The Daily Princetonian—Making Your University Look Bad 

Replace out my religion with “Islam” in the listing in your article and see if you still feel as smug.

Dear Claire, 

As a graduate of Brown University and a Scientologist, I find your attempt at humor in The Daily Princetonian’s “Top 10 Ways to Rehabilitate a Charter” discriminatory, offensive and, quite frankly, pathetic.

Do you and the student who proposed that entry really have so little imagination you can think of nothing “funnier” than broadcasting your ignorance about a worldwide religion?

Replace out my religion with “Islam” in the listing in your article and see if you still feel as smug.

I went to college and sought out a liberal arts education to broaden my horizons, learn critical thinking, and better understand the world and its people so that I could shed my prejudices and become a better citizen and human being.

It seems you are doing just the opposite, and dragging the name of a prestigious university down with you.
