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

June 14, 2018


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...

Letter to the Editor | Thank you Washington

Letter to the Editor | Thank you Washington

Shari Bozorgzad, Langley School, Virginia

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

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...

Letter to the editor | Students deserve support in activism

Willie Dickerson, Snohomish

April 12, 2018


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 ...

Letter to the Editor | Help a third-grader learn about Washington’s history

Fleur, McLean, Virginia

March 8, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Dear people of the great state of Washington, Hello, I am a third-grade student in Northern Virginia. In third grade, we do state reports, and I have chosen your state. I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Washington as I work on my report. Information I gather for my report wil...

Letters to the Editor | Don’t increase parking price

PATTI ELSHAFEI, Pullman

February 27, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Parking wants to increase rates … again. Absolutely absurd.  They need to take a 2.5 percent decrease like academic programs on campus instead of raising parking rates.  They tried to trick the university consumers into believing that there was no increase this fall 2017 — but by changing...

Letters to the Editor | House should consider immigration bill

NORM LUTHER, Spokane

February 27, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Americans’ memories for political events are notoriously short-lived, but one event should never be forgotten amid our great immigration controversy.  That involves the bipartisan immigration reform bill the U.S. Senate passed by a veto-proof 68-32 margin on June 27, 2013.  The bill included a nationwide...

Letters to the Editor | ASWSU does not do enough to hear constituents

RICK FLORES, Pullman

February 13, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

These opinions and comments are mine and mine alone and do not represent the views of any clubs or organizations I am affiliated with. I did not realize how little ASWSU Senators sought out the opinions of their constituents until I watched the live stream of the senate meeting where they voted on the ...

Letters to the Editor | Legislature should not hide records

JESSE WAITE, Pullman

February 13, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Judge Lanese’s ruling against legislative exemptions to the Public Records Act was definitive and obvious: The legislature is a state agency and hence subject to the act, as a rational person would conclude. Last fall I submitted requests for records pertaining to 12 Democrat legislators’ actions...
