Editorial: Albuquerque cops take doughnut run to ‘new heights’
With all the evil that exists in the world — war, the Taliban, ASU Parking and Transit Services — we here at the State Press decided that today’s editorial should not only be of the “humorous” variety, but also something that reaffirms a common conviction held by countless Americans: Cops love doughnuts.

Opinion: Nature’s true wake-up call: snoring
A man — we’ll call him “Harvey” — went to see a doctor, complaining of tiredness, bruises all over his body, shooting pains and quotation marks around his name. The doctor immediately recognized these symptoms: “Harvey” had a snoring problem. At night, he was being jabbed repeatedly by his wife, trying to make him shut up. Also, somebody had apparently been shooting him.

Opinion: ASU should cultivate campus crops potential
I am a college student and, because of that, I am sometimes without food. Sometimes, between classes, I roam around bemoaning the CD I just bought, when I could have used that $15 for sandwiches and consolation. Sometimes, there are clubs to mooch off of, offering free candy for listening to dogma and prattle.

Opinion:3 African nations embark on building world’s 1st ‘transfrontier’ wildlife park
Just the other day, I woke up with the thought of giving Mexico and Canada a call to see if they maybe wanted to form some sort of wildlife park that would span all three of our countries. And, wouldn’t you know it, just when a brilliant idea pops into my head and I decide to act on it, I find out that someone has beaten me to it!

ASU scores 9 touchdowns in rout
With rain falling throughout the first half, weather better suited for the Lousiana-Lafayette players, the Sun Devils smashed the Ragin’ Cajuns 63-27 in front of an announced crowd of 38,118 at Sun Devil Stadium Saturday night.

ASU gets no taste of Pac-10 reality in cooking of Cajuns
Fortunately for the Sun Devils, that didn’t happen Saturday night. After going three-and-out on its first series, the ASU offense scored on nine of its next 13 drives, seemingly leaving Louisiana-Lafayette with only its own futility to rage about.

Sun Devils fall hard in showdown with UA
The Sun Devils volleyball team won the first game in their match against UA Friday, but lost the next three games to fall 3-1 (29-31, 30-16, 30-25, 30-22) in front of 2,478 fans at the McKale Center.

After an impressive sixth-place finish at the rain-shortened NCAA Fall Preview two weeks ago, the ASU women’s golf team is trying to get back in the swing of things in the second tournament of the fall season.

The ASU men's and women's cross country "B" teams finished sixth and fourth, respectively, at the Arizona State Cross Country Invitational at Freestone Park in Gilbert Friday.

Devils rage on Cajuns, 63-27
The Sun Devils blew out another non-conference opponent Saturday night, as they trampled the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns 63-27.

Many students say retaliation was justified
Less than a month after ASU students woke up to images of planes crashing into the World Trade Center, night-vision images of American attacks in Afghanistan greeted them early Sunday morning.

Students still feel unsafe despite more police security measures
International students say they still feel unsafe on and off campus despite the increased security measures implemented by law enforcement since Sept. 11.

State Press asks: Was America justified in attacking Taliban targets in Afghanistan?
“Absolutely. They gave them fair warning. The U.S. was attacked wrongly and a lot of people were killed. We gave them plenty of time to do what we wanted them to do.”

Recall surpassed expected cost
In a memo to Mayor Neil Giuliano and the City Council, city clerk Kathy Matz blamed the cost on the unprecedented amount of early mail ballots that were cast and the increase of new voters.

The Today Section is a daily calendar of events printed as a service to the ASU community. Requests are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and are printed as space permits. We do not take requests over the phone, via e-mail or fax. Forms may be picked up in the basement of the Matthews Center, where they should be filled out completely and legibly.

Group raises funds, spirits at vigil
It was a time to dance. It was a time to celebrate. But to those who attended the Asian/Asian Pacific American Student Coalition candlelight vigil Friday evening, it was a time to heal, pay tribute and raise money for the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Police Beat
ASU police released no incidents Friday.

Tempe police released these incidents Friday:

• A 23-year-old man was arrested for false reporting after he gave false information to police to hide an outstanding warrant.

Tunnel of Oppression shows hate firsthand
For those who take a journey through this year's Tunnel of Oppression, one word can describe their experience: intense.

Tunnel hopes to break prejudices
The Tunnel of Oppression, a tradition on ASU's campus, will once again try to break down prejudice and educate people about oppression that occurs every day.

ASU 'Ken and Barbie' reputation well-deserved
Strolling down Palm Walk is like walking down a fashion runway in Milan. Beautiful women sport Prada book bags, sparkling white teeth, and Louis Vuitton handbags. Men cruise in sports cars wearing Gucci sunglasses, strong builds, and Diesel jeans.

Black Eyed Peas relish hip-hop root
aboo: The first time the three of us performed together in public was at this place called Grand Slam. We basically performed in front of gangsters; it was a Ruthless gangster convention or something. (Will and Ap were signed on Ruthless, Eazy E’s label, until the ex-N.W.A. rapper died of AIDS on their record release date.)

Black Eyed Peas in full effect for ‘Bridging the Gap’
Continuing their tour in support of Bridging the Gap, the Black Eyed Peas have ridden their success across the globe with their feel-good party hits and live performances that showcase their rapping, dancing and tight tour band.

‘Insomniac’, ‘Chris Wylde Show’ bring laughs to late night
The network recently launched two shows, The Chris Wylde Show starring Chris Wylde, and Insomniac with Dave Attell, and while both are worth watching, neither is worth raving over.

‘Let’s Bowl’ players duke it out at the alley
Not only did she use your credit card to buy herself an array of low-wasted jeans and pink thong underwear, but she also purchased some plastic surgery to make herself look just like you. She even fooled your boyfriend. She left you broke, and lonely too. What to do?

Get VIP treatment with limo services
Cash, money, green, ‘bling-bling’: call it what you will. They all mean the difference between the average Joe and a true celebrity. Well, that and fame, notoriety, nice cars, incredible houses and guys and girls fawning all over the place — just fill in the blank.

The road to hollywood
So, you’ve realized you’re not going to get your big break by posting hundreds of pictures of yourself on, and you’ve come to terms with the fact that the role you had as a corn-cob in your third-grade class play doesn’t make you an actor. But you want fame, fortune and lots of cats… OK, maybe not lots of cats.

Mainstream theater blossoms, offbeat actors struggle
The Phoenix theater community is abuzz with the excitement of new venues, growing ticket sales and full houses. But while the mainstream celebrates, supporters of experimental theater wonder if the community is moving in the right direction.

Bargains abound at local 99-cent store
That's all well and good for the fat cats rolling around in their Kias, or Mr. Money Bags with his fancy indoor plumbing, but some of us just can't afford a dollar for a pound of Beefy Mac. Luckily, some nice corporate man has heard our prayers and answered them with two simple words: 99 cents.

New film, college make for ‘Joy Ride’ for Sobieski
She’s certainly living in a dorm and writing term papers like everyone else. The difference is her project these days is promoting an upcoming blockbuster movie, Joy Ride.

‘Half Baked’ actor hits Tempe Improv
One of Hollywood’s busiest comedians, Williams has made a career of doing memorable supporting roles in films like Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, and Freddy Got Fingered.

opinion café
Now that we’re in college, most of us don’t have our moms around to tell us how great we are and make us dinner every night (although my cute little mom, up in Seattle, always sends me cards and care packages. What a good, good mom).
