Letter: Purdue cartoon was disappointing

June 29, 2018

It would be hard for anyone to argue that Drew Brees is anything but a great athlete and great human being. He just did a terrific gesture for the Purdue family by spending $264,000 to purchase John Wooden’s (another great human being) jersey and allowing Purdue to display it in Mackey Arena. Why would IBJ try to diminish this good deed by mocking Purdue’s lack of basketball national championships [in its June 15 editorial cartoon]? I understand IBJ’s owner is an ardent IU fan, but this “cartoon” is a disappointment to a fair number of his subscribers.
