Should Cal Poly sacrifice its productive agricultural land to expand its campus?

Yes, we must create the space to educate and house our growing college-age population.
I'd rather see the students stay on campus then be able to buy avocados and oranges.
Can't they just relocate the trees to another area?
So much for 'learn by doing.'

Find a peaceful solution

Thomas Stevenson - San Luis Obispo

I find it ironic that the only thing the Republican Party can agree with Obama on is a military attack on Syria. Since we’re the leader in the world, I expect our country, with all its resources and wisdom, to come up with a better solution than killing. After all, doesn’t killing to avenge killing just create more dead people?

I’m angry at both political parties in our response to Syria. Certainly, something must be done, but using weapons to force peace is an equation that has never added up. So I’m asking our leaders to show real leadership, to dig deeper, and take more time if necessary, to find a solution and response that truly reflects our country’s peaceful intent.
