I was perusing the latest issue of the Daily D, which I often do for comic relief (after I've read the NRO and the Review Online), and almost choked on my morning coffee. Dartmouth College now has a Dean of Pluralism. I am convinced that my calendar is incorrect and this is the April Fool's issue. Or possibly they now run an April Fools-style spoof issue on Halloween as well? Should the alumni vote to become a satellite branch of Brown? Diversitymouth College is rapidly becoming a joke. How can people possibly take our school seriously. Do we?Read about Mr. Woon and his new position here. If there's any justice, Mr. Woon will soon be exploring the plurality of employment-status as one of thirty.
Either way, now that I live in Houston, I'm considering telling people that I went to Texas A&M (home of the George Bush Presidential library).
Also read about "diversity seats" in Amherst's student senate. Oddly, one was to have been allotted to a conservative (how's that for a minority group?), until recently.
