When I first read the Oct. 23 article "White Out shirts spark controversy," my first response was "you have got to be freakin' kidding me!"
I thought Penn Staters were smarter than to go up in arms whenever they see anything that looks like a religious symbol, especially not to be so closed-minded as to get offended by a mere T-shirt because it happens to have two perpendicular lines that could possibly look like a cross.
The student bookstore shouldn't have to take them off the shelves because a handful of P.C. whistle-blowers found a way to stir up controversy. One of the reasons why I left Virginia was the to distance myself from sheer amount of politically-correct shenanigans. Seriously, grow up. Quit making yourselves look like loud-mouthed extremists. You are only embarrassing yourselves.
