    Macasaquit Gets Last Word In Gay Marriage Feud

    Friends, it seems that each new issue of The Cowl is the Gay Issue. Lately, ever since I “Out[ed] the Gay Agenda,” the Commentary section has been bombarded with the issue of gay rights. We should look at this flood of responses as a sign of the times. Gay rights is today’s issue, and in light of its continuing debate, it is only appropriate that we ourselves address it. Reading Mark Scirocco’s two articles on the rights of homosexuals, one in response to my satirical article, the other in response to others’ responses to his response to my satirical article, it has become apparent that this issue is far from being resolved.

    Faith Matters

    My heart goes out to you. It really does. I see how much stress all of you students are under. I walk across campus and can see it on your faces.

    A Rare But Fair Thank You to Ray

    It’s almost cool to sit around and make fun of how bad the food is at Ray. You walk in everyday and survey the land. “Okay, we have some tofu tacos in Theme Cuisine—no thanks. Classics has chicken nuggets and mac’n’cheese—we’ll see. The Grill has Texas-style grilled cheese—that’s an option. But alas, the Deli has the caprese special on focaccia. Today is a good day.”

    Phenomenon: Enter The Ripper

    Sylvan was meant to spend the rest of the dreary day looming like a sophisticated parasite. Tailored in his worn clothing, he stood across the street from where officials operated their protocols into the afternoon. The shop behind him occasionally made itself known through customers sidling by his pacing form. It presented the smell of freshly baked bread and even greeted him with the portly figure of its proprietor, very put off that Sylvan had taken up pacing in front of his business.

    Last spring, there was an attempted abduction of a Providence College student off of Admiral Street. When a man tried to pull her into a van by her wrist, the student pounded her fist on his hand. This numbed his hand, causing him to let go and allowing her to escape. The girl had learned this tactic in a Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) class a mere two weeks earlier.
