Western Massachusetts update - There are liberal professors here!

Hat tip to American Realpolitik for beating me to this story in the NY Times about how the anti-war faculty at Amherst College seems to be out-of-step with the students they mean to indoctrinate...I mean, "teach."

Certainly not all students are pro-war or all faculty anti. But "there's a much higher percentage of liberal professors than there are liberal students," said Ben Falby, the student who organized the protest at Amherst only to find that it had more professors than students.

The article implies that the students are on to the professors, who apparently care less about discussion and debate than they do about their own moral vanity.
