Letters to the Editor: ASUC President's Plan Derided for Latest Effort
When I voted for Wally Adeyemo for ASUC President, I thought I was voting for the lesser of two evils. I've since learned, however, that the lesser of two evils is still deleterious to our public good. Case in point: Adeyemo's One Campus program. He wants to spend thousands of dollars of student money to give a banquet for the homeless ("A Simple Plan," Feb. 25). Are the homeless students at UC Berkeley? Do we really want to encourage the homeless problem in Berkeley by having a banquet in their honor? What's the whole point of this? If I really wanted to give money to some great bum on a street corner, I'd do it myself.
