- Rakowski misinterprets argument (By TODD DAVID WHITMORE )
In a Sept. 30 letter to The Observer, economics professor James Rakowski cited my references to the focus in Catholic social teaching on the problem of the gap between rich and poor and concluded that such a focus "seems to disparage the focus on improving the lot of the least well off" and thus is "extreme." This is a severe charge; it is also a misplaced one.

- 'Coming Out Day' sends wrong message (LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
I am writing this letter to express my exteme disapproval and how disturbed I feel at the display of "Gay Pride" at Saint Mary's on Monday, Oct. 11. As a Saint Mary's student, I take pride in our Catholic teachings, values and morals. All my life I have been taught to live as a true Catholic. So in coming to Saint Mary's College, I felt assured and satisfied that my previous teachings would be supported and reinforced because of the religious environment of Saint Mary's.
- Students should be above binge drinking (LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
Returning to campus for the Arizona State game last weekend, I picked up a copy of The Observer to refresh memories of campus life. What I found was not so refreshing. As a grandparent with four grandsons, I was strongly favoring a Notre Dame education because of the values — both moral and ethical — that I remember being taught here. After reading the article on tailgating, I am not so sure.
- Overpopulation scare lacks compassion (LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
In response to Ms. Brooke Warner's letter "Dangers of overpopulation must be heeded for survival," I wish to proudly claim my status as one of 10 children and denounce her uncompassionate views. After reading her critique of the usefulness of foreign aid, I was insulted by her claim that help now (often in the form of "extra grain") simply leads to larger issues and increased suffering in the future. I presume that Ms. Warner has not gone to bed hungry often. She probably does not take time between classes to put food on the table. Whether or not she has been confronted with extreme levels of poverty, I do not know. If so, I contend that she has not absorbed these experiences.
