LAS CRUCES, N.M. - New Mexico State University's mascot, Pistol Pete, is being disarmed. University officials have also stripped the word "Pistol" from Pete's name. The new logo shows Pete twirling a lasso. The old Pete toted a pistol.

The full story is here.

The decision came after Pete was involved in numerous scandals. The straw that broke the camel's back: Last month Pete spent an evening downing Tequila before brandishing his pistol and shooting wildly up and down the streets of Las Cruces. No one was hurt. Pete was charged with reckless endangerment and sentenced to probation as well as alcohol counseling. In a rare television interview, Pete blamed the event on his father, Child Abuser Mike.

Pistol Pete, in happier times
