No Ramadan at Notre Dame
Although I'm sure many more people care about the football coaching change at Notre Dame, my eye was caught by this story that Tariq Ramadan, a Swiss Muslim scholar and professor, has decided to resign from his teaching position at Notre Dame. Of course, he was never able to take this position in the first place; he was denied entrance to the United States by the State Department, who invoked an anti-terrorism law. I hope we all feel safer now, right? For more background on Ramadan, read Abu Aardvark.
