LETTER

Stripper Payment Source Disputed

The thesis of the Dec. 3 article “EC Strippers Raise Debate Over Dorm Funds Use,” by Mike Hall, relies on a single incorrect point. The fact is, dorm funds were not used to support this event, and the students responsible for the strippers were not reimbursed. Hall proceeds to draw parallels between MIT and the University of Wisconsin, and reports students’opinions about the incorrect point. I would like to make the request that The Tech print a retraction, as such a carelessly researched and written story only serves to damage the reputations of East Campus, [EC hall] Second West, and MIT, and to give students the wrong idea about the events for which their taxes are used.
