All this over half a breast?

I need to throw my two cents in the pot before I go crazy from reading one too many letters to the editor involving a half-naked breast. When I saw the CPSalsa poster, I thought it was a fire woman…

Newsflash: Truth exists!

I am continually exasperated with the fuzzy thinking that passes as profound erudition in the Mustang Daily. But when interim provost Robert C. Detweiler is quoted in the October 12 article “First Constitution Day Coming” as saying, “I don’t have…

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…

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…

Alex Spanos, I want an answer

So, this is great. As I am watching Monday Night Football, John Madden (esteemed Cal Poly alumnus) and Al Michaels have a “special” guest, our Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. I more than understand the politics that must go on in order…

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…

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…

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…
