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.
How would you like to be running Duke's PR office these days?
LaShawn has the details. Of course, the conduct of officials and the profs is the real story here. I will quote one of LaShawn's excellent commenters, one Batyah:
Where are the feminists, you ask? Just about the only thing that can get the feminists riled up these days is talk about the evil government’s refusal to subsidize daycare, or putting limits on abortion demand. Prosecution and stoning of rape victims in Iran? Clitoris clipping of small girls in Egypt? Naw . . . but the real critical issues are those things that affect pretentious, pampered yuppie women or the rights of their selected mascots (as in this alleged rape case, American “brown women,” exempting, of course, those American brown women whom they employ to raise the children that they had but don’t want to raise themselves. Those nanny women must forfeit their brown-given rights to equality and career advancement. Otherwise, who will mind the babies for the American feminists?
