The Way The World Is

Says here that Lori Berenson, who dropped out of MIT in 1989 "to pursue a passion for social justice" by joining a Peruvian left-wing terrorist group, has been released from prison in Peru. Of course her loving, doctorate-equipped parents were there to welcome their unrepentant daughter. Which only goes to show that in her own person, Berenson embodies the very thing she claimed to be fighting against: the ability of the privileged white fool to escape the consequences her own folly visited upon "people of color." This week's Chelm award goes to the judge who paroled her.
