Letter: The Zucconi Fellowship lives on

To the Editor:I appreciated The Herald's recent coverage about the Zucconi Fellowship and its value for many graduates of Brown ("Fellowship suspended due to lack of funds," Oct. 1). The article reported that the Zucconi would not be offered this year. I am writing to let you know that we have very ...

Letter: Academia necessitates inquiry into religion

To the Editor:There have been several interesting pieces in recent weeks regarding religion. Sadly, Mike Johnson's column ("The two-thousand-year (approximately) debate," Sept. 29) attempted to sidestep this important issue altogether. He and others have every right to remain "secure" in their personal ...

Letter: Animals are people, too

To the Editor:I am writing in response to a recent editorial ("Animal wrongs," Sept. 29). While I much appreciate the publicity and favorable review given to the Liberation Project, I found several of the article's basic assumptions problematic. Specifically, this piece treats the notion that non-human ...

Letter: Debate is alive and well

To the Editor:I was delighted to see Anthony Badami's '11 recent column ("A forum for intellectual pugilism," Sept. 21) extol the virtues of campus debate; even going so far as to encourage a debate tournament among the Brown student body.  However, I would be remiss if I did not tell Brown students ...

Letter: The truth about Fair Trade

To the Editor:We are writing in response to Will Wray's '10 recent column ("Fair by whose rules?" Sept. 17). It contains a number of inaccuracies which need to be corrected. More broadly, though, we want to thank Wray for starting a conversation about Fair Trade. The concept has lost a little vitality ...

Letter: In support of young activists

To the Editor:We were dismayed to see Mike Johnson '11 write on Friday that "the youth of this nation pat themselves on the back, sink back into the very apathy of which we're accused" ("The lost power of Barack Obama," Sept. 18). If he believes that youth activism is dead in the Age of Obama, he has ...

Letter: URL citations not the solution

To the Editor: Regarding Tuesday's op-ed ("Rethinking citations," Sept. 15): Dan Davidson's '11 point about hyperlinked citations is a good one but in a sense moot, since most citation style sheets I'm familiar with would require you to use a URL for any online source you cite anyway. I would take ...

To the Editor: Swine flu article misses the point

Your recent article on H1N1 influenza ("U. preps for widespread H1N1 cases," Sept. 8), while informative, fails to discuss the flu's epidemiological aspects. First, the most serious danger is that H1N1 flu will mutate to a more virulent form, which could very well occur through interaction with the ...

Corrections

The editorial in Tuesday's Herald ("Another bump in the wall," April 21) incorrectly stated that Rhode Island teachers are not currently under contract. In fact, Providence teachers are not currently under contract.An article in last Thursday's Herald ("Staff hope for increased child care," April 16) ...
