Feds Investigate Newcombe Institute for Discrimination

Two observations: It's a women's college for frick sake. Whatever whiny snowflake complained deserves to be publicly shamed.

If they had left Newcomb alone this would never have happened. Unintended consequences he who shall not be named?

A. That's why we had Loyola....
B. Mississippi State was something like 90/10 (in the bad direction) in the mid-'90's, so it could have been much worse....
