A reprieve for the Minuteman

He's probably going to get some sort of retrograde facelift, and I fear they'll take his musket away, but the UMass Minuteman is staying, at least for now. An outpouring of support from Massachusetts residents — and, perhaps more persuasively, an upsurge in orders for Minuteman schwag — has led the school to reconsider its decision to replace the fellow with a gray wolf.
