The Right take on higher education.

Re: Fort Hood and University PC


Dorothy Rabinowitz has a sharp piece in today’s Wall Street Journal on the response to the Ft. Hood murders.

Especially appalling is the statement by Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey she quotes: “This terrible event would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty.”

That sounds like precisely the sort of thing a college president would say. Many college leaders utter such inane things as “diversity is our foremost goal.” We expect such vacuities in education — but in the military?
