The party opposes policies it feels are redistribu-
tive or discriminatory, such as affirmative action
admissions polices at colleges and progressive
To Rick Gualdoni, the party's nominee for the
University Board of Regents and a 1984 University
graduate, being a Constitution Party regent would
mean opposing affirmative action policies and
making sure University expansion does not require
large tuition hikes. "I think the University should
focus more on what schools are for and that's suc-
ceeding in the business world - and that means
less research and development," said Gualdoni, a
mobile body shop owner from Flint Township.
Another issue important to Constitution Party
members is religion.
To Joseph Pilchak, the gubernatorial nominee
and husband of Clara Pilchak, of St. Clair County's
Sapac, the rights American citizens have are spelled
out in the Constitution as deriving from God.
Therefore, not believing in God means not
believing in those rights. "I think if children want to
bring bibles (to school) I see nothing wrong with
it," Pilchak said. "I see nothing wrong with posting
the Ten Commandments."
"What the First Amendment says is we have a
freedom of religion, not freedom from religion,"
he said. As for believers in religions that do not
accept the Ten Commandments and who oppose
its posting in schools, Pilchak said, "these groups
are very minor and I don't see why the majority
should suffer because of a minority."
The party has been through some ups and
downs, beginning in 1992 when founders started it
in the hopes of being the banner under which then-
Republican activist Patrick Buchanan would seek
the presidency. But he chose other means.
In 1999, the party scored a short-lived coup
when U.S. Sen. Robert Smith of New Hampshire
left the Republican Party to seek the Constitution
Party's nomination for president, but he dropped
out of the running and rejoined the GOP a few
weeks later. For the 2000 presidential elections, the
party, with founder Howard Phillips as its presi-
dential nominee, achieved full ballot designation in
41 states and could field write-in candidates in six
In an interesting turn of events this year, the
party decided to team up with the Reform Party
- the party that ended up nominating Buchanan
for the presidency in 2000.
They are not fielding competing candidates
for offices. For example, the husband-and-wife
team of Joseph and Clara Pilchak for governor
and lieutenant governor will not see its votes
split by a competing Reform Party nominee for

Kucinich also spoke about the
choices that "we" as a society make
and the effects that these choices
"We have to believe in our ability
to affect each other," he said, "As
we choose, so chooses the world."
On the issue of Iraq, Kucinich
told audience members that "all of
the oil in Iraq is not worth a drop of
blood of anybody, citizens of Iraq
"We need to challenge this notion
that somehow the lives of our
young are expendable," he added.
"It's time for a different debate in
America. It's time to stop being
boxed in," Kucinich said.
He stressed the need for students
and community members present to
think outside of the box in order to
"My purpose is to look at the
institutions that we have and chal-
lenge them to make them work. I'll
do it from the inside, you do it from
the outside. That is how we will
get them to work," he said, illustrat-
ing the importance of various
aspects of society working together
in order to implement change.
After speaking on the issues sur-
rounding war and peace in Iraq,
Kucinich answered many questions
ranging from his opinion on stem-
cell research to the problem of
poverty in South Africa.
His overall message throughout
his responses was that: "Yes we
should do and can do more for all
of the nations of the world, particu-
larly those who are dispossessed.
We need to do more for them.
But it goes back to our .ability to
raise consciousness that we can
make a change."
Kucinich closed with an inspira-
tional quotation from former U.S.
Attorney General Robert Kennedy
saying, "Each time a person stands
up for an ideal, or acts to improve
the lot of others, or strikes out
against injustice, he sends forth a
tiny ripple of hope, and crossing
each other from a million different
centers of energy and daring, these
ripples build a current that can
sweep own the mightiest walls of
oppression and resistance."

International students are expected to pay a SEVIS
fee of $54 to the Immigration and Naturalization Ser-
For international students, "the amount may be too
much," said a foreign undergraduate student who
wished to remain anonymous.
Some international students said they are not aware
of the details of the program, but had mixed reactions
to whether or not they felt the system is necessary.
"If someone is determined to find a loophole and
break into the system, they will at any cost. All this
program is going to do is discourage the intelligent kids
from all over the world to come here," LSA sophomore
Kanika Suri, an international student, said. "I think it is
a complete invasion of privacy."
But Altamirano said he hopes that this new act is not
seen as a way to pry into the lives of international stu-
dents or as a form of discrimination.
"My hope is that SEVIS will be implemented effec-
tively and that all the technical specifications and
requirements are looked at very carefully and that there
will be a very smooth functional and technical relation-
ship between the University and the Immigration and
Naturalization SEVIS system," Altamirano said.

"The construction of Huron Street is
pretty significant," said Republican Jeff
DeBoer, Carlberg's opponent in Ward 3.
"If there's a greater problem, we need to
hear public opinion."
Republican Marcia Higgins, a current
member of the City Council and Hieft-
je's opponent in the mayoral election,
was skeptical that the city could entirely
solve the problem of homelessness.
"Can we completely alleviate home-
lessness? I don't think so," she said.
"Ironic as it may seem, there are people
who prefer that lifestyle."
She added that the greater responsi-
bility for helping the homeless lies in the
state government, which regulates the
occupancy of mental hospitals. Higgins
said the state releases many of its
patients prematurely to save money.
Republican Kenneth Timmer, who is
running in Ward 4, said the city should
look more toward faith-based organiza-
tions for help. "A good share of respon-
sibility rests with areas other than
government such as churches and other
volunteer groups," he said.
Former Democratic Councilwoman
Joan Lowenstein, who is running for
re-election in Ward 2, took a more strict
approach to the problem. She indicated
her support for the new shelter, but also
stressed her desire for greater enforce-
ment of panhandling laws, proposing to
initiate a law similar to one in Berke-
ley, Calif. that prohibits standing or sit-
ting in the street.
"The homeless are attracted to
downtown because students give
them money," she said. "We need to
make Ann Arbor less attractive to

"This is kind of an unusual case,"
Petee said. "This is some kind of thrill-
kill situation, where the sniper is getting
some kind of enjoyment out of killing
the victims and out of the whole risk-
Although Petee said most serial
killers are middle-aged white males
whose killing is tied to sexual offenses
or an "Angel of Death" philosophy in
which hospitalized or elderly people
are targeted, he said he expects the
Washington sniper is not going to fit
the normal profile. Instead, he said the
person police are most likely looking
for is a young white male in his early
"This is an intelligent killer. We're not
talking about somebody with a low IQ.
This is somebody who has engaged in
some planning regarding these offenses.
This is somebody who enjoys the atten-
tion and somebody who enjoys taunting
police," he said, adding that the sniper
does not necessarily have experience as
"This is somebody who the first cou-
ple of killings could have been their first
couple of killings, but this is somebody
who has been building toward killing for
at least a little while. .,. This is some-
body that maybe gets into a lot of violent
video games and that would be a part of
the building up process," he said. "They
haven't been remarkable shots, as far as
what this person has pulled off so far."
Despite the sniper's apparent success
thus far, Petee said he is confident-the
person responsible for the shootings will
be apprehended as long as he continues
to kill. "He hasn't shown signs of stop-
ping, and we don't really have any
precedent for a killer that ends up stop-
ping," Petee said. "Eventually, there is
going to be some witnesses who can
actually identify him, or the police will
outright catch the person in the act."
