Re: “Honor the 3rd Amendment!

Should be required reading. Say, once a week until the second amendment gave me my AR-15 cultists get it. Great essay!

Re: “Rhodes President Condemns 'Hate-Filled Essay' Written by a Student

I worked at Georgetown for 13 years and every freshman class had a few children who were not ready for prime time education. They sprayed swastikas in elevators, hung bananas at the Black House, tore down the Hannuka menorah, and tipped over the life-sized creche. Every year one of more acts were perpetrated by young men whose political bent could only be shown under the cover of darkness.

Of course, their identities were exposed eventually, and they were disciplined. To my knowledge none were expelled. A cynic will huff and suggest Daddy's money bought them an elite education. But the real reason they remained is no one NEEDS a liberal arts humanities education MORE that adolescent boys who think what they believe matters more than what other people feel and think. Sending them home means nothing to them. Scheduling them to work with the Center for Social Justice Reseearch and Teaching where they do service projects with day laborers, kids in Don Bosco Christo Rey, and serve with students who do not mirror their beliefs changes them. There is no substitute for content knowledge which Master Pietrangelo sorely lacks.

Brilliantly written. Whatever you do, don't stop writing and advocating.
