Apology Necessary

I have just put my name to the “Dartmouth Welcomes North Dakota Hockey” on-line petition, which reads as follows:

The undersigned members of the Dartmouth community wish to convey to the students, faculty and alumni of the University of North Dakota our sincere apologies for the recent statement issued by the Dartmouth Athletic Director. Although we all detest racism, ignorance and intolerance in any form, we do not believe that it is appropriate for an institution of higher learning to attack or criticize a sister institution’s exercise of free speech and its attendant constitutional rights. We hope that your visit to Hanover is an enjoyable and spirited contest of top-notch intercollegiate ice hockey and that the self-flagellation and suffocating political correctness can be left outside the arena.
Kevin Hudak ‘07 does a good job of explaining why this is necessary.

UPDATE: They are also talking about this controversy over at Power Line Forum.

UPDATE: Andrew Cline: “Dartmouth students apologize to the University of North Dakota for Dartmouth Athletics Director Josie Harper ‘s apology to Dartmouth students for inviting UND to participate in next month ‘s hockey tournament. (Got that?)”

    How Regents Should Reign
