Almost every Friday or Saturday night that I’ve been out, I’ve seen at least one or two fights, mostly involving inebriated students who’ve just left the bar. Generally, it stays on the street, but sometimes, it’ll be inside a campus building. Last weekend, a fight broke out in front of the Walkhome kiosk.

Ms. Gervan mistakenly received a copy of an e-mail in which the editor of The <em>Journal</em> told his staff, in strong terms, not to write about “these people.” Ms. Gervan has accepted the editor’s apology, but the issue deserves attention.

The women’s soccer team earned a berth in the national championships with their provincial semifinal win over the Western Mustangs last Saturday. Striker Eilish McConville led the Gaels to a 3-0 victory with her third hat trick of the season.
For some, the word feminism conjures images of angry man-haters with a penchant for flannel and the biting need to critique patriarchal institutions. Why? I blame it on the rise of radical feminism throughout the 1960s to the ’80s.
