No humour at Western

Re: An open letter to the students of the University of Western Ontario, Sept. 16

To the Editor:
This is a sad day at Western! Today (and for the past week) I have been reading about this religious controversy regarding the Horovitz cartoon that ran last year and have concluded that Western CANNOT TAKE A JOKE! Having been brought up in this time of political correctness I am sensitive to the feelings of all parties concerned but your feelings are not the point. The Gazette simply ran a comic (think about that word, hmmm.... comic) within their rights as a paper, in our free country. What I have to say to all offended parties is I hope you pray to whatever God you believe in (I'll pray for you too) that He/She grant you a sense of humour! I guess they forgot to give you one. As for me, I'm currently trying to find a university that has one and will transfer promptly!
