There should be a small snippet on 'Support the Sheaf' on Global tonight at 6. I have all the media savviness of a turnip so it'll be interesting to see how we're portrayed. One question they asked me that really threw me was, "Do you think the person responsible for this cartoon should be disciplined?"
This had honestly never occurred to me as even a potential course of action, so I had no idea how to respond. My first instinct was to say, "What, like cutting off his hand?" because punishing someone for creating controversial material seems to be in complete violation of our charter of rights and freedoms. Even if discipline was an appropriate response to the cartoon, I don't see how it could be done in such a way that wouldn't be viewed as a threat by every student at the U of S to not write/draw/sing/sculpt or otherwise express anything controversial. So for the record, no, I don't think Mr. MacDonald should be punished.
