'Coastie Song' stirs up Wisconsin campus Some worry lyrics show anti-Semitism MADISON, Wis. (AP) When two students recorded their first, rap song together, they wanted to have fun with a cultural icon unique to the University of the coastie. The term is widely used here The Coastie Song: www. myspace.com coastiesong University of www.wisc. edu to describe out-of-state students . who tend to wear certain clothes, come from wealthier families and live in more expensive private dormitories. They are teased by "sconnies," the Wisconsin kids who make up a majority of the student body. The "Coastie Song," featuring students Quincy Harrison and Cliff Grefe rapping about the coastie girls wearing tights, Ugg boots and North Face jackets, quickly became an Internet hit this fall. Tens of thousands of people heard the song on MySpace and saw the video on YouTube, and it's even available on iTunes. While the song has launched their music career, it's done a great deal more on the 42,000-student campus. It's raised complaints of anti-Semitism, shed more light on a cultural divide among students and renewed complaints about a long-standing housing policy. "They say it's just a funny song, but obviously it's come to be much more than that," wrrv 5 - rr W t - A sunken red granite tower, part of Cleopatra's palace complex, is loaded onto a truck after being extracted from the Mediterranean Sea off the archaeological eastern harbor of Alexandria, Egypt. Pylon lift Monument part of Cleopatra's palace complex ALEXANDRIA, Egypt (AP) Archaeologists last week hoisted a 9-ton temple pylon from the waters of the Mediterranean that was part of the palace complex of the fabled Cleopatra before it became submerged for centuries in the harbor of Alexandria. The pylon, which once stood at the entrance to a temple of Isis, is to be the centerpiece of an ambitious underwater museum planned by Egypt to showcase the sunken city, believed to have been toppled into the sea by earthquakes in the 4th century. Divers and underwater archaeologists used a giant crane and ropes to lift the 9-ton, 7.4-foot-tall pylon, covered with muck and seaweed, out of the murky waters. It was deposited ashore as Egypt's top archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, and other officials watched. The pylon was part of a sprawling palace from which the Ptolemaic dynasty ruled Egypt and where first century B.C. Queen Cleopatra wooed the Roman general Marc Antony before they committed suicide after their defeat by Augustus Caesar. The temple dedicated to Isis, a pharaonic goddess of fertility and magic, is at least 2,050 years old, but archaeologists believe it's likely much older. The pylon was cut from a single slab of red granite, quarried in Aswan, some 700 miles to the south, officials said. "The cult of Isis was so powerful, it's no wonder said Michelle Langer, a sophomore from Milwaukee. Some Jewish students object to the song's references to a "Jewish American Princess" and "My East Coast Jewish honey" who wastes her father's money. Greg Stein-berger, executive director of Hillel at UW-Madison, a Jewish group, said it was unseemly for Harrison and Grefe to profit from a song "made to purposely make fun of and hurt their neighbors." Harrison and Grefe, known on campus as Quincy and Beef, say the song was not meant to insult Jews. Harrison said in the song he is flirting with a good-looking coastie whom he wants to get to know better. "If anything, it's complimentary," said the 21-year-old from Bloomington, Ind. Perla Bernstein, a 21-year-old senior from New York City, said the song is funny, but she worries the term "coastie" has morphed from a good-natured jab to an anti-Semitic slur. "There's so much xenophobia on campus that it's ridiculous," she said. "And it goes both ways." Sophie Bressler, an 18-year-old freshman from Chap-paqua, N.Y., said students from Wisconsin unfairly believe she and other out-of-state students are "spoiled and sheltered." She said some of her friends have been heckled for wearing what's considered coastie garb. As for the song, she said: "I think it's funny, but people get offended by it." Many blame a state law for fueling the divide by giving preference to Wisconsin residents for a limited number of university dorm rooms. That t , f -v,rJT"l ftp X i -sj ed from underwater city Cleopatra chose to make her living quarters next to the temple," said coastal geoar-chaeologist Jean-Daniel Stanley of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. Egyptian authorities hope that eventually the pylon will become a part of the underwater museum, an ambitious attempt to draw tourists to the country's northern coast, often overshadowed by the grand pharaonic temples of Luxor in the south, the Giza pyramids outside Cairo and the beaches of the Red Sea. They are hoping the allure of Alexandria, founded in 331 B.C. by Alexander the Great, also can be a draw. Cleopatra's palace and other buildings and monuments now lie strewn on the seabed in the harbor of Alexandria, the second largest city of Egypt. Since 1994, archaeologists have been exploring the ruins, one of the richest underwater excavations in the Mediterranean, with some 6,000 artifacts. Another 20,000 objects are scattered off other parts of Alexandria's coast, said Ibrahim Darwish, head of the city's underwater archaeology department. In recent years, excavators have discovered dozens of sphinxes in the harbor, along with pieces of what is believed to be the Alexandria Lighthouse, or Pharos, which was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The pylon is the first major artifact extracted from the harbor since 2002, when authorities banned further removal of major artifacts from the sea for fear it would damage them. "The tower is unique among Alexandria's antiquities. We believe it was part of forces other students to stay in private residence halls, where they don't interact with their Wisconsin counterparts. Other out-of-state students ' say they choose to live with their own in private residence halls that tend to have more amenities and cost more than the public dorms.

M - : Associated Press the complex surrounding Cleopatra's palace," Hawass said, as the crane gently placed the pylon on the harbor bank. "This is an important part of Alexandria's history and it brings us closer to knowing more about the ancient city." Hawass already has launched another high-pro- file dig connected to Cleopatra. In April, he said he hopes to find the long-lost tomb of Antony and Cleopatra, and that he believes it may be inside a temple of Osiris about 30 miles west of Alexandria. The pylon extracted was discovered by a Greek expedition in 1998. Retrieving it was a laborious process: For weeks, divers cleaned it of mud and scum, then they dragged it across the sea floor for three days to bring it closer to the harbor's edge for extraction. A truck stood by to ferry the pylon to a freshwater tank, where it will lie for six months until all the salt, which acts as a preservative underwater but damages it once exposed, is dissolved. Still in its planning stages, the underwater museum would allow visitors to walk through underwater tunnels for close-up views of sunken artifacts, and it may even include a submarine on rails. A collaboration between Egypt and UNESCO, the museum would cost at least $140 million, said Darwish. The above-water section would feature sail-shaped structures that would complement the architecture of the harbor and have the city's corniche seabank in the backdrop, with the splendid Alexandria Library on the other end of the bay, Darwish said.
