Much Ado…About Not Too Much

Well, it went fine. For all the hullabaloo, outsized security precautions and trash talk from the lefty blogs, the evening went just fine. The [UMass] Amherst College Republicans did a grand job of making it hard for would-be trouble makers to make trouble. But it must be said that the conspicuously leftwing attendees were polite and pretty open to my arguments (which, I confess, I tried to pitch to them rather than throw at them).

More in the morning, but I must say I can’t remember visiting a campus where the leftwingness seemed more intense or pronounced. And I’ve been to a lot of campuses.

Update: Zoiks. A reader corrects me. I did know where I was, I just didn’t write what I knew (corrected in brackets above). My apologies:

Hi Mr. Goldberg,

I enjoyed your visit last night, however, it seems that you’ve confused our school with that Amherst College down the street.

You visited the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
