Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, In response to the May 14 Faculty Assembly resolution that affirmed a Faculty Hiring Plan that endorses race-based hiring, I would like to express my reassurance that this resolution is non-binding and that it is not and will not be University policy. I respect that Human Resources will guard against any such plans becoming University policy. In its current iteration, I find the hiring... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I’m writing to let you know what I think about the layout of the front page of the May 1 Campus Times. It is of poor taste and quite offensive. I thought we had more class than that. I can’t believe that “Applying safe sex principles” merits the front page slot, bigger than “Lieberman named President of the Year.” A picture of Dr. Lieberman next to her article would have been... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, The purpose of the La Verne Academy’s Monday noon lecture series is to offer the opportunity for faculty to present findings of their scholarly research and promote a thoughtful critical review and discussion of those findings from those present. It appears that some of the remarks and inferences made to Dr. Cook’s presentation (“‘Palestine’ lecture sparks debate,” April 17)... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I am writing a response to Anthony Reyes’ letter to the editor published last week (April 17), as this is not the first time a reader accuses a Campus Times editorial of being biased. On the record, I want to explain that an editorial is an opinion piece written by the editorial board, hence its anonymity. If an editorial sounds opinionated then it is doing its job. In his letter, Reyes... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, The bylaw change the Campus Times reported on actually requires one semester of ASULV experience for an individual running for president – not executive vice president (“Bylaw excludes potential leaders,” April 10). The bylaw was amended following discussion in which the Senate addressed some of the concerns the Times has brought up in the past, including the issue of how elections... 

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...
