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.
