Better Treatment for Migrant Workers
Regarding an Oct. 24 editorial, ``Stop Crackdown,'' I totally agree with the author's opinion.

Improve the System
Regarding an Oct. 24 editorial, ``Stop Crackdown,'' I felt a deep sympathy for immigrant workers and it made me reflect on my consciousness and basic attitude toward them.

Safety of Influenza Vaccine
With regard to an editorial titled ``Influenza Inoculation'' dated Oct. 23, I absolutely agree with your opinion that we should keep monitoring the side effects of the vaccine prior to the rush to be vaccinated.

Why in Seoul and Gyeonggi?
I'm writing in response to an Oct. 15 article: ``Most Native English Teachers in Seoul and Gyeonggi.'' According to the data presented in the article, 60 percent of all native English teachers at hagwon, or private language institutes, work in the..

The award of the Nobel Peace Prize to U.S. President Barack Obama is arguably one of the most absurd awards that the Nobel Committee has ever made. Highly patronizing it will be received with incredulity around the world. In fact, there's rarely be..

Lots of Luck Needed for the Mission
Awarding the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize to U.S. President Barack Obama was indeed a surprise. I would not be stunned though if in fact, I fully expect a deluge of criticisms and condemnations from right-wing columnists, bloggers and reactionary g..

Intern Teacher System
Nowadays, the intern teacher system is a hot issue in the world of education. Students attending education colleges demonstrated against this system in Seoul on Sept. 25. But the government and the students continue to oppose each other and hold di..

Too Much Work for Kids
I would like to talk about the system of studying, which young Korean elementary school students have to adhere to in schools.

Contaminating Women
Carl Djerassi, father of the contraceptive pill, has regretted his invention and has blamed it for the demographic catastrophe and the terrible imbalance of the present population.

On Religious Freedom
Oct. 1 marked the 60th anniversary of communist oppression in mainland China. The nation's Marxist government falsely presents itself as the authentic spokesman for the aspirations of the people, and claims to be able, though by recourse to violent..

Miscalculated Assumption
I must admit I was extremely intrigued when I saw a Sept. 22 article, ``Unified Korea to Exceed G7 in 2050,'' regarding Goldman Sachs analyst Kwon Goo-hoon's projection of a possible unified Korea's GDP in 2050.
