Thank you for providing the CSU community with the thought-provoking column written by Ryan Chapman that appeared in Wednesday's Collegian. Wow! What a nugget of perspective.
Maybe I can write my own opinion column for the Collegian; I do have abundant stories about things not happening according to plan, but still having a great time – much like the topic of Chapman's column today. Was this story really worthy of publishing?
Congress debating the energy bill, the Colorado Eagles winning game one of the President's Cup last night, the allegations against Tom Delay, Joey Porter donating $200,000 to the CSU football team – all current issues that seem to provide much more substance to the campus. If the Collegian is to really be a first-rate college newspaper, I think its columnists need to challenge the student body on today's issues, not anecdotal stories.
