Florida Alligator

Alligator is a forum for influence

First, it is hard for me to be upset because you have always surprised me and printed my opinions - all of which have focused on the misuse of alcohol by college students at UF. You can be the "cool big brother," and I'll be the "I'm-telling-on-you-big sister." I want to emphasize how extremely thankful I am because the Alligator truly is a stage where I could potentially positively influence even just one student who reads my opinion to think twice before drinking irresponsibly. I understand that you were trying to write fairly, but please, please keep in mind that underage drinkers are the only people who can be underage drunk drivers, and they make up a large portion of alcohol-related fatalities in this state every year.

Gadhafi column misguided

I would like to thank the Alligator as well as the authors of "Obama is No Better Than Che Guevara" for providing one of the best "fake news" articles this side of the Onion. Their send-up of the intellectual inconsistency and naïveté of the extreme left was nothing short of sidesplitting. I mean, how could anyone read an article defending mass-murdering tyrant Muammar Gadhafi as a leftist hero and not indulge in a hearty chuckle?

Dining halls urged to honor Meatless Mondays

I imagine Gator Dining officials are all very excited about UF's place in the final round in this year's ranking of the most vegan-friendly colleges in the nation. If only those University of California Santa Cruz hippies would go away and let us win. Even if we lose, second place is pretty darn good, so congratulations.
