Letter to the editor: Students need to act like champions

Dear Editor,

Congratulations, at least so far, to the Cats in New Orleans! We will be watching Monday night with all of you in Lexington and throughout Kentucky. This team has shown class, strength, and great skill.

On the other hand, I could hardly believe my eyes Sunday morning when on national and international news channels the lawlessness, lack of class, and outright utter destruction of the so-called celebration of the win over U of L was broadcast repeatedly to the entire world. This sure does make a positive statement for UK and for Lexington, don’t you think?

The last time I was on campus I noticed a sign stating that the University was a smoke-free campus. Bravo. Maybe next time I visit I will see another sign proclaiming that UK is a dumb-free campus as well.

Good grief – how about acting like champions instead of thugs?
