Relationship’ controversy

Letter to the Editor | Friday, February 16, 2007

In response to the Feb. 13 column “Saint Mary’s – we need to talk”, Jonathan Klingler does make a valid point. But I have come to wonder what his intentions were. Yes, I would agree that the relationship between Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s can be considered “friends with benefits.” With that being said, this relationship has lasted many years and has operated in a seemingly peaceful co-existence. I believe that this relationship has even become part of the tradition of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s. Since both Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s emphasize the importance of tradition, my one question is, why attack this historical aspect of our schools?
