The recent article about De Anza students calling for “hate speech” restrictions is just another in a troubling series of events, starting with Missouri students and faculty trying to prevent journalists from covering their events to Yale students signing a petition to abolish the First Amendment (t...

Letters to the editor: Anti petition opinion writer should resign

The use of the bullying hate word “moronic” in the title and language used in the opinion piece by no less than the managing editor and bully-in-chief Jay Serrano, is so unprofessional and irresponsible that I call upon the De Anza community to demand Serrano resign his position. It’s shocking...

Regarding the front page opinion piece “All-gender restrooms: Why not?” by Duane Soubirous in the Nov. 16 issue of La Voz: It was not surprising to me that this article was written by a male student. I was particularly struck by the phrase “I enjoyed the ability to hold a conversation with my...

I am writing to express my concerns about limited job opportunities for international students at De Anza College. I am a De Anza international student and I really enjoy the way things work here in the school environment. International students are restricted to on-campus employment and are not permitted to wor...

Texas takes second amendment too far

Texas takes second amendment too far

Dear Editor, I agree with your editorial on the new Texas Gun Law. As a liberal Republican I am appalled that the legislature would pass and the governor would sign into law a bill allowing a person to carry a concealed handgun on to the University of Texas campus. Are they out of their minds? The last thing I want is for someone other then a trained peace office...

A call for political action against Bill Cosby when he speaks at Flint

Dear Editor, I see online that Bill Cosby is now scheduled to appear at the Flint Center on Sunday, June 7. Cosby has been accused of drugging and attacking girls and women for decades (1965-2008 so far). While it may be too late to criminally prosecute or civilly sue Cosby, why would community...

Dear Editor, As a recent college student graduate, I found it hard to budget the bills that I needed to pay in my college career. The minimum wage is a bare minimum that college students can hardly live off of. Raising the minimum wage can rectify this issue; however, our government lacks the initiative...

Letter to the Editor: Jubilee solution would eliminate student loan crisis

Dear Letters Editor: Following the Lehman banking debacle of 2008, the government sponsored bailout of Too Big to Fail banks did nothing to stimulate the economy because 70 percent of the economy is consumer driven. The only way to stimulate the economy is to eliminate consumer debt. The U.S. economy...

I grabbed a copy of your paper as I headed home from my first day of class. Scanning the front page, I was intrigued by the “By the Numbers” box at the bottom. I was looking forward to reading your “ANALYSIS: APPLE EVENT AT FLINT CENTER” once I got home. Imagine my disappointment upon finishing...

I’m writing this letter in reference to the article that was published in the Jan 27 issue of La Voz Weekly entitled “Online classes not revolutionary” by Krystal Alvarado. I feel that the author had a negative experience with a single online class, and has dismissed the entire online education...
