Dave Pruett

Originally, one attended a "university" to study the universe and to seek one's niche in it.

Nikolas Kozloff

To be sure, leftists don't want to encourage the political right which has its own opportunistic and underhanded agenda in the Middle East. Yet, by sweeping controversy under the rug and not engaging in key debates, the left opens itself up for attack.
