    I don’t know whether to point out that December was four months ago or April Fools Day was five days ago.

    And speaking of neutrally playing a speech, you know when I took a class in college about the Third Reich, that material was actually presented pretty neutrally. Well, about as neutrally as you can get from a professor I nicknamed Miss Menopause in my head. The gloom, fear, and other negative emotions come naturally, and then in the discussion everyone says something a little different. The miracle was that there even were “two sides” in a totalitarian country.

    The principles of the “Chicago Statement“, now adopted by about 100 colleges and universities in the States, would serve as a good model for the Canucks. But, what, what, although we invaded Canada a half dozen times in the War of 1812, we didn’t finish the job and we really don’t have a lot to say about what they do, eh?

    What? Tom? You expect reason and logic from someone who looks at some folks at academia as power players?

      Oh, I don’t know. I just have a hard time figuring out why an incident at a minor university in a foreign country is treated as critically important. It just seems odd.

    Folks that argue against non-discrimination laws complaining about “wrongthink-persecution” will never not be bitterly ironic.
