Smash the ROTC ‘Roadblock.’
This Inside Higher Ed article (H/T: Instapundit) on Columbia’s (and the rest of the Ivy League’s) contempt for the military does its readers a grave disservice: it adamantly refuses to even acknowledge that colleges that ban ROTC from campus are ineligible for federal funding.

The quote goes: The military not only discriminates on the basis of sexual preference, but on the basis of sex and race.
