Cartoon insults, degrades food service workers

John Thompson '90's recent Slurp is a degrading insult to the decent, hard working people in food services who serve the Institute community [Oct. 26]. Thompson's words and depictions smack of classicismmistake! he meant classism -- pm and intellectual aloofness. Get with it, Thompson. These are good, honest, intelligent people who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

It is regrettable that the editors of The Tech would allow this kind of degradation to be printed, especially under the guise of a comic strip. Comics by definition cause laughter and amusement, not hurt and anger.
