To the editor,

You seem to be missing the point in your comments about the desire for students to know what to expect in their courses at the UA. You also seem to be applying a double standard to the principal of consumer rights.

It is not an issue of "warnings" but one of being able to select courses as one wishes. I'm sure that you advocate "truth in lending," "truth in packaging" and consumer rights in general, don't you? Well, if we are paying tuition for classes, don't we have the right to know the course content?
