The highest-ranking U.S. delegation to visit the Gaza Strip in years toured bomb-damaged buildings Thursday and blamed the enclave's Hamas rulers for provoking Israel's wrath with cross-border rocket attacks.What? Kerry and Ellison? Saying how it really is and showing some backbone? Did I stumble into an alternate reality?
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry and two members of the House of Representatives, Brian Baird and Keith Ellison, shunned Hamas during tours one month after Israel ended its 22-day Gaza offensive.

"We were window dressing," said Hazel Edney, a reporter with the National Newspaper Publishers Association, also known as the Black Press of America. "We were nothing more than window dressing."
"This was like Reagan, when he'd put all the blacks up front," said another prominent but visibly peeved black-press reporter who asked to remain anonymous. "He oughta' be ashamed."My response:
. . . assist faculty, staff, administrators, and students in addressing instances of behavior, which may not be appropriate for the IUPUI campus environment. Examples of such instances include, but are not limited to: behavior that appears to be dangerous or threatening to oneself or others; bizarre or strange behavior such as acting "out of touch" with reality; angry, hostile, or abusive behavior; or other behavior that is inappropriate, worrisome, or disruptive. In some cases, there may be no violation of campus rules, as such, but the behavior may evoke alarm or concern among involved persons.The BCT has extended its mission to include staff and faculty behavior as well as that of students. And without consulting the Councils of those groups. I questioned Jason's boss, the Dean of Students Karen Whitney during a Q and A session at Staff Council, asking if they had "buy-in from the faculty" for extending the BCT's mission to address faculty behaviors. She told me that they hadn't because the BCT was a "risk management vehicle" and that ". . .so far no one has complained about it." (I've double-checked the recording of that session to make sure I've properly transcribed what was said.)
