OPINION

Admit more

The debate over race-based admission standards is a difficult one that has valid arguments on both sides. The University of Michigan Law School was ordered by a U.S.

OPINION

More coverage needed for hockey

I agree with what Michonne L. Omo said about the Frozen Four deserving just as much attention from The State News and other newspapers as the Final Four does (“Frozen Four is as important as Final Four” SN 3/27). When I walked into Wells Hall on Monday morning, ready to grab my copy of the paper, I expected - or at least hoped - to see a paper with equal billing for MSU’s men’s basketball and hockey teams.

OPINION

CCW law wont increase crime

However much I disagree with Ashley Bell’sopinion of Michigan’s new concealed weapons law (“Concealed weapons will increase guns,” SN 3/23), I commend her for explaining the bill objectively, as many people like the “Million” Moms (numbering closer to five) and the press fail to do.

OPINION

Izzos coaching deserves credit

Coach Izzo deserves congratulations for what is already another great season, but he deserves even more respect for how he and his team reached this point.

OPINION

Advertisements disrespect religion

I am writing in response to Janell Seymour’s letter, “Christ is there - even on vacation” (SN 3/22). Born and raised on the other side of the world (Taiwan), I have looked at religion issues from a neutral standpoint.

OPINION

Generous gift

The donor who gave money to help fund a new center for the business college should be congratulated for the generous gift. An anonymous donor contributed $8 million toward the soon-to-be completed Executive Development Center.

OPINION

Concealed gun law is responsible

I have a few objections to the column written by Ashley Bell ( “Concealed weapons law will increase guns,” SN 3/23). Most are minor and probably nitpicking on my part. Why does Bell assume any substantial percentage of gun-related accidents occur with concealed weapons?

OPINION

Hockey deserves recognition too

I am writing in response to Michonne Omo’s column, “Frozen Four is as important as Final Four,” (SN 3/27) regarding the lack of hockey team coverage.

OPINION

Evangelists can invade privacy

In response to Janell Seymour’s letter (“Christ is there - even on vacation,” SN 3/22), I would argue that challenging Christians’ or non-Christians’ beliefs is not always a good thing. I, like many others, feel very uncomfortable when evangelists attempt to “convert” people as part of their Christian duty.

OPINION

Speak On

ASMSU should be congratulated for allocating funds to bring poet Maya Angelou to campus. ASMSU’s Student Assembly approved a bill Thursday that would provide $33,000 from the organization’s investment account to cover Angelou’s speaking fees.

OPINION

Bush is paying off national debt

I’m responding to Dan Austin’s column, “Tax cut money should be used to pay off debt” (SN 3/21). Just so you don’t get brainwashed by what you read, President Bush is paying off the national debt.

OPINION

No on cell bill

A proposed state House bill aimed at increasing penalties for people talking on cellular phones during traffic violations is unnecessary and should not be supported by the House. State Rep.
