MORE ACADEMIA

From Washington, New Jersey now to Washington State, the whacky antics of academia sound unreal, but they are. You can't make this stuff up, folks.
Mark Tapscott at Townhall.com writes today about the administration at Washington State University actually paying students to disrupt conservative presentations on campus. Although they have stopped the practice, the fact that they would even do such a thing is disturbing, and they continue with other questionable activity towards students who disagree with their left-wing views.
In the Warren County Community College case, the administration did the right thing; the result being the resignation of the offending professor. In Washington State, it is the administration which is the problem.
How to solve it?
The key word here is state - Washington State University. As I have mentioned before, with public funds (read tax money) feeding this institution, it is up to the public to demand change and accountability. Washingtonians must demand, through the State Legislature, their elected representatives, who also just happen to control appropriations, that such activities must be stopped.
Although the college administration may have stopped paying protesters, their continued pursuit of an extremist agenda and placing students in the middle of it, would demand more than their saying "we're sorry", and now everything's ok. No, what is needed is for those behind this outrage to be removed from their posts at the university.
This is a state institution, accountable to the state; let the state be accountable to its people for a change and solve this problem an of out-of-control educational establishment.

Nooo... Warren County Community College is in Washington, New Jersey. (Actually not too far from the great Cheeto-Eater himself, actually) It was an attempt to play on words here.

No, closer to Phillipsburg, which is right across from Easton. Allentown and Bethlehem are but a short drive away, with Mr. Ott not far at all.

Do ya think anybody in Washington state government will do anything about it? Call Patty Murray, maybe, for a giggle together?

Cheetos? Yeesh! Prefer M&Ms, myself. The Blue ones, too! LOL

Now was somebody going to make some cheese-steaks? :D
