NY Times | An ad hoc faculty committee charged with investigating complaints that pro-Israel Jewish students were harassed by pro-Palestine professors at Columbia University, said it had found one instance in which a professor "exceeded commonly accepted bounds" of behavior when he became angry at a student who he believed was defending Israel's conduct toward Palestine.

This huge national power struggle over Terri Schiavo's fate has, in fact, elevated the visibility of what's going on in America.more... 25 Comments
