LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Finding Common Ground: A Republican and a Democrat on The Sun’s comment section

To the Editor:

Last week created a strange moment of unity — a pizza party among several deeply divided groups on campus as we observed Mitch McBride’s ’17 hearing. This was the first opportunity recently for any number of conversations that have not been happening: we have observed Cornell’s campus fracturing along sharper lines this past year. We’d like to address how this has been particularly visible in, and amplified by, trolling and hate speech in the Cornell Daily Sun’s comments section. Although primarily driven by alt-right ideology, the ad hominem, vituperative and intellectually void rhetoric has not been limited to any one group within the Cornell Daily Sun commentariat. These comments are extreme enough to expose the contradiction within free speech: that speech of this sort can itself have a chilling effect on speech.

FROM THE EDITOR | Join The Sun — Hands-On Journalism

With the start of the new academic year, Cornell faces big changes. The College of Business begins its first semester, the search for the next Cornell president goes on and apartment buildings continue to rise on the Collegetown horizon.

Our foremost goal is to serve the public by publishing quality, in-depth coverage.

The Sun’s Top 10 Movies of 2015

1) Mad Max: Fury Road

Simply put, Mad Max: Fury Road came thundering into the arena like 2000 horsepower of nitro-boosted war machine and blew the roof off not only every other action movie this year, but every movie this year, period. At 70 years old, Australian director George Miller conjured a magnum opus that leaves all the younger competition eating the dust. It’s a two-hour chase with non-stop action, expert choreography, mind-melting stunts, spectacular visual bravura, gritty tenacity, a vibrant heart at its center and a heroine for the ages in Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron). Katniss Everdeen has got nothing — nothing — on her. I’ve seen the thing five times — the first 15 seconds alone are so awesome what with the roar of those engines that I made them my ringtone — and I simply cannot get enough.
