    A group of disgruntled staffers at heralded Harvard rag The Crimson said good-bye to the outgoing leadership with a group email that includes the phrases "epically unpopular," "forever-flaccid penis," and "group-fisting."

    Harvard Athletics ^ | Monday, February 5th, 2007 | Andrea Chaknis
    Sean Barrett has seen a lot in his four years at Harvard. He’s consistently been among the top Crimson finishers at various regional meets since his freshman year. He’s seen coaches come and go. He’s competed with and against formidable tracksters across New England and beyond. Now he’s getting ready to embark on a journey that will show him more about himself and his world than he could ever imagine. Barrett has joined the U.S. Marine Corps and has committed, initially, to serving four years. It’s a decision that seems almost incongruous for a bright athlete from the Ivy League....

    A Harvard student newspaper cartoonist has been suspended from the paper and two of her cartoons retracted after editors learned of their resemblance to ones published in other media outlets. Harvard Crimson staffers found four cartoons by Kathleen Breeden, a sophomore, bore striking similarity to cartoons shown on a website that compiles cartoons from around the world. Crimson editors found that two of the four cartoons were inappropriately similar to two on the website, one by Walt Handelsman of Newsday and another by Stephen Breen of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Breeden could not be reached for comment Monday. Both Handelsman...

    DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland will play host to the world's biggest ever strip poker contest if bookmaker Paddy Power gets its way. The idea was originally floated as an April Fool's joke but generated so much interest that Dublin-based Paddy Power has decided to look seriously at organizing a contest it hopes will find a place in the Guinness Book of Records. "We got almost 100 requests to take part," the company's spokesman, also called Paddy Power, said. "We're trying to investigate whether it's possible or whether we'll get put in prison for it." Poker has become big business in...

    Maid for Harvard?Read that. I'm not sure I can quite get my mind around the argument. People who have money can pay this service to clean their dorm room. Sounds like an ok idea, right? Nope, it's discriminatory because people with money will be able to have clean dorm rooms and people without will have messy dorm rooms and that destroys campus unity. All this from an Ivy League school. Any more questions why employers don't regard college degrees as much as they used to?

    Early in December, with a photographer and his assistant, I drove from Nebraska, near the geographical center of the United States, to the heart of Texas -- more than 700 miles, through empty spaces and sprawling cities and all or parto f four states. We headed pretty much due south, no dodging or weaving. And never did we pass within 100 miles of a county that voted for Democrat John F. Kerry in the recent election.THIS RED SEA DOES NOT APPEAR ON ANY MAP BUT ONE. Neal Chaput and Jonathan Dolan from Kansas both voted for Kerry. Joyce and...

    The Crimson Tide - Harvard ^ | Wednesday, February 11, 2004 | By ZACHARY M. SEWARD
    Ten months after returning home from Vietnam, a young John Kerry strolled into the offices of The Harvard Crimson on Feb. 13, 1970 as an obscure underdog in the Democratic Congressional primary. The decorated veteran, honorably discharged after a tour of duty in the Mekong Delta, spoke in fierce terms during his daylong interview with The Crimson’s Samuel Z. Goldhaber ’72. But almost 34 years later, Kerry’s remarks on American military and intelligence operations vastly diverge from opinions expressed by the present-day Sen. John F. Kerry, D.-Mass., the leading candidate in the Democratic primary for president. “I’m an internationalist,” Kerry...

    netWMD - The War to Mobilize Democracy ^ | August 26, 2004 | Andrew L. Jaffee
    As Democratic hopeful John Kerry whines about the Swift Boat Veterans questioning his Vietnam “war service,” more revelations have surfaced which challenge the legitimacy of his first Purple Heart. The Senator claims that that medal was received because of enemy fire he took, but his own personal diary contradicts that assertion. While the Senator’s supporters tried unsuccessfully to portray President Bush as being “AWOL” during the Vietnam War, they won’t address the fact that Kerry tried to defer his military service at that time for 12 months. And what would Kerry and his friends say about the fact that his...

    June 11, 2002 The End of an Uncivil WarBy NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF AMBRIDGE, Mass. — The historical mutual sneering between America's soldiers and its universities is coming to an end. One of the scars from Vietnam was this reciprocal contempt, leading each side to despise a caricature of the other: redneck, baby-killing, misogynous storm troopers with the ethical sensitivity of Nazis; and arrogant, long-haired America-hating rebels, all wimps and probably mostly gay feminist Communists as well. Here in Ivy Central — dazzling this time of year with new Harvard graduates and pot-bellied fogeys oozing false modesty at reunions ("I...
