Student Government Debate 2 on video

Generally I do not have much interest in student government and have never endorsed anyone. At the student government debate there was a small turnout and no students asked a question when asked. When I cover an election or have a reporter that does not know the issues we ask each candidate the best question to ask their opponent and a follow up. A very negative e-mail was sent around about the presidential student government candidates in the election and there could be one against another candidate.  Reporters are not allowed to use pseudo names and put their name on it like a man or women. Whoever did it should put their name on it and not hide.  Unanimous sources are cowards. As editor I was the complaint window and like politicians you have to get a thick skin. Someone cursed me out and at the end realized they meant another editor. A little exaggeration was I and father practically had death threats and kept coming. I recently have had 2 of my e-mails hacked into that I made complaints pretty high. If someone knows you can be provoked on command they will always do it and you will act on emotion.  You learn to let it go in one ear and out the other.  Politics gets dirty. The Chicago Mayor Blagojevich thrown out of office went on every talk show and I don’t know how he was unflustered defending his position which was proven illegal. If anyone knows who did it or got several of these please report them and send them to me. In sports Kevin Johnson of the basketball Celtics knew how to get under Mellos’ skin and throw him off his game. Mello was criticized for falling for it. If you have a sensitive side you can be led into any trap. Consider what Jackie Robinson went through.
