Letter to the editor

Editor:First, let me thank you for putting a crossword in almost every issue this semester. That being said, it is the only reason I pick up the paper in the morning – aside from the police blotter, of course. Sarcasm aside, the lack of any actual news is a huge disappointment. At present, the world w...

Filed under Columns, Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Editor: As the president and founder of VegWSU, our school's new plant-based diet club, I feel that the opinions expressed in the March 10 article “Score for the carnivores” were poorly supported and the lifestyle was misrepresented.First of all, the article suggests that iron, zinc and B12 are onl...

Editor:I understand that the opinion section is just that – opinion. But Marissa Mararac’s piece against vegetarians, “Score for carnivores,” is so misinformed that I decided I needed to write in and share some facts.First of all, yes, Vitamin B12 is not found in plants and is found in meat. Howev...

After reading the article “Tobacc-no,” I applaud the ASWSU Senate for its efforts toward designating WSU Pullman as a tobacco-free campus.This is the exact type of advocacy that the student government was created for. The Vancouver and Spokane campuses of Washington State University already have ...

Editor:On March 1 at 11:59 p.m., students from across campus held each other in a large circle screaming their lungs out to “Don't Stop Believin'.” A minute later they collapsed down, and it might’ve been dramatic, but what else are you supposed to do after dancing for 12 hours?More than 200 danc...

Editor:I was shocked and dismayed at the news of professor Stratton's death.Just a few weeks ago, we had email correspondence concerning letters of recommendation.

Editor:Thank you for your column yesterday, “Pet-killing hypocrites,” regarding PETA’s skewed and sick attempts to be a friend to all animals. I wish you had more space to elaborate further on what a lie PETA is.PETA has long hidden their true agenda and picks their battles poorly. They are jus...

Letter to the editor: Do your research before shaming Sherman

Letter to the editor

January 24, 2014


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Editor:I feel like the Wednesday's column "Sherman should just shut up" was very condescending and backed with little to no facts or support.It wrongly portrayed a player who has dedicated days of his time to charities not just in Seattle, but in his home town of Compton, Calif., as well.Chris shoul...
