To the editor: Cadet Bone Spurs claims he would have run into Stoneman Douglas High School unarmed if he had been on the scene of the recent shooting there. Apparently, he is braver now than he was during the Vietnam era when he secured five deferments. I would like to call on him to immediately fly to the scene of the next school shooting and put his new-found bravery into action.March 5, 2018 3 p.m. read more..

To the editor: Regarding President Trump’s recent proposal to arm teachers as the first line of defense against armed shooters in schools… My first reaction was that this is by far the worst idea from a presidency filled with amazingly bad ideas. But my second reaction was that, as a lifelong science teacher, I should keep an open mind. Why not put my science background to the task of deciding if this idea could work?February 26, 2018 3 p.m. read more..
To the editor: “Horrified” is the only word to describe my reaction to the Chronicle headline “TD finds BB gun ‘no threat.’” Reading the text only worsened my horror. As the victim of a BB shot that nearly destroyed my eye when I was 9 or 10 years old, I think my reaction is understandable.February 24, 2018 3 p.m. read more..
