(Thursday’s Kernel Editorial: President Bilas, we’re stuck in the middle with you) was garbage; plain and simple. Think of the UK basketball team. Do you only support them when they’re winning, or are you behind them all the way? Mr. Bilas has done a phenomenal job as Student Government President. He is loyal to the […]

To those who left comments on my letter, I felt I needed to respond. I am sorry to disappoint you, but I do, and did know that the athletics department and the academic department are kept completely separate.

As a student I have to ask, Is this what makes a university? In the uncertain economic times in which we live is this where our focus should be? As a non-traditional student, (I […]

I realize that back pages of a newspaper generally function as a public forum for different points of view. Some issues are very complicated such that a 300-400 word response does not fully do the subject justice. Other topics are too value-laden, too dense for easy summation. Last week’s letter by Michael Butler in defense […]

In the Jan. 9 issue of the Kentucky Kernel, a letter to the editor titled “Support the respect for marriage act in Kentucky” was published. This letter contained several pieces of misinformation, which I hope to correct in the following letter. The aforementioned letter’s main topic boils down to the following: Kentuckians should repeal the […]

It’s time to start enhancing the future and lives of the people of Kentucky, and that means for everyone. Equal rights are a social justice issue, not a religious one. The Declaration of Independence states, “All men are created equal.” It’s time we start seeing these equal rights in the area we live. There are […]
