GEO
From Page 1
progressed, crowds of onlookers
gathered around the protesters.
GEO President Helen Ho, a Com-
munication Studies GSI, said the
demonstration showed the union's
need totake action outside bargain-
ing sessions to convince the Univer-
sity to increase GSI salaries.
"The administrations have
come to the table three times a
week with nothing to propose to
us, so we are really hoping that
this demonstration show solidar-
ity and strength," Ho said. "We
are hoping that the visibility of
this action will be enough to sig-
nal to the University that we have
people who care and people who
are vocal about it, and that we
have students who are not afraid

of political action."
Earlier in the week, Jeff Frum-
kin, the University's senior direc-
tor of academic human resources,
said the University was still hope-
ful it could reach an agreement
with GEO to prevent a strike.
"We hope everyone can go to
class, both the students and the
instructors," he said. Nobody
likes the idea of that instruction
being interfered with. it's unfair
to undergraduates."
A half hour into the demonstra-
tion, hundreds of protesters began
marching from the Diag toward
Regents' Plaza. Halting traffic
and chanting along the way, they
ended in front of the Fleming
Administration Building, where a
meeting of the University Board of
Regents was underway.
Though the current contract
negotiations don't directly impact

her, LSA freshmanAngelaVerkade
marched to express support for
her GSIs.
"I really love all the work and
teaching that they do," she said.
"I think the rally will be effec-
tive. They have a point and they
are definitely making a lot of noise
about it."
Once the demonstrators arrived
at the Regents'Plaza, several mem-
bers of GEO spoke to the crowd, as
did David Hecker, president of the
Michigan division of the Ameri-
can Federation of Teachers.
"A rally like this shows to Presi-
dent Coleman and the Board of
Regents that graduate student
instructors are serious about get-
ting a new fair contract, and they
are going to do what it takes to
get that contract," Hocker said.
"A rally of this size shows the
commitment of graduate student

instructors to fight for what they
deserve."
About 100 demonstrators from
GEO entered the Michigan Union
from the plaza, filling the build-
ing's hallways and Amer's Caf6
with chants. The GSIs then filed
into Wolverine Room A, where
yesterday's bargaining session
between GEO and the University's
negotiating team took place.
During that session, the Univer-
sity's negotiating team bumped its
previous proposal of a 3-percent
increase in the contract's first
year to 3.9 percent, according to
Patrick O'Mahen, a GEO spokes-
man and Political Science GSL
Although GEO and the Univer-
sity's bargaining team agreed to
3-percent salary increases in the
second and third year of their new
contract, GEO has asked for a 9-
percent increase in the first year.

Kilpatrick to learn fate soon

DETROIT (AP) - A two-
month-old text-messaging sex
scandal will come to a head on
Monday when a county prosecutor
announces whether she intends to
pursue perjury or other charges
against Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick
and his former top aide.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym
Worthy will hold a news confer-
ence at 11 a.m. Monday to release
the results of her investigation into
testimony Kilpatrick and ex-Chief,
of Staff Christine Beatty gave last
summer in a whistle-blowers'
trial.
Kilpatrick and Beatty denied
under oath that they had a roman-
tic relationship in 2002 and 2003.
But that testimony was contradict-
ed by published excerpts of sexu-

ally explicit text messages left on
Beatty's city-issued pager.
Worthy's decision has been
anticipated for weeks.
She announced an independent
investigation shortly after the
Detroit Free Press first reported
the text messages in late January.
A conviction of lying under oath
can bring up to 15 years' imprison-
ment. Under Detroit's charter, Kil-
patrick would be removed as mayor
if he is convicted of a felony.
Kilpatrick says he will be "vin-
dicated" when all aspects of the
scandal are made public.
"I will be politically vindicated,
I will be legally vindicated and
then people have the opportunity
to look at what this city has done,"
he said.

For Friday, March 21, 2008
ARIES
(March 21to April 19)
This is a harsh Full Moon for your
sign. Therefore, take it easy. Don't be
pushy with people, especially partners
and close friends. And don't be pushy
with parents and bosses! Chill out.
TAURUS
(April 201to May 20)
Avoid arguments with others today,
especially at work. You might feel that
you're being attacked. (It's just the Full
Moon energy gone awry - plus, people
are pushy today.)
GEMINI
(May 21to June 20)
You might be disappointed in a friend
today, especially someone who is
involved with your children. Romance is
also strained. Don't overreact to things.
Let it be.
CANCER
(June 21to July 22)
Power struggles with parents and
bosses are likely. You can't seem to keep
your home life happy or your job. If you
do, you're spreading yourself too thin.
(It was ever/thus.)
LEO
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
This is an accident-prone day. Take
extra precautions. Slow down. Don't
drive fast. Be aware of everyone around
you. Think before you speak. Be patient
with yourself and others. (Gasp.)
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Disagreements about money or shared
property are highly likely today.
Furthermore, people don't want to be
cooperative. They're stubborn and
unmoving. Yikes! (Postpone important
decisions.)
LIBRA
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
This is a classic day for power strng-
gles, because today's Fullk Mon is in
your sign. Yoa don't like conflict.

Therefore, if things get tense, run away!
SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 toNov. 21)
Difficulties at work can arise easily
today. People either oppose you or are
trying to prove something different. (It's
quite exhausting.) Demonstrate grace
under pressure.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22 toDec. 21)
Romance is in thetoilet today. In addi-
tion, parents might have difficulty deal-
ing with children. Give everyone some
extra space. Relax and take it slower.
(It's the Full Moon today.)
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22to Jan. 19)
Relations with authority figures are
definitely tested today. Family members
might be tense. Don't suggest improve-
ments to others. (That will go over like a
lead balloon.)
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20to Feb. 18)
This is an accident-prone day for your
sign because of today's Full Moon.
Things can distract you or make you
tense. Therefore, be patient. Slow down.
PISCES
(Feb. 19to March 20)
Financial matters might disappoint
you today. You might encounter obsta-
cles to how you earn your money or how
you spend it. Go gently.
YOU BORN TODAY Many people
born on this day are talented and versa-
tile. It's vital that you be able to express
yourself creatively. Fortunately, you
have courage and you're very direct
about going after what you want. You
can be a fanciful dreamer, yet you're a
hard worker! You're a born leader and
never wishy-washy about your views. In
the year ahead, you'll learn something
valuable.
