This Day in Blabbery

Review associate Eddie Bertran weighs in on the controversy in today’s D. I’ve been on the fence about this whole issue thus far, but Eddie’s lucid and confident apologia of Dartmouth as is strikes a chord.

A choice chunk:

“Sure, we don’t have an office of overseas apparel like our good friends in Cambridge or New Haven. The last movie about Dartmouth may have very well been that black and white one about Winter Carnival, not one with Reese Witherspoon or Joshua Jackson. But do you really want that? Do we even need that? Or would you rather have Dartmouth be the school that has its student’s (sic) speak for the institution without any need for self-promotion, by account of their own merits and achievements.”
