Ben Bloomgren is tired of people trying to be politically correct about his disability. "I'm not 'visually impaired;' I'm blind," says Bloomgren while seated on his bed in his dorm room. "Just call a spade, a spade." Bloomgren, 22, is one of 42 students on ASU's main campus who are legally blind.

Disappointment. Frustration. Losses.

The ASU men's basketball team hopes to avenge those themes from last season, as the Sun Devils begin their 2004-2005 campaign Sunday at the Las Vegas Invitational in Tempe.

Coming off their first last-place finish in the Pac-10 conference under head coach Rob Evans last season, the Sun Devils are looking to gain respect and make their way back toward the top of the conference standings.

Only Hill's delicacy of choice wasn't honey, it was protein shakes. He would down one as soon as he got up, a few more throughout the day, and most importantly, another right before he went to bed. Met-Rx was his drink brand, but ASU's sophomore defensive tackle would still drink "anything I could get my hands on." And of course, there was room for a number of feasts throughout the day.

With the election two weeks in the past, political pundits have hung up their hats and band-wagoners have hopped along to find their next cause. All the while, social struggles working for justice continue. During the Oct. 13 debate at ASU, students picked up signs at their respective tables and chanted their respective chants, and that was the extent of popular political dialogue.
