Feel free to bring your lunch!

* Fifth Annual Ethics Lecture, Wednesday, April 9

The Ethics Program in the Department of Philosophy and Religion is pleased to present its 5th Annual Ethics Lecture: Let Them Die?: Restoring the Social in Responsibility. The lecturer will be Dr. Frederick Glennon, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York. He will speak on Wednesday, April 9th, at 7:00 pm in SB 170.

In his 1964 state of the Union address, President Lyndon Johnson launched an “unconditional war on poverty,” which signified a renewed commitment to our collective social responsibility for one another, especially the poor and working class. In 2012, Tea Party advocates yelled out “let him die” in response to a question posed to Ron Paul about what to do with an injured person who chooses not to buy health insurance. Why this ethical shift? This lecture will identify some answers to this question and will explore the moral frameworks any return to a more expansive understanding of our communal obligations to one another would entail in the current social and political climate.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Dianne Oliver, Director of the Ethics program, at do9@evansville.edu. More information about the Ethics program can be found at ethics.evansville.edu.

Athletics

* Aces Take Cardinals to Extra Innings

The University of Evansville Purple Aces softball team traveled to Louisville, Ky. this evening to take on the Cardinals in a mid-week contest and in a game that went extra innings, the Aces fell to Louisville, 4-3.

Junior Megan Gurski started in the circle for the Aces and the transfer from Saskatchewan kept the Cardinals scoreless for the first two innings.

After a scoreless top of the third for UE, Louisville got on the board first with an RBI ground-out by junior Brittany Duncan.

Gurski and Louisville pitcher Rachel Le Coq, would keep both offenses off the board in the fourth and fifth innings and in the top of the sixth, the Cardinals struck again on a two run RBI single by senior Taner Fowler.

After the two run RBI single by the Cardinals, Taylor Perry came into the game for Gurski and the senior kept the home team off the board. Gurski finished the day throwing 5.1 innings, striking out three and allowing three runs.

Heading into the seventh with a 3-0 deficit, the Purple Aces would not back down. With two runners on the bases and two outs on the board, junior Kayla Fortner came to the plate and hit a monster two run RBI double to center field that cut the Cardinals lead down to 3-2. Freshman Susan Norris stepped to the plate for Evansville and the third baseman hit another double to drive in Fortner and tie the game at three apiece.

Perry kept Louisville scoreless in the bottom of the seventh and this mid-week match up would see extra innings. Perry finished her day in the circle, striking out one and allowing no runs and no hits in 1.2 innings.

The Aces threatened to score in the top of the eighth inning, but were unable to drive in a run and this is where the Cardinals took advantage.

Freshman Briana Combs entered the circle for Perry in the eighth and the freshman would give up a crucial single to freshman Tiarra Sanabria that drove in the game winning run in the bottom of the eighth.

Up next for Evansville is a trip to Murray, Ky. on Thursday, April 10 to take on the Murray State Racers in a mid-week doubleheader starting at 3:00 p.m.
