Re: Beached, Feb.18

To the Editor:
This letter is in response to your editorial about the "Top Ten Things to do on your Slack Week." The No.1 thing to do is the reason why I am writing this letter to you.

In the editorial, the No.1 thing to do on your slack week was "...go to Thunder Bay – you would be able to say that you were the only one that went." Coincidentally, I was that ONE! I went to Thunderbay to visit my friend that goes to school at Lakehead University. Surprisingly to many, The Gazette most importantly, I had a blast and it was the same weather as here! I would suggest to all of those students who have no idea what to do for slack week next year and are a little short on money, to spend their week in good old Thunder Bay!

Here are the top 10 reasons to go to Thunder Bay on your slack week:

10. Beautiful scenery.

9. You will not get a sunburn.

8. Who would not want to go visit the home town of Paul Schaffer?

7. You CAN drink the water.

6. It costs under $3 for drinks!

5. You do not have to convert your money to a foreign currency.

4. You are able to speak the language.

3. You feel intellectual when having a conversation with a Lakehead student.

2. You drink so much, that you do not even realize where you are anyways... (refer to #6)

1. It beats staying in London!
