  •  I was there off and on (6+ / 0-)

    Went to the meeting -- was it the Regents? -- who listened politely to the appeal of the parents and then said they thought it should be built anyway. Can't remember all the details of the meetings but, that last day, I walked from that meeting over to the Hill with Arthur Krause. Then we walked over the hill and down to Allison's spot before walking off campus for the last time. I was headed for law school that fall and, although I had planned to get arrested, Arthur Krause and Rev. John Adams convinced me not to do it, saying that I really didn't know how it might affect my future. So, instead, I walked off campus with the two of them and Arthur vowed that day never to return ... and I don't think he ever did. All the parents wanted was to preserve the site and the university couldn't even do that for them.

    We need not stride resolutely towards catastrophe, merely because those are the marching orders. -- Noam Chomsky
