In response to David MacNeal’s skating story, published on Sept.26.

I was disturbed as I read, “Skating citations anger students.” This article talks about the student’s frustrations with CSUN’s strict regulations in regards to skating. Students don’t even feel free to ride around their skateboards because they fear that they will get handcuffed or a ticket for $150. As if the humiliation of getting handcuffed at your own school is not enough, there is also money that students have to pay because they have gotten about three if not more citations. I just don’t see what the big deal is.

I am always around Manzanita Hall and I haven’t seen skaters exhibit reckless behavior. They hang out in that area but they don’t bother anyone. Skating is like riding a bike or a razor scooter. It’s a way of transportation.

In response to “Freebies fool you into signing the contract of life” by Natalie Cole, published on Sept. 27.

Countless unsuspecting CSUN students fell right into the trap set by credit card companies. They knew all they had to do in order to sign up hundreds of future debt holders was toss them a toasted turkey, cheese and tiny bag of chips. Ahh, the perfect plan.

Congratulations to the small number of you that have already learned the lesson that Ms. Cole informed us about, that nothing is free and chose to walk away. Or better yet beat them at their own game and fill out the credit card application with false information. The majority of us have already learned this life lesson that nothing is truly free. For the rest of you, give it time and you will soon find that the ones supplying all the “free” are in the long run earning much more money then they are spending.

That what it all boils downs to, they will do whatever it takes to get you in their pocket. We just need to find the way to leave their pocket having lifted a little something for ourselves.

In response to “CFA president comes to CSUN,” published on Thursday, Sept. 21.

Thank you for covering the dispute over faculty salary once again in your paper. What you are doing here is giving voice to an insult that has gone on too long.

The administration has been heaping insult after injury by first underpaying our teachers, then passing along the buck to the highest ranking administrators who have no stake in the campus community at all. Meanwhile they have been making these administrators privy to special privileges that faculty members themselves are denied.

I hope enough people read this article that it creates a rippling effect. The rippling effect that I hope for is one that will get students to unite with the teachers to petition the university and the CFA, to let them know that we the people of the community are watching and that we demand fairness above all else.
