Obama Dilemma

Columbia finally paid a settlement to the victim in the Mattress Art Project case. Universities are stuck in a situation where they have to calculate which sum of money is smaller, a settlement to a slandered and expelled student or the federal funding lost if slanders and expulsions aren’t too enthusiastic. 

Thank you, Mr Obama. This truly helps higher education.

  1. The Mattress Girl farce was very entertaining to watch while it played out.

    On graduation day, the girl carried her mattress across the stage when she received her diploma, but the dean (or whoever was handing out the diplomas) then turned his back on her to pick up something, so she had to move on without getting the customary graduation handshake. The dean later said that this was “inadvertent” and that something on stage had required his attention. (It was clearly a deliberate, cowardly passive-aggressive way for him to express his displeasure without ever having to confront anyone or openly express his views.)

    A week after the graduation ceremony, the university updated its “Class Day Guidelines” to prohibit “large objects which could interfere with the proceedings or create discomfort to others in close, crowded spaces shared by thousands of people.”

    🙂 🙂 🙂


      1. At least our current Republican Secretary of Education is rolling back Title IX to its original intent, erasing Obama’s ridiculous misinterpretation of that law.
