In response to “Great ideas, not popularity, should guide votes in ASUA election season” (by Dan Desrochers, Jan. 14):
ASUA will always be a popularity contest full of friends who use it as a resume bullet point while not getting real tangible work done. It’s beyond saving.
If only 10% of students vote, ASUA is illegitimate. Dig in your archives and reprint Connor Mendenhall’s article from a few years back about abolishing the ASUA.
In response to “Healthy eating options do exist on and near campus” (by Alyssa Demember, Jan. 10):
Great article! I did not know these healthy options were available. Will definitely consider eating there more!
I agree with you, Pasco offers healthy delicious stuff. One thing is to be taken into consideration, though: they use a lot of olive oil, which despite being healthy, has enormous number of calories.
In response to “Real journalism has no pause buttons, neither should student media” (by Kristina Bui, Jan 15):
Great article, Kristina. This really shows how resilient student journalists are in the face of administrators who want to keep them silent. I am thankful the Wildcat is free from these chains, and I hope these other papers will continue to uphold student journalists’ tradition of independence in reporting.
-Savannah Jual, former Wildcat journalist
In response to “Downtown Tucson: dangerous money pit for all involved” (by Stephanie Zawada, Jan. 14)
This was a terrible article. The Downtown described in this article may have been true 15 years ago, but for those of us who visit Downtown often, it’s a vibrant, interesting, welcoming, and fun place to go to.
