In his recent letter to the editor (‘Problematic freshmen,’ Nov. 20), I feel that Martin Morales is mistaken in his assessment of COM 102. As a freshman in the College of Communication, as well as a prisoner of COM 102, my classmates and I were overjoyed to see an article and editorial addressing the injustice we feel as we suffer through ‘How to BU.’
Letters to Editor
As a teaching fellow for COM 102, I’d like to address a few of the issues mentioned in your article (‘New Class Called Inconvenient By Some’, Nov. 19) and editorial (‘MOM 102′) surrounding the course.
After reading your editorial (‘Union speechless,’ Nov. 18, p. 6), I want to clear up some misconceptions.
While the Boston University campus seems to be a safe unit that spans Commonwealth Avenue, it is important to remember that ours is not a closed campus (‘Brookline’s Baddest,’ Nov. 17, p. 6).
On Nov. 4, California promoted inequality. Voters passed Proposition 8 to ban gay marriage, institutionalizing discrimination in the state’s constitution.
The liberal and anti-religious sentiments of the editorial board of The Daily Free Press, in ‘One Step Backward’ (Nov. 6, p. 8), remind the world yet again how often people misunderstand the idea of separation of church and state.
Congratulations on your historic victory. Your remarkable achievement has made us all proud to be citizens of our great country.
I am afraid the Daily Free Press has swung a bit to the right. At my first glance of the front page, I noticed that half of the front page stories were not congratulatory of Barack Obama, but mourning the loss of John McCain. Would it not have been more appropriate to focus on the win, not the loss?
I am deeply disappointed by the Daily Free Press’ coverage of the election, specifically that the stories focused only on Republicans and John McCain supporters who were upset with President-elect Obama’s clear and decisive victory.
Your fine article on Elie Wiesel’s speech (‘Wiesel week, p. 1′) in the Tuesday, Oct. 28 issue of The Daily Free Press was excellent.’ But there is one glaring mistake.
