Downtown still offers shelter to homeless
To Our Readers
This is the last issue of The Daily Cougar Online
The 'Big Three'
Cougar baseball pitchers (from left) Kyle Crowell, Duncan McAdoo and Shane Nance form one of the top pitching tandems in college baseball heading into posteseason play with a combined 22-4 record. The Conference USA-leading Cougars have six games left in the regular season.
When it opened, Enron Field was seen not only as a drawing card to bring
thousands of people into downtown and spur development in the district's
long-neglected east side. Some were concerned the stadium would also drive
away the area's homeless population and the organizations that serve it.
I'll actually be the editor during the summer, but most of you -- and
much of the current Daily Cougar staff -- won't be back until the fall.
So instead of devoting the staff editorial to self-promotion and inside
commentary, I thought it more appropriate to write a column.
In a recent interview with the writer and director of Human Traffic,
Justin Kerrigan, the talented and savvy filmmaker, said, "Everything is
personal in this film. It's like Jip (John Simm) going through a monumental
case of Mr Floppy. I went through that big time. It was a nightmare."
For the first time ever, The Daily Cougar conducted a fan poll to honor the top athletes, coaches and teams from the 1999-2000 school year.
