Letters to the editor

Readers respond to stories on Thomas Jefferson, college costs, and aging.


Charlottesville, Virginia, is indeed a great place to visit for a long weekend, but the author skimmed over the University of Virginia as a sightseeing stop (“Jefferson Slept Here,” September 8). The campus is a UNESCO world heritage site. It is one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country (if not the most beautiful) and well worth a visit. I graduated from UVA and feel privileged to have spent four years of my life there.
