Poetry Professor Causes Campus Shutdown

Actually, I should title the article "Paranoid Euro-Centric Student Causes Campus Shutdown", but the former title is more comical.

Unfortunately, it's really not all that funny.  In the name of security, we are training ourselves to look at our neighbors with suspicion, if not outright hatred.  Anyone who is different from us is automatically suspect ... and those of Middle Eastern descent appear to be the target du jour.

We have met the enemy ... and he is us.
