One of my favorite bloggers is Mark Perry, who teaches economics and finance at University of Michigan-Flint. Perry recently borrowed a page from Saul Alinsky’s book by insisting that the other side (in this case, Michigan State) live up to its own rules. Read all about it on Perry’s Carpe Diem blog.
The dispute centers on the women-only lounge at MSU, a clear violation of not only federal law but also, Perry notes, the university’s own rules. Naturally, all hell broke loose when Perry argued that the lounge was indefensible. The voices always raised in favor of “inclusivity” and “diversity” suddenly turned very hostile.
