Carnegie Mellon University: Bigots and Turds

Consider Professor Golan Levin's class that O'Connor was taking in the School of Design: Electronic Design II.  Not only did O'Connor take this class, but so did Connie Dai.

Dai's final project for CMU credit, which she describes here, is a "lovely be-jeweled turd that talks."  For this she received academic credit from (purportedly) one of America's elite universities.

Andrew Mellon should be a household name.  In addition to financing the industrial growth of America, he made one of the most philanthropic gifts to the United States ever -- his art collection and the building to hold it on the National Mall, the National Gallery of Art.  Here you will find original works from Mellon's collection by da Vinci, Monet, Rembrandt, van Gogh, Raphael, and more.  There are no talking be-jeweled turds.
