Today, he’s an assistant professor of early Chinese studies at the University of Oregon.

    Letter to the Editor: Help for stutterers

    Letter to the Editor: Resist Trump

    To the editor: Wake up, America. We are now confronting a president-elect who has nominated persons for his cabinet and department chairs who are advocates for policies that appear to defy the purposes of the offices they would hold.

    Letter to the Editor: Occupied nation

    To the editor: Dear RaeLynn, I struggled much of the night trying to find a way to be strategic in responding to your comments about Israel and Palestine in Wednesday’s Crosstalk.
