Student Advocate Protects Students Equally
I am extremely disturbed and saddened by Daniel Frankenstein's letter to the editor regarding the ASUC Student Advocate Office ("Letters to the Editor: Unequal Protection," Sept.10).

Students of all nationalities and religions were united, as the American flag represents not just one nation, but all nations coming together as one. We all mourned the loss of all those innocents taken from us last year.
