New Developments in the Duke University Lacrosse Rape Scandal

DURHAM, N.C., May 15 – _A third lacrosse player was indicted Monday in the rape investigation that has raised racial and class tensions between Duke University and its hometown._

_David F. Evans, 23, of Bethesda, Md., a team captain who lived in the house where a black woman says she was sexually assaulted by three white players during a party, was charged with rape, first-degree sexual offense and kidnapping. Mr. Evans was indicted on the same charges as two of his teammates, Reade Seligmann, 20, of Essex Fells, N.J., and Collin Finnerty, 19, of Garden City, N.Y., who surrendered April 18._

Is Work a Four-Letter Word???

Here’s an interesting story. *It seems as though Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter Chelsea have a typical mother/daughter relationship: they say things that tick one another off.* In a recent appearance, Sen. Clinton told a crowd that young people today think they are entitled to much more than they are. She said we are a _”culture that has a premium on instant gratification”_. and that *young people today think _”work is a four letter word.”_*

Chelsea, 26, who was hired in 2003 as a consultant by McKinsey & Co., with a very generous starting salary, took immediate offense to her mother’s accusation. She phoned her mother and her mom ended up apologizing to her.

Now here is a tricky subject. I think *our generation is a little more selective about the work they want to do, but only because there is so much more opportunity today.* In our parent’s generation, the plan was to graduate college and get a steady entry-level position and work your way up the ladder. Today we stay in school longer, *we spend so much more time goofing off on the web, but that internet knowledge is what makes us so much more employable.* It _is_ possible to start high these days. *And who says we’re not qualified?* After all, Chelsea received a master’s degree from Oxford University in England after graduating from Stanford in 2001. She’s probably _really_ smart and possibly even deserving of her six-figure salary _(not saying that her role as once-first-daughter has nothing to do with it)_. *But hey, all I’m saying is that we _(this generation)_ have a different dream.* It’s about working less, having fun with the work that we _do_ do and making the most out of life. And dang it…we’re gonna do it! “Read the news story”://
