Education is a right and not a privilege Dear Editor: I would be most disagreeable in your "real world" of intolerance. In response to your article entitled "The liberal hippies at Berkeley need to look at the big picture..." I was shocked and appalled by the lack of compassion. In my opinion, the hippies aren't the only ones who need to look at the "big picture". I believe...

It baffles me to know that the third World War can start any time in the up-coming years, or even months.

It never ceases to surprise me on how little I know on what's currently going on in the world. Sure, I've heard of the war that's...
