It seems as if the national dialogue about when it is inappropriate to strut your racism will have to wait until the other dialogue is heard about the best ways to turn our universities into armed, fortified outposts so that we may preserve the inalienable rights of any nut job in America to buy and use his weapon of choice.
The Blackwater mercenaries, freshly back from Iraq, are already making the cable news show rounds giving advice on how to militarize our campuses. Now here is a dialogue where some money can be made.
A clip from a random piece I selected from the L. A. Times:
"If I had my way as security director or police chief, I'd have fences with one point of entrance or one point of exit; you wouldn't get in without an ID or badge, and everyone would wear name tags," said Mullendore, who was police chief at Pasadena City College for 22 years. "[But] somewhere in between you need to reach a balance; it's not practical to make a college like a prison, but in the end you need to have some controls."I think we know who is going to win this competition. It ain't Aristotle.
The trick, experts say, is balancing competing needs.
