Well, if Ms. Harris is going to comment on the UCLA student tasering, how can I not? Sadly, I have nothing original to say. The best comment was someone expressing concern about precedents with “What if they used a taser on every 20 year old who was being obnoxious?”. One of the voices in my head immediately replied “What a wonderful world that would be!”. Sadly, this is unlikely to set such an excellent precedent.

Alas, we do not live in such a paradise. But a girl can dream!

a professoriate armed with heavy duty cattle prods would be a great thing for the typical american university.

I think using them on the professoriate would be more helpful.

i left out the part where the current crop of academics is sent to re-education camps, and then cattle prods are handed out to the replacement scholars.
