Subject: Mizzou Student Association lampooned in a new P. Maudit cartoon
To Elizabeth Loutfi, Ed-in-Chief; John Richmond Herrick, Opinion Editor; Katherine Knott, Managing Editor; and Taylor Blatchford, University News Editor, The Maneater, University of Missouri Student Newspaper:
Any independence at all from the reigning PC-mindset? Any real appreciation for vigorous debate, cornerstone of democracy? Any fondness for the First Amendment? After all, you are touted as “more aggressive” and “an independent watchdog of the university.” Hmm. Well, likely that’s just Newspeak blather and your reality is unoriginal fear of offending the cogs of indoctrination. You know like those on the Black Programming Committee. Now, that’s an interesting name, since programming can be a synonym for indoctrinating.
Anyhow, if it isn’t Newspeak, then please do respond and at least consider publishing the cartoon just posted on my blog site on Mizzou’s Student Association: wwwtheamericandissidentorg.blogspot.com. Come on. Curiosity didn’t kill the cat. PC did that!!! :)
Thanks for your attention.

I really just wanted to reach out and tell you thank you for thinking enough of us to make this cartoon a reality. I imagine it took a lot of time for you to put this together and your work does not go unappreciated. Please enjoy the rest of your evening.

Thanks for the response. You are the only one so far deigning to respond, though your response was robotic (i.e., smiley-faced everything's wonderful in Mizzoulandia). Don't your instructors encourage you to question and challenge and fight for reason, logic, fact, and freedom? Alas, methinks not in the least. Ideology always trumps reason.
