UWO the Berkeley of the Midwest!

I noticed this blog today. It is written by Jared Longsine, an Oshkosher, who denounces UWO as the Berkeley of the Midwest.

Apparently, he has never been to Berkeley, because most of us would love it if UWO had that reputation. It is one of the top universities in the country, with great academics from humanities to physics.

I know--he claims that all this doesn't matter, because there aren't enough fundamentalists on campus--but Oshkosh would be better off if our university had the resources and national stature that Berkeley has!

First, thanks for the story on my blog. Second, I don't denounce UWO as being Berkeley Midwest University. I am just pointing out that it is a potent haven of liberalism in Oshkosh. (As Berkeley is ultra-liberal) I actually think UWO has many great programs. I also think it'd be great to have a ton of Christian, Bible believing fundies at UWO.:)

Well, Jared sure has a couple of things correct as he says (about himself):

"I'm sick and can't think of anything smart to really say"

I have deleted a comment left by some jerk who decided that the way to display his dislike of Mr. Longsine's opinions was to threaten him with identity theft.

It is pretty disgusting to think that some one thinks that is apropriate behavior . . .

I use to know Jared personally years ago. I now hate him even more. He needs to keep his opinions to himself, and stay out of other peoples bedrooms. And to get a life. Why don't you try to date someone at the bank you work at and worry about what's never going to happen in your bedroom?
