Read my previous post if you haven't already. This one won't make much sense without that one.
I will be taking the following steps to address Mardi Gras this year during the SEZ:
- I will not visit or remain in SLO any longer than necessary to handle school-related business (this means I will only be showing up when assignments/tests are due).
- I will not patronize any of the local SLO businesses I usually visit during this time (and I will be informing the owners of why).
- I will draft letters to the Tribune, the Mustang Daily, the SLO city council and the Cal Poly administration concerning the handling of this year's Mardi Gras. I'll hold off on at least the Tribune and Mistakes Daily letters until I've had a chance to observe the reaction of others (or lack thereof).
If you can think of anything else I should be doing to express my dissatisfaction at the way Mardi Gras is being handled, please let me know.
Just for the record, if I do any form of partying or getting drunk at all, it will be in the privacy of my own apartment, well outside of SLO city limits.
