Student questions editor's fairness
I am writing in regard to senior editor
Stacie Thomas's article, "Health Center's
actions anger UNL student" (Daily Ne
braska, Nov. 6).
In the same day's edition of the Daily
Nebraskan, the services of the University
Health Center's after hours clinic were
outlined ("Health Center heals after hours",
Jeff Korbelik, Nov. 6) and then criticized
by the editor. The same staff interviewed
separately for the first article were
attacked by Thomas in her article. At
what point does the editor's anger become
a petty vendeta? Does the editor contend
that these two articles, a set-up and
knock-down situation, appeared in the
newspaper that she edits by coincidence?
The anger that Thomas has must be
blinding as well; it certainly has blinded
her sense of fairness. She attacks nurses
and other personnel vehemently, claiming
mistreatment of her sister. No doubt she
would also decry, the health center as
vehemently if they violated the confi-

It was Indira's secular kinship with the
Sikhs which prevented her from effective
action, and for which she was repeatedly
pressured in the past three years as
trouble was brewing. If she died, she died
because the sins of commission and a
noble one at that. It is much better than
the sins of omission. As she. once said,
paraphrasing Lincoln, "If I have to choose
between the Union and the Habeas Corpus,
I will choose the Union." She paid dearly
for it. It is to her brilliant leadership that
India is an ocean of stability in that
region. Looking at the problems of Latin
American and various Asian nations, one
can see how she built up the institutional
structure of the country. After the United
States, India has the largest network of
dentiality of her sister's case to answer the
charge. This is something that a nurse
cannot do, Thomas has constructed a
case of hearsay evidence and the accused
stand unable to contest her charges.
I am an employee at a general hospital,
and the irresponsibility shown by Thomas
angers me. Health services, be they at
student health centers or anywhere eke,
exist to serve the public. They have a
responsibility for the people that they
serve. The Daily Nebraskan also has a
responsibility to the students they serve.
Thomas should put her anger aside and
think of her responsibility to her readers.
Her article says she is not trying to
discourage students from using the health
center, but what purpose did it accom
plish? Opinions, while emotional, should
be informative and objective. Thomas' were
neither. Perhaps she should learn to
control her anger and to keep her opinions
