Me too.

I freakin' hate this issue, and I'm tired of the CAN/Ron Paul freaks owning the editorial page.

If those claiming to be alumni contributors want to give up their skyboxes, then so be it. I understand that their is a rather long waiting list of folks who would be more than happy to take their place.

Yeah, we don't need their money. Even though Florida, Georgia, and ... everybody else has bigger athletic budgets than us.

I'm sure I'm ignorant on this, but how does the student senate get to decide who the university does business with. If that's the case, shouldn't the alumni association get a say? It's our university, too.

I think they have the misguided notion that what ASB does actually has relevance in the real world...and it doesn't.

The ASB is mostly kids trying to beef up their resume or convince themselves that they're more important than they actually are.

The ASB is the biggest joke I have ever come across in my life.

So is the idea of a Palestinian state somehow being able to live side by side next to Israel.

But I'm being branded as a racist and "jewish supremacist" (how funny) for believing that.

WTF happened to this campus?

Nothing has happened to the campus. The loudest do not always have the majority. Remember that, no matter what situation you are in.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA So true!

The ASB ticked me off while I was in school because they took the stance that if it didn't benefit the Greeks then they weren't going to consider it. There are tons of us non-Greeks who were part of the student population, but "our" ASB didn't recognize us. And it was pointless to try to vote in a non-Greek.

So most of us who did not participate in the Greek system also did not participate in ASB in any form, including vote in the elections.

BTW, that is not a blast on the Greek system at all as I think it can be a good thing. I don't think it's for everyone, but that's a discussion for another place and another time. It just ticked me off that the ASB didn't care for students outside the system.

As a non-greek, I would definitely say that it is the opposite now.

Artair even campaigned on more greek regulation.

Brandon Irvine should never be taken seriously. The Dm hates when he writes about this crap.

Oh wow. You can see how much I've followed ASB. I work on campus and I didn't realize that.

I did get to sit in a meeting with Rebeca Bertrand (sp) back when she was president and I must say I was VERY impressed. She was very respectful to the decision makers and that allowed her to get some things done on campus.
