Mascot change isn't needed

Wednesday, April 14, 2004

To the editor:

In my opinion, a mascot change for Southeast Missouri State University is superfluous. Certainly sensitivity should not be overlooked, but the deluge of political correctness commentary in our society has reached the ridiculous.

Many factors need to be considered before a final decision is made regarding this issue. Consider the cost, public opinion and the abandonment of honoring our heritage.

I fervently hope that when a final decision is made, it will not be an impetuous one.
