From the Yale Daily News:

The U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights announced it would open an investigation of the University “for its failure to eliminate a hostile sexual environment on campus, in violation of Title IX,” according to a press release written by the complainants received Thursday afternoon by the News.

If I really wanted to muck up my website, I would quote the pornographically lewd chants alleged to have been publicly performed by Yale men -- I use the term loosely -- on the Old Campus, and which appear to have fueled this scandal. Suffice it to say, it is not a "violation of Title IX" that is at issue here but the sloping, sliding degradation of a decadent culture. 

In a culture that revels in shamelessness,  that glories in the base, that celebrates the crude, of course, the "best and brightest"(read: privileged) become brutes.

Needless to say, government censors and "sensitivity"-trainers are not the answer. They have already done their best to condition us to become blanks devoid of judgment, taste, sensibility, restraint, honest-to-goodness sensitivity, decency (shocking word, I know), so that, in the prophetic and endlessly expressive words of one of Yale's most brilliant alumni, Anything Goes.

It went.
