Dartmouth’s descent is easy

The Dartmouth Review has compiled an excellent timeline of the latest “assault on dialogue and free speech at Dartmouth.” Brian Chen and the staff of the Dartmouth Review are to thanked for their work publicizing the story in this form.

Greta Van Susteren invited Dartmouth student Michelle Knesbach to tell the story on behalf of the college Republicans last night on her FOX News show. FOX News Insider has posted the video here. I have posted it below.

As a proud Dartmouth alum, I find this to be another sad chapter in Dartmouth’s descent. Coincidentally, my great Dartmouth teacher Professor Edward Bradley has offered some timely thoughts on Dartmouth’s pathetic leadership. He offers his thoughts in the course of an interview with the Dartmouth Review recognizing his 50 years at the college.

To borrow Virgil’s formulation, the descent is easy. It is also steep.

I reflected on my own visit with Professor Bradley a few years ago in “Speaking of metamorphoses.”
