Letter: Poor choice

December 22, 2012


To the editor:

Wednesday, I open up my print edition of this news rag and in huge block letters the term “Extermination” in reference to the basketball game last night!

Just what are you fools thinking? With the recent events at the school in Connecticut, you use this disgusting, inappropriate and hateful term to announce a basketball game victory over yet another cream puff basketball team.

You people need to get a grip and learn some restraint, respect and regard for current events that have so terribly shaken the nation with your low-class reporting of a non-essential ball game.

Oh Geez! Lighten up. Should pest control companies change their names now,too?

He's right military assault weapons mow down humans like the Jayhawks mow down "cream puff" challengers.

Do away with military assault weapons = get them off the street and out of the retail markets no matter what.

Leave the Jayhawks alone.... although coach Self could work in North Carolina and Kentucky on his "cream puff" schedule.

This has got to be the dumbest letter to the editor ever written. Fred, Richmond's mascot is the Spiders. The use of the word "Extermination" was a pun in reference to pest control. The headline and the game itself had nothing to do with the tragedy, and every article you read does not relate to the tragedy either. The term was not inappropriate. Not to diminish the seriousness of the tragedy whatsoever, but you need to realize you are being just a tad hyper-sensitive. Take a step back, pal.
