Thank you Old Lion for suggesting we read Professor Greenblat's article in the New Yorker titled Shakespeare's Cure for Xenophobia. It was enlightening to read about his first-hand the prejudices he had to overcome at Yale in the 1960's. Like most of us, I can grumble and make fun of political correctness in the Ivy League. Yet, reading articles like this reminds me why activists can feel so passionate about social change. Fortunately, the Ivy League has evolved for the better.

Enjoy the read

For posting. I would have done so myself but it is beyond my technological level of competence. I wish that there would be more Stephen Greenblatts and fewer PC professors. The PC agenda is driven by the faculty. On a decidedly non-PC front I and other Columbians of my generation are mourning the passing of the great Ted de Bary, scholar, gentleman, teacher and fervent Columbia football fan. I remember seeing him at a game as recently as last Fall, all of 96 years old, as he was being helped to the Maniatty Lounge. And when the Greenblatts and other great scholars leave the scene, I shudder to think what will fill the void.
