Ruth Wangerin is a long-time peace activist who is very distressed that the anti-war movement has still not succeeded. The ideas expressed in her postings on OpEdNews and elsewhere are hers alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of the universities from which she graduated -- Valparaiso University, the City University of New York Graduate School, and The Mailman School of Public Health of Columbia University. Nor do the remarks of the presidents of these esteemed institutions necessarily reflect the views of Dr. Wangerin and the other graduates, students, and faculty of these universities.
