    Letters to the Editor — Apathy loses big

    Editor — Laney President Elnora Webb’s email (to faculty and staff) suggests that Project Truth is coming back next academic year. 
    In 1978, the ACLU also invoked the First Amendment right to free speech and assembly when a neo-Nazi group planned to march through Skokie, a Chicago suburb where many Holocaust survivors lived. Although the ACLU prevailed in defense of the Nazis, many ACLU members resigned and the Nazis cancelled their march. Hopefully, the project won’t return, wishing a bigger headline. Congratulations to KR Nava and vocal students. There is nothing worse than apathy.
    While women’s health is threatened, people say nonsense like “Both parties are the same.” 
    This is how Ralph Nader, instead of being remembered as a hero, was 2000’s third party spoiler, allowing the worst president in American history to be appointed.

    Letters Policy

    The Tower welcomes letters to the editor of 150 words or fewer. Letters are subject to editing for space and clarity. Include name, major, and a valid phone number for contact. Email letters to laneytower(at)peralta.edu with subject line “Letter to the Editor.”

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
