Colleges must promise safety
It’s a complex issue, and I will comment on it no further. I will say, however, that college officials everywhere should do something about the students who, with good reason, appear threatening to faculty members and other students.
Ten years ago, one kooky college classmate of mine at Louisiana Tech told a professor that the Columbine shootings were necessary. Bullies made a sport of him in high school, he said, so he supported the shooters in Colorado getting even with their own tormenters execution style.
