Waxing Nostalgic

The Times has a piece about protesting profs, as noted below. We have previously commented that the anti-war protestors need to decide whether they are attempting to change minds, or merely demonstrating their own virtue and high spirits.

More on this from one of the profs, recalling the good old days:

"We used to like to offend people," Martha Saxton, a professor of women's studies at Amherst, said as she discussed the faculty protest with students this week. "We loved being bad, in the sense that we were making a statement. Why is there no joy now?"

The joy is missing at the vomit-ins? Imagine.

UPDATE: The Man from Belgravia also noticed the doddering profs.
