Illiniwek Rises Again

First the University of Illinois bowed to the forces of political correctness and booted out  Chief Illiniwek as the campus’s mascot – after the Chief had served in this role for 81 years. The university’s student government association had declared the use of this symbol of honor and loyalty to be discriminatory and a racial stereotype.

Now, in the name of free speech, UI has lifted the prohibition, allowing the Chief’s logo on homecoming parade floats.
Hail to the Chief (and good sense at UI)!
