Letter to the Editor

By Mindy Layton, Sophomore, German

Dear Editor:

I am quite dismayed that organizers would knowingly leave 1,500 students at Friday night?s Homecoming dance, after hours of dancing, to thirst for water.

The closest thing was fish water. At certain times the drinking fountain lines were 10 minutes long.

If one can organize distilled water for gold fish in cool bowls, how hard would it be to organize cups with a water bowl for 800 prepaid tickets?

Crackers and juice are offered to kindergartners, but why aren’t they offered to paying patrons?

If I attend a stomp, I don’t expect a punch bowl or cookies. But at a formal dance, I would expect a little more than everyday, serve-it-yourself water fountains.
