A Sign of “Rank Ingratitude”:

An op-ed article in the Weekly Standard takes offense at the duplicity of law schools that appear to comply with the Solomon Amendment to save their federal funding by allowing military recruiters on campus then actively shunning them. Writer Scott Johnson, says the lawsuits filed by Harvard and others had legal merits that “rival those of obesity lawsuits brought by overweight consumers against fast food outlets.” (DR, 09/29/05) Johnson writes that while “decent military officers” suffer “the rudeness of their purported betters at Yale Law School and elsewhere in silence,” the US military “are actively defending these schools from mortal peril.” He goes on: “The rank ingratitude of those who should know better is a disgrace.”
