Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

To the Editor:   Although Santorum has been mocked throughout the media and by Hatten for his controversial claim that prenatal testing, specifically amniocentesis, leads to more abortions, medical experts and available data strongly support his claim.

Letter to the Editor: Third party candidates are candidates too

November 5, 2010


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Letter to the Editor: Queue project doesn’t eliminate ultimate Euclid-Adelbert problem

September 17, 2010


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

To the editor: Although making a "queue" area will help with the extreme congestion, this will ultimately not solve the central problem. The central problem is that the vast majority of those crossing the intersection of Euclid and Adelbert have to cross both streets. If the administration truly wanted...

Letter to the Editor: Stronger SEC commitment to accountability, their constitution needed before they take away Greek Life’s money

September 3, 2010


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

To the editor: For the past three years as a (non-Greek) Case student, I have entrusted my hundred-plus dollar Student Activity Fee (SAF) to the Student Executive Committee (SEC).
