Will Marwitz, St. Joseph This child is not yours, this child is mine Whether born in Kiev, Tokyo, New York or in Palestine – This child is not yours to gnash and devour As fodder of decades, centuries or clicks by the hour – Your all-consuming bombs and masquerading mines – Your funnels of despair […]
Nicole Gertken, Rice As a mother, I was disgusted by Dennis Dalman’s Sept. 18 column “Cookie-aisle screechers need spanking.” I was really angry when I finished reading this column, really angry, and not for the reason you are probably thinking.
