Tech Dooms Physicists To Anonymity

It was with amusement that I read your “World and Nation” article about the experimental confirmation of supersymmetry [“Scientists Find Evidence to Support ‘Supersymmetry,’” Feb. 9], done by some “scientists,” a few more “physicists,” an unidentified “ongoing experiment” and a mysterious list of “results announced Thursday.” Is it asking too much to know who we we are talking about -- maybe even to get the name of a lab? Or are scientists forever doomed to be cast as an occult, anonymous mass? Oh, please say it ain’t so.

[LTE]Police Logs Were Delightful to Read[body]
I would like to concur with Erin R. Conwell ’03’s letter to the editor [“Bring Back Police Log,” Feb. 13]. Having recently returned from a semester abroad, I was most disappointed to see the loss of the Police Log from the pages of The Tech. It provided a point of contact and communication between the Campus Police and the community. As Conwell pointed out, it was a delight and a pleasure to read on a regular basis. It provided points of discussion in each issue: the elegant understatement of “Tang Hall: Woman reported screaming. Same later found to be distressed.”
I urge The Tech and the Campus Police to return the Police Log to its rightful place in these pages.

Please bring the Police Logs back! They were a lot funnier than the comics.
