Delta Delta Delta fights back against ‘fat talk’ Lori Van Buggenum, Women’s Resource Center Program Director, talks about Fat Talk Free Day on the UA Mall on Wednesday. Fat Talk Free Day encouraged people to take a pledge to get rid of the thin ideal and promote a healthy ideal.
By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Students pledged to ban bodybashing language during Fat Talk Free Day on Wednesday. The UA Panhellenic Council collaborated with Campus Health Service and the Women’s Resource Center to promote healthy body image among students. An event on the Mall provided information about “fat talk” and a pledge for students to sign. Stacy Nadeau, who participated in the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty, gave a speech in the evening. “Fat talk” includes personal

criticism of one’s appearance or focusing on size rather than health. “They’re statements in casual conversation that reinforce it’s better to be thin,” said Laura Orlich, a mental health clinician for Counseling and Psychological Services, who works with students with eating disorders. “All of that goes to being dissatisfied with the bodies that we have.” People can reinforce the “thin ideal” without calling someone fat. “Also, things like ‘Oh my gosh, you look great. Have you lost weight?’” said journalism se-
nior Mari Kelly, vice president of risk management for the UA Panhellenic Council. Kelly worked with the other organizations to model the event after National Fat Talk Free Week, which is held annually by her sorority, Delta Delta Delta. Fat Talk Free Day was a Sorority Safe Night event, but was alos open to the community. Kelly said “fat talk” is commonly used among college students. “It’s something that’s not addressed, unfortunately, as much as it should be,” Kelly said. SORORITY, page 5
AZ House candidates argue ASUA plans education By Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
for next concert
Republican Ruth McClung and Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva agree on the important role of education. During a debate between Congressional District 7 candidates, Grijalva, the four-term incumbent representative , called education the “great equalizer” and said it is the “civil rights issue of this era.” McClung, his Republican challenger, agreed that education can play the role of an equalizer, but also argued that simply throwing money at the problem wouldn’t bring satisfactory results. McClung and Grijalva both agreed that existing “No Child Left Behind” policies need to be reworked, with Grijalva calling them a “mess” and McClung saying the policy was a “blanket generality.” “We shouldn’t shortchange the children of this nation,” Grijalva said. For Libertarian candidate George Keane, the issue comes from the very top: the U.S. Department of Education. Keane stated that since the U.S. Department of Education was founded, per capita student spending in the United States has increased threefold while test scores have remained static. He also said higher per student spending does not translate into better test scores. He cited that Washington, D.C., schools have some of the nation’s lowest test scores despite the highest per-student spending rate in the nation. Independent candidate Harley Meyer said parents need to embrace a larger role in their children’s education and to embrace the “tremendous amounts of influence” they wield. “I don’t believe people realize the power of the parent,” he said.
Senators believe early marketing important By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Posters took center stage at Wednesday’s ASUA Senate meeting. Sen. Taylor Bilby’s Tanzbödeli poster funding request, which aimed to advertise donating art to the April 1 culture festival to support breast cancer research, got tabled until next week pending more information. “I’m a firm believer that if you are going to throw an event, you need to market and market early,” Sen. Chad Travis said. He added that without a delineated budget of sponsorships and spending, he was unable to support funding it. Sen. Dominick San Angelo agreed. “A proposed budget of the whole event would be helpful so that we will know how much money we will be allocating to Tanzbödeli as a whole,” San Angelo said. ASUA, page 5

Pride Alliance hosts game to celebrate Coming Out Week By Abigail Richardson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Students of all sexual orientations came out to play Drag Bingo, one of the many events ASUA Pride Alliance puts on during Coming Out Week, on Wednesday. Ajia Simone, also called Tucson’s Black Cat, is a well-known drag queen in the community. She em-
ceed the event and provided fun and laughter for those who attended. “O-69,” Simone said. “Now say it with me … Ya’ll act like you don’t know what that is. Looks like I’m going to have to help you with that later.” Simone continued to read aloud bingo letters while making jests at those walking by and those who were playing.

physiology freshman When is it okay to date or talk to one of your good friends’ ex, or is it ever okay? You have to ask the person, like your friend, because if they are not cool with it then you totally shouldn’t do it. But it’s really up to them; they kind of have, like, dibs because they’ve been there first, ya’ know? Have you ever been on either end of that — where someone has dated your ex or you’ve dated theirs? No, not really. Never really been an issue. So going through your week, what is the absolute worst night for you? I would say Monday night because I have a lot of school and I have my bio lab, which is like three hours. It is ridiculous. Do you just constantly have your nose in the books, or what? Yeah, pretty often, but obviously if you get stuff done earlier then you have more time to do whatever you want. What is your dream career path with the physiology major? What do you want to do? I want to be a plastic surgeon and gender reassignment. Very interesting, I’m thinking L.A.? Probably L.A. or Florida. Definitely Miami or something. So who do you think has the worst plastic surgery ever done on them? I don’t know. I heard Megan Fox actually had a nose job, which I’m surprised by because she’s really pretty, but I guess her nose was bigger. But, I don’t know; I really don’t know that much about celebrity surgery botches. You should probably, like, research into that since you are going to be fixing them. Do you know who Nicki Minaj is? What do you mean Minaj? That’s her last name. She’s a rapper. I’ve never heard of her, sorry. What is the point of this interview though? You are just getting put ‘On the Spot’, hence the random questions. So you’re probably going to be, like, famous after tomorrow. Whoa, that’s pretty cool. I’ll let all my friends know. —Caroline Nachazel

Love may be as good as morphine
That rush of good feelings you have in the first few months of being in love don’t just put you in a better mood; love may actually be a painkiller, researchers suggest in a new study in the journal PLoS ONE. “Finding pleasure in activities, and with the one you’re with, can have multiple benefits, including reducing your pain,” said senior author Dr. Sean Mackey, chief of the Division of Pain Management at Stanford University School of Medicine. The study looked at 15 undergraduates – both men and women – between ages 19 and 21, all of whom were in the “early phases of passionate love,” having been in a relationship anywhere from a few months to a year. This is a small sample size, but not unusual for a study involving functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Participants were asked to bring in photos of their beloved and an acquaintance who was
equally attractive. While viewing these photos, a computercontrolled stimulator made them feel pain in the palm of their hand that felt akin to burning oneself on a hot pan, but in a safe way and without causing any actual damage, Mackey said. They were also asked to answer distracting questions while the pain was applied. The fMRI scanner allowed researchers to examine what brain systems were involved during each condition. The magnitude of pain relief when participants thought about their beloved was comparable to morphine and other clinical painkillers, Mackey said. However, he cautioned that this is not a study about chronic pain, merely pain applied for 30 seconds at a time in an artificial setting. The results suggest that thinking about your beloved and having a non-love-related distraction lower the perception of pain, but the love effect
involves entirely different brain systems, Mackey said. This speaks to the complexity of the human brain, he said. Distraction involves high level cortical systems that are involved with conducting tasks, Mackey said. Love, on the other hand, involves systems dependent on dopamine, a brain chemical that causes us to feel good and crave things. The dopamine rush also happens upon eating a piece of chocolate, or, in more extreme forms, taking a hit of cocaine or heroin. Drugs that directly engage this brain chemical tend to be highly addictive, he said. Other recent research also has described love as an addiction. A Journal of Neurophysiology study suggested that love involves the same area of the brain associated with cocaine and nicotine addiction; that’s one example of recent findings on the science of love. — The Chart-CNN.com

Clinic blasts calls for more protection in porn industry MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE LOS ANGELES — The announcement this week that an adult film performer tested positive for HIV prompted a California clinic Wednesday to blast AIDS activists and public health officials for using the incident to renew calls for mandatory condom use and added oversight of the porn industry. “The misfortune of a patient testing positive for HIV has been turned into a tragic farce by the efforts of groups to exploit the patient for their political and financial gain,” the Sherman Oaks-based Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation said in a statement. The clinic, known as AIM, noted in the statement that it is complying with all county, state and federal laws regarding both reporting the infection and protecting patient privacy. “Under law, reporting to Los Angeles County HIV Epidemiology Program can only occur upon the return of a Western Blot test. That test was taken immediately
upon the first indication of a potential infection, but the results take one week to return,” the statement said. Last year, an Alameda County Superior Court judge issued an injunction barring a request by state workplace safety officials for the work history of a performer who had tested HIV-positive at AIM. “Through the press, the state is making the same unlawful demands again, while knowing that the state is under a binding injunction barring it from demanding access to those kinds of records,” the statement said. The statement did not include any new information about the individual who tested HIV-positive, except to say that “it is impossible to know if the patient acquired the HIV virus from private conduct or on-camera activity.” AIM officials have so far refused to release the patient’s gender, the companies he or she worked for, when they received the positive test result or how many people have been quarantined as a result.
Supreme Court struggles with DNA testing for inmate MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court struggled Wednesday with a life-or-death question for Hank Skinner, a Texas deathrow inmate: Whether a defendant convicted long ago has a right to new DNA testing of old evidence. Skinner, who was an hour away from execution in March when the high court intervened in his case, was convicted of a triple murder that happened on New Year’s Eve in 1993. Long after his conviction he asked to have DNA tests on much of the crime scene evidence, including two bloody knives, a towel and the swabs and hair samples taken from one of the victims, Twila Busby. District Attorney Lynn Switzer refused to allow the testing, saying the request came too late. Skinner’s defense lawyer did not ask for the DNA testing at the time of his trial, once it had been shown that his client was covered with victims’ blood when he was arrested. Skinner appealed in the Texas state courts and federal courts, but he could not win a ruling ordering the further testing. Texas, like the other states, adopted a new law in the past
decade that permits some DNA testing, but a judge ruled Skinner did not qualify because his trial lawyer opted against the extra testing. “We are seeking access to evidence that has never been tested,” said Robert Owen, a Texas law professor, representing Skinner. Students from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism investigated Skinner’s case and found evidence that pointed to Busby’s uncle as the possible killer. She had left the New Year’s Eve party after he had made “crude sexual advances” to her. Skinner was seen dead drunk on a couch next to where she was killed. Last year, Skinner sued in a last minute bid to have the DNA tested, but he lost in the lower courts. During Wednesday’s arguments, the justices sounded split and uncertain of how to proceed. Several of them noted the court has frowned upon opening the door to whole new appeals at the end of a long case. “How do you get around Osborne?” asked Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Just last year, the court in a 5-4 decision ruled against William Osborne, an Alaska rapist, who unsuccessfully sought DNA evidence to rebut his earlier conviction.

The capsule carrying Manuel Gonzalez, a rescue specialist, prepares to enter the San Jose mine, near Copiapo, Chile, on Wednesday, to aid in the rescue of the 33 miners trapped in the mine for 70 days.
Chilean mine drama comes to a charmed end after 69 days MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE The dramatic and emotional rescue of miners trapped almost a half-mile below ground ended Wednesday night with Luis Urzua, 54, ascending to the surface in the now-battered Fenix capsule that had pulled 32 of his colleagues to freedom before him. Urzua, a foreman in the mine, had reportedly assumed the mantle of leadership from the beginning of what became a 69-day ordeal when the desert mine collapsed, sealing the men in a humid underground chamber. He was the last miner to leave the chamber, followed in surprisingly short order by five rescue workers who descended Tuesday to assist in the operation. The rescue work had adopted a mesmerizing, rhythmic routine, the thin capsule shimmying down and up the narrow shaft that had been drilled to reach the chamber. Each appearance at the surface delivered a newly rescued miner into the arms of overjoyed family members, reunions that were still moving with every repetition. “We have lived a magical night, a night we will remember throughout our lives, a night in which life defeated death,” declared Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, who welcomed the miners as they emerged from the rescue pod one at a time.
The pace quickened throughout the day, each miner’s appearance unleashing a new wave of raw emotion. But what only hours earlier seemed magical, also became routine. One after another, average men united in an incredible tale of survival and distinguished by each one’s unique skills and story, returned. The 55-year-old miner who led a prayer group followed the 26-year-old former security guard who helped manage packages sent down to the miners. The one who while trapped asked his wife of 25 years to renew their wedding vows was followed by the one who went underground to pay for his son’s medical school. The miner colleagues referred to as “Dr. House” after the TV character preceded the one who monitored gas levels in the pit and sent readings to the surface. Officials said initial indications were that the men were in remarkably good health. Obama also singled out the Americans who manufactured and operated the drill that reached the miners, and the NASA team that helped design the rescue capsule. Alicia Campos, whose 27-year old son Daniel Herrera Campos was pulled up 16th early Wednesday afternoon, said the first order of business after seeing her son was to take him home to southern Chile and host a Mass of thanksgiving.

Gendered treatment of breast cancer unfair to men Alexandra Bortnik Arizona Daily Wildcat
or the past 25 years, October has been the designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The website for National Breast Cancer Awareness month will tell you it’s been “celebrating 25 years of Awareness, Education, and Empowerment.” Three generations of smiling women sit beside the slogan on the site. Navigate to another part of the website, “newly diagnosed,” and a comforting tutorial-like page for those recently diagnosed will appear. In similar fashion to the home page, positioned below the slogan, “With breast cancer, education is empowerment,” is a photograph of what appears to be a mother and her daughter. Nowhere on the site is there a photograph of a man, not even on the page titled “Male breast cancer and common treatments.” While less than 1 percent of all breast cancer diagnoses are found in men, usually between the ages of 60 and 70, those men still exist. Young, middle aged and elderly women have become the faces of breast cancer. If men feel exempt from the disease, how will they know the symptoms if they do develop breast cancer? This year, Scott Cunningham, a 45-year-old man from Marion, N.C., was refused a free mammogram from a local public health clinic and was told by a clinical nursing supervisor at the Rutherford-Polk-McDowell Health Department that “federal funds for breast screening are just for women,” according to an article in the NY Daily News. In most cases, men aren’t able to detect a growth that could be cancerous due to a lack of knowledge of the symptoms related to male breast cancer. Cunningham, however, acted as most doctors would advise and was denied treatment. Rejecting Cunningham not only potentially allows for the cancer to grow and become more difficult to treat but also sends the message that men are not as entitled to receive a free mammogram, as women are. Contrary to the actions of the free clinic, breast cancer is just as threatening to men as it is to women and needs to be treated with the same caution. Former Kiss drummer Peter Criss, now cancer free, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, and “has talked publicly about the stigma and ‘excruciating’ pain associated with treatment designed for women’s bodies,” according to an article on abcnews.com. The rarity of male diagnoses should translate into hyper-awareness for men in order to make sure they can recognize the symptoms and don’t leave the disease untreated. Criss and other men fighting breast cancer shouldn’t experience feelings of humiliation or pain as if they are undergoing a women’s treatment. Breast cancer affects men. That fact alone should tell people to disassociate the cancer as solely a women’s disease. The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month website pointed out that “most women are aware of breast cancer and have a female friend or family member affected by breast cancer. Men often do not even know it is possible for them to get breast cancer, and therefore ignore the symptoms.” Isn’t this more reason to raise awareness among men and steer away from the solely feminine associations with the disease? Not only does the pink ribbon stand as the national symbol for fighting breast cancer, but the trademarked logo for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a pink oval with a darker pink outline of a woman. These details, although minor, only further exclude men from the awareness community. The pink ribbon and other forms of advertisement about breast cancer have raised awareness in the past 25 years and have been beneficial to fighting the cancer. However, the feminine character that has been attributed to the disease over the past generation has left some men entirely oblivious to the reality that they too are susceptible to the disease. Yes, women are more frequently diagnosed with breast cancer, but that doesn’t make it appropriate to gender the disease. Our society understands breast cancer as a woman, when in reality both men and women fall victim to it. — Alexandra Bortnik is a creative writing junior. She can be reached at email@example.com.

Prop. 107: Two colors of justice
If Proposition 107 is passed, the state of Arizona “shall not grant preferential treatment to or discriminate against any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education or public contracting.” Supporters of the bill argue that this amendment will end disproportional support for citizens based on gender and race, based on the confidence that any preference is discrimination for some other group. Opponents of the bill firmly assert that the passage of such an amendment will strip the state of important resources for women and minorities, programs and initiatives that seek to even the playing field for groups statistically less like to seek an education or find jobs in certain fields. Ignore all that. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, or what shade of human beige you happen to be. This isn’t a proposition to outright ban one program or another. This is bigger than that. This is an opportunity for us to set a precedent about how we feel about the issue of power and privilege in our society. You believe that certain people, due to circumstances out of their control, are obligated assistance from others to achieve
the same opportunities as others. Or you believe that all our opportunities are equally available to everyone, and that everyone is equally obligated to make use of the resources that are available to them in order to be successful. It’s impossible to have your cake and eat it too, because one side will always say that the opposing viewpoint puts someone at an unfair disadvantage. The passage or failure of this proposition won’t guarantee the destruction or endurance of any program or resources. It will change the lens through which we determine which of those programs are fair or necessary. Be brave, take a side and make a choice. You’ll see if you were right or wrong in a few years. Enjoy that tasty democracy, folks. — Remy Albillar is a senior majoring in English and creative writing.
Medical marijuana will help the sick, hurt no one
Arizonans should vote yes on Proposition 203, which would legalize medical marijuana. If approved, Arizona would become one of a number of states to have legalized the substance for medical use. Doctors have long claimed that
marijuana is an effective painkiller and boosts the appetite of its users. Patients with chronic pain or terminal illnesses argue that ingesting marijuana helps them get through the day without the harmful side effects of other medications. Opponents claim that legalizing marijuana for medical use would make it easier for kids to obtain the substance. But let’s be real; it’s already easy for kids to obtain marijuana. Users would need a prescription from a doctor and would then either grow their own or buy it from a number of dispensaries throughout the state. Opponents also argue that, if legalized, Arizona would become much like California, where dispensaries in Los Angeles are more common than Starbucks and almost anyone can get a license. This simply isn’t the case, as in the Arizona law, the restrictions are much tighter, and it’s mandated that only 120 dispensaries will be given permits to operate. Medical marijuana is hardly the demon its opponents claim it to be. There will be no increased crime or teenagers getting stoned legally, as the proposition would continue the current strict control of the substance. This proposition, if enacted, will do nothing but make life a little easier for those who are suffering, and that is why you are urged to vote yes on Prop. 203 this Nov. 2. — Andrew Shepherd is a political science senior.

‘Promiscuous Girl,’ tep aside; there’s a new queen bee in town. Karen Owen, to whom you may want to refer as “God” from this point forward, is the new poster child for bed-hopping females everywhere. Her recently leaked joke thesis, “An education beyond the classroom: excelling in the realm of horizontal academics,” includes the juicy details of hookups she had with 13 Duke athletes in her four years at the university. From these hook-ups, she compiled a F*&% List that ranks the athletes based on specified criteria. Karen’s power point sheds new light on ladies in pursuit of getting theirs. We now have to think twice before assuming that a female who engages in casual sex is nothing more than a slut, because as in Karen’s case, she could be a genius as well. Karen took an inquiry from a hook-up — “how do I rank on your list?” — and turned it into a well-thought-out exposition that makes us reconsider how we view women and sexuality. She may have had no intention for her compilation to reach more than her friend circle, but something that good couldn’t remain a secret forever. Since it went viral, Karen has received some
serious backlash. Perhaps this criticism is justifiable if you are her father or one of the presumably embarrassed test subjects who achieved a raw score below 7. If you do not fall into either of these categories, then who are you to judge her? If you don’t want to be or be with a girl labeled as someone who gets around, then don’t. It is that simple. But don’t be a hypocrite. The double standards that exist when it comes to multiple sex partners and casual sex are alarming. A man is celebrated for his various sexcapades, while a woman is supposed to save herself for a committed relationship. Where is the equality in the realm of sexuality? A woman should have the freedom to be as promiscuous as a man and not have to face repercussions more serious than a high five. I am in no way suggesting that every woman should be in the Karen Owen state of mind; let’s be real, I am as hopeless of a romantic as you can get. Even still, there is something admirable in her approach to pursuing “a degree in tempestuous frolicking (D.T.F).” She is not ashamed of her actions, nor does she feel the need to hide the details. It is also important to note that this “thesis” has some educational value in
terms of how people should understand college hook-ups. Rather than thinking she could put out in exchange for a boy’s heart, which is a common misconception among college-aged girls, Karen was conscious that each encounter was strictly a hit-it-and-quit-it situation. For that, she deserves praise. How many times have you or a friend gotten your heart broken because you thought there was something beyond shacking up going on between you and a man? I would assume the answer is far too many times. Next time, take a page out of Karen’s book and be honest with yourself. Karen will more than likely be out of the media’s eyes within the week, but keep her in the back of your mind. She can serve as a reminder that, as a female, you should not feel guilty for seeking out pleasure, whether it is from your boyfriend or the entire athletic department at your university. Do what you want, homegirl; just learn from Karen’s mistakes and be sure to avoid documenting anything that you wouldn’t want your family to see when they browse the web. — Mallory Hawkins is a communication senior.

â€˜Fat is a state of mindâ€™
Event organizers encouraged students to replace â€œfat talkâ€? with positive statements and â€œfind other ways to give compliments,â€? said Elizabeth Dake, a senior majoring in history and religious studies, an intern for the Womenâ€™s Resource Center. â€œEach person has their own healthy body,â€? Dake said. Pre-Nursing freshman Brianda Valdez learned the term â€œfat talkâ€? at the event but was already familiar with the concept. She said people use the speech in day-to-day conversations. â€œLike when you eat a lot and say â€˜I feel so fat,â€™â€? Valdez said. Valdez said she signed the pledge asking people to eliminate â€œfat talkâ€? from their conversations to â€œincrease self-esteem.â€?
ASUA continued from page 1
Biology sophomore Christina Bischoff said she regularly hears people use â€œfat talk.â€? â€œI think pretty much all the women and men I know are constantly talking about how fat they are,â€? Bischoff said. Bischoff said she notices friends using â€œfat talkâ€? when they are having a bad day or are disappointed about something unrelated. â€œI think fat is a state of mind for most people,â€? Bischoff said. She said she signed the pledge as a reminder to banish the language. â€œI know, for example, I try to be as body-affirming as possible, but once in awhile I find myself thinking, â€˜That girl shouldnâ€™t be wearing those shorts,â€™â€? Bischoff said. â€œIt just pops out.â€?
All positions filled after months
Travisâ€™ first senate project, the informational posters to be hung in residence halls, incurred delays due to Residence Life policies. â€œAllowing us to leave the posters up all year was already an exception made to us,â€? Travis said, adding the lamination costs of $58.10 would allow for better hanging and less chance of vandalism. The other concession allows the posters to be updated through the Residential Education office, rather than updated by the ASUA Senate itself. Virginia Jacobson noted to Travis in an email that the residence halls could not guarantee that the halls would leave them up all year. Also, the memos must be brought to the education office, and, if they cannot be attached, the updates will be left out for residents to access. Sen. Mary Myles, a part of the Undergraduate Council,
whose monthly meetings review curriculum universitywide, noted the approval of the new environmental studies major and aiding Pima Community College transfer students at the last meeting. The Senate also approved all three appointments to the executive and presidential cabinets. Carlita Cotton, a psychology undergraduate student, became the final appropriations board director, filling the last of the open spots in the executive vice presidential office. The board now has all seven directors who review and grant requests for club funding. The ASUA Supreme Court also gained two new members, Adam Dippel and Emily Ward, two James E. Rogers College of Law students, who now round out the judges on the court, which heads decisions for campus organizations, election disputes and ASUA governmental affairs.
DEBATE continued from page 1
Crowd disturbs closing speeches
Luke Money/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Ruth McClung, Republican candidate for Congressional District 7, meets with supporters after a debate at Pima Community Collegeâ€™s Desert Vista campus on Wednesday. All four candidates discussed important issues facing the state before the Nov. 2 elections.
The debate was sponsored by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and Pima Community College. Onlookers were seated an hour before the debate began, but the room quickly filled to capacity and security officers were stationed outside the doors to keep the over-capacity crowd from entering by the time the debate began at 5 p.m. McClung repeatedly attacked Grijalvaâ€™s support of higher government spending, namely this yearâ€™s Affordable Health Care for America Act and the federal governmentâ€™s stimulus bill. She said
BINGO continued from page 1
it was time for the government to act more like a family and adhere to a stricter budget since government spending has increased 23 percent since 2008. Grijalva responded that without decisive government action the country and the state would have fallen into a deeper recession or a depression. The candidates were asked whether they believed health care is a fundamental right for Arizona residents. Both Grijalva and Meyer stated it was, while McClung said affordability of, and access to care must be the legislatureâ€™s primary concern. Keane rejected the no-
tion, stating that Americans have a right to life and the pursuit of happiness, but not happiness itself. At the end of the debate, Keane implored audience members to cast their votes his way, saying a vote for a Republican or a Democrat is an endorsement of their policies. â€œWe need to realize that these two parties are two broken wings of the same dysfunctional bird,â€? he said. Meyer stressed his independent status, which he said was essential to adequately represent a district with around 104,000 registered independents in this district. As of Aug. 24 there were 142,283 Democrats, and 75,437 Republicans registered in District 7, according to the State of Arizona Registration Report compiled by the Arizona secretary of state. McClung closed by reiterating that the government needs to scale down and give more autonomy to state and local governments. â€œWe need the power to come back to the capable hands of the people,â€? she said. Grijalva, whose closing statements were interrupted by the crowd, reiterated his commitment to education. He also criticized McClung for wanting to extend tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans. After the debate, chants of â€œViva Grijalvaâ€? and â€œRuthâ€? echoed throughout the room for several minutes, and continued in short outbursts as the room cleared. Several protestors began to argue in the room and had to be separated by security personnel.
Players enjoyed outside venue
â€œI have gone to all the events this week, and I make new friends every day,â€? said Michael Webb, a junior and the first bingo winner. â€œI make at least one friend a day during Coming Out Week.â€? Webb is also the president of the UA chapter of a gay, bi and progressive fraternity called Delta Lambda Phi. Pride Alliance and Delta Lambda Phi support each other, he said. According to Ethan Rogers, the Pride Alliance intern and a senior, Drag Bingo has been a part of Coming Out Week for three years.
â€œDrag Bingo was a great way to lighten the mood,â€? he said. â€œSome of the events during Coming Out Week are educational and more serious. This was just more fun.â€? The bingo players did not walk away empty-handed. â€œWe gave away Starbucks gift cards, gift cards to the bookstore, tickets to Gallagher Theater, recyclable mugs and T-shirts,â€? Webb said. Lauren Draper, a family and human development sophomore, joined Pride Alliance this year. â€œIâ€™m definitely here to meet people in the community,â€? she said. â€œI
learned about Drag Bingo through some friends in the gay community and I decided to join in on the fun.â€? Draper wants to continue to meet people in the community this week and plans to attend Live Homosexual Acts, a demonstration that will take place on the Mall this Friday. â€œI was ecstatic to do this,â€? Simone said. â€œIt was really nice to have the event outside so that people could see whatâ€™s going on. Iâ€™m glad they didnâ€™t have it in a room where it would have been hidden. This way, people were able to see what the event was, ask questions and join in.â€?

POLICEBEAT By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
A UA student noticed an anti Che Guevara flyer had been taped on the exterior of the main entry door of the Economics Building on Friday, at about 10:30 a.m. At 11:30 a.m., an employee who worked in the building noticed someone had written offensive remarks on the poster. The identity of the person who put up the poster and the the person who defaced it are unknown. A University of Arizona Police Department officer spoke with the employee who noticed the poster over the phone on Monday. She said she noticed the anti Che Guevara flyer was taped to the main entry door of the Cesar E. Chavez building three days ago. Someone wrote “white bigots unite, imperialist, capitalist and racist,” and drew a backwards Swastika on the poster. The employee said she took down the flyer and was later approached by a student who said she’d seen the unmarked flyer on the door that morning at 10:30 a.m. The employee turned the flyer in to the Dean of Students Office. The UAPD officer met with an employee of the Dean of Students Office who gave the flyer to the officer. She advised him that there was no dean of students approval stamp on the back of the poster and, therefore, it had not been approved for posting. The flyer bore the logo of “Young America’s Foundation,” which is a conservative media group. It appears someone who opposes Che Guevara placed the flyer on the door and that someone who supports him wrote on it. According to UAPD, the fact that the swastika was improperly drawn alludes to the possibility that the person who drew it is not well versed in political, social or hate activities. The identity of this person is unknown. The flyer was entered into UAPD property and evidence.

Hypochondriacs, calm down. Apparently, there are elevated pollen and ragweed levels in Tucson for the next few weeks. So you’re not sick, you’re allergic. Grab some Claritin and calm down, you’ll be fine. If you want to blame someone though, blame all the midwesterners who dragged out all their stupid trees because they didn’t like the desert the way it was: dry, pollen-less, and awesome. Now, we have to deal with all the same issues those sick people in that corner of America do, where fashion is 3 years behind and cheese is a pastime. But I digress... Let’s deviate from our current crusade against the midwest and think critically about what to do this week. Sure, there is studying, and sure, there may or may not be a party or two. BUT LISTEN UP YA’LL. Cuz... there’s a free movie showing in Gallagher Theater. RED, with a ton of A-list actors, and Mary Louise-Parker (the mom from Weeds). It’s showing at 7pm on Wednesday, October 13, but be in line by 6pm (at least) to get a guaranteed seat. My thoughts on the film? Well, I’m so glad you theoretically asked. I think it’s going to be funny, actionpacked, and over the top. And in the midst of the Fall 2010 semester, I wouldn’t want anything different. The Social Network made me feel innate to mediocrity, and I’m not OK with that. I want to make a billion dollars and have Justin Timberlake steer me in the wrong direction, ultimately alienating myself from everyone I once knew as a friend. Hear that, universe? I WANT THAT.

A UA student was arrested for shoplifting and criminal damage on Monday at 11:29 a.m. At 11:06 a.m., a UAPD officer was dispatched to the UofA Bookstore. He spoke with an employee of the bookstore’s loss prevention team, who informed the officer that while using the bookstore’s video surveillance system, he observed a man enter the bookstore, walk straight to an associate, ask where the trace paper was located and go to the art supply section. Soon afterward, while looking at items on the shelf, the man appeared to ask a second man about the location of the trace paper. The second man grabbed a 9-inch-by-12-inch pad of trace paper off the shelf and handed it to him. Then the student looked at the back cover of the pad containing sheets of trace paper and checked out the price tag on it. He then tore two pieces of trace paper out and immediately left the area. The second man observed what the student had done, and he left. The student then placed one sheet of the trace paper into his backpack and then placed the other sheet and the whole pad back onto the shelf. The employee who worked with loss prevention said he saw the student walk outside the bookstore without paying for anything, and then detained him outside the bookstore. The employee told the officer that the Vellum trace paper pad had been damaged and could not be resold. The total value of the pad was $13.29. The student then explained to the officer that he had gone into the bookstore to purchase tracing paper for a class project. When he noticed the price of the paper was $13.29, he thought it was stupid to pay the amount because he needed only one piece of trace paper. So he then tore out two pieces of trace paper, placing one into his backpack. He said he then placed the second sheet he had torn from the pad back and returned the pad to the shelf. The student said he left the bookstore and that the second man who had helped direct him to the trace paper had nothing to do with the shoplifting. He was cited and released after being escorted out of the bookstore.

A bicycle was stolen from the Student Union Memorial Center on Monday at 4:16 p.m. from the west side bike racks. A UAPD officer made contact with the student who owned the bicycle. The student said he had last seen his bike when he locked it up at the SUMC and realized it was gone when he came back to get it. There was no serial number or Parking and Transportation number available. No suspects or witnesses are known at this time.

Senior defensive ends close on, off football field
Nine things to know about UA
By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT They say opposites attract. From looking at the hair styles of defensive ends Brooks Reed and Ricky Elmore, the tight mowhawk of Elmore compared to the flowing locks of Reed would make you think that the two are as opposite as can be. But once you get past the hair, you’ll notice that they’re very similar, both on and off the football field. “We’ve been around each other for so long I just really think that we know what types of moves we do and what types of football players we are so I think that’s advantage to us,” Elmore said of their comparable playing styles. Their playful back-and-forth banter off the field turns into an unspoken drive coming off the edge for the two fifth-year seniors. Both standing at least 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds, Reed and Elmore are known for being the force behind a dominant Arizona defensive line. They’ve also have had nearly identical paths as Wildcats, beginning before they arrived at Arizona. Both even had experience on the opposite side of the ball in high school. Reed was recruited to Arizona as a H-back and Elmore saw time on the defensive line, as a tight end and even dabbled at quarterback before arriving at Arizona. Now, the two ends will lead a young Wildcat defense in 2010 and compete to see who can get to the quarterback first. “We’re both trying to get there,” said Reed. “See who can get the sack first, so it’s competitive in that sense but it’s a lot of fun.” Nicknamed Hulk Hogan FOOTBALL, page 8
By Alex Williams ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT • This week, Arizona cracked the AVCA Coaches’ Poll top 25 for the first time since the second week of September. UA is at No. 25 , but the Wildcats have a chance to climb the ladder when they host USC and UCLA this weekend. Both Los Angeles schools are ranked in the top 10.Like they have all year, the Wildcats said they aren’t looking at the rankings. All year the players and coaches have had the mindset that the only poll that matters is the final one, but it has to be nice to receiving some national recognition again. • Arizona could be without outside hitter Whitney Dosty, who missed most of last weekend with an ankle injury. Dosty won’t practice until today at the earliest. She’s UA’s secondleading scorer with 241.5 points on the season. “It’s day-to-day for her,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “We need to have (her) play this weekend.”
Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Defensive end Rickey Elmore sacks Oregon State’s quarterback in Arizona’s 29-27 loss to Oregon State on Saturday at Arizona Stadium. Elmore exploded onto the scene in 2009 while fellow defensive end Brooks Reed was injured. Now that both are healthy in 2010, Elmore and Reed make one of the best pass-rushing tandems in the country.
• It also seems like some swagger might be creeping back into the Wildcats’ step. After opening 0-2 in Pacific 10 Conference play, Arizona is on a four-game winning streak, including three straight comefrom-behind wins on the road.
Arizona soccer at crossroads as it enters the meat of the Pac-10 season By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Arizona Wildcats soccer team hit a speed bump this past weekend after dropping both of its opening conference matches to Washington and Washington State. As head coach Lisa Oyen and her squad move forward, there are some wrinkles that Arizona will have to iron out if they want to make some noise in the Pacific 10 Conference.
What is the x-factor?
Sometimes, teams need that
extra player, game or play that pushes them over the edge. Arizona is currently 0-2 in the Pac-10, and holds a 4-7-2 record a little past the halfway point in the 2010 season. At times, the Wildcats have displayed the talent and potential of a very strong soccer team, playing to a 1-1 tie against once ranked Central Florida, and several times putting together strong halves of play but failing to maintain the same energy for a complete match as recently as SOCCER, page 8
• It looks like freshman middle blocker Tarryn Luafalemana is going to be redshirted this season. She suffered a foot injury in fall camp, and saw only one weekend of action before suffering a setback.“We’re talking to our compliance people to make sure that we’re following all of the right steps, and making sure that (redshirting Luafalemana) happens,” Rubio said.
• Arizona’s four-game winning streak is currently the longest in the conference. Stanford, who was previously unbeaten, fell at the hands of UCLA Saturday.

Freshman Jensen Skinner is one of the many freshmen that have carried a heavy load for the Arizona soccer team so far this season. She and fellow freshman Jazmin Ponce have had added pressure since junior Renae Cuellar went down with an injury.

Horne knows it’s his year Deep conversations between Miller and UA’s only senior get both on same page
COMMENTARY BY Bryan Roy sports writer
Alan Walsh/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Jamelle Horne was a highly-touted recruit when he came to Arizona four years ago, but his career has been inconsistent. A new attitude has given Horne hope that this will be his year.
Senior year, where did time go? “That’s what I’m sayin’,” said Jamelle Horne, the lone senior leftover from the Great Recession era of Arizona basketball. To call Horne a leftover from the O’Neill-Pennell-Miller head coaching stagger would be unfair. Leftover implies being carried along in a supportive manner with open arms. Horne hasn’t been carried. He’s gutted and survived this one himself. He’s survived freshman year, was frequently cussed out and all-butpermanently benched by interim coach Kevin O’Neill. He’s survived sophomore year as the average fan’s scapegoat
after committing crushing lastsecond half-court fouls — twice! — against the Univeristy of Alabama, Birmingham and USC that rendered everybody speechless both times. He’s survived junior year, learning a third system in as many seasons with five fabulous freshmen slowly chopping away at his playing time. Any leftover would’ve been scrapped by now — and not even Horne himself can sugarcoat that. “It’s nothing new that I take games off, or I take plays off and it’s like, ‘Why aren’t you playing as hard as you can?’” Horne said. “After a lot of film and talk with coach Miller, that’s just not going to be an option this year. “It’s either ‘You do or you don’t,’ if you want to play. And I understand that.” The senior admitted it, and that’s the first step to solving anything. The second step? Talking about it. During the offseason, Miller had deep heart-to-heart conversations with the senior.
“They were honest, they were upfront and they were demanding,” Horne said. “They all demanded not only the way I play and the way I approach things, but grades, coming to see him more, that they were going to be here and that was a great feeling and that’s exactly what I did this summer.” For any athlete to reveal that much about his situation is a rarity. Today’s athletes know the dangers of saying too much — or even the truth for that matter — and how viral their words and self-criticism can become taken out of context. But for Horne, who has always been an honest quote, to mention these personal conversations with Miller & Co. shows maturity and realization that, well, this is it. “I wanted to make sure that moving forward with our program, that it made sense for him to want to be here as a senior,” Miller said. “We had several important talks in the spring to make sure we were all on the same HORNE, page 8

DEs find friendship through rushing QBs
continued from page 7
(Elmore) and Dog the Bounty Hunter (Reed), both arrived at Arizona in 2006. The fifth-year seniors redshirted their first season as Wildcats. Since the 2007 season, both Elmore and Reed have had consistent playing time. In 2009, they combined for 12.5 sacks on the season. This season, the pressure of the defensive line has shown what Reed and Elmore can do. Their leadership will be crucial in anchoring a young Arizona defense and helping it to rebuild after an embarrissing performance against Oregon State last week. They’ve developed into a dominant tandem — Elmore has 17 total tackles and 1.5 sacks and Reed has 16 total tackles and 2.5 sacks. Their combined skills were showcased in the final minutes of Arizona’s victory over Iowa. Elmore and Reed combined to sack Hawkeye quarterback Ricky Stanzi for a loss of eight yards. Elmore credits their combined success with all the time they’ve spent together. “Just playing together for such a long time … it does add that extra dynamic piece to the puzzle that guys that have only been playing together for a year or two don’t have,” said Elmore. “Just playing together for so long kind of helps you out in that sense.” Reed and Elmore have the ad-
SOCCER continued from page 7
vantage of playing on the field, but it’s more than just logging hours on the field. It’s the experience of playing together that sets them apart. To say that Reed and Elmore are merely friends or just teammates would be an understatement. “They became real close friends and I think they’re just real tight,” said special teams and defensive ends coach Jeff Hammerschmidt. “I don’t know if they double date or anything like that, but they spend a lot of time together watching film and being around each other at team functions and stuff.” Their chemistry is obvious. For the young defense at Arizona, their leadership will be something for it to lean on. “Just a bunch of non-verbal, that’s what it’s got to be, especially in a loud stadium,” Reed said about his advantage of playing with Elmore. “At home you’ve got to be able to communicate without screaming at them because they can’t hear you.” Elmore and Reed, one of the most forceful duos in the Pac-10, have just one more shot to use their experience and friendship to their benefit. “Too long,” Reed joked about the length of playing time with Elmore as he shot him a glance while they enjoyed Gatorade together after a practice. “He’ll miss me when I’m gone,” Elmore fired back.
Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Defensive end Brooks Reed pressures Oregon State quarterback Ryan Katz during Arizona’s 29-27 loss to Oregon State on Saturday at Arizona Stadium. The Tucson-native has teamed with fellow defensive end Ricky Elmore to make one of the most fearsome combinations in the nation.
Freshmen carrying the weight for Wildcats
this past weekend. So what is Arizona’s x-factor? What pushes them over the edge in the games the Wildcats play the best? While a lot can be said for the tangible issues that Oyen has referenced, like having a strong attacking presence and keeping the back four strong, it all amounts to a recurring theme commonly mentioned in Arizona’s losses. Consistency. It might sound like a coach’s cliché, and it might sound like a broken record by now, but the ability to sustain the same level of energy from the first whistle to the last has been Arizona’s chronic hurdle this season. “It’s frustrating, we’ve shown this year we can compete with any team. It’s not necessarily something you can teach,” Oyen said on Sunday. “I think they know now that in the Pac-
10 they’re going to need to play a complete game.” Against Washington in their Pac-10 opener, the Wildcats went into halftime with a 1-0 lead and were 45 minutes away from a huge result. In the second half though, they let up four Husky goals en route to a 4-1 loss, and according to Oyen, Arizona looked like a different team. But playing with high energy won’t guarantee positive results. The Wildcats play a rigid conference schedule, and they will be matched up against elite talent that won’t be defeated by high energy alone. Despite the losing record, Arizona’s soccer program is on the right track to rebuilding a positive reputation, and win or lose, playing with high energy can play a small role establishing a new identity for the Wildcats. So instead of Oyen continu-
ing to harp on maintaining focus for a full match, it has to be the Arizona’s own competitive drive on display in each match that will lead them to a respectable conference record.
Freshmen impact by the numbers
Arizona’s 2010 recruiting class has wasted no time earning playing time, making up the majority of the starting 11 Wildcats on the field. Collectively, the freshmen have combined for over half (54.8) of Arizona’s shots offensively, and currently six firstyear Wildcats have worked their way into a starting job. “They’ve played with sophistication and maturity,” Oyen said. Jensen Skinner and Jazmin Ponce remain in the Topdrawersoccer.com’s College Freshmen Top 100 at 57th and 81st, respectively.

Senior tries to make it right
page. We asked Jamelle to do a number of different things and he’s done everything. So far so good.” I asked Horne whether it was difficult buying into the system last year having a third coach in as many years. “Oh, oh yeah,” Horne said while nodding. Horne then went on to talk about the difficulty of learning the different terminologies of new coaches.“It’s really tough to understand what’s going on in practice, and you get to the game and it’s even worse. This year there’s less questions and just getting stuff done. “A guy messes up,” Horne added, “and we say, ‘Don’t worry, we went through this last year.’” So that’s what it comes down to: A little continuity and familiarity in Horne’s diet. It’s hard to imagine many other players who have experienced the extreme ups and downs both on and off the court that Horne endured. His freshman and sophomore year media days
included opening statements from Lute Olson — who ended up never coaching Horne. Last year Miller overhauled everything. This summer Horne stuck around with a clear future. He weighs in at 220 lbs — up from 208 a year ago — thanks to rigorous off-season conditioning. Miller said, “I can’t say anything but positives in terms of describing what he’s done from the end of last year.” Off the court, UA junior Kyle Fogg said the team wants to spend more time together, whether it’s bowling or going to the movies — a sharp contrast to last season. “We’re more brothers this year than we were last year,” Horne said. “We had a long summer together.” Now that the comfort level is there, maybe the sense of urgency will follow. — Bryan Roy is an interdisciplinary studies senior.

TIRED OF THE DESERT HEAT? THE DAILY WILDCAT WILL COOL YOU OFF.
Favre and Vikings monitoring elbow ailment; Jackson getting more reps in practice MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS MINNEAPOLIS — Brett Favre has admitted that in hindsight, he probably made a mistake in 2008. Instead of trying to play through a torn biceps tendon in his throwing arm during his one season with the New York Jets, he should have shut himself down and accepted the end of his consecutive games streak. Only Favre didn’t do that. After leading the Jets to an 8-3 start, the quarterback injured the biceps but continued to play and New York stumbled to one victory in its final five games and missed the playoffs.
“Should I have sat down, taken some time off?” Favre said last week in a conference call with New York reporters. “Hindsight would say yeah, but I was determined to lead that team to victory and to the playoffs.” Two years later, Favre could be faced with the same type of decision. This time it’s tendinitis in his throwing elbow that clearly is affecting him and, just like two years ago, the issue is accuracy. That was obvious at times in the Vikings’ 29-20 loss to the Jets on Monday night. There were points in the second half when Favre grabbed his arm after making throws be-
cause of what he called a “pulsing pain,” and he pointed out there was inflammation and puffiness in the elbow afterward. Favre did not participate in Wednesday’s practice and beforehand, he was wearing a sleeve on his elbow that also had wires poking out to provide stimulation to the injury. He told reporters he would be willing to end his iron man streak if the injury continued to drastically inhibit him. Favre, who turned 41 on Sunday, has started an NFLrecord 289 consecutive regularseason games, a figure that is at 313 including playoffs.
“The zip and stuff is still there,” Favre said. “The accuracy was affected. There were some throws that blindfolded I felt like I could have made (against the Jets). I made some good throws, but missed on some that I don’t miss on. That’s what I don’t want to happen. From that standpoint, I don’t want to play just to play.” Favre pointed to two passes to Percy Harvin, one to Randy Moss and another to Visanthe Shiancoe as examples of balls that had good zip but either dipped or sailed on him. Favre said talk about his footwork being off is nonsense because “my feet are never in line.”

Rangers’ Washington repays club’s faith McClatchy Newspapers ARLINGTON, Texas — Baseball isn’t all that Ron Washington knows, though the national pastime has furnished the Texas Rangers’ manager with a steady paycheck for his entire adult life. He played the game basically year-round when trying to become a big-league player, and when he was trying to stay in the major leagues once he got there. When no team would pay him to play anymore, he found a spot as a minor-league coach. Then, he became a major-league coach and, for the past four years, a majorleague manager. Washington knows his lot in life is as a baseball lifer, though a mistake more than a year ago almost cost him his job and damaged his image in the game. But the fallout from a failed drug test, the results of which were leaked during spring training, wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been, and it has been an afterthought much of the season. Washington is making news now for a different reason: He’s the manager of the American League West champions and will take the Rangers into their first AL Championship Series on Friday night. “Right now, I’m the leader. I just try to lead,” Washington said Wednesday, the day after the Rangers beat Tampa Bay in a door-die Game 5 of the ALDS. “I consider myself a baseball lifer. I try to do things right. I try to tell my players what’s right. I let the game express the things I express to them, because this game of baseball will show you if you’re preaching the right thing.” He doesn’t hide from his positive test for cocaine in July 2009, after which he offered to resign. Rangers brass considered dismissing him, but thought better of it. Team president Nolan Ryan and general manager Jon Daniels saw a manager who had improved and a team that had improved with him. Michael Young, the team’s leader, said it was important to have Washington back. “We wanted the right people in place going forward. And that started with Wash,” Young said. “As a matter of fact, it starts and ends with Wash. He’s the manager, he makes the important decisions. He’s the guy that has to have the respect in our clubhouse. And he has had it for a long time now. We couldn’t be happier that he is our manager.”
More than a year later, the Rangers are planning to give Washington a contract extension once their postseason run ends. He hasn’t forgotten the support that Ryan and Daniels showed. “When you get that type of support, you certainly don’t want to let anyone down, because the problem I had earlier, I had let a lot of people down that loved me,” said Washington, who has a 331-317 record in four seasons. “But those people didn’t back off that love just because of what I did. They didn’t judge me. They just supported me. My players supported me. I just wanted to give them everything I had in the way of knowledge and the way of experience of what I’ve experienced in this game.” Washington is a candidate to be the AL Manager of the Year, though Minnesota’s Ron Gardenhire is considered the front-runner. That’s fine by Washington, who isn’t much of a self-promoter. But he is confident — in his players and the coaches who surround them. He also knows that he has improved as a manager, but always has room to get better. So when Friday arrives and the Rangers are facing the New York Yankees in a bestof-seven series that will determine the AL team in the World Series, Washington won’t be looking for the spotlight. “I don’t look for that type of praise,” he said. “I’m very solid in who I am and what I’m about, and anyone that knows me in the game of baseball knows what Ron Washington is about. “I’ve never been one who loved to pat myself on the back. I just go about my business, and I was taught that. I feel good about the people that I learned from and the ideals that I tried to issue out there from those experiences. So, I’m not validating myself in one way or another. I’ll leave that to other people to do.” While he’s not boasting about the job he has done this year, especially after nearly losing his job a year ago, he can’t say enough about the Rangers’ organization and the players and staff he oversees. He won’t forget what they’ve done for him. “I’m so proud of the organization, and more than anything I’m proud the organization accepted me for who Ron Washington is and they didn’t judge me,” Washington said. “They just tried to support me. I’m sitting here humbled. I’m very pleased. I’m so very proud of my team. I really am.”
