Full Kroc

A reader has tipped me off to something called the Joan B. Kroc Center for International Peace Studies at Notre Dame. It is, of course, one of those places that refuses even to consider the notion that a strong national defense just might possibly have something to do with peace. Kroc apparently has supported her little campus commune with $70 million–paid for by your Big Macs and Happy Meals. Writes my correspondent: “When I found out about that little tidbit, I wrote off McDonald’s from not only my diet, but my posterity’s as well.”

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
