If you want to read all the gory details in this sordid case, visit www.OregonStateOutrage.com.

If you thought the last Robinson-DeFazio bout was a humdinger, stick around. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Confused visitors will be forgiven for thinking Oregon State University is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Congressman Pete DeFazio and the “progressive-socialist” wing of the Democratic Party.
Or for likening what’s going on there to political retribution as practiced in Third World thugocracies. The idea that three outstanding students – PhD candidates at OSU – could face dismissal, and worse, shortly before receiving their degrees, is simply shocking.

That this could be happening because their father had the temerity to challenge an entrenched 12-term Democratic congressman (and OSU earmark purveyor) could make people think the university is in Zimbabwe,
Comments:
The father, Art Robinson, is the scientist who created a petition some years back stating that there is no convincing evidence for global warming. It was signed by moree than 32,000 people with degrees in physical science, including 9,000 Ph.D.s.
