Sanity At The Chronicle.

The following was sent from the new editor-in-chief of The Utah Daily Chronicle to a person who expressed concern over the Red Herring column:

I want to extend my sincere apology regarding an article published in The Chronicle last week. While it was intended to be a satirical piece, I agree that was in poor taste and should never have been published. Unfortunately, that decision was left in the hands of the previous editor-in-chief, who's tenure ended last Wednesday. I have already removed the article from The Chronicle's Website and have personally apologized to Bishop Wester's office. In addition, we plan to print a formal apology when The Chronicle resumes publication on May 14. As the university's independent student voice, The Chronicle highly values religious tolerance and we hope to better promote that ideal in the future. Feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Sincerely, Dustin Gardiner
The Daily Utah Chronicle

Fair enough and well said. Errors in judgment occur and one of the purposes of student life in general is to make them and learn from them.

However, if the comment #16 on the previous post is in fact from the column's author, he has yet to recognize his error let alone learn from it.
