Letter to Editor: We can learn from inspirational students who live on $1 a day

BY NIKHIL KALOTHIA

The Daily’s recent article about students living on only $1 per day for food for an entire month was very inspirational (Cheap eats: students set $1 food budget for charity, 11/24/2008). It takes a lot of courage and dedication to set out on a difficult and very demanding task like these students did.

Letter to the Editor: A hopeful message in the wake of Mumbai attacks

BY AKSHAYA VARGHESE

In the wake of India's struggle for independence, Rabindranath Tagore, one of India's greatest poets, wrote about the image he sought for India in his poem “Where the mind is without fear.” In the aftermath of the attacks in Mumbai, these are bittersweet words for India but still words worth remembering. For so many of us, Tagore's poem is our plea.

Letter to the Editor: Giving thanks for Michigan football

BY ADAM MAEL

I love Michigan. I love the people I’ve met here, the experiences I’ve had here and, most of all, I love Michigan football. Not 10 minutes after the clock ran out against Ohio State, my Facebook newsfeed was littered with comments like “Rich Rod is blowing up all kinds of records” and “What a fabulous record-breaking season” on their statuses.

BY DANIEL HOROWITZ

In response to the Daily’s recent editorial about the forum co-sponsored by the American Movement for Israel and Students Allied for Freedom and Equality (Extending the olive branch, 11/20/2008), I’d like to commend the two student groups for working together in order to foster dialogue and growth.

Letter to the Editor: UPZ deserves credit for Israel-Palestine forum, too

BY AARON WILLIS

I want to express my appreciation for the Daily taking notice of the significance of the American Movement for Israel and the Students Allied For Freedom and Equality sponsoring an event together.

Letter to the Editor: Daily should play part in informing student voters

BY MEGAN MADISON

It’s hard, though not impossible, to increase voter turnout, get things done that matter to the student body and be transparent about our governance without the Daily’s coverage, be it critical or supportive. That’s why it is unfortunate that LSA Student Government’s election was completely ignored by the Daily.

Letter to the Editor: Hamas unrepresentative of Palestinian opinion

BY FAHAD FARUQI

Ari Parritz’s column Friday — although well argued and well reasoned — failed to provide any justifiable reason why the Israeli Defense Force is blockading humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip (One Qassam too many, 11/20/2008).

Letter to the Editor: For second year, Daily misses Transgender Day of Awareness

BY MEGHAN ROTARY

Without even trying to seek out news on the Transgender Day of Remembrance, it came to me in at least five different ways on Thursday. I got e-mails from friends and student groups about it, received notifications and messages through MySpace and Facebook, saw some stickers around my house and heard coverage of it on Free Speech Radio News.
