Goring Oxen.

He's retired, so he can say things out loud now. Tenure? Worth rethinking. College ratings? Overrated. 21 years old to drink? Disastrous.

Michael --
I almost linked to this on Rebunk last week, because I really liked it and thought it was thought provoking. I am glad that you did.

Andrew --
Sure, but let's be fair -- college presidents do have all sorts of competing things to deal with, and while he is right about the drinking age being 21, a college president is not likely to be able to have all that much impact. I don't think the guy deserves to be impugned for making these arguments after he left office.

Wouldn't a strong leader -- a strong university president -- push for those changes while he was in office?
