Terror In The Iranian Ivory Tower

First I read the headline and thought, maybe Ahmedinejad isn't entirely bad, after all!

Then I read the article and realized that, of course, his idea of "liberal" and mine are as opposite as night and day.

But we can work with him on this issue.

Let's trade our liberal professors for theirs. That way, both sides will get to work under the system of civil government and academic governance they prefer.

We get their learned and capable professors of science, medicine, engineering and liberal arts, and they get our useless and incompetent professors of sociology, women's studies, GLBTQ culture and postmodern literary theory.

How about it, folks? This is a win-win proposition!

Sounds like a fair trade! Our halls of academe are filled with professors who are as anti-western as the Iranian government - surely they would love the opportunity to support the Nazis.
