Harvard is crimson

With anger over Obamacare.  This is the most delicious story to come out of the Grey Lady in ages: "Harvard Ideas On Health Care Hit Home, Hard."
For years, Harvard’s experts on health economics and policy have advised presidents and Congress on how to provide health benefits to the nation at a reasonable cost. But those remedies will now be applied to the Harvard faculty, and the professors are in an uproar.
It only gets better from there.  Professors at Harvard earn just shy of 200 large and now they're whinging about having to pay a $250 deductible.  Also: did you like going to Harvard Medical School hospitals?  Not so fast!
To create a network of high-value providers, Harvard would probably need to exclude some of its own teaching hospitals, or discourage their use.
Great stuff.  Take it away, William F. Buckley:
I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.
