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.
As Powerline mentioned, first the college argued it was the students who did all the bad defamation stuff. Then, at the penalties phase, the college argued that penalties would have a harsh and unfair impact on the poor innocent students. My heart is bleeding for both. Go ahead and double down, guys! Show us you mean it!
Too much of American academia is using students to push Leftism on the rest of American society.
Unfortunately a good many students are too gullible to know they're being used. Decades back, they even had me fooled, if only briefly.
Agreed this was a success, and I hope this means the cold war is getting a bit warmer, but only a bit. My B school professor used to talk about putting a frog in a pot of water and setting the heat on low. We would do well to be patient: we didn't get [ourselves] in this predicament quickly, nor will we quickly escape it.
