Do we need a college in Lodi? We need common sense, not a college campus

    Exactly why would we select those colleges except to prove your point, Steve. Why not be a little more realistic and look at Delta, Sac State and City as well as Turkey Tech? Because they don't serve your point. If you look at a period in college life, you probably really like, why not take a look at the curriculum at UC Berkeley in the 60s. There weren't any courses being taught about student sit ins or language to use on campus. Bomb building for the SDS? If you object to the money being spend, how about a cogent well reasoned argument?

    Mr. Steve Hanson, your common sense editorial has shown us the negatives of such an endeavor, but your arguments won’t change the fact bureaucrats will spend millions of dollars on such projects.
    Mr. Huyett’s, common sense editorial envisions many benefits from millions of dollars the bureaucrats will spend somewhere! He is advocating why not spend these dollars here in the city of Lodi, and enjoy all the benefits of such an endeavor!

    That's so true. Maybe adding a mandatory class on "credit" to the high school curriculum might help us be a little more responsible w/ our own debt leading compulsive spending habits ourselves.
