...Virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed...

Gene Nichol made some really poor choices which he compounded with poor decisions, but he's taking his toys home to pout all because of the censorship. Sounds to me like Gene is confusing immature behavior with passionate activism. Either way it will suit him well as a teacher of the law.
Former UNC-Chapel Hill law dean Gene Nichol, a forceful liberal voice and an occasional lightning rod, resigned abruptly today as president of the College of William & Mary in Virginia.
In a letter to William & Mary supporters, Nichol said he was informed Sunday by college leaders that his contract would not be renewed in July. He then decided to step down immediately, and, in a parting shot, said he refused an offer of "substantial economic incentives" to remain quiet about the reasons for his departure.

Your looking flea bitten. Stop laying with dogs and sex workers.
My favorite is the morons who think this is to defend us from Canada. Go read about this, maybe contact Miss Marcey Kaptur about having her duck taping Finkbeiner's mouth. While Finkbeiner gets progressively more stupid, Marcy is a Progressive.
You know, Toodeledoo coulda been the prize possession of Michigan. Yes, I meant to say prize possession.
The various surveys resulted in a 50-year dispute over the Toledo Strip, which was only five miles wide at the Indiana border and eight miles wide at Lake Erie. Although it has been reported that no shots were fired, Ohio and Michigan militia units were sent to the Toledo Strip between 1835 and 1837. But luck was on Ohio's side. At the time, the Compromise of 1820 allowed the admission of one slave state for one free state. Michigan and Missouri were to be admitted as states, but only when Michigan surrendered the Toledo Strip to Ohio. The reason? Probably because a Presidential election was coming up. State of Ohio residents could vote, while Michigan Territory residents could not.
Clinton, speaking on WJLA Channel 7 in Washington and Politico.com, also promised there would be no new scandals involving her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
The senator was asked a question from a Politico.com reader in Santa Monica, Calif., who was seeking assurance that "no new business or personal scandal involving Bill Clinton" could erupt if she were in the White House and give fodder to Republicans.
"You know, I can assure this reader that that is not going to happen," she said. "You know, none of us can predict the future, no matter who we are and what we are running for, but I am very confident that that will not happen."
Okay, she promises no more eruptions, but she admits to being merely mortal by saying she can't predict more eruptions won't happen. The empress has an acne problem which seems to erupt at the most inopportune moments because she still dealing with a teenager at home.
