Frank Capra Directs Chinatown

Robert J. Avrech is excited about Hillsdale College:
First impressions: Hillsdale is sort of like a set for a Frank Capra film.

[...]

Refusing all Federal dollars, Hillsdale is one of the few Conservative American colleges—Claremont and Grove City are two others that spring to mind—thus the school is truly independent, not shackled by government grants or political headwinds.
Me, I remember Hillsdale College for the incest-suicide story.

ALSO:

A bitchy post from an ex-Hillsdaler.

Scholar and gentleman Mark Steyn has taught at Hillsdale.

Why, oh why is that clown is polluting my State?

Also, I've lived here my whole life and have never heard the term "running the traps". Too.

Roche had a reputation for possessing a free-range phallus rumored to have visited students and college employees.

A statue of Margaret the Terrible would be fun to put costumes on.

Mark Steyn’s column appears in the New York Sun, the Washington Times, Philadelphia’s Evening Bulletin, and the Orange County Register. In addition, he writes for The New Criterion, MacLean’s in Canada, the Jerusalem Post, The Australian, and Hawke’s Bay Today in New Zealand.

This is the first that I have heard of that Journal of Note. Perhaps Steyn's column is after the 'Sheep and Cattle Prices' page, or near the 'Lost and Found' column. I must investigate

Nothing wrong with the Roche Sisters. I have one of their records somewhere.
