More coffee wars!
Uh oh. Someone forgot to muzzle Oren Gabriel.
"As the number of student groups continues to rise, the ability of the ASUC to fund these groups is limited," he said.Aww, come on, Daily Cal. Have some fun. Try this:
"As the number of student groups continues to rise, the ability of the ASUC to fund these groups is limited," he said, less than two months after trying to spend ASUC funds to cover his personal legal costs.Or maybe this:
"As the number of student groups continues to rise, the ability of the ASUC to fund these groups is limited," he said, after last year supporting increasing the funding for ASUC Executives at the expense of student groups.Oh, well. Maybe we should letter-to-the-editor it.
[Coffee Spot owner Haitham Alloum] said the current situation is similar to an effort in the late 1990s to replace smaller businesses, but the students and businesses petitioned and rallied to save the Bear's Lair.I dunno. I don't think I'm in any danger of losing the space to run my business.
"In '97 we all stood up and we were all one voice because whatever happens to my next-door neighbor can happen to me," he said.
Gabriel said that students' opinions are a top priority and that he is creating a survey to find out what types of businesses students would like to see.Oh, a survey! Does this mean that if he doesn't get a response from the majority of students, he won't act? Or is he talking out of his ass again? And why didn't he use this "survey" approach for the "PAY MY LEGAL FEES!!!" bill?
"The ASUC is the student government and no action will take place if it is against the will of the majority of students," Gabriel said.
By the way, check out the picture caption:
Abraham, Haitham, and Tony, who did not give their last names, work at The Coffee Spot in the Bear's Lair on Lower Sproul Plaza.Aww, no last names. I wonder how they found out that other guy named Haitham had a last name of "Alloum"?
