EDITORIAL

There was an immediate, powerful reaction to Mr. John Ronning's opinion letter in last week's issue concerning the GALA organization. Some people expressed support for the content of the letter, others were strongly against it, and many were simply amazed that anyone, especially a college instructor, would actually make such views public.

I have been asked by several people how I could have possibly printed such a letter, and my answer is simple. It is for the same reason that I went against my associate editor's objections to print Michael Cyr's article in the Octoboer 22 issue, before GALA was recognized by the SAC as an official college organization. I believe that, as a part of the Ursinus community, both Michael and Mr. Ronning have the right to express themselves. I applaud both for their courage in publicizing their beliefs and opinions.
