Pro-alcohol views don’t belong in college papers

Editor:

I usually enjoy reading the articles from The Chronicle, however, my opinion has quickly changed due to the allowance of Brian Trick’s column (“Drinking at U games not a serious problem,” Dec. 2) being printed.

Although it is not directly said, the author advocates drinking by saying people who do it are better off and happier. Obviously, the author failed to mention the negative effects of drinking, especially at a sporting event. How are people happier when they don’t remember the game from the night before, or when they drink and drive? How can throwing food, yelling profanities or promoting impaired thinking due to drinking be advocated? I do not have any problems with anybody who decides to drink, but how does a college newspaper allow for the thought of drinking being good when most college students are under the legal age to drink?
