It is a sad when this type of questioning is answered with a barrage of personal attacks and name calling, based on misinformation, by Bryant Yang, the chief of staff in the Student Advocate Office. Wouldn't it have been more beneficial to address my concerns about the Student Advocate Office than slam me without facts ("Student Advocate Protects Students Equally," Sept. 13)?
