Editorial: BOOS & BRAVOS
BRAVO to Hollywood. Stars, from Tom Hanks to Will Smith, appeared in a televised telethon last Friday that raised more than $150 million for victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. It was definitely no comparison to the infamous “We Are the World” phenomenon of the ‘80s, but we’re always amazed when something can bring Tom Petty and Celine Dion into the same room. And we applaud fund-raising efforts — even from Hollywood. Another benefit concert of the stars kicks off today in New York.

Opinion: Letters to the Editor
This is ridiculous. A college campus is the last place a foreign student, or any student for that matter, should be afraid for his or her life. People of all different cultures come to college with one common goal: to better themselves by receiving an education. Educated people do not judge others by what they look like, what they wear, or how “American” they are.

'Warrior Sisters' gets mixed review
The more I think about the musical 'Warrior Sisters,' the more I can't decide if I enjoyed the show or not. On one hand it is a modern American opera mixing traditional Asian and African music with contemporary jazz. On the other, the story is difficult to follow, even with the program.
