Money not for nothing 

Courtesy of loyal reader Dr. Burt Dubow:

With budgets so tight, any type of gift or endowment is most welcome at universities, but perhaps some are too welcome. Jeff Jacoby covers the case of Harvard Divinity School and its Zayed International Center for Coordination and Followup. Zayed is a sheikh in Kuwait whose work has been labeled as anti-Semitic. Due to the continued pressure, Sheikh Zayed has removed funding from the Center. The Center is in the process of taking down its website, as you can see from the Google cache.
