Columbia Dumps OWS Course



Text  



Zounds! The injustice of it all! Columbia University has canceled a spring course devoted to the Occupy Wall Street protests — the brainchild of an OWS protester-prof that was light on reading but heavy on requiring students to work extensively on “ongoing OWS projects.”

Students are still free, of course, to engage in such projects, which include breaking into a foreclosed home and installing a family in it, farming to provide food for the Occupation, and occupying the New Hampshire primary by disrupting candidates’ appearances.

But, alas, because of an attack of good sense at Columbia, they won’t be rewarded with college credits for such hijinks.
