In response to the two mass e-mails sent to every MSU student and staff member the last two weeks, urging them to e-mail their state Legislature to reduce cuts made to our university, I would like to propose the following solution to the school's financial problems: more parking fines.
Tom Amon's letter "SN Opinion Page has liberal biases" concerning The State News opinion section was patently outrageous. Amon claims that "the opinion pieces are overwhelmingly written by far-left liberals, lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender members or someone slamming conservatives." All State News readers should know that Amon's associative stereotyping of lesbians and gays as "liberals" is far from true.
As a Department of Police and Public Safety employee working security at the MSU-University of Michigan game, I find Valerie Fournier's letter "'U', police should communicate more" personally offensive and full of false statements. First, to "someone who has been to every home football game for the past three years," Fournier and other Spartan football veterans should know better than to bring prohibited items into the stadium (which includes larger purses). Not only is it posted on homefootball.msu.edu, outside the stadium and broadcast on local TV, there also were security personnel warning patrons before they got to the gates.
