In News this issue, we ask the question why did Newt Gingrich come to Fordham. Besides being homophobic, racist, and sexist…we just don’t know what this guy brings to the table! But Fordham threw 40k for him anyway.
Beyond this, we explore why a European scholar has been repeatedly denied a Visa to teach at Notre Dame and we break down the Somali pirate situation. Plus! Gay marriage in Vermont, a paper correspondent at a tea party protest(!), clinical memory erasure, eating rare sharks, “Potato Day,” and Obama dealin’ with Iran.
