Florida, Revisited -- With the Nov. 2 presidential election looming on the horizon, the specter of the botched 2000 election - and the question "Could it happen again?" - is looming over voters' heads. To better understand the issue, a coalition of Gonzaga Law School organizations -- including the Black Law Students Association and the William O. Douglas Committee -- is sponsoring a "2004 Elections Symposium" on Thursday, Oct. 28, in the Law School's Moot Court Room. The film Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Elections will be shown, followed by a public forum facilitated by Spokane County Auditor Vicky Dalton, Spokane County Elections Manager Paul Brandt, political science professor Dr. Blaine Garvin and law professors James Celto-Vache and Larry Weiser. The event is free and open to the public. Call 328-4220.





One-Way Ticket -- Speaking of the upcoming election, we were amused to hear about the enormous success of the "Send the President Back to Crawford" Barn Dance for Moveon.org last weekend. More than 80 people were reported to have attended, and the event raised $915 (enough to send not only President Bush back to Texas, but also VP Cheney back to his Wyoming, economy class).





Libby in November -- Uh, we probably owe a little apology to any readers who braved the cold last weekend to come downtown for the Met's supposed showing of Libby, Montana. It turns out the calendar we'd been relying on was incorrect and the documentary -- which details one small town's environmental catastrophe and the legal battles that continue -- isn't playing until this week, Nov. 1-3. Showtimes are 3 pm, 5:30 pm and 8 pm.





Ballet With Bite -- Still looking for something to do this weekend that doesn't entail fake blood, cheesy wigs and enough alcohol to pickle an entire frat house? Consider the timeless horror and romantic elegance of Bram Stoker's Dracula, rendered in pirouettes and pli & eacute;s. Ballet Spokane, a professional ballet company under the artistic direction of Janet Wilder presents Dracula (in dance) on Oct. 30-31 at the Valley Performing Arts Center at Central Valley High School. For more information, call 922-3023.





Find Your Inner Faulkner -- Yep, it's time once again for the Inlander's annual fiction contest, and we're looking for well-crafted stories set in the beautiful Northwest. Submissions will be accepted through Nov. 26; the winning story will be published in the Dec. 23 issue and its author will receive not only the unbridled adoration and scads of phone numbers that a byline in the Inlander inevitably brings, but also a much-coveted gift certificate from Auntie's Bookstore. Start writin', fool!
