Diag candlelight vigil
commemorates 9 11


Hundreds gather at
memorial event
Daily Staff Reporter
Flickering candles dotted the crowd
on the Diag last night, as several hun-
dred students gathered at the campus
wide ceremony to commemorate the
tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001
terrorist attacks.
LSA seniors Chris Dietzel and Jenna
Weinberg spearheaded the event after
they realized there was no official 9/11

campus commemorative event sched-
uled for yesterday.
"(Jenna) and I both agreed that it
was necessary and decided to take it
upon ourselves (to) step forward and
have the service we all wanted," Diet-
zel said.
The 30-minute vigil began with a
short introduction by Dietzel, who
emphasized the importance of inspir-
ing change in the world.
"Our goal for tonight's memorial is
first and foremost to remember and
recognize all of the lives lost because of
the September 11 attacks," he said. "But
also we are here as a campus united to
strive to obtain respect, understanding
and peace."

Dietzel's address was followed by
School of Music, Theatre & Dance
sophomore Shea Rennee singing the
national anthem. Vice President of Stu-
dent Affairs E. Royster Harper spoke
next on the steps of the Hatcher Gradu-
ate Library and told the crowd that she
stood in the exact same spot 10 years
ago when students congregated on the
night of the attacks.

Borders to
close today
Future of company
still unknown
Daily Staff Reporter
Ann Arbor-based Borders Group Inc.
said it will close its flagship location at
612 East Liberty St. today, six weeks after
announcing it would liquidate its 399
stores and all of its assets.
But even as the chain liquidates stores
nationwide and clears stock at discount
rates as high as 90 percent, Borders's
future remains uncertain. An auction
of the group's intellectual property -
including its brand name, website and
customer loyalty program - is set for
Sept. 14. This leaves the possibility that
Borders could continue as an online
bookseller, like the now online-only elec-
tronics retailer Circuit City.
It is unclear if Borders, which
announced its liquidation on July 18,
has received any bids for its intellec-
tual property. The bids were due Sept.
8, according to Borders spokeswoman
Mary Davis. However, she wrote in an
e-mail interview to The Michigan Daily
that she would not comment further until
the information is ready to be made to the
As it nears the end of its liquidation
process, Borders is also entangled in a
pair of legal battles with former employ-
ees and business partners. Davis declined
