Going, going ... gone: Junior communication major Celeste Garcia is auctioned off for $250 at the "Latin Lovers" auction Friday in the Cougar Den. Proceeds from the auction went to the Hispanic Student Association.


An anti-abortion group unaffiliated with the University displayed posters with graphic depictions of aborted fetuses along the sidewalks of Butler Plaza (between the M.D. Anderson Memorial Library and Philip Hoffman Hall) for about an hour and a half Monday before leaving under threat of arrest.

In metal cages open to the elements lie 300 prisoners, some of them allegedly members of the al-Qaida network and others former Taliban soldiers. Hooded and shackled, they were shipped from Afghanistan after being captured and are currently held by the U.S. military at its naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

If this sounds familiar to you at all, you're probably quite well acquainted with the work of Kevin Smith, the writer and director of Clerks, Mallrats,
Chasing Amy and Dogma. Smith's latest project, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, is set for video and DVD release today.

The Cougars are now a living testament to the old saying, "Life doesn't always go according to plan."
