Give me a break!
I am dumbfounded by this newspaper's lack of a student voice. The notion that a rock on the side of I-25 will strengthen the city-university bond is ludicrous. CSU may be the largest employer in town, but that is far from saying we have a great relationship.
After riots, alcohol-related deaths and the housing issues, I am appalled to hear the city manager claim he is proud of CSU. The claim that the three-unrelated law is not a direct attack on students is a lie because any reason to support the ordinance is to organize the community in response to the charges and grievances levied against drunk and disorderly students. While there certainly are some objectionable student actions, splitting up residences will do nothing. Neither the number of students nor the propensity to drink and party will change if this battle is lost. I do believe and I do have faith that CSU can have an awesome relationship with the city, but only if this three-unrelated law is dropped and we all understand our commitments as Fort Collins community members.
I can stand up and say I'm proud to be a RAM, but putting up a rock doesn't give the city manager that right.
