Wash U Students and Faculty Protest Schlafly Honor

I want to preface this with a little disclosure and a little ditty. Disclosure: I'm a WU alum.

Ditty: When I first told this to my mother, she thought I was describing something that happened thirty years ago. Not the silent protest, but the fact that Washington University in St. Louis was giving Schlafly an honorary degree. It took her a second (complete with sputtering exasperation) to realize I was talking about LAST WEEK.

On another note, I really love how mature Schlafly is in regards to the protest. "A bunch of losers"???? Oh yeah? Good job, again, Wash U on giving this women an honorary degree. Jeez.

(Huge courtesy to C. for passing me the link to the video!)
