Why George Will Isn't Teaching French Lit at Amherst

New York Times columnist John Tierney is deeply concerned about the fact that academia slants left, a problem he attributes to "cronyism." (As you know, I can no longer offer you a free link to the Times op-ed pages, but in this case I assure you it's no great loss.)

You may be surprised to learn that for once I agree with Tierney. It's deplorable that liberals dominate the professorial ranks, and I would gladly support a program to get more conservatives hired to teach at our top universities. Provided, of course, that it's coupled with a program to require that more liberals be hired as corporate CEOs, police chiefs, four-star generals, and radio talk show hosts.

Now can we get back to discussing some actual problem faced by our society?
