Bicyclists Jailed in Protest of Vetoed Bill
Waving flags and denouncing automobile culture, Berkeley bicyclists cruised over the Bay Bridge yesterday, only to be carted off to jail when they got to San Francisco.

Finger Lickin' Good
Ladies, don't worry, I did not forget about you! Last week, I concentrated on pleasing those men out there. This week, I am here to help you out with a lesson on cunnilingus, or "eating a girl out," "going down on a girl," whatever you want to call it. Personally, I think cunnilingus is definitely something men and women can use a little nitty gritty, womanly advice about.

March to Playoffs Continues
The Cal field hockey team has found it in overtime, at shootouts, and Saturday in Stockton the Bears found it in the grass.

Task Force To Address Questionable Rape Data
The UC system has formed an internal task force to investigate allegations that on-campus rape and sexual assault statistics have been inaccurately reported, officials said yesterday.

Conductor Offers New View of American Visionary
Students and Berkeley residents packed Hertz Hall yesterday to hear San Francisco Symphony conductor Michael Tilson Thomas speak about composer Aaron Copland.

Seva: A Healthy Dose of Technology and Culture
The Seva Foundation, based in Berkeley but extended throughout the world, was born from the idea that, if the modern technology and medicine of the Western world joined with the ancient knowledge and cultures of the East, curable illnesses in Eastern countries could finally be wiped out.

Author Sees Underpopulation Threat
Tackling the issue of population growth, Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute and former UC Berkeley faculty member, addressed students in the Valley Life Sciences Building last night.

Corrections
Yesterday's article "Grant Aids Service Learning Program" should have stated that the Corporation for National Service awarded a $405,000 grant to the UC Berkeley Service-Learning Research and Development Center. The article also should have identified Megan Voorhees as the director of Cal Corps.

If Hamlet decided to turn on the tube over the weekend to watch the Pac-10 games, he might have realized that there's something rotten with the state of the conference.

Protesters Stifle Free Speech
The protesters at last Wednesday's Mumia Abu-Jamal forum obviously were not big fans of Patrick Henry ("Shouting for Mumia," Sept. 28). The forum was held to give a different perspective of the now famous case. Dan Flynn from Accuracy in Academia came to argue that Jamal did kill police officer Daniel Faulkner in cold blood, but Flynn was never given the chance to present all the evidence.

Students Should Research Case
Last week the Berkeley College Republicans and The Berkeley Conservative Foundation held a forum to prove that Mumia Abu Jamal is a cop killer and should be executed ("Shouting for Mumia," Sept. 28). This forum was just one small part of an ongoing campaign sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Police, a national fraternal order of police and their associates, to execute Jamal and uphold the current economic and social system that is in place in the U.S.

Magazine Strives For Amusement, Not Racism
The Heuristic Squelch has been assailed by charges of racism from various factions of the campus community, all of whom trivialize the very real and very serious concept of racism by blindly applying it without examining the facts ("ASUC Condemns Published Racism," Sept. 29).

Publication Should Respect Differences
If The Heuristic Squelch feels they have the right to say horrendous comments such as "You're just an unathletic Filipino working for minimum wage - what are you gonna do about it?" the publication should first understand what it is saying ("ASUC Condemns Published Racist" Sept. 29).

Letters to the Editor: ‘Real Capitalism' Is Foundation Of Social Inequality
In his letter about Reclaim The Streets, Daniel Burton claims the problems of capitalism are due to government action, and asserts the solution is "real capitalism" ("Protesters Stand For Wrong Principles," Sept. 28). Maybe we should look at "real capitalism," capitalism as it was born in rural England in the late Middle Ages.
