University of Minnesota 9-11 Controversy Update

Hat tip Daily Beast and Minnesota Daily



We recently posted the news about the University of Minnesota student government's decision not to commemorate 9-11 for fear of offending certain students or making them feel less safe.

The Daily Beast has followed up on the controversy.

The University itself, no doubt having heard from their donors, announced that no matter what decisions were reached by the student government, the university would, indeed, commemorate 9-11. Here below is an editorial by the campus paper, Minnesota Daily.

Sorry to break it to the little rascals, but when you bring national discredit to your university, the adults should step in. All too often they don't.
