Man Bites Dog (Gloriously)

by Jay Nordlinger

The happiest news I have heard all month comes in a news article headed “Ohio State trustees won’t reinstate band director.” Said band director was fired “after an investigation showed he knew about, but failed to stop, a sexualized band culture.” (I am quoting the article.) I would have thought that a sexualized culture was mandatory in today’s America, especially on campus.

The chairman of the university’s board said, “We consider the matter closed and we are moving forward as a university.”

Wow. Not only a breath of fresh air, but practically a hurricane of fresh air. OSU’s stance is a blow for freedom — real freedom, not the bondage that today’s America mistakes for freedom.

The Corner

The one and only.
