Editorial: The cost of education

New Hampshire is ranked third in percentage of residents leaving the state to attend college outside of New Hampshire. Fifty percent of New Hampshire students leave the state to pursue higher education. The national average is 18 percent, the New England average is 39 percent.


Common Sense: Bait and Switch

Remember Robin Hood? He stole from the rich and gave to the poor. Today, the Republican Party has become a reverse Robin Hood, stealing from the poor and giving to the rich.

Take 5: A big 'ole thank you

After watching over six hours of the Academy Awards this past Sunday, I started to wonder what kind of acceptance speech I would write if I had to write one for graduating college. How would I start it? Would I cry? Who would I thank? Who could I leave out?

Instead of listing every single person that has helped me (hopefully) graduate from UNH, in my fifth take, I'd like to take some time to thank the five teachers who have made me the thinker, learner and student that I am today.


Painefully Right: Don't lose hope

Periodically we, as men, come under fire from various feminist sects. We are generalized as rapists. We are stereotyped as abusers. We are blamed for all of society's woes. We, as men, are told that the patriarchal society in which we live ruins the lives of everyone except for rich, white men (preferably overweight ones adorned in expensive suits).

My message today is to keep up hope.

Power to Whitney Williams

To the Editor:

I would like to respond to the four letters that were printed in the TNH on Friday, March 5 in response to Whitney Williams' article. First of all I'd like to say that it seems to me like Williams is getting so much of a response because she actually provides good argumentation for her claims, and that she is really striking a chord.


Alternative to Durham Devil

To the Editors:

I was amused by the story "Devil went down to Durham" from the Tuesday, March 1 issue of TNH. I understand that the purpose of having a guy outfitted as a Bible-toting devil was to help spread a message about Christianity (it was VERY creative, I might add).

The Universal Myth of the "Oppressed Woman"

To the Editor:

Let me start out by introducing myself. My name is Diana, and I am a mechanical engineer. I want to point that out because I am about to defend the male gender, and I do not want you thinking it is coming from some angry, porn-watching, wife-beating rapist.


Don't Park in Durham

To the Editor:

I am an off-campus, full-time student. Being fully aware of the outrageous parking situation in Durham already, I approached parking in fall 2004 cautiously, arriving from Newmarket. So far, I have paid over $500 in tickets to UNH Parking Services from fall 2004 until now.

Issue or agenda, which is it?

To the Editor:

I am compelled to respond to Ms. Whitney Williams' writings. It may appear that Ms. Williams has an agenda to do everything she can to stop rape. That's a good agenda. Stopping rape and violence toward women, promoting women's rights and equality, especially in the work place, are all good agendas to have.


Williams shouldn't openly discriminate

To the Editor:

I would just like to say that I appreciate Whitney Williams' opinion. While I may not agree with her, she still has the right to express what she wants. I have been taught to always treat my oppressors with love. If I have been accused, then I turn the other cheek.
