A Sad Day

It is bad enough when we have to let that whack job from Iran into the country so he can ramble on at the UN, but it is disguisting that Columbia University is going to give that nut job a forum.
A pox on their house!

Maybe we can just move the UN to Switzerland, return that land to NY for condos, and never have to let tyrants and madmen on our soil again.

You can't spell AhMADinejad without MAD!!

Remember when "Columbia" had a different meaning?

O, Columbia! the gem of the ocean,
The home of the brave and the free,
The shrine of each patriot's devotion,
A world offers homage to thee.
Thy mandates make heroes assemble
When Liberty's form stands in view;
Thy banners make tyranny tremble
When borne by the Red, White and Blue.

UPDATE: I read the reports of the event and frankly am just as troubled by the treatment of "Rock My Dinner Shed" as I am by Columbia's decision to invite him. If you are going to invite a head of state to your campus, he is your guest and no matter how despicable he might be, he is entitled to be treated with courtesy and respect. The opening remarks and the behavior of the University's representatives were anything but civil. In my opinion, the guy deserves all he gets, but there is a time and a place. Columbia is clueless!

Stewdog, I confess to a similar discomfort. Don't invite the guy, but if you do, then be courteous. One can pose hard questions without the personal attacks, but I suppose that President Lee C. Bollinger felt that he had something to prove.
