Maybe you‘re not sure what
to do about (‘hristinas shopping

are some suggestions about how
to wide the Shopping Monster.

lfyou‘re thinking about head-
ing to the mall. it has its pros and
eons. li‘ayette Mall has plenty of
department anti spet'ialty stores.
as well as iinttsual plaees like All
Wound lip. Natural Wonders and
the Learningsmith. The loeation
is also niee. There are plenty of
restaurants in and around the
mall when you need a break. and
there‘s a movie theater right
across the street.

Mall shopping isn‘t for every
one. If you have little time on
yotir hantls or are already on the

wage of a stress-indilt'ed

kids might do voti in. It. you don't

better than last, says

Mumme, Whalen

BL”??? Spaw


Sometimes. most often around l'K
sports. history is worth repeating.
Which is probably worth noting 1.3
years after the football program last
appeared in backto-back bowl games.

It was 198i when the (‘ats re
deemeti a previous postseason loss to
West Virginia in the Hall of Fame Bowl
with a onepoint victory over Wiseon
sin. ()fcourse. lTK coach llal Mumme
hopes to imitate tltenlcoach .lerry Clai-
borne‘s laterllecemher moio when his
teatn takes on Syracuse on Dec. 29 in
the Music (‘ity Bowl in Nashville.

“This team wants to win this howl
game and equal last year‘s record.”
.\lumme said

Some might consider that a tall or-
der for this year‘s (‘ats. which defeated
only one team with a winning record

ot‘del‘eat was 36 points. But then again.

cuse's slide were disappointing losses
to Bostoti (‘ollege and Rutgers. iii addi
tion to blowout defeats to Virginia
Tech and .\liami.

“I know they haven't had the kind
of season they had hoped to. which
makes them dangerous." Mumme said.
"They‘re a talented team."

Part of UK‘s late-season woes can
be attributed to its core of injury-
plagued receivers. Before games even
began. quarterback Dusty Bonner was
left without the services of senior Jim-
my Robinson. A season ending injury
to sophomore Dougie Allen would soon
follow. backed by missed games from
(iary Davis. Brad l’yatt and Quentin
Mct‘ord. who will return to action
against Syracuse.

“To get guys like (Quentin and
Brad will be a big lift for us." Bonner
said. “They are just so fast that they
can separate from people in a hurry.
.\ii\ little you get a player back. it

“We began the year as a young

team and towards the end of the year
we just kept getting younger anti
younger because of the injuries." free
safety Anthony Wadja added. "By the
end of the year the sophomores were
being looked at as the tnost experi-
enced guys on team.”

The UK coach recalled a (lay in Au-
gust when All»American to-be James
Whalen told him the 1999 Cats would
be better than Mumme's second rendir
tion ofAir Raid in Lexington.

“That can be true." Mumme said.
“if the records are the same, l‘d say
this team is a better team because they
played together and overachieved.
They weren't as talented. but they
were better in the team concept."



Keith Bogans will return to his
home state and try to wreak havoc
on Maryland once again.

The UK freshman guard scored
17 points in 22 minutes when the
two teams clashed just five games
ago on the Wildcat slate in the
semifinals of the Preseason NIT in
New York. UK prevailed. 61-58.

“l want to do anything that will
help this team. whether it's coming
otfthe bench, scoring or starting."
said Bogans. "Whenever coach

“We're a young team and peo-

UK center Jamaal Magloire. "One
reason I came back my senior sea
son was to be part of this team and
the talent we have.“

Win number one over the
Terps didn't come easy for UK. The
(Tats let a 16-point first half lead
wither to a 52-52 tie with less than
six minutes to play. A potential
game-tying three pointer by Mary-
land at the buzzer slid off the back
of the rim.

Maryland was knocked off by
George Washington a couple weeks

“Hopefully we'll start off

The films that forever changed cinema

Films and filmmakers that influenced
the art form of the Twentieth century

By Matt Mulcahey


Although it appears to
be merely a flat surface.
there's soIiiething magical
about a movie screen. It's
a doorway. a portal into
another world. another di-
mension Film is the ulti-
mate escape from reality
for dreamers.

Here are the films
that most shaped and in-
fluenced the way we view
filrri. (With thanks to UK
professor Dr. Greg Waller
for his insights. which
make up a large portion of
the following listl.

1. Birth of a Nation

classic began the Ameri-
can film's never-ending
quest for epic spectacle.

teur. with Orson Welles
serving as actor direc-
tor producer co-writer at
the age of 24.

4. A Streetcar Named

The moment
Brando burst onto
screen with his mix of
brute intensity and raw
sexuality. acting would
never be the same. Along
with James Dean in Rebel

:3 Bonnie and Clyde

Along with Sam Peck~
inpah‘s bloody band of
antiheroes in The Wild
Bunch, Bonnie and Clyde
forever changed the way
movies viewed violence.

There is a

Santa Claus

From the Editorial

Page. New York Sun,


i am eight years old.
Some of my little
friends say there is
no Santa Claus. Papa
says, ”If you see it in
The Sun, it's so."
Please tell me the
truth, is there a
Santa Claus?
— Virginia O'Hanlon

Virginia, your little
friends are wrong.
They have been
affected by the
skepticism of a
skeptical age. They
do not believe except
what they see. They
think that nothing
can be which is not
comprehensible by
their little minds. All
minds, Virginia.
whether they be
men's or children's.
are little. In this
great universe of
ours, man is a mere
insect, an ant in his
intellect as compared
with the boundless
world about him, as
measured by the
intelligence capable
of grasping the whole
of truth and

Yes, Virginia, there is a
Santa Claus.

He exists as certainly as
love and generosity
and devotion exist.
and you know that
they abound and give
to your life its
highest beauty and
joy. Alas! How dreary
would be the world if
there were no Santa
Claus! it would be as
dreary as if there
were no Virginias.
There would be no
childlike faith then,
no poetry. no
romance to make
tolerable this
existence. We should
have no enjoyment.
except in sense and
sight. The external
light with which
childhood fills the
world would be

Not believe in Santa
Claus! You might as
well not believe in
fairies. You might get
your papa to hire
men to watch in all
the chimneys on
Christmas Eve to
catch Santa Claus.
but even if you did
not see Santa Claus
coming down, what
would that prove?
Nobody sees Santa
Claus, but that is no
sign that there is no
Santa Claus. The most
real things in the
world are those that
neither children nor
men can see. Did you
ever see fairies
dancing on the lawn?
Of course not, but
that's no proof that
they are not there.
Nobody can conceive
or imagine all the
wonders there are
unseen and unseeable
in the world.

You tear apart the
baby’s rattle and see
what makes the noise
inside, but there is a
veil covering the
unseen world which
not the strongest
man, nor even the
united strength of all
the strongest men
that ever lived could
tear apart. Only faith,
poetry. love.
romance, can push
aside that curtain and
view and picture the
supernatural beauty
and glory beyond. Is
it all real? Ah,
Virginia, in all this
world there is
nothing else real and

No Santa Claus? Thank
God he lives and lives
forever. A thousand
years from now,
Virginia. nay l0 times
10,000 years from

Merry Christmas and
Nappy New Year!!!








Stopping law abuse

Kickball lawsuit another example of selfish lawsuits

Whatever its origin. our society and the social in-
teraction within it are becoming increasingly litigious.
The law has always played a prominent role in deter-
mining the way people behave in social settings and.
within a reasonable scope. this is clearly a good thing.
The law provides boundaries for people and provides a
framework in which we can expect most people to act.
This legal structure loses much of its appeal when it
stops directing social interaction and begins restrict-
ing anti actually eliminating many of the ways we have
come to deal with people.

it is increasingly apparent that the tendency of our
society to place blame on others for problems in our
lives has led to the expansion of our legal structure far
beyond its desired limits.

One example that perfectly illustrates the danger-
ous, and even just mind-boggling. way in which the
law is being misused in social situations gained recog-
nition last week. A cafeteria worker. who was super
vising children at an after-school activity at Russell
Cave Elementary. was hit by a kickball with which the
children were playing. Apparently during a game, the
soft kickball ricocheted off of a wall and hit the cafete-
ria worker in the jaw. She now claims that she has

damaged vision in one eye and an injured jaw from the
incident. and is suing the parents of the kid who
kicked the ball. Though she reportedly asked the stu-
dents to be more careful with the game. the incident
was clearly an accident. It seems extremely doubtful
that the elementary school-age child could have hit the
lady in the jaw from any distance, even if that had been
his intent. One could only imagine the kid calling the
shot. “Off the wall. under the banister. over the school
bus. one bounce . nothing but jaw!“

For our legal system to even hear out this clearly
frivolous lawsuit not only takes time away from legiti-
mate cases. but also lends it a certain amount of signif'
icance which could only encourage other such cases.

If indeed this woman has sustained the injuries
she describes. she clearly deserves our pity. It is anoth~
er thing all together to say that the boy and his family
are legally responsible for the injuries.

Accidents happen. Sometimes events largely be-
yond our control determine the major twists of our
lives. To blame anyone vaguely associated with in«
stances of “bad luck" is clearly misguided and hurts so-
ciety as a whole by making people weary of being sued
for even the most innocent misstep.


D ' Finals

uring ,
It seems that if you ask any-
body on this campus how
they are doing. you will get
the “f“ word thrown back in
your face. l'm not talking
about the four-letter word
that our mothers would take
a soap bar to our mouths if
we use. but the six-letter
word that is kryptonite for
even the most elite of college
students: finals.

Even the most smart. organized. prayerful, in-
shape. well-studied and rested students have fallen
victim to the “f“ word.
