A plan to put video cameras at some East Lansing intersections to monitor those who run red lights could have some good results, but there are issues with the plan that need to be addressed before further action is taken. The East Lansing City Council is considering a plan to put cameras at intersections.
I have become accustomed to reading in the State News that there was no difference between Al Gore and George Bush, and, therefore, voting in the recent election was unimportant, uninspiring or unnecessary. I have not responded, because I was certain that, experience being the best teacher, it would soon become apparent that important differences do indeed exist between a candidate who is pro-choice and one who imposes a gag rule preventing doctors in clinics which serve the poor in other nations from even mentioning abortion, even if those clinics do not offer abortion services. I thought the difference would soon be evident between a candidate who appoints a Secretary of the Interior who favors the interests of developers and loggers over the need to preserve the environment for future generations would be apparent - if not immediately, then certainly when we have lost irreplaceable Alaskan wilderness to oil drilling.

Rishi Kundis article on gay marriage was excellent and indirectly addresses a major problem with some laws today, including the violation of separation of church and state (Gay marriage not complex issue to understand, SN 1/31). It makes sense religious objection should dictate whether same-sex couples are married by a priest in a church that condemns homosexuality.
I would just like to commend Rishi Kundi for his stance on the gay marriage issue (Gay marriage not complex issue to understand, SN 1/31). I feel it is about time someone stepped back and took a look at issues like this. I have been arguing this issue for years and have seemed to be on the losing side every time, however, my beliefs would not let me quit.
The sight was sweet, sitting inside Crisler Arena on Tuesday night watching my Spartans lay a walloping on our rival, the Michigan Wolverines. Not only did our team turn in an almost picture-perfect performance, the crowd support from fellow Sparty fans was amazing.
