If seismic activity is measured at Montpelier, Virginia in February 2012, we’ll know that Bill of Rights author James Madison is rightly spinning in his grave.
The Daily Princetonian announced:
… Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson GS ’86 will be awarded the… James Madison Medal… during Alumni Day on Feb. 25, 2012.
… the Madison Medal recognizes a graduate school alumnus or alumna who “has had a distinguished career, advanced the cause of graduate education or achieved a record of outstanding public service”…
Since when is harming the economy and killing jobs “outstanding public service”?
Past winners include: Frederick Seitz, George Will and (oddly enough) Cornel West.
