#1 So why not fire the whole guilty clique ?

#2 Fire everybody. Sell the building. Borrow from JPMorgan Chase. You should have thought of that before you encouraged socialist vendetta as an extra-curricular activity.

#5 ...Interesting situation - Oberlin actually has an $887M USD endowment, and even a worst case verdict would barely scratch that. The problem is that endowments tend to be reserved for specific purposes by the endowers. I don't think there's any legal barriers to them using endowment money to pay the damages, but first, they need to get permission to use said money from the people who donated it. Second, it sets a really, really bad precedent as far as using the money for 'emergencies'.

#7 It may have about three quarters of a billion dollars in its endowment, but the income from that endowment is committed to spending programs already. And with its reputation of a P.C. hellhole spreading, applications and enrollment have plummeted, and cutbacks are already underway.

#8 Bad things happen when educators forget that students are vermin.

The "educators" are vermin, trying to pass that along to their pliable mush brain "students." It's all a self-contained, self-absorbed cult. We will be hearing about how this decision is "chilling" to free speech from the same people who work overtime to chill free speech to absolute zero when they don't like what's being said.

Loren Visser lays it out in the first 50 seconds of this clip from Blood Simple.

#10 The students start out innocent when the go into kindergarten. It's the educational system that turns them into vermin.
