Maybe that would have been most merciful for the aging hippies that populate America's university faculites. A Worldnet Daily column by a Hillsdale college student on the opposition of Harvard students to the ouster of Lawrence Summers contains this shot across the bow:
The faculty is dominated by left-wing '60s radicals, all of them aging despite their former fantasies. It is perhaps from the realization that the sands of time are sinking and a new generation is rising on campus at odds with the values of the '60s that makes the Faculty of Arts and Sciences so desperate.
So what's the new rule? Don't trust anyone under 50?
