    ITHACA NY--A small group of students and professors gathered this week in A.D. White House at Cornell University to discuss the maelstrom that has erupted over Ward Churchill, a professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado who has been subject to academic review and public scrutiny for his comments on the victims of the World Trade Center attacks. The statements, posted to a blog a day after the attacks and expanded into an essay in 2003, refer to the office workers in the Twin Towers as “little Eichmanns” and called into question the presumption of their innocence. “True...

    The only obvious difference between Ithaca and a bucket of scum is that a bucket of scum does not siphon off millions of dollars in taxpayers’ money every year. Finding this entire area completely devoid of virtue, your writer feels the need to highlight the reasons for his glee at soon gettin’ outta Dodge: Ithaca, hidden in its secluded (and deluded) little corner of New York, is a world of idealism run amuck. This is a town in which a million dollars were spent to make up “Ithaca Hours”—a communist’s dream—a currency in which one hour of one’s labour (no...

    In some circles the mere utterance of the terms “France” or “Chirac” are enough to elicit a contemptuous chuckle. A couple of weeks ago I went to a conference in Washington, D.C. put on by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a pro-Israel lobby that supports a strong U.S.-Israel relationship. The main event of the conference was a huge dinner attended by all types of dignitaries. While listening to AIPAC officials announce all the big shots at the event—over half of the Senate and the House attended—they mentioned the French Ambassador to the United States. Of the several hundred...

    The college profs just keep on with their dominance of Nutwatch. This time, it's Ithaca College of New York. (I'm glad my kids are out of college, and do not have to face this.) The article is from Ithacaonline.com and was written by Katie Maslanka. With liberals diversity is 'the king', in everything except ideology. Note how the liberal profs defend the huge disparity. A recent analysis of political diversity at Ithaca College revealed that out of 125 professors in 14 departments, an overwhelming majority — 93.6 percent — are registered as Democrats or Greens. Only 6.4 percent are registered...

    I opened the newspaper Monday morning to be greeted by a headline announcing that "Potholes a problem but not a crisis." This was certainly welcome news. Because driving around Ithaca during the past few weeks, I had been forming the opinion that our local potholes had already worked their way through the "annoyance," "nuisance," "problem," "pestilence" and "plague" categories, and were certain to be elevated to "crisis" status at any moment. My peace of mind, unfortunately, was short-lived. I began reading the story, only to learn that the problematic potholes in question adorned our county roads, not our city streets....

    Ithaca Journal ^ | 4/17/03 | By MICHAEL SERINO
    Last week I wrote a column that set out to have some fun with the antiwar movement. I had been increasingly irritated by the low level of discourse that characterized much of the protest rhetoric: Criticism of the president's foreign policy agenda degenerated very quickly into slurs and name-calling. And while such critics consistently characterized the position of the administration as motivated almost entirely by a combination of cynicism, religious fanaticism, diplomatic failure, fascism, racism and craving for personal gain, they of course saw their own positions as motivated by pure principle and the power of moral righteousness alone. But...

    With the focus of the diversity debate centered around racial issues, some members of the Cornell community have voiced their dismay over the lack of attention to promoting a campus open for ideas. In a Mar. 28 Sun column, Joe Sabia grad claimed that most professors have a "liberal bias" and this bias disables the University from promoting diversity of ideas. Sabia wrote about a personal experience, in which he claimed that three staff members were using their positions to institute their antiwar sentiments in an open, nonpartisan forum about the war on Iraq and to criticize his prowar views....
