Re: "Posing for profits," Sept. 20

To the Editor:

I am appalled at the uninformed nature of your editorial.

How do you know the students won't represent Western's cultural diversity?

I think the charitable reaction of students to help raise money proves Western to be a thoughtful and generous institution.

Before you use a cataclysm for your own cause to draw attention to yourself, remember that not only are you trivializing the events, but you are also making the rest of us look bad.

There is so much obvious hatred in the world and as our nation approaches the threat of a world war, why don't you focus your energy on a greater cause?

If you are so concerned about the image of Western students, realize the women will be posing in garments of their choice.

These students also choose to help those in need. It shows to me the diversity of a Western student, not by what they are wearing but what they stand for.
