Is anyone surprised that Kurt a former Spade and Dr. Kam an honorary Spade vouched to keep the power? Wow! Pay attention Senate...you were just bamboozled!!!!

This whole thing has been a disgrace from the start. Frankly, I'm ashamed of my alma mater. Shame on Gogue and his cronies for shoving this down Auburn's throat. Based on a poll carried out by the very parties pushing this travesty, which was subject to no auditing of any kind, a significant minority of students and faculty said they were against a ban; that the anti-smoking crowd edged out the rest was used as justification to impose a total ban on all smoking on campus; there was no negotiation, no concessions. Of course, that was years ago, and the administration gets to make sure the official records reflect their version of events. And they're at least good enough to offer reeducation training to poor, misguided smokers. Papers, comrade?

The Blackface took place in 2001 and not 2006. http://www.ocm.auburn.edu/clippings/2006/103106.html

I agree. We REALLY need an alternative to everybody having to drive a vehicle to where they want or need to be. As for students, they could spend time reading, or doing work while on the long rides. As for the rest of us, we could do the same. I would MUCH rather be attending business matters, personal or otherwise, while on the LONG commute from Montgomery to Mobile, than driving! Also, if Alabama and Mobile would do what is needed to regain a cruise lines, the train would be most helpful. One could travel by train to boat!

I do not know the cost, but I do know that driving deprives me of valuable time when I could be working while traveling such distances.Trains might be expensive in some respects, while not so in others.

In response to your #1 comment, you should be ashamed that you use yahoo as a search engine. However, if you own a small business and truly believe that America had anything remotely close to equal rights on July 4th, 1777, you have officially insulted the last 236 years of this country's brutal history. Please feel free to "yahoo" search the following (but from the looks of it it appears that you may not be able to read anything that takes rational thought): 1) The Trail of Tears 2) The Racial Equality Proposal 3) Slavery 4) Martin Luther King Jr. 5) Rosa Parks 6) Japanese American Internment 7) The Wounded Knee Massacre 8) Daniel Ellsburg 9) Howard Zinn 10) Rape statistics in the US military 11) How to go fuck yourself

I'm really astonished by those trying to defend UPC. This isn't personal and has nothing to do with your friends on the council. Thank you, Plainsman, for writing this editorial and drawing attention to the fact that similarly sized universities are booking much better acts than Auburn. I'm sorry, but Gloriana should not be a headliner for anything!

Thanks for the update!

I had no idea the Creek Indians first settled Loachapoka in 1972! Where'd they go? I don't usually see too many Native Americans at the Syrup Sop.
