Yup, we're the yardstick 

Dave posted on some racial incidents at Bethel College this spring, and Bethel's response received favorable press ... with a little swipe at SCSU at the same time.
few places present a more suitable environment for hard lessons than a college campus. Problem solving, brainstorming and enlightenment should be the hallmark of every place of higher learning. The young people at Bethel are learning an ugly lesson in an environment many of them considered protected. However, it's not like this is the first time racial hatred appeared on a Minnesota campus � numerous charges of discrimination and hate crimes have been made at St. Cloud State University in recent years. The University of St. Thomas has coped with a few outbreaks of hate crime, as did Macalester College about four years ago.
Yup, we're sure "putting this behind us", eh, Roy?
