Arizona State tit controversy continues


For Powell and Copps, it was Janet Jackson. Who supplied the stray mammary that launched ASU president Michael Crow's Comstock Crusade [1], I know not.

The latest is that
the administration wants to establish an editorial policy for content in the newspaper.


It must be about time for filing for an injunction in Federal District Court, surely? (No sign of legal action so far, that I can see.)

Recap on the big picture: Brigham Young University is full up, and Crow wants to turn ASU into a Pleasantville College where Mormons can send their kiddies safe in the knowledge that they will be returned unsullied by the modern world - and, for the purpose, to snaffle muchos dólares from donors from outside the reality-based community.

Of course, citizens of Arizona might also be complaining about Crow and friends attempting to found a madrassa for the polygamous Taliban in an institution largely funded by taxpayers' money...
