In Response to: Tradition, Tradition

It is sad that we find more and more ways to expunge our heritage and homogenize our discourse (“Changing Times at Triangle,” Nov. 9). Parody and the ability to laugh at ourselves are basic to human happiness, even survival. The kickline is pure entertainment, mainly incongruity and sight gags. You can get by with editing its theme and message, but the all-male kickline — as David Walter ’11’s article pointed out — is part of Triangle’s birthright. Don’t sell it out for a mess of pottage.
