Re: Fame lasts a minute; infamy lasts a lifetime

“Long-term residents of the Hanover plain will remember when Dartmouth Review staffers destroyed a shanty-town erected on the Green to push for divestment from Africa.”

Depending on your interpretation of whether “destroyed” or “erected” antecedes the dependent infinitive “to push” here, this sentence could imply that The Review was making common cause with the protesters. How you like them apples, Freepers? Now that our commitment to social justice is a matter of public record, we must continue to fight the good fight. Our predecessors prevailed in their battle against Apartheid in South Africa, but according Mr. Rubin ’95 the greater war for divestment from Africa at large continues. Our burden is heavy, but our cause is right.
