Academic Stupidity on Parade
Just pick any one-except for Hillsdale College in Michigan. Just throw a dart at a US map and see where it lands. How about Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University? You would think that in the heart of Hoosier Country, common sense would prevail, right?
The latest madcap report concerns a Franciscan monk spotted walking around campus in robes. That led to a campus alert that the KKK was loose on campus (Hat tip Campus Reform).
Thank God there were no stray cats wandering around IU. Somebody might have reported an escaped tiger from the local zoo.
Then there is the University of New Mexico, so far removed from zany places like Berkeley and Harvard, right? Again-think again. Here students are in a tither over the University of New Mexico's seal, which portrays a frontiersman and what looks like a Spanish conquistador. The little rascals think that this represents an affront to indigenous Americans. Yet the seal was designed by a Native American (hat tip Campus Reform).
