More on Columbia University

As suspected, there's more to the story about the panel that cleared Columbia University of anti-semitism. First, the University decided not to show the report to the students...but they eventually backed down.
According to one student, senior Ariel Beery, one of the campus's most outspoken critics of the professors, a Columbia spokeswoman told him that students were not being shown the report yesterday "for your own good."

Late last night, however, after some of the students who made the charges demanded to see the report, the administration relented and showed it to them.

"The report only focuses on three incidents, and we brought to them a lot more incidents that were not reported and they made no mention of them," Mr. Beery said.
The whole thing is just not kosher; but the larger issue of the curriculum has yet to be addressed.
