I'm responding to Thursday's letter "No progress with Gator." Ben Cavataro is right: The Gator Party isn't perfect. Like many other organizations around campus it has made a fatal blunder: It let in human beings. People try their best and fail. They exert themselves and come up short. They do the best they can and it still isn't enough. But that's life.
That didn't take long. Call me cynical, but I'm not surprised the Alligator editorial board has started holding Greeks to a separate standard from other students just a week into the fall semester. Underage drinking is illegal. So is smoking pot. But is what happened at Pi Lambda Phi Fraternity any different from what probably happened at dozens of Gainesville apartments that same night?
