Cornell Daily Sun apologizes for ‘Arts and Cunt’ reference

Cornell University Prof. Walter Cohen was identified in Friday’s Cornell Daily Sun as the “Senior Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Cunt.” The paper’s editor explains how that happened:

The paper was vandalized Thursday night as The Sun celebrated its last night of publication for the semester. About 150 people gathered at our offices during this particular occasion. This is something that The Sun has been doing every year since I first joined. We have always held this event without incident, and we are appalled that someone would attempt to compromise our integrity by sneaking this curse word into the paper.
