No, but they are getting swamped with mail and phone calls.

Thank you for your e-mail regarding Dr. John Leaños’ recent public display of anti-war posters featuring Cpl. Pat Tillman. In response, I am compelled to state unequivocally that I personally found Dr. Leaños’ decision to use Pat’s likeness and fictional first-person narrative as the vehicle for his message to be offensive and insensitive to the Tillman family. Furthermore, I wish to clarify that the ASU administration had no prior knowledge that the posters in question were going to be created or displayed. In keeping with our university’s longstanding tradition of academic freedom and integrity, a comprehensive administrative review of this matter has already been initiated.



As always, ASU continues to be enormously proud of its affiliation with Pat Tillman. Pat’s spirit, talent and noble sacrifice represent the very best of ASU and we were fortunate to count him among our Sun Devil family. Since his untimely passing, ASU has hosted a memorial service in Pat’s honor, joined with the Arizona Cardinals to create the Pat Tillman Memorial Scholarship in the W.P. Carey School of Business, and will soon retire Pat’s jersey (#42) at the ASU/Washington State football game on November 13, 2004. ASU representatives have also agreed to serve in an advisory capacity to the Pat Tillman Foundation. As ideas are considered regarding the establishment of a permanent memorial, you can be certain that ASU’s respectful acknowledgement of his memory will continue for many years to come.



Once again, I very much appreciate your direct communication on this issue and your continued allegiance to Pat’s legacy.

Academic Freedom - Aren't those the code words for "he's tenured and the Academic Senate would be a real pain if we did anything so we aren't going to do anything about it.???

My wifes college did something for Abu Mumia Jamal (?) lets just say that for two years we kept telling them to cram it when they asked for money. they finally came up with a BS statement on how the students did it and the Administration had no control. So our answer was you guys clearly fucked up their education if they thought that was appropriate. NO MONEY

I wrote directly to the asshole who made the posters. No reply. I'm not surprised. He's just like millions of other coward leftists who conduct "hit and run" media attacks and then run and hide behind the 1st Amendment.

Fucking cowards.
