Phyllis Schlafly to Receive Honorary Doctorate from Wash. U

by TFN

This is incredible:

Most of the graduating seniors at Washington University in St. Louis weren’t even born when Phyllis Schlafly led the successful campaign in the 1970s to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment. But they will get to learn about her at commencement ceremonies next week when the university awards her a doctorate of humane letters.

I can hardly bear to read on.

Fortunately, Crooked Timber has cut her (and the university) down to size.
