Weekly Poll
How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

You've found a job opportunity

San Luis Obispo

By Forrestt Williams

Dear Ana Korgan, I am deeply saddened to hear about your current predicament (“When dreams won’t come,” Nov. 22). Living rent free with your parents while working an internship in a privileged class town can be rough. I feel your pain.

While I haven’t lived with my parents since 18, I still can totally relate. Some of my odd and part-time jobs do not “existentially fulfill” me either. They do, however, allow me to purchase “well-crafted lattes.”

And while using the phrase “I’m just too smart for this shit” might sound like the definition of pretentious, I agree that arguing against blatant pompousness can be successful by simply pointing to your work ethic and job history.

Playing the role of martyr suits you well; maybe you’ll find a career in that?
