Gordon Gee is just like Harry Reid. When Harry made an insensitive remark about Barack Obama's linguistics, people in his party talked of him like a crazy uncle. "Oh Harry just says stuff like that." As long as Gordon stays liberal, he'll be OK.


David Letterman was ten times worse during the elections. His attacks on Mormons were over the fence nightly, and nothing was said.

It's interesting who we choose to condem, and who we let get by.

Gee should have known better. I still think we should lighten up a little as a society. I thought the remarks as published in two articles in the d news were funny.The truth is friends poke fun at each other. They also apologize n they mess up and go to far.

We really need to step back and take a deep breath on this story. I cannot see this issue worthwhile to even write about. Gordon Gee is an intelligent college administrator and his comments about Catholics probably did not offend even one Catholic. We really need to stop living in a bubble which no one else lives in.

I know a lot of people who are brilliant at their jobs, but have a tin ear when it comes to other people's feelings. I suspect he's smart enough to take the criticism to heart and knock off the ill-advised humor.
