PC is Good Stuff

PC is good stuff because it is an endless source of amusement.

On March 3 an Iranian student ran down nine people at UNC Chapel Hill with a rented jeep. He said that he did it to "spread the will of allah." See http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,186946,00.html

This gives UNC the distinction of being the first American university to be the target of a terrorist attack.

UNC is also the university where chancellor James Moeser thought in 2002 that he was being very clever by forcing entering students to read passages from the Koran.

It would be interesting to speculate whether Moeser appreciates the irony in all this, but given that he is an organist (yup, that's right, an organist -- PhD. in Musicology -- ideal qualifications for a chancellor) I rather doubt it.

It gets worse. On March 27 students a UNC held a CANDLELIGHT VIGIL (gag me with a spoon) to promote healing or some such nonsense. See http://rdu.news14.com/content/headlines/?ArID=82434&SecID=2 If Moeser had played "Pop Goes the Weasel" on an accordion it would have been the completest thing...
