Just avoiding trademark tresspassing, as the mom bought and now owns months ago.

Whenever I hear “George Mason University” I think of Walter Williams.I’d love to hear what,if anything,he’d have to say about the Zimmerman case...even if his opinion differed substantially from mine.

Maybe they intentionally misspelled it to avoid paying royalties on the name. After all, didn't Trayvon’s baby-momma copy-write the name?

Wouldn’t it be great if Williams would teach the class?
Even as a substitute for ONE DAY.

I wonder if they'll eventually offer a bachelor's degree in Trayvon Martin Studies (should be a BS degree).

I think, in quoting Jabba the Witness, that the more accurate quote would be

“that’s real retarted, sir”

That’s OK.

Cover ALL them bases!

It just shows how worthless some college credits can be. I think it’s always been that way. Personally, I have three college credits in tennis I earned as an undergrad in 1968, but I don’t think I ever learned the rules of the game, much less how to play it. Even the scoring remains a mystery to me: love love, what does that mean?

Perfectly encapsulates the state of “higher education” in the country right now. Granting educational credit in a course where the organizer and presumably, the instructor have no clue as to what they’re teaching.

Is George Manson, he of the University, related to Charles Manson?
