The University of Central Florida convened a panel of students and administrators to address whether Webster Cook, the student who absconded with the Host and then returned It a week later, violated the code of student discipline.  The panel  voted unanimously to dismiss all the charges against him despite the range of options available to punish this despicable act.  At the very least, a disciplinary warning is warranted to send a message that the concerns of Catholics are taken seriously.  In contrast, the student government took swift action by impeaching Mr. Cook.  Its investigation, which could lead to his dismissal from his government position, should be completed by the end of the month.
