Reader 9thDistrictNeighbor and her husband are Kenyon College graduates.

We previously wrote about Anna Shireman-Grabowski, a Middlebury College student who, with non-student activists, removed a flag memorial on 9/11 this year remembering the victims of the World Trade Center attack, claiming solidarity with the Native American Abenaki tribe:

We ran this over at College Insurrection last week, but I think it’s worth running again an excerpt from Hen Mazzig, An Israeli Soldier to American Jews: Wake up!

As a young Israeli who had just completed five years of service in the IDF, I looked forward to my new job educating...

Want to know how we lost the campuses and a generation?  Because we allowed people like Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, one of the Duke Group of 88 professors, to indoctrinate our children:

At various points in his teaching or scholarship, Bonilla-Silva has used other names for the country of which he is a citizen. In his most...
