The war continues

Letter to the Editor | Thursday, April 2, 2009

Wars in the past have been well-planned and implemented over important issues such as slavery, freedom and equality. But you, Otters of Sorin, deserve no credit for your ill-planned attempt. You have made a mockery of the art of ancient battle.

At approximately 12:15 am April 2nd (a day late of April Fool’s we might add), you lined up outside our hall, ordering the surrender of a mere freshman who had simply asserted her right of freedom of speech and used her as a scapegoat to justify your so-called reign of terror against the women of Walsh Hall.

Once the sweet freshman went outside to hear your speech, you did nothing but exclaim, “Show us your horns!” and blankly stared at her. Way to go. Clearly you were accepted early to Notre Dame. Oh wait, we forgot! You then so bravely threw water balloons at her, forgetting that we are W.I.L.D. Women and not witches prone to melting.

You may have thought you were proving a point, Sorin, but you just dug yourselves deeper into a nonsensical hole. You further alienated yourselves from the acceptance of your peers on campus by not only defacing our hall (Tearing out our screen doors? Really?) but also by disturbing the peace of nearby dorms this evening. We sincerely thank you for proving our point that you hate us for no reason. On behalf of W.I.L.D. Women everywhere.
