William F. Buckley, Jr. famously said:

I am obliged to confess I should sooner live in a society governed by the first two thousand names in the Boston telephone directory than in a society governed by the two thousand faculty members of Harvard University.

Reflecting on the controversy surrounding the conduct and arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., I propose an amendment to Buckley’s statement:

I am obliged to confess I should sooner live in a society governed by the first two thousand names in the Boston telephone directory [Cambridge Police] than in a society governed by the two thousand faculty members of Harvard University.
