    Freshman Finding Plenty To Do On Campus, Sober

    Guest CommentaryI want to start this article off by saying I have no problem with anyone who drinks responsibly on this campus. In fact, most of my friends do go out every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night to drink and have a good time. As long as it’s safe and responsible, I have no problem with it. But what I do have a problem with are two comments made by Jenn DiPirro ’12 and Andy Kowal ’10 in last week’s article “Does PC have a Drinking Problem?”

    Tangents & Tirades

    Finish Your Vegetables! In a country where almost 49 million lack consistent access to adequate food, it is inexcusable that 40 percent of all food produced is thrown out. To wash this down, one-quarter of all freshwater consumption is associated with food waste. Friends, feel very free to ignore my militant vegetarianism, my illogical tears when you hold a plastic water bottle in your hand, or my not stepping on the same ground your leather shoes have just stepped on. I beg you, however, do not ignore my glaring, with the intensity of a thousand solar-powered flashlights, when you wastefully throw out Ray Dining Hall products. I do not care how bad it tastes, I do not care that you were mistaken in picking it. No, I will not ship it to the hungry myself. No, you may not watch television until you finish it. You will sit at the dinner table and eat every last piece or, I swear to God, I will tell your father and trust me: I’m the nice one.—Jayo Miko Macasaquit ’11
