The Tech's recent editorial ["UA Constitutional Debate Is New Low," May 9] condemned the attempt to replace the Undergraduate Association constitution with wording finalized just 24 hours before last Monday's UA Council meeting. At first I was pleased. At the UA council meeting the previous night, I played a major role in defeating the new constitution. But somehow, the editorial managed to implicate me as the person responsible for the changes that I worked against. Naturally, I am greatly displeased that The Tech has chosen to misrepresent my views on the issue.

It has always bothered me that the opinion editors of The Tech seem too craven to take a stand on UA issues until after they come to a vote. Relying upon false implications to make a point represents a new low for The Tech's frequently barren opinion page. I would expect a greater commitment to accuracy from a paper whose editor is ostensibly in a period of introspection regarding what constitutes ethical journalism. I hope the new year brings new standards of outspokenness and integrity to your editorial page.
