Opinion

A clean coal-lective

Usage of the worst carbon dioxide emitter and overall polluter - coal - is still prevalent in our society in surprising forms.


Opinion

Giving credit

Thanks to The Cavalier Daily for your coverage of discussions on Grounds regarding local, national and international policymaking issues. In particular, we in Garrett Hall appreciated having The Cavalier Daily's Monday front-page story about the recent visit to the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy by Rudy deLeon.


Opinion

A bounced fact check

It is outrageously difficult to get a Jewish engineering student with unfinished problem sets to write something on the eve of one of the holiest days of Jewish calendar.


Opinion

Pedophilia is not humor

On Sept. 26, The Cavalier Daily ran a comic titled "Whoa" by Tiffany Chu. The comic featured two bears, one of them holding a heart-shaped box of what appeared to be candies, and another the so-called "Pedobear" with a caption saying "Sorry!


Opinion

In the right

As a faculty member who has tried consistently to support the honor system, I find the charges brought against The Cavalier Daily to be both mystifying and counterproductive.


Opinion

The highest court

On Friday, Sam Carrigan wrote a piece ("Accountability at the highest level") arguing that our legal system was not being applied to our leaders as it was to our citizens.


Opinion

Never Forget

Dear Students of the University, It has been ten years since September 11, 2001. While most of those among us were in our early adolescence then, the events of that day shattered the bubble inside which our collective childhood had progressed peacefully.


Opinion

Appreciation for service

The Global Student Council deeply regrets the recent replacement of Parke Muth, who formerly was the Office of Admission's director of international admission. For those who may not have known him, he was not only in charge of choosing which international students to admit to the University, but also acted as the academic adviser to many students throughout their years on Grounds.


Opinion

Facts over theory

I found Harrison Freund's column "Reversion to the Mean" pointlessly simplistic and unacceptable. He does such a good job discrediting his own illogical statements that it is a wonder why he wrote the article in the first place. Rather than present value investing in its true light, he lumps all its iterations into reversion theory, name-dropping great investors who no doubt do a lot more research than checking P/E ratios against historical values.


Opinion

The most interesting mascot

I can't be the only person to have noticed: The man riding the horse at the beginning of Virginia football games looks just like the Dos Equis Man. Can we really be sure this is a coincidence?


Opinion

Making headlines

I wanted to address the headline of the August 31 news article titled "Report exposes high hunger rates." This headline not only is misleading, but also is not valid.


Opinion

Going yard

Thomas Jones is very close to running for more than 10,000 yards in the pros, and that's despite a very slow start during his first three years.


Opinion

A fireside chat

My landlord is intentionally taking away from the enjoyment of my home, and apparently I cannot do anything about it. I am a resident of the West Range.
