Just Sayin'...

Yours truly, April 22, 2014:
Have you ever noticed that the preponderance of the truly hard core left-wing bigotry and petty totalitarianism in higher education emanates from the crappiest of schools?
I think these unhinged types are trying to one-up the somewhat softer (but still crazy) gentry liberalism of the more elite institutions.
Kevin Williamson, May 16, 2014:
Brandeis disinvites Ayaan Hirsi Ali; Smith chases off Christine Lagarde of the IMF; Rutgers rejects Condoleezza Rice; and, now, Haverford scares off former Berkeley chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau.
Anybody else notice that the trend here is hysteria among students at pretty good but not that good colleges? I suspect that there is some intellectual overcompensation at work here.
  As my 12-yr old likes to say, "Hey, I'm just sayin'..."
