In response to “The beginnings of the ZonaZoo: A look at its history” (by James Kelley, Nov. 9):
The ZonaZoo gets referenced on ESPN and college gameday all the time. Too bad one of the most memorable ZonaZoo moments was the premature field rush against Oregon in 2009. I guess that is why they have the 8 foot retainer wall now in front of it like a real zoo! All in all, great work by Mr. Wand.

A legacy — thanks for the memories!

I’d make a comment about how far the Zoo has fallen, but it was as pathetic back when I was in school as it is today. A student section that can’t even fill up for the USC game and empties out at halftime EVERY SINGLE GAME is nothing to be proud of.
Great article! Thank you for going back to the Zoo’s roots to get the story from the begining. Bear down!

In response to “Speakers voice opinions on student union Chick-fil-A at LGBT studies open forum” (by Brittny Mejia, Nov. 8):
I’ve been eating there when I am on campus. It’s not just for tastiness, but now for free speech.
— Carl Reardon
Don’t like Chick-fil-A? Don’t eat there! It’s one guy’s opinion, not the whole company’s. Last time I looked, we were in the United States, and everyone is entitled to free speech, no matter how distasteful some might find it.
We need more free speech and less political correctness.
