Ahmadinejad at Columbia | 09/23/07
There's been a flurry of media activity over Ahmadinejad's speaking at Columbia University. The school has taken a lot of heat over having someone who denied the existence of the holocaust (amongst a long list of other unsavory ideas) and Columbia has replied that if Hitler were available they'd have him too. The press conveniently leaves out the second half of the sentence: We'd invite Hitler to speak if he were prepared to go up against the Columbia University students and faculty. I think Columbia is doing a great thing--I don't think most Americans know how terrible a person Ahmadinejad is and having him get absolutely torn apart by some of America's best and brightest (like Meg) would certainly churn up some good quotes of him looking foolish and bring some larger public awareness to Iran and their lunatic despot.
In lighter news, my adopted team, the Packers, are 3-0 while my former team, led by UF Superstar (hah!) Rex Grossman took it on the chin from the Cowboys. The Green Bay game wasn't on and I watched about ten minutes of the Bears game and with the exception of one drive the Bears looked really bad in every way. I look forward to rooting for them again once they get rid of Grossman...my fear though is that replace him with new-draftee Chris Leak. Come on, put Orton back in there and get me back as a fan!
