EDITORIAL: Happy holidays?

The holidays should be the time of year when students and faculty alike should be gleeful and glad for a year that is about to come to an end. But with so many depressing events revolving around students, such as cut class funding, the Associated Student Government debacles, lack of H1N1 vaccinations on campus, and limited university transfers, it’s almost impossible to feel or express holiday joy. But even though there may be many negative things floating around, people should realize that this time can be characterized by what Charles Dickens said in his novel “A Tale of Two Cities,” “It was the best of times and the worst of times.”

So there’s always something positive along side the negatives, wrapped together in a neat little package.

Sure, cut classes make it tougher for students who want to finish their general education and transfer. And the fee hikes in the CSU and UC system don’t make that any easier. But what we often forget is that, though our fees were raised from $20 to $26 per unit, compared to community colleges in other states, where fees can get as high as $300 per unit, we’re still doing pretty well. Students are still coming to school and persevering in trying to finish their academic goals.

The little miracle berry viagra store in canada go to this pharmacy shop from the Amazon has gotten a lot of attention the last few years. Lifestyle can also cialis canadian prices influence men in their sexual life. Globally, the ancient medicinal procedures and concoctions are administered, studied and appreciated, to provide wondrous results. buying cialis online We know they work, we additionally know they have an exceptionally solid safety profile in light of the advantages they offer in terms of quality of life. viagra samples On our own campus, aside from the fee increases and class cuts, we had an associated student government that failed to follow procedures and acted like to traveling circus —disorganized and chaotic. Our student president failed to put student interests above his own, yet he is still here. The student population voted him out in a recall election (that generated more participation than the regular election) that was nullified because ASG failed to follow protocol. And though it was a complicated story to cover, it gave those of us on the staff of the paper a chance to practice investigative journalism.

And sports weren’t exactly a pep rally this semester. The women’s soccer team was terrible in conference showings, and the Panthers’ football team did not fare too well, with a record of 6 and 5, but on the flipside, the City College women’s volleyball team and female golf team are state champions.

So be merry and enjoy what we have or lost because we have to admit, these problems add a bit of excitement to our lives and gives us something to discuss at the holiday dinner table.
