Thursday's photo was inappropriate

I was highly offended by the picture in the Alligator today of the young man arrested for theft. I would appreciate photos to be more informative and less sensational. To publish a picture of a suspect in the middle of a strip search before he's even been proven guilty is in very bad taste. It didn't add anything to the story and violated this 17-year-old's privacy.

Guest columnist wrong about STEM degrees

I applaud the underlying premise of Austin Swink's column regarding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) majors. There is a need to encourage students to pursue these fields because they provide a large part of the foundation upon which our economy and society rest. However, his proposal that raising the tuition for these students will increase the number of graduates with these degrees is wholly false.

More work needs to be done for homeless

This letter is in response to Adrianna Paidas' article about the requirement for police clearance imposed on the poor and homeless to be allowed to use services at St. Francis House homeless shelter and dining hall. This requirement was imposed at the same time the 130 meal limit ordinance was enacted, but the police clearance requirement was not enforced until the meal limit was lifted. For two and a half years, they were forced to turn away thousands of hungry people.
