"Boone is a part of our history, one that is treasured by many alumni and friends as a symbol of the University they knew three and four decades ago, and we are certainly an institution that honors its past."Nothing lasts forever and when you replace your mascots as often as most people replace the tires on their automobiles, the only constant at DU is change. The two "Spirit Murals" in Magness Arena went under the knife this week and a nice little piece of history was lost forever.
This is what happens when the line blurs between running a university and acting like a Third-World despot.
