Letter to the editor: Bond and determined to write

To the Editor: In last week's issue of The Mirror, I was surprised to find an attack against Michael Bond's writing. Ironically, this letter followed Dean Reed's call to raise the bar on the content contained in The Mirror. Personally, I am a big fan of the newspaper, though I have to acknowledge that it does not encompass events that occur outside the Fairfield community.

Letter to the Editor: And while we’re at it, Cheer up

To the Editor: I'm requesting that the staff of The Mirror assign Michael Bond a topic lacking despair and bitterness in favor of, dare I say it, happiness. As his many readers will attest, anger obviously falls within Mr. Bond's niche. I feel that as a publication of a Jesuit university that encourages the development of well-rounded students, The Mirror should follow suit and encourage the development of well-rounded writers on its staff.

When I read the article "Diving into the Spotlight" one sentence caught my eye especially, "Penwell has been the top diver for the Stags this season.

Letter to the editor: Praise for Fairfield students

To the Editor: I was just thrilled to see Fairfield University students attending the League of Women's Voters Meeting on Tuesday at the First Church.

Letter to the editor: And lead us not into church rhetoric

To the Editor: I would appreciate an opportunity to respond to Mr. Teti's question. He wanted to know if I ever heard about the separation of church and state. Mr. Teti, I do realize the importance of the separation of church and state. I also do not want my religious convictions mixed with politics.

Letter to the editor: Party for a cause

To the Editor: I applaud the students at the beach who raised money for charity at parties they had this weekend. There was one on Friday for Breast Cancer Research and one on Saturday for the Mark Fisher Foundation. The residents asked for a small donation from students coming in their house to party, much like other schools do, but not for profit.

Letter to the Editor:Nickeled and dimed here at Fairfield

Letters to the Editor represent the opinions of the writer and not those of the Mirror To The Editor: Why do townhouse residents at Fairfield seem to get the short end of the deal when it comes to living arrangements? I pay a total of around $4,500 for room and board to live with 4 other people for one semester not including utilities which I have calculated about $100-200 per person.
