Harvard: The Republic Of Idiocy*

Did anyone else read Harvard University President Drew Gilpin Faust's back page, full page, twaddle in the NYTimes Book Review this weekend? Must MC do all the heavy lifting on this lazy Labor Day weekend? Fine. At least we are out of the Texas heat and humidity.

This affirmative action president of Harvard actually wrote, or more likely had written for her, the following:

"Universities are meant to be producers not just of knowledge but also of (often inconvenient) doubt. They are creative and unruly places, home to a polyphony of voices."

Oh bartender! MC will have what she's having.

Is she out of her mind or so far into her own private Idaho there is no difference?

Universities these days are lock step in thought and deed; a liberal bastion if ever there was one.

Yet here is the president of Harvard losing her mind in public. Pathetic.

Click on the title of this post to read the article.

*"Drew" wrote a book that made her president of Harvard: "The Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War." It may be a good book: MC hasn't read it. Her piece in the NYTimes? Yes, we read it. Color us unimpressed. See above.
