Yesterday, K-Lo mentioned the petition in support of Bill Ayers that has been making the rounds in academe (when K-Lo and Jonah imposters are not signing it). At his Pajamas Media website (Roger’s Rules), our friend Roger Kimball has some thoughts on the matter.
Roger is a singular authority on this subject, and on that score I commend to you the newly released third edition of his 1990 classic, Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education. It is updated it with a new introduction from the author. I can’t think of anything more timely.
