Letter to the editor: PETA’s true agenda

Letter to the editor

February 12, 2014

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

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...

Letter to the editor: PLOS ONE defends milk study

Letter to the editor: PLOS ONE defends milk study

Letter to the editor

January 17, 2014

Editor:Hats off to Corrine Harris for writing a provocative piece, which appropriately belonged in the opinion section of your paper.People who choose to purchase organic food do so for many reasons.  The most valid reasons, if peer-reviewed science is your benchmark, are reducing pesticide dietary ex...

Letter to the editor: “Lace ’em up, son”

Letter to the editor

January 17, 2014

Editor:Just a few comments regarding Adam Loewy’s “Change of scenery” article on Wednesday, Jan. 15.  I support his right to his opinion and the right to spout facts on the lack of success of the Ken Bone coaching era. However, he is way out of line criticizing the performance of a student athle...

Letter to the editor: Organic milk not what it’s cracked up to be

Letter to the editor

January 15, 2014

To the author,  I have to say, it is rare to find a columnist that knows how to dissect the "organic" argument, especially in such a scientifically substantiated and readable way.  I grew up on and now own an all grass fed cattle ranch and when people say that I should convert to organic I want to ...

West Coast is catching the Eastern teams in the world of sports

December 6, 2013

Editor:As a response to the article “East coast teams struggling to exert dominance,” I’d like to say that the East Coast has dominated the sporting world for quite some time. Fortunately, for us lowly and humble West Coaster's, it's not so farfetched to say that the West is catching up.Take a look at...

Trash-talk is immature

December 2, 2013

Editor:I found Beau Baily's opinion piece on the Cougar-Husky rivalry childish and unprofessional. While the rivalry can be fun and promotes school spirit on both sides, talking poorly of another university in our school paper is simply immature. Smack-talking the Huskies makes us look like we don't ...

WSU not for the entitled

December 2, 2013

Editor:Beau Baily’s “Why we fight” was a good column. I attended both schools, ultimately graduating from Wazzu because I was not a child of privilege. I was just a military vet cashing in his G.I. bill on a top tier education. The stigma of entitlement doesn't fly with us hard-working alums. Go Co...

Blame the insurance companies, not Obama

November 22, 2013

Editor:I was angered by Ashley Lynn Fisher’s article on Obamacare that basically just repeated Fox News or The Blaze’s rhetoric. I feel that insurance companies should be the ones taking the blame for the canceled policies, not the president.  They were the ones who knowingly sold healthcare plans ...

Evergreen, show off the Cougar research

November 22, 2013

Editor:WSU is, first and foremost, a research university, but you wouldn't know that from reading The Daily Evergreen.  There are many things in college life that The Daily Evergreen contributors feel compelled to cover, but the university's main reason for existence doesn't seem to be among them. I rarely ...

Stay for the Utah game, clinch the bowl

November 22, 2013

Editor:You all seriously need to think about staying for the football game this Saturday. The game starts at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, so you could be on the road home around 4:30 or 5 p.m., which is only 24 hours later than if you leave on Friday. It’s 24 more hours with your Cougar family. Should w...

Thank you for standing up for us Christians

November 18, 2013

Editor:I hadn't even gotten halfway through Alyssa Reynolds’ column - "Praying for Tolerance" - when I decided that I needed to write in to thank you. As someone who identifies as a Christian, I find myself walking a careful line each day. Although I have the human right to believe in what I believe and t...

Every student. Every story. Every day.
