The staff falls into the predictable and easily taken path of rehashing old gripes and embarking on bashing the Undergraduate Council. But as the staff and LBJ before it said, this "government" is "the only thing we got." If the staff truly wishes to influence future council decisions, opinions should be cocouncilhed in relevant terms that stick to the issues at hand.
Sure the council is filled with sleazy power politics and the staff is totally on target in condemning Beys' move for self-profit. It's ridiculous that council members failed to put a stop to such corruption until finance committee chair Rico Reyes '93 was stopped in his tracks on his way to a Texas barbecue at the council's expense.
But that's all we need to say. If the staff simply sticks to the issues, then the council can stop wasting its time writing angry letters to the editor and start trying to set up some semblance of student government.
