Slowhand: Sophomore philosophy major Ryan McCarthy practices his guitar playing near the University Center on a cool and pleasant
Tuesday afternoon.

Inside the UH Bookstore, lines of students waiting to buy this semester's books snaked around shelves and business was clearly booming. But
outside at the University Center, a small cadre of mostly history students led by associate history professor Bob Buzzanco passed out flyers and
called for a boycott of the campus bookstore.

Welcome to yet another semester of brilliant patriotic rhetoric and conservative commentary. Today's focus is on the recent collapse of Houston-based energy giant Enron, the political ramifications of that collapse and the potential renaming of our brand-new baseball facility.

The other Golden Globe nominees don't seem to stand a chance against this year's A Beautiful Mind and Moulin Rouge, as both films will go into the ceremonies with six nominations apiece but there's always room for a surprise or two.

Maybe they just wanted to make it suspenseful, but the Cougars needed overtime to beat Texas Christian, 82-71, in a heart-stopping thriller Tuesday.
