Former UNT men’s basketball coach passes away BY SEAN GORMAN Senior Staff Writer

W hile the men’s basketball team continues to grow at UNT, the program lost a legend who helped build Mean Green basketball four decades ago. For mer men’s ba sketball coach Bill Blakeley died Wednesday morning at age 76. He had been battling a lasting illness, but his exact cause of death remains unknown. Blakeley led the team from 1976-1983, reaching 20 wins in each of his first three seasons.

“I learned a lot from him. When I first got here we were able to communicate a lot when I first got here,” head coach Johnny Jones said. “He was a friend and a mentor who really helped me with my transition to UNT.” The Willis Point native reached 100 wins faster than any other coach, has the fourth-best winning percentage in Mean Green history at and ranks third all-time in wins with 134. History was made under Blakeley in 1976 when UNT earned its first and only Top 20

game and life.” Blakeley also coached Ken Williams, UNT’s all-time leader in rebounds, along with three other members of the school’s top 10 rebound list. The member of the UNT Athletic Hall of Fame continued to impact the program after leaving, as his assistant Jimmy Gales brought UNT to its first NCAA Tournament berth after working with Blakeley for nine years. Before joining the Mean Green, Blakeley coached at the pro level, leading the Dallas

Chaparrals of the American Basketball Association to a 25-36 record during the 19701971 season. “He had an array of experience after coaching in the ABA and I think that made him a better coach,” Lyons said. “He knew how to handle us after coaching there.” Staying in sports but pursuing a new interest, Blakeley became an agent and started Talent Sports International, representing the likes of Karl Malone, Hakeem Olajuwon, Joe Dumars and Spud Webb.

Canales starts new journey as interim head coach BY BEN BABY

Senior Staff Writer When the University of South Florida started its football program in 1997, it didn’t have helmets. It didn’t have a practice field, shoulder pads or a fence. But it did have Mike Canales, who was then an offensive coordinator. Ten years later, in his second stint with the Bulls, Canales, along with former head coach Jim Leavitt, helped South Florida achieve the No. 2 ranking in the Bowl Championship Series in 2007. Now, as interim head coach of the Mean Green, Canales will look to pull off a miraculous turnaround in Denton, bringing UNT back among the elite in the Sun Belt Conference. “Do you see that beautiful stadium being built right there?” Canales said, pointing to the skeleton of the new football stadium. “I’d sure like to be a part of that, because this place is going nowhere but up. This is a gold mine that’s ready to take off.” Canales has made a few stops on his trip to the top, with detours at Arizona, North Carolina State and the New York Jets, just to name a few. The interim head coach has worked with the likes of Norm Chow and Herm Edwards, and provided guidance to players like San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. In Canales’ office, a signed frame of Rivers by the quarterback sits atop a bookshelf, which serves as a testament to the job he has done as a coach. “He’s one of the best I’ve ever been around, as far being able to get the best out of players, being

able to motivate guy to their best, and relate to them,” said Larry Scott, an assistant coach and tight ends coach at USF. Scott not only coached alongside Canales, but also played for him during his time at USF. Before his coaching days, Canales was a three-year letter winner at Utah State, playing quarterback for the Aggies. Canales earned the nickname “Chico” for his resemblance to Freddie Prinze on the TV show “Chico and the Man.” His son, T.J. Canales, has assumed his role in Logan, Utah, where he is also playing quarterback. “He’s always been there for me no matter what,” T.J. Canales said. “If I needed help with learning different techniques, sending me to camps, taking me to practice with him, he’s always helped. Everyone that I know that knows him thinks he’s great, so I’ve always wanted to be like him.” Throughout his coaching career, Canales has built a reputation as a man who was able to recruit among top schools, snatching talent away from the likes of Florida State, Miami and Florida. “What he did here recruitingwise was remarkable,” said Kevin Patrick, an assistant coach and defensive tackles coach at USF. “Everybody plays a part, but Mike was the guy that really built those relationships with those players.” Despite a difference in time zones and 1,134 miles, the Patrick and Canales families still remain close to this day. “They call him Uncle Mike, they call him Uncle Chico,”

MIKE CANALES Patrick said. “To tell you the truth, I look at him as a brother and uncle. He’s one of the most loveable guys you’ll ever meet. We consider him family. Mike’s one of the most quality people I’ve ever met in my life.” Along with a storied past and a trail of success, Mike Canales is away from his wife, Carol Canales, who currently resides in Sunset Beach, N.C. Carol, who was known to her husband’s players as “Mama C,” was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in September 2007. When the former USF offensive coordinator was offered the same position at UNT, Carol decided to stay in North Carolina to spend her efforts on maintaining her health and would move to Denton if her husband received the head coaching job in Denton. For her 50th birthday, Mike Canales gave his wife a CD containing a song about her. A USF kicker who moonlighted as rapper when he wasn’t punting pigskins wrote the serenade for Carol. Her husband’s caring persona makes her believe he has what it takes to lead the Mean Green.

UNT, city bring music to kids Lawsuit involves millions BY TIM MONZINGO Senior Staff Writer

Children will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with a variety of instruments this Saturday at the fifth instrument petting zoo. The event, put on by the Greater Denton Arts Council and UNT, is part of SuperArts Saturdays, a series of courses and events designed to introduce the world of art to elementary school children in grades two through five. “It’s an instrument exploration day for elementary children grades two through five just to give them the opportunity to explore art and music,” said Don Taylor of the music faculty, the event coordinator. The event will begin at 10 a.m. at the Center for Visual Arts and kicks off with UNT graduate students performing in various ensembles for attendees. An important part of running

the event is the students who donate their time to help kids learn about music, Taylor said. “It’s purely volunteer, just out of the goodness of their heart, which is really nice,” he said. “I think it really speaks to their motivation to make a difference in kids’ lives.” Taylor said getting kids involved in music early opens up a pastime they can enjoy for the rest of their lives. “There are a lot of leisure pursuits that are great, but when you’re dealing with something that’s physical, like sports, at a certain age you can’t do that, whereas music oftentimes continues regardless of age,” he said. The deadline for registering a child is Friday, Greater Denton Arts Council administrative assistant Jennifer Wohlrab said, but there will be a walk-up registration table at the event. “We also have a download-

able brochure at dentonarts.com [or] they can also call us here if they want to register that way, at 940-382-2787,” she said. E-mail applications should include the child’s name, grade level, school, home address, phone number and parents’ names and e-mails, she said. Taylor said if they have no other reason, people should come out for something a little different. “I would say overall just to have fun,” he said. “It’s not the usual thing you do.”

A nyone who purchased tickets from Ticketmaster online within an 11-year span is now part of a class-action lawsuit regarding allegedly fraudulent fees imposed by the company. In 2003, Curt Schlesinger of Illinois and Peter LoRe of New York filed claims against Ticketmaster for mislabeling fees. As of May 13, 2010, the suit has broadened to include anyone who purchased online tickets from Ticketmaster from Oct. 21, 1999 through May of this year. “[The fees were a] profit generator desig ned to ma x i m i ze Ticket master’s overall profit by obtaining a bottom-line dollar amount on deals with its clients, and had no known connection to the actual ticket fulfill-

ment costs,” according to the lawsuit filed on June 9, 2009. T he d i s put e r e v ol v e s around two specific fees: a fraudulent order processing fee and an increased charge for UPS shipping beyond the actual shipping charges. Attorney Kathryn McCauley, the director of Student Legal Services, said she didn’t know enough about the case to offer her legal advice, but that she is familiar with class-action suits. “A good def i n it ion of a class-action is a type of lawsuit in which the claims and rights of many people are decided in a single case,” McCauley said. The lawsuit holds t hat because the order processing fee was placed alongside other fees, such as the convenience charge, the fee led customers to believe that it was associ-

ated with an actual service. “Consu mers cou ld not rea sonably avoid pay i ng these fees,” the lawsuit reads. “The fees are mandatory and imposed by Ticketmaster on a l l Inter net t icket purchases.” According to the lawsuit, the total amount paid to the compa ny f rom t he order processing fees over the time period stated is more than $100 million. Ticket ma ster ha s a l so been accused of ma rk ing up the price paid for UPS delivery. Nick Torrez, a pre-biology freshma n, recog nizes t he va lue of t he convenience provided by Ticketmaster. “[Ticketmaster] is helpful if you don’t want to get up and go get tickets yourself,” Torrez said.

Official clarifies drug policy BY ISAAC WRIGHT Senior Staff Writer

In response to the call for reformation of UNT’s drug policy by the UNT chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, a university official clarified the current policy for the Student Government Association. At Wednesday’s SGA meeting Maureen McGuinness, assistant vice president for Student Affairs, presented the facts and provided the reasoning behind the policy. McGuinness said although it is true that students are taken out of on-campus housing after a single violation concerning marijuana, the authorities are never notified of the offense the first time. The infractions are viewed as an administrative concern, and the students are required to meet with an official from the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities. Mc Gu i n ne s s e x pla i ne d that students caught drinking

under-age in campus housing are given a warning the first time because of the inherent difference between the two substances. “Marijuana is never legal,” McGuinness said. “Alcohol is a privilege at the age of 21.” As it stands, students will be suspended from the university after their second or third offenses with marijuana. McGuinness said the university has weakened its stance on marijuana in recent years. “You could smoke a joint and share it with five of your friends and all five would be immediately suspended,” McGuinness said. “That was just six years ago.” NORML asked the SGA last week to help the group make the punishments for alcohol and marijuana violations equal. Some NORML arguments were that UNT’s drug policy eliminates the possibility of a second chance and that it was so strict that some may think

twice about enrolling at UNT. McGuinness said that with “36,000 students and growing,” that doesn’t appear to be an issue. “If anything, our drug policy holds you to being a higher level of student,” McGuinness said. The SGA is the student-led governmental body at UNT. After hearing McGuinness speak, some student senators still think the policy should be examined. “I support the principle of getting [marijuana and alcohol] equal, but I know the university has concerns,” said Devin Axtman, a senator for the College of Arts and Sciences. Victor Figueroa, also a senator for the college, said more research needs to be done about the issue. “I think we need to look into it more,” Figueroa said. “Do a little more research into what other campuses are doing and what their drug policies are compared to their alcohol policies.”

Suit to be settled in January Continued from Page 1 Kelsey Hughen, a hospitality management sophomore, said Ticketmaster is wrongfully taking advantage of its position. “They shouldn’t be ripping people off like that,” Hughen sa id. “Nowadays, you do everything online including buying concert tickets, so you shouldn’t have to pay extra just to order them online.” McCauley said sometimes

a class-action suit can help the members, but other times it’s rea lly not t hat important. “I think Netf lix was the subject of a class-action lawsuit a while ago, but those in the class didn’t really enjoy much benefit,” McCauley said. “I was part of the class, but it wasn’t worth it to try to find the documentation required.” According to the lawsuit, pa r t icipat ion in t he Ticketmaster class is simple.

Anyone who is a part of the lawsuit received an e-mail informing them of their class status. According to the e-mail, members are automatically participants in the suit and do not have to take any extraneous action. The e-mail sent to class members states Ticketmaster holds that its actions are not illegal, and the case will be settled by a non-jury trial beginning Jan. 26.

Baby Talk: Denton needs talent Canales fills coaching vacancy Opinion By Ben BaBy

Senior Staff Writer With the departure of Todd Dodge, the search for the next head football coach is on. It sounds like a great premise for a reality TV show. However, with UNT’s current athletic budget, that show would probably get picked up by NTTV not ESPN. For starters, this would have to be hosted by athletic director Rick Villarreal. He’s the one conducting the national search. The new coach would join the likes of Jack Sisco, Odus Mitchell and Hayden Fry as a few of the people who have graced the sidelines at UNT. Mitchell has the most wins in school history, 216, while Sisco, who coached the team from 19291941, has a winning percentage of .653, the highest of any football head coach. The names that can be thrown into the mix for next season can be defined in three categories. They sound sexy, but it’s a fantasy Mike Leach has been a popular name that UNT students love to toss around. Leach, the former head coach of Texas Tech, is probably not going to come here. Even if he were to come here, I do not

see Leach sticking around for too long, as another offer would entice him. Our budget probably couldn’t afford him anyway. Kevin Wilson, the current offensive coordinator at Oklahoma, is another person who sounds good, but realistically will not find his way to Denton. Wilson won the Frank Broyles Award in 2008, which goes to the nation’s top assistant coach. Honestly, when you are the offensive coordinator at such a prestigious school, you are probably aiming for an ocean instead of the pond that is UNT. They might be nice, but… Willie Fritz, the current head coach at Sam Houston State, boasts a great résumé. Fritz was the head coach at Central Missouri from 1997-2009 before accepting the job at SHSU. Fritz went 97-47 in his time at Central Missouri. He also went 39-5-1 at Blinn College, winning national championships in 1995 and 1996. Fritz just started his tenure at SHSU and I highly doubt he will leave anytime soon. Major Applewhite is remembered by many as the former Texas quarterback. However, Applewhite is currently the assistant head coach at UT after two years as offensive coordinator at Rice and Alabama. He sounds like he has been places, but I would like to see the next head coach

have more experience on the sidelines. They are down to coach In this whole national search, there are really only two names that stand out from everybody else: Jeff Bower and Mike Canales. Bower sounds like a very viable option, coaching 17 years at Southern Mississippi, ending his tenure with 14 straight winning seasons. It is also very noteworthy that Villarreal is an alumnus of USM, which could play a big role in deciding who is going to be the head coach next season. Canales, the current interim head coach at UNT, brings in a wealth of knowledge from his prior stops, which include North Carolina State, the New York Jets of the NFL, and the University of South Florida. Canales made his mark at USF, helping build up a solid program in the state of Florida, which is one of the toughest states to recruit in. With all of that being said, it will be interesting to see who is named head coach. Thankfully, it is not going to come down to a national vote. In a state dominated by football, the christening of a new leader will be highly anticipated, along with the results he will bring.

continued from page 1 “We’ve got these next five games for him to impact the leadership of the program, to instill a solid platform of discipline with these young man, which is an absolute must to win,” Carol Canales said. “There is no luck in winning.” Canales has three sons, Christopher, Kody and T.J. The oldest son, Christopher Canales, was born on game day as his father was planning to lead Utah State against Pacific in 1982. Mike Canales skipped the game and was there for the delivery C h r i stopher Ca na les said his dad wasn’t always around during his childhood because of an extremely busy schedule, but the negatives came with a slew of positives, which included a meeting with John Madden. “Two of the five guys in my wedding line were former players of my dad,” Christopher Canales said. “My dad is just the type of guy where kids just gravitate toward him and kids just love him, and they’ve always played for him.” The coaching transition has been especially tough for UNT redshirt sophomore

UNT will hit the road to face Western Kentucky on Saturday. quarterback Riley Dodge, whose father Todd Dodge was the head coach before Canales Riley Dodge was also coached by his father at Southlake Carroll High School, when his career culminated with his being one of the most coveted recruits in the nation. Mike Canales sat down with Riley Dodge, who will return as the team’s starter this weekend against Western Kentucky. “We’ve had a long talk,” Riley Dodge said. “He’s been very supportive and so have the other coaches.

Clubs brings cultural Training session to celebrations together teach GLBT awareness CHRISTINA MLYNSKI

BY STEPHANIE ROSS

Senior Staff Writer

Intern

When Britt Myer, a general studies junior, graduated from high school and decided to attend UNT, she said it was refreshing to find people with similar interests. Four years later, she’s proud to be part of a club that hosts an event that combines Japanese culture w ith an A merican holiday. Halloween Matsuri, created last year by the Mu Epsilon Kappa Anime Club, will celebrate the event with booths, contests, prizes, karaoke and a rave. “We really want to give our international students a taste of home as well as open the community up to different cultures,” said Myer, the public relations chairwoman for the group. The event is free, open to the public and takes place from 6-10 p.m. Friday in the One O’Clock Lounge. Breaking Stereotypes The Mu Epsilon Kappa Anime Club was approached last year by the Japanese Language Exchange to host the event, Myer said. Since its creation the group has grown, providing a bigger budget for events like the Ha l loween Matsu r i, Myer said. T he Ja p a ne s e C u lt u r e Organization, UNT Gamers Club and Japanese Language Exchange will have festival booths set up, Myer said. More t ha n 10 0 people attended Halloween Matsuri last year, and Myer said she expects the turnout to be bigger this year. “It wasn’t just anime fans,” she said. “A lot of people from different walks of life came out.”

A costume contest participant shows off his costume during last year’s Halloween Matsuri contest. Myer wants people to understand that the group isn’t only involved with anime. “We don’t sit in a room and just watch anime hours upon hours,” she said. “We do other activities.” Students like Megan Vander Pluym, a literature junior, want the event to continue drawing people in. “I think it seems like it’s fun to sort of make a mixer of different kinds of activities to best explore the ideas of a culture,” she said.

said, and pumpkin carving and costume contests will have multiple categories for people to compete in. “People’s costumes are very intricate,” said Erin Langlotz, the public relations chairwoman for the Japanese Culture Organization. “I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s new this year.” T he Ja p a ne s e C u lt u r e Orga ni zat ion’s boot h w i l l feature origami and Japanese calligraphy, she said. “It’s a great setup because all of the clubs are working together,” Langlotz said. Ot her boot hs w i l l have carnival games like Destroy Tokyo, a beanbag toss, and Lollipop Pool for people to play, Myer said. Severa l loca l businesses are providing gift certificates and prizes for the event, Myer said. “Exposure to the language and to different aspects of the culture is a very refreshing concept,” Vander Pluym said.

What started out in 1999 by t wo facu lt y members has turned into a session of information that is still useful today. Senior diversity specialist T heresa Braddy sa id she hop e s to c ont i nue A l l y Training, a free four-hour course for students, faculty a nd st a f f to ga i n sk i l l s relating to the gay, lesbian, bisex ua l a nd t ra nsgender community. “Basically, Ally Training is creating sa fe zones for oppressed groups of people on campus,” Braddy said. “A l ly Tra ining ca n be for a nyone, but t h is session mainly focuses on the gay, lesbia n, bisex ua l, t ra nsgender community.” Tra ining w ill sta r t at 8 a.m. Friday in the University Union 417. Uyen Tra n, a g raduate student, oversees the planning and implementation of Ally Training and believes it’s a great way to educate people. “This training is for indiv idua ls who w ish to help UNT maintain and further enhance t he abilit y to be a safe environment,” Tran said. “We all want to UNT to be free of harassment and discrimination so everyone can be at their best.” After completing the fourhour training, participants w ill t hen be identif ied as

“allies” to the GLBT community on campus. “Through Ally Training, you lea rn dif ferent terms and learn how to be sensit ive a nd not derogat ive toward the GLBT communit y,” Braddy sa id. “Once completed, participants will receive certificates and pins so that people can know that they are allies for the GLBT community.” After the training sessions, participants can attend a pa nel t hat involves GLBT students, the Denton Police Department and Counseling Center sta f f to ask questions. “I think it’s a great way to learn more about the GLBT community,” anthropology sophomore Mindy Rice said. “They go through so much day-to-day, and I think that it is a great way to show that there are people out there who a re w i l ling to listen to them and actually care about what they are going through.” With 500 allies and 200 honorary allies, Ally Training prov ides a nu mber of resources people can use. “We have a lot of local and national resources students and faculty can use,” Braddy said. “We have information on mental health and how to identif y when someone needs help, especially with the number of suicides going on. We also have information on coming out and how you

should handle the situation. Ally Training basically is a good start to understanding the differences in our global community.” Cla rk Pomerleau of t he history faculty will speak at Friday’s session because of his involvement during his college years. “I think UNT has a real i nterest i n d iversit y a nd A l l y Tr a i n i n g p r o v i d e s more concrete information on the GLBT community,” Pomerleau said. “Students make up a massive part of UNT a nd interact w it h a lot of GLBT students, and I would even encourage staff to attend as well. The GLBT community could really use their help and support since t hey inter face w it h t hem daily.” Braddy believes that Ally Training helps UNT’s goal of becoming a n inclusive campus. “We are not here to question someone’s mora ls or beliefs,” Braddy said. “We are here to help them learn how to respect people and learn how to get rid of the fea r of judg i ng someone who is a little different. We are a growing community and Ally Training is a good f irst step to becoming an understanding and an aware community.” For registration information, contact Uyen Tran at Uyen. Tran@unt.edu.

Lecture to explore Middle Ages female hair removal BY ILEA MILARE

Contributing Writer Today, the Early British Literature Colloquium will present guest speaker Ruth Evans in “A Close Shave: Female Depilation in the Middle Ages.” Evans, a Dorothy McBride Orthwein Professor of English at St. Louis University in St. Louis, Mo., will discuss her latest researching involving female depilation, or hair removal, in the Middle Ages. “This paper explores the evidence for female depilation in pre-modern Europe,” Evans said in an e-mail. “[And] argues for the historicized and theorized understanding of the practice in the light of current feminist concerns about body hair and body image.” The Early British Literature Colloquium first began as a

small faction at least 12 years ago, and has since grown. “We now have two events each year,” Jacqueline Vanhoutte of the English faculty said in an e-mail. “We try to rotate speakers in the three sub-specialties that comprise early British literature – medieval, Renaissance and 18th century.” Evans’ research reveals that female depilation began far before Queen Elizabeth’s practice of shaving her forehead due to a receding hairline. The Sheela na Gig, found largely in Irish and British churches and castles, is a stone carving of a woman squatting down and pulling her vulva apart. Its origin is unknown, but Evans has found one Sheela na Gig statue in which the woman holds a razor and appears to be shaving her pubic hair. “The presence of excessive hair anywhere on a woman’s body in the Middle Ages might signify that she is monstrous, sexually wanton, or uncourtly,” Evans said. “But it might also protect

her and make her supernaturally powerful.” Nicole Smith of the English faculty specializes in medieval literature and is a member of the Early British Literature Colloquium and one of those responsible for bringing Evans to UNT. “Ruth Evans is a leading scholar in medieval literature and its connection with the sex and gender theories,” Smith said. “This particular lecture will appeal to students and scholars interested in not only medieval literature, but also in women’s studies and studies in sexuality.” Sarah Wilson, an English and philosophy senior, said she thinks the lecture will be interesting to students who haven’t considered the practice of hair removal in its historical context.

Rangers impacting city, economy Editorial In a strange turn of events, North Texas is talking about baseball instead of football in late October. The Cowboys are 1-5, Tony Romo is out for 6-8 weeks and the formerly bankrupt Texas Rangers are representing the American League in the World Series. The area is in a frenzy; Ranger fans are excited. Even the local economy is benefiting from the baseball hysteria. The Editorial Board believes the first Rangers World Series is not only great for the fans, but also great for the local community. The 2010 season was full of firsts for the Texas Rangers. Before this year, the Rangers won one playoff game in 39 years in three postseason appearances. They won their first playoff series against the Tampa Bay Rays, their first home playoff game against the New York Yankees and won their first pennant. Ranger fans couldn’t be more excited — it’s more than obvious when walking around campus. Students don their Rangers gear in full force every day, something that was rare in the past. The three sellouts in the league championship series brought $15,000 from the 8.25 percent sales tax and $1.25 million in economic impact to the areas as fans flooded bars and restaurants while celebrating the win. For the first time in history, Dallas-Fort Worth will host the World Series and the Super Bowl four months from each other. The Super Bowl brings in great revenue by itself — an expected $611.7 million. Adding two or three World Series games will bring in even more money to Arlington and the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Currently, the sold out World Series tickets are starting at $450 for general admission. In addition to the economic impact, the added revenue from ticket sales and national buzz will greatly help the Rangers pull themselves out of the hole from their previous bankruptcy. The Rangers have given the area a team to cheer for and have positively impacted a struggling economy. Arlington and the Dallas-Fort Worth area will benefit from this trip to the World Series morale-wise, economically and nationally. Go Rangers!

Campus Chat

Do you think the Rangers will win the World Series? Why or why not? “Heck yes! Everyone here is a Rangers fan and we have been cheering them on! They have to win it for us! They can do it, they beat the Yankees!”

Modern rock just isn’t interesting Out of all the things I’m passionate about — sports, movies, books, technology — music is what is most important. I couldn’t survive without rock music. But I’m not indie, not a metalhead, and not an emo (whatever that label is actually supposed to mean). I just enjoy good music whether it be in the mainstream or the latest band Pitchfork Media is ruthlessly advertising. Where is the “good music” though? It’s few and far between in the mainstream, even more sparse in the indie scene and nearly nonexistent in metal. In the past, we’ve had great bands thrive in the mainstream. Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Who, U2, Nirvana and Nine Inch Nails were, or still are, in some cases, great bands that were or are popular.

But where are the great new mainstream rock bands of today? Nickelback is an embarrassment to rock, as are Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace. Yet they still sell out arenas and stadiums by the bunches. Are they really the modern replacements for Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd? I certainly hope not. Muse might be considered “great” in the future, Nine Inch Nails are great, maybe legendary, and are still popular. Tool is fantastic and revolutionary, but they’re left over from the ‘90s like Nine Inch Nails — who’ve been popular for nearly 20 years. What else is there? It’s disappointing to look at the mainstream rock scene. Indie rock is generic and boring. Death Cab for Cutie is good, but not great. Modest Mouse was good, Arctic Monkeys

were never really good, Passion Pit is different but not that great. Not to mention these record labels have been stagnating and pushing this hippie, slow acoustic style for the past decade. Indie hasn’t changed at all — it was boring and still is. Meta l is barely wort h mentioning here, it’s so bad. Old metal bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera — all great. However, the poor post-hardcore scene is actually quite humorous and the new heavy metal scene is absolutely pathetic. The posthardcore bands of today recycle the same song while screaming irritatingly. When so-called heavy metal bands like Trivium are considered the next wave of heavy metal, the scene is dire. The only modern metal band I can find respectable is, maybe, The Dillinger Escape Plan, but it has

ventured further and further into the progressive spectrum in past few years. The progressive scene is much more interesting. The Mars Volta, VAST, Porcupine Tree and Isis are intriguing progressive bands, but they aren’t very popular. I live off of music from the past 40 years in the rock scene and have little interest in modern rock. I’m a die-hard Muse and Nine Inch Nails fan, but nothing else is very engaging to me. Every now and then I’ll stumble onto something new and interesting on the radio, but the band disappears immediately. Until then, I’ll be waiting for the next great band.

Concealed guns a constitutional right Who has the right to carry weapons? The Constitution states “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” That’s great and all, but who is the Militia? “Who are the militia, if they be not the people of this country...? I ask, who are the militia? They consist of now of the whole people, except a few public officers,” said George Mason. If the father of the Bill of Rights had it wrong, then maybe one of his peers did Roger Sherman knew. During House consideration of a militia bill he said, “Conceived it to be the privilege of every citizen, and one of his most essential rights, to bear arms, and to resist every attack upon his liberty or property, by whomsoever made. The particular states, like private citizens, have a right to be armed, and to defend, by force of arms, their rights, when invaded.” The right to own and expose arms is the only physical property guaranteed by the Constitution. You might need a minute for that to sink in. W hen drafting ou r Constitution, debating and

arguing the thousands of topics, only 10 were selected for the Bill of Rights. What it should contain, what should the government not infringe upon? Of those rights guaranteed one specific category of property was identified — arms. They took deliberate means to secure weapon ownership as a cornerstone of American traditions. Yet we have violated that law ourselves by allowing and even supporting lesser legislation, the subjects clamor for false promise of “Gun Free Zones” and “Gun Control.” John Adams said it best “those who trade liberty for security have neither.” Those words will never lose their depth. Should we forfeit our constitutional right when entering public property? Are militia members, citizens of the state, not recognized in public facilities? If that was true all sort of tangents could be assumed. Is the use of public roads for transportation of personal arms unlawful? One of the tangents has become a rea lit y a nd is embodied by “Gun Free Zone” laws which prevent the intentions of the founders in public locations.

Do the signs of the promise of utopia ring true? No, they are farces. They are invoking malicious minded people to highlight areas and providing target rich environments such as public schools, libraries, hospitals and churches. There are many enemies to this philosophy that seek to bring light to “false claims made by pro-gun advocates.” The web site www.vpc.org/ ccwkillers.htm is dedicated to reporting deaths by “Concealed to Carry” permit owners and provides a summary account of the crime and the people involved. I have reviewed all summaries, yet I have not found one instance where the permit had provided an all-access pass to freely commit these despicable acts of violence. Did the people commit a violent crime? Yes. Were they punished for their crimes? Definitely. Did the CCW permit make any of their crimes possible? Absolutely not. These crimes committed were the result of irresponsible gun ownership with negligent and sometimes homicidal intent. These crimes could and have been duplicated

without the CCW permit. The solution to this problem is elementary and ironic as each of these summaries do not illustrate the simple fact that if the victims of the crimes did not have a weapon to deter the aggressor. To be able to produce a weapon of deterrence to stop the act from continuing — that is the principle behind CCW permits. As equal citizens under the laws of man we have the rights defense of self and of others. We take these rights as a heavy toll of responsibility that can be easily abused but when used correctly protection of innocent is our reward. The bravery of the founding fathers was to entrust the power of this grand experiment to the people. The power to fight madness, to fight tyranny and to entrust the eternal renewal of highest ideals of mankind in each generation without fear is their undying legacy. “Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.” — Thomas Jefferson William Cartwright is a mechanical engineering senior and can be reached at hoss1324@ yahoo.com.
