I have a hard time believing that people actually went out of their way to debate this issue. This is easily one of the dumbest things I have read in the news this week, which considering all the news surrounding the Republican primaries that is quite an accomplishment. Also doesn’t surprise me that this happened in Utah.
CNN reports that the Board’s decision to override the student vote stems from a series of complaints from parents, who called in to complain that the term “Cougar” has become derogatory, according to a memo from Canyons Superintendent David Doty. Concerns were also raised about similarities to neighboring Brigham Young University and other schools in the district.
