  1. Good on Georgetown, and good riddance to the rest. I can guess the backstory with Griffiths. He is one of the First Things gang who stuck around there long after Reno had gone into wild-eyed obsession with the gay agenda and decided to become the intellectual clearinghouse for Theoconservative Trumpery. Sounds like he was ready to leave Duke, and I’m sure the feeling is mutual for many of his colleagues. What a childish hissy fit. Lone campus conservative prof menaced by sensitivity training ceased being original after about 1998. Maybe Griffiths can join Anthony Esolen and others of their ilk some place sufficiently insensitive to protect their inner warriors. Sounds like they really need a drum circle, some readings from Iron John, and a good manly cry.
