Dear University Record editor:
How you know the Apocalypse is near: “U-M William L. Clements Library presents a new exhibit ‘Murder Most Foul: Homicide in Early America’ featuring 15 different kinds of murder.” (University Record, week of July 9, 2012.) A noticeable omission: the papers of the murderer known as the Unabomber protectively archived in the U-M Library. As a grandparent, I urge a minimum age to view this Clements exhibit.
— Dale R. Leslie, U-M ’71
The University Record welcomes letters from members of the university community. Those on topics of broad university interest will be given preference for publication. Letters should be no more than 500 words and must be signed. The editorial staff reserves the right to reject any letter and to edit and/or condense letters for publication. The staff also reserves the right to limit the number of letters submitted by the same individual. Letters may appear in small type. Organizations submitting material must include the name and address of an appropriate officer. Letters must be received by noon Wednesday to receive consideration for publication in the next issue.
