To the editor, I am writing to express my disappointment in the Oct. 19, 2015 edition of The Daily. In said edition, an article titled “How Mexican drug cartels are fueling America's deadly heroin epidemic” was shared under the “In The News” section. An editorial choice to publish such a...

To the editor, Case Western Reserve University alumna, class of 2014 here: pretty much everyone hates automatic flush toilets.
