When your teammate grabs 23 rebounds and is named the Pac-10 Player of the Week, chances are you'll get overlooked.

Course Evaluations: The Bottom Line
In Wednesday's edition of The Daily Californian, there was an article concerning Cal-FACTS that raised questions about politics, rather than informing readers about how the program operates ("Evaluation Program Raises Questions"). Readers deserve more.

Behind The Black
I'm writing to address Ross Clippinger's latest diatribe concerning police entitled "Behind the Badge" (Jan.27). I'm not writing to engage in the sort of pseudo-intellectual masturbation and meaningless rhetorical Ping-Pong that has come to characterize Daily Californian opinion pieces. Obviously if Good Ol' Boy Ross wants to debate something meaningful with me, I hardly think his ability to reason would stand five minutes against what I would have to tell him about reality. What I am doing is responding to what I consider a direct attack on me personally as one of the "Barrows Six." Moreover, the column is an assault on those of us on this campus that refuse to remain ignorant to the omnipresent problems of contemporary society (referring to his comment: "That's right I'm talking to you BAMN, twLF, Barrows Six").

Letters to the Editor: Clippinger Has Unique Clairvoyance
