timiditas et deditio

A more appropriate motto for Yale, "timiditas et deditio" (cowardice and surrender) to replace their current and obviously outdated motto of “lux et veritas” (light and truth) in light of the recent decision by the Yale University Press to publish a book about the recent world wide brouhaha over the publication of cartoons of Mohammad (good for them so far) and not actually include the very cartoons that all the "fuss" was about. This means that the book will talk all about it but not actually show any of them so that the reader can make up their own mind as to the offensiveness of these cartoons in comparison to the uproar that they caused. Brilliant!

For anyone that is still unaware, you can catch up (and see the cartoons) here.
