I was shocked after reading your above subject article published on September 15, 2016 and the associated photo and cartoon caricature that accompanied the article! Your reference that our offering classes geared towards women because our gender is stupid, then your photo and cartoon in itself just insulted all women. I do... Read more »

I am writing in response to the editorial entitled “Skyline Offers Course Just for Women*”, as well as the photo accompanying the piece and the “Artistic License” cartoon on the same subject. I am surprised at what amounts to an anonymous attack on a class that you’ve singled out of the entire catalog. I’m not... Read more »

They quickly established themselves as the leading militia force amongst the Islamic extremists during the armed insurrection against Qaddafi. Much of their arsenal was either plundered from the regime’s weapons depots,... Read more »

More weapons!?!? Really?!?! We will be repeating another blunder in a part of the world where America has become inextricably associated with sowing instability, death and destruction. Let’s do the exact opposite. Take out what weapons are already there. Place an arms embargo on the country until the feuding parties run... Read more »

Editor: I am a huge believer of California's community college system. Though I cannot really afford adding it to my property taxes, l always vote for any measure that will benefit the SMCCCD.

Letter to the Editor: I believe Chancellor Galatolo summed it…

Editor, I believe Chancellor Galatolo summed it up when he wrote, “Dr. Stanback Stroud modestly performs all of her duties, functions and roles with the utmost integrity and devotion to her craft and has never exemplified anything close to a narcissistic or egotistical persona. In reality, which obviously escaped the illustrator... Read more »

Editor, I am writing to express my utter disappointment in your article and illustration in the previous (October 2) issue of the Skyline View where, what can only be described as a gross and offensive mischaracterization of our president was allowed publication. Despite the notion that the illustration had “nothing... Read more »

Editor, Simply stated, I was aghast and deeply offended when I saw the Editorial Cartoon in The Skyline View’s publication dated October 2, 2014.
