TCU photo distasteful

November 17, 2009

Editor:The picture that graced the front page of Monday's edition was so in-your-face queer that it offended me. I think our team played a well-fought game against one of the fastest offensive teams in the country, and to humiliate our team, which I still consider one of the best teams in America, and th...

Chronicle should help writers build skills

November 12, 2009

Editor:I used to work at The Chronicle many, many years ago, and in fact my time there had more impact on my career path and the joys of my later life than any other single event or decision.

Editor:In response to Jonathan Deesing's article ("Uneducated opinions on therapy hurt gays," Sept. 28) I would like to point out that homosexuality was classified as a disorder up until 1974 in the APA's Diagnostics and Statistical Manual.
