Dartmouth's in Town Again

That’s an old (and fairly dumb) college song, for those of you who (justifiably) don’t recognize it. But I put it up just to amuse myself while I publicly announce my vote, as a Dartmouth alumnus, in the latest round of college alumni voting. Not long after some of us Green alums online waged a minor insurrection against the moribund manner in which Ivy League trustee “elections” are conducted and, to our surprise, won… the inevitable thermidor began. Today, I voted “no” on thermidor (an amendment not-so-cleverly designed to keep “wild men” like Peter Robinson and Todd Zywicki out of the hen house – or so it seems.) I have no idea how the results will go.
