Letter to the Editor: Listen carefully

By Maurice Wolfthal     9/13/16 10:32pm

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.

A call to revive, revamp and maintain Rice culture(s)

When we ran for our Student Association executive team positions and defined our platforms, we did not anticipate the arrival of COVID-19. Due to these unusual circumstances, we as members of the executive team have been rapidly thrust into our roles. We have relayed student concerns to administrators and have made an effort to amplify student voices as much as possible. We have been strategizing how we can best communicate with all of the Rice community during the coming weeks as we resume our virtual classwork. But throughout it all, one question has remained on our minds: How can we establish and maintain an intimate, engaging Rice culture and connection while members of the Rice community are so physically distant from each other?
