V. Tech: C’Mon, Betty, Get Real

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

[A]t Yale, the dean of student affairs, Betty Trachtenberg, reacted to the Virginia Tech murders by taking decisive action: She banned all stage weapons from plays performed on campus. After protests from the drama department, she modified her decisive action to “permit the use of obviously fake weapons” such as plastic swords.

Now that’s the kind of lionhearted leadership sure to stop mass murderers in their tracks!
