Get real! And grow up!
And get the letter removed - NOW!
P.S. We all realize you are not community minded folks, but this one time
definately calls for you to be and you need to remove the letter. It is bad
enough you all have been publishing false information about the candidates,
but this is getting ridiculous and needs to stop.

>>The University respects the attempts of individuals to hold personal

>>faith-based, since the University of Idaho only believes in science.
>>The University of Idaho's position is consistent with views articulated by
