Letter to readers

On Monday, May 15, a cartoon was printed on the back page of The Minnesota Daily. Many in the University community have since expressed how offended they were by the cartoon. I would like to take this opportunity to tell readers that what was printed was not meant to be malicious, derogatory or racist. I apologize to members of this community for any offense they might have taken from the cartoon. I did not foresee how it would affect community members and so I let it get into print. Those employed at The Minnesota Daily work hard every day to serve the University community and I hope you, the reader, can see that the decision to print that cartoon in no way changes the dedication, commitment and abilities of those who work here.

Sincerely,

Mike Wereschagin

Editor in Chief
