Do it for the kids

Swayed by two members of the council, the financial committee decided to discontinue funding for this long-running event because “it is not inclusive to all of campus.” Meanwhile, the Council decided to continue funding for events like the Keenan Revue, which provides no form of service to anyone, only includes the members of one dorm and is not even allowed on campus. Somehow the committee decided that making fun of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s students was more worthwhile than helping under-privileged children and giving back to the community.
I am embarrassed that the elected student leaders of Notre Dame could make such an absurd decision. This is a no-brainer. Reverse the decision, and like Matt Damon says, “Do it for the kids.”
