What's the point of having irony machines if they always have to be disconnected before something ironic happens? ;)

There is also the fact that Iowa State exists on the public dole and Grove City does not. Although, that does not keep some academicians from trying to establish their own fiefdoms at public institutions wherein they entertain the delusion that they are not accountable to the taxpayers.

That may be the dumbest thing said on this board today (and that is quite a feat).

Did you look at the list of institutions on the AAUP censure list (linked above)? Most of those institutions accept public funds. And do you have any evidence, other than listening to Limbaugh, that there are many administrators at public institutions who "entertain the delusion that they are not accountable to the taxpayers"?

Does the concept of looking before you leap ever occur to you, Robert?

I have been telling people for years to stop using fragile, electronic irony meters and go back to the standard, a proper Iron-O-Meter, powered by a Corliss Engine


It takes XIXth century bronze, cast iron, and tool steel to stand up to XIXth century TARD.

And it remains wise to avoid manual irony detection at all costs.

I had in mind (some) faculty, not administrators. And my pundit of choice is Pat Buchanan, not Rush Limbaugh.

Part of the myopia all of us here share, Henry. 99% of the world does not involve creationism.

Excellent choice of pundits, Robert. Of course when you have to choose between a drug-addled pedarast and a Nixon-advising anti-Semitic culture warrior, it must be tough.

Re your other comment, two points. I know for a fact that faculty members have very little say in how universities operate. So to bash on a few faculty members for the sins of the universities is remarkably ignorant. Second point, re the taxpayers. Most public universities get precious little funding from their state taxpayers these days. At my institution, for example, even though the word "state" appears in the name, we get less than a quarter of our funding from the state. Most other state institutions get substantially less. So perhaps that accountability needs to go both ways before your naive expectations can be met.

Rush is a pill popper, no doubt, but I am aware of no persuasive evidence that he is a pederast.

As for your comments about Pat Buchanan, while your credulity is commendable, the charge of antisemitism is derived from the same folks who brought us the Iraq War and are currently fomenting for war with Iran.

Finally, I agree that most faculty have little say in how their universities are run on the whole, but that is ancillary to my claim that some think they are insulated from accountability to the people (in the case of public universities).

And this is supposed to be an argument for what, exactly? Even a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while.

Furthermore Pat needs little help from others in regard to expressing anti-Semitic notions. From here      
Quote
He referred to Capitol Hill as "Israeli-occupied territory." (St. Louis Post Dispatch, 10/20/90)

After Cardinal O'Connor criticized anti-Semitism during the controversy over construction of a convent near Auschwitz, Buchanan wrote: "If U.S. Jewry takes the clucking appeasement of the Catholic cardinalate as indicative of our submission, it is mistaken. When Cardinal O'Connor of New York seeks to soothe the always irate Elie Wiesel by reassuring him 'there are many Catholics who are anti-Semitic'...he speaks for himself. Be not afraid, Your Eminence; just step aside, there are bishops and priests ready to assume the role of defender of the faith." (New Republic, 10/22/90)

There's more to read at that site. Or you can try to forget that William F. Buckley wrote a scathing 1991 article in the National Review, suggesting that Buchanan was anti-Semitic. John Podhoretz levels the same charge in 2006. Similar accusations have been found on the other wing, as documented with these stories and columns in the New York Times. When both the right and the left agree on something, it might be time to pay attention to it.

No doubt some of them think that they deserve the Nobel Prize as well, but again, so what? What significant problems arise from the delusions of those few? More importantly, what solution would you propose that would solve this horrendous problem that you have identified?

Guiellermo has a new job at Ball State U.

Interesting after the whole thing with Eric Hedin.  Jerry Coyne's carping about it.

For myself, I hope they told him not to bring any of his religious ideas into the classroom.  If he doesn't, I don't really care.

I don't get it.  I know two astronomers who won't have jobs in another month and they hire this guy?

Is this another "controversy generates more hits" ploy by a university?
