Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, While I am sure it is well intended, a mandatory helmet law is not the answer to bicycle safety (“Liu urges reform for helmet law,” March 6). This will only discourage riders from participating in a safe activity that has been getting safer over the years. Cycling accidents in California are down 42 percent since 2000. “The evidence shows that mandatory helmet laws make the streets... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, What the writer of “#LeoMarketingScheme” (Feb. 27) fails to realize is that many departments around campus – and many offices in the general marketplace – observe ‘Casual Fridays’ (a day when attire that is more relaxed is allowed, a morale-booster). The idea of Leo Pride Fridays was most likely originally geared towards La Verne staff, since many were dressing more casually... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I find it necessary to express my extreme displeasure with the La Verne’s current policy that requires the University be in session on Veteran’s Day. The fact that you hold a parade and other festivities is irrelevant; I find it hypocritical at best and at worst, insulting. The entire country recognizes Veteran’s Day to honor those individuals who have put their lives in harm’s... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a Vietnam veteran and a 45-year participant in the antiwar movement, I would like to propose a goal which I hope we can all share: May we have future generations that have no veterans, because there were no wars to create them. The Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans I have counseled overwhelmingly support this philosophy; can we support them? Their wars didn’t end when... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I disagree that voter ID laws are discriminatory (“Voter ID law is discrimination,” Oct. 31) You cite figures of only two cases of voter fraud . I would like to see your sources on that. I can name two right off the top of my head: Wendy Rosen from Maryland and Al Franken from Minnesota. While running for office in her home state of Maryland, Ms. Rosen not only voted for herself but... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I am writing in response to Dr. Janis Deitz’s letter to the editor (Oct. 3), in which she takes the position that the United States had to drop two atomic bombs on innocent civilian populations, including children, killing over 200,000 immediately and many, many more in subsequent years and decades as a consequence of the massive amount of radiation released. How does a country that... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I support Gloria Montebruno Saller’s opposition to the atomic bomb in that we should not need to use weapons like this (“Effects of atomic bomb still felt.” Sept. 19). However, as the daughter of a Navy officer who was on an aircraft carrier headed to Japan in August of 1945, I also know the far greater toll in life if the war has not ended when it did. This decision was the... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, After reading “La Verne drops five spots in college rankings” by Michael Saakyan in the Campus Times (Sept. 19), I was troubled that comments attributed to me did not accurately reflect the basis of the US News & World Report rankings. I am a believer in and advocate of wide access to higher education, and I am proud of our University’s record in this area. Our University provides... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, At the start of this school year, I feel it is important that we work toward treating all students and staff with respect and dignity. ULV has long stood for equality and peace, and we as a community need to focus our energies on creating a campus where people are treated equally and with dignity, regardless of their ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or any of the... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Support the troops – when will the slogan become a reality? Recently I saw a three-tour Afghanistan veteran with a sign that said “Veteran – help me find a job.” I watched while hundreds of cars, many with “Support the Troops” bumper stickers and American flag decals on their cars went by. Not one person stopped. My girlfriend and I talked to him – he says this...
