The Alligator published my letter. I've been getting phone calls and emails all day from folks giving me the thumbs up. The editor told me that it's refreshing to get feedback from staff and faculty, it doesn't happen often but it does present another point of view, one that is definitely needed.
Someone who was concerned about me being called on the carpet for my opinion asked "weren't you afraid to sign your name to it?"
My response was simply: "I never even gave it a second thought"
And that's the truth. I didn't.
