Monkeys In Chalk

After attending Wednesday's Distinguished Speaker Series event and listening to Jane Goodall talk about her life and her career, I walked back to the Student Union and passed a series of anti-war chalk drawings on the ground.The chalkings reminded me of something Dr. Goodall discussed.During her speech, she mentioned a common complaint about environmentalism - that of rabid environmentalists so concerned with saving the environment or saving endangered species that they overlook the human suffering going on right before their eyes.It's a difficult situation.

SA Review

At the mid-semester point of fall 2001, striking differences between this the current Student Association executive board and last year's are manifest.This year's SA is regaining the confidence of the UB community by proving to be highly effective and in tune with the needs of the student body, despite having raised some eyebrows at its handling of the mysterious resignation of an elected New York State Student Assembly Delegate and his under-publicized replacement.The previous SA was highly ineffectual, partially due to the president's lack of a coherent vision and failure to command respect from students, faculty or administrators.
