Letters to the Editor

Apple Always Tasty


[Re “Rotten Apples,” Nov. 8] Ms. Miller has called Apple on this low life battery, yes? There are better life batteries to be had at OtherWorld Computing. I have never heard of such low life on an iPod.

Apple users retain critical judgment and independence of thought, if one visits Mac Web sites where people talk, this can clearly be seen, so may she please refrain from talking about thick-minded Apple groupies who like every product that comes along.

But it is true that there is still a strong sense of Apple community. Hopefully, she will derive more satisfaction from her experience with Apple. They have responded to me when I called on them for help or service.

United We Stand


As a Jordanian student studying abroad, it pains me not to be able to march the streets of Amman with my fellow citizens and show my patriotism and love for our country. Although I am halfway across the world, I cannot be any prouder of calling myself a Jordanian after seeing the unity of our people in this continuous fight against terrorism. These barbaric and cowardly acts were committed by the devil’s agents — not by rational individuals fighting in the name of Islam.

I hope these unfortunate events will bring the Jordanian and American people closer together in the fight against terrorism. These cowards will only bring the Jordanian people closer to each other in the face of adversity and foreign attacks. To all those families who have lost loved ones, I send my deepest condolences. Our hearts and minds are with you and I assure you that the terrorists will not prevail in these trying times. The martyrs we lost in “Jordan’s 9/11” will not be forgotten and will only strengthen our drive to ensure a safe and prosperous Jordan for generations to come.

Praise for ’07 Writers


I have to say I really appreciated the opinion/campus life articles in Tuesday’s paper, especially those of my fellow ’07ers: Messrs. Cabral and Ozer and Ms. Miller. Good stuff; keep ’em coming.

Also, why’s every letter to the editor have to be some complaint (this one included)? Celebrate the good in life. Yeah.
