Letter to the editor

As a private educational/character education consultant and health educator here at Campus Health, I just wanted to commend you for bringing the serious problem and consequences of bullying to the forefront in your editorial (sic) on March 31 (“”Too late to take action against bullies””).

This is a national problem that affects so many with its serious, long-lasting emotional and physical consequences. The idea that bullying is just a routine rite of passage for all students is irresponsible. The problem of bullying has only gotten worse with the addition of cyber avenues by which to intimidate others.

Kudos to you for bringing this important issue back into our consciousness as educators, peers and compassionate people. Mindfulness and kindness must trump cruelty.

Great piece! I’ve never really liked poetry slams all that much (though I enjoy writing poetry), and your writing got me interested. Thanks!

On ‘ASU makes UA sole backer of Phoenix medical college,’ April 5

ASU probably cannot afford it. Michael Crow has such a huge litigation budget because he fires anyone who stands in his way, including tenured professors. The news doesn’t surprise me. ASU’s annual litigation costs are at least $3 million, and that’s not including settlements. Crow rules with an iron fist.

Brilliant, Mr. Knauer. I’ve always liked reading your work. This piece is beauty.
