Sink one for tolerance

It seems at least one group of
students has figured out how to
deal with religious differences.
Yesterday morning I was walk-
ing out of my history of Rome
lecture in Angell Hall, trying to
decide whether Emperor Ves-
pasian looked more like John
McCain or Dick Cheney. In the
midst of my pondering, an excited
male voice behind me that caught
my attention.
"We had a Catholic-Jewish
beer pong tournament this week-
end," the voice told a friend.
I slowed down to listen. This
could be interesting.
"Yeah there was this giant 40-
cup cross versus this giant 40-cup
star of David," he said. "It was
awesome."
He went on to describe how
the game had gone on for several
rounds.
So did Jesus best Abraham in
this knock-down, drag-out fight
for the ages? or did the tribe tri-
umph over a team of goyim?

Unfortunately, my legs were
too sore from a Saturday night
dodgeball competition to keep
pace with the two guys. After just
a few seconds of eavesdropping, I
was out of earshot.
But their idea is still with me.
Who'd have known? The best
hope for world peace may not be
democracy, negotiation or the
eradication of poverty. Maybe it's
beer pong.
CHRISTINA HILDRETH
Teaching moment
While standing at the cor-
ner of North University Avenue
and State Street, my friend and I
watched as two women attempted
to cross State Street. Even though
the "Do Not Walk" sign was flash-
ing, the women tried to make
their way through traffic. As they
dodged through the intersection,
it was clear that one car was not
going to stop.
The women halted in their

tracks in order to avoid being hit.
The car almost ran over their toes.
After the near catastrophe, the
women casually continued across
the street while the "Do Not
Walk" sign was still flashing. one
person looked at my friend and me
and simply said, "Must've been a
professor."
AMANDA MARKOWITZ
Dancing with a
star
Last week, I stopped and
watched as an older woman
stopped for several minutes to
dance to the music of the Diag har-
monica player. While she didn't
dance particularly well, she was
obviously enjoying herself. When
the number was over, the musician
and the dancer each applauded the
other.
Together they brought a smile to
this Diag-crosser's face.

their festive faux palm trees on the deck of the Ann Arbor
Bed and Breakfast on East Huron Street last night. The
Materkas have owned the bed and breakfast for three years.

dier killed in battle in 2002
will be used to impregnate
a woman he had never met, The
Associated Press reported. An

that their sperm to be saved if
they are killed so they can start
a family after their death.
