EDITORIAL & OPINIONS
We were going to write an editorial about the protest at the
University of Toronto relating to the Middle East conflict. However,
the editorial board of The Gazette would like to use this space
to declare that we are sick of violence at Canadian universities
mirroring the conflict on the other side of the world, as well
as the ignorance of members on both sides who purport to want
to openly discuss the matter while simultaneously closing the
door to opposing views.
To write any more on this matter would only serve to further
a cycle of useless rhetoric. If the two sides are incapable
of respectfully and honestly reaching a dialogue at universities
in this country, then there is little hope for the problem
on a global scale. Period.
Dorian Gray alive
and well in 2003
For a recent English assignment, I was planning
to write a short play spoofing Oscar Wilde’s The Picture
of Dorian Gray. Titled “Dorian Gray Orders a Pizza,” a
poor pizza boy would’ve become enthralled with Dorian
during a routine delivery.
