Letter to the Editor

t is clear from the article “Sexing Discourse” (October 29, 2013) by Reed E.

Letters

Open Doors

I have been at pains to make time to sit with our Orthodox students, who frankly feel neglected and underserved here this year, with some justification.

At this point, preventing the climate crisis is a question of political will—and our federal government is being held hostage by the influence of fossil fuel corporations.

Unquestionable Motives

America is a unique country where building a single nation out of many diverse ways of life requires a strong set of laws making clear that attempts to divide us by intimidation will not be taken lightly.
