It is insulting, not just to Sen. Reid, who will never again feel welcome at his alma mater, but to SUU, because they have allowed the integrity of the institution to be purchased by small-minded right-wing fanatics.

(“SUU drops Harry Reid’s name from building after protests,” August 29.) Sen. Reid is undeniably one of the most distinguished alumni ever to attend SUU, achieving the highest elected national office reached, not only by any of his fellow alumni, but by any member of his religious faith.
