After "successful" surgery, Senator Kennedy's prognosis

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

Two weeks ago, long-serving Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy was diagnosed with a glioma, a rare cancerous brain tumor. Yesterday, he underwent extensive brain surgery and now the senator faces radiation treatments and chemotherapy. The Takeaway talks with Dr. Bernadine Healy, former director of the National Institutes of Health, to get a glimpse of what lies ahead for the senator's health. Dr. Healy should know — she was diagnosed with a glioma almost 10 years ago.

You seemed puzzled today about the confidentiality aspect of campus "adjudications" of sexual misconduct. If the woman involved wants to go public, she is free to avail herself of the very public criminal process. There are often very good personal reasons why a woman would choose the confidential complaint process, from a real understanding of the personal impact of going public to the fact that many situations that invoke complaints do not fit neatly into the black-and-while world of criminal prosecution. By implicitly attacking the confidential nature of campus complaint processes, you are suggesting that young woman should be deprived of the privacy option.
Be careful what you ask for.

Interesting interview you just did on divorce, families etc. in this economy. You forgot to add that the sun came up every morning during the great depression so it will probably come up every morning during this down time. Same for the going down part.

Does this guy really think his oped is newsworthy?
