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... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I am absolutely disgusted with the latest GOP vote to restrict benefits to veterans. This is another part of an ongoing attack on veterans by people who claim the “patriotic” high ground and who profess to be concerned for human rights and dignity. It is beyond comprehension that people can vote to send soldiers to war (none of their own family, of course), and then vote to limit benefits... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I just wanted to thank the Campus Times, especially Christian Orozco, for the article last Friday (“Kennan fights for justice,” Oct. 11). I only hope that some people will read it and become involved in one or more of the many causes we need to fight for right now: Veteran’s benefits, LGBT rights, women’s rights, voting rights, raising the minimum wage, supporting organizations...

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... 

Letters to the Editor

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, 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...
