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...

Eating healthy is a luxury some can not afford

November 18, 2013

Editor:The recent article on obesity demonstrates a glaring lack of understanding of how the world works.Healthy food is expensive. Preparing healthy meals from fresh ingredients is time consuming.As a full-time college student, time isn’t something I have a lot of.There’s a reason the McDonald’...

The Daily Wildcat is not responsible for the Megan Coghlan article

November 18, 2013

Editor:Congrats on your win over the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday, but in light of some emails and voicemail messages I’ve received from WSU fans, I wanted to write and clear the air. The Daily Wildcat did not publish the controversial piece written by our co-sports editor Megan Coghlan for a Yahoo Sports blo...

A homeless faux paux

November 13, 2013

Editor:If you were to ask any of my friends about my sense of fashion, they would laugh out loud and say I don’t have one. So I was intrigued by Lance Lijewski’s informative article on Hippie-Boho.But Mr. Lijewski’s comment: “It’s almost impossible to look attractive and stay comfortable wit...

The continuation of politics by other means

November 8, 2013

Editor:The Wednesday, Nov. 6 issue of The Daily Evergreen featured an opinion piece titled “Common Core politics.” Politics is all this opinion is: Mitch Strang's use of neo-conservative sources swings what could have been a thoughtful analysis of the issues and pitfalls in creating nationwide educa...

More excellent health coverage is appreciated

November 8, 2013

Editor:I have never before contacted you about a story run in your paper. To be honest, I have yet to come across one that I felt it really warranted my time. That was until I read “Addiction Comes in Many Forms” by Alyssa Reynolds. I would like to say her article was very well constructed. I like the...

Letter to the editor: WSU can’t grind to a halt for a football game

October 21, 2013

Editor:I was frustrated and disappointed when I heard that class would be canceled for the Thursday game at the end of October. While I understand the logic of the decision (I'm sure most undergrads are thrilled at the idea of a Halloween pre-funk in the form of Cougar football), I was dismayed to th...

GMOs aren’t harmful

October 16, 2013

Editor:The GMO article left me confused about why the author really wants Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) to be labeled. It repeatedly stated that the consumer has a right to know where their food comes from. I agree with this. Unfortunately, there are few laws that regard informing consumers where...

Big business exemption

October 16, 2013

Editor:Regarding the recent column about the shutdown, some say that the GOP is stonewalling a law that has been passed, but they fail to mention that in reality the Republicans are not stonewalling the law as it was passed. Obama said the rich would pay their fair share, yet exempted big business from ObamaCar...
