  Letter: SU campout too in-tentsPDF files may take a moment to load

Holding a tent city during midterm exams and just when it is getting cold is pretty brainless. How many people do you think are going to turn up for that? Or are you doing it on purpose so that when people don't turn up you can say that it isn't as big of an issue as you thought and that people aren't interested?

  Letter: Appalled by anti-abortionistsPDF files may take a moment to load

Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas has a peculiar notion of war and tragedy. They believe God is upset with the U.S. for its tolerance toward homosexuality and that's why American soldiers are coming home from the Middle East in coffins. In protest of America's errant ways, members of the church picket the funerals of fallen soldiers to stand among the newly widowed and childless and wave 'God Hates Fags' banners. But don't tell them they're crazy, or the blood of children will be on your hands.

[Re: "PC Leadership Candidates Face Off," Katy Anderson, Oct. 6, 2006]

While a recent Herald column suggests that Lyle Oberg may be making up ground in the PC leadership race with his plainspokenness, I firmly believe that he will never be an appropriate premier for this province because of certain actions taken--or rather, not taken--as education minister.

  Letter: Survey? What survey?PDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet, [Re: "Maclean's wrong?" Letter, Sept. 21, 2006]

So let's see if I've got this right: Roman Cooney is criticizing Maclean's for conducting a survey of U of C graduates, despite the fact that Maclean's never conducted a survey of U of C graduates. According to Cooney, the existence of this non-existent survey of U of C grads "is one of many reasons why at least 21 universities have declined to be part of this year's rankings." But of course. The logic is iron clad.

Editor, the Gauntlet, [Re: "Professor wins suit against U of C," Darlene Seto, Sept. 28, 2006]

I am a professor emerita of business law at Virginia Commonwealth University, and professor Peter Bowal has long been a respected colleague and friend of mine. He has brought much pride and many accolades to the University of Calgary, and I have always been honoured to know him as a friend.

[Re: "Warped," cartoon, Sept. 21, 2006]

I have always been a firm believer of freedom of speech and the importance of being allowed to express our own opinions. I often looked to the publication of a school newspaper as a shining example of this freedom of speech.
