The University of Louisville has apologized after its president, James R. Ramsey, and other university officials drew sharp criticism for appearing in a photograph in stereotypical Mexican costumes, complete with sombreros, reports The Courier-Journal, a newspaper in Louisville, Ky.

The newspaper published the picture earlier this week in a photo gallery about a university-owned mansion. The costumed officials were pictured at a Halloween party there.  Happy Halloween all!
