Pro-peace events deserve more prominent coverage
I am concerned with the unbalanced coverage of campus events pertaining to the Middle East. This weekend's gathering of nearly 1,500 people who rallied for peace deserved a front-page photo. Many students and professors joined other members of the community to show their frustration with the government's call to war.
A student, Sheila Bapat of the Progressive Alliance, ran the portion of the rally at De Anza Park. Instead of the rally, Monday's front page showed a couple of guys jumping on a Slip-N-Slide toy ÷ a bit less important than a peace rally in my opinion.
