Letter to the editor: Warmer welcome for another new president

It seems The DAILY’s editorial board woke up, unlike perpetually-pleasant Mr. Rogers, on the cranky side of the writing bed this quarter (“Welcome to our neighborhood, Mr. President,” Sept. 22). Perhaps we’ll chalk it up to a particularly bad summer of Cubs baseball, which has put many around Chicagoland in a foul mood.

From my undergraduate years to today, this will be the fourth president I’ve seen lead NU, and I’ve never worried about what “brand” they would be. Was The Daily looking for a half-skim latte with a dash of collegiate economics expertise (easy on the froth)? And I would wager some decent coin that the good Dr. Schapiro does not intend to lead us down a negative path, his inability to stop late-game offensive interceptions excepted. So welcome Mort (if, like Nana, I might use the informal) to Evanston.

And when you are discussing one of the other famous schools of Northwestern – Medill – please remind some of their cynical students that the School of Communication has no “s” in its name. While The Daily may not know what to expect from you, we all would expect them to practice a little more copy editing.
