Flooded walkways should be avoided

This is a response to “Block off flooded paths on campus” (SN 2/13).

I thought America reached its lowest intelligence level when I heard the XFL was the highest-rated program its opening weekend - then I read this letter.

How many other people did you see struggling for their lives in the river? I think it’s safe to say none, and how in the world can you say with a straight face that it’s MSU’s responsibility to block off flooded paths? Do you need the grounds crew to hold your hand and walk you to class every day so you don’t fall into the river?

I have a news flash - weather happens. Places flood and get iced over. When this happens, it’s up to us to avoid the problems weather brings about.

Since I wasted about a minute of my life reading this letter, I feel it’s my duty to give you this tidbit of advice: In the future, when you see an ice-covered, flooded path and the temperature is warmer than 32 degrees, choose a different way.
