Noted and passed - Sept. 17, 2012

• As the teachers' strike unfolded in Chicago and protesting educators swarmed city streets, we watched with interest as one teacher explained, with a straight face, why they were going out on strike. "We want to make sure all the children in Chicago get the kind of education they deserve," he said. We've noticed that whatever the location, teachers who shut down schools always mouth the party line that they are doing it for the kids and not for themselves. We hope nobody actually believes that.

Woman’s fear of travel related to an anxiety issue

Dear Annie: Am I strange? I like to keep my house clean and neat. In addition, I check for items that may need fixing so the house is not in disrepair. Although friends and family think I am "anal," I do not feel that I am obsessive.

Notre Dame, ACC

College athletics has become too big and too important, a behemoth that sometimes seems to control the academic process rather than the other way around. But that is what it has come to, and with the huge amounts of money being tossed around for TV rights to college football and basketball games, it's hard to see it going the other way.

Wants street signs back up, more

I want to address this letter to the people who have changed the stop lights at the intersections of DeKalb and Fair Street, the intersections of DeKalb and Lyttleton Street, the intersection of DeKalb and Broad Street, and the intersection of DeKalb and Battleship Road. Why have the road names not been put back up near the stop lights?? It was always easy to give directions to someone with the road names up, but now they would not be able to find Fair, Lyttleton, Broad Street, or Battleship Road.

Remember

The men sat directly across from each other in the small bay of the dual prop aircraft over eastern Afghanistan, the only sound, the drone of the propellers, the only light, the red filtered lenses often used at night. They were all Middle Eastern, all the same build, all wore similar clothing. Other than these similarities, the differences were stark. Three of the men wore black hoods, completely covering their heads. They could not see Khalil although he was a mere three to four feet across from them. They were strapped to the inside wall of the plane and could ...

Editorial: Friendship Nine

About an hour north of Camden, nine civil rights protestors from the 1960s are scheduled today to receive a measure of justice after being jailed for staging a lunch counter protest in Rock Hill more than a half-century ago. Known as the Friendship Nine because they attended the now-defunct Friendship Junior College, the men protested a segregated lunch counter at a McCrory's store in 1961; they had decided prior to their actions that after being arrested, they would refuse bail and instead serve jail sentences as a way to spotlight their actions and the injustice leading to the sit-in.
