The Weekly Roundup: Release the Chalkin'!
- The headlines we were tempted to run, and the commentary we couldn’t.

Why the insistence on a confession? Well, it would represent the first and only evidence that the school was at all justified in punishing Dr. McAdams for his speech.
See what people are talking about when it comes to illegal immigrants taking American jobs?
He didn’t even vote against the group! They actually want to impeach him for, well, technically, nothing.

At least there’s no chance he’ll be replaced by Steve Jobs.
It’s actually a cost-saving measure, to spare the university the expense of providing the counseling that most students would require if a Trump supporter were to set foot on their campus.
Sure, dude. A member of the press recording a public event is proto-totalitarian, but a professor (of communications, for crying out loud) calling for “muscle” to evict that journalist is not.
That sound you hear? Hundreds of grad students tearing up their applications to teach at Stanford.
Oh, come on now. “Flesh”-colored bandaids don’t match anyone’s skin color.

It could have been worse. At least he wasn’t eating Chinese food or drinking tequila when she saw him.
“Do you know what dreadlocks mean?” Sure, we do: that you haven’t washed your hair in at least several months.
It’s good to see that they’re spending their time addressing the truly serious issues facing mankind.

Proper whining techniques, you see, will actually serve them invaluably after graduation.
Clearly, they don’t put much stock in the cliché that if one doesn’t have something nice to say, one ought not to say anything at all.
Quickly, Robin! To the Bias-Mobile!
As usual, liberals simply cannot fathom how anybody could disagree with them except out of ignorance or prejudice. Of course, that’s hardly the only thing they can’t fathom.
Ironically, they would have been more disruptive had they just stayed in their seats, but hundreds of conservative students are certainly grateful that their liberal peers don’t have that much sense.
But the advice the school really needs is on how to mollify irate legislators threatening budget cuts in response to such tasteless obscenity.
What, were Bill Clinton’s dalliances unavailable?
They claim Sessions does not embody the university’s values. Apparently, neither does the committee that voted unanimously to invite him to give the Commencement address.
If UNM’s seal is racist for excluding Native Americans, then the Native American artist who designed it must have been suffering from a serious case of self-loathing.
To clarify: if a seal includes a Native American, it’s racist. If it excludes Native Americans, it’s racist.
It’s Schrodinger's seal: somehow racist and not racist at the same time.

Which would be a good idea if it meant training students to handle the excessive cultural sensitivity they will surely experience throughout their college careers.
