Letters to the Editor
I am happy New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's suspension was overturned. The so-called "Deflategate" was a joke from Day One.
After the release of the Wells Report, I didn't understand how "generally aware" became equal to "guilty beyond a reasonable doubt."
Oh, great. The University of Illinois football coach has been canned. Every day there is some shock coming from that nutty place.
Now that football might be even worse (not that I care), what are all of the new football fans in China going to watch?

Regarding The News-Gazette's Sept. 4 story "They Found Room at the Inn": The alleged "plight" of these students stands in glaring contrast to the real plight of millions of refugees, worldwide, displaced from their homes and desperate for food and shelter.
Again liberal, elite upper management at the University of Illinois has accepted a "resignation."
This time Provost Ilesanmi Adesida, but he's really still here. He is not resigned at all; in fact he's still being paid close to $300,000.
Again, what kind of insanity is going on here?
Regarding Dennis Kirby's Sept. 1 letter about panhandling, aggressive panhandling is illegal. If anyone feels threatened or intimidated or is approached near an ATM by someone asking for money, call the police. That's illegal.
Fellow observer Donald R. Aldeen poses a puzzling problem for chaos theoreticians when he asks: "Is there another university in the Big Ten so screwed up?"
As University of Illinois fans follow current problems at Rutgers and Nebraska, we recall Northwestern point-shaving scandals, locker room abuse at Penn State, while the Ohio State band marches to a "bro U haha".
