Thoughts on Town’s New Logo’s Resemblance To the 41st President’s Most Hated Vegetable

To the Editor:

Princeton — home of world-renowned institutions: Princeton University, The Institute for Advanced Study, Forrestal Research Center, Princeton Theological Seminary, et. al.; site of pivotal battles of our Revolutionary War; one-time capitol of our fledgling nation when the Continental Congress sat in Nassau Hall; home and workplace of Einstein, a name known the world over as synonymous with “genius”; a college campus widely known as the exemplar of Collegiate Gothic architecture in the U.S. — all this to be symbolized by a cubistic rendition of the Mercer Oak (which, by the way, no longer exists), an image that looks like nothing so much as … BROCCOLI?
