Scenes from the liberal meltdown

The College Dean

Color your book

And sculpt a doll,

And when you’re done,

Cry-curl in a ball.

~Day Williams

 

This is just vicious stuff. But for pure pathos crossing into the absurd, we turn (as usual) to the college campus. Consider:

  • The University of Michigan offered its traumatized students coloring books and Play-Doh to calm them. (Are its students in college or kindergarten?)
  • The University of Kansas reminded its stressed-out kids that therapy dogs, a regular campus feature, were available.
  • Cornell University, an Ivy League school, held a campus-wide “cry-in,” with officials handing out tissues and hot chocolate.
  • Tufts University offered its devastated students arts and crafts sessions. (OK, not kindergarten — more like summer camp.)
  • At campuses from elite Yale to Connecticut to Iowa and beyond, professors canceled classes and/or exams — either because students asked or because instructors were too distraught to teach.
