Title: I Am Afraid of the Security Moms
Abstract: This is one of many columns by the author that elicits strong comments to her mail box, telephone message machine, and website. Her column is published in the Reno Gazette Journal. On Sundays and any given Monday, she has from ten to seventy messages that include basic disagreements and offensive aggressive insults. Periodically, she receives phone calls with the repetitive litany that she must "go back to Mexico and leave us alone." The angry readers have not discovered (after ten years of writing the column and constant references to her former country) that she is not from Mexico, but from Chile. The death threats are also common and her office at the
university remains locked at all times. She has a peephole in her office door to view visitors before opening it.
