Despite the adulation around

the office, staff members also
criticize Levin from time to time.
An anonymous staffer (who

watching Levin vote against a bill
But for the most part, Senator
Carl Levin really is the
"compassionate and thoughtful
lawmaker" that his promotional

materials boast. He actually does
show a "stulbborn independence

The athletic department has instituted a new seati:
plan designed to increase noise at basketball games.-T
way it is now, the stadium has an eerily quiet, almost
funereal quality. Sure, the place gets noisy on occasior

those moments, we tend to keep quiet and allow the
