New York Times columnist to speak on campus David Carr, a media columnist and culture reporter for The New York Times, will speak at Macalester next Thursday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. in the John B. Davis Lecture Hall.

Carr’s talk is titled “From Iraq to Katrina: Have the Media Gotten Tougher?” He has spent the last 25 years covering media issues including print, digital, film, radio and television.

Prior to starting at The New York Times, Carr wrote for The Atlantic Monthly and was the editor of The Twin Cities Reader, a Minneapolis-based alternative weekly.

Carr’s talk is sponsored by The New York Times and is part of Macalester’s bulk subscription to the paper that began last year.

CSO to sponsor J-term hurricane relief trip

The Community Service Office is coordinating a trip to the Gulf Coast area for Jan. 12-21 to help with disaster relief efforts.

The trip is open to students, faculty, staff and alumni. The group will work with Presbytarian Disaster Assistance, an organization that provides relief and development work after national and international disasters, according to its web site. Although the organization is faith-based, the Macalester trip does not have a required spiritual component.

For more information, visit or e-mail [email protected] to indicate your interest by Nov. 5.

    Currently it seems like Expression Engine is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
