Smoke Signals Issue 5

DOWN: Associated Students of UCSD. In the wake of horrifying racial incidents at UCSD, their student government voted to suspend funding to all student media groups. UCSD needs student voices now more than ever to talk through these difficult times.


**DOWN: Elections Petitioning. **It’s that time of year again… every group you’ve never heard of is asking you to make sure you can vote for them to take away your money. Enjoy guiding all those e-mails to the trash bin.

UP: Constitutional Council. The Constitutional Council, which exists to interpret the rules that govern the ASSU, flexed its muscle for the first time in 3 years by ruling that Senator Daniel Limón can no longer serve in the ASSU.  We wish Limón the best in his future endeavors.


SIDEWAYS: Parents’ Weekend. Parents successfully humiliated their children this weekend, resulting in one of the quietest weekends this quarter. Budget woes took the form of charging for Saturday’s student performances, and removing the post performance banquet.

DOWN: Health Care Summit. Jury is out on who is to blame, but the one thing that everyone seems to agree is that nothing was accomplished. Way to go, Washington: this is just what Americans wanted!
