Editor,   Throughout the last 20 years of my life, I have unwaveringly supported Washington State University as a WSU student-athlete, proud alumnus and now employee of the athletic department. So, I was very disheartened to read the story published in the Evergreen stemming from rumors and un...

Letter to the Editor | Dear President Schulz

June 28, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

I was disappointed to read, in Timothy Egan’s column in the New York Times on 23 June 2018, that the head football coach at Washington State University, Mike Leach, “tweeted out a video of a 2014 speech by Barack Obama that was altered to make him sound like a one-world-government tyrant.” I sincerely...

Letter to the Editor | Trust issues

June 28, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

I am embarrassed to call myself a “Cougar.” Coach Mike Leach has a right to his opinion but he does not have the right to doctor the words of our respected former President, Barack Obama, so that they seem to say just the opposite of what was said. As a representative of the university he must be...

Letter to the Editor | The meaning of “Republican”

Denis Tracy, County prosecutor

June 14, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

My first reaction was an emotional one, when I read the article about James Allsup quietly grabbing a Precinct Committee Officer position in the county Republican Party. My first thought was: my dad went to war to fight the Nazis. So did millions of other Americans. A bloody, muddy, slaughtering war....

Letter to the Editor | Supporting Planned Parenthood

Roz Luther, Pullman

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Yesterday I read an interesting fact, “In 1964 Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman became honorary chairmen of Planned Parenthood.” In 1968 President Nixon called population growth “one of the most serious challenges to human destiny in the last third of this century.” That is two...

This past February, my third-grade students wrote letters to small-town newspapers around our country. The letters asked people in each state to send items of interest that the student might include in their final State Fair project. My students were thrilled as the packages started arriving from...

Letter to the Editor | Column about housing and dining not accurate

Robert Tattershall, Pullman

April 12, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Note: The allegations Tattershall presents in the following letter are being investigated. In response to the inaccurate opinion article in the April 11, 2018 edition of the Evergreen titled “Don’t allow athletics to siphon money from housing, dining,” I’d like to set the record straight. Hous...

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Thanks for your editorial supporting high school students’ right to speak up, especially when it involves their safety (“Support students’ decision to speak up” by the Editorial Board, The Daily Evergreen, March 22, 2018). Many seniors can vote because they are often 18, but all students can ...
