University must address the transportation problem

It is 7:30 a.m. on Monday when my front door swings open and I am submerged into another foggy morning. I wrestle my bike out the door and off the porch. Too early to be awake and too cold to…

You're going after the wrong crowd

You’re going after the wrong crowd Finally, someone seems to share my opinion of the rape displays that have been popping up around campus for the two years (going on three) that I’ve been here. Don’t get me wrong, I…

Ignorance is not bliss

Maybe hiding international news from Americans is part of President Bush’s secret agenda to bolster his decreasing popularity ratings. A massive earthquake has devastated the Kashmir region in Pakistan/India, and no one seems to know or care about it. The…

Rancer's Recipes

Emily Rancer While I do have a passion for copy editing the Mustang Daily, I also love to cook. In fact, I cook for 100 people at least once a month for Hillel’s Shabbat dinners (that’s the Jewish club at…

Alex Spanos, I want an answer

Censorship and the First Amendment

With heat rising from the recent controversy of the spicy posters put up by the Cal Poly Salsa Club, censorship has once again forced itself into the limelight. The huge uproar thus far stands on the side against censoring the…

Posters should not be up on public school grounds

Since when do the wants of the many outweigh the rights of the few? I belong to the “very small minority” who think the Cal Poly Salsa posters are inappropriate and don’t belong on campus. Taking down the posters does…

Administration must stop acts of ignorance

I have always hated the popular phrase “ignorance is bliss.” Fall quarter has almost been in session for four weeks and already the administration has committed acts that deprive students of truth and knowledge on campus. The removal of the…

Some decency please

Much discussion seems to be occurring around campus concerning the censorship of the Salsa ads. Much of it seems to be focused on whether or not this censorship would be limiting the Salsa club’s right to free speech. In my…
