Letters to the editor

During my four years at Michigan, I saw my fair share of the Daily. I saw stories about sports teams, the Greek community, religious communities and the University administration. Even as an alum, I try to browse the electronic version a few times a week.

How many letters a day is the Daily getting about our football team? I would like to think the number has risen to 107,501.
I am starting to get very tired of the media field day surrounding our football season. However, I am more disappointed with some fans’ reactions. The viewpoint Wednesday by University alum Josh Weingast was a prime example of these two issues (A message for Rich Rod, 11/19/2008).

Dear fans of the greatest rivalry in football, I am writing to you on behalf of Ohio State's Sportsmanship Council in preparation for the greatest football game of the year, the Ohio State vs. Michigan game.

After reading The Statement Wednesday, I’ve got to say that it doesn’t seem right for a public university to employ its students as telemarketer fundraisers (About Campus: Taking abuse at Telefund, 11/18/2008).
Two Daily readers respond to Wednesday's Statement story criticizing Baits.

The WCBN-FM executive staff would like to publicly apologize for the racial insensitivity of the cover art featured on the station’s Fall 2008 Program Guide.

There is no doubt that Rep. John Dingell (D – Mich.) is an experienced and honorable member of the U.S. House of Representatives. But that doesn’t mean, as yesterday’s news story suggested, that challenges to the congressman’s chairmanship are unfair and baseless (Dingell to fight for committee chair, 11/19/2008).

When it comes to spending other people’s money, the Daily is awfully generous. That was the case in its editorial yesterday about a bailout for the Big Three (Bailing out our future, 11/18/2008).

There was some trickery that took place in Michael Passman’s arts column yesterday about the female cast of “Saturday Night Live” (The funny females of ‘SNL’, 11/18/2008).
Letters to the editor
Letters are usually less than 300 words and are edited for length, grammar, style, accuracy and clarity before publication. Letters from University students, faculty, staff and administrators will be given priority over others.
The Daily is always looking for students interested in writing, journalism, photography, multimedia, business or Web development to join its staff. Everyone is welcome.
