Dems' unsettling unity
THIS NEW STYLE of the Democrats, while it inspires
pleasant visions of a more progressive White House,
is a touch unsettling.
Jimmy Carter waltzed through last week's conven-
tion looking good, a man with delegates in the bank and
an excellent shot at the presidency. His smiling face
made any disagreement seem an insult.
Jerry Brown held out until the last moment, re-
leasing his large block of California delegates from the
floor rather than the podium after spending several
weeks rounding up delegates around the country. And
with all the harmony under Carter, one found oneself al-
most angry with Brown for doing so; what an insult that
he would interrupt the procession. Morris Udall gave up
his delegates somewhat more gracefully, but even he
seemed a thorn in Carter's side, an unruly child spoiling
the picnic.
But to set carried away with the unity syndrome
is to encourage Jimmy Carter to conduct a campaign and
presidency in his own way, without policy suggestions
from other members of the narty. A party is not a party
without a broad ranee of dissent and discussion. Brown
and Udall and the minorities who spoke against the Car-
ter steamroller had a rieht and a duty to be heard, and
if the Democrats continue to souelch disagreement, they
may be cutting their own throats.

Mailbox: A mean meter maid

To The Daily:
I was walking down S. For-
est towards Geddes on July 6.
I was with a friend, and just
as we passed S. University we
observed an older, dark haired
"meter maid" driving a beat up
City Pinto. On a short side
street there were a couple of
guys, one black and one white,
tossing back and forth what
looked like a football. The
football bounced into the front
of the meter maid's car.
She stuck her head out of the

window and told them to stop
playing ball there in the street.
The black guy - maybe he
didn't realize the woman was a
meter maid - said, "You don't
live here lady". Then the meter
maid got out of her car and
proceeded to write out a ticket
for these two innocents. Which,
all things considered, is pretty
ridiculous. The two weren't ob-
structing any traffic - none
had come by, indeed - and
they surely wouldn't have done
so deliberately. It appears that
the meter maid belongs to a

certain percentage of society
with a certain psychosis for be-
ing mean through illogic. I saw
the same meter maid write a
ticket out to a car on Maynard
by the Student Activities Build-
ing. The car was in a No Park.
ing zone, but it was occupied.
Granted, the law is clear in
this instance, but it would have
done far more to further re.
spect for "law and order" tad
the maid politely asked the car
to move on.
