Letters to the Editor: Theft of Conservative Publication Criticized
When I first came to UC Berkeley, I thoroughly agreed with all the "underdog" clubs supporting Palestine, minority rights, and all the other groups rooting for the "oppressed" against the "powerful." But having now experienced a campus where these groups are the powerful and seeing their treatment of the smaller groups like the Berkeley College Republicans, I can only say that I was wrong ("Copies of California Patriot Stolen; Publication Staff Allegedly Harassed," Feb. 27). It doesn't seem to matter what you believe in anymore, just the number of newspapers you can steal and opponents you can slander. Thanks Berkeley, I've learned a lot.
