    Although I personally disagree with many of the views that Senator Rick Santorum enumerated on Wednesday night, I do recognize the importance of respecting a United States Senator. A particular line in this article, “Number of Kids: Too Fucking Many”, is incredibly insensitive. Though Senator Santorum has seven living children, he and his wife both suffered an immense personal when their premature son (born at 20 weeks) died only 2 hours after birth.

    I often enjoy the witty and satirical humor in the Flipside’s publications, but I feel that this is a topic that should be addressed with more integrity and respect. Thank you.
