Letters to the editor:

Dear Editor,

One week before Spring Break, one of the most celebrated drunk-fests for high-school and college students, our respectable school newspaper provides us with a “40 oz. 101: Get schooled”. I think that a description or two about how a life was ruined due to a Girls Gone Wild video of a drunken girl being videotaped or an alcoholics story about being in jail due to a drunk driving accident would have been more appropriate. What kind of message is that sending? Reports show that full time college students are more likely to report binge and heavy drinking. Is that what we are supporting? My English 102 class is highly outraged but you may attempt to make it by having Alcohol Horror Stories in the next issue!Thanks,

The Last Under-Age Non-Drinking Student
