I was distressed and dismayed at the article announcing that six local university presidents have signed a letter to President-elect Donald Trump calling on him to respond to the rash of violence erupting after his victory ("Maryland university presidents among 110 to sign letter to President-elect Trump," Nov. 18). If the presidents and the Sun would remove their biased blinders, they would have heard Mr. Trump's call loud and clear to the protesters to stop. No such call has come from the vanquished camps of Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama. Perhaps that is to whom the letter should have been sent.
It's especially upsetting that one of these presidents is from my alma mater, Loyola University Maryland, whose administrative position has not done many of us alumni proud. Furthermore, Loyola's hierarchy told the senior class recently to not use the theme of "America" at an event, as it would sound divisive. That is to say, it sounds like "Make America great again." It appears that the liberal Jesuit education has become literally interpreted.
God bless our President-elect Trump. Sorrowfully, local academia is not giving him a chance.
