Opinion

Oski Bill Simple Representation
I am writing in response to the numerous opinion pieces from alumni and students regarding my bill in favor of revamping Oski. Given the fact it has sparked an overwhelming amount of debate in The Daily Californian, I would like to relate the context in which it was written.

Editorial: Wow Wow: Mascot Should Stay As Is
Judging from the amount of letters to the editor The Daily Californian received since it was reported that the ASUC Senate voted to modify Oski the Bear, UC Berkeley alumni and students take mascot devotion seriously.

I guess Cal's reputation for academic excellence comes from the sciences, because this "rhetoric" is just plain ignorant.
