Thanks to James Taranto for pointing out the Yale Daily News story yesterday rescinding the diktat banning theatrical weapons from Yale stages. Dean Betty Trachtenberg had promulgated the ban. She sounds mad as hell about the criticism to which it was subjected:
“I think people should start thinking about other people rather than trying to feel sorry for themselves and thinking that the administration is trying to thwart their creativity,” Trachtenberg said. “They’re not using their own intelligence….We have to think of the people who might be affected by seeing real-life weapons.”
Funny that Dean Trachtenberg doesn’t seem to think about students who are affected by the sight of administrators issuing ludicrous diktats.
