Its time to move on. I am writing in response to Matthew Hagboms letter plastering former President Clinton with accusations about pardoning Marc Rich (Clintons pardon was questionable, SN 2/15). What a sad world we live in when we only look at politics with a negative eye.
Michigans low rating in womens reproductive health is not surprising. The National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, an organization that conducts an annual study on womens reproductive health, gave Michigan an F rating and ranked the state 45th in the nation.
I am writing this letter to you to talk about RHAs proposed tax increase. I want everyone to know the $3 tax increase is not to spend the money on ourselves, but to spend the money on our constituents. First, there is legislation coming to the floor to kick an additional dollar back into the halls.
This is a response to Block off flooded paths on campus (SN 2/13). I thought America reached its lowest intelligence level when I heard the XFL was the highest-rated program its opening weekend - then I read this letter. How many other people did you see struggling for their lives in the river?
The MSU Board of Trustees unanimous decision to indefinitely uphold Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a holiday is commendable.For the past three years, MLK Day has been observed at the university strictly on a trial basis.
Believing that people, though sometimes stupid, are basically good on the inside has made going through life a little easier for me. Believing when someone hurts or offends me, they truly might not realize how what they said affected me, has made me a more forgiving person. And believing there is a difference between being racist and being unaware has made me realize The State News has a problem. On Monday, we ran an ad for a sororitys self-defense class.
I agree 100 percent with Angela Poks letter that stated the depiction of the perpetrator in the self-defense ad was offensive (Self-defense ad offensive, wrong, SN 2/14). Although I did not assume the man was black, he was obviously a man of color - which could be Latino, Asian, Arabic or black.
The women of Alpha Xi Delta would like to apologize to Angela Pok and other members of the Michigan State community who may have taken offense at the drawing used in our ad for a self-defense workshop (Self-defense ad offensive, wrong, SN 2/14). The drawing was chosen to represent a general male image, not a member of a particular racial or ethnic group.
I am writing in response to Angela Pok and the case of extreme over-sensitivity she seems to display (Self-defense ad offensive, wrong, SN 2/14). She declared The State News made a highly racist move in allowing Alpha Xi Delta to run an ad for a self-defense class which depicts a black man as a potential perpetrator of assault.
The Democratic Party in general has turned their heads with a number of former President Bill Clinton-related scandals, but the Marc Rich pardon may be harder to conquer and spin off as just another ploy by the conservative right to take down Clinton. As of Jan.
