Illiniwek’s Last Dance

chief.gifThe prolonged Pro-Chief / Anti-Chief battle at my alma mater seems to be winding down… the Fighting Illini’s mascot will be performing his last dance. To be honest, I had my opinions about the controversy when I was in college, but never took an active stance. It’s sort of like the Confederate flag debate… some see it as a symbol of racism and oppression, others see it as a symbol of heritage and pride. Looking past my personal beliefs, I can empathize with both sides.
