"A Terrible Beauty is Born"

Via Powerline, a not-to-be-missed piece. As a young alumna who receives almost all of her Dartmouth correspondence electronically, I was not aware that the hard copy ballots for Alumni Trustee -- originally supposed to have been sent out on March 7th -- were not sent in the mail until some time last week. The election concludes on April 22nd.

At this rate, we would propose that an independent group of observers verify the results of this election. The Dartmouth College establishment does not appear to be above anything at this point. It's actually scary. What do they have to lose by having a Trustee nominated and elected by the true will of the alumni body?

Apparently, a lot. Stay tuned -- and vote.
