Don Z. Block

The University of Pennsylvania does not know what to do about the fact that the liar went to Wharton. The official mag of the school, The Penn Gazette, does not know what to do with him. His name appears only in letters to the editor, some of them supporting him, the support usually consisting of the same types of ad hominem arguments that their hero relies on. We have been witnessing a triumph of barbarism and monumental stupidity. At least 40% of the teachers in my school voted for him, a low number, to be sure, but one that I find very disturbing. (I base that figure on the response to an email I circulated that included an article by Frank Figliuzzi, written two days before the El paso massacre, predicting that just such an event would occur.)
