Wake me up inside Spring Awakening portays coming-of-age in 19th century Germany through rock. By Clark Gudas @This_isnt_clark


ombine rock music and 19th century adolescents, and the result is Ivy Tech Student Production’s performance of “Spring Awakening.” “Spring Awakening” will be performed Oct. 20 to Oct. 28 at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center. Tickets starts at $5 with a student ID. “Spring Awakening,” set in late19th century Germany, follows a group of adolescent kids as they go through puberty and struggle with emotional and physical hardships. However, the understanding of concepts like depression and sexual, physical and mental health was not to the level it is today. This creates complications for the characters. “It shows the importance of educating not just adults, but especially youth when you’re going through all

those changes,” Kaila Day, actress playing Martha, said. Martha and Ilse are characters dealing with abuse in their relationships. They serve as foils — Martha represents what can happen to a person when they speak out about their abuse, and Ilse represents a situation where one stays silent. “Stepping into that mental space was kind of crazy and surreal,” Day said. “I think it’s important that people do that every once and a while to see something that you don’t see in your everyday life.” Ilse is given a vague description of sex by her parents, and as a result doesn’t comprehend the potential consequences when she has it. Moritz is a character dealing with depression, but nobody in his time understands his experiences. His struggles aren’t valid in the eyes of other characters. “When we keep people in ignorance, awful things happen,” producing artistic director and actor

playing multiple roles Paul Daily said. “If you simply arm people with knowledge, things can be averted.” The show breaks the conventional setting of the characters and story through its use of music. The score, written by pop artist Duncan Sheik, is defined by rock and punk rock sounds. “It really could read just as a rock concert,” Day said. Despite the disparity between the 21st century rock and 19th century setting, the play is still relatable, Day said. “It very much was written to kind of break out of 1890s Germany into modern day,” Daily said. “It’s still relatable hundreds of years later.” Songs such as “The Bitch of Living” deal with the emotional difficulties of love and loneliness, while other songs like “All That’s Known” convey aggravation with overbearing educational authority. Many numbers deal with adolescent sexual interest and the confusion that

Hearing technology helps students By Christine Stephenson | @cistephenson23

During deaf comedian DJ Demers' performance last week at IU, a man sitting in the fourth row used a Phonak Roger pen, which hung around his neck, to stream Demers’ voice directly into his hearing aids so he could fully hear the performance. Some audience members said they had never seen the Roger pen hearing technology outside of the performance. But through IU’s resources, it is available to any students with hearing loss who may need it. “Many students are unaware of the resources available to them, so they struggle to hear in the classroom,” said Jill von Bueren, community manager for Demers. “This can cause emotional distress, concentration fatigue, poor grades and more.” Currently, only two students at IU are using closed-captioning technology. Despite their availability, no students currently use an ASL interpreter. Shirley Stumpner, director of the Disability Services for Students, said the biggest challenge for students with hearing loss on campus is not with the technology, but with those who are struggling and have not yet reached out for help. “Students don’t want to feel different than their peers or don’t feel like they need help, so they don’t reach out,” she said. Some students don’t even know they have hearing loss.

comes with it. “Just listening to the soundtrack alone, it made laugh, cry, scream,” Day said. “It really sinks its hooks in you.” The musical version of “Spring Awakening” was written in 2006 and adapted from a play of the same name written in 1891. The show has won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has been performed in three separate tours across the United States. This production is directed by IU graduate David Anspaugh, who directed films “Hoosiers” and “Rudy.” Despite the heavy subject matter, the show forces viewers to question whether viewers are serving as good role models for the young and whether they are making a better society for the next generation, Daily said. “I want people to appreciate the honesty of it all,” Day said. “I want them to be more honest with themselves and with those in their lives.”


IU begins season with tri-meet in Florida By TC Malik | @TCMalik96


D.J. Demers performs Oct. 10 in the Whittenberger Auditorium. Demers performed his stand-up comedy set at no cost to the listeners. Demers' comedy centers on his observations and experiences while living with and without his hearing aids.

“A lot of the time, you think others are having the same problem as you, but they’re not,” Stumpner said. Stumpner said they are always looking to help students overcome obstacles through the Phonak device and other hearing technology available, but only after they reach out. Students can contact the Disability Services for Students over the phone, on the website or through a walk-in appointment at their office. “Our job at DSS is to remove any extra barriers that students with hearing loss might face,” Stumpner said. “Even a case of mild hearing loss can affect a person greatly.” Although the comedy performance only highlighted the use of

the Phonak device, there is a handful of options available for students in the classroom with hearing loss. What the student chooses to use usually depends on the severity of his or her hearing loss, Stumpner said. “Before we even suggest any possible solutions to the student, we need to determine how serious it is,” she said. “Some cases can be solved by simply sitting at the front of the classroom, but some need the help of hearing aids or even closed captioning.” In the use of closed captioning, teachers will wear a lavalier SEE DEAF, PAGE 2

The season is finally here for the IU swimming and diving team as it travels to Gainesville, Florida, to take on the University of Florida and the University of Texas. Florida's and Texas' men's and women's teams are both ranked inside the top-20 of the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America . Day one of the meet will start at 6 p.m. Friday and the second and final day will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday morning. The IU's men’s team will have a top-10 meet on its hands with Florida and Texas, as all teams are ranked inside the top six. Texas is ranked No. 2 in the country, while Florida and IU aren’t far behind at No. 4 and No. 6, respectively. Head Diving Coach Drew Johansen said this type of competition early in the season gives the team a chance to prepare right out of the gate. “To be able to measure up against the top divers in the country, as early as possible, it’s just going to prepare them and focus their training as we get ready for championship season," Johansen said. One main storyline heading

into the tri-meet is the six freshmen on the diving roster that make up one of the top recruiting classes in the nation. “We have a group of veteran divers mentoring and working with one of the better recruiting classes in the country," Johansen said. "The best recruiting class I’ve had since I’ve been here at IU." The freshmen were a topic of interest for Johansen, as they will be experiencing their first collegiate meet. Johansen said it will be quite different from what they went through during high school. The team will fly to Orlando, Florida, and bus to Gainesville on Oct. 19 and practice during the afternoon to prepare for the weekend. However, before the team gets to practice, they will face a unique set of distractions. White nationalist and President of the National Policy Institute, Richard Spencer, plans on giving a speech Thursday night at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for Performing Arts on the University of Florida campus. The center is approximately two miles from the Stephen C. O'Connell Center Natatorium, SEE SWIMMING, PAGE 5

Traditional Indian dancer comes to IU Emily Eckelbarger | @emeckelbarger

Emotions flicker across Tanya Saxena’s face in the blink of an eye when she’s dancing. In one second, her face is rapturous. The next, mournful. But if there’s one emotion she wants to show her audience, it’s happiness. “Personally, I hope they see the joy I feel when I dance,” she said. Saxena, 25, is a full-time dancer and dance instructor from Delhi, India, who dances in the Bharatanatyam tradition, the oldest form of classical Indian dance. She performed at the Global and International Studies Building Oct. 10 as part of her tour across the United States to perform Bharatanatyam dance. The performance, which brought in a wide range of people, was put on by the Dhar India Studies Program. Michael Dodson, the director of DISP, said the recital was organized to promote understanding of Indian culture. “It’s a really great way to appeal to people who potentially have a passing interest in India,” he said. “There’s something here to show the depth to Indian culture.” Saxena also sees dance as evocative of India’s diversity. “It’s very rich in diversity, and its diversity is reflected in the classical dances,” she said. The dance form, which is 2,000 years old, started in a region of southern India. Originally, it wasn’t a form of entertainment. Young girls, 13 or 14 years old, would perform it as a form of devotion to Hindu gods. Saxena first danced tap and jazz but switched to Bharatanatyam when she was 11. Something struck a chord. “I took to it,” she said. “My body took to it. I found it easier to do, easier to relate to.” She didn’t realize she wanted to dance full time until college, thinking it was just a hobby, she said. “I felt like if I didn’t give this dance my full time, I wouldn’t grow in the way I wanted to,” she said. “It’s been a long, long journey.” Saxena takes two hours or so to put on makeup and get dressed for perfor-

mances. She performs in a fitted sari, with flowers plaited into her hair. On her feet, she wears anklets with tiny bells on them, called ghungroos, that jingle lightly as she pads across the floor. When she strikes the floor with her feet, the bells add another percussive dimension to the music. Getting into her outfit and makeup is a process that could be tiring if it didn’t help her get into the headspace for her performance, she said. “In that entire two hours, if you focus and sort of go through the motions, it changes your mindspace,” she said. “You start feeling more and more like a performer as it’s going on.” She’s young for someone dancing in the Bharatanatyam style. Most Bharatanatyam dancers reach their peak in their 40s, Saxena said, after a life of experience and soul-searching to inform their dance technique. The dance style is narrative, drawing on stories and concepts from Hindu philosophy. Despite its ancient nature, Saxena thinks it’s still relevant. “I feel like these stories are reinterpreted because the dance has changed and evolved so much from the temple tradition to the proscenium stage,” she said. “I feel like even though we tell these stories we tell them in a manner that is relevant to today’s time.” In her performances, Saxena has several tools. There are her hands, which she calls the alphabet of the dance language. Different hand positions convey different messages. She also uses a wide range of facial expressions and expressive postures. The storytelling methods are flexible, but the story itself is consistent. “The usage isn’t fixed,” she said. “It is more the idea that’s fixed, and what you’re trying to say through the piece is fixed.” Since the 1930s, Bharatanatyam dancing has undergone a revival in India. Saxena hopes that her dance will translate to American audiences. “What I hope the audience takes away is a sense of what the dance is about, about the possibilities of the dance and what we try to do in the dance form,” she said. “I want to connect with the audience.”

Prism provides a community lesson in LGBT history Peter Talbot | @petejtalbot

The American Gay Rights Movement began in the 20th century. Prominent moments include the first brick thrown at the Stonewall Inn Riots of 1969, where violent protests began after a routine police raid of the popular LGBT bar. In the 1980s, the ACT UP international advocacy group formed in the midst of the AIDS Crisis to help people living with the disease. But Tuesday evening at the Community Wide Education Night at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington, the LGBT history lesson began as far back as 3000 B.C. Organized by Prism Youth Community, the event brought 23 people together to learn more about LGBT history around the world. “A lot of people think that LGBTQ people or identity is a new thing, whereas we definitely try to let people

know that LGBTQ identity has been around as long as people have been around,” said Spencer Biery, Chair of the Education and Training Committee at Prism. Biery said this was the first time Prism has put on an LGBT history event. He said the idea was partly inspired by the fact October is LGBT History Month and partly inspired by the fact they wanted to be prepared for their trivia night Friday. “Especially in terms of non-recent history, we felt like we weren’t informed,” Biery said. “And we were like, ‘Well, we want to learn,’ and then we also wanted to let other people know because we thought that a lot of people didn’t have a good idea of LGBT history.” The crowd was a mix of older Bloomington residents and high school students from the area, some of whom were members of Prism. Ivy Richardson, a student at Bloomington High School South and a member

of Prism, said that she joined when she was 14. “It’s important to remember where we came from and our roots,” Richardson said. The night began with a presentation by three Prism leaders. Spencer Biery, Becca Smith and Alec Deoroto presented on LGBT history in three parts: Early History (3000 B.C. to 1000 A.D.), Age of Contact (1400-1870) and Modern and Civil Rights Movements (1870 to today). Early History included LGBT history from India, China, the Middle East, Greece and Japan. Among the different regions that were examined, all had fairly open cultural feelings toward homosexuality. Smith said that the Age of Contact was a time when a lot of stigma creeped into many cultures as a result of colonization. “These open attitudes began to change,” Smith said. Smith said that in the Americas, where the Mayans and Aztecs had previously

“Like Siri understands your speech only some of the time, generic closed captioning on a Youtube video isn’t always going to be accurate,” Stumpner said. For this reason, collaboration with lecturers ahead of time is imperative for those students, she said. Many students are

also not comfortable enough using ASL fluently, Stumpner said. Debbie Gessinger, advisor for the ASL club at IU, said that the club aims to make students more comfortable using ASL so that they can have an extra aid along with their hearing technology. Even for students without hearing loss,

had laid-back attitudes toward same-sex relationships, the conquest by the Spanish and Portuguese led to laws that were rooted in Christianity. Along with the Spanish and Portuguese came many missionaries looking to spread Christianity, who saw same-sex relationships as against the beliefs they were trying to spread. Biery followed with the modern history of the LGBT community. He moved

through the riots of the ‘60s such as the Stonewall Inn Riots. The trivia also included questions about Compton’s Cafeteria Riot. It was one of the United States’ first known LGBT riots, which took place in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district in 1966. The Tenderloin was one of the only places in the city that transgender people felt safe until the cafeteria staff began to call the police to arrest their transgender patrons. The arrests led to a riot in the cafeteria where dishes and coffee were thrown, a police car’s windows were broken and a newsstand burned down. “I think a lot of people think, ‘Oh, this was so long ago,’ but it really wasn’t,” Biery said. After the presentation, attendees broke into groups to research LGBT history in individual regions. Groups looked into South America, Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia and China.

Penny Githens, 67, said that she came to the event because she wanted to learn more about issues in the LGBT community. Githens was partially inspired to go because she is running for Indiana legislature. She said she thinks it is important to know about LGBT issues both as a person and as a candidate. She said she feels like she only hears about international issues when they make the U.S. news. At the Prism education night, she was able to learn more about the situation for LGBT people in other countries. “There are changes going on throughout the world, and sometimes we are slow to catch up,” she said. Githens said it’s important to learn about LGBT history because there is still more to be done to help the community moving forward. “In looking back we start to realize, historically, there’s not a basis for the prejudice we see today,” Githens said.

Gessinger said it is important for all people to be able to communicate with deaf and hard-of-hearing students and learn about deaf culture. “ASL is one of the most used languages in the world, and it’s spreading like wildfire,” Gessinger said. She is deaf and uses a video relaying service to

talk over the phone. The club, along with exercises to improve their ASL skills, participates in field trips to deaf schools and does community service together. “We want to make it easier for students to use ASL in the classroom and learn about deaf culture at the same time,” she said.

“We want to provide a community where students with hearing loss can feel comfortable.” Stumpner encourages all students to reach out to the Speech and Hearing Clinic at IU to get their hearing checked, even if they do not think they have hearing loss or are uncomfortable with the idea.

Cultural center reps advise on Halloween costumes on perception of minority groups, Curliss explained there are methods of cultural sharing that are appropriate and beneficial as well.

By Caroline Anders @andersGOA

As Halloween approaches, store aisles begin to fill with costumes of all kinds, and college students nationwide scramble to find their new identity for a night. Though Halloween is a time to become someone else, a gray area of ethical costume choice arises when people choose to dress as a racial or ethnic group they don't belong to. “I think the main aspect of it is this idea of taking parts from what you would call nondominant culture and taking them out of context and doing it in a way that’s harmful to the people whose culture you’re taking from,” said Lydia Curliss, graduate student assistant at the First Nations Educational and Cultural Center. Curliss said this behavior is exemplified by nonnative people wearing headdresses as a fashion statement. She explained how seeing that makes people assume indigenous people have not progressed past who they were precolonization — it freezes them in time. “Folks, I think, don’t realize sometimes what’s happening or what they’re doing innocently sometimes,” said Lilian Casillas, the director of La Casa Latino Cultural Center. Casillas said a lot of cos-

tumes play on stereotypes to reinforce negative attributes of various cultures. She said it can be offensive to see a costume of a mustached man wearing a sombrero and holding maracas. She explained that as Halloween rolls around, major retailers start to put out Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, merchandise. Unfortunately, however, many of the items sold are confused for Halloween decorations and blur the line between the two

holidays further. The Day of the Dead is a traditional Mexican holiday honoring deceased loved ones. It is not a costume party. Casillas also talked about how even costumes with good intentions can reinforce negative stereotypes about a culture. “For you to take something, you have to recognize that there's a bad thing affiliated with it and how you using it as a Halloween cos-

tume reinforces more of the negative than the positive,” she said of wearing things like sombreros as a costume. Keiko McCullough, graduate assistant at the Asian Culture Center, said cultural appropriation falls within the broader category of racism. McCullough said Katy Perry dressing up as a geisha for an award show was an example of problematic cultural appropriation. “She’s most likely trying to benefit off of this harm-

ful stereotype, but then she can take it off and at the end of the day, she won’t experience discrimination for being Japanese," McCullough said. "She’ll make lots of money for doing a good job at the VMAs or wherever that was, and that’s really not her life nor is she a part of that culture.” While McCullough, Curliss and Casillas all pointed to costumes like ninjas, mariachi bands and Pocahontas as having a negative impact

“You can be a nonnative person and go to a pow wow and be respectful of the culture and take in the culture,” she said. “There are times when you’re supposed to sit and stand so standing if you can and doing things like that versus showing up in a headdress and a Pocahontas costume and dancing in the circle. That’s a pretty clear line.” All three representatives from the cultural centers encouraged shoppers to use discretion when looking for a costume this year. “Think about it before you do it, and if you are going to do it, be willing to know that people are going to call you out potentially,” Curliss said.

Culture of Care, state raise awareness for Lifeline Law By Christine Fernando

Tom Sweeney, incoming Culture of Care president and IU sophomore, said he hopes for a day where there will be no more alcohol-related deaths on college campuses. While getting to that point will not be easy, he said the first steps are to encourage active bystanders who will step up in dangerous situations and to spread awareness for the Lifeline Law. “It’s a tough road, but that’s the dream,” he said. “We don’t want to see any more deaths because of alcohol, so we have to look out for one another and call for help as soon as we can.” The Lifeline Law gives students immunity for public intoxication or minor possession of alcohol if they call for help for a person in an alcohol-related medical emergency and cooperate with police officers when they arrive on scene. The law, passed in 2012, was a response to alcohol-related deaths among collegeaged students, often because

students were afraid of getting in trouble for underage drinking if they called for help. In Indiana alone, more than 24 people under the age of 21 died from alcohol poisoning in the last 10 years, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. One of them was former IU freshman Rachael Fiege, who died in 2013 after falling down the stairs at her first college party. Sweeney said Culture of Care is working with the Indiana Youth Services Association, Indiana’s Textto-911 Services and state leaders, including Indiana state treasurer Kelly Mitchell, to spread awareness for the law at college campuses and to prevent any more alcoholrelated deaths at IU. The social media campaign is part of the second annual IYSA Make Good Decisions program and will run until November. The Make Good Decisions program will shift its attention to high schools in Indiana in the spring. Catherine Seat, communications director for the In-

diana Treasury of State, said the campaign will connect with students through ads on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. “We have to meet students where they are, and they’re already on these social media platforms,” Seat said. “We saw it as the most direct way to reach college students.” Seat said the campaign has already made 4,227,199 impressions, with two million on Facebook and one million on Snapchat. In each ad, an image depicts young people drinking or partying. In one, a girl is supporting a friend who has passed out on her shoulder. In another, a crowd of people dance with red solo cups

bobbing above their heads. Underneath each image are the words, “TXT/CALL 911. STAY. COOPERATE.” Miko Siewenie, Culture of Care president and IU senior, said even students who know about the Lifeline Law do not realize they have to stay and cooperate with police officers in order to receive immunity for alcohol-related crimes. Instead, many think they can call for help and leave. “We don’t want people to call and then leave this person who’s in danger alone because they’re worried about repercussions,” she said. While she wants people to take advantage of the law, Siewenie said it is important

for students to know that immunity from law enforcement during emergencies does not mean being caught with alcohol underage will not affect scholarship, academic standing or penalties from IU. “We don’t want that to keep people from calling, but sometimes it’s the reality,” Siewenie said. “So it’s important to know how things like this will affect your scholarships and stuff before it happens.” Sweeney said on many invitations to parties on Facebook, he has seen the words “Culture of Care” written in the description to remind students to look out for one another and call for help if needed. But he said there is still a divide on campus in who knows about the Lifeline Law and who does not. “It does seem pretty 5050,” he said. “Some people are aware. Some aren’t.” Siewenie said she hopes students will put someone’s life ahead of legal repercussions, but she said it is difficult to think about that in the moment when you are scared and your friends

may be telling you not to call. “They may not realize that there’s a real problem until it’s too late,” she said. “They may be facing backlash from friends who are scared of repercussions. They may just be terrified of what may happen in that moment.” For students who are reluctant to stand up because their friends may get upset, Seat recommended texting 911. “No one has to hear or see you do it,” she said. “You can send off a text and save a person’s life, and your friends don’t even need to know.” In 2016 alone, seven 911 calls were attributed to the Lifeline Law, according to the IYSA Make Good Decisions Annual Report. This brings the number of 911 calls attributed to the Lifeline Law up to 33 between 2012 and 2016. Seat said that number has now passed 40. “Even one life saved is enough for these efforts to be worthwhile,” she said. “Now we’re getting upwards of 40, and with every life we save, it’s all the more reason to keep going.”

Mandatory minimums do not solve the opioid epidemic


en. Jim Merritt, R-Indianapolis, is proposing mandatory minimum sentences on people selling Fentanyl-laced drugs in effort to curb the opioid epidemic. However, time and time again, mandatory minimums have caused more harm than good, and this time is no different. A mandatory minimum is a legislated sentence given to people who commit certain crimes, regardless of mitigating factors. While it initially sounds well-intentioned, it harms addicts more than dealers. While it would be great to assume that legislation like this targets dealers and not people suffering from opioid addiction, it’s impossible for legislation to decide who has “intent to deal” and who is just in possession. This means that the state and police have the discretion to decide if someone in possession is a dealer of Fentanyl-laced drugs or if they are an addict. The state could be rounding up people who are addicted, and not dealers. Since 1980, when mandatory minimums were first introduced for drug-related offenses, the federal prison system has grown by nearly 800 percent. Mass incarceration is already a rampant issue, and mandatory minimums are partially to thank for that. When former President Reagan


signed the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986, mandatory minimums disproportionately affected African Americans addicted to crack cocaine. Urban communities were eviscerated, and the crack cocaine problem has raged to this day. Mandatory minimums for Fentanyl-laced drugs will devastate rural communities just like they did urban communities. Mandatory minimums are a waste of time and effort when funding and legislation could be working toward harm reduction instead of mass incarceration. Last year, roughly 64,000 people died from drug overdoses, and overdoses are now the leading cause of death in Americans under 50. Instead of offering treatment programs, safe needle disposal and

exchange or support from medical professionals, Indiana is offering an extended prison sentence. There are currently 19 approved treatment programs people in Indiana addicted to opioids. However, many still say they have to “drive long distances” in order to receive treatment. This means low-income rural addicts have limited access to these facilities, and they are hurt the most since seeking help is intangible. Recently, Lawrence County — just south of Monroe County — rescinded its safe needle exchange program. Mandatory minimums target addicts. If they could viably target dealers, it would be a great movement for bettering the opioid crisis. However, mandatory minimums merely increase incarceration, where

mental health and addiction treatments are far and few between. After release, opioid users are far more likely to use the drug again, in levels their bodies cannot tolerate, often resulting in overdose. Mandatory minimums, then, will indirectly increase overdose, especially if they create convicts prone to recidivism. Heroin dealers who use Fentanyl in their drugs are devoid of competent thought for the people they deal to. If Indiana's opioid policy could get the people dealing the drugs off the streets instead of the people addicted to them, our society would be safer, and our loved ones wouldn’t be at risk. However, mandatory minimums have never targeted the dealers, and they never will.

Nearly 600,000 cases among children are expected, with a quarter of all reported cases involving children under 5 years old. A multipronged war helmed by the United States, United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia has ripped Yemen apart, creating the one of the most tragic yet unknown human disasters occurring in the world today. A mass blackout in the public conscious about Ye-

men is not coincidental, and it is due to the U.S. role in this monstrous campaign against the Yemini people. Furthermore, U.S. and British journalists bear particular responsibility, as they have worked tirelessly to frame the war as a proxy conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and not the latest episode in a decades long U.S. military project to reshape the Middle East. U.S. involvement in Yemen dates to a covert war against Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula beginning in the early years of former President Barack Obama's administration. Yet, complicity in the conflict truly increased once Saudi Arabia, with shocking cooperation by the United

States and United Kingdom, started its horrendous bombing campaign against Houthi rebels, enemies of its client government in Saana, Yemen. The bombing campaign has become an international scandal. Over 14,000 people have been killed and maimed, while coalition bombing has targeted weddings, funerals, agricultural production, a Doctor’s Without Borders hospital and schools. Other efforts to break the Yemini population include a blockade with the intent of mass starvation and preventing medicinal supplies, which undoubtedly has caused the current cholera epidemic. To be sure, deputizing

the Saudi’s to carry out the humanitarian nightmare necessitated by U.S. policy likely allows the U.S. government to absolve itself of legal responsibility. This conflict in turn has been exclusively sold and framed as an aberration of Middle East politics. The phrase “Saudi-led coalition” is used alarmingly often when an establishment media outlet discusses the bombing campaign. Entire articles are published that don’t even mention U.S. involvement in generating this crisis. By all accounts, Saudi Arabia wants out of the conflict. The consequences of creating a basketcase failed state on its own border has no doubt shaken the country up, but the war

continues. Worsening Yemen’s fate is the regime of global terrorism inaugurated by President Trump's administration. Trump is dropping bombs at a rate 80 percent higher than the last year of Obama’s presidency. The sickening “bomb the hell out of them” policy has become reality, as the antiIslamic State bombing campaign alone has caused upwards of 4,500 civilian casualties in the first seven months of the Trump administration. Yemen has not been spared from the dogs of war unleashed by Trump. Outright bombing of the Arab world’s poorest nation by the U.S. military has doubled under Trump, at an average of once every two days.

Some hopeful news amidst this misery is that a group of bipartisan representatives in Congress have recently pushed for a vote on legislation that would end U.S. support for the Saudi bombing campaign. The diversity behind the push for the vote, ranging from Noam Chomsky to Martin Sheen to the Tea Party-funded Freedomworks, shows that a broad coalition in the U.S. wants to end the U.S. role in this human catastrophe. Though if $100 billion in weapons sales to Saudi says anything, it’s that Trump and his owners in the arms industry want bloodshed to continue in Yemen.



Do not promote lying ads on Twitter

Banning books harms students

Maggie Eickhoff is a senior in international studies.

Twitter recently reversed its decision to block the spread of the Senate campaign video of Rep. Marsha Blackburn, RTennessee, because of its inflammatory language. Previously, Twitter had deemed her use of the phrase “sale of baby body parts” unacceptable and in violation of its terms. Blackburn’s ad violated Twitter's policies for promoted advertisements, a Twitter spokesperson said Monday. The company found it “likely to evoke a negative reaction.” However, on Tuesday, the social media company told Politico that it had reversed the decision and said in a statement that there was "room to refine their policies." Twitter made a completely valid move by not allowing this advertisement to be shown, and then made a weak one by reneging on it. For one, the material in question could have been, as Twitter stated, very distressing for a wide audience. It was completely within Twitter's right to remove it from promoted materials. A Blackburn campaign spokeswoman said Twitter's initial decision was "censorship." However, the ad could have been shown and promoted from her own private Twitter account. It still would

have been online, but it would not have been spread as a “promoted” tweet to anyone who does not already follow her. Beyond it being within Twitter's rights as a company, her statement in the ad is simply misguided. In her ad, she claims that she was on a panel that “fought Planned Parenthood” and “stopped the sale of baby body parts.” She is referring to the 2015 release of secretly recorded footage of Planned Parenthood officials speaking about donating, not selling, fetal tissue to researchers. This is a legal action as long as no profit is made on Planned Parenthood’s part. Blackburn served on the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, which investigated Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue donation. These investigations found no sales of fetal tissue, prompting Democrats to call the ordeal “wasteful” and express that it put “researchers, providers and patients across this country at risk.” Blackburn’s committee on the panel released a statement after the investigation that said fetal tissue “makes a vanishingly small contribution to clinical and research efforts, if it contributes at all.” In fact, if Twitter had upheld its decision to prevent this ad from being promot-

ed, it could have benefitted Blackburn. If fewer people saw that she did not understand that no “baby body parts” were being “sold” at the hands of Planned Parenthood, fewer people would know that she had grossly misinterpreted a process of biological research. Fewer people would know that she had gone against her own committee’s findings for the purpose of sensationalizing her campaign ad. Both of these things make her unfit for a seat in the Senate, so the fewer people who find out about them, the better her run will go. Twitter could have protected her from the trolls and insulting replies this ad would have received if disseminated to a wide audience. And they could have prevented the spread of bent truths about fetal tissue research in general. The reversal of Twitter's decision to block her ad was succumbing to the pressure to publicize sensationalized rumors from radical conservatives, and it should have held strong in their initial findings. Blackburn said that she’s “politically incorrect,” but her ad proves she is also factually incorrect. And since Twitter flipped its stance on the ad, now everyone will know. @maggie_eickhoff

No book should ever be banned. Even texts containing obscene or offensive content are artifacts of the human condition and, if taught carefully, can be used to illuminate history or contemporary culture and encourage progress. Harper Lee’s "To Kill a Mockingbird" has a long history of being subjected to censorship at the hands of schools and communities who do not share this belief, and the public school district of Biloxi, Mississippi, is only the most recent offender to join the list. First banned in Hanover County, Virginia, in 1966 for its central involvement of rape in the plot, "To Kill a Mockingbird" has since become the twenty-first mostbanned book in the United States. Since then, the novel has also been banned for its use of racial slurs on the grounds that such language “promotes white supremacy.” Such an argument completely ignores the context of the novel, which makes clear the use of language such as the n-word is included only for the sake of accuracy in depicting the segregated American South of the early

20th century. In a letter to the Richmond Times-Dispatch regarding the Hanover ban, Lee wrote, “Surely it is plain to the simplest intelligence that 'To Kill a Mockingbird' spells out in words of seldom more than two syllables a code of honor and conduct, Christian in its ethic, that is the heritage of all Southerners.” To explain Biloxi’s censorship, School Board Vice President Kenny Holloway claims that “There is some language in the book that makes people uncomfortable, and we can teach the same lesson with other books.” If these other books manage to meet Biloxi’s requirements of non-offensive content, then I have considerable doubts with regard to the accuracy of their representations of how life in the age of "To Kill a Mockingbird" truly was, especially for African Americans. We must not sacrifice comfort for truth of content, and limiting exposure to watered-down accounts of what was in fact very potent racism would only be more harmful to students. Of course, there is an argument to be made students who feel threatened by the forces the text indicts should be permitted to decide for themselves whether they are comfortable reading it.

If distress while reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" relates, for example, to the emotional pain a black student might feel in examining the racism on display in the novel, he or she could reasonably decide not to continue reading it. On the other hand, students who are further separated from the experience of racism against black people in America, especially white students, incur a greater loss of empathy and cultural awareness if they are never exposed to books that teach them about perspectives other than their own. We may sometimes wish to shield children from aspects of reality we feel they are not yet mature enough to face, but there is a difference between preserving innocence and promoting ignorance. Biloxi’s implied desire to use books that mitigate the reality of the United State's history of racism instead of books that represent racism accurately will only inhibit the development of their students’ sociocultural maturation. As Harper Lee herself once said, “The book to read is not the one that thinks for you, but the one which makes you think.” @foreverfloral97

Receveur earns Big Ten award From IDS reports


Freshman midfielder Griffin Dorsey looks on after kicking the ball against Notre Dame on Oct. 26 at Bill Armstrong Stadium. Dorsey has been an impactful player on the wings for men’s soccer this season.

International phenom Freshman winger Griffin Dorsey has appeared for the United States Under-18 Youth National Team By Josh Eastern | @JoshEastern

The process of being called up to the United States Under-18 Youth National Team at the beginning of October was fairly simple for IU freshman winger Griffin Dorsey. It began by contacting IU Coach Todd Yeagley. “They contact Yeagley first to make sure it’s OK for me to leave and take the time off,” Dorsey said. “From there, Yeagley talks to me about what I want to do and then we make a decision from there.” Many of Dorsey’s teammates, along with Yeagley, were happy that he received the call-up. “As tough as it is for him to leave, it’s the right thing to do for him and his development, and we’re going to keep him on that path,” Yeagley said. After the trip, Dorsey said he did not have to readjust himself when it came to getting back on the field for IU. One off-the-field adjustment, however, was getting his sleep schedule back on track with a sixhour time change and more than 12-hour trip to Europe with the youth national team. He traveled to Marbella, Spain, to play for the United States in friendlies against Belgium and Russia. He was in the starting lineup against Belgium. Just hours after he returned, Dorsey played in IU’s match against Kentucky on Oct. 11. He said the crowd got him going, along with a bit of adrenaline. While with the U-18 team, Dorsey got the chance to play with players from outside of the college game. “It’s all European,” Dorsey said. “At the U.S. team we have probably 10, 15 kids playing professionally already in Germany and MLS. It’s a very professional style, and it’s a challenge for sure. Belgium, they have a bunch of players in the Bundesliga and in the Belgium league.” Just five of his 21 U-18 teammates also came from college programs. The rest play professionally. Dorsey has represented the United States at past youth national team tournaments in Slovakia and Portugal, so this level of competition was not new to him. But things are a bit different now for Dorsey. He is a bit

older and his national-team teammates and opponents have signed professional contracts all around Europe and the United States. Dorsey said it was a professional environment, but he also described the experience as a bit of a culture shock playing in a different country against international players. Dorsey said he was glad to see the guys be able to succeed and get the job done without him. “It’s weird being away from the team, but they got the work done and that’s all that matters," Dorsey said. The Evergreen, Colorado, native was part of the 2017 recruiting class for IU, one that has raised some eyebrows around the country with its level of play. Along with goalkeeper Trey Muse and forwards Mason Toye, Justin Rennicks and Thomas Warr, the group came in as a topfive class, per Top Drawer Soccer. The group has proven itself by having five players in the top50 freshman list released by Top Drawer Soccer earlier this week.

“Right now, I think he’s one of the best players in the Big Ten, even as a freshman.” Mason Toye, freshman forward

Dorsey said being included in this recruiting class is “special.” IU junior midfielder Francesco Moore said he kind of expected this type of play for the class just because of its hype before coming in. Dorsey has extensive experience playing at many different levels. While in high school, Dorsey played in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy for the Colorado Rush. This enabled him to showcase his skills at a higher level than just the high school leagues. He was ranked as a top-20 recruit by both Top Drawer Soccer and College Soccer News. The freshman was ready to go from the moment he got to Bloomington. “It’s not much of a difference,” Dorsey said. “This team plays with heart and that’s what I’ve always learned how to

play with.” Dorsey is a player who can attack with speed from the flanks. It looks as if Dorsey runs downhill when the ball is at his feet. Defenders are on their heels when he attacks. He is a dynamic type of attacker that the Hoosiers have not had in a few years. Dorsey can balance the field with other wingers or with junior defender Andrew Gutman on the left side, as Gutman often advances up from his left back position. Yeagley said it would potentially give opponents a harder time when they try to sort out IU's gameplan. “Griff is a fantastic talent,” Yeagley said. “We have to let him use his instincts and yet continue to help him grow tactically with his movements and his thoughts. But you don’t want to stifle someone with that ability. We’re going to let him do what Griff does sometimes and read those cues and make sure we find him the ball.” The connection among the freshmen has been special to watch — Muse has 12 shutouts in goal, Toye leads the team with eight goals and Dorsey has provided energetic play on the wings. Toye and Dorsey also share a dorm room. Toye said the chemistry from living together carries over to the field. Whether playing the NBA 2K video game, staying up late or walking to class together, it gives them more time to talk. “I’m just like, ‘get the ball, do your thing, I’ll be in the box, I’ll put them away for you,'” Toye said. “Right now, I think he’s one of the best players in the Big Ten, even as a freshman. He’s unstoppable. Big Ten should be scared because they haven’t seen anyone like Griffin Dorsey.” With the regular season winding down and tournament play right around the corner, the No. 1 Hoosiers have a chance to create something special. The season so far has allowed Dorsey to gain experience, and not just the kind that will help him as IU pursues a ninth national title, but the type that will help him beyond this season. “Those experiences don’t come often and what I learned will stick with me forever," Dorsey said.

Reigning All-American junior Katherine Receveur added yet another accomplishment to her recent string of success for the IU women’s cross-country team Wednesday. For the third time this year, she was named Big Ten Athlete of the Week for women’s cross-country. The award came after an impressive performance at last Friday’s Nuttycombe Invitational at Wisconsin in which she finished as the 10th-best individual with a time of 20:00.5. Receveur won her first two Big Ten Athlete of the Week for cross-country


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 where the team will be practicing Thursday night. Spencer is known for his role in organizing the Charlottesville, Virginia, white nationalist rally that led to the death of a counter-protester in August. Jeremy Gray, IU Senior Associate Athletic Director for Strategic Communications and Fan Experience, confirmed an IUPD officer will accompany the swimming and diving team and coaching staff to Florida. Gray said the officer’s purpose with the swimming and diving team will be mainly to help communicate with security personnel already in Florida. Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency ahead of Spencer’s planned speech. University of Florida President, W. Kent Fuchs, advised students and faculty avoid Spencer’s event and not give him attention. All of these potential distractions will occur Thurs-

awards after her performances at the Coast to Coast Battle at Beantown in Boston and the Sam Bell Invitational in Bloomington. In the latter, she broke the women’s 6K record for the IU Championship Cross Country Course with a time of 20:54.15. Prior to this season, Receveur had not won a conference athlete of the week award. Receveur’s showing in Wisconsin put her ahead of any other Big Ten runner and she will take that distinction going into next week’s Big Ten Championships in Bloomington. Murphy Wheeler day, a day before the Hoosiers will have to focus on competing in the tri-meet. Head Swimming Coach Ray Looze said IU has focused on improving its speed during the offseason. Part of this strategy was to hire Coley Stickels, who came to Bloomington from Canyons Aquatic Club in Santa Clara, California, after guiding world-record holder, American Abbey Weitzeil, to gold and silver medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics. “We’ve really been trying to add speed to our team,” Looze said. “We started by hiring one of the top sprint coaches in the country.” Stickels works with the men’s and women’s team, the men’s team has a target on its back after defeating Florida and Texas last year. “We want to be top five, so if we you want to be top five you have go after these guys,” Looze said. After the tri-meet this weekend, the Hoosiers will travel again next weekend to face Kentucky and Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee.

It’s time to get LaCroixzy LaCroix blessed us with a new flavor so we returned the favor: reviews, rebuttals, comparisons and more. By Matt Rasnic @matt_rasnic


s LaCroix sparkling water soda is gaining popularity among the Bloomington community and beyond, LaCroix water blessed us with Key Lime, a new flavor better than any of its predecessors. From 2015 to 2016, LaCroix had a 72.7 percent growth rate, according to the National Beverage Corp. 2017 annual report, which is 4.5 percent higher than the competition’s increases. Here are quick reviews of the flavors we’ve come to know and love. Key Lime Just like this autumn has brought us summer-like temperatures, LaCroix sparkling water has brought us a taste of summer with its new key lime flavor. You may be wondering, “How could this be different from the ever-so-popular lime flavor?” As I danced around the IDS newsroom to spread the news of the great new key lime flavor, I was bombarded with questions of how it tastes. I was caught off guard as I was not sure what to compare it to. Then my taste buds had a quick flashback to the era of the limeflavored Skittle. That was it. LaCroix had harvested the flavor of the beloved and no-longerexistent lime Skittle into a crisp and refreshing beverage.

Mango That’s right, the mango flavor does exist. I know you forgot, but that is why we refer to mango as the often forgotten stepchild of the LaCroix family. If a tropical refreshment is what you desire, then a can of mango LaCroix is what you need. Mango provides a beautifully tangy taste that is guaranteed to please your palate. Berry The flavor that took my croixginity. While on a road trip home from the 2017 Women’s

March on Washington, I was given the opportunity to try my first sparkling water soda. Thankfully, it was a can of LaCroix and not one of those awful knock-offs in green plastic bottles. As we all know, berry is not the star child of the LaCroix family, but it sure makes us appreciate the key players such as lime or pomplamoose. Coconut As I began drinking LaCroix, I was always warned to stay far away from the coconut flavor. “It smells and tastes like sunscreen” is something I often heard. I was strolling through Costco with my mother when I stumbled upon a cheap LaCroix variety pack which contained passionfruit, mango and coconut. Knowing I liked passionfruit and mango, I told myself I could endure six cans of sunscreen-flavored soda. On a warm Monday afternoon, I opened the fridge to look for a cold one to crack because, after all, Mondays are for the Croixs. I was quickly struck with panic as the only flavor I had left was … coconut. After I took a sip, I was surprised. Coconut isn’t my first choice, but if that’s all that is around, I’ll drink one. Pomplamoose The LaCroix that we all trust. A true classic. Pomplamoose, or as we English speakers like to call it, grapefruit, is a flavor everyone loves. Though no one likes to eat the actual fruit, we all have come to enjoy the flavor that pomplamoose provides. I vividly remember sitting in the Soma coffee shop on 10th Street working on homework when I finished my coffee and realized it sold cold cans of LaCroix. I had the option of trying a new flavor without the obligation of a full case. Now that we have given you a look into our favorites ,tell us your’s on social media by using #IDSLaCroix.

The agony and the anguish of sparkling water By Sarah Lally @sarahmlally

LaCroix Sparkling Water. The number-one carbonated water brand in the United States. Known to some as the most delicious drink invented within the last century — it is the all-occasion beverage for the most stylish of carbonation connoisseurs. But do not be fooled by its gorgeous packaging or its chic branding. LaCroix is just sparkling water by any other fancy name, and sparkling water is gross. I must be honest: this manifesto is not only inspired by LaCroix. I rail against all sparkling water — San Pellegrino, Perrier, store-brand seltzer — because sparkling water is an abomination. It was invented by Europeans because they apparently have not invented water filtration yet and have to settle for angry water or beer (which, as an aside, tastes like a yeast infection). But LaCroix rises above them all as the most despicable. Its distinctive design is deceptively appealing, but the drink itself — oh, a horror. Satan keeps a LaCroix in the cupholder of his throne. I concede that LaCroix’s branding is almost flawless. A beautiful watercolor can, emblazoned with an elegantly casual text reading “LaCroix sparkling water.” Its basic flavor is “pure,” other flavors are “essenced” — all the words utilized on the can itself are graceful, tasteful and sophisticated. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the salty water living inside this aluminum art. To get straight to the point: LaCroix tastes like drinking Wet Wipes. It tastes like vinegar water. It tastes like Windex. It tastes like antifreeze, but unlike that,


A croixparison How do other brands stack up against the taste of the original? By Sarah Verschoor @SarahVerschoor

Yep, I’m one of those millennials obsessed with LaCroix. Obsessed enough to carry a cooler full back to Bloomington after a trip home in September and stupid enough to pause in Kroger each week grocery shopping and wonder if $3.99 for eight cans of fruity sparkling water is really worth it. (It is, by the way.) The quintessential LaCroix flavor in my book is lime, maybe only rivaled by its trusted counterpart lemon. Every sip tastes like savory sparkling water with

a squeeze of lime wedge. It is your mom’s favorite flavor, inoffensive to your Coca-Cola-loving aunt and your nerdy cousin’s secret obsession. By far, the best part about the Croix is its simplicity. The flavor is natural and pure, and the more than 20 flavors are a wide enough variety to pair with any snack or meal. But, and this may come as a shock to some fans, there are other types of sparkling water besides LaCroix. I tried a few competing brands to see if their versions of lime sparkling water could rival the ease of a lime LaCroix.

Bargain Brand ALDI’s Pur Aqua Belle Vie Lime Sparkling Water This lime imposter insulted my taste buds. I took the first sip, and I wondered if I was drinking windshield wiper fluid. While the fizz was appropriate, the flavor was all off. It was syrupy, a big no-no. Hey, I appreciate a good bargain. Kroger brand sparkling water ain’t half bad. But this one just completely missed the mark in terms of flavor and long-term (entire can) enjoyability. Mr. Fancy Pants Lime Perrier Look, I get it. Perrier has

an appeal to those of us out there who enjoy the finer things. I didn’t know what to expect, taste testing a luxury brand sparkling mineral water. But what I got was wood chips. This tasted like literal wood chips to me. And no, before you ask, I don't have some twisted childhood story about eating wood chips. It's just what I can surmise from being a human with senses. I think the people at Perrier took the mineral in mineral water maybe a little too literally. If there’s a redeeming quality, it leaves a pleasant SEE COMPARISON, PAGE 12


drinking LaCroix unfortunately won’t kill me. It tastes like fruit-flavored vape smoke upon which the power of the water cycle was deployed. We, as humans, allowed a company to turn Greg’s mediocre smoke rings into cannable liquid. We must all live with this shame, this black mark on our collective soul. It tastes like washing yourself with Tide PODS. It is a cry for help — a lone wail in the night, begging, begging, please don’t make me drink LaCroix. For the love of god, just give me plain tap water. It’s just as hydrating and doesn’t taste angry.

It tastes like antifreeze, but unlike that, drinking LaCroix unfortunately won’t kill me. LaCroix tastes like scented candles. To some, LaCroix has the audacity to have the flavor of wood chips (taste the playground). I cannot believe that LaCroix is allowed to be sold in stores, as it violates several Nuremberg principles. If I’m in the desert with a can of LaCroix and motor oil, I’m drinking the motor oil. LaCroix would be improved by any addition. Kool-Aid powder. Raw eggs. A blended iPhone. The shards of glass running down my throat would add an appealing iron-esque aftertaste to help me forget about the assault LaCroix just executed upon my taste buds. And the name, LaCroix, even is flawed. It is pretentious to an almost despicable degree. What red-blooded SEE MANIFESTO, PAGE 12

taste of lime in your mouth after a sip. But that might be it with this one. Wildcard pick CVS Gold Emblem Tangerine Lime sparkling water I really admired the ambition of a tangerine and lime combo. I was excited to try a mixed-up flavor. But boy, the combo was all off. The tangerine was strong, and the lime just did not vibe with it. It was like two people doing the tango, only with five feet of separation between them. It just didn’t work. It also tastes substantially more syrupy than LaCroix, even though the package says there are zero sugars. This, my friends, was a let down. The takeaway This wasn't scientific. It was a sample size of three. But what did I learn from all of this? Well, I’m a snob. I'm LaCroixalist, plain and simple, just like the drink.


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 American knows how to pronounce a French word? Recent history has shown that we can hardly handle calling fried potatoes “french fries.” Much like “freedom fries,” LaCroix might do well to rebrand into something more patriotic — more essentially American. Some options include: LaCowboy, LaConfederate, LaColonelSanders, and/or LaColonialActionsTakenAgainstNativeAmericans. The flavor of LaCroix — and all sparkling water — cannot be masked by its colorful cans and pastel packaging. It is a violation of everything humane. Its fame is due to impressive branding, millennial devotion and ultimately represents the most melanin-deficient of our culture. The Caucasity of it all.


Patton Oswalt acts in “Keeping Up with the Joneses.” Oswalt recently released his 2017 comedy special “Patton Oswalt: Annihilation,” in which he grapples with the death of his wife, Michelle McNamara.

Laugh and cry with Patton Oswalt By Jesse Pasternack @jessepasternack Grade A-

"Patton Oswalt: Annihilation" deals with one of the darkest events in the titular comic's life. Last year, his wife, Michelle McNamara, died at the age of 46. Oswalt spends the special detailing life in the Trump era and his grief. One of Oswalt’s greatest strengths as a comic is finding the absurd in the everyday. This characterizes some of his best standup routines, which cover everything from KFC Famous

Bowls to birthdays. Some of the routines maintain Oswalt’s idiosyncratic viewpoint. The analyses of his DNA test results and “the best fight he ever saw” feel like they could have been written when Oswalt was first starting as a comedian. But Oswalt’s comedy reflects how the world around him changes. His material about President Trump is as specific and absurd as his jokes about former President George W. Bush. Oswalt’s joke about President Trump’s rise, which involves David Lee Roth and the linguistics

department at Rutgers University, is reason enough to watch the whole special. The most talked-about material relates to the death of Oswalt’s wife. He wrings some great angry and sad jokes out of the awful experience. But some of the most powerful moments are when Oswalt seriously talks about his grief and pain. This year also saw the release of “Chris Gethard: Career Suicide.” Both specials feature the performers using humor to explore thorny issues, such as mental health or losing a loved one. Gethard and Oswalt also know

Batman’s grief is one of the most Oswalt things I’ve ever seen him perform. “Patton Oswalt: Annihilation” may not be the funniest thing he has ever done. That honor goes to his album “Werewolves and Lollipops.” But this is one of the most insightful and well-written things he has created. He ends the special with something his wife used to say about the world: “It’s chaos. Be kind.” It’s a good message, and Oswalt delivers it in such a way as to inspire viewers to better treat other people and the world in which we live.

the perfect moments to become serious. Oswalt’s monologue about telling his young daughter about her mom’s death is heartbreaking. It gives you a tiny way to understand the pain he continues to feel. He pivots to a great joke about dropping his daughter off at school, which is perfectly timed and returns the special to comedy. The best parts of the special meld Oswalt’s eye for absurdity and heart. He has an excellent routine about trying to visit his wife’s grave only to encounter strange people. His takedown of
