[Re: "The Muslim," Sarah Malik, Nov. 9, 2006]

In the spirit of equality please provide for the Jewish and Christian communities on campus to write as extensively on their self-understanding as you have the Muslims.

[Re: "U of C disputes Maclean's rankings," Katy Anderson, Nov. 9, 2006]

You guys did a more thorough and fair-minded story on our university rankings than either of the national newspapers.

With appreciation,

  Letter: Hooray for hallways!PDF files may take a moment to load

Hallways and corridors are spaces designed to move people. Geographers call these "non-places," designed so that people do not loiter and linger. Non-places should encourage and facilitate movement by being nondescript. I used to walk freely and quickly through such spaces on my daily routes through the Earth Science and Social Sciences buildings. Now I have "taken" these non-places, following the invitation of the university, and am helping to turn them into places.

Re: TLFs, Nov. 2, 2006]

I just wanted express my frustration and disappointment in your choosing to include our cut and effectively useless TLF in last week's paper.

Not only did it undermine the efforts of the students who worked on the event meant to be advertised, but it trivialized those efforts because of the manner in which you chose to present it.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I am writing to you because I believe the state of the ladies' locker room in the Kinesiology Complex is worthy of some investigative reporting.

In the toilet area, taps spray water in all directions, leaving the vanity and those using the taps soaked in water. At least one of the stall doors does not close properly and has been this way for weeks. Metal containers installed for the disposal of used feminine hygiene products are also falling off the wall in a number of stalls.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I am co-events commissioner for the Dedicated Otaku Anime club, a Students' Union sanctioned club. We have been an SU club for nine or 10 years, and our mandate is to promote awareness and acceptance of asian culture through media, primarily using Japanese animation and television serials.

Re: "Ralph Klein begins new career as Mount Royal College instructor," Katy Anderson, Nov. 2, 2006.

For someone so enamoured with research, dean Kathleen Scherf should have considered doing some before commenting on the newest endowed chair at Mount Royal.

"Mount Royal serves a different clientele than we do," she sniffed upon hearing of the appointment. "We hire scholars, people who do research and have PhDs"
