Put Down That Bacon

Fenster writes:

My first post here and I am thinking about how and whether the site will cohere or whether it is likely to be pretty shaggy and wide-ranging.  I favor the latter.

Still and all, it might be nice from time to time if threads were to converge and my first posting is in that spirit.  I know that, true to his handle, Paleo Retiree is into paleo eating.  And I am, due to my professional background, into higher education.  Is is possible to come up with a post that touches on both.  Yes!

The president of Paul Quinn College has just announced that henceforth the campus will be pork free.  This is not in the name of something as grounded as religious doctrine–while not much of a believer myself I am a believer in the ability of private colleges to link their practices to their missions, and if pork is a problem (as at Brandeis, say) fine and dandy.  But here the situation is much more heavy handed in a way that is hard to relate to the college mission.

Beyond that there are all the paleo issues to consider.  Bacon has been banned but carbs remain on the menu.  Go figure.

Gainfully employed for thirty years, including as one of those high paid college administrators faculty complain about. Earned Ph.D. late in life and converted to the faculty side. Those damn administrators are ruining everything.
