A matter of choice

San Luis Obispo



In the matter of Michael Pollan (“Controversy erupts over Michael Pollan’s Poly lecture,” Oct. 8), the administration of Cal Poly was faced with a simple, clear choice: whether to risk depriving the students of a much needed educational facility, or to teach by example (a fundamental axiom of the university)—in other words, whether principles should prevail over pragmatic, material goals.

The Cal Poly administration has made its choice. I sincerely hope that in their careers, the students will make a far more intelligent choice.
