    MB530 - here's the rest of the negative article you cited.

    "While it seems that the protesters had fun playing their anti-war games and stymieing military recruiters from doing their job, it also sounds like some false reports may have been filed. From what I gathered in the article and heard around campus, it sounded like non-gay activists also participated in the childish shenanigans and filed bias-related incident reports. If in fact this is true, and I would be willing to bet that it is, in filing the reports the non-gay students would be submitting reports to the Cornell administration that were false. You can't be discriminated against for being gay if you are not, in fact, gay.

    After doing some research, it appears that such actions would violate Title III, Section II, Subsection C of the Campus Code of Conduct which states as a violation, "To furnish false information to the University with intent to deceive." The Judicial Administrator should look into this to see if any false reports were filed, and if so, they should hold the offenders accountable.

    Regardless, we can't allow this movement to succeed here at Cornell."

    Here's a link to a very positive article regarding Cornell ROTC written more recently in the student newpaper.

    Check it out. If your son wants to be a soldier he won't be scared off by a few pro-gay activists.

    "you see offices for all three military branches — the Air Force, Army and Navy "


    He must mean "military branches with ROTC programs..."

    LITS - thanks for pointing that out :smile:

    I was glad for the generally genial (even appreciative) tone of the piece. Maybe Mr. Sermonis will go on to be a professional journalist after college and his perspective will make that leap, as well.
