We just read the Sunday, Aug. 25, Enterprise, as we always do, and were disturbed to read the columns that continue the ongoing criticism of Aggie football (Bob Dunning) and the disparagement of students coming to Davis (Debra DeAngelo).
First of all, who cares if Dunning can’t bring his Subway sandwich into the stadium? The experience of Aggie football transcends his sandwich but his trivial complaints color and dominate his criticism of Aggie football, which has no basis.
But, DeAngelo is the worst. She lives in Winters — not Davis — and decries the transgressions of students that arrive in Davis every year.
We remind her, it is the annual influx of students that keep Davis such a vibrant and lively community – even if they do ride their bikes down Fifth Street or text their parents while sitting at the Fuji sushi bar. Who cares? They make Davis what Davis is and why we all choose to live here.
The culture and quality of life in Davis is deep-seeded in the university and its students. The university relationship with the community should be celebrated, not denigrated.
Enterprise, get some new columnists who are not so grumpy.
