Re: “Biased Gauss forcing his own views on King’s”
Dec. 5, 2007

To the Editor:
I opened The Gazette on Dec. 5, 2007 for my daily fix of Western news and oddly enough I saw a letter discussing the actions of Ryan Gauss.

While I am not a King’s student, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know Gauss over the past year, and I can tell you the way he has been portrayed in your paper is inappropriate.

As university students, we are obligated to take on an awful lot. With our schoolwork and part-time jobs, it’s a wonder some students are able to take on more.

Gauss not only does the aforementioned; he also runs a family business in the absence of his sick father, is president of the King’s University College Students’ Council and is active within the London community.

While the Canadian Blood Services issue is not in my purview, as I do not know enough regarding the matter, I wonder if that overzealous letter to the editor has actual substance behind it.

Did [the author] contact Gauss or anyone on the KUCSC before writing? Is she involved in student politics? Is she trying to make everyone happy?

Before someone attempts to have their name printed at the expense of someone else, maybe she should first think about all the hard work a few words can dismiss.

You rarely see ‘thank you’ letters printed " how come? Why must everything put people on the defensive?
