Safe sex for squirrels

WAY PAST HIS BEDTIME

Researchers at the University
of California at Davis are feed-
ing birth control to squirrels, The
Associated Press reported.
The scientists plan to inject the
squirrels with the hormone in an
effort to reduce the non-native
fox squirrel population. University
officials said there were none of
these squirrels on campus seven
years ago, but now there are close
to 400.
PROTESTING PROP. 8
A group of students at Princ-
eton University are promoting The
Princeton Sidewalk Protection Act,
a proposal banning sidewalks for
all freshmen, the Daily Princeto-
nian reported.
The group held a demonstration
on Princeton's Firestone Plaza last
week to promote the proposal, also
known asPrincetonProposal 8. The
students hope to draw attention to
what they think is the injustice of

California's Proposal 8, which bans
gay marriage, through satire.
"We are rather perturbed that
the state has allowed the majority
to rescind the rights of a minority
group: the very sort of thing a con-
stitutional democracy is designed
to prevent," said Princeton senior
Chris Simpson, the founder of the
movement.
THE FIGHT AGAINST PIRATING
A federal judge in Massachusetts
stopped subpoenas issued by the
Recording Industry Association of
America because Boston Univer-
sity has proven that it doesn't have
enough information to identify the
students accused of illegal file-
sharing, the Chronicle of Higher
Education reported.
The ruling is the latest develop-
ment in London-Sire vs. Does 1-4,
an ongoing case against unidenti-
fied Boston students. It implies that
all subpoenas could be dropped if

universities cannot supply enough
information, and may also mean
that IP addresses won't be suffi-
cient identity proof in the future.
YOUR PAL, THE TERRORIST?
Two students from the Univer-
sity of Maryland were added to
the terrorism watch list after par-
ticipating in an anti-death penalty
event in 2005, the Diamondback
reported.
The students were both mem-
bers of an anti-death penalty stu-
dent group at the time.
State police acknowledged that
this was a misuse of power, and
that they had sent an undercover
officer to investigate any potential
plans for protest.
The students said the goal of the
forum was not to protest, and that
they aren't sure why they were sin-
gled out for the list from the other
group members at the event.
