Letter to the editor

Leonard Del Rosario, De Anza student

February 2, 2015

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

Robert A. Dahlquist

November 3, 2014

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...

Brandon P. Hansen, De Anza student

October 6, 2014

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...

Jaime Johnson, De Anza Sudent

February 11, 2014

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...

Letter to the Editor – Jan. 27, 2014

Will Wang, De Anza Student

January 26, 2014

I am a student at De Dirty College. I mean De Anza College. Every day as I walk from the parking lot to my classes, the parking structure’s floor is covered with trash and filth! I can spot meal bags and wrappers from local fast food restaurants scatted all over the floor. It is filthy and disgusting...

Protect against sexual assault

December 2, 2013

In wake of the recent alleged sexual assault on campus, many students are left feeling unsafe, and even a little on edge. In light of this situation, most people should be aware that unfortunate situations like this do occur, and it could even happen to you. The most valuable lesson, a person can take...

Tea Party positions defended by math prof

December 2, 2013

To hear Carla Arango tell the story, the Tea Party members of Congress are extremist, close-minded (sic), antiquated, and uncompromising. Given the vitriol that permeated her editorial, you might imagine she also thinks they are evil, beat their children, and eat little puppies. What was most disturbing...

Transgender students’ safety important

Stacie Rowe

December 2, 2013

I was disheartened this week upon reading the article Serena Scaglione wrote on AB 1266. As a member of the LGBTQ community, it was painful to see this paper play into heteronormativity and the inherently oppressive gender binary system. I found the claim that allowing gender-nonconforming students...

Black Friday ain’t all doom and gloom

December 2, 2013

Reading Stephanie Chao’s opinion piece on how black Friday is essentially destroying the spirit and value of thanksgiving, I would like to give a different perspective on it. As a poor college student and coming from a pretty poor family, if I could get my mother that blender she always wanted but...

Letter to the Editor: Jeffrey Callison

Jeffrey Callison, Press Secretary, CDCR

November 12, 2013

There were several errors of fact in Jay Serrano’s recent piece about prison crowding and Realignment: 1. California does not “need to release 9,600 inmates by the end of the year.” The current deadline is actually the end of February 2014. Also, the difference between the current population...
