Letter to the Editor: An apology is in order

Dear Carroll News, I would like to make a correction to the otherwise brilliantly written White Stripes eulogy of newly-appointed music critic Noah Lamprecht. It is primarily an issue of simple semantics, but nonetheless should be clarified. I must first preface the correction by stating that for someone that claims to be “eternally proud” of…

Letter to the Editor: Facemashed response

esty International, and more than 20,000 other charities have used the Facebook Causes app to raise over $10 million. The Egyptian people were able overthrow 30 years of autocratic rule in part by using Facebook. A first year student who made the ‘Juan’ Carroll ‘Dan Loster’ Facebook profile used Facebook to reduce 64 female John…

Letter to the Editor: Facemashed not something to ‘lol’ about

Dear John Carroll Community, In last week’s issue of The Carroll News, they featured the “Facemashed” article. I was especially struck by the article because also on the front page was the story regarding Andrea Teodosio, an individual who brought great things to our campus and touched the lives of so many. She was truly…

Letter to the Editor: Facebook discrimination

Like the rest of the student body, this Dan Loster situation has really gotten me upset. I don’t get it. What nut would create a profile to vote on the hottest girls at “Juan Carroll” and not friend request me? I know I’m not the hottest guy at John Carroll, but I think I can…

Letter to the Editor: Student Union elections

Last Thursday the Student Body voted for the new Student Union Executive Board. The voice of the student body was heard loud and clear. The question I pose is what group of people was listening to their cries? The group of candidates running for election to represent the students seemed to be very lacking.  The…

Letter to the Editor: Standing up for Democrats

With all due respect to The Carroll News, last week’s “Political Voices” section was incredibly one-sided.  Alix Audi, who wrote for Democrats, offered a balanced assessment of races while Nick Tribuzzo wrote a completely partisan piece that is something you would read on FoxNews.com.  Here is what should have run for the Democratic side to…

Letter to the Editor: The most impressive midges

Let me begin by stating that I am a long-time supporter of this award-winning newspaper and appreciate all the hard work put forth from everyone involved that allows this paper to be made available week after week. However, I must comment on the inappropriateness of the, “That’s What See Said” column that appeared in the…

Letter to the Editor: Blue Streaks unite

Being a student-athlete on John Carroll’s campus is a rather popular thing. Walking anywhere around campus, you will run into at least one or two athletes. Tennis, baseball, soccer, softball, volleyball, basketball, cross country, track and football athletes might range in athletic talent, but we all have something in common. We all compete in one…

Letter to the Editor: Quiet in the library

I wonder if at upcoming academic committee meetings for next year, suggestions will be entertained about serving alcohol in the school library. You know, a typical bar set up to be squeezed in right next to the expresso counter where students can slam shots and have specially-designed mugs filled to the brim with frosty goodness.…

YourView: A Call to Action: Relay for Life

First, I would like to congratulate all those students and FSA involved in the planning and production of John Carroll University’s Relay For Life 2010. Their countless hours of hard work and effort placed into one 18-hour event raised more than $38,000.  I honestly enjoyed the event, but I was thoroughly disappointed with the John…

Letter to the Editor: Wake up and grow up

As a John Carroll University alumnus, I was extremely disappointed to discover you published Mr. Bob Seeholzer’s bitter tirade about reverse sexism (3/25/10 issue).   It was of no more intellectual substance than a drunken Facebook blog (which, it seems, is about the highest form of communication I see many young men and women possess).  Perhaps…

Letter to the Editor: Fall conspiracy?

I thought the John Carroll administration said they don’t sweep things under the rug. From what I’ve seen recently, they most definitely do.  Literally. Fall has always been my favorite season. Besides the much needed break from the scorching heat and uncomfortable humidity in non-air-conditioned dorms, there’s just something unexplainable about the earthy colors and…

Letter to the Editor: Exposing yourself

I like to gloat as much as anyone, and in my years of being a borderline egomaniac, I’ve learned an important lesson: if you are going to talk big, you have to walk big. That being said, I feel that Maximilian Flessner failed to sufficiently support his boasts in his column last week. These flaws are due for “MAXimum Exposure.”

Letter to the Editor: Don’t be so harsh on the freshmen

With the incoming class of freshmen comes many things; among them is an inevitable article from an upperclassmen giving “advice” (or essentially just whining) about the incoming JCU class. Look, I’m a fellow member of 2009; we were all freshmen at one point and we were all confused at where to go and how to…
