On Oct. 31, writer Allison D. Bates ’05 referred to Cornell fans’ chanting of “Safety School” at Harvard games as “bizarre” (Sports, “New Ticket Policy Irks Ithaca Faithful, Opens up Seats for Harvard Fans,” Oct. 31). I would have figured that a Harvard student would understand the concept of irony, but perhaps there is some truth to the chant, after all.
