Let's see, in the headline:
First Student in Over Two Decades Runs for Berkeley City Council
In the article:
The last student to run for council was Andy Katz, now an alumnus, who lost a bid to Wozniak in 2002.

I imagine what the headliner was trying to say was that if Jason Overman won, he'd be the first student City Council dude in over two decades. But the Daily Cal simply missed. Oh, well. Wouldn't be the first time.

Or maybe Jason Overman is the first student in over two decades. The rest of us aren't really students, nor has anyone been one since 1984.

Unfortunately, the picture isn't online yet. We'll play a game to see who can point out what's wrong with it first. And I'll give you a hint: This isn't the first time this error has been made, and it's not even the first time the error was made in stories covering this particular topic.

I suspect Jason isn't in the race to represent 'students' so much as to simply add another far-left member to the council. All this talk of students not having their voices heard doesn't move me. I own property in district 8 (as does Wozniak) and am not looking forward to having some child with no stake in Berkeley as my councilmember.
