CROSSED OUT CROSSES: James Panero

CROSSED OUT CROSSES: James Panero notes that Columbia University has subtly morphed the three crosses in their crown-shaped school crest into denuded vaguely diamond-shaped blobs. Michael Newdow should be happy, at least.

Panero describes Columbia’s supremely PC gesture as being “in the spirit of radical creep”, a subject he’s written about before.
