The Mail ARROGANCE OR SCORN?

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

Concerning your review of The Greatest Musical Ever Sung: is it a newspaper's business to avoid "bad taste" or to report on what is happening and the manner in which it happens? I am surprised that three professors of English-men who have to do professionally with Swift, Brecht, Poyce, Mark Twain-signed a letter identifying as "arrogance" and nothing else the expression of scorn (if it was that: the musical's title indicates parody) for what others hold sacred. The "sacred" is a function of the collective consciousness; as such it is bound at intervals to fall into decay and to be visited with expressions of collective dissent, like vulgar satire.
