    In response to the Jan. 11 column titled, “UA women’s basketball and other sports deserve same respect as men’s”:

    Ms. Miller makes a very good point about coverage of women’s sports. I have been a season-ticket holder for basketball (and softball) for many years and even had the opportunity (for a price) to be guest coach for a basketball game every year it was offered under (Joan) Bonvicini’s reign. However, pointing fingers at the media is insufficient. All those ZonaZoo pass holders can attend the games free of charge yet attendance is a dismal 1500-1700 except when Arizona State University is playing. Where are all the students? How about watching a winning team for free (!) and save the money you are spending on beer, etc. I am curious, how many women’s basketball games does Rebecca attend every year?

    In response to the Jan. 17 column titled, “Campus should be smoke free”:

    Thank you for your editorial, Danielle. I would be happy to be a part of any smoke-free group that is active at the UA (even though I’m a Sun Devil!). 

    You may have seen that the entire University of California campus system in California will be completely tobacco-free by 2014. 

    Thanks again.
