Letter to the Editor: Best Way to Protest Shapiro is to Ignore Him

By The Daily

September 27, 2017

Ben Shapiro’s planned appearance sponsored by the Young Americans for Freedom Chapter has been the worthy subject of ire.  He regularly uses his pulpit to marginalize LGBTQ+ and racial minorities and is clearly deserving of the scorn he receives.  His appearance begs the question: How do we shut hi...

Letter to the Editor: Response from The Hershey Company

By The Daily

March 24, 2017

I saw Alisa Patience's recent letter titled, "Boycott Hershey's and Child Slavery."  I wanted to share a broader perspective about the issue and what we at Hershey are doing about it. First, Alisa's statement that "Hershey's has children as young as five working for them" is simply not true.  We do...

Letter to the Editor: People Deserve Equal Treatment, Not Ideas

February 17, 2017

President Donald Trump’s attempted immigration ban targeting Muslims has rightly evoked widespread counter-responses. Add to this outcry the voices of many students, faculty and administrators at Utah’s institutions of higher learning http://bit.ly/2kDCOtV.

The University of Utah’s strong and appropriate...

On September 10th, the Chronicle published a piece arguing the University’s parking pass program is too expensive and provides an inadequate number of spaces.
