Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Wren Cross yet again

FT’s "on the Square" has a nicely nuanced reflection on the impossibility of being all things to all people, which is allegedly W&M President Gene Nichol’s aim. Author Meredith Henne notes, among other things, that reverence and inclusivity are often in tension with one another.

Update: A big donor has rescinded a pledge over this controversy, but the President says, "The core values of the college cannot be for sale." Apparently those who disagree with President Nichol are at odds with the core values of William & Mary.

I wonder if Nichol even knows what "core values" he’s trying to support. Maybe he should spend more time cultivating virtue among the student body rather than removing the Cross while also allowing what essentially amounted to a huge sex show on campus.
