Yale hits it big, again
Yale students protest treatment of women according to an article covered by CNN.com, after being picked up by the AP. Actually, they were protesting Yale president Rick Levin's refusal to condemn the comments of fellow Ivy League president Larry Summers's comments about women—but we all know how I feel about that. I'd rather draw your eye to something my brother pointed out: "Pro-union graduate students made it clear that they saw Thursday's rally as part of their union drive. The group is still regrouping from a 2003 vote in which graduate students rejected the union."

Got that? As my brother put it, "they're trying to unionize people who voted against unionization."

Bear in mind, these are people that go to Yale—doesn't bode well for the future of my alma mater's reputation, does it?

My first and probably last visit, I'm sorry to say. Why is it that, even though you have an ivy league eduction, after about five minutes of reading your entries I was able to predict all of your subsequent opinions before reading them? Is this some sort of copycat branding you've come up with to try to grow your site? What do you think that says to me about the effort you are making to advance public discourse in a genuine way worthy of your education, rather than just scoring imaginary points in front of an imaginary audience? If you have this blog going because you believe in a particular ideology, why bother? That ideology will do just fine without you defending it.

I think you know what I mean.

You can do better!
