of the 20th century by the Royal National Theatre of
Great Britain.
"I knew it would take me too long to write another
novel and I knew, having worked for film companies, no
one would make a movie about my story, so I decided to
write a play," Kramer said. "At first, everyone rejected it
- every director, every studio."
"Kramer's play 'Normal Heart' is one of my favorite
works," said Public Health student Nicole Lomerson. "For
a lot of us who work in the HIV/AIDS field, Kramer is a
hero. I came to hear him speak because of his accomplish-
ments and because he is a phenomenal writer."
Gay Men's Health Crisis has concerned itself mostly
with nursing the sick, which, according to Kramer, is only
half the fight. He said he wanted to create a more con-
frontational group to challenge those who would turn
their backs to the problem.
"ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) hanged
an effigy of Frank Young, head of the (Food and Drug

Administration), on Wall Street and we demonstrated at
St. Patrick's Cathedral (in New York City) by taking over
mass and refusing to leave," Kramer said. "From that day
on, people knew who we were and they were afraid of us,
and that is worth a lot."
As a student at Northwestern University, Ann Arbor
resident Phil Jessel heard Kramer speak and said he was
excited to attend another of his presentations.
"Kramer is a living piece of history," Jessel said. "'Fag-
gots' and 'Normal Heart' were interesting to read and are
an important accounts of the American experience."
Kramer wrote "Faggots," a novel about homosexual
culture, in 1978.
"Kramer's contribution to the progress made in the
AIDS field and his struggle to educate the public make
him an important historical figure," said Medical School
student Charlie Ashbrook. "In the early 1980s, HIV was
very unknown. His efforts to improve gay men's health
brought me here to hear his perspective."
Kramer's campus visit was one feature of National
Coming Out Week. His presentation was conducted as an
interview by Medical School Prof. Howard Markel.

State offici 0dis can 't say how
shortfall will affect students

Besides the economy, Bird cited the
drop in market share of the "Big
Three" auto manufacturers in Michi-
gan - Ford, DaimlerChrysler, and
General Motors - as a reason for
lower than expected state tax revenue.
Sen. Liz Brater (D-Ann Arbor) said
she believes the budget crisis is a
result of past errors in fiscal policy.

She said former Gov. John Engler cut
taxes more than 30 times, including
an annual decrease in income taxes of
one-tenth of 1 percent for five years,
beginning in 1999.
Brater said for every one-tenth of
one percent reduction in income
taxes, the state loses an estimated
$150 million in revenue.
"People are saying the crisis is
because of the economy, but it's real-
ly a self-inflicted wound because we

reduced the revenues to the state
with income-tax cuts," Brater said.
"I am one of the few people that
support (pausing the income-tax
cuts). Both the leaders and the peo-
ple of Michigan have subscribed to
the idea that we are paying too much
in taxes ... but now we are seeing the
results of those philosophies. We are
seeing real pain, to real people,
including students in public universi-
ties," Brater said.

California Gov. Gray Davis lost yesterday's recall election and will be replaced by
actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

upper-level writing courses, to give
more individual attention.
"Students will have at least two
classes that are very writing focused.
So much has to do with time. Those
who are inexperienced need more
attention, and we can give them
attention though class workshops,"
Cooper said.
LSA junior Molly Gannon said
her English 124 class was a positive
experience. The professor "helped
us out with our writing, and we told
her what we needed and she adjust-
ed," she said.
The Sweetland Writing Center
offers students the chance to have
any of their papers read and edited
by faculty.
Sweetland also offers peer tutors,
a select group of upperclassmen
who can help students edit their
Caroline Eisner, associate director
of Sweetland, emphasized the assis-
tance the University offers to students.
"We are really intent on helping stu-
dents by both looking at content and
also how it's said. Our intent is to

teach people how to communicate,"
Eisner said.
LSA freshman Luke Polcyn said
the University is doing a good job
addressing the writing needs of stu-
"It's important to have a strong writ-
ing foundation. I have a great (Gradu-
ate Student Instructor) for my class -
its important to have qualified teach-
ers," Polcyn said.
The University's upper-level writ-
ing requirement can be fulfilled by
designated classes in each depart-
"My (first-year writing) class had
lots of peer editing and group stuff.
With the (upper-level writing) class
you get less help. You're totally on
your own," LSA junior Kate Laugh-
lin said.
Eisner said the upper-level require-
ment is much more specialized than in
the freshman courses.
"Those (upper-level) classes are up
to the departments. However, we've
changed English 229 to a professional
writing class that will help students in
their career. We teach them how to
write all sorts of documents necessary
for the workplace: legal briefs, evalua-
tions, and such," Eisner said.

Re-elected last year with less than 50
percent of the vote, Davis fell victim to
a groundswell of discontent in a state
that has struggled with its perilous
financial condition.
As colorless as his name, Davis was
also known as a canny politician with
sharp elbows. Once chief of staff to
Gov. Jerry Brown, he rose through the
political ranks as a state assemblyman,
state controller and lieutenant governor,
before becoming governor in 1999.
By contrast, Schwarzenegger's politi-
cal inexperience seemed a virtue to
many voters.
The actor's improbable rise to politi-
cal power played out before a rapt inter-
national audience. He announced his
candidacy in August on "The Tonight
Show With Jay Leno" after aides said it
was certain he wouldn't run.
Other major candidates seeking to
replace Davis were the Democratic lieu-
tenant governor, Cruz Bustamante, con-
servative Republican state Sen. Tom
McClintock and Green Party candidate
Peter Camejo.
The campaign included a parade of
bit players among the 135 candidates,
including Hustler publisher Larry Flynt,
former child actor Gary Coleman, a
publicity-hungry porn actress who

wanted to tax breast implants and an
artist who dressed in all blue and
described his candidacy as the ultimate
piece of performance art.
The cast of characters and outsized
ballot gave the campaign a carnival-like
atmosphere and provided late-night
comics with a stream of material.
But to many Californians, it was seri-
ous business.
"I'm horrified at the thought that
Schwarzenegger can be our governor,"
said Gretchen Purser, 25, of Berkeley,
who voted against recall. "I'm sick of
Republicans trying to take over the
Ed Troupe, 69, of Thousand Oaks,
voted yes for recall and for
Schwarzenegger. "As far as I'm con-
cerned," he said, "Gray Davis is one of
the dirtiest politicians I've ever encoun-
tered." Though Schwarzenegger held a
commanding lead over his rivals going
into the final week, his campaign was
shaken by allegations published in the
Los Angeles Times days before the elec-
tion from six women who said he
groped them or made unwanted sexual
advances. Allegations continued to sur-
face over the weekend, and by election
day 16 women had come forward.
Schwarzenegger also was confront-
ed with reports that he had praised
Hitler as a young man - accusations
he disputed.

LSA sophomore Katie Klaeren has her paper reviewed by Sweetland Writing Center
tutor and LSA senior Noah Roth yesterday evening in Angell Hall.

"The response from the public has been over-
whelmingly supportive," Dilley added.
The first Borders store employee interviewed
said the decision in December to form a union was
a last resort after negotiations broke down
between the employees and Borders management.
"Unionizing is a message to the company that they
need to treat employees well, or we'll seek protec-
tion through a union," she added.
Roman said she feels it is no coincidence that
only two of the 425 Borders stores in the country
are unionized - the stores in Ann Arbor and Min-
neapolis. "Why? I think we are a good employer,
and a great place to work," Roman said.
But the Borders store employee had a different

"This dispute isn't just about
money and respect, it is about
keeping this a community

explanation for this: "When you try to organize,
you know that your career with Borders is over.
I'm still working here - barely," she said.
But Roman said Borders has not taken any
measures to discourage unionization of its
employees, and Borders has no policies preventing
it from hiring union members.
