Letter to the Editor: Today’s Music Needs Cleaning Up
Posted: December 08, 2016

Today I got on iTunes and immediately went to the store to go look at the top music purchased. The No. 1 most popular song is “Starboy” (feat. Daft Punk) by The Weeknd and the second most popular song as of now is “Black Beatles” (feat. Gucci Mane) by Rae Sremmurd; both of which have tiny red “E” letters next to the names, classifying them as “Explicit.”

Letter to the Editor: Lack of Stance on Confederate Flag Saddens Alumnus
Updated: October 04, 2016 - 5:03 pm

I find it disgraceful, that in 2016, the Associated Student Government didn’t have the conviction to vote for the resolution to, simply, go on record, to oppose the flying of the confederate flag at the Bikes, Blues and BBQ event in Fayetteville. And, in the ultimate cowardice, used an old-school, Faubus-like political move to table the resolution, so no one had to go on record. Talk about statesmanship.

Letter to the Editor: Vote Trump, Bring Change
Posted: September 30, 2016

Hillary Clinton promises free college. Free college would cost taxpayers $350 billion over ten years and increase our national debt – same scam as ObamaCare. Clinton would give the federal government control over our higher education and ruin it too.

Letter to the Editor: UAPD Didn't Answer the Call
Posted: February 27, 2013

I’m writing this letter to the editor so maybe people will take the time to stop and read a few lines.  My mission: To remind people of the diminishing concept of compassion.  Some of the words used to define compassion are “understanding” and “empathy.”  It is regarded as a fundamental part of human love and a cornerstone of greater social interconnection and humanism.
