Police missing key evidence in Gileau death investigation
No foul play suspected in death of Jon Lacina
By Rashah McChesney Daily Staff Writer
By Sarah Binder and Rashah McChesney Daily Staff Writers
After reviewing five of the six tapes from Union Pacific Trains that passed through Ames the night ISU student Raven Gileau died, Ames police have been unable to find the train that hit her. Police Cmdr. Mike Brennan said Gileau’s injuries were consistent with those of someone who had been hit by a train. However, the tapes, which
are low-quality and grainy do not show the exact time, or train, that hit her. One of the trains had a video camera that was malfunctioning or had already looped over the footage, so those pieces of footage were not provided to Ames police. Brennan said the train’s footage may or may not have shown Gileau’s being struck, but he couldn’t be sure. “It would certainly be nice to have some kind of video of what
happened and that may or may not exist, but it would certainly clarify some things,” Brennan said. Police are still waiting on both the autopsy and toxicology reports to return to help determine the exact circumstances surrounding Gileau’s death. “We’ve got one or two [investigations] left,” Brennan said. “But the bulk of them are done.” Gileau is survived by her parents and one brother in Woodbridge, Va.

manner of death have not been determined, and Catellier would not speculate further about the death because the final autopsy results are not complete. Director of Public Safety Jerry Stewart said that his department didn’t consider any new developments to have been made in the case because the autopsy results had yet to be returned. Catellier said final autopsy results may be available in
two weeks, but she’s expecting them to take at least four weeks. She said it is not unusual for tests to take several weeks to complete.

Dalai Lama at UNI to discuss issues By Abigail Barefoot Daily Staff Writer Regarded as one of the most influential leaders of today, the Dalai Lama has traveled to more than 63 counties over six continents, received more than 84 awards, including the Nobel Peace prize, all by the age of 74. The Dalai Lama will speak at the University of Northern Iowa on Tuesday. In 1994, UNI began working with the Tibet Fund to help provide scholarships for Tibetan students to study at UNI. The UNI president invited the Dalai Lama to lecture on education and the value of learning. The current Dalai Lama was born in Taktser Amdo in northeastern Tibet. At the age of 2, he is assumed to be the incarnation of the previous 13 Dalai Lamas. The dalai lamas are believed to be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion and patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are enlightened beings who have postponed their own nirvana and chosen to take the path of rebirth in order to serve humanity, rather than self. The Dalai Lama was chosen by a search team appointed by the Tibetan government, who followed clues that they believed would guide them to the current Dalai Lama’s home. Once reaching the young Dalai Lama’s home, the group spent the night with his family, but did not say what they were doing in the town. The young Dalai Lama recognized the leader of the party as a spiritual leader, rather than the servant that he was posing as. The Dalai Lama then later recognized several items belonging to the 13th dalai lama as his own. This convinced the party that he was the new incarnation. “No one had any idea that I might be anything other than an ordinary baby ... certainly my parents had no idea that I would be proclaimed Dalai Lama,” said the Dalai Lama. At the age of 15, he assumed full political leadership. He gained political leadership in 1950 after China’s invasion of Tibet in 1949. In 1954, he went to Beijing for peace talks with Mao Zedong, among other leaders. In 1959, he was forced into exile due to increasing tensions between Tibet and China. Since then, he has been living in Dharamsala in northern India. In his old age, he has left the leadership role of the Tibet movement and became an exiled elected parliament leader. He still advocates for Tibet’s case. “For those of us in exile, I said that our priority must be resettlement and the continuity of our cultural traditions. As to the future, I stated my belief that, with truth, justice and courage as our weapons, we Tibetans would eventually prevail in regaining freedom for Tibet,” the Dalai Lama said. The Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel peace

prize for his nonviolent struggle for the lbeation of Tibet in 1989. He was also the first Nobel Prize laureate to be recognized for his concern for environment problems. His life is guided by three major commitments: the promotion of basic human values or secular ethics in the interest of human happiness; the fostering of inter-religious harmony; and the welfare of the Tibetan people, focusing on the survival of their identity, culture and religion, according to the official website of the Dalai Lama. “We all want happiness and do not want suffering. Even people who do not believe in religion recognize the importance of these human values in making their life happier,” the Dalai Lama said. The Dalai Lama speaks not only on Buddist teachings and of the independence of Tibet, but on global issues such as religious harmony, compassion and world peace.

Professors debate health care bill By Chelsea Davis Daily Staff Writer
Norman Daniels — “Social justice is good for our health.” This is Norman Daniels’ slogan. Daniels, ethics professor at Harvard School of Public Health, looked at every component that contributes to overall health, not simply health care. “Health is only a part of the broader idea of well-being,” Daniels said. Daniels said in the 20th century the theory that gave the most prominence to the issue of health care is philosopher John Rawls’ theory of justice. There are three principles in this theory: equal basic liberties, fair equality of opportunity and a difference principle, which Daniels said is the most controversial. “It says that we need to compress socioeconomic inequality all together,” Daniels said. He also said there are many unsolved rationing problems. “All health systems use some kind of rationing principle, trading off compassion for people with stewardship. We give the sickest people some priority in access,” Daniels said. “But we don’t want to turn them into bottomless pits if we can’t do anything for them. There are people who we can do a lot more for if we treat them. We need to retreat to a more fair process.”
This is only part of the story, the rest of the story can be found online at iowastatedaily.com

Though Daniels found flaws with the reform, he believes it is beneficial. “It’s better than we had it. I don’t think the search for a perfect reform should drive out improvements,” Daniels said. Daniels said health care costs are higher in the U.S. than they are in the rest of the world. “It suggests that how efficient the system is matters to concerns about justice,” Daniels said. “If it’s so inefficient, then it’s an important problem.” One inefficiency Daniels cited was that the U.S. is not able to meet all the
health care needs people make claims of. “How can we meet health needs fairly when we can’t meet them all?” Daniels said. Daniels discussed the inequalities that plague the relationship between white and black Americans. “Even if we had perfect universal coverage in this country, it would not eliminate health inequalities between blacks and whites,” Daniel said. Daniels said the U.S. is not going to produce health equity without broader forms of social justice.
David Surdam — Would you want to live in an apartment building where the landlord “pays” for heating and air conditioning or one where each tenant pays individually? David Surdam, associate professor of economics at University of Northern Iowa, used this example to describe the concept of rationing in the new bill. “Rationing was here before, is here and will be here in the future,” Surdam said. “We don’t live in a world of a cornucopia where everyone gets what they want.” In this example, the former instance would happen when the cost of heating and air conditioning is included in each month’s rent, but if one tenant were to change the settings, then every tenant would be forced to pay for this change. In the latter instance, only the tenant changing the settings would pay. Surdam related this to the health care bill, where every American will be forced to have health care by 2014,
while now it is up to the individual to decide whether they want health care. “No health insurance does not mean no care,” Surdam said. “People can pay for moderate health care expenditures out of pocket.” Surdam’s speech raised debate when he described the uninsured. “Most uninsured are only temporarily uninsured, most for less than a year,” Surdam said. Arnie Arnesen, talk radio personality and former Democratic representative, challenged Surdam’s point. “The year I didn’t have health insurance was the year I found a lump in my breast,” Arnesen said. “When I went to the doctor in January and he asked why I hadn’t come in when I found the lump I told him I didn’t have health insurance. He told me how cheap mammograms were, but I had been forced to make a choice.” While Surdam did not directly respond to Arnesen’s argument, he posed questions to the audience. “What are the ethics of forcibly redistributing income and wealth from some people to provide health care for other people?” Surdam said. “Should a group with lower customer satisfaction [Congress] tinker with an industry with greater customer satisfaction [health insurance]? And is this a case of a president and Congress crying “crisis” one too many times?”

Gov. Chet Culver wants to build on what he’s done. Culver, along with his wife Mari and their two children Clare and John, made a stop Monday at the American Country Home Store, 327 Main St. The furniture store played host to Culver’s second stop on his week-long, 42-stop, “Choosing a Better Iowa, Choosing a Brighter Future” tour. Space was tight in the store as Culver spoke to 80 citizens, public officials, political
candidates and members of the Story County Democratic party. Culver highlighted several goals he has planned, if re-elected governor. First, he said he wants Iowa to be the “best connected state” in the United States and build employment opportunities in the state. He cited Google’s and IBM’s decision to open sites in Iowa as examples. Culver also said he has supported investment in early childhood education and wants to continue such programs. “There’s also a choice when it comes to our kids,” he said. He said he wants Iowa to lead in renewable energy. The state currently meets 20 percent of its energy needs from renewable sources, he said, and he hopes to increase that figure to 30 percent in the next five years.
Culver touched on the Regents universities and said he wants to continue research and development at Iowa State and the University of Iowa, such as stem cell research and cures for different diseases. Most of Culver’s speech focused on his future goals and what he would do if reelected. Culver gave credit to many of the officials in the audience for helping him accomplish what he has done while in office. “We’re proud of our record,” Culver said, referring to himself and Lt. Gov. Patty Judge. Culver’s time in office has included making some hard and unpopular decisions, he said. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, governing is hard,” he said. After his speech, Culver made several stops to different small businesses on Main Street.

Bus driver places 10th in national competition
Tuesday, May 18, 2010 | Iowa State Daily | NEWS | 5
Graduate students take first place in Case Competition
By Abigail Barefoot Daily Staff Writer
By Chelsea Davis Daily Staff Writer
Putting his bus driving skills to the test, Paul Klimesh placed 10th in the American Public Transit Association’s Annual North American Bus Roadeo held in Cleveland, Ohio. Klimesh enjoys the competition and said, “It’s always fun, you get to meet people from across the United States and learn about other bus systems.” The competition showcases the driving skills of bus operators by maneuvering the bus through 90-degree right and left turns and reverse movements in close proximity to the curb. The drivers also had to complete a pretrip bus inspection to identify eight defects and one safety hazard within a seven-minute time span. “Some things are easy to spot, like missing bell cords, but sometimes it’s things we just assume are working like fire extinguishers, and they once took off a license plate, or they would turn it upside down,” Klimesh said. Klimesh has been driving for CyRide since 1995. He started driving part-time when he was working on his agricultural engineering degree at Iowa State. After college, he decided to continue driving full-time and participate in state and national level bus roadeos. His love for the competition began here in Ames. “It started as something for fun, to see how you stacked up against others on a local level.” After the competition, he qualified for state and decided to keep competing. Last year, Klimesh competed in the 23rd Iowa Bus Roadeo. He earned second in the large bus competition and third in the small bus division. He competed against 40 operators from 17 different transit systems. His success in the Iowa Bus Roadeo allowed him to advance on to the national competition this past May. For Klimesh, one of the hardest parts was getting used to the buses. “It’s hard because we aren’t using our buses, we are using the competition city buses. So there are all these differences, like where the mirrors are, that we have to take into consideration.” Out of a total of 700 possible points, Klimesh received 534 points. This score placed him in the top 10 in the nation. The
A team of four ISU students won the Big 12 Case Competition at Gerdin last weekend. Out of the 12 schools, 11 competed. The competition took place in 24 hours, with each school trying to figure out the problem of the case, come up with a solution and prove it to a panel of judges. The ISU team consisted of Dan Hinz, Srivani Harish, Gayathri Samarasingha and Scott Groh, graduate students in business administration. “In the case, there was no direction, question or problem to solve,” Hinz said. “It took a lot of time to figure out what the problem was and how to solve it, and then decide how to make it profitable and prove that it was profitable.” While it is difficult for the teams to prepare for a case they’ve never seen before, they began some preparations a month in advance. “The preparation started a month before the competition and involved working through multiple practice cases. In the process, the team members developed their capabilities to work as a team,” said Andreas Schwab, assistant professor of management. “This involved, for example, establishing a clear internal division of labor and developing a formal time line for the sequencing of their tasks. I believe these extensive pre-competition activities paid off during the actual competition.” The teams were presented with information about Amazon and other companies involving e-books and e-reader markets. The ISU team decided to prove to judges that while Amazon is good at selling items online, they are not necessarily good at making devices, such as the Kindle. They also focused on analyzing foreign markets in

points system includes safety, smoothness and driver appearance. The 11-obstacle course must be completed in less than seven minutes, or points are deducted. “Everyone’s goal is to get the perfect score, but of course nobody is perfect. Still, I am trying to get as close as possible.” Klimesh said. “It’s always that you want to keep doing better than the previous year.” “We are very proud of Paul and recognize the great job that he does in safely providing service to Ames residents each and every day. This national honor highlights the great job our drivers, dispatchers and trainers do in delivering quality service to
the community,” said Sheri Kyras, CyRide Transit Director, in a news release, Klimesh has consistently finished high in the ranking of contestants. In 2004, he earned second place at nationals, the highest he has ever received. As well as high ranks in the Bus Roadeo, in 2009 Klimesh was one of several CyRide bus drivers who received the Million Mile Award from the National Safety Council for a million miles, or 25,000 hours, of accident-free driving. Klimesh’s next roadeo endeavor will be to compete in the state bus competition to be held in June in Sioux City.
electronic books and textbooks. “We were the only team to come up with our type of solution,” Harish said. “The judges were happy because we had the numbers to prove it.” Baylor University, coming in second place, came up with an idea for a Kindleberry, a combination of the Kindle and the Blackberry. “It was a good idea and was very well thought out, but they didn’t have a lot of numbers behind it,” Hinz said. “Our numbers and financial analysis are what gave us the winning edge.” The 24-hour deadline for the competition created yet another challenge for the teams. “Without sleep, it made everything else in the world a lot easier to handle,” Hinz said. “I ended up staying up the entire time while my other three teammates took one-and-a-halfhour naps. But that still isn’t a whole lot of sleep.” “It was a great experience in itself,” Harish said. “The judges are like a board of directors.” Schwab said case studies and case competitions present greater learning opportunities. “The Big 12 case competition challenges students to apply their analytical skills to a specific business problem,” Schwab said. “This successful integration of knowledge and skills is the ultimate goal of our MBA program and will determine the success of our students in their future jobs.” The team was able to back their idea with financial analysis and included how much Amazon would lose be losing if they didn’t follow this strategy. “It was a great learning experience, and I worked with a talented group of people,” Harish said. Schwab is proud of the work his students accomplished. “I am absolutely confident that Srivani, Gaya, Dan and Scott have bright business careers ahead of them,” Schwab said.

Angie’s Kitchen remodeled
By Micaela Cashman Daily Staff Writer
An old breakfast hot spot received a major face-lift recently. Angie’s Cantina, 2416 Lincoln Way, has replaced Angie’s Kitchen, though the new owners did preserve some of the old restaurant’s charm. Peter Muljadi and his father, Iwan, took over the restaurant in February. Peter, who grew up in Ames, saw potential in the business. “The breakfast was great,” Peter said, “but there was a huge chunk of time when nothing was being served.” While they kept the breakfast menu, the Muljadis introduced a new lunch and dinner menu featuring Spanish food when they reopened. “It’s mostly Mexican food, with some Spanish food and kind of a fusion of Latin and Spanish dishes,” Peter said. There are 18 Spanish restaurants in Ames, according to the Ames Chamber of Commerce. Only about seven of those are chain restaurants; the rest are original, local creations. Peter and Iwan have a plan to compete with all of those eateries. “Our tacos are just like you’ll find in Mexico,” he said. “We don’t use cheese, we just used seasoned beef.” Another signature item from Angie’s Cantina is the sangria, a

red wine punch. “We’re the only place in town I know of doing sangrias,” Peter said. “They are virtually hangover-proof.” He said Angie’s Cantina’s sangrias consist completely of wine, whereas some places add brandy or other spirits that produce a stronger, harsher effect. Peter said the beers, wines and other drinks his restaurant now offers add to the relaxed atmosphere. When they acquired the space, they found the restaurant had an uncomfortable environment. “It wasn’t what we wanted,”
he said. The Muljadis invested in new flooring because the old floor was slippery and hazardous. They also bought new tables, artwork and lighting, and they repainted the walls for a more Hispanic feel. “Good food, good wine, good music” is the slogan Peter is working under. “We want people to come hang out and just relax,” he said. They’ve also experimented with theme nights. Recently they held a salsa night, which Peter said turned out very well. “Places like La Fuente are
good to take your parents to, and you could bring your parents here, too, but the drinks make it more grown-up,” Peter said. Angie’s Cantina has acquired a wider variety of clientele since its update. The new menu attracts professors, graduate students and locals as well as the college students who have always frequented the restaurant. Despite all the changes, Peter and Iwan have more plans in the works as they look to remodel further. “We want to be something different,” Peter said.

Mayhem Comics nominated for award
Cancer Center fund-raiser highly successful event
Mayhem Comics and Games, an Ames standard since 1990, has been nominated for an Eisner Award at Comic-Con 2010. “It’s basically the comic book world’s Oscars,” said Chris Pellack, manager of Mayhem Comics and Games. Like the Academy Awards, there are different categories of Eisners, ranging from writing, to drawing, to retailing. Mayhem is nominated for The Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award. Unlike the Academy Awards, however, nominees for the Eisners are chosen by comic fans, and fans get to vote in the final awards. Pellack said it was “a moment of pride” when they learned that a customer had nominated the store for the national award. Once a store is nominated, they must submit a video package to qualify for the final competition. Mayhem’s video will include descriptions of their store operations, displays, events and testimonials from customers. The videos are then judged, and the top six stores will be chosen as finalists. The winner will be announced July 23 at Comic-Con in San Diego, Calif. Pellack said he plans to travel to Comic-Con if Mayhem makes the final cut or not. He said the convention is an opportunity to learn about the industry and the other nominated stores.

By Micaela Cashman Daily Staff Writer The William R. Bliss Cancer Center, part of Mary Greeley Medical Center in Ames, hosted its annual fund-raising event May 1. More than 200 people attended the event, which was themed “We’re off to the Races,” and it raised more than $204,000. Activities included bidding on silent and live auction packages, playing casino games and betting on the Kentucky Derby Races also going on that night. The cancer center offers patients in central Iowa quality cancer care close to home. Stacy Dreyer, event chairwoman and MGMC auxiliary president, was happy regarding the turnout and the amount of donations. “We all worked together for a great cause — all wanting to make a difference to those affected by cancer,” Dreyer said. “I’d especially like to thank the many sponsors, donors and attendees for their support.” Participants in MGMC foundation’s sponsorship program made the event possible.

Ames Chamber of Commerce to host China trip By Micaela Cashman Daily Staff Writer The Ames Chamber of Commerce will partner with the Greater Des Moines Partnership to host a trip to China in September. Dan Culhane, president of the chamber, said the purpose of the trip is to introduce its members to the Chinese economy and present them with opportunities to do business there. “We already have a number of businesses between Des Moines and Ames that have a presence in Asia,” Culhane said. Those businesses include biotechnology and seed companies. The trip will cater to people who have not traveled to China before. Culhane said he hopes to open doors and eliminate the mystery of business in China. Along with business opportunities, Culhane said trip members can also reconnect with alumni and recruit students to study in Des Moines and Ames. So far, about 15 people have expressed interest in going on the trip. Their goal is to have 40 to 50 people in attendance. “We have a nice array of diverse business people expressing interest,” Culhane said. The trip will take place Sep. 1-8.
Editorial board seeks diversity Beginning this summer, the Iowa State Daily Editorial Board will no longer be a voice from the Iowa State Daily. It’s time for a change: We want it to be your voice. We are looking for students from any major and background to be on our editorial board. The only newsroom person that will sit on this board is the opinion editor. Really. That’s it. The power is now in your hands. Editors are not more informed on certain issues than other community members. Surely there are thousands of students out there that are more knowledgeable than staffers on certain subjects. For those interested, members will attend a meeting once or twice a week to discuss, as a group, various topics. Members will also be responsible to bring a couple ideas — current events, issues — to the meeting as a possible idea to become an editorial. Don’t worry, no writing experience is necessary. We want the six students to represent the diversity of Iowa State — the seven colleges, the multicultural population, the greek community, undergraduate students, graduate assistants, etc. All selected members will be public. Editorials can be thought-provoking or silly. It’s really up to you. What do you want to talk about today? Stop by the Iowa State Daily, 108 Hamilton Hall, or e-mail opinion@iowastatedaily if you are interested in a position on the new, communityrun editorial board. Editor in Chief

Citizens must take initiative for change D o you know how the Kool-Aid guy jumps through a wall yelling “OOOHHHH YEEAAHHH,” in his dark, creamy, sexual chocolate voice? I hear that exact thing in my head every time I think about it; the disaster in the Gulf just keeps getting better and better. If the problem climaxes in the Gulf and actually catches fire, making the world’s largest oil fire, my head might explode. It’s not that I’m being malicious, or that I actually think what’s happening in that region of the world with the oil spill is a good thing. It’s that after years of saying going green doesn’t matter, or that using reusable shopping bags and holding your nose in the air doesn’t change anything, I can’t help but gloat. By all means, don’t call your government representatives and demand to know why we haven’t started a viable alternative to petrol fuel. Instead, you should make a show of how much you care by using a cloth grocery sack. Get a sticker that says how green you are, and put it on the back of your car — hell, paint yourself green. Completely neglect to think about how

much that doesn’t matter if we keep using gasoline. Oh, but that problem’s too big, isn’t it? Just like the national debt, just like world peace, just like gun control, abortion and any other issue that matters ad nauseum. It’s just too big, why bother caring? You just can’t figure it out, it’s too complicated. Besides, you could be too busy, going to the bar to get smashed, watching TV, or gossiping about things that don’t matter. No way no how are you about to think about anything that’s relevant. I get a real, “I told you so” rush out of some things. I know it’s kind of weird. Maybe I should see someone about it. The more upset people get about something, the more I like it. It gives me this
warm fuzzy feeling that’s somewhere between opening a fight with a head butt or holding the trigger down on an automatic, belt-fed weapon. You didn’t care when you should have cared, and now it’s time to reap what grew from the seeds of your apathy. Maybe that’s why I can’t help but crack a smile at the Gulf disaster. Now it’s being found that the leak is substantially worse than the government and BP led us to first believe, according to the New York Times. Not only that, but as reported by the New York Times, “We’re not going to take any extra efforts now to calculate flow there at this point. It’s not relevant to the response effort, and it might even detract from the response effort,” said BP representative Tom Mueller. Listen to that wise corporate man. How he points out obviously, knowing anything about the current situation at the actually sight of the flow of oil would be a bad thing. Not only would being equipped with more knowledge be bad, it would hinder the response effort. Orwell said it best when he wrote, “Ignorance is strength.”
Why wouldn’t BP blatantly lie to us? If I were BP, I’d lie to us. I’d tell us that the oil spill is a good thing. That it’s actually helping the environment. Even if it’s laughably obvious what’s actually going on, the American public isn’t going to say anything. We’re just going to keep going to the mall, watching TV, and caring way too much about sports. Relevant things don’t matter to us. Remember when everyone cared about Haiti? How it was a huge deal? How we were going return Haiti to its former glory of third world country by texting $10 to them? Why aren’t people texting money to oil clean up bank accounts at something to the tune of $100 a pop? Because we feel entitled to that oil, and if something goes wrong others will pick up the pieces. So you’ll have to grant me my moments of dark humor, because in the end the humor is the only thing that makes me feel better about horrible things that are beyond my control. Until the American collective, the silent majority, decides that they are going to pick up their phones and call their representatives, nothing is going to change.
‘Shattered Memories’ shows wrong idea of horror
iddle me this, riddle me that. Who’s afraid of the big bad ... crap, I don’t know a synonym for “video game” that rhymes with “that.” Oh well. Thankfully, this column is about horror and entertainment, not poetry and rhymes — although that opening line was indeed frightfully bad. As those of you who read my blog may already know, I really liked the new “Silent Hill: Shattered Memories” for Wii. Unsurprisingly, Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw over at Zero Punctuation didn’t. Now, I realize that hopeless cynicism is more or less Yahtzee’s trademark, much like critical review is a staple of Roger Ebert’s writing. Just as video game journalists in the industry have argued Ebert’s “video games can never be art” statement, I can, and will, argue against the invincible Yahtzee. As the infamous Brit said in his video review, “The horror of a formless, unknowable evil is diminished when you attach a human face to it.” Now even though he’s specifically referring to the cult sub/main/hidden/whatever-plot in the “Silent Hill” franchise — so it’s possible he’s just complaining about the humans not being scary — it’s pretty difficult to misconstrue his intentions later on, toward the end of the review. Essentially, Yahtzee is saying that for something to be horrifying, it needs to be visceral, grotesque, impossible or that it needs to get your adrenaline surging from the gooey fear center of your brain. He laments, as others have, the “Nightmare” sections of the game, calling out their predictability. Since you know there aren’t any monsters in the non-Nightmare portions of the game, you could walk through with a relatively safe and secure feeling snuzzled warmly against your heart. Could, mind you. People railing against “Shattered Memories” have the wrong idea of what horror is, I think. They want the game to put them into a fear-induced haze, ears prickling at every creak and groan. “Satisfy me!” they scream, like a desperate, hormone-drunk teen on prom night — OK, so my metaphors aren’t as vivid or clever as

Yahtzee’s, bite me. Just because “Shattered Memories” isn’t a pusfilled gore-fest with cockroach men scrambling from underneath vans, it’s deemed not scary enough? I call shenanigans. You need to be willing to let yourself be horrified while playing a horror game. Horror is murder. Horror is abuse. Horror is rape. These aren’t things that are going to make you run and duck under your covers for immediate shelter, but that’s because that’s not what horror does. What Yahtzee and others seem to want is terror. As author Devendra Varma wrote in his book “The Gothic Flame,” “The difference between Terror and Horror is the difference between awful apprehension and sickening realization: between the smell of death and stumbling against a corpse.” In “Shattered Memories,” we can apply the same logic. The “awful apprehension” is the fear of being pursued, present in the Nightmare stages of the game. The “sickening realization” is when you allow yourself to reflect on what at first seem to be cosmetic changes of characters. It’s not just that Officer Cybil is wearing a cleavage-baring, skin-tight uniform as opposed to a conservative jacket, it’s that you, through your decisions, indicated a predisposition towards sexual objectification — something no one should be proud of — which is what gives that character her new appearance. Sure it’s not sickening realization on the level of the second “Silent Hill’s” twist regarding James and his wife, but when you finally see the dynamic between characters in “Shattered Memories”, you’ll appreciate this new title all the more for its subtlety. Or at least, I did. “Shattered Memories” places responsibility into the player’s hands,
making you this world’s caretaker. If someone is a drunk, if they’re violent, if their life is constructed around shallow vanity, it’s because you allowed them to be that way. That burden should crush you. That emotional baggage should haunt you. That’s horror, exactly as it should be.

or the first time in almost 70 years, neither of the two main parties, labour and conservative, won a parliamentary majority in the British elections held a week ago. That’s important because the majority determines the executive branch, namely the prime minister and cabinet. Largely, this failure to garner a majority by either party was due to a very dissatisfied electorate. The British people were upset about the economy, huge budget deficits and lackluster leadership. A minority party, the liberal Democrats - led by charismatic leader Nick Clegg - was able to capitalize on public frustration. They won enough votes to force a main party to make concessions and form a coalition government. The conservatives and liberal Democrats announced an agreement Wednesday to form a coalition. Conservative leader David Cameron said, “It will be an administration united behind three key principles: freedom, fairness and responsibility.” What does this mean for the November mid-term elections in the United States? Public anger about the economy and federal budget deficits will likely have a significant effect upon the elections. As seen in Great Britain, those issues helped galvanize an electorate and also caused a three percent increase in voter turnout. It‘s hard to say who favors here. It should favor the Republicans. They are generally seen as a party that supports smaller government and is pro-business. However, many are dissatisfied with both parties right now, since it seems neither have solutions to the growing problems the federal government is currently facing. So it likely depends on what happens with the Tea Party movement which was borne out of all the current frustration with the federal government. Will it become its own political party? Will its supporters vote Republican or even vote Libertarian? From early results, it seems the movement has changed the landscape of the Republican Party within some states. Currently, Sen. Bob Bennett, R-Utah, has served three terms, and already lost in a bid for a fourth term in the Republican primary. Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, a moderate Republican, left the Republican primary for Senate to run as an independent. He was deemed not conservative enough by many Republicans. “The reason Crist lost the GOP nomination was because he supported the Obama stimulus, then denied he supported it - and lost a lot of his following because of this,” said Sean Hannity, conservative talk show host. So it seems, from early indicators, most in the Tea Party movement believe it is better to work within an existing party and not form a third party. They have created change by throwing out those not ideologically pure enough for them. However, if a third party can produce a charismatic leader, much like Nick Clegg in Britain or Ross Perot in the 1990s. There is no reason to believe it couldn’t have a measure of success at the national level. If it can happen in a country like Great Britain, it can certainly happen in the United States, despite the different political and voting systems.
