I am obliged to Mr. Alan J. Favish at The American Thinker for confirming my deeply held suspicion that most universities are staffed and run by idiots but those situated in California are actually run by the brain-dead! He brings to our attention the fact that one of the colleges at the University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC) has decided to change its name to the Rachel Carson College.
Rachel Carson, of course, is the 'Great Green Goddess of all Greenies' everywhere and forever. In 1961, her book, Silent Spring ,was hugely influential and the global campaign that followed led to the cessation of the use of DDT as a means of controlling mosquitoes which carried malaria. The result was that zillions of 'ickle-lickle-mozzies' lived and, er, zillions of gross, ghastly humans died, especially those under 5 years of age!
Honestly, you have to ask, should we just burn all 'Greenies' at the stake in order to save Mankind?
