LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Manhattan College Student Body President speaks out on the challenges of programming

To the Editor: I enjoyed Jen Malcom's column on the 200 Nights program. We have a 200 Nights event at Manhattan College. Though ours is much less fancy and costly than a senior cruise, we too regularly struggle with defining a "true senior" and accommodating all entitled seniors at events both economically and with some manner of entertainment other than alcohol.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Praise for Fairfield support staff

To the Editor: If what I have to say is overanalyzed, it might well lose its meaning. Here is a simple matter: I am profoundly impressed by the supporting staff of our university. I have worked in many places before and in other universities, and have never experienced such exceptionally cordial treatment by the supporting staff.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: IRC is anything but exclusive

To the Editor : In regard to Meredith McKenna's article about the Ignatian Residential College - wow. I haven't heard a tone this whiny since Jack didn't get to dance with Kevin Bacon on Will ' Grace. She obviously missed the entire point of the Ignatian College.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Beach house residents thank community

To the Editor: We would like to thank the entire Fairfield University Community, especially the Fairfield Athletic Department, for their support and generous donations after our devastating house fire on Reef Road on Monday, Sept. 8, 2003.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Punishment doesn’t fit the crime

To the Editor: This upcoming weekend, my six housemates and I will be downgrading our housing status form the spacious townhouses into the humbling rooms of Claver Hall. The infractions that caused us to get the boot occurred before the school year started, even before the Mirror's crime beat started their tally for the year.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Stop pointing fingers, search for peace

To the Editor: When I first read Ethan Fry's Sept. 11th article, I contemplated responding to The Mirror immediately, but I felt my comments would be mainly unappreciated, as they would just iterate everything Ethan wrote. However, after reading the previous letter to the editor, I feel that it is necessary for me to give my two cents.

Letter to the editor: Power- The real price of war

To the Editor: Power is an elusive commodity. But like the dollar, it is essentially the currency of politics. A state must secure it, build it up, whenever possible, but invest it with the greatest possible care. As a teacher of international relations, I consider myself a student of power politics, a realist with regard to power's value and uses.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Further debate on Iraqi sanctions

To the Editor: The issue of sanctions against Iraq is one where thoughtful people often hold opposite views. I described the sanctions on Iraq as an atrocity for which the US holds significant responsibility. The consistent, reliable figures from UNICEF and from public health experts hold that something on the order of half a million Iraqi children under the age of five are dead as a result of the sanctions.
