Officials: Debate worth small troubles

Neil Giuliano said hosting the debate was worth whatever "small inconveniences" ASU students, staff and faculty had to deal with last week.

Giuliano, the former Tempe mayor and current ASU director of community relations and development, said the more than 3,000 media that showed up to cover the debate brought "overwhelmingly positive" coverage of ASU and Tempe.

Prop 400 would connect campuses

An initiative on the Nov. 2 ballot that would provide additional bus services and extend an already approved light rail system could play a key role in ASU's plans for a downtown Phoenix campus.

Proposition 400 is asking Maricopa County voters to approve an extension of the county's half-cent transportation sales tax for an additional 20 years. The tax, which was approved by Maricopa County voters in 1985, expires on Dec. 31, 2005.

LOS ANGELES -- Don't think USC junior quarterback Matt Leinart is a Heisman Trophy candidate?

Think again.

Leinart proved his Heisman worth Saturday, throwing four first-half touchdowns and running for another score in a near-flawless effort that enabled No. 1 USC to remain unbeaten with a convincing 45-7 win over No. 15 ASU at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Secondary comes up lame against Trojans

LOS ANGELES -- The Sun Devil secondary entered Saturday's clash against the No. 1 USC Trojans with a lot of confidence. But, after a 45-7 beating, it left Southern California with a lot of questions.

The USC offense torched the Sun Devil cornerbacks and safeties for 301 passing yards and five touchdowns. Quarterback Matt Leinart had four of the touchdown passes and tailback Reggie Bush completed the fifth.

The controversy surrounding the ASU Art Museum's current exhibit, "Democracy in America: Political Satire, Then and Now," comes down to the screaming faces of eight children.

It's their faces that make up the inflammatory piece "Angry Americans," by ASU alumnus Ryan McNamara. It's their faces that were cut out of the show by the head curator of the exhibition and director of the museum, Marilyn Zeitlin. It's their faces that have brought a cry of censorship from groups that say Zeitlin purposely tossed out McNamara's piece to "balance" the tone of the show.
