    Another blatant example of a liberal college professor showing affection for a tyrant:

    By Marc Seelinger, YAF Conference graduate and Intern at the Reagan Ranch Center


    It’s not often that I have the opportunity to comment on the goings-on of NC State, UNC’s friendly, down-the-road school of engineering and pig farming. But it seems that the Mao Infatuation Virus has spread to Raleigh. In an email sent to students in NC State’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS), Dean of the College Jeffrey P. Braden writes:

    “Finally, a bit of advice. The friends you make in college will be your friends for life, and will influence what you do and how you think throughout your life time-so choose wisely. Some of the best friends I made as a student were Plato, Henry David Thoreau, Mao Tse-tung, Margaret Mead, and Maya Angelou. My colleagues are eager to make similar introductions for you!”

    Let’s just briefly recount some of the Great Mao Zedong’s accomplishments:

    1. Caused approximately 40 million people to starve to death during the Great Leap Forward

    2. Instigated a reign of terror and chaos in the course of the Cultural Revolution

    3. Killed millions more during his purges of the 1950′s

    • WyPosR Spot on with this write-up, I really suppose this web site wants far more consideration. I'll most likely be again to learn way more, thanks for that info.

    • I believe the real curse' is not SI as much that, like Klein, the Chiefs Cassel wears #7 known in the paalrnce as the close proximity kiss of death'. For that matter, potential Chiefs #1 draft pick Matt Barkley also wears #7 AND is from USC Holy Coincidence, Batman!Of course John Elway also wore #7 but even he went only 2-4 Superbowls. The usual suspects #7 non-Superbowl winning names include the likes Boomer Esiason & Craig Morton. Alas, for every Ben Roethlisberger a Bert Jones & Dan Pastorini, every Joe Theismann a Ron Jaworski, Michael Vick and Mike Nott.Nott? He was a Chiefs QB, signed as a free agent 1975 who got into one game in his KC career & lost 45-0 despite missing on only 6 passes in 10 attempts go figure. A great career his just wasn't in the numbers.As for K-State, the feeling engendered yesterday's loss is similar the one, any, Marty Schottenheimer post season Chiefs all that success, all that hype, all for naught; so it goes.

    • OK. It's possible that I've <a href="">cheeatd</a> along the way. I've pretty much abandoned this month's theme (permissible, I think), and I've also put up some real crap along the way (a NaBloPoMo necessity.) But I've also written pretty good posts about Helen Thomas, the Phish show we saw at Blossom and, with the help of my friend Kelly, some good stuff about college football.
