Kerry targets Bush
as other candidates
fight to stay in race
The University of California at Los Angeles' Raas dance group performs at the third annual Dandia Dhamaka at Michigan
Theater Saturday. The group finished second overall In the intercollegiate competition.
The Associated Press
John Kerry accused President Bush
of repeating Vietnam-era mistakes in
Iraq and pledged yesterday to combat
Republican attacks while rivals Howard
Dean and John Edwards faced pressure
to cede the nomination to the Democ-
Looking ahead to a matchup with
President Bush, Kerry said, "I'm pre-
pared to stand up to any attack they
come at me with. I'm ready for what
they throw at me." Edwards replied,
"No so fast, John Kerry."
Resisting Kerry's suggestion that the
nomination fight was ending, Edwards
said, "We're going to have an election
here in Wisconsin this Tuesday and we
got a whole group of primaries coming
up, and I, for one, intend to fight with
everything I've got for every one of
Dean tried to sound just as confi-
dent, calling Kerry "a fine person. And
if he wins the nomination, I'm going to
support him. But I intend to win the
Kerry leads Dean, Edwards and two
other Democrats in Wisconsin, where
Democrats hold a critical primary
tomorrow. The Massachusetts senator,
victor in 14 of 16 contests, hopes to
force his major foes from the race with
another overwhelming victory.
Dean's own advisers are urging him
to abandon the fight if he loses tomor-
row and predictel that he soon would.
"We are not bowing out," Dean told
The Associated Press before the debate.
But campaign chairman Steve Grossman
said that with a loss tomorrow, Dean
would marshal his political network on
behalf of the party and Kerry.
"When Howard Dean says he's not
going to quit, what he means is the bat-
tle to restore democracy and citizen
participation is long-term and he's not
going to quit on that battle," Grossman
told the AP.
The 90-minute debate, perhaps the
last of the primary season, ended with-
out Kerry stumbling or taking heavy
flak from Dean and Edwards. They
may not get another shot.
Uncharacteristically, Dean pulled his
punches in the debate - passing up an
opportunity to repeat his criticism oI
Kerry for accepting special interest
money. Instead, the fallen front-runner
seemed to defend Kerry against criti-
cism from the White House.
"I think George Bush has some nerve
attacking anybody on special interests'
Dean said, though he added that both
parties kowtow to special interests.
Even on the war in Iraq, the issue that
divides Dean most deeply from Kerry,
the former Vermont governor was more
polite than pugilistic. "Any of us who
support sending troops, have a responsi-
bility for what happens to those troops'!
he said, noting that Edwards and Kerry
backed Bush's war resolution.
"My regret is not the vote," Kerry
said. "My regret is this president choos-
ing the wrong way, rushing to war."
A week after raising questions about
Bush's Vietnam-era service in the
National Guard, the four-term senator
and decorated Vietnam veteran refused
to comment on the controversy. But
Kerry said, "I would say that this presi-
dent, regrettably, has perhaps not learned
some of the lessons of that period of
time, when we had a very difficult war:'

versity in Milwaukee, was sponsored by
Journal Communications, WTMJ-TV
and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

interesting things in the present."
Croswell's images, which derived from a variety of
sources, showed a scarred Martian surface pockmarked by
meteor impacts throughout its 4.6 billion year lifetime. The
more craters present, the older the region, Croswell said.
The planet's red color derives from the planet's high content
of iron, which combines with oxygen to form rust.
One of the most important questions about Mars,
Croswell said, is whether life has ever arisen there. Because
life needs liquid water to survive, NASA's rovers are cur-
rently searching for evidence that liquid water once existed.
"What we're really trying to do with these spacecraft is
either confirm or refute our hypothesis that there was once
water on Mars," Croswell said.
He showed features on the Martian landscape that suggest
Mars may once have had liquid, flowing water. These
include apparent riverbeds, flood channels and gullies
resembling those created by water on Earth.
Water may have flowed on Mars as little as a million
years ago, he said, a brief span for a planet whose age is
measured in billions of years.
In a similarly recent timeframe, Mars' massive volcanoes
- which include Olympus Mons, the solar system's largest
volcano at more than twice the height of Mt. Everest - may
have erupted less than 20 million years ago.
Croswell is not the first outside speaker at Saturday Morn-
ing Physics, but the lectures are usually given by University
faculty and staff, McKay said. The series organizers felt a talk
on Mars would be timely. "There's a lot of interest in Mars
right now, what with new rovers landing," McKay said.
The audience included members of a range of ages, from
children to the elderly. Gerhard Schubert, a teacher at Lake-
land High School in White Lake, said he regularly brings
groups of his students to Saturday Morning Physics.
"This is the second year I've been encouraging students to
do this. I don't mind offering the extra credit because I view
it as an opportunity," he said.
University alum Lisa Radwick said, "For someone who
has a passing interest in this topic, it was interesting, it was
informative and gave you more than the popular press."
Her husband Mike Radwick, a member of the University
Lowbrow Astronomers, admitted a keener personal interest
in Mars. "We're pursuing our intellectual hobby," he said of
the small knot of Lowbrows who stood discussing the lec-
ture after its conclusion.
Croswell thinks the public is naturally attracted to Mars.
"I think it's the life connection, as far as why the public is
interested," he said.
But Lakeland High School student Mark Morsehead had
a different opinion. Asked what he liked most about Mars,
he said, "It's gotta be the volcanoes."
