Conservatives Argue Over Mary Ann Glendon:

Some interesting chatter over at National Review on Mary Ann Glendon’s decision to rebuff Notre Dame.

Danielle Crittenden starts here and elaborates here. Responses by Maggie Gallagher,
Kathryn Jean Lopez, and Ramesh Ponnuru.

I’ve given my two cents here but to summarize, I think there is a line to draw between giving someone a platform to speak as part of the academic enterprise and honoring someone with a honorary degree and giving that person a platform to speak at the university’s most important collective event of the year.


And here is a really interesting and thoughtful post by Glendon’s daughter.
