More lights, police needed at LMC

December 4, 2017


Filed under Perspectives

DEAR EDITOR: I am concerned about the Los Medanos College safety policies. I have attended LMC since spring of 2015, but this year there have been several assaults on campus. These mishaps concern me greatly. I feel our school has had an alarmingly high number of assaults and the safety issue should...

NY Times is out of touch

Tony Hovater is a man just like any other. He puts his pants on one leg at a time. He’s just your average working-class man – or rather he was. There’s just this one thing that sets him apart from most folks. He’s a Nazi-sympathizer. And we never would have heard of him if the New York Tim...

What we eat is affecting us all

What did you eat this past Thanksgiving? For some, plates were adorned with vegetables, mashed potatoes and gravy. But if your answer was meat, you were just one of the other 88 percent of Americans who also consumed it — resulting in the 44 million turkeys that were consumed on Thanksgiving Day alone. P...

Millennials not the rude ones

You can’t look at the Internet or watch news for more than 20 minutes without seeing some ‘think piece’ talking about how Millennials are lazy, narcissistic, coddled, etc, etc. One phrase these critics repeatedly throw out is a “culture of entitlement” – supposedly, everyone under 30 live...

Solve the nuclear problem

November 16, 2017


Filed under Editorial

A bill introduced by California Representative Ted Lieu would prohibit the president from launching a nuclear strike for any reason other than in retaliation without a formal declaration of war from Congress. With rising nuclear tensions and Trump’s increasingly unhinged behavior, this bill is ...

I’m not your ‘safe Black friend’

I’m not your ‘safe Black friend’

Kimberly Stelly, kstelly@lmcexperience.com

November 16, 2017


Filed under Perspectives

Are you a Black person who has been called “whitewashed” or an “Oreo”? Are you the Black friend people feel comfortable saying racist things to despite your pro-Black politics? Do your non-Black friends say they’re blacker than you when they know a song you don’t know? The friend people ask ri...

Social media must be recognized

November 16, 2017


Filed under Perspectives

Social media is arguably the single most widespread contribution to the planet by recent technology. You can keep track of your friends, family, and even your next-door neighbor’s cat if you feel so inclined. The world has become a smaller place, and people are now becoming more connected to one anothe...

Enough of the mass shootings

Tammy Seward, tseward@lmcexperience.com

November 16, 2017


Filed under Perspectives

The last several months have been heart wrenching for many areas of our country due to natural disasters or man made tragedies. I cringe every time the news comes on and when I get on social media as facts of each case comes to light. For instance, the shooter in the Sutherland Springs Church shoot...

Ads take away from the moment

Do we really need to see advertisements everywhere we go? During the World Series, which I understand is a big deal, there were ads every few seconds the pitcher was on the mound taking a breath, deciding what to do next. Even during this intense and championship-deciding game — where the pressure ...

Put an end to the blaming

November 8, 2017


Filed under Editorial

There’s this common psychological trick used by people who need to manipulate a narrative to keep themselves from taking responsibility for something they’ve done wrong. It’s called blame-shifting. In light of all the sexual assault allegations, this is an important tactic to note. Though it is ...
