Appeal of 'Red Meat' Should Be Universal

When I read that The Tech was picking up "Red Meat" as a filler comic I felt no need to write in support of it since I thought its appeal would be universal.

Justin O. Cave '98, however, writes that he finds it "obnoxious, inane, and not at all funny." I do not find "Red Meat" to be any of these things, nor does anyone else I know. "Red Meat" is easily the funniest thing to appear in The Tech since "Rookies," with the possible exception of the police log. If you are willing to remove a comic because some people find it inane and un-funny, then "Off Course" and "Dammed for Life" should have been removed long ago.
