The verdict is history. Recriminations will continue for a generation, the babble forever. Plan B for the hard right: If you can't bring down Bill, go after Tinky Winky. Bawlamerns: Help reduce homicides: Drop the gun. Whatever ails the court system, more jury duty is not the cure. Note to GOPefuls: New Hampshire voters don't care who is running for president. Their hot issue is whether fraternities as we know them will survive at Dartmouth College. After prayerful consideration, I have decided not to run. Pub Date: 2/15/99

For years, those fishing in East Coast waterways have faced bans on felt-soled boots and urgings that they scrub their gear to combat the spread of a pervasive algae. But a recent Dartmouth College study could turn such thinking on its head. Didymo, a species of diatom that produces threadlike stalks called "rock snot" blooms, long has been believed to represent an invasive threat to bodies of water across the nation, but the algae is largely native to those areas, according to the study.

AS THE president of a liberal arts institution, I believe the robust discussion of ideas is essential to the pursuit of truth and the intellectual and moral growth of America's future leaders.There is a time in such debates when one is compelled to say, with word and deed, "This is who I am, this is what I stand for." Recent events at Dartmouth College and the ensuing uproar make this one of those times for me.For the past 10 years the Dartmouth Review -- an off-campus newspaper unassociated with Dartmouth College -- has attracted national attention by its brazen attacks on blacks, women, homosexuals, Native Americans and Jews.

THE LATE Dr. Seuss is to his alma mater, Dartmouth College, what Lewis Carroll is to Oxford University, its officially cherished children's author and possibly the best writer the institution ever produced.Before Dr. Seuss' death, Dartmouth freshmen taking pre-orientation wilderness trips converged on a university lodge in the White Mountains of New Hampshire to be greeted by a hearty breakfast of green eggs and ham.At a time of community breakdown at many campuses -- PC vs. anti-PC, Western vs. non-Western -- Dr. Seuss is the unifying cultural link.
