Editor's Notes
College students get carded - The bad thing about any contest-from the august awarding of Nobel Prizes to television's latest quiz show, The Weakest Link-is that not everyone can be a winner. It's a lesson that most of us learn early in life. We get over it. We suck it up. We try, try again. And, once we're out of kindergarten, we're usually self-composed enough to congratulate the person who comes out on top.

From the President
What we fight when we fight against ignorance - We have two enemies: suffering and ignorance. With these words, the University's Dr. Kurt Hecox described the motive force of his work in pediatric neurology, particularly his work on epilepsy in children. Guess what fields are central to his work. Among others, physics and computer science. His work is but one example of the special ways in which Chicago is engaged in the war against suffering and ignorance. At the heart of that war is a commitment to the notion that the war against suffering will ultimately be won only if the war against ignorance is won as well. [ MORE ]
