Down with the nu-bureaucrats!

Thanks to Ben for bringing me the glad tidings that my alma mater is now being occupied, in the wake of staff revolt. When I was there a dozen years ago, a rather less coherent Mobilization got mired in identity politics (though I still have fond memories of the Habermasians at the Graduate Faculty putting up dazibaos calling for "ideal communicative situations" as their undergraduate students publically denounced them for sexism and called for a mandatory Queer Studies course. Oh postmodernism, how quaint you seem today...). I suppose "the Crisis" has a way of focussing the political imagination.
