The front page debate in the Wildcat is about what color to paint the "A" on A-Mountain. Here's my summary:

Kendrick Wilson: Painting it red, white and blue to make a political statement is no more appropriate than painting it black.
Caitlin Hall: [Don't paint it at all.]
Cody Angell: [Camouflage.]
Steve Campbell: Since when do the colors, red, white and blue represent a pro-war stance? They don’t. They are our nation’s colors during peacetime as well as war. They are a symbol of patriotism.
Bill Wetzel: ...40 million people in poverty and without health care...change french fries and french toast to freedom fries and freedom toast...bogus economic stimulus package...[who cares?]
Phil Leckman: The decision to keep the “A” red, white and blue is patriotic grandstanding...[who cares?]

I didn't expect fair and balanced, but I think 5-1 is a pretty common ratio for a college paper, even in a conservative state.
Wetzel's opinion is especially funny since he uses his space as a platform for other buzzwords then says he doesn't care. How about declining to participate?

My take: red, white, and blue. These are the school's colors, after all. Even if it is patriotic grandstanding, great. Should Tucson citizens not be patriotic? If people don't like the unanimous vote, they can change those who made it in the next election.
