    Priority registration discriminates

    It’s Sunday at 7 a.m. and I’m ready to register but I can’t. I do not have access to WebReg until 11.

    I am a junior and like a small percentage of UA students I do not have a computer or access to the Internet from my home. I am forced to do my registration somewhere on campus.

    So what is the problem with that? The problem is the Sunday at 7 a.m. opening time slot for priority registration is four hours earlier than the university’s information commons opens.

    Why is this four hour disparity discriminatory? The university’s policy discriminates against me and provides an unfair advantage to students who have a computer and Internet access by granting them unimpeded access to the registration process four hours before me, institutionalizing socioeconomic segregation. The result is that I am relegated to choose between the less desirable classes after earlier students have made their priority selections. I suggest this is an unfair policy.

    If you need a little help…

    Daniel Sullivan asked Daily Wildcat readers to “”Give masturbation a chance”” last Friday. Now, I do not intend to make a long treatise of where I stand on the subject; however, I just want to point out that if anyone wants to give masturbation a chance, yet needs a little help getting aroused, all you need to do is peruse the pages of most editions of the Arizona Daily Wildcat. Some days its pages are so filled with smut that I can’t imagine why any UA student might subscribe to Playboy magazine. I guess the Daily Wildcat staff are willing to sell their morality to the showclubs and sex stores if the price is right.
