The political issue du jour here at ND is the situation in the Middle East. The opening salvos were this op-ed and this letter in the Observer (the mainstream student paper). They garner a more-or-less expected response: spectacular racism. The author of the first letter rightly calls BS, and the racist retorts with -- to no-one's surprise -- an even more spectacular display of racism.

I threw my hat into this ring today, with this letter, calling the racist out (though more for being an idiot than being a racist).

It'll be interesting to see whether my students mention this in class on Friday.
