So many e-mails, so many attachments
Chances are you’ve gotten an e-mail from someone on a campus somewhere today. That’s not necessarily good news. As Frances (“Baby”) Houseman’s father manfully told Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing, just before the movie and the summer ended and Baby went off to begin her freshman year at Mount Holyoke, “When I’m wrong, I say I’m wrong.” What I’m wrong about this time has to do with my own baby as she went off to college: my expectation (recorded in this space last August) that she’d no longer be a part of my daily life.

From the President
Greater than zero is what justice demands
When it comes to quotas, President Don M. Randel writes, we still have a long way to go before worrying that we have gone too far. The birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. this year coincided with President Bush’s declarations on affirmative action in higher education. What might King have thought about the president’s remarks, and what ought we to think about the matter? The president carefully criticized only the University of Michigan’s methods of achieving diversity and equally carefully left open the door to other methods without specifying what they might be. It remains a door through which we must stride purposefully.
