Illiberal Yale?

Ivy League sentences to ponder: “It is therefore remarkable that no fewer than 13 [Yale] administrators took scarce time to compose, circulate, and co-sign a letter advising adult students on how to dress for Halloween, a cause that misguided campus activists mistake for a social-justice priority.” Conor Friedersdorf, a staff writer at The Atlantic, reviews recent events at Yale in this excellent essay.

Addendum (Nov. 13, 2015): “The upshot of this all is that lower tier administrators will be sending fewer all-student emails in the future … I’m not sure that’s a bad thing.” (Via Tyler Cowen, master of the Internet.)
