Power To The Students

If it takes a village to raise a child, it seems like it takes a football team to dump a president. Nothing like the threat of forfeiting a big game and losing $1M to get a university braintrust in gear. At Yale, Halloween insensitivity real and perceived.

Prior to this year, I followed such stories with great interest. I guess I still have an interest, just a different one. Mizzou was one of the schools under consideration by the young miss. I doubt she would have much stomach for confrontation.

Is it too much to hope these student activists will take their passion and a bit of their anger into society and tackle corporations, politics, and such? Make a difference, there, it is hoped.

    Well, if the students are concerned about having their pain heard and validated, they’re not going to be ready for the prime time of real activism.
