On Letter: Military icon


Ken Lassman 5 years ago

Your sentiments are not just your own; many others share your sentiments as well, just as I suppose there are others who don't. Like I said during the last round of comments on this topic, the missile to me is a symbol of humanity's brilliance and at the very same time a symbol of our shortcomings. And to ignore or downplay either one of these very human traits is to do so at our very great peril. This double edged sword characteristic is what this icon represents to me, and to have a public reminder of this is akin to the Icarus statue on west campus or other such complex symbolic depictions of our ambivalent nature.
