When I clicked the link, I saw a database error, but not Al Simone's reasons for shutting down GDT. What did he say?

Question:
Date added: 9/30/2004
Q: Dear President Simone,

I heard recently that Gracie's Dinnertime Theatre, the satirical/commentary publication on campus, was told they can no longer print from the hub. Why is this? They have done nothing wrong but express their first amendment right to free speech.
A: I continue to be disappointed in the material found in Gracie's Dinnertime Theatre. Specifically, the choice of obsence and vulgar language routinely found in the publication is in contradiction with RIT community standards.

In a letter addressed to the then editors of GDT dated Nov. 11, 2002, I wrote: "So that there will be no misunderstanding should there be another issue which, in my judgment, contains excessive sexual expressions, profanity and discussions and statements which can be unduly offensive and embarrassing to various groups on campus, all administrative financing and support will be withdrawn immediately."

Having reviewed this year's issues to date, I have decided that Institute property and resources will no longer be available for the production of Gracies Dinnertime Theatre. These resources include:
1) Computers and servers owned or supported by RIT.
2) The use of the HUB will no longer be available for the copying of the publication.
3) Funds from Institute accounts cannot be used to purchase advertisements in the publication.

This is a private university and I can not justify any RIT resources going toward this publication.
