More excellent health coverage is appreciated

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...

November 8, 2013


Filed under Letters to the Editor

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...

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

October 21, 2013


Filed under Letters to the Editor

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


Filed under Letters to the Editor

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


Filed under Letters to the Editor

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...

Major League Soccer is just as important as NFL

October 14, 2013


Filed under Letters to the Editor

Editor:The few times I have seen articles in The Daily Evergreen about sports outside of Pullman, they have been about the Seahawks. I’ve wondered why other regional sports aren’t also covered. For the sports section to receive my best regards, it needs to include more than just Pete Carroll and R...

Obama is not the one to blame for shutdown

October 14, 2013


Filed under Letters to the Editor

Editor:Wednesday’s "Thanks Obama" column targeted the entirely wrong person responsible for the shutdown, not to mention it contained some misinformation. Mount Vernon was mistakenly closed and reopened shortly thereafter, specifically because it's not federal property.First off, the GOP is currently s...

ASWSU looks foolish

Filed under Letters to the Editor

Editor:ASWSU should do some more research before passing a resolution purporting to speak for all students, and especially when that resolution slams a well-respected University department.The ASWSU resolution is solely based on the words of disgruntled employees and their friends, and not on a clear ...

October 7, 2013


Filed under Letters to the Editor

Editor:College students are keenly aware of the high cost of education and health care. They are plagued with the question, “how am I going to pay for this?”Students attending professional schools such as graduate programs or medical school are even more affected by the price tag of higher educa...

Dr. Dave is still recovering

September 30, 2013


Filed under Letters to the Editor

Editor:The recent article entitled "Welcome Home, Dr. Dave" was a lovely tribute and likely well intended, but left the distinct impression that David Warner has completed/nearly completed his recovery process. Nothing could be further from the truth.To the average reader who knows nothing about David...
