Ann Coulter today reminds me of an incident at UIowa (recently the subject of some articles about lack of diversity in hiring) when I was in high school. Black dental students received violent threats. Uproar ensued, until they discovered the perp was...wait for it...a black dental student. My recollection is that she had a legitimate mental illness and hadn't been taking her medication; not exactly the anti-racism warrior the other exemplars are made out to be.

I was going to blog about the latest UIowa flap, but the only way to fix the place is to burn it down and start over.
