Patience tested as center sees delays Hill Outdated software causes server failure Alyson Gaharan News Editor

About 150 students in the Computer Based Testing Center in Himes Hall couldn’t submit their tests around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Meanwhile, more than 100 other students were left waiting outside the testing center, and as the minutes passed, the line grew longer. “People were pressing submit, but the tests weren’t going through,” said kinesiology junior Carley Gulino. “The people next to me had to retake the test three times. … People were getting really agitated.” With 625 students scheduled to take tests for the remainder of the day, Office of Assessment and Evaluation employees were scrambling to determine what exactly had caused the servers to fail. By 4 p.m., OAE Director Bobby Matthews had identified the problem: a glitch in the obsolete software. “We’ve known for some time TESTING CENTER, see page 11

White Pelicans flock to LSU Lakes in migration Birds fly south for cooler temperatures Gordon Brillon Staff Writer

As the seasons change and the chill of winter looms, the University falls into a new routine. Students pull their North Face fleeces out of the closet, lines at Starbucks stretch to eternity and groups of smokers huddle in the corners of buildings, taking shelter from the wind. While Louisiana weather and foliage don’t show off the same seasonal changes that can be seen in the northern reaches of the

country, there is one sure sign that winter is coming — the arrival in droves of the American White Pelican to the University Lake. Unlike the Louisiana state bird — the smaller Brown Pelican, which makes its home in the South year-round — the American White Pelican arrives on the Gulf Coast in November to take shelter from the colder temperatures in its breeding grounds farther north. White Pelicans have been making their way to Baton Rouge for about the last two weeks, according to biology senior James Klarevas. Flocks of approximately 300 birds could be seen at the University Lake on Tuesday. Klarevas, who hopes to study ornithology, or the study of birds,

in graduate school, said it seems the pelicans have moved south earlier than usual this year. “We’re seeing, across the board, a lot of earlier and later records for migration,” Klarevas said. “Obviously, people aren’t sure exactly what is causing it, but people tend to think it’s climate change-related.” Klarevas said he heard from friends that a small group of White Pelicans stayed in Baton Rouge for almost the full year, only migrating north in the middle of the summer. Renewable natural resources adjunct professor Alan Afton said some of the pelicans that have PELICANS, see page 11

Now “selfie” — the smartphone self-portrait — has been declared word of the year for 2013, according to Britain’s Oxford University Press. The publisher of the Oxford dictionaries said Tuesday that “selfie” saw a huge jump in usage in the past year, bursting from the confines of Instagram and Twitter to become mainstream shorthand for any self-taken photograph.

The deputy mayor of the municipality that includes Tongaat said construction should not have been taking place because contractors were not doing a proper job, the South African Press Association reported.

Short Gettysburg Address still remembered 150 years later

Coroner says body found in bayou is that of a homicide victim

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Thousands gathered at a Pennsylvania battlefield park Tuesday to honor a speech given 150 years ago that President Abraham Lincoln predicted would not be long remembered. The inspirational and famously short Gettysburg Address was praised for reinvigorating national ideals of freedom, liberty and justice amid a Civil War that had torn the country into pieces. “President Lincoln sought to heal a nation’s wounds by defining what a nation should be,” said Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett. Va. state senator stabbed; son dies of apparent suicide

Miss. basketball coach resigns after being accused of biting a player

(AP) — East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s detectives returned to the bayou on Monday after an autopsy determined a woman whose body was pulled from the waters over the weekend died of bluntforce injuries to her head, neck and chest. The Advocate reports Dr. Beau Clark, the East Baton Rouge Parish coroner, ruled the death a homicide. Deputies have identified the victim as 21-year-old Lindsay Ellixson of Livingston Parish. Detectives are investigating the possibility the body had been dumped into the Amite River and then floated into the bayou.

CARTHAGE, Miss. (AP) — A girls’ high school basketball coach in Mississippi has resigned after being accused of biting a player in the face. Leake County Sheriff Greg Waggoner says Leake Academy coach Doyle Wolverton is accused of biting the player during a timeout in a Nov. 12 game in Marion County. The player was brought to a hospital emergency room in Carthage after the team returned, and hospital employees called the sheriff’s office because the injury allegedly stemmed from an assault.

Police tell The Advocate 29-year-old Faye Cooper Smith, of Baker, was arrested Sunday and booked on charges of felony theft, forgery and monetary instrument abuse. It was unclear whether the women have attorneys.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Virginia state Sen.

Deeds was able to walk about 75 yards away from his home in Millboro, police said. He was in fair condition at a hospital.

Ceramics sale nearly tops annual totals on first day Deanna Narveson Contributing Writer

Ceramic plates, bowls and mugs lined the walkway of Free Speech Plaza as the Ceramic Art Student Association hosted its biannual sale, which will continue from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Thursday. The average week of the sale brings in about $6,000 in revenue, but Monday alone earned $5,800, according to CASA president Jenny Hager. Half of the revenue from the ceramics sale goes back to the individual artists and the other half goes to CASA’s treasury. It is used to bring in visiting artists from around the nation and send students to the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference in the spring semester. Last week, Jeremy Hatch, an artist who works with slip casting — a technique where molds are used for shaping clay — visited the University, and the organization plans on having more artists come in the spring with all events open to the public, Hager said. The graduate ceramics program at LSU was ranked eighth in the nation by U.S. News and World Report and only accepts two to three new students a year, said first year graduate student Jenni Lombardi. “It feels pretty awesome to be a part of this,” Lombardi said. “I was one of two people who entered the program this year.” Hager, who is a third year graduate student in the fine arts program, uses slip casting herself and said she likes to create pieces that fit into one another and have floral designs. Each art student has a style he or she enjoys using most, said ceramics and sculpture senior Emily Moody. “I like to make things that trick the user with angled edges,” Moody said. “I even tricked myself one time, and when I tried to set down the mug that I made, wine spilled everywhere.” Third year graduate student Autumn Higgins said she likes to depict the mundane moments of everyday life in her work. Her pottery depicts drawings of people with large eyes in different awkward moments. One unfinished piece shows the outline of people waiting in line at the supermarket. Higgins said she will be working on her thesis for graduation next semester and probably won’t go with the other students to the conference in March. “I have an exhibition in May,” Higgins said. “It’s going to be more of these pots portraying daily life and highlighting the more mundane aspects with the really exciting parts of life hidden in it.” Higgins grew up in Portland, Ore., and her grandparents were ceramic artists. Higgins said she entertained herself in artistic

ways growing up, and she has handmade sculpting tools from Italy that were a gift from her grandparents. “My whole life I’ve done a lot of drawing, and I’ve almost always done drawings of people,” Higgins said. “I’m trying to make my two-dimensional drawing go around a three-dimensional pot.” While at Southern Oregon University, where she got her undergraduate degree, Higgins started out in photography classes but ultimately decided to study ceramics because she said the energy and atmosphere in the ceramics community was really nice. After she graduates, Higgins said she is not sure what she will do. “I’d really like to apply for an art residency,” Higgins said. “But I would also like to be a studio artist. I don’t have a set plan.” Higgins’ artwork is among other ceramics students’ pieces on sale this week. photos by MARIEL GATES / The Daily Reveille

as early as the 17th century. The 79 titles depict various subjects concentrated in regions like the East Indies, Australia, Asia and Africa. Taylor said the works complete the collection Hill Memorial already has of ornithology books by providing examples from all over the world. The library’s prior collection focused more on birds of the New World. Taylor entered the rare book trade when he was 18 years old and has spent decades building his collection of rare books. When he was active in the rare book trade, the University used to buy books from him, Taylor said. After he entered rare ornithology book trade, Taylor said he needed a place to study rare bird books, and he used Hill Memorial’s resources to do this. “[Hill Memorial] is a wonderful place to work. I’ve had some wonderful times in that reading room,” Taylor said. One of the books donated is from 1703 and documents one of the earliest explorations of

Australia. The book has a world map inside the front cover, but Australia is only halfway depicted because the territory had not yet been fully explored, according to Michael Taylor, assistant curator of books for Hill Memorial. With the addition of these books to the library, Hill Memorial’s collection has expanded to help educate those wanting to learn about birds around the world, Michael Taylor said. The interaction between animals and humans is also depicted in many of the works, including drawings of dissection, he said. While this isn’t a new concept, the collection shows accounts of this from more than a hundred years ago, which is quite hard to find. The monetary value of the collection comes from the difficulty to find works of travel from such a long time ago, and any voyage books from an interesting place tend to be genuinely rare and valuable, Tom Taylor said.

JOHNNY

Tigers surge past UNO, 81-54 Second-half boost lifts team to victory

LSU has more to worry about Saturday than just Johnny Manziel

When squaring off with Texas A&M, the scheme is simple — stop sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel, and victory is all but assured. LSU can attest to this formula, as it devised the blueprint for stifling Manziel’s one-man circus act during last season’s 24-19 victory against the Aggies in College Station, Texas. The Tigers’ relentless harassment of the Heisman quarterback resulted in three sacks, and Manziel threw three interceptions while accounting for only 303 total yards. But when Texas A&M and LSU meet in Baton Rouge on Saturday, a single variable may disprove the equation. Though Manziel carries his team with athleticism and improvisational wizardry, the Aggies boast another dimension often overshadowed by the former Heisman winner. Behind the grinning façade of Johnny Football, Texas A&M is buttressed by a stable of running backs averaging more than 150 yards per game. The many-pronged Texas A&M rushing attack could spell trouble for the Tigers, who have allowed 190 yards or more on the ground in four games this season. Through 10 contests in 2013, LSU has conceded 208 more rushing yards than it did during last season’s entire 13-game schedule.

After a dismal first half, the LSU men’s basketball team found its rhythm and pulled away from the University of New Orleans for an 81-54 victory in the PMAC on Tuesday night. Senior guard Andre Stringer scored 18 second-half points to fuel the Tigers (2-1) in their second straight win. LSU led by only four points at halftime, and coach Johnny Jones took a share of the blame for his team coming out flat. “I was disappointed in our effort from the tip,” Jones said. “I didn’t think we came out focused and with the intensity level we needed tonight. UNO did an excellent job of game-planning and taking advantage of us because of the lack of aggressiveness we had early on.” LSU struggled in the opening minutes before it claimed a 22-11 lead and threatened to pull away nine minutes into the game. But the Tigers shot a putrid 2-of-18 for the rest of the half, allowing the Privateers (1-1) to chip away and make SOUND VICTORY, see page 7

Auburn solidifies No. 2 spot in Power Rankings THE SMARTEST MORAN JAMES MORAN Sports Columnist With just two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Southeastern Conference has boiled down to four teams fighting for two spots. Despite a wild weekend around the conference, all of the top teams held serve, so there is little movement at the top of this week’s rankings: 1. Alabama (10-0, 7-0 SEC) Alabama actually looked human against Mississippi State. The Tide turned the ball over four times in a sluggish 20-7 victory against the cowbells. A lackluster performance

would be discouraging for most teams, but it gives Nick Saban an opportunity to recapture his team’s focus for a tune-up against Chattanooga before facing Auburn with the SEC West title on the line. Last Week: 1 2. Auburn (10-1, 6-1 SEC) Gus Malzahn must be living right. With the Plainsmen’s SEC Championship hopes hanging by a thread against Georgia, quarterback Nick Marshall chucked up a prayer on fourth and long that was batted into the air, juggled and somehow caught by Ricardo Louis for the game-winning touchdown. Divine intervention set up one hell of an Iron Bowl. Last Week: 2 3. Missouri (9-1, 5-1 SEC) Missouri has its own

destiny in hand, and if it can survive a two-game gauntlet of Ole Miss and Texas A&M, it will win the SEC East. Missouri received good news coming out of its bye week, as coach Gary Pinkel announced quarterback James Franklin has been medically cleared to return. Freshman Maty Mauk played well in his absence, but Missouri is undefeated with Franklin at the helm this season. Last Week: 3 4. South Carolina (8-2, 6-2 SEC) South Carolina finished its SEC schedule and now has to sit back and hope Missouri loses.

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 MANZIEL, from page 5

While Manziel leads the Aggies with 611 rushing yards this season, the Texas A&M ground attack includes five backs that have at least 20 carries in 2013. Three of those five rushers average more than five yards per carry, and the Aggies are tied for 10th in the nation with 29 touchdowns on the ground. Senior Ben Malena leads the pack with 476 yards and a team-high nine rushing touchdowns. Malena is followed by a sophomore foursome that has scampered for a combined 886 yards and 12 touchdowns. Players emphasized keeping good technique and maintaining gap assignments against Texas A&M’s zone rushing scheme. LSU coach Les Miles said he wants the offense to sustain long drives to keep Manziel and the Aggies on the sidelines, but the Tigers’ defense will have to get them off the field first. “Well, you’re going to have to be in shape, that’s just the way it is,” Miles said. “They’ll come up and tempo you, and then obviously get snap after snap. You’re going to have to get yourself off the field defensively, and you hope that we

can keep the ball some amount of time so that there’s not a consistent theme there where the defense is taxed.” Even if the Tigers can stymie Texas A&M possessions, the Aggies’ sideline-to-sideline spread offense is designed to physically exhaust defenses. Should LSU fall prey to Manziel’s scramble drill, it will have to dig into the depth chart to secure the inside rushing lanes. The Tigers are unbeaten in the six games they outrushed their opponents, but they sport a 1-3 record when being outrushed, with the lone win coming against AlabamaBirmingham. In its first three losses, LSU was outgained on the ground by a combined 331 yards. For an LSU defense that has been overrun by dynamic offenses, containing Manziel alone is a tall order. But if the Tigers concentrate all their efforts on the sophomore quarterback, they may end up getting steamrolled by the rotation of Aggie runners.

I doubt he’d admit it, but Johnny Football has to know a 2-0 finish would most likely mean he takes home his second consecutive Heisman Trophy as well. Last Week: 4 6. Ole Miss (7-3, 3-3 SEC) A solid victory against Troy, the Rebel Black Bear’s fourth in a row, keeps them holding steady in this week’s rankings. Quarterback Bo Wallace and his trio of dangerous receiving threats give them enough firepower to potentially make it five in a row at home against Missouri. There is still a gap between Ole Miss and teams ahead of it, but a win this week would change that. Last Week: 6 7. LSU (7-3, 3-3 SEC) Saturday’s visit from Texas A&M has all the ingredients to be the highest-scoring game in the history of Tiger Stadium. Manziel has weapons, Zach Mettenberger has weapons and there are no signs of a competent defense in sight. Punters, take the afternoon off. The circus is coming to Baton Rouge, and it’s going to be a wild show. Last Week: 8 8. Vanderbilt (6-4, 3-4 SEC) The Commodores continued their climb up the rankings as Austyn Carta-Samuels returned in a win against Kentucky. Yes, the Wildcats are a doormat, but the Vanderbilt schedule somehow doesn’t get harder from there. With Carta-Samuels back throwing the ball to Jordan Matthews, the wins will keep on coming. Last Week: 9

9. Georgia (6-4, 4-3 SEC) No image captures one team’s season as well as the entire Georgia coaching staff falling to the ground as Auburn scored to retake the lead. The Bulldogs were dominated throughout the game before inspiring hope with a feverish comeback, only to ultimately have their backs broken on a miracle play. Anything that could go wrong for Georgia has, and now this season is a lost cause. At least with Kentucky up next, things can’t get worse — right? Last Week: 7 10. Mississippi State (4-6, 1-5 SEC) Mississippi State was competitive against Texas A&M and Alabama in consecutive weeks. The Bulldogs likely won’t make a bowl game, but they have risen slightly above some of the other four-win SEC teams lately. Last Week: 11 11. Florida (4-6, 3-5 SEC) The Gators just lost their fifth game in a row, but hey, they’re still a 27.5 point favorite against Georgia Southern. It’s like Tim Tebow never left. Last Week: 10 12. Tennessee (4-6, 1-5 SEC) Since their upset of South Carolina, the Volunteers have been outscored 131-36 in their last three games. Last Week: 12 13. Arkansas (3-7, 0-6 SEC) Bret Bielema may be rethinking that whole “the SEC isn’t that tough” stance, considering he can’t win a game in it. Last Week: 13 14. Kentucky (2-8, 0-6 SEC) Basketball has started. Call back next fall. Last Week: 14 James Moran is a 21-year-old mass communication senior from Beacon, N.Y.

LSU dominated the glass, out-rebounding New Orleans 56-38 while picking up 21 offensive boards. Mickey finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds, making him the first player to start a season with three double-doubles since Storm Warren did so in 2009. The freshman added three blocks to increase his season total to 14.

Technology closes us off from true interaction THE UNRIDDLER Christine Guttery Columnist As I walk through the Quad on any given day, I notice the vast number of students with their eyes glued to their cellphone screens. We’ve all walked down a narrow sidewalk behind an oblivious, slow texter. I’m guilty too. Once, on my way to class, I was texting and nearly walked into a stop sign. Because of our addiction to technology, we fail to be fully present in our environment and miss out on valuable opportunities to interact with those physically around us. Studies show that cellphone usage diverts our attention from our surroundings, and the results can be detrimental. According to Distracting.gov, an estimated 421,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver in 2012. If our phones distract us from focusing on the road, they also distract us from fully engaging with the people around us. While texting and other forms of technological communication are useful, they are no substitute for

Check out what readers had to say in our comment section: In response to Annette Sommers’ column, “Opinion: Objections to organ donations selfish, irrational,” readers had this to say: “I like your enthusiasm for organ donating. Its important to remember that education on this subject is very sparse. Although those of us who are donors may think that donating one’s organs is a common and well understood practice, it really is not. For many who are less informed in the realm of organ and tissue donation, the topic may bring up images and ideas that

face-to-face communication. UCLA professor Albert Mehrabian concluded that, regarding feelings and attitudes, only 7 percent of communication is through the actual content of the message, while the rest is through body language and vocal tone, pitch and emphasis. Too often we trade in the real world around us, in which we can fully communicate, for the technological world, in which we are only able to partially express our true selves. Talking on the phone while driving, Facebooking while listening to a lecture, texting while walking: We call these multitasking. Contrary to common belief, the brain cannot complete multiple tasks simultaneously. According to Karen Bradley in an article published by the National Association of Independent Schools, the brain instead “switches gears, which takes time, reduces accuracy and inhibits creative thought.” We need to stop trying to live in multiple worlds at the same time, because the fact is we can’t. Multitasking in social situations, such as texting while someone is talking, may be irritating or hurtful, because it indicates the listener does not value the speaker’s thoughts enough to give his or her full attention. We’ve all heard the quote, are far from the truth. Even those of us who are donors may not realized how rare donating organs is. For one to donate a vital organ after death (kidney, liver, heart, etc.), the person must pass in a very specific way. One cannot simply have a heart attack and expect their organs to be used. Making a long story short, a person much be brain dead but otherwise still biologically alive to donate. This occurs very rarely and is a major factor in why having a very large pool of donors in necessary. On the other hand, most people who are donors are eligible of being tissue donors (Skin, Corneas, etc). Skin can be used to help burn victims in the form of graphs and Corneas can be used to help restore sight to those who have age or disease related sight loss. It is very important to know that donating ones body to research can also save lives as well as improve sciences realm of understanding. It may sound gruesome

to you has been encouraged. We have many opportunities to positively affect those around us, even if it’s just a smile or “hello.” I’m not saying we should completely unplug from technology. It definitely has its positive aspects. Who knows where I would be without Google Maps. There’s no telling. There’s nothing wrong with using technology, but it becomes a curse when we become so attached to our phones that we cannot engage in the physical world around us. The people around us deserve our full attention. Technology today has the power to connect us with people across the world and also the power to disconnect us with those in the same room. We should limit our cell phone use in social settings, so we can give our full attention and respect to those physically around us — our family, friends, professors and even those we don’t yet know.

“Wherever you are, be fully there.” Imagine how different our lives would be if we truly applied it. We must not let technology complicate life and take us away from the present moment. Our classmates all have their own unique stories, interests and goals, but we may

never even know their names, because instead of engaging in conversations before class, we put up walls — our cell phones. What if we took down our walls, just for a little while, and decided to interact with those physically around us? Perhaps it has been a long time since the person sitting next

to some but doctors need practice. The future of medicine is dependent on the continual donation of peoples bodies to science. Finally, as you stated, specialists do amazing things with the bodies of donors after collection. If a person wants an open casket funeral but also wants to be a donor, they should not be concerned. There are people whose job is to prepare the body for viewing and I can tell you they are miracle workers. Even when a person has donated their corneas for transplantation or even whole eyes for research, it can easily be fixed so that it goes totally unnoticed. In the end, donors (for organs or science) are vital to the lives of those in need of organs/tissue and the continuing of medical science. It really is the last selfless thing a person can do.” -enucleation

Federal officials see value in bitcoin despite flaws SHARE THE WEALTH Jay Meyers Columnist A great shock went through the money world Monday when, in a first-ever congressional hearing on virtual currencies, federal officials from the Department of Justice and U.S. Treasury, among others, signaled their willingness to accept the cyber-currency bitcoin as a legitimate way to pay for things. The markets squirmed with glee as, over the course of a few hours, the price of one bitcoin skyrocketed to $750. To put this in perspective, one bitcoin traded for around $13 in January. There’s no denying bitcoin is garnering a lot of hype. While once dismissed as something that served only to cloak the activities of drug dealers with an apparent veil of secrecy, credible monetary and economic authorities have, in recent weeks, suggested that bitcoin can be not just an interesting experiment, but an actual, mainstream currency. Well, any claim that associates

legitimacy with bitcoin is baseless. But before the inflation-hating Ron Paul camp gets too worked up, let’s look at why the bitcoin craze will never live up to its lofty expectations. As noted earlier, the dollar value of the cyber-currency has soared, so buying into bitcoin has, at least so far, been a good investment, which has led many to declare it a success. However, this is a rather flawed argument: the function of a monetary system isn’t to make people holding money rich. Rather, the fundamental purpose of money is that of a medium of exchange, making buying and selling products way easier than bartering. Imagine what a trip to the grocery store would be like if we switched from the dollar to the bitcoin. Because it trades like a stock, bond or other commodity, you would literally have to check to see how much the currency was worth in terms of value every day. Such uncertainty hurts growth and would render the core function of money essentially useless. Here’s another key reason why the cyber-currency would inevitably fail: Bitcoin’s algorithm states that

JACQUELYN MARTIN / The Associated Press

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke listens while participating in a panel at the International Monetary Fund in Washington on Nov. 8.

at some point the total supply of bitcoins will be restricted at around 21 million. Why is that a problem? Because as bitcoin approaches a point where there is no longer additional supply, people would begin to hoard bitcoins in an attempt to build a reserve. The more people hoard bitcoins, the less they go out and

purchase goods and services. In other words, the economy would enter a recession. Under our current Federal Reserve banking system, we could easily avoid this problem, as the Fed can just “print” more dollars, thereby expanding the money supply and restoring order to the economy. Wait, isn’t all of this “money printing” a bad thing? Hasn’t the Fed

caused enough inflation? To be sure, the Fed doesn’t actually print money. Instead, it varies the amount of liquidity allowed to banks and various financial institutions by determining how much money they can legally lend out. On the topic of inflation, there has been little, if any of it in recent years, in spite of the Fed’s massive bond buying programs, which are designed to increase the money supply, provide more liquidity to banks and lower interest rates. The basic lesson here is that, as a result of its significant design flaws, bitcoin will never be anything more than a speculative investment. To think otherwise demonstrates a serious misunderstanding of the relationship between money and its value to society. And, in truth, we don’t need bitcoin. The dollar works just fine.

Fork over the money to help out the homeless Shut up, meg Megan Dunbar Opinion Editor Baton Rouge is for most of us a stopover point between grade school and graduation, a springboard to the rest of our lives, a place where we learn what’s possible. For others, it’s a dead end. To the more than 12,000 homeless people in Louisiana, Baton Rouge can become a depressing black hole of hunger and joblessness. This week, Kitchens on the Geaux and other local organizations honor National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week by providing breakfast for the Baton Rouge homeless and hungry and volunteering at the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. They also placed 12,500 forks on the Parade Ground with signs indicating their meaning: One fork for each homeless person living in Louisiana. And that’s only the population we know about. Homelessness is a difficult thing to measure, and since the stigma is so high, many are afraid to admit their status. So it may be that 12,500 forks aren’t enough. Beyond that, many Americans are a mere paycheck away from being able to pay rent, feed themselves and support family members. The good news is that most

homelessness is temporary. Eighty percent of reported cases last less than three weeks. That leaves 10 percent of homeless out in the cold for up to two months, while the remaining 10 percent are chronically homeless. These people typically suffer from substance abuse or mental illness, and don’t have anywhere to turn. Baton Rouge tried to assist those homeless citizens by offering free bus tickets in June to locations where they have family willing to help, and while the ideals seemed noble, what one Metropolitan Council member said about the city’s homeless was not. “At the end of the day, we did not spend millions of tax payer dollars on refurbishing downtown to make it as nice as it is just to have it flooded with homeless people,” said Metro Council member John Delgado. How many of you silently agreed with this statement? I mean, your tax dollars or your parents’ probably contributed to that downtown, so it’s your right to dictate how it’s enjoyed, right? I shouldn’t assume that, though. Maybe you read that and were appalled. But take a couple seconds anyway to think about how downtown looks on any given weekday. It’s barren. All the hardworking, bootstrap-pulling good people are inside, working away. Why shouldn’t those without homes be allowed to exist in a place built for human betterment?

ANGELA MAJOR / The Daily Reveille

12,500 forks are stuck in the ground Tuesday as a part of an installation created by Kitchens on the Geaux on the LSU Parade Ground to raise awareness for LSU National Hunger and Homelessness Week.

No matter what Delgado implies about their peskiness and lack of humanity, these people are just that, people. And they need some assistance. Sure, there are exceptions to every rule, but if the rule is 80 percent needing just a little bit to tide them over, we as a responsible society should be able to provide. The other 20 percent deserves support as well, no matter their circumstance. Consider how close you might be to becoming part of these numbers. Imagine if your grants didn’t

come through in time, or if TOPS or your parents decided to cut you off? What would you do? It’s the stuff of nightmares, and this week those forks on the Parade Ground are there to help us remember. When we’ve moved on to our supposedly bigger and better jobs, we should remember those forks, and the people they represent. Take some money each paycheck and set it aside. Donate it to food kitchens, buy a man on the street something to eat or have a conversation with the woman who walks

between the homeless shelter and the bus stop every morning to take her child to school. Do what makes you comfortable, but know that these 12,500 forks represent people just like us. Megan Dunbar is a 20-year-old English senior from Greenville, S.C.
