The re-naming craze on campuses caught the eye of professor and commentator Walter Williams in a pair of articles, College Campus Lunacy and its sequel Campus Lunacy, Part II. Having noted some few examples of campus officials pulling back a bit from the left, he observes “Nothing opens the closed minds of administrators better than the sounds of pocketbooks snapping shut.”
This is not something we see at College Park, where left-tilted policy and practices are rewarded with funding. Granted, it is mostly paid for with the inexhaustible supply of free tax money that officials send from Annapolis, but it is reward for right-thinking (well, left-thinking) practices nonetheless. Any who might want different outcomes should look to changing the representation Annapolis first.
