To the Editor: I appreciated the opportunity to give some thoughts and feedback as a part of the article from last week’s issue, “New Parental Leave Policy for Trinity Faculty.” While I thank Trinitonian for addressing such an important issue on campus, I do feel that the central message of the article was lost: There is a conspicuous inequality at Trinity University when it comes to the stark differences between faculty and staff paid parental leave...

We wish that anyone who believes in the virtue of democracy could see the value of a journalist’s work as clear as day. Too often, however, reporters are painted as a prying, invasive presence. Popular media often depicts reporters as bullies, associating responsible reporters with tabloid paparazzi. These representations eclipse the banal reality of most journalists’ work. Trinitonian writers are constantly emailing and meeting with public figures on campus: university administrators, staff supervisors, professors, student...

Calls of support for outfielder Wesley Moss ring out from a small group of Sul Ross State University (SRSU) fans are swallowed by the enormity of a worn down stadium in Alpine, Texas. As the SRSU sophomore steps into the box, the voices of the scattered spectators mix with cheers, jeers and muted laughter from both dugouts. Standing on the mound, Trinity senior Chris Tate cannot hear them. As Tate begins his windup, time suddenly...
