"Reality has a well known liberal bias" - Stephan Colbert

O Lord Lead me from the unreal to the real.
Lead me from the darkness to light.
Lead me from death to immortality.
May there be peace, peace, and perfect peace.

I'm a bit confused about all the ramifications and consequences of this, but my heart & gut says it will limit women students from searching for and reaching their full potential. I don't blame them for being angry. Perhaps they should transfer to a different college?

"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night.

It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.

It is the little shadow which runs across the grass

and loses itself in the sunset.
