Thanksgiving break is a treasured time for many students relax and recuperate with their families after a long semester. But for some, it is also a time of worrying about how they are going to get home, and even get to see their families. These concerns may not be on the radar of every Baylor student, but they are especially important for those of us who are not from Texas and have a long way to travel home.
I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the way the Lariat covered the events that occurred 50 years ago when President Kennedy was in Texas. That was a significant coming-of-age occurrence for the Lariat staff at that time.
My impression is that the current Lariat staff keeps the tradition of excellence alive. I know the Lariat has won numerous state-wide awards.
We had some good times, some bad times and some times that felt like the aftereffects of a Gut Pak.
You were merciless, Floyd — beyond merciless. In my lifetime, you ate former Baylor coach Kevin Steele, skin and bone, as Baylor went 1-31 in the Big 12 conference during his tenure. You then, like the Sirens of ancient Greece, coaxed Guy Morriss, the deemed “savior” on his motorcycle, into your depths, only to devour his very soul and sabotage what had been an up-and-coming coaching career (If anyone can get a hold of Guy Morriss’ motorcycle, we should burn it in the final game).
In his usual inflammatory language, Leonard Pitts again demonizes a system that has done wonders to eradicate poverty in his column “Free market unduly hurts poor,” which ran on Wednesday.
Pitts first quotes from the Bible to make the absurd claim that redistribution by the government is somehow sanctioned by religion.
As much as I agree with the spirit of Danny Huizinga’s Nov. 19 column titled “Employer religious freedom at risk with Obamacare laws,” his argument is difficult to swallow.
“Since when are business owners not allowed to make the decisions for their company?’” Huizinga rhetorically asks. The answer is that business owners have never had free reign over their companies.
In response to Danny Huizinga’s Nov. 12 column titled “Some conservatives amiss on death penalty,” Conservatives Concerned About The Death Penalty is just a regular anti-death penalty group calling itself conservative.
It uses the same deceptions as all of the regular anti-death penalty groups because they are one.
I am a Sooner fan working at OU with the College of Liberal Studies. As I watched Thursday night’s game, I saw some impressive football and I hope that you will do the same thing to Texas but even worse. That being said, I thought you might enjoy a Sooner lament, with an ode to Edgar Allen Poe.
In their natural habitat, bears are curious and energetic animals who spend their time exploring diverse terrain, foraging for a wide variety of foods and digging in soft earth, brush and leaves. Bears are highly intelligent and capable of empathy and a wide range of feelings, including fear, joy and playfulness.
The Baylor Line is the core of Baylor spirit and is an organization composed entirely of new students.
The Line, established in 1970, represents the commitment of the entire Baylor Nation to support and cheer on the Bears.
This Thursday, the Baylor football team will play in one of the biggest football games in the history of Floyd Casey Stadium.
I am writing to congratulate and encourage Wesley Hodges and the Student Senate’s action to support Baylor’s conservative and Christian standards.
Baylor stands as a traditional icon — a beacon in an often otherwise dark realm. Those sending personal attacks to this young man for his stance against changing the policy and traditions of a private institution should re-evaluate their own position for they are perpetuating the very aspect of which they accuse him.
