Sex for money
Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts Professor Michelle Wolf was quoted in a Sept. 7 Contra Costa Times article about the HBO series "Tell Me You Love Me," which features lengthy and explicit sex scenes. In the article, producers and cable executives claimed creative factors were behind the racy segments. But Wolf expressed skepticism that creative expression was the sole reason. "You can never take money out of the equation when it comes to television," she said. "[The cable networks] want their shows to be seen as cool and edgy. They want to give people something they've never seen before. And, clearly, they want to make money."

Gator gridiron: gone for good?
Director of Athletics Mike Simpson was featured in a Sept. 11 San Francisco Examiner article about the demise of football at SF State and other college campuses in California. He stated, "Because of the issues of financing, the need for gender equality in sports and a lack of available competition, the point [of bringing it back] is almost moot."
