Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Thank you, Jason Collins. The courage and dignity that it took to reveal your true identity is very inspiring. I watch a segment of our society continue to vilify gays and lesbians and I am struck by the fact that same-minded people were vilifying interracial marriage (“It will destroy the institution of marriage”) and equality for African-Americans (“The Bible says they should be... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I read your Op-Ed piece “Student voices are not being heard” (April 5) and if it’s any consolation, the faculty often finds itself in the same position. But I know it’s not and I do commend you for speaking up. To effect change, however, students will have to be not only vocal, but also persistent, and be willing to take action. The food service workers’ decision to unionize...

Dear Editor, Strike down parts of the 1965 Voting Rights Act? This idea, unfortunately, is not amazing to me. With the unbelievably racist bile spewed by some members of our political right over the past four years, it’s all too predictable. In the past two years 41 states have passed 180 laws to restrict voter registration; the president of the “land of the free” has been called an “ape,”... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Regarding the latest in an extremely long list of shootings in this country, I would like to make some observations: we glamorize war and invade countries that didn’t attack us, we promote further violence by having a death penalty, we have two-and-a-half times the per capita gun ownership of any other country in the world (and two-and-a-half times the murder rate), it’s harder... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, It was a beautiful sight to see the crowd that attended the Veteran’s Day ceremony on Friday, Nov. 9. My own war was over 40 years ago, but the young men and women who served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan deserve our support. I’ve been appalled at the level of commitment people have toward our vets; there are lots of people with bumper stickers saying they “Support the Troops,”... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I realize that the last thing people want to hear any more about is the parking situation. I do not have an answer to the problem, but I have some minor suggestions that might make things a little easier. As a former student, current employee and local resident, I offer a unique point of view. I absolutely love living in a college town. I love everything about it. I accept that parking... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a 51-year activist in the civil rights movement, I am becoming frustrated at seeing people in this country repeat the same mistakes of the past. In the 1960s I regularly heard “It’s against the Bible” when I was confronted for the “sin” of attempting to gain equal rights for African-Americans. Leaders of several churches would quote the Bible to me, explaining that not... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I read your editorial about ASULV not doing their job as leaders at the university (“ASULV not providing leadership,” Sept. 21). May I say that you are sadly mistaken. Yes, I see that people might first think that ASULV and CAB are similar, but that is not the case. Being part of the Office of Student Life for the last two years, ASULV has provided more than, a free meal and a free... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I would like to commend writer Robert Penalber for highlighting the important Migrant Education Summer Institute in your first publication of the year (“Migrant students succeed with Migrant Education Summer Institute,” Sept. 7). The Institute should be showcased for its efforts to make education as accessible as possible for all students. The hard work of Dr. Adonay Montes and his... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Kudos to President Obama for voicing his approval of gay marriage. It was a courageous act, considering the incredible bigotry and hatred that some people are directing at our LGBT brethren. I hear people use Biblical quotations to justify their positions against gays/lesbians, and it reminds me of the 1960s, when I was a Civil Rights Worker trying to change our treatment of Black people...
