    RantLetter: In response to Peace Train's 'controversial' column last week

    07/02/2015 09:02 PM MDT
    Editor's note: On June 26, the Colorado Daily withheld Tom Mayer's Peace Train column, titled "Racism and war," due to the use of offensive and derogatory names that have been used to label the enemy in times of war. Although it was noted by Mayer that the intention of the use of the disparaging names was "to dramatize the vicious nature of racism," the editor opted to pull the column.

    Letter: Why is there no CU men's varsity soccer team?
    04/28/2015 04:55 PM MDT - We as students go to a nationally recognized research institution with a population of more than 30,000 in students, yet we still can't have a men's soccer team. CU currently sponsors 17 varsity athletics teams in both men and women's sports. This means that there is an imbalance of both gender teams, which leads me to propose that the next sport to be added be a men's D1 soccer team to keep the balance. I feel as though this sport is the only one singled out of all the major sports played in the world. It's not like there is a lack of potential people to add another sport to the men's side of the program. Full Story

    LETTER: Boost economy with carbon fee and dividend
    10/22/2014 09:38 PM MDT - It has been a wild ride on fossil fuels, but now we know about the downsides. All that stuff we unburied- coal, oil, and natural gas- went into the air, heating the planet. Here is something powerful we can do about it, without expanding government, and without sacrificing while others are allowed to wreck havoc with the place we all call home. Full Story

    Letter to the Editor: Setting the record straight after anti-Semitic accusations
    07/27/2014 07:45 PM MDT - A recent letter to the editor (Monday, July 21, titled "Columnist is anti-Semitic in 'Peace Train' editorial") by Jason Schreiber made accusations of anti-Semitism. He apparently is unaware that there is a difference between legitimately criticizing Israeli policies and anti-Semitism. Please read the article about this distinction by Judith Butler (lrb.co.uk/v25/n16/judith-butler/no-its-not-anti-semitic). Full Story

    Letter: Let's manage resources well and reuse glass
    06/26/2014 12:41 PM MDT - Brian Palmer makes a good point in his Tuesday article in the Colorado Daily that glass jars are healthier than plastic ones — which often leach endocrine disruptors into our food — but that the environmental cost to transport and recycle the heavier glass is still too high. Full Story

    Letter: The Nigerian girls are our daughters
    06/23/2014 01:44 PM MDT - The Igbo people of Nigeria have a saying, "One cannot hear a child's cry and say one is busy." Their children are our children, and we cannot say we are busy. Full Story
