The Halloween Bomber

Yes, I am aware of the story about the University of Pennsylvania student who showed up at a Halloween party dressed as a suicide bomber, and had his picture taken with the president of the university. Yes, itís ridiculous, yes, everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves, and yes, that school is an absolute cesspool of P.C. fascism, even by normal academic standards. But letís not get carried away here. There are much more important things going on these days that are much more worthy of our outrage.

Now, if an actual suicide bomber had showed up in West Philly, then Iíd feel differently. At that point, people at Penn would likely argue that the presence of Jewish students created a hostile environment for the bomber...
