Editorial: Vote yes to retire 'Fighting Sioux' controversy at UND
Posted: Monday, June 11, 2012
"By now, just about everything that can be said about UND's Fighting Sioux nickname has been said. And we get the sense North Dakotans are pretty tired of the debate.
Count that as one more reason to vote "yes" on Measure 4 and let UND retire the name.
Because if the "no" votes win and UND is forced to keep the name, then the one thing we know for sure is that the arguing will continue. Worse yet, the dispute will step up in intensity, widening the divisions and deepening the bitterness that have been growing over the past year."
