For John, BLUF: Academics distorting education. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Over at the blog Legal Insurrection Professor William A. Jacobson talks about talking to Da Tech Guy (who is located just west of us, in Fitchburg) about the American Studies Association calling for an academic boycott of Israel. This is not a raging issue, but it is a small window into the world of academia and the small bore agendas therein. The ASA is pushing an anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement. Short sighted.
Engage, don't boycott.
