Letter to the Editor: ‘Cougar on the loose’ language too loose

Editor:

I am not generally one who would write to you in protest. I have a “live and let live” attitude. I was, however, shocked, having read the Nov. 16 issue of The Chrony, and the language used in the “Cougar on the loose!” contest.

I recognize this is a college newspaper and so will use colloquial language such as “furry little ass,” but this goes too far.

The credibility of the newspaper is jeopardized when such vulgarities are used. I can’t imagine reading things of this nature in neither The Los Angeles Times, nor The Daily Aztec (the student newspaper at San Diego State, where I am an alumnus). Please use better judgment when deciding what is, or is not, appropriate content for The Daily Utah Chronicle.
