Letter to the Editor

Column was a bad joke

Please tell me that Lindsay Sainlar’s column (April 8, This Easter, frozen Snickers, Cheerios and pretzels mean love) was a joke. Correct me if I’m wrong, but April Fools’ Day has unfortunately passed. This is the most incoherent and violent assault on my intelligence I’ve ever experienced. How could you allow her to pee in the corner of my precious Herald?

When did frozen Snickers become part of Easter? What happened to good old fashioned egg hunting? Isn’t Easter a religious holiday unrelated to a rabbit’s missing in action testicles and his sex drive?

Can someone please show her the English section of the fall bulletin so that poor child can learn transition, internal/ external flow and for crying out loud, how to write a title to coordinate with the article? How could this horrific and scathing article follow a story about real love in “Raising Alexis?” I’m a computer information major and can put together a decent article.

Please don’t put her on the front page of Diversions again. If anything, divert her to the liquor ads because she definitely took a few too many shots to the head. On a positive note, if you are looking for a new columnist, then look no further. You have found the man for the job.
