- Take Showers, Save the Planet Jeff Langan / Lula's Journal
Environmentalists, members of the Green Party and Progressives take note. We should start taking cold showers. This is no joke. We have a serious pollution problem on our hands. Power plants pump thousands of pollutants into the air each year. This causes smog and acid rain that kills plants and animals. It ruins plants' immune systems, making them more susceptible to life-threatening diseases. It ruins lakes and rivers, the natural habitat of fish. Trout and salmon are being born with half developed gills, three eyes, and two tails. It might even hurt humans.
- SMC leadership too quiet Letter to the Editor
Both the campuses of Saint Mary's and Notre Dame have been reading about the Notre Dame administration banning GALA's ads in The Observer. We've read where President Malloy stands on this issue. My question is this: Where does the administration of SMC stand on this issue? The Observer speaks for both campuses — I paid my twelve dollars at the beginning of the year. I'd like an answer to my question; as a student here, I deserve one. This is my education and I'd like to know the parameters of it. Will I be allowed to explore all avenues of thought or will I be confined to the administration's mode of thought? But I'm not even asking SMC to condemn ND's [and now the Observer's] policy, nor am I asking SMC to condone it. All I'm asking for is a decision, so I know where I stand on my campus. SMC has a responsibility to its women — the mission of this school is to educate well-rounded women, to show women that they can make competant decisions for themselves. What kind of an example is an administration that refuses to stand up and speak out on an issue that is central to both campuses?
- Petty complainers lose sight of true suffering Letter to the Editor
Please forgive me for the reactionary nature of this article. Please forgive its seemingly ad hominem appearance as well. It is not intended as an attack on any one individual author. Nor is it an attack on an entire student body. It is simply an expression of my concern for and dismay at the superficial and ungrateful nature of writing that I have often seen elicited from members of a student body that is so blessed to be at this school.
- Administration needs to open prejudiced eyes Letter to the Editor
It is time the University of Notre Dame opened its prejudiced eyes. The Catholic Church is NOT against homosexuality. The Church encourages gays and lesbians to have gay and lesbian friendships. What the Church is against is any sex that is not for procreational purposes and takes place outside of marriage.
