William & Mary is realizing the true cost of President Gene Nichol’s Wren Cross decision this week: a donor revoked a $12 million pledge. Ouch.
Nichol is still blind to his responsibility though: “Ultimately it only hurts our students.”
And he justifies it through integrity: “Diversity, including religious diversity, remains a core value of this institution,” he wrote. “The core values of the college cannot be for sale.”
The lesson: William & Mary will pay $12 million to banish the cross (except for Sundays), and $1800 to solicit revealing performances by sex workers. That is the price of diversity.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
