Monday Info, Funnies...and Prof Bainbridge

Here is a great deconstruction by Prof Bainbridge of the argument that there are legitimate explanations, other than bias, to explain the gross disproportion of liberal versus conservative academics at today's college campuses. If you haven't heard, the French wanted to sue Carl's Jr. (yeah, that one) for "discrimination" over a commercial they ran in late '03 because of the following language: "* At the Waterloo, the French surrendered.* In the Franco-Prussian War, the French surrendered.* In World War 2, well, the French surrendered.* Don't be a big chicken. Eat one" I don't remember the ad...maybe it was regional, but it sure is funny as good satire should be. The effort never left the launch pad. This is old news, from the standpoint that it happened a while ago as opposed to actually having been reported about in any length, but if there was any doubt that bin Laden desperately wanted President Bush to lose this election, please read this. Finally, Michael Moore equates Republicans to abusive oppressors and Democrats...to..battered...women? Here's a snippet: "You stand tall, with 57 million people at your side and behind you, and you look right into the eyes of the abuser and you tell him to go to hell. Then you walk out the door, taking the kids and gays and minorities with you, and you start a new life. The new life is hard. But it's better than the abuse. " My apologies for having denigrated this stuff as unhinged ravings....my bad.
