Notre Dame Editor Resigns

The editor of Notre Dame's student newspaper, Kara King, has resigned in the wake of an anti-gay cartoon published last week.
King resigned in a letter published in the paper Monday. In the letter, she wrote, “A miscommunication between another editor and myself led to the comic running without me first reading and approving the material. Regardless, no excuse can justify the comic even being considered for publication, and the duty to censor it fell to me. I failed to do so, and am solely responsible for providing a forum for this message of hate.” The offending antigay editorial cartoon called a baseball bat the “quickest way to turn a fruit into a vegetable.”
