Good News: "Boston U Cleans Up Foul Language at Games"

If you are watching a sporting event at Boston University, watch your mouth. School officials have announced a new policy banning swearing along with sexist and racist chants.

BU's Dean of Students, Kenneth Elmore, said, "We wanted to make clear that games should be spirited and lively. But standing and shouting obscenities does not have a place. I don't equate school spirit with the yelling of obscenities."

I absolutely could not agree more. Of course, students have already complained about a violation of freedom of speech. Being college students, some will rebel. I personally hope BU stays firm and creates a safe environment for all fans to enjoy their games.
