“WHAT LIBERAL FACULTY?”: Stefan Beck of The New Criterion’s Weblog writes:

So, let’s have a look at the record, shall we? Daniel Pipes, taunted and booed at Berkeley. Antonin Scalia, denied “endorsement” by sixteen professors at Amherst. Former terrorist, welcomed with open arms at Dartmouth. And still they ask, “What liberal faculty?”

On the other hand, when you become The Establishment, you give the hipper kids something to rebel against. Which may be why, as Prof. Reynolds writes, the left has lost its teen spirit, especially on campus. And why longtime rock and roll insider and leftwing booster Danny Goldberg is also upset.
