Pediatric doctors at the Mattel Children's Hospital rallied against President Bush last week upon hearing that he might actually veto a bill that would invest $35 million in children's health insurance, SCHIP. It was vetoed anyway. This week the UCLA School of Public Health received a $4.25 million grant to research/improve health in low-income families. -- Daily Bruin

Football fans have been miserable and distraught over a measurable 20-6 loss to then 0-5 Notre Dame last night. As always, some blame Dorrel, some blame walk-on QB Bethel-Thompsonfor throwing two game-winning interceptions...but I don't. I mean seriously, after the first interception he still had the balls to make risky passes in an attempt to bring UCLA back from the hole they were in...which kind of led to another interception. But you get my point.
