University Sheep!

A very eloquent and boldly critical op/ed piece in today's WSJ by professor Ruth Wisse of Harvard. Ms. Wisse put aside likely backlash to write this piece which speaks to the fear university staff have to not go along with the sheep but also the "scandalous uniformity in a university community that advertises its diversity". What a shame for our children, when their minds should be opened up to all the possibilities they are instead handed blinders. The best line in Ruth's piece was in reference to Harvard's president kowtowing to the liberal bias so prevalent in our universities and describes that environment as "regnant culture of pusillanimity" (I admit I had to look up two of the 4 words! :))
