Crooked Timber Petition

19 December 2012, 1942 EST

As I sorta implied below, you don’t need to agree with Erik’s political views or his manner of expressing them to recognize that the President of the University of Rhode Island’s statement is all kinds of appalling. The good folks at Crooked Timber have put together a petition to that effect. Go sign, if you’d be so kind.

Meanwhile, Glen Reynolds explains the underlying dynamic of this kind of attack. Except he’s one of the enablers of the cyber-assault on Loomis. As Paul Campos notes, irony is dead.
