Freestyle Litter Club

A Waste of InkTo the Editor:I would like to put my two cents into the proverbial money bin. What exactly was the purpose of the article about the “Freestyle Litter Club”? I honestly believe it to be one of the most ridiculous and wasteful articles I have read from this newspaper to date. To have a club founded on the principle of students dumping garbage on Redstone Green so as to oust out those hula-hoop swirling hippies is just flat out stupid. I find it pathetic that a person even took the time to write an article on such a topic. They wasted their precious time, their precious energy and most of all they wasted some of the UVM ink and newspaper supply. Now, my main issue is why did the author of the article feel the need to be so passive aggressive and write the article. If they want these hippies to hula-hoop elsewhere (so as not to “mar” their view), then why didn’t he/she just ask them to move? I am sure that these hula hoopers would not have been confrontational in any way shape or form. In fact, I bet they would have complied and moved to another location. But to claim existence to a club created for the sole reason to chuck garbage around campus for the sake of it is absolutely ludicrous. Article writer out there-learn to stand up for your own thoughts, act on them and don’t write silly articles hinting at the things that put thorns in your side.Emily Swint (Kara Spangler English 1)
