- a California case of a wrongfully convicted man, but which also illustrated that the conviction of the innocent doesn't necessarily suggest prosecutorial misconduct;
- the Gerst Program at Duke, which provides an oasis of liberal arts learning amidst the race/class/gender dominated sea in Duke's humanities and social sciences departments;
- a letter from two Duke graduates, noting the striking contrast between the response of the administration and faculty "activists" to the Lombard and lacrosse cases;
- a low-work proposal from Group of 88 stalwart Cathy Davidson, who will allow students to grade themselves, even as she admits she doesn't much like grading;
- a reminder of the contempt through which Davidson views those with whom she politically disagrees.
I'm awaiting a couple of responses to a long post that will appear tomorrow.
Is Davidson a Communist?
The turmoil at the Chronicle over the new sexual assault guidelines is astounding.
No, Anonymous at 4:31, I'm betting that the Professor's next post deals with Duke Women's Center and Ada Gregory. Is Gregory a Calumnist? You bet! I'm glad that whoever the Professor writes about, at least he gives them a chance to respond.
But there sure was news yesterday when Pressler won his appeal to sue Duke and Burness for post-settlement slander.
