  • City Lights: Give them a hero's welcome

    A few years ago, I interviewed a local high school graduate who enlisted in the Marines after 9/11. He and I met in front of his alma mater, and as he posed for a picture by the school sign, a woman pulled up to the curb, handed our photographer $100 in...

  • City Lights: A wish list in H.B. for 2012

  • Shadia: My kind of Islam

    Unlike Muslims who were born and raised in America, I thankfully didn't have to go to Sunday school to learn about my religion. Born in the '80s, I grew up in a place where my religion was part of the society and the community in which I lived in. I...

  • Mailbag: Don't think twice, Dylan's all right

    I enjoyed some of what you had to say about my friend Bob Dylan ("Dylan worth the time, no matter the quality," City Lights, July 14). As for what the media has to say about him, it's the same old stuff. And as for the word "icon," you in the media need...
  • City Lights: Teaching and learning from a Libyan friend

    I imagine she would still look the same. My flatmate was in her early 20s when I saw her last, and less than a decade has passed since then. When I see crowd photos of the uprising in Libya, I scan the faces to check for hers — smiling or yelling...
