Last week’s article, “In constitutional flub, SA Senate erases everything its done this semester,” brought back memories from my time covering the SA Senate at the CT. In April 1996, we published “SA Senate votes to disband.” That the article was part of the April Fools’ edition shouldn’t distract from the larger point: For decades, the SA Senate has been the home of comical incompetence dressed up under Robert’s Rules of Order.

I humbly suggest that the CT’s editors give the SA Government the attention and respect it deserves, that of any other extracurricular club. It’s not clear to me why the meetings of the Senate deserve more coverage than, say, the Debate Union. “The SA Government Club” has a certain ring to it.

Editor’s Note: Rovner was editor-in-chief in 1995 and 1996.
