Karlo Lacked Evidence

I would like to respond to the column by Thomas R. Karlo '97 in The Tech's extra issue ["Office Reshuffling Endangers Student Needs," Oct. 2]. Karlo's column was absurdly unconvincing because he wallowed in generalities - some of which seemed quite outlandish - without even one specific example to back them up.

That I disagree with Karlo is not of concern; people will and must disagree. However, I am concerned that Karlo can write about administrators doing power grabs after admitting that he's completely uninvolved with the administration and student government. He did not even take the space to ground his views in fact. Perhaps Karlo used no examples because there are none. In this case, The Tech should not have printed the column at all.
