Media Watch and Yale Notes
Mine only tells me Im hungry
Listen to the small voice inside you that says,
Hillary Clinton, YDN, 5/21/01
When youve got nothing to say, scream it
All methods of making a point had been exhausted,
and for that
reason, we had to make it very high-profile.
David Corson-Knowles, YDN, 6/10/01
Its funny because its true
Im usually the first voter in the
96-year-old in a wheelchair told the mayor. Then could you
or three times you think? the smiling mayor asked.

Thatll teach those repressed librarians!
We thought making out in CCL was a political

Arent we all?
Harrison is like a cross between William Blake and
in that his vision is so humane, and he is deeply disturbed by
Matthew Nickson, YDN, 12/03/01
The hard life of eating out
By realizing the inconvenience of purchasing their
meals for a
day, students come to realize the hardship of not having three
meals a day
provided for them.
Benita Singh, YDN, 4/26/02
Sikhs arent Muslims, you bigot
The myriad hate crimes against Muslim Americans,
murder of a Sikh gas station attendant
Nancy Levy, YDN 9/26/01
It is true that the Chinese regime does not respect
human rights, but human rights alone cannot and should not be
the only factor
in driving American policy, nor should business
Stefano Chao, The Yale Globalist, April 2002
McVeigh and Bin Laden the real victims
Predictably, neither McVeigh or Bin Laden match the
prescribed by society and it is for this reason that
McVeigh was executed,
and that Bin Laden, if found, must be killed.
Benjamin Landy, Journal of Contemporary Culture, Vol. 3,
Youre even better at mass murder!
The Chinese cultural crisis is ultimately misled, but
it is not
unfounded. There is no rational reason to feel inferior to a
that gave rise to Auschwitz.
William Han, The Yale Globalist, April 2002
Separate but Equal
While programs like FOOT and Freshperson
really important, I think that programs like Cultural
Connections and OIS
are extremely important for students coming from background that
has a relatively
small representation at Yale.
Raina Lipsitz, YDN, 6/10/01
How do you explain bloody fetuses in the trash?
How do you explain to [children] the bloody fetuses on
up around the building you walk by every day?
Eugene Peck, quoted in YDN, 11/29/01
It is beautiful, isnt it
The capacity of our ruling classes to appropriate even
refractory of subversive cultural figures and images for the
of the establishment agenda never ceases to amaze.
Tavia Nyongo, Continua, April 2002

Rebecca Dana, YDN, 10/23/01
I can see clearly now, the brain is gone
This section provides a general overview of the state
in Palestine after a year of heightened resistance, supplemented
by a more
existential account of the effect of the military occupation on
women giving birth, and by a theoretical conception of the
framework in play.
Continua, Vol 1, Issue 1
Failing our mission
It had been said that since 1968 Yale has trained more
than corporate CEOs.
Jacob Remes, YDN 5/1/02
Wednesdays front page article incorrectly stated
Yale professor Johnathan Weinberg was fired from the University,
accused Yale of discrimination, and that he claimed he was fired
gay. He was not fired from Yale; he just was not given tenure.
He has never
accused Yale of discrimination in any legal capacity, and he did
that he was being fired for being gay. Also the article
that most of Weinberys friends at Fieldston School were
gay. He said
none of them were gay.
Correction, YDN 11/29/01
News to me
The involvement of newspapers in the news has been a new
that has forever altered the world of journalism.

the Bible for myself and make it my own Christianity.
Ryan Alvarez, YDN 11/29/01
And about as useful
Sure, we both listen to rap, finish each others
lines from the
obscurest and most forgettable songs of the last decade or two;
are both chiller than a Icee in the dead of December.
Ameer Kim El-Mallawany, Type, Winter 2001
I love Yale because I am Yale.

The Best of Yale
It has come to the YFPs attention that after Saybrook
a carving was removed from the cornice of the Athenaeum
was a relief of two boys. One might guess that they were playing
until one gathered that they were in the Athenaeum Room and were
in a more...Greek pursuit. Someone should inform the LGBT Co-op
act of discrimination, because chances are theyre not
