GOP comes out ahead
in top Texas races
Democratic hopes for a new face in Texas politics were
wiped away Tuesday night after Republican Rick Perry handily won the governor's
race and Democrat Ron Kirk narrowly missed his chance at the U.S. Senate.
The tallying of votes dragged on late into the night, leaving many state
and national races too close to call.
Regents displeased with PeopleSoft
A heated discussion about the UH System's use of the
PeopleSoft computer software system erupted during an otherwise average
Board of Regents meeting Tuesday morning.
Speakers aim for peace, unity
Instead of examining why countries are on the brink of
war with one another, a discussion panel composed of four guest speakers
on Tuesday addressed the necessity of interfaith dialogue and its potential
to bridge conflicting religious ideals.
In Tuesday's edition of The Daily Cougar, Homecoming
queen nominee Victoria Gonzalez's name was misspelled and her current classification
(senior) was wrong. Also, the Walt Disney World College Program presentation
being held today is taking place at UH's central campus, not UH-Downtown.
