium during a match on
April 11. Interviews with gang members and repeated visits to PSG games found that racist hooligans operate openly and with almost
total Impunity at the 43,000-seat stadium on the western outskirts of Paris.
Soccer Bigots create climate of
hate, fear at matches in France
j
(AP) Warming up on the
sideline, a black player jogs toward
fans at the Pare des Princes soccer
stadium. As he gets closer, a bar-
rage of monkey chants explodes,
"OOOH! OOOH! OOOH and
racist insults fill the air.
Such scenes are increasingly
common at the home stadium of
Paris Saint-Germain, or PSG, one
of France's top soccer teams. And
they stain elite soccer leagues
elsewhere in Europe, raising fears
a global sport that calls itself
"the beautiful game" is getting
more ugly.
Many of the fans yelling
insults are members of white
hooligan gangs that prowl the
stadium grounds on game day,
looking for a rumble with black
and Arab members of a multieth-
nic rival gang.
Interviews with gang mem-
bers and repeated visits to PSG
games found that racist hooligans
operate openly and with almost
total impunity at the 43,000-seat
stadium on the western outskirts
of Paris.
Soccer, with its many black
stars, should be a showcase of
multiracial harmony especially
in France, which draws heavily
on talent from its former African
colonies.
Instead, brawling soccer fans
have emerged as the extreme
fringe of a deeply troubled France
one whose problems include
grappling with stiffening resis-
tance to immigration. After the
riots that engulfed immigrant-
dominated French suburbs last
fall, beer-fueled racism in soccer
has taken on an even more men-
acing tinge.
Unlike soccer hooliganism
elsewhere, in which the antago-
nists are fans of rival teams, the
clashes outside Pare des Princes
are largely between fans rooting
for the same team PSG.
PSG supporters in the bleach-
ers divide along racial lines in
two opposing sections of stands,
the Kop of Boulogne behind one
goal, and the Tribune d'Auteuil
behind the other.
Boulogne is nearly entirely
Caucasian; Auteuil is multiracial,
including whites.

showing off a finger that got bent
out of shape in a fan skirmish,
said his gang is out to rid the
suburbs of blacks and Arabs.
A high-ranking Tigris Mystic
man said his group is fighting
back against such "fascist" views.
"We've had enough of being
knocked around said the 23 -year-
old man of North African descent.
Tigris Mystic is based in
the Paris suburb of Seine-Saint-
Denis, one of the centers of last
fall's riots. Casual Firm hooligans
wielding iron bars vandalized its
headquarters in October, just days
before the violence broke out.
On Feb. 25, Tigris Mystic
members, some allegedly armed
with machetes and nail-stud-
ded planks of wood, ambushed
20 Independents at a highway
gas station on their "way back
from a match. Five people were
injured.
PSG, where George Weah of
Liberia and Ronaldinho of Brazil
once displayed their magic, is not
alone in facing racist outrages.
In Spain, Barcelona striker
Samuel Eto'o of Cameroon
threatened to walk off the field
after Zaragoza fans subjected
him to monkey chants in Febru-
ary. In Italy, right-wing fans have
displayed Nazi and fascist sym-
bols and anti-Semitic banners at
Rome's Stadio Olimpico.
But some black players say the
atmosphere at Pare des Princes
has become intolerable.
"I'd have to think twice
before setting foot there again
Senegal-born Patrick Vieira,
a midfielder for the French
national team, told The Associ-
ated Press.
During one match, a fan
yelled at PSG midfielder Vikash
Dhorasoo, a France international
midfielder of Indian origin, "Go
sell peanuts in the metro It was
among the least offensive shout
in a tirade of vulgar epithets for
blacks.
PSG officials insist racists are
a minority among the fans, and
that their powers to combat such
racists are limited, even with 102
cameras inside the stadium.
"Understand one thing:
PSG has no police authority or
lawmaking power the club's
director of communications,
Jean-Philippe d'Hallivllle, said
in an interview.
"You can't ask PSG to arrest
and judge people. Things don't
work that way in France
Yet, former hooligans have
been hired as stadium ushers. At
a recent match, some on them
were on first-name terms with
known troublemakers and were
letting them in without tickets
or a search.
When told of this, d'Halliville
appeared surprised and said only
that he would "make some calls
However, he did not condemn
the presence of former hooligans
acting as ushers.
"Even if there are former hoo-
ligans who work in the security
services, are you not allowed a
second chance?" he asked.
"Should they bear a cross all
their lives?"
"That's just passing the buck
said Piara Power, director of the
British-based Kick It Out anti-
racism campaign. "Denial is a
big thing among football admin-
istrators. Unfortunately, turning
the other cheek is easier
Ushers did just that before
a PSG game against Sochaux
Jan. 4. Two Arab youths were
punched and kicked by white
fans outside the entrance to the
Kop de Boulogne. Ushers, all
white, stood chatting and did
not intervene.
Interior Minister and presi-
dential hopeful Nicolas Sarkozy
has promised to rid PSG of
troublesome fans. He wants them
banned from matches and has
championed anti-terrorism leg-
islation that would boost video
surveillance at stadiums.
March 7, a Paris court con-
victed three PSG supporters of
unfurling a racist banner at a
February 2005 match held in
support of an anti-racism cam-
paign. The court banned the fans
from the stadium for three years,
ordering them to report to police
during matches, and fined them
up to $1,200.
But that was a minor success
in the fight against racist hoo-
ligans. And now a fresh cloud
looms, this summer's World Cup
tournament in Germany, which
many fear will be a magnet for
hooligans.

is sure Maggie had offers to move
up the coaching ladder, but he
believed her when she said she
wouldn't leave West Point.
"And then she did said
Anderson, who couldn't finish
his thought but cheered up once
the subject turned back to Mag-
gie's drive to make everything she
touched a little bit brighter. Did
you know she actually believed
her players could dunk on Ten-
nessee? That thousands of cadets
gave her a standing ovation one
day in the dining hall? That West
Point basketball had never seen
anything quite like this spunky,
big-hearted woman?
UCLA men's coach Ben How-
land was one of the many who
laughed at the rich stories Tues-
day, and when Magnani told
mourners, "Coach Dixon, our
angel, we promise to make you
proud it was impossible not
to imagine Maggie Dixon being
lifted atop shoulders and led out
of the room one final time.
