Be Not Proud In This Library

Here\'s and interesting one from News-Press
on a sticky situation at Florida Gulf Coast University.

The head librarian (Director?) asked some employees
to remove “Proud to be an American” stickers this
week, saying she didn’t want to offend international
students.

“My concern was that if a student comes to the
desk and sees the slogan, it might make it
uncomfortable, I think we have an
obligation to think about how we present ourselves. We
want to ensure civility and tolerance.”

Update[Thurs 10:15am] She Said Sorry after the school president rescinded her directive.
