We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
“We are working with the fraternity on a multifaceted remedy that will require training and other measures be successfully completed before the fraternity can resume its recruitment efforts or host social events to ensure that our values are upheld, and that such a situation will not recur,” Liliana Rodriguez, associate dean at Swarthmore, told The Huffington Post on Wednesday.
"Their values"? This is the college with a co-ed nude masturbation club. That's higher ed in the USA. However, the "training and other measures" sounds like S & M fun. I think this lady dean has whips in her closet. That sounds more exciting than Physical Chemistry but perhaps at Swarthmore they might find a way to call it physical chemistry.
You know that painting. I don't need to tell you or any Swarthmore kid.
There is at least one good thing to say about Swarthmore: Obama was denied admission to Swarthmore. OTOH, had Obama been admitted to Swarthmore, as a commenter points out, he may have followed a common Swarthmore path and became a professor instead of President. So maybe it was a bad thing that Obama wasn't admitted to Swarthmore.
Yep, men at Swarthmore. Since 1865. It has always been co-ed, although in the early days the campus was kind of divided between men's and women's sections, for propriety's sake.
Because of the similarity in names, Swarthmore has been confused with Skidmore (one of the "Seven Sisters") for years and years.
