Truly I am stunned after reading the entire context of the three letters from the parents of the women's basketball players at the University of Illinois.
What responsible human being would condone this behavior or act in this manner, especially when dealing with young women or anyone?
I read Jim Dey's News-Gazette column on the new campus phenomenon known as "micro-aggression" with some interest.

I spent time getting food from my cabinets on the morning of May 9, to stamp out hunger.
I was astounded when I returned from shopping, about 5 p.m. that Saturday, to find my bags of donated food still in front of my mailbox, untouched.
What a disappointment.
Guess the U.S. Postal Service in my area didn't participate in stamping out hunger.
