Students gain new
insight on terrorism
Two students, Chris Federici
and Joel Carter, both political sci-

11 memorial to be held on campus
after visiting Israel and gaining
more knowledge about terrorist
The 9-11 ceremony will be
held in front of the brickyard at

University officials
really keep track of
what we do
Every student at ECU is gov-
erned by the Code of Conduct
which was set by authorities many
years ago. This code states: "You
are on your honor not to cheat,
steal or lie
College students are (or should
be) old enough to know right from
wrong, but the Code of Conduct
simply puts in writing what not
to do.
According to ECU's Web site,
"Any student whose conduct on or
off campus becomes unsatisfac-
tory in the judgment of university
officials in light of the foregoing
statements or policies will be
subject to appropriate disciplin-
ary action
The statements not to be
violated include cheating, pla-
giarism, falsification and any
attempts to do any of these. Every
student signs a paper promising
not to do these things when they
enter as freshman.
The Web site also informs
students that, "No student will be
permitted to graduate or officially
withdraw from East Carolina Uni-
versity while disciplinary action is
pending against him or her
Completing your own research,
writing, studying, tests, etc is
part of being a student. When, or
if, you get a degree, it is because
you have earned it yourself.
ECU athletes must follow the
Code on a more strict scale.
On the Web site, it clearly
states that, "Student athletes
enrolled at East Carolina Univer-
sity are expected to uphold, at all
times, standards of integrity and
behavior that will reflect credit
upon themselves, their families
and East Carolina University.
Student-athletes are also expected
to behave with propriety and to
respect the rights and privileges
of others
Athletes can be suspended and
lose athletic scholarships if the
Code of Conduct is violated.

ECU nurses honored in
Top 100 of North Carolina
Nurses to be recognized
in Greensboro
A grass-roots organization
dedicated to honoring nurses of
North Carolina has selected two
ECU nurses to be in their honorary
Top 100 listing.
Bobbie Lou
Price, the bar-
iatric program
nurse manager
for the Brody
School of Medi-
cine, and Donna
Roberson, a clin-
ical instructor at
the Brody School
of Nursing, were
nominated by
their fellow peers
and ultimately
selected for the
Price, who is
from Farmville,
N.C received
her Bachelor of
Science degree from Barton College
in Wilson, N.C.
Price started her career with
the surgical intermediate unit after
getting out of nursing school and
began her focus on working with
bariatrics. She stayed with this
position for 10 and a half years
before committing herself to the
bariatric department of ECU,
where she has been ever since.
Bariatrics involves working
with morbidly obese patients who
want to lose weight and can't do it
by any other means.
Price was recently given the
chairmanship of the nursing sec-
tion of the allied health section of
the American Society for Bariatric
Surgery for the next two years.
Price keeps busy with her job
traveling at least once a month
with the Bariatric society teaching
courses on how to set up programs
for Bariatric surgery.
"1 think it's a wonderful honor
to know that somebody thought
enough of you to nominate you for
something that big said Price,
"and that they think you're a well
versed nurse, you know, they trust
what you do and it just makes you
feel good to know that somebody
cares about you enough to nomi-
nate you for something like that
Price was nominated by her
former supervisor Martha Dartt.
Roberson has worked with the
ECU School of Nursing for more
than 12 years, primarily teaching
undergraduate students. Roberson
serves on the committees within
the school of nurses such as under-
graduate affairs.
Roberson was nominated by a
former student.
Price and Roberson will be
heading to a celebration dedicated
to the Great 100 Nurses in Greens-
boro in October.
"It's a black-tie event so my
husband gets to wear a tuxedo,
which he's not exactly thrilled
about said Roberson. "You can
do a lot of things when you have a
good organization like East Caro-
lina behind you
"It's been a very positive
experience and it's a tremendous
honor that a student would take
the time to do this and it speaks
a lot and I'm really touched by it
Roberson said.
Roberson is currently
pursuing her doctoral degree in
nursing from the University of
Carolina at Chapel Hill.
According to the Great 100
Web site, the grass-roots organiza-
tion honors the nursing profession
by recognizing the importance of
registered nurses in diverse prac-
tice settings, positively impacting
the image of nursing and nursing
as a profession, acknowledging 100
North Carolina Nurses annually
who demonstrate excellence in
practice and commitment to their
profession, and contributing funds
for scholarships for Registered
Nurse education.

Gardasil covered
by student health
ECU's Student Health Ser-
vices now offers the only vaccine
available in the United States for
prevention of HPV.
The vaccine, which was
approved by the Food and Drug
Administration on June 8, is called
Gardasil. Gardasil is the first vac-
cine developed to prevent cervi-
cal cancer, precancerous genital
lesions and genital warts caused
by the HPV virus, according to
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention.
"We have a great health edu-
cation system here at ECU, so I
knew they would bring it here
said Shawnte' McMillan, interim
health educator for Stu-
dent Health Services.
"The vaccine has been
available on campus since
the start of this semester
According to the CDC,
HPV is the name of a group of
viruses that contains over 100
different strands. Of these 100
strands, more than 30 are sexually
transmitted. The vaccine protects
against strands 6, 11, 16 and 18
- the four that are most likely to
cause serious health problems.
The vaccination has been
tested on over 11,000 females ages
11 to 26 from all racial, ethnic and
socioeconomic backgrounds. The
only side effects shown by these
studies have been pain, swelling,
itching and redness around the
site of injection.
The vaccination is given in
a series of three shots over a six
month period. At the Student
Health Center the cost of the vac-
cination is $130 per dose, totaling
$390 for the full series. Student
health insurance will cover the
cost of the vaccine, however the
same does not go for some other
health insurance companies
"While it is the most expensive
Vaccine to date, it is recom-
mended across the nation said
"Because of the cost, you will
have to pay for each shot ahead of
time so that it can be brought from
the warehouse
On June 29, the Advisory
Committee on Immunization
Practices voted unanimously to
recommend that girls and women
ages 11 to 26 be vaccinated. There
is also a movement to make the
vaccination a requirement before
girls enter the seventh grade.
Critics believe that issuing the
vaccine to girls at a young age will
promote them to be sexually active
sooner. McMillan disagrees, "As a
health educator I personally don't
believe that it will cause young
girls to become more sexually
active, it will just cause more
people to be educated
According to McMillan, ECU
was not among the top 20 college
campuses nationwide with the
highest prevalence of sexually
transmitted diseases, as reported
in a recent study.

1979 - ECU'S yearbook, the Buccaneer, returned after a three year hiatus.
The yearbook was not printed in 1977 because of a budget dispute

Drunk driver gets 4 months for
hitting blind woman, guide dog
(AP) - A man who hit a blind woman
and her guide dog while driving
drunk, killing the dog, was sentenced
Tuesday to four months in prison after
offering the woman a tearful apology.
Stephen White Coffee, 28, pleaded
guilty last month to driving while
impaired, felony hit and run, and
another alcohol offense. He was also
sentenced to two years' probation.
At his sentencing, Coffee apologized
in a choking voice to Danielle Iredale,
who was hit on the morning of Oct. 5
as she and her dog, Inka, waited at
a bus stop.
The dog was killed, and Iredale
suffered mild brain damage, a broken
leg and muscle damage in the other
leg. Police said Coffee's blood-alcohol
level was 0.16, twice the legal limit for
drivers in North Carolina, when he
was arrested.
Iredale read a poem she composed
about losing Inka. She also said she
has suffered from major depression
and suicidal feelings, leaving her
afraid to leave her Carrboro home and
unable to work.
Her new guide dog, Flurry,
occasionally whined and barked
during the hearing.
Afterward, Iredale filed a lawsuit
against Coffee, two of his co-workers
and a bar where Coffee worked and
was drinking before the accident.
Durham clinic to offer Inpatlent
treatment for eating disorders
(AP) - A private, inpatient clinic opening
in Durham this week will broaden the
options available to people suffering
from eating disorders, including
anorexia nervosa and bulimia.
Carolina House will offer long-term
residential care, scheduling activities
throughout the day and night designed
to help establish healthy eating
patterns. The facility will have six beds,
with plans to expand to 12 beds by
next year, including space for men
and boys.
Families will be invited for periodic
therapy sessions. Patients, who will
stay for six weeks or more, will take part
in individual and group counseling, art
therapy, yoga, movement therapy and
even work with horses on the wooded
10-acre grounds.
Existing eating disorder programs at
Duke University Medical Center and at
UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill primarily
treat people on an outpatient basis.
Little scientific proof exists as to which
approach is more effective.
But advocates of both types agree that
more treatment options are needed.
Fewer than 10 percent of patients with
eating disorders get treatment, said
Barry Karlin, chief executive of CRC
Health Group, the national behavioral
health care provider that operates
Carolina House.
The mortality rate among young
women with anorexia nervosa is
about 12 times higherthan the annual
death rate for all females age 15 to 24,
according to the National Institute of
Mental Health.
"It's unconscionable in our society that
such a tiny percentage of people who
need help get help Karlin said at a
grand opening celebration at Carolina
House last week.

Croc Hunter How to explain Irwln's
death to children
(KMTR) - Steve Irwin, known as
the Crocodile Hunter, is being
remembered as a man who gave us
an up-close and personal look at wild
animals as no one else ever has. He
could make us laugh and cringe at
the same time.
Irwin leaves behind two children,
Bindi Sue and Robert. They have four
cousins who live in Eugene who are
among the thousands of kids around
the world who had aspirations of
becoming the next crocodile hunter.
Vergamini says it's especially important
for parents to take an active roll in
explaining the situation to children.
"Help children understand that he's
not a superhero, he is a real person.
And things happen to real people.
Accidents happen and that's what
happened to him, Vergamini says.
"We have good things to remember
about him, and things from him that will
go on in terms of what he wanted us to
do about the animals, Vergamini says.
Judy Vergamini suggests parents
help kids create their own memorial
to say good-bye. Follow their lead if
they want to plant something or visit
animals in the shelter or the zoo. Have
them draw pictures or write a letter to
the Irwin family.
As adults, we turn to the news for
the latest information, but parts of
the story could be too graphic for
kids to see and hear. So, Vergamini
says, however you choose to tell your
child, turn off the TV before you do it,
Approaching a difficult subject with
tact will ensure children will still feel
comfortable when they say:
"When I grow up, I want to be
Superman a firefighter I want to be
the Crocodile Hunteri"
If your child continues to be sad or
have nightmares for more than two
weeks, Vergamini says you should
seek professional help.
Four slaughtered In Maine, cook

bed-and-breakfast cook is under
arrest after four people were slain.
Detectives say Christian Nielsen
told them he first attacked a resident
of southern Maine's mountain ski
country on Friday. Affidavits say
Nielsen went on to kill the owner
of a bed-and-breakfast where he
was staying, and then the owner's

group that educates students about ings about the students visiting the
terrorism and teaches them tools country because of the continuing
violent conflicts.
According to Carter, FDD
received complaints from parents
to possibly reduce terrorist arts.
The students departed tor their
trip on July '29 and returned on
who were shocked that the orga-
nization was going to go through
with the trip.
As a result, 39 out the 45
people that were initially signed up
to go on the trip actually went.
Ironically, while the students
were in Israel, war was declared
in the country. The itinerary for
the trip was altered to keep the
students from visiting areas where
they could be in danger.
Even though Israel was in a
state of war, the students saw a
different side of the country than is
expressed in the media everyday.
According to Carter, the orga-
nization had a chance to see people

and going on with their everyday
While the students were there,
they heard from various people
who educated them on terrorism.
According to Federici, they
heard a series of lectures at Tel-
sAviv University and met with
many academic professors, mem-
j; bers of Shin-bet and former and
current IDF officers.
They also visited the office
of the Prime Minister of Israel
and spoke with many of the top
officials there.
Carter and Federici also saw a
demonstration from an undercover
police unit, saw live fire exercises
from bomb squads and heard the
story of an individual's family who
was involved in terrorist attacks.
After listening to the
individual's story about his family
being killed, the students said that
they could sense that the man
wanted justice for his lost, not
One lesson that the students
gained from their visit to Israel
is a better understanding of why
terrorists kill.
Carter said that they saw
pictures of an infant dressed in
a bomb suit, which signified to
him that people who are consid-
ered terrorists are raised from
day one to sacrifice their lives
by killing themselves and many
others because it is considered a
noble act.
According to Carter, the
media's display of terrorists com-
mitting violent acts might be
helping them to be seen as good
people in their culture, which
may continue the escalate the

Occupational-related majors soar at U.S
(MCT) Alex Zatvornitsky
has spent uncountable hours
researching Loyola University Chi-
cago, the school where he started
classes as a freshman last month.
He also has worked out how
he will pay for his education and
pondered what career he might
pursue after he graduates.
But his college major? He is in
no real hurry to figure that out,
and in fact, feels it doesn't matter
that much.
"1 don't have a major, and I
don't mind being undecided
Zatvornitsky said recently.
"I know I am not going to
major in science he added,
"maybe anthropology, history
what I do know is that I want to
take a broad scope of things
Zatvornitsky's decision to
make college a time of academic
discovery and exploration is
becoming less common as more
students focus on college majors
with a laser-like precision, hoping
to make themselves more com-
petitive in the job market.
That pressure to compete has
meant majors such as business,
technical or so-called occupa-
tional - related majors, spe-
cialized fields that aie aligned
directly with hot sectors of the
job market, are gaining ground as
the most popular majors on many
university campuses.
Among college students at
four-year institutions, the top five
majors by enrollment are busi-
ness, education, health sciences,
computerinformation sciences
and visualperforming arts,
according to the U.S. Department
of Education's most recent data.
With the exception of biol-
ogy, economics and psychology,
traditional liberal arts and sci-
ences majors have declined both
in the number and the percentage
of the total degrees conferred
during the last 30 years, accord-
ing to Steven Brint, a professor
of sociology at the University of
California at Riverside, who stud-
ies higher education trends.
Strikingly, this trend has
occurred during a time of sig-
nificant enrollment growth at
American universities.
"Occupational fiejds have
accounted for approximately (0
percent of bachelor's degrees in
recent years, up from 5 percent in
the 1960s, and hundreds of institu-
tions now award 80 percent or more
of their degrees in these fields
Brint wrote in a recent study.
The trend toward choosing
occupational majors, such as
business or nursing, instead of a
broader arts and sciences major,
such as linguistics or English, is
not surprising, says Carol Chris-
ten, co-author of "What Color Is
Your Parachute? For Teens a
newly published career guide.
Economic changes, from an
increasingly competitive, global-
ized labor market to the rising
burden of student debt, mean
young people can't afford to
wait until well into college to
make tough choices like choos-
ing a major, she says, and the job u
market should play a role in those

Not just for Pirate Rants )
Those of you who logged on to yesterday
already know we were experiencing
technical difficulties with our Web
site. In addition to our print rede-
sign, we undertook redesigning the
Web site over this summer as well.
The new site was supposed to have
launched early Wednesday morning
with our latest issue, but unfortu-
nately the internet took longer to
process the launch than expected.
We're still working out the bugs, but
bear with us; the end result will be
well worth the confusion.
The new Web site includes a host
of features that the old site lacked,
like an interactive calendar (which .
will be similar to, but more exten- 5
sive than our print calendar), blogs, A T 1 1P i t t
improved message boards, a letter ,o My perSOnal, mUltlfaCeted PltC Railt
the editor submission form and - last
but certainly not least - podcasting
capabilities. Our first podcast is
available for you to download and
enjoy today. We managed (despite
the torrential downpour) to score
an interview with SOJA last week
before they performed at PB's.
Don't panic when you see all the
changes. We've still kept all the
things you loved about the old site
- namely Pirate Rants. You'll find
the Pirate Rant submission form
under the Options tab on the main
I encourage all of you to visit the
new site and click on everything you
possibly can, and then click on Pirate
Rants and tell us what you love, hate
or couldn't figure out how to work,
so we can fix it.
Until next week,
Everything you should be irritated by
Hello one and all, I would like to wel-
come everyone to the first installment of my
opinion column, which shall address every-
thing I can hear and see in my environment
from media outlets to my personal experience.
I would like to state that this is an opinion piece
authored by an everyday student who wishes to get
people to think and decide for themselves. My opin-
ion doesn't express anyone else's views other than
my own. This is an attempt to get some thoughts out
there and some critical thinking about various topics.
I also hope that I don't offend anyone's
feelings, but instead I hope to attack estab-
lished thought about certain topics and their
sensitive nature in the hopes of releasing the
thoughts of the student body at this university.
Now my first topic comes from the media cov-
erage of a certain group of people who are actually
protesting at the sites of soldiers who have died and
are being buried in this country. What are your
damages people? There have been 2,654 U.S. troops
killed in our overseas war on terror campaigns to
recent date. As another fact, the only reason you have
that right is because there are people who put their
life on the line in order to preserve such a notion.
It is OK to protest the war, but not OK to protest
our soldiers! They are the protectors of our world
and its views. It isn't the president, his cabinet
members, senators, celebrities, teachers or even the
clergy; it is Johnny from somewhere in any-state
USA. Everyone else works within the folds of their
efforts. So please support our men and women
Another topic comes from the recent develop-
ment in a murder case of a little girl from Colorado.
The idiot who claims to be not only a rapist, but also
a murderer has been let free due to no match in DNA
evidence. Well my fellow human being, you are guilty
of crimes against humanity greater than that of the
boldest coward. You have brought up a situation that
no one wanted to revisit in the loss of a young life.
A child, an innocent child! You sick, worthless,
inhuman, grotesque, wretched, disgusting excuse for
using birth control. Everyone knows whom I am talk-
ing about, but my fear is, there are so many morejust
like him. I can only promise people like this will be
brought to justice, but that isn't enough. People who
don't believe in God can probably agree with this, you
will have your day to answer to a higher authority.
There is nothing I can say to people about hurting
one another that will deter them from committing
their selfish acts upon their brbthers and sisters. How-
ever, I take some solace and comfort in the fact that I
am not that being who will have to make that decision.
So people of this thinking don't take your way
so light. Don't for a minute think that your bully-
ing, terrorism or imposing nature will be forgiven
in the long run of karmic retribution. You people
will meet your match in the form of what you
least expect. This group of crimes people commit
includes assault, rape or taking unwarranted lib-
erties with a party opposed to your advances. We
must protect one another and ourselves from such
situations. Any victims of these various crimes and
also crimes of this nature that are unnamed by me
should remember two things, you are not at fault
and you're in my heart and prayers. There are people
like me to help you because you are worth it
So it appears that Steve Irwin has died from an
injury sustained by a stingray. Truly, I am sadden
that a conservationist, international ambassador,
humanitarian and wonderful human being such
as this man has died, but I do want to emphasis
that he is only one of many to come before him
and after him. Irwin knew his job was risky and
potentially dangerous, although, this doesn't
truly assuage the pain of his death to the world.
He thrived in that kind of environment because he
had no fear. You can tell that he loved doing what he
did for a living by the way his eyes and words described
everything. People like this need to be celebrated,
not mourned for accepting their danger with grace.
Lastly, on the cusp of the fifth year anniversary
of Sept. 11, we should all give thanks. Mainly because
we can still express our love for important people
in our lives everyday, even though we may not. We
have the opportunity that people aboard planes and
in buildings whose final resting stop was N.Y.C D.C.
and Pennsylvania didn't. So to honor them we need to
be good to each other, our loved ones and ourselves.
We should do this by using one of the notions of
comforting thought that they left us Remember
the proud heritage of your ancestors and your people,
then remember the proud history of this country,
then remember what it is like to be a citizen in this
nation. Lastly, honor these people and others before
them by remembering their sacrifice, determination
and grace upon which they laid so acute a price to pay
for our freedoms. This is another time to be grate-
ful that you are blessed enough to be an American.

Pirate Advice
In the back-to-school issue, we promised you
changes to the Opinions page, and that's just what
you're going to get. Our first change isn't so much
of a change, as it is an addition. As of next week,
there will be a weekly advice column included on
the page. There you will find one of ECU's resident
experts on school, work, relationships of all kinds,
and everything in between.
So if you've already asked your friends for advice
on something and it got you nowhere or if you just
want to try out our new column, drop us a line where
you send your Pirate Rants and title it "Advice and
we'll do our best to help you out. And for those of
you with near perfect lives, read on in the weeks
ahead, we just might be able to help make things
ever better.

outfits all the time. Come to think of it Why
are you wearing purple outfits all the time? I
have Pirate Pride too but come on!
I wish classes were optional on rainy days.
Even though I only live two blocks from
campus, I wish someone would drive me to
my classes when it's raining.
I'm not allowed to have pets at my apartment

Parents: Discuss sex with teens prior to college
(KRT) This month, more
than '2 million teenagers will leave
home for college for the first time
And making the grade isn't the
only thing concerning them and
their parents.
A college campus CM be a land
of freedom, pressure and almost
nonstop partying.
It's enough to make a parent
wonder whether hirth control
should be among the si hool supplies
The question comes up in
American households. Itnoag
teens themselves and in doctor!
offices where some concerned
parents take their teens tor prr-
college emu
"Typically, it's the mother who
brings in her m year old daughter
for her first visit to the gyne-
cologist office says Or Muhele
Thomas, a Southfield-based
OBlYN who says such visits are
common this time of year Moth-
en don't want to encourage sexual
activity, but they also don't want
their daughters to get pregnant.
Pregnancy isn't the only
rt MOD for concern.
Sexually transmitted diseases
are a bigger problem than preg-
nancy on college campuses, health
officials say.
"I encourage parents to talk
about condom use more than
anything because condoms and
spermicide protect against STDs
says Or Amanda Kauffman. a
family practitioner in Ann Arbor
and lecturer at UM. "If I was
a parent, I'd focus on using a
condom every single time. Most
colleges have health clinics where
students can get condoms free or
at very low costs
Doctor! say an open discus-
sion between parents and teenag-
ers, followed by a visit to a health
care professional, are smart moves
for both parents and teens.
1'aients should open the lines
of communication and reiterate
their values and morals, and
then consult with a health care
provider to discuss the various
options you may want to con-
sider says Or. Glynda Moorer,
director of the Olin Student
Health Center at Michigan State
University. "It's vitally important
that they talk openly and honestly
about this And parents can take
comfort in the fact that a national
study shows that so percent of
college students turn to their
parents first for health care infor-
Parents need not worry that
broaching the subject increases
the chances of students having
sex. Open communication leads to
smarter, more responsible choices,
studies show.
Or. Richard E. Smith, direc-
tor of adolescent gynecology at
Henry Ford Health System, says he
explains to both parent and child
that pregnancy prevention is just
one reason to consider birth control.
It can eliminate other con-
cerns, including reducing blood
flow, cramps, irregular periods,
benign breast pain, anemia and
even acne.
Smith says parent-teen discus-
sions are just as important with
boys as with girls.
Young men, especially, need to
be reminded that no means no and
campus police take charges of date
rape very seriously, Smith says.
"I recommend mother-daugh-
ter talks before teens go to school,
but also parent-son talks fre-
quently Smith says.
"There are a lot of pressures
to hook up once men and women
are on campus he says. "One
piece of advice I always give my
patients before they leave for col-
lege is, "Don't let someone steal
your dream
72.5 percent of college stu-
dents reported having sex with
at least one partner.
Of those who acknowledged
being sexually active, 37.3 per-
cent reported using birth control
pills and 35.5 percent used con-
doms, the most commonly used
Approximately 5.6 percent of

Pirates and Blazers each
searching for first win
but none of them have much game experience.
UAB's front seven must get pressure on Pinkney
to shield their defensive backs from ECU's potent
air attack.
2. Force Turnovers:
The Blazers lost three turnovers in their loss to
ECU last year, without forcing one. UAB will
need those extra possessions against ECU's high-
powered offense.
3. Make big plays:
The Blazers had just two plays of 25 yards or more
versus Oklahoma and their longest run was only 12
yards. In order to keep pressure on ECU to score,
the Blazers must find a way to have more than
two "home run" plays.
on a veteran UAB team bent on
revenge for ECU's si-a;) win to
close the 800.r season, preventing
the Blazers from becoming Ixw1-
eligible as both teams finished the
year 5-6.
"This is going to be a heck of a
challenge against UAB Holtz said.

conference games before
we had to get into the
conference race
but this is the
way the sched-
ule is slated.
A lot of
t h
young and inexperienced
players on the insides, closest to the
ball, are going to have to grow up
in a hurry
That inexperience
showed itself in Annapolis
as the Pirates were unable to
develop a consistent running
game or pass protection
with a young offensive line
that will have to contend with a
much bigger defensive line in Bir-
mingham than the one they saw
in Annapolis.
"They're very big and very
physical Holtz said. "I think this
is a very good defensive football
team. They held Oklahoma to H
first downs. They created four
turnovers. They're aggressive.
They get after you
"I think their front seven is
their strength. They're big and
fast strong. The strength of that
front seven is their linebackers.
All three of them are seniors and
they have a lot of experience and
are very good
The best of those lineback-
ers is Orlandus King. King led
the Blazers in tackles against
Oklahoma and he knows
that exploiting ECU's
inexperienced offensive line
to pressure quarterback James
Pinkney will be key to their
success Saturday.

1. Establish the run game:
The Pirates struggled to run the ball last week against
a smaller Navy team. With a bigger and more talented
defensive front, running the ball well consistently is
something the Pirates must do.
2. Protect James Pinkney:
ECU's offensive strength is its receivers, but Pinkney must
have time to deliver the ball. He did well protecting the ball last
week and preventing sacks, but the UAB front seven is quicker
and better than Navy's, so there is more pressure on ECU's
inexperienced offensive line to keep the Blazers at bay.
3. Force 3-and-outs:
The Pirates did not do this once against Navy and its
triple option. With another team that will run the option
and try to spread the field, the Pirates must be able to
force UAB off the field quickly to control the clock and
win the field position battle.
"We are going
to go lay it on the
line and give it our
best shot. ECU is a

ECU's rout improves
record to 4-3
The Lady Pirates volleyball
team prevailed against lowly UNC
Wilmington last night, but not
before having to fight through the
second game and the early stages
of the third. Despite a record of
5-4 after last night's defeat, the
Seahawks are ranked near the
bottom nationally. The Lady
Pirates are now 4-3 on the season.
Outside hitter Kelly Wernert
sealed a Pirate victory in the third
game, with an authoritative kill
in the third game that made the
score 27-18, The Lady Pirates did
not allow the Seahawks to score
again. The final score saw the
Lady Pirates on top 30-14,30-25,
and 30-18
The Lady Pirates, led by co-
captain setter Heidi Krug who
logged 37 assists, had their way
with the Seahawks in the first
game, taking only 15 minutes to
take the l-o lead.
The second game saw the
Seahawks fight back point-for-
point as The Lady Pirates strug-
gled to gain any kind of lead until
the game was tied at 25-25, when
they were able to finally break
free. Led by Wernert's 13 kills,
the Lady Pirates were able to shut
down the Seahawks once and for
all in the third game.
Junior middle blocker Mignon
Dubenion added 10 kills to Wer-
nert's 13. Wernert also led the
team in digs w'th seven, followed
by Stephanie Turner and Trish
Monroe, Krug's co-captain, who
both had six.
After the game, Krug and
Wernert expressed displeasure
with the performance of the team
in the second game.
"Game two .we just completely
dropped to their level said Krug.
"We weren't playing our game
"We started falling to their level
of play Wernert concurred.
Between the second and third
games, Head Coach Chris Rush-
ing and his staff began to become
more vocal with the team. In the
third game Rushing became more
and more vocal moving closer to
the court to instruct his team.
Rushing noted that he thought
the team seemed to relax a little
bit after the first game and let the
Seahawks get back into the match.
"After the second game we
were just like, 'We know we are
a way better team than that and
we took care of business Krug
As for Rushing approaching
the court, Krug said, "He was
trying to light a fire under us
Rushing was a little more

ened them a little bit Rushing
said with a laugh. "We threatened
them with some running stuff. I
said If we do not come out with
some fire and intensity in game
three and come out on top with
the big victory, something was
going to happen
Luckily tor the team, Rushing
has relented on that.
"That something's not going
to happen now because I though
that they came out playing hard

Lady Pirates will play in
N.C. State tournament
While even though this year's
Women's soccer team is dominated
by new players, youth and inexpe-
rience seem to be foreign words to
these Lady Pirates. Through four
games this year, neither seems
to be showing as the team is off
to a 3-1 start. After the loss of
Meghan McCallion to graduation,
the team was in serious need of a
legitimate offensive threat. Enter
the freshmen Pirates.
In the four games so far this
season the freshmen have led the
way by scoring five of the eight
goals for the Pirates. In those
g games the concept of teamwork
that coaches strive to install in
their team also has become self
-evident in coach Donnenwirth's
ladies. In those four games no
player has scored more than one
goal yet the team still finds a way
to win. Of note though is that the
Pirates are led in scoring by fresh-
men Sarah Kirkley and Jessica
Swanson with 4 points apiece.
At the start of the season Coach
Donnenwirth repeatedly stated
that the strength in this team is
in its defense. Apparently Amber
Campbell took this to heart since
in 355:48 in goal this year she has
allowed only a loan overtime goal
to ODU to start the season.
"Amber's done a great job
Coach Donnenwirth said. "We
defend with everybody though
seems to be his mantra as in the
last game he noted that the backs
cleared two of the balls off the
line in that game. Still with this
victory the Lady Pirates have
some momentum heading into
the weekend with 3 wins in a row
and the last being the first win
ever over in-state rival Charlotte.
While some of the underclassmen
may not know the history of this
series, the coaching staff has made
that history and the rivalry very
clear to them.
Yet the Lady Pirates defensive
state of mind is going to be needed
this weekend as they travel to
Raleigh to play in the N.C. State
Tournament. Facing the Pirates
will be un-defeated American
University fresh off as win over
George Mason and the 2-1-1
Georgia State University who just
went undefeated in the Mercer LQ
Cup. Against American's team the
Pirates will have to contend with
top players Katelyn Donovan and
Christina Gonzalez.
"They're playing with a lot
of confidence right now" coach
Donnenwirth said in regards to
American University. He plans to
see them spread his team around
defensively and for it to be a
"Against Georgia State it
depends on what team shows up
Donnenwirth says. The good
thing he notes is that his team
will get to see them play after the
American game on Friday.
Looking ahead, the Lady
Pirates will be welcoming the
Seahawks into the confines of
Bunting Field next week. This
team will not be a bunch of .dead
gulls however since in pre-season
the Seahawks tied both UNC and
Duke. Coach Donnenwirth said
that any game against UNCW is
always physical and one that the
fans should defiantly come out
and watch.
The team seems to be off to
an excellent start however and
the view on the horizon is bright.
With the return of Senior Captain
Rachel Hils to the lineup shortly
the team can only hope to improve
on this fantastic start.

That 'really good receiver'
is Aundrae Allison. Allison led
the Pirates at Navy with six
receptions for 86 yards, but did
not catch either of Pinkney's
two touchdown passes. ECU's
offensive strength is its depth at
receiver, while Holtz says UAB's
weakness on defense is its second-
ary. To take advantage of that
mismatch, however, the Pirates
must establish the run and give
Pinkney enough time to find his
talented receivers.
"Their secondary is the weak-
ness, but their front seven is so
good, that they can get after you
and protect them Holtz said.
The young ECU offensive
line faces a daunting task with a
very good and experienced defen-
sive front. Senior defensive ends
Jermaine McElveen and Larry
McSwain make a formidable
bookend tandem. McSwain, who
was suspended for the Oklahoma
game, was voted as C-USA's
Preseason Defensive Player of
the Year. ECU center Tom Wing-
enbach recognizes the challenge
UAB presents up front, but is
optimistic from what he saw at
"I feel encouraged Wingen-
bach said.
"I feel we have tons we can
improve on, but I'm really pleased
with some of the things we did
as an offensive line. We didn't
do enough of them, obviously
because we didn't win the game.
The coaches are putting together
quite a good game plan for us to
get what we couldn't do against
Navy going against UAB
The Pirates will be seeing
more of a conventional 4-3 look
from the Blazers, something
Wingenbach said he did not see
once in Annapolis. The scheme is
similar to the one ECU runs, so
the senior center who made his
first career start against Navy
thinks the familiarity of seeing
the defense will help.
"It will be a lot like playing
our own defense and that will
benefit us Wingenbach said.
Offensively, the Blazers lost
their career passing leader when
quarterback Darrell Hackney
graduated. Hackney, who was
released by the Cleveland Browns
Friday, threw for 71 touchdowns
and nearly 10,000 yards in his
three seasons as UAB's starter.
To replace those numbers, UAB
coach Watson Brown is going
with a two-quarterback system
with Sam Hunt and Chris Wil-
liams. Brown said both will play
UAB senior quarterback Chris Williams will split time behind center.
Williams started three games in 2003, but has only played in four since.
What the Blazers have to
help their green quarterbacks
is a veteran offensive line and a
talented running back in senior
Corey White.
"They're starting 17 seniors
Holtz said. "Hackney's gone, but
everybody else is back. They're going
to pose a lot of challenges for us
Switching to a two-quar-
terback system, Brown has had
to adjust his offensive schemes,
which Holtz said could present
problems for ECU's raw line-
"On the offensive side of the
ball they have changed every-
thing Holtz said. "Now that
they have a new quarterback they
run much more option. They are
spreading the field, running the
quarterback, changing their for-
mations and running out different
personnel groups. They aver-
aged 5.5 yards per play against
Oklahoma. They do a great job
of protecting the ball
Winning the turnover battle
will be key, even though both
teams won that statistical cat-
egory a week ago and still lost.
The Blazers forced four turnovers
against Oklahoma's young offense
without committing a turnover
themselves, while the Pirates
recovered two Navy fumbles, and
turned the ball over just once.
One of those fumbles was
forced by hard-hitting senior
safety Jamar Flournoy. Flournoy,
who did not play a season ago,
led the Pirates with 12 tackles
at Navy and knows that the
Blazers will try to establish the
run against ECU's young front
They'll just line up and try to
power it and play smash mouth
football, but that doesn't matter
Flournoy said. "We just gotta go
out, be aware, and everybody do
their job and we'll play great

of the line - referring to the 6-5,

Old routines require renovation.
To handle a heavier load, edit
out the activities that you can do
without, make a schedule and
stick to it this time.

The key is to give the glory to
others. By doing that, you gain a
larger perspective. This, of course,
gives you another advantage.
You will be the bigger person
and look good at the same time.
If your objectives involve others,
get them on your team. Why
should you have to do everything?
That just doesn't make sense.
You're learning quickly, so don't
even worry if you don't have all
the answers. Figure out where to
start looking for them, and jump
into the game.
Fixing up your home is a way to
buy a few things you like, and
making your savings account
grow simultaneously. It's a
wonderful thing.
You're advancing to the next
level, so there will be more things
to learn. Also pay attention to a
coach you know you can trust.
You like to listen to all points of
view and encourage compromise.
You don't have to do that all the
time, however. It's OK to have
strong opinions, just be careful
how you express them there
are some sensitive people out
there so be careful.
You have the authority now.
Show you also have the wisdom.
Don't waste your time or money
on shiny trinkets. Go for the
good stuff.
You get to be the referee, a job
you do very well. You're tested,
too, but you can stay cool. Don't
let them see you sweat.
One of the ways you keep the
advantage is by paying attention.
Don't take a rumor at face value.
Make sure you know the real
story. Getting the story from the
horse's mouth is always safer.
It seems that you have enough
money to do whatever you want.
That may be true, but if you're
smart, you'll start by paying off
your bills.
There will be resistance, so don't
go blithely off without being
prepared. Don't be stopped by
those who disagree with you.
Outwit them. You can do it.

Will this fall really be Must See TV?
The cast of 'Desperate Housewives' will be up to their old tricks beginning again on Sunday, Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. the cast of 'Grey's Anatomy' will return to ABC.
See what is going on
this fall in TV land
Every year television networks
begin advertising their new and
exciting fall television lineup
as early as April. The seasons
are barely wrapped up before
you begin seeing trailers for the
upcoming season. In the case of
shows that say their final farewell,
we are often still mourning their
loss whep a new show is advertised
as taking its place.
This year is definitely no
exception; every television network
known to man is busy airing com-
mercials about their fall lineup.
However, just in case you've been
asleep for the past couple of months
let me catch you up.
Let's start off with the newbies
of the group. Some of the most
buzzed about new television shows
this fall include "Ugly Betty
"Heroes" and "The Class All
of these shows offer a fresh and
unique plot that is sure to have you
tuning in every week.
ABC's "Ugly Betty starring
America Ferrera The Sisterhood of
the Traveling Pants) is reminiscent
of "The Devil Wears Prada" in
the fact that plain Betty is hired
to work at a glamorous fashion
magazine where she doesn't quite
fit in.
NBC's "Heroes" is generating a
lot of buzz, the show's plot is more
similar to that of a movie than a
television show. The premise of
the show rivals X-MEN in the
basic fact that the characters all
have super powers that may or may
not prove to be good for mankind.
"The Class" is a new sitcom
about a group of 20-something
friends who shared the same third
grade class and reunite nearly two
decades later will air on CBS. It
looks like to me that the show is sim-
ilar to the old favorite, "Friends
Of course every network has
their old favorite returning. You
can always count on the more
established shows to offer plot
twists and turns like no other.
These veterans know what is
needed to keep ratings high and
pull out all the stops to keep
it that way.
Some favorites returning this
fall include "Desperate House-
wives "NipTuck "Grey's Anat-
omy "House "Smallville "One
Tree Hill "ER "The O.C "The
Office "How I Met Your Mother
"Boston Legal "Law and Order
"Gilmore Girls "Cold Case" and
"Numbers" to name a few. Be sure
to check your local listings for
changes in day and time as many of
these have switched time slots.
Another group of favorites
returning this fall are reality
television programs. "Survivor
"America's Next Top Model
"Project Runway "The Amaz-
ing Race" and "Dancing with the
Stars" will once again keep audi-
ences on the edge of their seats
with new elements of surprise.
No matter what kind of televi-
sion you enjoy there will no doubt
be something for everyone to
watch this fall. Whether you want
to unwind with a good sitcom or
get wrapped up in a mystery, there
is a show for every fan.

Having a sit-down with SOJA
Band members sit around the mic for their PodCasted interview with Senior Writer Liz Fulton on Thursday night. 'Accepted' is now playing at Greenville's Carmike Cinemas on Firetower Road.
What the band had to
say in our live interview
On a tumultuous Thursday
night, with tropical storm Ernesto
drenching Greenville with its
onslaught of rain, a band came
to Pantana Bob's as it has many
times before. Driving up from
Wilmington, they had braved
Ernesto to give the students of
ECU what they really want - the
sweet, sexy sounds of reggae as
only SOJA can do it. Along with
Rachel Letter and Sarah Bell, 1
had an opportunity to sit down
with the band before their show
and listen to what they had to say
about their music, the new album
and the importance of being smart
with your music. Some of their
answers may surprise you, but the
boys from Washington, DC. are
deeply committed to the reggae
genre and the unity of music.
The Band
Jacob Hemphill - Vocals, Guitar
Bobby Lee Jefferson - Vocals, Bass
Ken Brownell - Percussion
Ryan Berty - Drums
Patrick O'Shea- Keyboards
EC: How long has the band been
JH: Eight or nine years, but
we've been on the road five or
six years. Me and Bob did talent
shows when we were kids and
decided to form a kick ass band.
EC How did you go from talent
shows to a band? a

Gainesville skapunk makes a comeback
Rocking out with Less Than Jake
The beginning of the semester is an exciting time,
but there were some great albums that came out over
the summer that made a big impression on me and I
feel obligated to share them with the student body.
One such album is In with the Out Crowd from Less
Than Jake, which was released on May '23. This was
the long awaited follow up to 2003's Anthem.
For those of you who don't know much about
Less Than Jake, I can help just a bit. First off, these
boys play music from the ska and punk genres. They
formed in Gainesville, Fla in 1992 and debuted with
initial success from Pezcore.
I have been listening to these guys play music
since their inception and have no want to ever stop
hearing their sound. I must admit that their sound was
always good and their lyrics were always happy, but
just like with anything else in life, you must change
and progress into new areas and ways of thinking.
see JAKE page B7
A sophomoric attempt
to be a summer smash
Accepted, directed by Steve
Pink and led by the likable Justin
Long, who is most recently fea-
tured in the Apple computer com-
mercials, was reported to be a film
that no summer could do without.
An anthem of sorts.
This film is about a bunch of
kids who are not accepted to any
college they applied to and decide,
as disclosed in the trailer, to fake
a bogus college in order to avoid
further disappointment from their
parents. When they go a little too
far with their make-believe Web
site, hundreds of other rejected
kids unexpectedly end up enroll-
ing in their school.
Those who are rejected by
every other school find a home
with Bartleby Gaines (played by
Justin Long) and his co-founders,
and of course the villain steroid-
enhanced conformist turbo frater-
nity types who seek to humiliate
and bury the oddballs for the juve-
nile crime of being different.
But that aside, Acceptedhas fun
with the material and even asks
a few decent questions about the
expectations placed on college kids
and the itinerary of higher educa-
tion. Not that it is a brainteaser
by any means, but Accepted is not
just another mindless teen comedy
because it actually addresses a
common anxiety among young
people, which is finding a purpose
after high school.
As far as teeny-bopper movies
go, this one sets no new standard
of excellence. It has the common
formula of cheap gags, a romance
sub-plot and an inspirational mes-
sage, the same formula that has
been plugged into comedies for
years. This film tries to capture
the stereotypical party-hardy
mindset that college bound stu-
dents envision prior to attending
college. This is certainly not a
movie that will take your breath
away, but it definitely has its hand-
ful of enjoyable moments.
The story is brainless and
unbelievable, the characters are
all stereotyped and there is noth-
ing real in this movie. None of the
relationships are convincing and
the ending is far too contrived.
The only parallel to a real college
experience in Accepted is when
Dean Lewis, the fake dean of
South Harmon Institute of Tech-
nology, says to a set of parents.
"Look, we throw a lot of
fancy words in front of these
kids in order to attract them to
going to school in the belief that
they're gonna have a better life,
Aid we know that all we are doing
is breedmg a whole new genera-
tion of buyers artd sellers, pimps
and whores and indoctrinating
them into a life long hell of debt
and indecision
Even though 1 would not
pay to see it again, this film was
worth seeing once ifyou like crude
humor and stupid situations.

Mel Gibson: An introspective celebrity profile
Passion on the Skids
Remember when Sergeant
Murtaugh told Riggs that God
hated him in the beginning of
Lethal H'eapon and Riggs said,
"Hate him back. It works for me
Mel Gibson has always been
loony. That is why his roles were
carried out with such a degree of
Playing a depressed alcoholic
with a poignant death wish is not a
stretch for someone who spent the
majority of his years staring down
the barrel of an empty bottle.
Anyone surprised at Gibson's
drunken rambling should just pop
in one of his films. Forget about
characters, isn't this the same guy
that made The Passion of the Christ?
The film that still sponges
money from poor midwestern
families by selling items like
"The Passion Nail" on a Web site
designed to fit the mentality of
their dial-up connections.
Did we forget that Gibson
went on the record saying that the
Holocaust was a numbers game
back in 2004?
No one was screaming blas-
phemy then, so why act all dumb-
founded now? The real impiety
resulting from the incident is that
ABC was reportedly in the works
with Gibson on a Holocaust mini-
series. Did they really have to hear
him say that "the Jews are respon-
sible for all the wars in the world
to come to the conclusion that he
was unfit for the project?
I'm not going to knock Gibson.
He's a good actor. There is no need
to boycott his talent because of
a couple of mishaps. If he hadn't
been such a character, he might
not have landed his breakout role
as 'Mad' Max Rockatansky.
The casting agent saw him
straggle into the film's open call
with a swollen nose and a broken
jaw (after a drunken bar fight)
and gave him the part on the spot.
His reasoning behind the decision
was, "we need freaks
Behind Gibson's doe-like eyes
lies a renegade freak, one who runs
through life with a manic passion
for whatever gets his mind off the
bottle. His priorities got mixed up
after a religious epiphany that he
believes saved his life. It's a sad
truth, but too many years spent
partying can leave you senile at
an early age.
Stay tuned to "Enter-
tainment Tonight" and those
kind of shows for more of his
crazy, unpredictable antics.

Album Permanent Revolution from Catch 22
Fine New Jersey skapunk
In an age of mindless pop
culture and disposable psycho-
babble, I needed a break from the
monotony and therefore looked
to the realms of ska and punk.
New Jersey has provided such
an escape in the form of Catch
22's album Permanent Revolution.
Formerly known as the band
Gimp, lineup changes, and a vision
to integrate ska into the band's
punk foundation, the subsequent
creation of Catch 22 has consis-
tently overcome odds and even
their own personal decisions.
Through thick and thin,
they remained a band. Their
newest release, Permanent Revo-
tlution, is a bit of a dark depar-
ture from their lighter style of
c song delivery. The vocals are
I thoughtful and the guitar work
8 is excellent, which lends only
to the artistry put into the cre-
ation of their newest venture.
The album sports some-
thing very interesting upon the
back cover; year dates. This is to
emphasize the fact that this album
was based on Leon Trotsky. If you
don't know who that is, pull out
a history book from underneath
your bed and look up Russia.
For example, the year Trotsky
was exiled to Alma Ata was
1928, which has inspired the
song with the same title and
corresponding year. This is an
interesting theme choice for an
album to follow in any genre,
and a first for yours truly to see.
With the well-received albums
Keasby Nights (1998) and Alone in
the Crowd (2000), Catch 22 was
not a small band by any stretch,
but rather one who is constantly
reinventing themselves.
The song most likely to be
the single of this album is "The

BJ: We got into reggae music and
found that we could play music

JH: And we always believed in

EC: How did you guys get the name ?
JH: It's an Israel vibration song,
and it's also a Peter Tosh song.
We kind of thought it described

Jehovah is the literal meaning.

EC: What other things influence

JH: All the things that are going
around lately. I write a lot of
lyrics so whatever is going on in
my life goes into the songs.
KB: It's our life eiiperiences and
it's a lot of what young people
go through. Being in D.C I
think has a lot to do with our
music. We're very aware of the
situation in D.C. and how those
decisions there affect the rest of
the world.
EC: So you would say a lot of
politics are involved?
BJ: There is definitely politics
involved but we try to stray
from it. Politics is what it is, it's
everywhere. We just want to
realize the conscious world view
of what's really happening out
EC: Can you tell me some things
about your new CD?
KB: I have two songs that I sing
on it. We've got some guest stars
and got to experiment with some
new stuff and try some new styles.
BJ: It's dynamic, it's definitely
very dynamic. We mix it up a lot
and just to name a few guests we
have Go Go Mickey from the leg-
endary go-go band Rare Essence.
PO: We're from DC. so Go Go
is one of our big deals and they
don't have that kind of music
down here.
KB: There's a horn section with
some of our good friends from
Puerto Rico. It's just cool stuff.
EC: So it's your third CD and

BJ: Get Wiser.
EC: With it being your third CD
and being pretty successful, do
you have any advice for musicians
starting out in the business?
JH: Don't spend all the money
you get from shows on dumb
stuff. Put it back in the band to

This notion brings me to their
newest release and the way the
lyrics are finally reflecting grown
men who have played together for 15
years. They aren't constantly about
partying and having fun; somewhere
along the line, they grew up.
Now don't get me wrong, these
boys still know how to throw it
down with some of the best of them.
They just seem to be more cerebral
and aware of their surroundings.
This album's lyrics reflect their
individual stories, struggles and
own regrets.
As an example, "Mostly Memo-
ries is an ode to personal reflection
upon possibly doing something
different and not missing the boat,
while "Everything is Overrated is
more of a jaded look at their world
that has bef n created by themselves
and others who generally just want
more from life.
"Got to let her Go is more of
a personal realization that you can't
keep living in the past and thinking
the dreaded "What if?" Their advice
seems to be instead of'What if' try to
think, "Why not?" You must be able
to be happy with yourself, and the way
things have turned out are just part of
something bigger and better for you.
While the lyrics have changed,
the music has remained the same
with some changes from experi-
mentation with different instru-
ments and tempos. It appears that
not even Less Than Jake can go
400 miles per hour. However, their
music is still very hard driven by the
drums and thrashing punk guitar
and thumping bass lines.
This album is by far one of the
best they have made in their career,
I would easily say since Losing
Streak. I can only hope in a world of
disposable bands and a fickle audi-
ence that bands like Less Than Jake
can remain plausible and maintain
some semblance of staying power.
I recommend this album to any
Less Than Jake or skapunk enthu-
siast in the hopes of showing many
what real good music is all about.

Party Song However, the song
that truly stands out to me on the
album is "The Spark This song
is a ska and reggae ballad with
quite a nice sound.
Imagine, the vocals sound
like The Pietasters, the horns
sound like Hepcat and the feel of
the overall music in this song in
entrancing. I truly dig this ska
punk collection and the versa-
tility that this band utilized in
designing this album.
Oh yes, this album also start;
with a very dark piano piece,
which flows into the beginning
of the first song. This piano
accompaniment is a very unex-
pected contribution to any punk
album, especially any of Catch
22's albums.
There is also a song with a
very lounge lizardjazz feel to
it. Yet again, I was amazed when
listening to this type of song on
a punk album. This type of thing
is truly new to any kind of music,
and I believe they call it creativity.
This album receives a hard
earned A- for the creative aspects
and the thoughtful layoutvocals,
and in true punk form, the total
time of the CD is about 33 minutes.
It does have some songs that
are the same tempo and therefore
come off as blending into previous
songs. So, I do recommend that
everyone at least go out and buy
Paris Hilton's new album just
kidding. I recommend this album
as an alternative to a rash that
may last a lifetime.
