You've Got SA Mail

The Student Association's quest to increase direct interaction with its constituents may soon take them into thousands of undergraduate in-boxes.SA e-board members approached university administrators at the beginning of the semester in hopes of creating an undergraduate listserv, which would allow them to inform students of major SA events, such as the re-scheduled Fallfest, through the students' university e-mail addresses.

SA Listserv

Bulletin boards riddled with staples and shreds of short-lived fliers are certainly not the most efficient means of communicating with the student population.

Letter To The Editor

In Monday's feedback, Fabio Albertin criticized The Spectrum for printing an opinion piece that he considered "biased and discriminating religious propaganda." I am glad that Albertin brought up the topic of discrimination, because the sort of censorship that he supports seems discriminatory on the grounds of both freedom of speech and freedom of religion.A student publication at a state school cannot and should not practice content-based viewpoint discrimination.

The Writing On the Wall

"Peace is Passive"Walking from the bus to the Student Union to Clemens Hall, the statement struck me as the most ridiculous of last week's countless sidewalk scribblings.Others included "Bombs Don't Discriminate," "Nothing kills innocent people like war," and perhaps the most humorous, "Force George to read a book for every bomb."The "Peace is Passive" comment seems ridiculous to me because I have been wondering what exactly it means for days now.
