Sad Sign of the Times

What does it say about the current culture on our college campuses that the College of William and Mary -- second oldest institution of higher learning in the United States -- hosted a Sex Workers Art Show?

Tuition at the college is $8490 for those instate, and a whopping $25,048 out of state (not counting $6932 more for room and board). Wonder if the parents signing the tuition checks feel like their children are receiving an unparalleled academic opportunity by being able to attend a sex workers art show?

Somehow, it doesn't seem likely that's what they had in mind when they were signing the tuition checks.

It seems they wanted to show what they were really about. Doesn't make sense. Everyone knows what a whore is. Is this the old, "we're no different from anyone else" nonsense? Rubbish. And that president who believes it's not for the university to regulate such things? Fire his ass now.
