2 L The pinins August 27, 1998 Letter t the Editr. Hecing vs Exas SU Acadeics n the Back Burner Dear Editr, As I read the first editin f The fr the fall seester, I was re than a little verwheled at the respnses t the current Clintn situatin. What really threw e ver. the edge was the article by Macy Nickles. I write this nt as a plitcal fcus, but rather as a ral fcus. Mr. Nickles ade se very gd arguents in his article, but t suggest that the atter just be put behind us is unthinkable. What the president did was wrng. He aditted ' that, yes. I frgive hi, yes. The president shuld g unpunished, n. The atter isn't just the affair with Mnica Lewinski. If it were, then the atter wuld be ver. The gvernent has n right t punish the president n that situatin, but the fact f the atter is that the affair happened n ur tie. We the peple f the United States, we the taxpayers, vted this an in t run ur cuntry, nt t waste ur tie with scandal. Even wrse than the fact that the affair happened n ur tie is the very serius atter that he LIED abut it. Legally, he saysit wasn't a lie. Ethically and rally it was. If there is anything that I have learned in y tie at in y business and educatin classes, it is the fact that ethics ust be upheld. When the President f the United States denstrates that ethics aren't iprtant, I have a prble with that. Withut rals and ethics, ur pr cuntry is headed fr d. All I can say is Gd have ercy n us. The fact that the president was ethically and rally in the wrng says that he desn't have respect fr the presidency, nr the peple he serves. That, y fellw students, is unacceptable. Gd will handle the affair situatin, but Aericans can nt just stand by and watch ur values be trashed.

There are even peple ut there wh are chsing nt t wn sets in an effrt t better spend and anage their tie. Still, the prliferatin f TV sets in the public spaces f ur cuntry is driving the ajrity f us t distractin whether we ntice it r nt. I' writing this, y last clun fthe suer, in New Yrk City. Here, in Ties square, in New Yrk City. Here, in Ties Square, the gargantuan NBC televisin screen ls ver the city and sets the pace fr the st infratin-intensive city in the natin.

Televisin sets are re present all the tie, and all t ften in places where peple g t eet and relate t each ther. This has gt t stp. This wrld is sggy with edia.
