On Sunday, April 25, 2004, the Capital District March for Women’s Lives Coalition, led by Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood, brought over 350 local residents to Washington, D.C. for the March for Women’s Lives. Yale activists joined over one million men, women and youth in one of the largest marches on Washington in U.S. history to “stop the erosion of women’s reproductive health and rights.” The Yale Free Press encourages anyone who has problems with government policy to march right down to Washington and yell about it. Waving flags and tooting horns in support of failing programs is a sure way to make politicians hear your intellectual arguments and take them seriously. And why not bring some dead babies along for pathos—Bush can’t handle the sight of them. It’s sure to be a winning strategy.
Yale University will be holding its 303rd Commencement on May 24th. On May 23rd, Class Day, filmmaker Ken Burns will be speaking on Old Campus. Burns’ The Civil War has won universal acclaim, as well as his Emmy Award-winning 1994 film Baseball. He is now working on a series on the history of jazz scheduled for release in the year 2000.
The Yale Free Press would like to thank graduating seniors Casey Lee, Steve Christoforou, and Sergio Vazquez, for their past contributions and roles in the swaggering cannon of ideology that is the YFP. It hopes that they will continue the wonderful career that they have begun here at Yale.
The YFP is also proud to announce the visit of Al Gore to campus last month. He spoke to Yale students about the “Climate Emergency” that we will all be facing very shortly. He made ominous descriptions of the coming collision between our civilization and the earth. Now all Yale students know that human growth is bad and we should starve the people in India and China because they’re using too much energy. The YFP may also limit future publications in order to increase tree growth and decrease carbon dioxide levels.
If liberals used the words “competence,” “intelligent,”
“not-stupid” any more…
There’s no such thing as a stupid question. Really.
The problem with a thinking administration...
“The trouble in Iraq is that the Bush administration thinks that
groups with political motivations are fighting
against the creation of a democratic Iraq...”
Government corruption should only be a last resort.
Everyone loved how slick Clinton handled Kosovo.
Imperialism with a smile?
Did you know Kerry was President of Massachusetts?
