Tofu Wieners

"How liberal is the University of Colorado at Boulder? The campus hot-dog stand sells tofu wieners. A recent pro-marijuana rally drew a crowd of 10,000, roughly a third the size of the student body. And according to one professor’s analysis of voter registration, the 800-strong faculty includes just 32 Republicans. Chancellor G.P. 'Bud' Peterson surveys this landscape with unease. A college that champions diversity, he believes, must think beyond courses in gay literature, Chicano studies and feminist theory. 'We should also talk about intellectual diversity,' he says."

Uh, yeah.

Does anyone wonder why most Americans look at academia and scratch their heads? Full story here.

I believe their humanist philosophy and revisionist history is finally becoming confusing to them.

You're right Stephen.

It's my pleasure.

BTW, I have not read your book yet, but I really enjoyed Still Standing, by Franklin Springs. Keep up the good work!

U. of Colorado is one of the training grounds for "diversity studies." Included in this unholy mess is "white studies." The highly paid trainers who get their "educations" from this august institution preach some of the most ghastly material to captive audiences of students as well as corporate and government employees. It's amazing what lack of adult supervision does, and how easy it is to embarass these flower children.
