Apology from Alex Felix

From: Alexander J. Felix
Date: 28 Apr 2008 18:46:36 -0400
Subject: To the Dartmouth Community
To: [redacted]

I would like to offer a full and sincere apology for the cartoon I
authored last week. The material was insensitive and unnecessarily
personal. The cartoon was plainly not fit for print. I do hope that
our community will forgive me my lapse of judgment. I hope this
incident teaches us all, as it has me, that we must hold the campus
discourse to a far higher standard -- one worthy of Dartmouth.

Alright, so he's apologized for the insensitivity and personal nature of the cartoon - but what about the sexism and racism? I feel it's far more important that he admits his comic fits those two adjectives and makes a much more specific apology. The current wording is a joke.

second!

and what about the other guy?

Stray Beaver said...

What two adjectives?

Anonymous said...

Everyone admits the cartoon was not fit to print. We have an apology from the D's editor in chief... how about from the opinion page editors who made the actual print decision? In fact, why are their identities hidden? They are more culpable for the printing than the cartoonists.

Nathan Empsall said...

Stray - the two adjectives I used, sexism and racism. Hmm, I guess those are nouns - sexist and racist, then.

Second anon, I don't think the editor in chief's apology is enough. The cartoonists lost their jobs for their lapse in judgment; the relevant editors (O'Donnell and whoever is in charge of editing the cartoons) should lose theirs for their lapse in oversight.

Stray Beaver said...

Nathan - My concern was that your teacher was Priya.

Beaver ran away said...

I agree that the more culpable party here is the paper's editor (EIC or otherwise). The editor has the final say on what goes on the page, and is under no obligation to print something just because it crosses his or her desk. An author/cartoonist/whomever can write whatever he pleases, but the editor is the one who decides whether that work sees the light of day. She clearly failed to do her job in this instance.

Stray Beaver said...

Plus, all the bad stuff aside, it was not funny. The editor was asleep.

Nathan - By the way, I disagree with you. I think insensitive personal attacks are worse than general ones based on race or sex. What hurts you more?

Anonymous said...

It's at least a step in the right direction.

Nathan Empsall said...

Stray, re: your teacher joke - touche, touche!

Re: personal attacks vs. slurs, I think it depends on context. An individual attack would hurt me more on the personal level than being called a cracker, true, but I think advancing sexism or racism hurts society more. My heart goes out to Bonnie, but the sexism and racism is what matters in the larger discussion. The way the cartoonists attacked Bonnie must be addressed lest it come up again in another venue without Bonnie.

Would it be paranoid to ask if the D let this one through on purpose? That they knew it was going to rally sympathetic voters for the AoA against "the bigots" and sent it to print with an apology already in hand?

It seems that they were very quick to offer Alex Felix '08 up as a sacrifice, and very quick to pin the whole thing as another Phrygian conspiracy.

For example, how would a '77 from out of state have any sense of a senior's specific affiliation in a senior society? Sure enough to put this assertion in print?

Anonymous said...

Yes, it would be paranoid. Dartlog published an email identifying the author as a phrygian at the beginning of the controversy.

Anonymous said...

It definitely would be paranoid. Unfortunately sometimes the oversight process at The Dartmouth isn't as strict as it should be...trying to put out a daily college newspaper at a school this small sometimes leads to stuff slipping through. When I used to write, my stuff NEVER got edited as long as it fit in the space provided.

Anyone knows what graduate schools, if any, these two imbecils will attend. Please let me know so that I can email this horrific cartoon to these schools.

I got to play Assassin's Creed which kind of disappointed me. There is some great work in there, great work. The art is fantastic...the levels in that game are huge. The free running things works really well and feels wow power leveling great to control, though after awhile the joy and awe kind of wares off. I hated the story...the whole setting kind of frustrated me. I was so completely looking forward to playing as an assassin during the Crusades. When I first heard the wow powerleveling concept for the game and awe the screenshots I was pretty jazzed. That excitement was quickly smothered when I found out I was a descendant of Altair and I was in a simulation. Great...a game within a game. That really kind of spoiled the whole thing for me. I played about halfway through the game before I completely stopped. I think the wow gold sequel that is inevitably going to get made will be pretty good...though I think they have kind f locked themselves into the whole genetic memory story thread. There is some really great stuff in that game, but the story, and combat really kind of killed it for me. The combat is still not that great of an improvement over the POP stuff. It is decent, but it feels like it could be so much better if they would just give the player more control over the character.

I had it shipped overnight via UPS and the next day I spent all day waiting for the UPS truck to arrive. With the Christmas delivery season, it didn't arrive at my home until about 8:30pm that night. In my order was my sleek black PSP system and three game titles: Minna no Golf, Vampire Chronicles, and Ridge Racers.wow goldI would spend the next few weeks with my PSP permanently glued to my hands. Once I was finally able to pull myself away from Minna no Golf,wow goldI made the mistake of purchasing the import version of Lumines and spent another 3 weeks glued to the system. It goes without saying, I got my money's worth out of the PSP, even early on, and it was then that my poor DS system began collecting dust on the shelf.

There aren't many games in my 28 years of playing video games that I genuinely love as much as Final Fantasy X. I think it's the greatest video game ever made, and was just mind-blowing when it first came out. I got the opportunity to share this game with someone that I really cared about and it made the game even more of a moving experience for me. world of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingeverquest 2 goldeq2 platfinal fantasy 11 cheap gilbuy ffxi gilffxi gilfinal fantasy xi gilmaple story mesosmaplestory mesosI've always kept my video gaming to myself for fear of tarnishing it by sharing it with someone I was dating in the event things didn't work out, but I took the chance for once and it really paid off. maplestory mesolotro goldlotr goldlord of the ring goldrunescape goldrunescape moneysilkroad goldbuy silkroad golddofus kamaskamas dofuswarhammer goldbuy warhammer goldflyff penyabuy flyff goldflyff moneyAlthough things didn't work out in the end, it was very special to be able to share something I love so much with another person I was close to.
