Dear Dr. Love, Professor Feelgood,
Please tell me why guys al­
ways spit “goobers” on the ground.
It’s a gross habit and you have to
step around what looks like bird
doo. Why don’t they spit into a
kleenex and throw it away.
Dear Goober,
Spitting on the ground gives
men the opportunity to prove their
existence on earth as studs. Spit­
ting into a Kleenex is not the answer
either, as the goober would then
get all over his hand. I think it’s all
of our duty to go up to the next
goober spitter we see, stop him,
and make a citizens arrest with a

Dear Zen,
It looks like you have gotten
yourself in a bit of a predicament.
We find that the best way to mend
a broken heart is a swift dose of
your favorite beverage. (We won’t
mention what kind but you know
what we mean). To calm yourself
down, a frivolous night of Alf re­
runs on TV will often do the trick.
However, if you are a direct per­
son perhaps you should be up front
with her and express yourself.
Regardless of what happens, don’t
worry about it. There are a lot of

Having someone tailgate you

most of the drivers on the road
know the rules. Whether they
follow them or not is a different
story. Perhaps you should go out
and buy a 8x8 piece of mirror and
carry it in your car. When those

Smoker wants clean,
isolated smoking area
To the editor,
I am not writing this to ex­
plore the merits, or lack thereof,
of smoking. There is no point.
Non-smokers hate smoke and
smokers love it.
I am writing this to try and let
everyone know how I and my fel­
low smokers feel. First and fore­
most, I’m cold! I used to have a
dog named “Skipper” who had an
A-frame dog house with windows.
He had it better than I do now, if
I want to smoke.
We had a petition that asked:
Should the smokers be allowed a
place inside? There were a large
number of non-smokers who
agreed we should be indoors and
isolated. We don’t want to bother
people. We just want a dry, warm
place with tables and chairs so we
can relax a little and do our home­
work. We recently had a sit-in which
was done with decorum and re­
spect for others. Most of us smoke
the same way.
Non-smokers are in the ma­
jority on this campus. Smokers
are a minority, but we cannot be
silent. In June of this year, smok­
ers in Oregon were taxed to the
tuneof $12,860,345 in federal and
state taxes. That’s a lot of taxes
per month.
All we are asking for is one
isolated area where we can smoke
without infringing on the non-
smokers’ rights. We are approxi­
mately 1/4 of the campus popula­
tion and we only want about two
percent of the covered campus
area. The room we ask for should
be isolated completely from non­
smoking areas. This should re­
move all concern over whether or
not smoking indoors would be
detrimental to the health of non-
smokers, for no cigarette smoke
would be entering non-smoking
areas. It should also be centrally
located so that those smokers who
are handicapped or older can use
When we vote, we don’t want
to look at whether we should smoke
or not; whether it is good for us or
not. We want to vote on the spe­
cific point: whether or not we
should be allowed to smoke in­
doors. The other day a lady asked
me, “Where does it stop?” Will
drug testing be next?
Where will the administra­
tion’s control end? What line will
we cross next?

Campus Views
"What are your future career plans?"
In last week’s "From the
editor" column it was strongly
implied that the Enterprise
Courier had stolen a quote from
the Clackamas Print concern­
ing the death of basketball
player Raymond Bell. This was
not the case.
David Clark: I am planning a
future in the field of word
processing. Until that time I
will study at Clackamas and
then on to USC.
James M. Williams: I would
like to be a counselor be­
cause I feel that I could help
troubled kids by showing
them that everyone is equal.
Deni Gardner: My future,
career plans are to get my
Bachelor’s degree in music; I
am working on music com­
position and would like to

Heidi A. Stardig: I’m out to
get my Master’s in account­
ing and have a strong back­
ground in psychology. As a
CPA, I’ll have the opportu­
nity to make over $50,000 a
year. With a background in
psych I’ll have a better un­

The comments about the
Courier were made with bad
judgement and the Print would
like to apologize to the Cou­
rier. It was a mistake to word
the article so that the Courier
was implicated as having sto­
len the quote.
We are very sorry...
