"Strangers with Candy" and HBO's "Sex and the City," will hold
a conversation with humorist Andy Borowitz on Saturday.
The magazine is touring college campuses to reach out to
its subscribers and college students. Ann Arbor is a major sub-
scribing hub for the magazine, said Rhonda Sherman, The New
Yorker's director of special events.
"We thought it would be really great if we could find a way
to bring a taste of New York to those outside of New York," said
Sherman, who conceived of the idea of the tour. Every year, the
magazine holds a festival in New York celebrating the arts, but
many subscribers outside the area cannot make it.
But the main objective is to reach out students. "If we picked
up a few readers along the way, that would only be a good thing,"
Sherman added. The magazine will offer discounted subscriptions
to students in its lounge in the Michigan Union.
A wide swathe of its writers will attend the college cam-
puses. Thursday's panel with Wright includes reporters
with investigative, human interest, business and war cov-
erage experience. And, while the University got Hersh as
a speaker, Georgetown University will get Hendrik Hertz-
berg, another noteworthy writer, and the University of Texas
will host Anthony Lane, the magazine's witty and sardonic
In Thursday's panel, Wright predicted that the journalists
would discuss what makes them suited to write particular
r "The world is full of wonderful stories, but they're only
wonderful if someone recognizes what's wonderful about
them," he said.

Haitian police, U.N. troops attack rebels
information could not be confirmed by
The chant of hymns wafted from church
services and a U.N. helicopter roared over-
head as the operation got under way in Bel
Air, a poor neighborhood full of supporters of
ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
The crackdown came two days after
the government said it would root out
gangs that have blockaded areas of cer-
tain neighborhoods. Bel Air residents
accuse police of attacking them without
cause and making illegal arrests.
Haiti's capital has been convulsed by
violence since police shot and killed two
protesters at a Sept. 30 march to demand
the return of Aristide, who went into
exile amid an armed revolt in Febru-
ary. At least 56 people have been killed,
including the officer shot Sunday.
The operation began at 5 a.m. and con-
tinued into the afternoon, the first during
the unrest to last several hours. Previous
incursions into the neighborhood were
brief because police encountered gunfire.
A bulldozer pushed burnt-out cars
down Rue Macajoux to the Church of
Our Lady of Perpetual Help, where front
loaders lifted them into garbage trucks.
Graffiti scrawled across a church wall
called for the return of Aristide.
Peacekeepers used a sledgehammer
to knock down the second-story wall of
a corner building used by snipers, said
Gen. Americo Salvador, commander of
the Brazilian brigade that is leading the
U.N. mission to stabilize Haiti.
Police CommissionerJean-Brice Ralph
said his men detained two unarmed men
"because they are known bandits."
At the top of Rue Macajoux, a group
of young men jeered at police officers.
"All we want is to have President Aristide
returned," said Aristide Carlo, a 20-year-old
student. "The police accuse us of terrorism,
but it is they who are the bandits."
Human rights lawyer Renan Hedou-
ville said Sunday that his organization has
received reports of women and young girls
being raped in many of the troubled areas
in Port-au-Prince, especially Bel Air. Many
of the reports involve former Haitian sol-
diers who helped oust Aristide, he said.
Besides the Brazilian troops, about 100
police officers from Benin, Canada, France
and Spain took part in the operation.
Daniel Moskaluk, a spokesman for an
international police force training Haitian
officers, said Jordanian and Haitian riot
police would remain in the neighborhood.
Chinese police officers stand in formation after their arrival in Haiti yesterday. The
officers are part of a planned 125-member Chinese unit in Haiti.
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - Haitian killed, apparently in early resistance that

cal Scan Voting.
So far, voting systems in 200 cities have been
updated and the state will work to "ensure elec-
tion integrity" Land said when she announced
the decisions to purchase optical scan systems.
These reforms took place before the August
primaries and Kelly Chesney, spokeswoman
for Land, said no additional replacements of
old equipment would take place until after
this year's election.
Chesney said this was because voters who did
not have updated voting systems during the pri-
maries should not have to face a new voting meth-
od for the first time during a presidential election.
For this election, then, cities in Michigan
that will be using punch cards and lever voting
systems are still at risk of the hanging, dim-
pled and pregnant chads that caused problems
in Florida in 2000.
But Judy Dudzinski, city clerk of Dearborn
Heights - a city using punch cards - said they
are prepared for the upcoming elections and
that she was not concerned about facing prob-
lems similar to the last presidential election.
"If two corners (of the chad) are out, then that
will be a vote. That's the law," she said.
Dudzinski added that as soon as Wayne
County approves the new voting equipment,
Dearborn Heights would change to an optical
scan voting system.
Critics of Land were dealt a blow in a related
matter Sunday when a federal court of appeals
ruled that provisional ballots cast in the wrong pre-

a vote. That's the law."

cinct could not be counted.
Democrats had advocated a system in which
provisional ballots would be counted even if
they were cast in the wrong precinct but as long
as they were in the right city, town or village.
They said this new restrictive ruling sup-
presses the vote of lower income Michigan-
ders because they are more likely to relocate
often and not know the right precinct in
which to cast their ballot.
