This article reminds me of a quote from the movie, HARRIET THE SPY, where the character played by Rosie O'Donnell tells Harriet, "Truth is beauty and beauty is truth." Miss Sheehan laid it all out in this commentary and is having to face the truth of the mathematical fact that she cannot afford to live in a place where she is truly happy. How rare it is for young people to face the painful reality of "I cannot have this" and to face the fact that "I must live within my means." Great job on an interesting, funny, and truthful article. I felt as if I could have written this myslef "once upon a time."

There are a couple of errors which warrant correction, but first...Thanks to the Plainsman staff for getting the word out about aviation at Auburn! I think it's important to clarify that the aviation programs were never on any type of "probation". Also, the unfortunate passing was of a faculty member, not the Business Dean; and the number of aircraft in our fleet was not an issue with AABI accreditation. Thanks, War Eagle and Fly Auburn!

I'm not sure why the fan was sitting on the base line anyway. There were plenty of great seats available. He would not have been kicked-out if he was in the stands.

Providing proper care to feet is very important and feet are the most important part of our body as they carry whole weight of our body. Last year I got fungus on my toenail and after using a lot of product nothing worked then my cousin sister told me to use defense soap product. This product worked very well for me and my infection went away in few days. Now for my face and feet I normally use
defense soap antibacterial soap
for washing as their results are very effective for infection.

The question of what to do about drugs is not a new one. Over the last 100 years there have been numerous major government commissions around the world that have studied the drug laws and made recommendations for changes. You can find the full text of all of them at http://druglibrary.org/schaffer under Major Studies of Drugs and Drug Policy. They all reached remarkably similar conclusions, no matter who did them, or where, or when, or why. They all agreed that the current laws were based on ignorance and nonsense, and that the current policy does more harm than good, no matter what you assume about the dangers of drugs. You don't have to take my word for that. Read them yourself. If you are new to the collection, start with Licit and Illicit Drugs at http://druglibrary.org/schaffer/Library/studies/cu/cumenu.htm That is the best overall review of the drug problem ever written. If you only read one book on the subject, make it that one. It will give you a good summary of what you would learn if you read all the other major reports. In 1973, President Nixon's US National Commission on Marihuana and Drug Abuse completed the largest study of the drug laws ever done. At the end of their study, they said the real drug problem was not marijuana, or heroin, or cocaine. The real drug problem, they said, was the ignorance of our public officials who keep spouting off with solutions but have never read the most basic research on the subject. In a perfect illustration of their point, Nixon refused to read his own commission's report. The full text can be found at http://druglibrary.org/schaffer/Library/studies/nc/ncmenu.htm

Marijuana was outlawed for two major reasons. The first was because "All Mexicans are crazy and marijuana is what makes them crazy. The second was the fear that heroin addiction would lead to the use of marijuana - exactly the opposite of the modern "gateway" nonsense. Only one MD testified at the hearings for the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. The representative of the American Medical Association said there was no evidence that marijuana was a dangerous drug and no reason for the law. He pointed out that it was used in hundreds of common medicines at the time, with no significant problems. In response, the committee told him that, if he wasn't going to cooperate, he should shut up and leave. The only other "expert" to testify was James C. Munch, a psychologist. His sole claim to fame was that he had injected marijuana directly into the brains of 300 dogs and two of them died. When they asked him what he concluded from this, he said he didn't know what to conclude because he wasn't a dog psychologist. Mr. Munch also testified in court, under oath, that marijuana could make your fangs grow six inches long and drip with blood. He also said that, when he tried it, it turned him into a bat. He then described how he flew around the room for two hours. Mr. Munch was the only "expert" in the US who thought marijuana should be illegal, so they appointed him US Official Expert on marijuana, where he served and guided policy for 25 years. If you read the transcripts of the hearings, one question is asked more than any other: "What is this stuff?" It is quite apparent that Congress didn't even know what they were voting on. The law was shoved through by a small group of lunatics with no real awareness by anyone else of what was happening. See http://druglibrary.org/schaffer/History/whiteb1.htm for an entertaining short history of the marijuana laws. See http://druglibrary.org/schaffer/hemp/taxact/taxact.htm for the complete transcripts of the hearings for the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937.

Why does this "news" report exist? It is a non-story, designed to raise controversy where there is none anymore. The question has been settled. In the locked cars, yes. In the common areas and buildings, no. This has been clear from the beginning, except in articles like this that pose as "clarification" of facts you have deliberately obfuscated. Feh.

It's an embarrassment to Auburn University that a spelling error on the word "counselors" appears in the Plainsman. USE SPELL CHECK if nothing else. How did this get by the editor??
