It looks like the school is going to concede and give dining services workers an annual salary of $35,000. Knowing the way unions operate, in a decade or less, you’ll be able to make $50K a year working in the Harvard dining hall.

The newest frontier in political correctness on college campuses is the destruction of Halloween.

Certain costumes have been deemed a form of cultural appropriation, offensive to others’ sensibilities, and are therefore not tolerated. When a Yale professor suggested students chill out about Halloween costumes, she and her husband were verbally abused and...
