Letter to the Editor: Listen carefully

To the Editor:

Kyle Sheehan calls himself "fiscally conservative" and "a non-interventionist." But, Donald Trump has called for a huge increase in military spending in the tens of billions of dollars. And, he said he would do that by cutting the safety net. Trump repeatedly said he supports the use of torture against "our enemies." And, he has boasted that he would "do what it takes" to wipe out ISIS. Do torture and "do what it takes" sound non-interventionist?

Listen carefully to what this candidate is saying.

Make low-income students feel welcome at Rice

Sometimes as I walk around campus, I have to remind myself that I belong here and this is my school. I think that Rice is not truly mine because I can’t afford my own education. While I am incredibly grateful for the financial aid I receive and the opportunity I’ve been given to attend Rice, I am often reminded that my financial situation is uncommon at this university.
