Apology to the Diversity Task Force

To the Editor:
Last Week, there was a letter to the Editor submitted by several groups and noted individuals demanding an apology to the Diversity Task Force for the way most of the campus reacted to the idea of changing the fight song. Here is my formal apology:
I apologize for having the opinion that anyone who believes that the fight song must be changed is nuts. I further apologize for not being of the same opinion as the people on the Diversity Task Force. I apologize for being mean-spirited, hateful, and narrow-minded. I apologize for mistakenly assuming that diversity included everyone's ideas and opinions. Apparently it does not include mine.
I am of the opinion that it is wrong to change the fight song and that any other opinion on the issue should not even be considered. However, since my thoughts and opinions are not acceptable to the Diversity Task Force, I apologize for them.
To the Diversity Task Force: Could you please give us handbook so that we will know what we are allowed to think and believe?
