In response to the Robin Sanborns letter about this years election being one for the history books - that may very well be the case (Election is one for the history books, SN 11/17). But the real problems are overlooked and the wrong things are being glorified.
Ive recently been reminded of why I get so excited for the holidays. One of my cousins is pregnant so the whole Schewe clan - 40 people strong - gathered for a co-ed baby shower.We spent some time together as we celebrated the future arrival of a new cousin and it gave me a taste of the holidays ahead.Thanksgiving always was such fun because it meant my siblings would be coming home from college and we would be making a pilgrimage to Detroit for the annual feast with the extended family.

The Black Student Alliances approach to prevent conflicts at on-campus events will be an effective means of obtaining peace for all students.At its first town hall meeting Thursday, BSA proposed eight community standards, including limiting events to MSU students only, having zero tolerance for interruptions and enforcing rules against loitering.In addition to only allowing MSU students to attend these events, BSA also plans to improve crowd control and deny admission to those who have previously caused conflict.BSA wants to establish annual town hall meetings so black students can voice opinions and share ideas with student and administrative groups.BSA has worked with other organizations, such as the MSU Department of Police and Public Safety, National Panhellenic Council, Coalition for Multicultural Education and residence hall black caucuses after recent outbreaks of violence occurred at events sponsored by black student organizations.Concerns have heightened after at least two fights broke out at Campus Center events this semester.
