Take me off your list 

John Fund has been hammering the administration of Yale about the Taliban student, and now reports that someone in the law school's alumni office has been suspended after emailing two alums who disagreed with the admission of that student. The suspicion is that the official got their email addresses from a private database, and then used an anonymous account to call them "retarded" and "disgusting". I'd say it's to be expected; it's why I try not to leave my address in the hands of alumni offices.

I'm not as bothered as some over admitting the jihadi to Yale. It simply shows once again that elite universities have become incapable of making moral decisions. Readers of this blog will find that no surprise.
