very well written Dr. Simmons. I agree with you completely as I lost my aunt last year to breast cancer.

Let me clarify my post:
Where is 2008 and 2009 FATALITY DATA!
« srd275 wrote on Friday, Jan 28 at 10:41 AM »
What is really interesting about Montgomery "safety" claims is WHAT THEY LEFT OUT!
Where are the CONTROL SITES. These are NON camera sites to compare to RLC sites. MISSING!
How many of thoese traffic fatalities are RLV REALATED! And of that how many had DUI, fleeing police, not paying attention, medical mechanical stuff a RLC WILL NOT STOP!
In fact Las Cruces NM attempted to take false "credit" for RLV death that WAS DUI RELATED! http://blog.motorists.org/las-cruces-manipulates-ticket-camera-numbers/
Why no mention of 2008 and 2009 DATA?????? IN fact why we are at it where is 2006 and 2005!
Where is the traffic flow. Many motorists try to avoid these intersections!
YOU NEED TO ASK FOLKS. RLC ARE NOT A SAFETY DEVICE, THEY ARE A REVENUE DEVICE! Most of what they write are techincal FOULS (non dangerous right turns on red, split second mistakes, and stopping over the stop line), not safety ones!
Cities and POLICE have BEEN BUSTED LYING IN 2010.
Police claims of safety in LA were found to be MISLEADING by the AUDITOR! http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/32/3277.asp
Chicago, BUSTED LYING on their safety claims.. http://www.myfoxchicago.com/dpp/news/metro/red-light-cameras-chicago-crashes-accidents-20100607

The first class of Tigerettes were selected in the spring of 1977. Mrs. Betty Barfield was our sponsor. Our first official football season was 1977. Then, we only had to meet on Thursday afternoons and hosted on Saturdays. Today it is so different, and so time consuming---they have so much more responsibility!
They are the Auburn Spirit!!!!

So you sit in the concourse all day and watch people right? This "article" sounds like an emotional rant from a girl who got dropped the 1st day of rush and mommy and daddy couldnt do anything about it. I for one do not wear the nike shorts trend but i definitely dont condemn those who do! And the leggings thing, why do you care if someone is wearing leggings and a long shirt over in 30 degree weather? Unless you're going to go all humanitarian on the person and attempt to cover them up and warm them, shut the duck up because you could care less who's cold. It doesn't bother me what the girls in sororities wear nor does it bother anyone else I'm sure either. How small of you to associate anorexia with the greek system. Have you not seen all the sorority girls in big blue bagel, mellow mushroom, etc...?! Those bitches eat! The big shirts dont conceal weapons, if someone wanted to cary a gun I'm pretty sure they don't need an xxl tee to do so. And btw, we all know who you were attempting to single out with that part of the article....
So, I will wear whatever the hell I want on campus, and if I EVER see you wearing something I don't like, I'll be sure to not only tell you but write an article about it, claim youre anorexic, and maybe even call the news station because I'm sure youre face in person is something we'd all like to "un-see"

HAHAHA.... so tell me again who died and made you fashion queen? Because you have NO right to tell ME what I am supposed to wear, and on TOP of that, WASTE your days/nights publishing a RIDICULOUS article about it just to get this type of feedback. Anyways, I feel sorry for you that you sit and ridicule people on the types of clothes they wear, but good luck in life.. looks like it'll be pretty shitty here at Auburn from now on.

"In the five minutes it takes you to walk across the pavement, numerous people’s poor clothing choices assault your eyes."
In my opinion, this is the only sentence in this article that Miss Tsaltas is right about. Between the baggy pants, cargo shorts, affliction tees with oversized rhinestones and many other poor choices walking around campus it is no wonder that we (greeks) wear our sunglasses all the time!
Now now, here is the difference: we aren't writing silly little articles in the Plainsman about how much we dislike your clothing choices. I am sure you are sitting in front of your computer LOVING all the comments that are being made; you are thinking that your article is getting read and so your article is effective and is going to take you places. Well congrats! As someone said before you have just made yourself "that" girl, maybe you shouldn't have written such an attack on the greek system your freshman year. Good luck in the future, I'm sure your parents are proud that they taught you how to be a rude little girl.
Maybe you should see a therapist to figure out why you are so bitter.

Another Greek bash article, surprise. You should at least get smart and do like a girl did a few years ago and bash on block seating. The response she got was free block seating and tailgating with a fraternity. Just be glad this isn't Bama, you mess with the Greeks there, the Greeks come after you.

HAHAHAHAHA I think this is incredibly funny- don't get me wrong- I love leggings, nike shorts, and huge men's tshirts :) INCLUDING but not limited to Tom's shoes and UGG BOOTS (oh no she didn't).... I did the sorority thing for 2 1/2 years then dropped out but I still wore this stuff- and alot of girls and boys who don't do the greek thing wear this stuff. This girl is gonna be hated on forever (or at least until she graduates) but you've gotta admit... there aren't many original people walking on the concourse since everybody wears the same thing all the time- if I had not graduated already I might have tried wearing something different but alas- here I am in Orlando Florida where if you get caught not wearing graphic surfer T's, huge sunglasses, and dresses/long dress like shirts with leggings underneath including little flat shoes then you will be made fun of. I cannot tell you how many comments I have gotten on my Ugg boots, my Vera Bradley purses/bags, and my Northface jacket. They are not welcomed here. So, needless to say- every city has a stereotype... it just depends on if you follow the trend or not- and I say do whatever you want :) but I do think this article is funny- offensive... but funny none the less. All in good fun!
