    With three semesters gone, the list of dubious academic achievements of 2008 is a long one but we will try to whittle it down to:

    • Lionizing Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, himself a tenured professor on, among other outlets, the website supportbillayers.org;

    • Demanding a federal bailout by the U. S. Congress, the outgoing Bush Administration, the incoming Obama government or any combination of the above while sitting on billion-dollar endowments;

    • Insisting on academic freedom for professors while their students fail to answer basic historical questions;

    • Denying political biases while using class time to get out the vote for Barack Obama;

    • Annual productions of The Vagina Monologues that claim to elevate women while reducing them to body parts;

    • Playing the Race Card while still failing to attract black students, leading to, concurrently, an explosion in courses on racial studies and increasingly urgent pleas to boost minority enrollment;

    • Birthing plots to bankrupt the nation financially, politically and culturally—from federal bailouts to UN programs and treaties to laws that grant homosexuals the same privileges that married couples enjoy;

    • Pushing for nationalized health care despite the well-documented failure of same;

    • Maintaining the fiction of global warming in the face of plummeting temperatures; and

    • Turning prime academic real estate over to radical Islamic groups under the guise of “tolerance.”

    My sister would take issue on this about "The Vagina Monologues". The YWCA branch she runs had a show of it a couple of years ago, although perhaps the author of the article would argue that the YWCA is a more appropriate venue than a college campus.

    I haven't seen it. My sister tried to get me to go, and I just wasn't that interested. According to her, it's about women having mixed feelings about their bodies/vaginas. Some of the characters are women who have been raped or abused, and have hostility toward their bodies. Whatever, it's not my kind of thing.

    look it up on youtube. It's GROSS - nasty - and completely inappropriate for a catholic campus.
