Campus Quips tactless

Re: Campus Quips, Mar. 4, 2004,

In my three years of reading the Gauntlet, this was quite possibly the most tasteless thing I have ever seen printed in it.

According to the Center for Disease Control, about two in 1,000 college students are infected with HIV. Wouldn’t that make them feel great if Mr. Cho happened to ask one of them? STDs can be physically and emotionally painful health conditions which are a reality for many university students, and, in my opinion, were not treated appropriately with this week’s question.

I’m not saying anyone’s feelings are the responsibility of the Gauntlet or any of it’s writers, but please, in the future, have some tact.
