What a weekend for the Tribune editorial pages!

It went from the high point of the op-ed piece of Don Gale (one of the wisest persons in Utah) regarding STEM education alone not being adequate to teach our young people tolerance, understanding and social skills.

Then the low point came Sunday morning with Pat Bagley's totally insensitive and offensive cartoon using a reference to the hundreds of missing girls in Nigeria in depicting Republicans bringing back the Monica Lewinsky affair from President Clinton's days.

Bagley (and his editorial handlers) missed something very important in their education days. Don Gale, could you provide them with some remedial education?
